Manga Discussion Revamp

+ posted by Kaiten in Site News on May 19, 2014 18:58
The Manga Discussion Forums have been revamped. Manga will now be categorized by alphabetic order, rather than demographic. Series discussion threads and sub-forums have been dispersed between three alphabetical boards, # - H, I - R, and S - Z. Demographic designations will be added as prefixes, allowing subforums to be sorted by seinen, shounen, shoujo, josei, and kodomo manga. Meta tags will also be added at the bottom of every thread allowing threads to be searched by genre, mangaka, publisher, magazine, and demographic. Prefix searches sort one subforum, tags will search all forums for matching threads. We are currently in the process of adding prefixes and tags.

Manhwa, Manhua, and Boys Love will retain their own forums.

I do not like this idea, since I think it's far more efficient and better to categorize the manga titles by what type of manga it is.

I am also dont like this idea, why was such changes made? To make it easier for a new members to find stuff? But for example if i want to find a Shaman King, i will still need to use Search form (case his not on s-z list).
And another reason i dont like this is case most of the treads im reading was in shounen subforum, all of them on one page (SNK,Naruto,Bleach,HSDK,Claymore,FT and etc.) but now i need to jump across the forum to read em....not like this will stop me from reading or smthn, just kinda a little annoying.

What's the point of this change? The previous order of things was fine.

Thank you for the responses, everyone.

I think what we are trying to do is to give equal exposure to various series and demographics by using a more general categorization. With demographic categories, only certain sections are going active while the rest are deserted with lack of attention from members and visitors. This is an attempt to encourage members to check other series too, to enrich discussion, and to make the stay more enjoyable.

I can understand how it may not be comfortable for some of you. Even I still have problems of finding series I used to read. But it's a process, and I hope it will not prevent you all from making posts and exchanging opinions as usual.

If there are other points we need to improve with this new setting, do let us know. :)

I think it will still be better to have the type of manga in the title, and be able to find it without browsing through all the manga that start with the same letter. For example if I want to reach the Vagabond thread, I should be able to refine the search by having the seinen included in the title in the category S-Z . Besides this is not really giving the same chances to all the mangas, since only a few titles are present in the title bar.

a "boys love" zone ? Seriously ? You're missing a yuri and an hentai zone
