I'm also against everyone having access on uploading files. This results more risks than benefits on the server. What would be best is to have teams. E.g., Have one person or two to monitor 10 titles or a certain number of titles. This shouldnt' be hard with the help of mangaupdates. They have a "My list" where you can monitor what chap your at and beside the title is the current available scanlated chapter. Then they can compile a list and notify you of the updates with links to the forums, irc, etc if you prefer it. Hence, control is still on your hands but you wouldn't need to check for updates. The task becomes just downloading.
