MAL doesn't have the scanlation tracking which is the only reason I use Baka-Updates. Anyway, it's probably just temporary issues.

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?

>>115762050

Smart decision.

>I would either lag behind on the releases hard or not even bother try to stay up to date anymore.
Okay.

>It would make my scanlations reading experience much more annoying altogether.
Because you don't know of the other ways to keep track of things.
>>
>>115762141
Did you really ask this?

>>115762050
Then keep up with all those 50 manga manually like everyone else does. If you can't then you're weak and a faggot.

I hate dropping series, so I soldier on even through the mediocre ones. Definitely not smart, but I can't say I regret it.

>>115762218
It's easy for you to say when all you read are MangaStream releases.

Why so much hate for this site?
What's so bad about a site that allowa you to track the manga that you read? Does this site harm someonoe in any form?

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.

Google Reader

Why?
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.

>>115762418
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.

Why do you faggots have to freak out over everytime there's a little downtime?
>>
/server irc.irchighway.net

lets ask them
>>
>>115762418
That's the case of most websites, including 4chan. At least on MU you don't have to deal with the community at all if you don't want to, so it's way better than MAL.
>>
>>115762461
pretty sure MAL's the MAL of manga

>>115766482
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.

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
>>
>>115767805
I was gonna reply seriously but I noticed you type like a child.
>>
Anything still got the MU database dump? I probably have it somewhere, but I'd have to find it in amongst my crap.
>>
>>115765894
Not him but I used to DL directly from the FTP. Why did they disallow this? I don't want to make an account.
>>
>>115767956
Probably going to be hard to find it then
>>
>>115767915
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
>>
>>115768114
>obsessively listing
It's more like obsessively following. Never out of date on hundreds of series.
>>
>>115768114
being an ass won't help
>>
>>115766482
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.
>>
>>115768254
You should probably learn Japanese to stay on top of things better
>>
At least I have a snapshot of my reading list from 3 months ago.
>>
>>115768162
I'm responding appropriately

>>115768156
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
>>
>>115763465
CR can't even track their own releases consistently. MU was arguably better at tracking releases on CR than CR was.
>>
>>115768466
No, I enjoy everything I read a lot.
>>
>>115768513
how
>>
>>115768612
Because they actually listed them somewhere. And most of the series.
>>
>>115765489
wtf ever happened to the whole #MTArchival shit? Is Kami really it? Wasn't Sakisan and Blue going to release a torrent fucking months ago?
>>
>>115768699

>>
>>115768753
Whatever happened to Sakisan and Blue anyway?
>>
>>115768314
Too lazy for that right now, maybe later.
But it won't help keeping track of hundreds of manga
>>
>>115768753
>wtf

>>115768778
Can you see what series were released yesterday without looking up every single series? I thought not.
>>
>>115768820
It would help you get through more manga and not wait on scanlations
>>
>>115768818
Took the manga and ran

>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.
>>
>>115769077
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.
>>
>>115768436
>>115768931
>>115769016
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.
>>115769158
Funny, just last year any "wtf" etc. would be looked down upon. Enjoy neo/a/.
>>
>>115768000
It's not an account, it's just a username and password so they don't have to keep changing it every month.
>>
>>115769204
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.

Ah, yeah, that might be the case but I rarely ever start series that are one or two chapters old, so I never had a problem with that.

That's worse than wtf. Go back to /v/.

Lock him in a room, tell him to try and invent something better than 10bit, and watch him overwork himself to death.

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.
>>
>Daiz
>Work
You mean assign people to do work for him, then spam on /a/ as if he's Jesus taking credit for it.
>>
>>115769560
They already stopped officially linking to any scanlation sites. There's nothing legally wrong with what they're currently doing.
>>
Just wondering, was MU having money/donation troubles?
>>
>>115769734
Doubt it, it's not like MT, there's nothing big on MU's servers.
>>
>>115769501
>>115769649
>>
>>115769669
I know. There also was nothing legally wrong with linking to the sites though.
>>
>>115769669
There was nothing legally wrong with links to scanlation groups either. All that case showed us was that MU will obey with any and all DMCA notices they receive.
>>
>>115765824
>>115766250
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.
>>
>>115769879
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.
>>
>>115766614
>Pretty sure you'd start forgetting what even happened in a ton of those titles.
You wouldn't forget if you weren't retarded.
>>
>>115769865
>>115769876
True but at least there companies could argue that they were linking to infringing material.
>>
>>115769879
>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.

That poll happened a long time ago and most people seemed to despise it for being fucking retarded.

>>115769970
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.

Only some months ago.
>>
>>115770071
>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.
That's probably because you're retarded.
>>
MU already took a massive hit when they couldn't directly link to scanlator websites

If it dies at this point I might just switch to online readers to keep track.
>>
Weren't anidb going to start doing manga as well like 5 years ago?
>>
>>115770446
>massive hit
Only from people too stupid to spend 10 seconds googling for the script
>>
>>115770323
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.
>>
I like how there are people trying to feel a sense of superiority by not using a manga tracking website.
>>
>>115770595
>Sure I'm retarded
Glad we agree
>>
>>115761274
Given that b-u is still up this is probably just a momentary blip.

Why would I need a list of the anime I've watched? How am I supposed to remember every anime I've watched before MAL launched to make the list accurate?

You mean exactly like your followed batoto rss feed?

>>115771181
Of course it's not dead for good, this is just /a/ sperging out as /a/ is prone to do. B-U itself is currently up.
>>
>>115771181
RSS can do the same. And can be even faster if you follow the groups directly.

I wish I could add a feed for a single manga release
>>
>>115771307
Completed to ongoing is still a 5 to 1 ratio. Part of the fun of some series is the waiting and shounenshit gets my through waiting for releases every week sometimes.
>>
>>115771345
Hence filters. You guys really don't think your complaints through, do you?
>>
>>115771345
You really don't know jack shit about rss do you?
>>
>>115771321
>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.
>>
>>115771467
>I used to use purely RSS but it got a bit too cumbersome and the feeds all died.
Doesn't sound very practical to me.
>>
how do you guys keep up with anime releases if you're not using rss
>>
>>115771593
I wait for someone to make a thread on /a/.
>>
>>115771545
Liken that to MU dying. I thought I'd just try something different. It's still slower than pure feeds, which is why I still use some of them.
>>
Solution: don't read manga
>>
>>115771593
I download everything from a DDL website, and I just have to look at the newly uploaded items to see what's been released. As easy as that.
>>
>>115771736
What's the question? And what does this seek to solve?
>>
>>115771696
>dying
Yeah, no. And while I agree that MU is slower, it's still way simpler to keep track with it.
>>
>>115771775
>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.
>>
Why is /a/ so casual?
>>
>>115771837
But that doesn't track what I've already read! A new solution must be required.

How do you fags keep track of manga, LN updates, and other information without MU?

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?
>>
>>115772208
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.
>>
>>115772903
Why that guy?

>>115772903
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.
>>

And people tell me manga threads are better than it's anime counterpart.
>>
>Server goes down

>>115775326
Wasn't that because he doesn't archive images over 2 weeks old? Fuck him.

Nothing on their twitter site so it's probably their servers are down. Of course, I can't use twitter for shit so I might be wrong.
>>
>>115777208
It's definitely better than the nyaa freakout threads.
