    Mmnnn well i dont think thats a problem for the enitre site. Must be the individuals because i've downloaded over 200 chapters from this site and it never cut off. And many more volumes (30mB) from others and they dont cut off. Besides if u want to get rid of that problem then get a downloader program, like get right or gozilla. Even Mozilla Firefox can resume downloads.

    Batching is actually a good idea i think because it saves people time from always staying on their comp. But yer i think there's something like IRC which i'm trying to learn rite now. Mmnn well anyway.... batching = good

    ^.^

    True, I do have IRC, but that doesn't make it any easier. First you need to find people willing to upload and then the thing you want. And I never said put them into pure batches. It would take up more room, true, but that isn't too bad I don't think, at least not until later on. Basically it would be nice to have a set that is in batches and a set that is not. I wouldn't complain so much if it wasn't a download number rather than a download speed problem that I have.

    Coder? I can do a little bit of coding work, but not much yet. I am learning still... sigh... I was wondering if it would be ok to start up basically a mirror site? (A site that is more for the older files)

    (Oh, and I love mozilla. It so awsome! I love the resume ability even though I haven't used it yet. Just the potential to use it is nice.)

    kyvier,

    OK apologized to all just found out that firefox 1.0.4's download manager is abled to resume but not opera 8.0's download manager. Guess it depends on the browser/download manager used.

    Oh and batching isn't always good. You will encounter a lot of this in IRC. Unless you got a high speed distro bot with 20+ slots open don't even think about batching 20-50 MB volume. Most of the time what you will encounter are bots with only 2-3 slots for concurrent downloads. Especially true when a group just release a new chapter and all bots are saturated or the fserve is a home user with limited bandwith. Now if those 2-3 slots are being used by dialups then expect to wait for hours before it's your turn. Now if 5 others ahead of you are dialups then you're out of luck unless whoever offering the files configures his/her server optimally. Then again that's up to the individual you don't really have any control over that.

    Having files in chapters give everyone a fairer chance of getting the files within reasonable time in that no one is hogging the bandwith for hours and yet don't penalize slower connection users by being place last in a queue even though they were the 1st one there.

    Batching is good in the case of bit-torrents though.

    Hmmm yer thats true about the new chapters. But for at least all of the old mangas such as GTO with over 150 chapters. And it is completed. Wouldn't it be easier to group them? Because it aint exactly popular so not many people will be downloading it. So therefore for someone like myself i would like the entire manga...but i cbb clicking on each chapter....waiting a few minutes and clicking on another one.

    So i agree with u that the popular downloads and new releases should be in chapters, but the old ones i think should be grouped. Or maybe hav both options o_O!!

    Um... how about putting a note on whether an entire serie is completed or not. That would help a lot.

    HahahA! ^o^

    Yer i agree with that! Not only hav the alphabetical order thing but also hav divided sections such as 'completed', 'active' and 'dropped'. That would help alot too. BUt yer still i think the biggest problem that i hav rite now is the number of chapters. I want all of the gto but i cbb dl all of those chapters one by one... V_V

    Kyniver. Actually if you want to do batching probably the best medium to handle this is bit torrent. It saves stoptazmo bandwidth.

    Anyway having "Complete" after the series name would be nice. However not sure about "Active", "Dropped" since this site just host mangas not scanlating them. They can do as suggested but that requires effort/time in checking the status of dropped manga to see if it was picked up again by another group i.e. like Pastel.

    To nekonthehat

    Ahhhh true thats rite. Sorry i keep forgetting that this is a hosting site. -_-" my bad.

    Mmmn well i've been trying to use MIRC to do it but...it seems to hard to understand and i heard that there's alot of hackers in that program so i just gave it up....

    Well i guess batching has its negatives and its positives i guess.

    Hmmm... But what if you could do both batches and non-batches? I mean, I really dislike bit-torrent cause I tend to get packages larger than my harddrive space. I was thinking that it would be nice to have both. And I tend to have problems on IRC. I am currently trying to figure out how to make a place to host batched files.
