No need for that, as you said, we have the Dropped/Abandoned status.

Myeah... If anything, it'd just serve as a way to exclude them from a search, unless there is already a way to do so? :/

Edit: Since the dropped/abandoned status isn't a tag, it can't be put in the excluded tags search criteria, I mean.

Hitoribocchi no OO Seikatsu ch40 should be listed under volume 4, not 3.

My google fu failed me searching for a RSS feed of "Recently Added", so I created a feed https://serval.gitlab.io/feeds/dynasty.xml, is updated hourly. I hope someone can find it helpful.

EDIT: There is multiple available RSS feeds. See bellow.

There's multiple available RSS feeds.

Recently Released
Recently Added
And then there's one other that depends on a user-specific token which returns a listing of the most recently released chapters of things you're subscribed to. I don't know how to go about it on Chrome but on Firefox you can view all available feeds on a page if you right click->view page info then click the feeds tab.

OMG. I do not know why I did not look there in the first place, embarrassing. Thanks a lot for telling me.

Is it possible to have another resizing option for webtoons? I believe the current resizing option is to whatever the original scanlators have it, and then the standard 1200px height. Some webtoons have very long panels/long width which makes this current resizing option illegible. I think a resize by width would be useful too for a better reading experience. 750px would be a good width I think.

Sorry if this was already asked or silly to suggest, but the option to blacklist more than 5 things could be cool.

Is there a search function for the forum? I wanted to see if anyone brought the following points before posting but oh well:
1) I think I saw a mention of an app for Dynasty scans a while ago but it was either for a really old Android version and abandoned or there was some sort of legal issue so development stopped?
Are there any plans on bring that back, not necessarily via any of the official app distributes?
2) Auto conversion of files from any scale to a standard one (going back to the point mentioned in the first page). I think the auto scaling feature only works on the client side, but can it be implemented while it is submitted in order to make all pages of the same scale?
This might not be practical at all times given the various formats that manga can appear in, so feel free to chalk that off if it was considered.

There's no forum search no, but if you do a site search (Google does it, not sure how it works on other engines) on the forum URL it works.

Agreed that a forum search would be a good plus to Dynasty, would avoid people to make several threads for the same subject.

Also, it would be cool to be able to use .gif as profile picture, and maybe to allow users to have a signature. I have no idea if it's easy to implement though, coding has always been a mystery to me.

GIFs as profile pictures

Wouldn't allowing GIFs open the can of worms that is animated GIFs? Those are super annoying. GIFs also have larger file size than the same image in JPEG.

Signatures

I like the clean look of the discussions. Everything in the thread (apart from the user data on the left) is either dates or posts. Signatures would add clutter - I believe people usually skip reading them anyways. The only practical use for a signature I can see on this site is to declare what scanlation group you belong to and what your role in it is. Maybe only allow signatures for those people, and only for that use? EDIT: Nevermind, just checked and realized that registered scanlator group representatives already have the group listed in their user info on the left. This means there is absolutely no use for a signature.

If signatures are implemented, I propose to only accept plain text (so they don't grab your attention with large or coloured text or images), limit the length, and render them in small and/or grey text below a horizontal line.

Allowing any kind of advertising - even scanlator group recruitment - in a signature would only guarantee the person's posts would always be off-topic (except in the recruitment thread).

Great, that was supposed to be a secret from Ropp.

Gif is fairly unnecessary but allowing pngs would be a nice decision since jpegs don't allow transparency. (Also in many cases pngs have a smaller filesize than jpegs anyways.)

Doubt the old one is ever coming back, but you can use the unofficial Android reader. It's not actively developed but does work and critical bugs will be fixed if reported.

Notification

We need a notification system where we will be notified when someone tags or quotes us.

This is really important.

I don't know how the the page for uploading is, but would it be difficult to add 2 more boxes for prequel and sequel and if there is one of the two, or both, it would show up on a chapter next to the 'release post' link?

This is naturally for one-shots that wasn't expected to have sequels and such, not for series/anthologies.

This could really work, I'm going to ask about it.

Awesome. I also meant it would have the link to the work that is a sequel or prequel. If it wasn't clear. Cause I sometimes forget to add details.

Like, if it's:

Box - Upload chapter ----- Name, Author, etc.

Box - Prequel: Link to it.
Box - Sequel: Link to it.

Something like that, and then those links will show up next to the 'release post' or somewhere better.
