Mangahelpers! Friends! Leechers! Forum Lurkers!
Today is a new day for you all on MangaHelpers.com as we can proudly announce to you the latest revamp of our website. The brilliant minds of Lekima for the original design, Osso for the coding that happens behind the scenes and Nimloth working on the frontend have all come together to bring you what you're seeing now.
So, that's good and all, right -- but how does it benefit you?
While this facelift does not bring about any immediate added features other than a real news system, a manga cloud to show what's popular and a section showing off you, our precious contributors at MangaHelpers. What has been heavily changed could be what you call "under the hood" as far as our website goes (not the forums) has been taken out, modified, rebuilt and customized specifically to our needs. You may remember times when the website was slow due to features on the main page, or even times where the website was down due to too high traffic.
- Well, gone are those days indeed.
MangaHelpers.com is in a transition - a transition aiming to become the number one manga fansite community on the net. Yes, it is a steep goal but while we feel confident that you, our loyal fans and members, already make us the best Manga community, we can reach higher and improve on ourselves for everyone's benefit.
This website redesign has been in the making for a few months, and will continue to be developed for a long, long time to come. Plans for features, services, benefits and rewards for our community and user base have been discussed and drawn up, and this change to our framework allows us to rapidly develop the website tools which will benefit you all.
To show which direction we are headed, we've also taken the time to revamp our Downloads and Releases section. Before, it was quite limited with important areas being neglected. But we believe we've organized it a bit better this time around and hope that the areas that you'd find most helpful are right at your finger tips.

We hope that you will follow us over the coming months as we deploy the services you want, aggregate the content you want, and ultimately give you the perfect tool for ALL your Manga needs.
