Okay, let me reword that.
I'm currently reading around 50 manga (with active scanlators releasing chapters at irregular intervals) and I would either lag behind on the releases hard or not even bother try to stay up to date anymore. It would make my scanlations reading experience much more annoying altogether.
Does that sound better?

Because you don't know of the other ways to keep track of things.
I hate dropping series, so I soldier on even through the mediocre ones. Definitely not smart, but I can't say I regret it.
>Because you don't know of the other ways to keep track of things.
If you've got better options, I'm all ears.
It's easy for you to say when all you read are MangaStream releases.
Well, I thought about it, but in my opinion the advantages of MU well outweight the drawbacks. Granted it doesn't die, that is.
What's a good RSS feed tracker, by the way? I used Firefox's internal RSS feed tracker back then but it wasn't very handy.
I was asking a honest question. I seriously don't understand why people is hating so much on this site. I always thought it was a handful tool.
If you're talking about the comunity then I have nothing to say, fari enough I guess. I only use the site to track manga and nothing else so I wouldn't know anyways.
Licences. We ain't got no licences. We don't need no licences. I don't have to show you no stinkn' licences
Pls tell me its not dead. It was like a complete database of almost every manga ever released (it give you the author, magazine that it was published and other important stuff to track more obscure mangas or mangas without scanlation).
That's what people said about MangaTraders and now we're all clinging to an ftp that was supposed to be a temporary solution and an alternative to what Woxxy, Daiz and co had in mind.
Why does everything Daiz involves himself with always go to shit?
>we're all clinging to an ftp that was supposed to be a temporary solution and an alternative to what Woxxy, Daiz and co had in mind.
Well, the MT archive did get uploaded, so what more do you want?
There's gonna be a new naming scheme they said.
We're working on the new site they said.
Torrents soon they said.
Now, we're just trying a temporary solution, like this >>115765575
anon said. Great as it is, you've got to admit that it's really disorganized and no one's at fault since it was supposed to be a stop-gap at best.
>implying daiz was gonna set it up an MT alternative when him and his goons were the ones that hacked MT to begin with
>implying daiz's attempt to kill fansubbing by shutting nyaa down wasn't foiled by TT still being alive and using magnet links
>implying daiz wasn't on /h/ defending his piece of shit business partner Jacob still hosting bootleg scanlation content he has no legal right to be hosting, while trying to pretend to be a legit business to Wani
reminder that the guy in charge of the ftp is in the uk and its only a matter of time before this bleeds over to the main site
It didn't work. I followed exactly what it said in the read me and looked at the pastebin too to double check if what I was doing was correct. I don't know what the problem is.
I've actually seen this happen in real life more than once. Some people shouldn't be allowed to use computers.
Score another victory for the Manga Anime Guardians!
700 is in excess, I agree. But since some manga only release chapters montlhly, and scanlators usually add even more time, it's not uncommon nor unrealistic to be reading a large number of publications if you enjoy the medium.
So no answers are actually coming up. I hope it's nothing bad, I don't want to deal with having to track shit using multiple sites. In any case, I can't see any reason for MU to get forcibly taken off.
Why does it seem like the internet is dying one site at a time?
>Don't be surprised when moot asks you to login in to facebook.
what is wrong with you people
why are you tracking anything
Im now reading manga that finished months ago because I lost track but it's not like I didn't have anything else to do during
manga or anime is not nearly so demanding to have spreadsheets over they dobt disappear
Oh excuse me I'm sure I missed out on quite the essay on the merits of obsessively listing my korean media and their updates
I should've ran that through spellcheck damn my quick posting
In my case, about a third is manga with dead scans or on hiatus, that i want to know if it resumes.
Another third is manga that i am reading on an irregular basis.
Only one third i actually read and some of it is stuff like berserk.
I also keep track of which point i dropped a series.
