I'd agree, but it's not just series manga discussion that's effected. Most recent threads in Otaku Cafe were started by destiny, Asarii, or me. It's rare to see new threads started on the demographic main boards too. Not that I am complaining or mad or anything. I'm hoping to encourage anyone who is interested, and a little worried that members might feel discouraged.
It looks like there are simply less people here without the scanlations. Conversations drift to where scans are posted.
Suggestion: How bout allowing larger avatar and and sig sizes? Doesn't have to be a massive update or change but other forums of this kind have members with larger signatures or avatars including the over all kb limit.
huge ava and sigs look ugly.
sorry to disagree.
but comparing to other places, generally members like more room for their ava's and sigs to be displayed. It gives the members more room to express themselves through their signatures and avatars / work.
Avatars = Max size is 100x100
Signatures = Max overall image size is 550x170
So ugly = If they were increased by a small proportion!? If they were increased 2x the current sizes then yes. However, if they were increased by...I dunno say... 150x150 and 600x200 I don't think it would hurt too much.
I'm not too concerned about the dimensions of the avatars or signatures tbh. I would prefer to see the filesize limit changed/increased a bit then anything else really. =)

I think we can handle that.
We now allow avatars to be 125x125px. Sig pics can be 600x200. With text we allow up to 220px high. I'll add it to the rules in the morning, the system will allow larger avy and sigs now.
KB allowed will stay the same. I can look into an increase but would need to check into what effect it will have on our servers, how it could effect load times. I can't promise much though
Never mind, I should have promised more. We now allow up to 400kb for sigs. Previously 300kb, if anyone was wondering.

An interesting idea. We would have to work out the logistics of it, there are a lot of threads, but I'm sure it can be done. I'll alert people who are better at these type of things than me.
what about youtube or video on forum?
Sorry, not 100% sure what you mean Do you mean the ability to embed a video into a post? Like on the front page news post eg this one?
this one is a dead link . And I've noticed it for some others one too.
On some kosmetic aspect, I have some question about the subscription threads that one can see in our User control panel. Could it be possible to have a confirmation message when one unsubscribe to a thread (there is one for the subscription) ? With the tiny screens of the mobile phones, it's quite easy to click on them out of purpose. Also could we subscribe to forums ? Like to be aware when a new thread is created in this forum. There are some that I think I would be interested in. And maybe that would help in making people make more.
Speaking about visibility, I'm wondering on how the threads like the featured manga, the manga news,... are noticed by the community. They contains really useful contents but I'm afraid they are a bit too secretive
I'm not sure if an email can be sent when you unsubscribe to a thread. I can look into but it might take a bit, I'd need to look through forum settings.
You can subscribe to forums. Go to the 'forum tools' drop down, next to 'search this forum'. There is an option to subscribe to a forum. You'll get an alert in your control panel whenever there is a new post in the forum or it's sub-forums. The display in control panel will look a bit like the forum index.
For notification of new posts I would either subscribe to our RSS feed, follow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook. Any post made on the homepage is automatically Tweeted, there are updates on Facebook every time a post is made. There is not a subscription function, since the hompage is not part of the forum. I hope that answers your question.
