HAha, yeah. I had to upload the car as I could not find me original picture :(

Well, with the forum signatures.. they are simply linked to instead of being uploaded. Where as avatars can only be uploaded.

Signatures are supposed to be below 728x60.. but as people had hugge images - I had to automatically resize them. Whilst this visually resizes them, it does not reduce the file size.

Avatars are set to a maximum width and height when uploaded, which means I can control the file sizes of them.

Smaller file sizes, means faster page loads (especially when the content is hosted on our servers). That's why you will often find manga at horribly low quality on some sites - because they are trying to save bandwidth and speed.

I could allow users to link to any image they want for the avatar. However, seeing as most people upload an avatar, and not the majority of people do not have an image in their signature) - I decided to have users upload it instead.

What i'm trying to say. Is. Having control over the avatars that people upload, allows the forums (especially) to run nice and quick.

Thinking about it.. I could let people specify their own URLs for the avatars.. i'll have to give that some more thought, though.

Sorry for the essay, there.

Hey Suika, thanks for that!

Your ideas or suggestions are not a problem at all

When the site was made, it was mine and only mine. When I introduced forums, I opened up a whole new way for members to interact with. As time progresses, it's become apparent that the site belongs to everyone.. not just me. Every member has a right to make suggestions - which I always take into consideration!

I love the fact that users of the site have ideas about how they'd like it to be, and have a way to express it.

Your suggestions are helpful, and not a bother at all

And i've just realised - we do not just have a 'smile' icon.. odd.

As you may recall, there was a 'broken image' button introduced around 2 weeks ago.

After all of the hype of everyone pressing the new button to see what it does (haha), we are making good progress.

Every single report has been manually checked, and updated with the fixed image where possible.

We have fixed around 1000 images. Around 1200 were not broken. And replacements could not be found for around 150 of them (Many Dragonball images, it would seem).

Big thanks to everyone who has been reporting the images. Managing this site takes a lot of time. It's nice to know that as a community we can help fix little errors :D

Ooorly. I never noticed that.

It was never supposed to be either. I tested that it uploaded gif, jpg, jpeg and png when I made it - but I guess I never tested animated gifs. I'll take a look at that :)

EDIT: I tell a lie. Looking back over the script - I remember now.

I'll not bore you with the details, but it revolves around trying to resize an animated gif (all images that you upload for your profile picture are checked, resized, optimised.. if they are too big). To resize the image, whilst trying to keep the animation is a little trickier than you might think. It involves either installing extra software onto the server, or first getting all of the frames from the animation, saving them separately, and then putting them back together

EDIT: Now I don't have my original avatar as I uploaded a small animation, bah!

Hey pixiedust, sorry for not getting back to you earlier.

We don't have a system in place at the moment to change your email (this is due to back when there was no member system, and people could just subscribe with their email. The problem is, not every email has a username.. so it's difficult. We should be implementing this in the near future, though)

But, send me a PM with your email address and I will change it for you :)

We are in the process of upgrading the server that runs Mangable. The new server out-performs the current server in everyway possible.

One major advantage is much larger harddrives, which means *tons* more manga. There is already about 2,000 new series waiting to be added. The current server has relatively small space, which is why we are limited to the amount of series we can add.

The new server will allow faster access to pages and manga, quicker response times and cope much better all day round.

This notice is just to let you know that while the upgrade is taking place, there may be instances of downtime/slowness. There will be a period where the site may be unavailable for a couple of hours within the next few of days.

Good idea Allen!

If we had thought about this earlier, we could have had a proper poll! Doh. I will remember for the end of 2011 ;)

Hey twutle, thanks for your concerns.

First of all, adverts are needed to pay for the servers that run the website. I made it so that users, who are logged in, do not see ANY advertisements.

I will assume that you were logged out, however.

Our advertisements are actaully managed by an external organsation called the Rubicon Project. Whilst i'm not saying that it's impossible, It is *highly* unlikely that they would have let an advert such as this slip through (and even if it were to, much larger sites would have reported this by now as it is a very unwated type of advert)

If this happens again, be sure to send me a message with the manga page URL, and the URL of the site where you are redirected. In which case, we can then forward the concern onto the appropriate ad serving company to get it removed immediatley.

To make sure, it may be worth noting
  • It would be common for PCs that are infected with adware/malware to do this (redirect automatically)
  • Advertisers are not permitted to redirect traffic automatically

It's unfortunate that you got redirected regardless. But if you are 100%, be sure to forward me on the details the next time it does happen.
