MT FAQ Integrated Into Main Site
Posted by Yukimura on 09/09/2010 11:52 am
The Mangatraders FAQ has (finally) been integrated into the main site. It can be viewed at http://www.mangatraders.com/faq. Previously the FAQ was housed in a disorganized forum thread which relatively few people seem to have consulted. The new FAQ format should be much simpler to use and thus learn from so maybe some of the questions I am constantly being asked will stop coming in so frequently...
I invite everyone to look over the FAQ for all the knowledge it contains about how the site's features work. Additionally, any feedback on what information seems to be missing or inaccurate would be appreciated, provided it comes from people who have used the site long enough to know the what they're talking about. Some of the answers in the FAQ have not been updated in years and the site and has evolved considerably since then. If you see something that seems completely wrong or you think of something that seems to be missing post it in this thread. Don't PM them to me or I will find you and poke your eyes out in your sleep. PMing to other (Website) staff members is fine with me but I can't speak to their readiness to do any eye poking.
Mangatraders Joins Twitter
Posted by Yukimura on 06/23/2010 1:56 pm
In what may go down as the most questionable move in our history starting today Mangatraders will begin making use of Twitter as our official secondary news and announcements location. In the event of the site going offline like what happened last week @mangatradernews on twitter will be the only official place to get accurate information about what's going on with the site (other than our IRC channel). Major announcements made while the site is still running will likely be linked to via twitter as well so if you never pay attention to the front page and its news posts this will give you another opportunity to stay current on Mangatraders news.
For some reason we will also be posting an update to @mangatraders every time a new file is added to the site (not my idea FYI). Be advised that there will be no filtering on these updates so if you're one of the people who has a problem with certain types of files uploaded to the site you're better off just ignoring the feed completely.
EDIT: Update - In response to some of the comments below @mangatraders will continue to post new file announcements, however for all real news and commentary from the mangatraders staff follow @mangatradernews.
Manga Take Down Request(s) Recieved
Posted by Yukimura on 01/08/2008 1:19 pm
EDIT: On Wednesday January 9th, Approximately 48 hours after receiving a request to remove files licensed to Digitam Manga Publishing, Mangatraders.com received an official takedown request from Tokyopop Inc. The list of series we've been asked to remove is approximately 4 pages long and it was not sent in a format conducive to copying so I can't post them all here. Check this list to get an idea of what is probably going to have to be taken down. From analyzing the list we can tell it was definitely created on or around January 6th, 2008.

On Monday January 7th, Mangatraders received an email from the General Manager I.T. & Business Management of Digital Manga Publishing.
Requesting that we remove any links to files relating to the following series. Unfortunately a (crappy) court decision also set a precedent that prevents us from linking to any alternative locations specifically for the purpose of downloading these files, but know that I would if I could because I care about you people that much.
In any case the following series have been taken down.
Akuma no Himitsu
Alcohol Shirt and Kiss
Ano Kado Wo Magatta Tokoro
Bokudake no Ousama
G Senjou no Neko
Harem de Hitori
Ikoku Irokoi Romantan
Koi wa Istumo Arashi no You ni
Only the Ring Finger Knows
Sky Over My Spectacles
The Day of Revolution
Trouble Double Face
