Hi, i'm new here and i'm trying to import my reading list.

I already transferred all my reading list except "The Beginning After The End" by TurtleMe.

I can't seem to find it. Please help me find it or notify the mods if it is not added yet.

Thanks in advance.

Don't bother. I will reject it. MangaUpdates doesn't allow OEL webcomics to be listed

Basically only OEL that have print are allowed on the site.

If you want a database that supports Web only OEL than use animeplanet. Though the numbers are much less than mangaupdates the OEL is.more

Ok, Thanks for the suggestions.

I will not bother it as it's the only title that i don't have on my list.

I will stick to this website, because from what i have seen from most site in the internet, this site has the easiest to use and the most user friendly UI in tracking mangas.

Thanks again.

I thought "The Beginning After The End" (TBATE) also have print? Or is it not?

Isn't the Beginning after the End, a novel?

Does OEL stand for Original English Language?
If it is i thought TBATE is an Korean Webnovel
(I only know the author is TurtleMe and the only info i know is that he was born in Korea)

No, The Beginning After the End is an OEL -- it was written originally in English and then translated into different languages. (I've also found no indication that TurtleMe is Korean, just that he graduated from Berkeley, though who knows, maybe he is. Regardless, OEL refers to the language in which the work is originally published, and in that case, it is English.)

Also, there are kindle editions of the novel, but they're essentially self-published, I believe. I don't think that counts by MU's standards of having print volumes.

I think that it is wrong to call TBATE an OEL comic. The original novel the comic is based on is written in English, but the webcomic itself is the whole different story, as it is originally publishing in Korean by Korean company called Tapaz. Tapaz is a Korean company, and TBATE belongs to their Tapas Originals series and officially publishes there. Thus, TBATE is rather a manhwa then OEL comic. And as far as I know, manhwas are allowed to be listed here.

Considering that, would you mind to explain why any attempts to add it to the site are declined?

So.... the Original Novel version is OEL, but the webcomics is not OEL? 🤔
And after all these years, I only found out about the comic version artist are actually Indonesian? Whoaaa.....
So the not novel version are not OEL ? 😅

Where's your source for these claims? Tapas started out as an English webcomics company founded by a Korean American. It wasn't bought by Kakao until 2021 (which is long after TBATE started).

Furthermore, the Korean version of TBATE started publishing on Kakao in June 2019, while the Tapas English version began on July 2018. I think it's pretty clear that the English is the original here.

Also, even if Tapas had originally been owned by a Korean company from the beginning (which, again, it hadn't), the fact is that the first version of TBATE is in English, so it's an OEL; it's that simple. MU also doesn't list English-original LINE webcomics like Lore Olympus or whatever, despite LINE being a subsidiary of Naver.
