  • Why doesn't my postcount go up?

    Posts in Fun Forum, Naruto Playground, One Piece Playground, and El Campo de Batalla de las Almas don't count to your overall postcount.

    Why does my postcount go down?

    Your post(s) have been deleted by mods/admins for various reasons.
  • Sometimes, posts are deleted because they contain spams.
  • Occasionally, forum leaders conduct forum-cleaning to clean up some of the older threads; so if your posts are in those threads, your postcount will go down.
  • Who are these notable people with different colored names?

    Adminstrators are generally people who have control over the entire forum. They are the people who maintain the forum and keep it in good shape. If you have any questions regarding this forum, you can PM any one of them.

    Global Moderators are people who have power to moderate every section of the forum. If you want to ask anything about modding this forum, or if you want to report anything inappropriate that you see on the forum, such as spamming, double/triple posts and such, these are the people you can look for.

    Translator/Moderators are some of our very talented and hard working staff that both translates and moderates. Usually they do both for the same section, but may translate more series than they moderate for!

    Mangahelpers are people who are given limited and specific power over certain boards, i.e. General Discussion. If you have specific questions or topics that you want to ask or report, they will be your best bet. They are quite all-rounded so you can as well look for them if you need any assistance.

    Techs are staff members that deal with the overall structure of this forum. They deal with complicated stuff like PHP and such which keeps this forum running smoothly. If you have any inquiries regarding the technical part of the forum, then you can ask these people, though they love to hide and don't post very much on the forums.

    Translators are people who translate Japanese RAW manga to English. We have different translators for different manga too. You can always ask them anything about their translations or just general translation questions.

    Scanlators are people who take the Japanese RAW manga and translation and put them together so you can read the manga in the language of your preference.

    International Translators are those translators who translate different mangas from English to different languages in the world. So far, we have Portugese, Swedish, Spanish, Russian, German ...etc. translators. If you need a specific translation for certain languages, these are the people you should seek out for.

    RAW Providers are people who go out and find the Japanese RAWs of manga. They may use Japanese P2Ps like Winny and Share, or go out and buy, then scan the mangas themselves.

    MH Senpai are former staff members who are recognized for all the hard work and dedication they've put into the site over the years.

    MH Artists are people who contribute art regularly to the Art & Stories section of the forum as well as participate in our weekly and seasonal art contests.