I'm responding appropriately
Do you not like the things you read? If you like it you'd come back to it naturally
This is like making lists out of some obligation
If you miss out of an update you miss out, you can check it anytime
We should promote more reading list threads. I've nuked my list like nearly a dozen times and across a bunch of different sites over the years.
It has the entire MT database dumbfuck.
>tfw MAL and MU are both up to date
If they don't both go down at the same time, I'm safe.
Even if it all goes down, I'm still fine considering I don't stream anything, so I just gotta check which is the latest chapter I downloaded for each mango.
They happen on their own sometimes. I haven't seen one in ages though. It's not like anyone bothers to read through all of them. Although it's usually pitiful to see how depressingly low level some of /a/ is.
You can export your lists. Not sure where I can import it to as it is in a .txt file and in alphabetical order so it is in no way easily read.
Funny, just last year any "wtf" etc. would be looked down upon. Enjoy neo/a/.
I wrote a MU to MAL importer for kicks. It's impossible for MAL to be up to date, they're missing lots of shit or shit that is just wrong. I also write a script to update my MAL every time I completed a series which works maybe 70% of the time without any special title search.
MU will be fine. It might be getting ddosed though but they are kowtowing to any demands officials make of them. Though I guess they might eventually have to stop updating manga with unofficial scanlations.
The King is dead.
mangaupdates was useful because you could generate a list of manga that are all completely Scanlated, all Seinen/Shounen/whatever and all specific genres. Basically filtering all manga and narrowing them down to things you're in the mood for.
it also told you when and who scanlated things so you can find their websites if you need to.
It's funny cause most shitty reader sites don't even list who did them anymore. And Batoto is missing loads of series. MU also sometimes noted when a series was finished but not on any online reader anywhere. It meant that it existed somewhere, even if there wasn't any easy way to find it.
>it also told you when and who scanlated things so you can find their websites if you need to.
This is the important part. Batoto's DB is nowhere as near as comprehensive.
>but they removed muh links
Easily fixed with the script.
When it's been three or four years or several hundred titles of reading later, the last thing I'm going to remember is their names.
>a long time ago
Only some months ago.
Sure I'm retarded for not being able to remember several thousand character names at worst which are astonishingly similar. Sure I can probably remember the MC or two, but trying to remember thousands of side character names after long periods of time is self harm.
It can be a clusterfuck to follow sometimes
>tfw had at one point ~100 feeds for manga
>scanlators would do like 5+ series and I only read 1 of theirs
>they update all the time and I check my feed when I get updates and its all for shit I dont read
I wish I could add a feed for a single manga release
>Convince me it can be more practical.
I use a combination of both. I used to use purely RSS but it got a bit too cumbersome and the feeds all died. I usually just follow the groups I look out for most these days. I'm just saying it's not really any less practical.
>What's the question?
'How do I keep track of the manga I read without MU?'
Answer: don't read manga. Can't keep track of a medium you don't partake in, unless you like wasting time.
>filter releases by genre with adding colors title e.g Seninen, shounen, mature, yuri, yaoi etc
>click titles with color on new releases to discover series that might interest you
Can't get simpler than that really. Also useful to find status and information such as status, publishers, authors blogs/pivix, native names etc
>Shit site full of underage sub human
Sir, do you not know anything about the website you're on right now? And I fail to see how that even matters you autistic fuck. Who cares what a site's userbase is like if you never enter any chat/forums/comments/etc. and simply use it as the highly useful tool that it is?
I still don't know why people think the community is so awful in the first place. Granted I don't visit the rest of the site at all, but it's way less cancerous than most other places. They even have reasonable suggestions sometimes. The only thing of note is the notable proportion of females and yaoi releases, but there's just as many scanlators of that stuff in the first place.
The guy who runs archive.moe should archive it for posterity when it comes up.
I could do it myself but it would take a long-ass time to save hundreds of thousands of pages on a shitty home connection.
Who is that guy? I saw him replacing foolz place, and he single handily opened up the archive for several boards that everyone else was having trouble to archive for(case being /v/ and /vg/. Also even more other boards.
