    Default Uncompleted manga series

    Just wondering, if people have stopped working on projects or the scans cannot be found anywhere, could you let us know. It's helpful to know which series people have stopped working on. Thanks.

    The problem is, how would the sysops know? A lot of times, groups disband without announcing it, and only eventually can you figure out what happened. Others, a group may claim a project is being actively worked on, even though it's been a year since they released a chapter. There's no one central clearinghouse of who's claiming what, and the sysops here certainly don't have the time to do the research themselves. I'd rather they spend the effort collecting as many releases as they can -- and adding more.

    Could you just label the one's that haven't been updated in a while as unknown or something, so people know that they might take a while to update?

    Sort of like, if not blue, if the last update was more than a year ago, underline the link or something? I dunno if there's any way to code that to make it automatic. It's an interesting thought, though.

    Kane?

    Take a look at this URL here: http://stoptazmo.com/downloads/members/manga_series.php

    It shows you each series and it's last update. I think that might help you. Ignore the monitoring options though for now ... we have some last minute testing to do on that before we go public officially. We worked on everything for a good 2-3 hours today and hope to have the monitoring options done tomorrow.

    I hope that helps you. If the date is blank ... it means it has not been updated in a good year or so before we started recording the time of the last update via our download system.

    Sweeeeet. That is a most excellent feature there -- especially the monitoring. I assume that gives us some sort of ping if there's an update for that series?

    Yes, I was hoping to have it done last weekend, but I am hoping to test things tonight and make sure it's working before once again promoting it.

    It will send an email to you letting you know the series you are monitoring has updates.
