What's the difference between the two Help Needed subforums?
You may have noticed there are TWO Help Needed subforums:
Help Needed: Verify these Character Submissions
Help Needed: Verify these MANGA submissions
We've been getting a lot of character submissions for characters that are in anime AND manga. Like anime, we need to verify that the character is actually in the manga, and has the right relation (ie, a main, secondary or minor character). We've started denying submissions where the submitter has not marked/read the manga (since you can't always assume the character is in the manga too, and has the same relation), but currently there's a huge backlog of submissions in the ORIGINAL Help Needed forum, for manga that the moderators haven't read. Given there aren't a huge amount of manga fans on the site, this presents a problem and makes the moderators' lives difficult.
KiraRin had an awesome idea to create a second 'help needed' for the manga submissions to go into. This way, people who read manga can have an easy way to helping out in a big way, and we can easily separate what work is needed.
How it'll work
Starting now, moderators will move any manga-only character into Help Needed: Verify these MANGA submissions.
If a character is submitted with BOTH anime and manga relations, and moderators are able to confirm the anime portions, that part of the submission will be taken care of and the changes merged into the original submitted thread. That thread will then be moved into Help Needed: Verify these MANGA submissions for someone to confirm the remaining manga elements.
If you read manga, definitely help us out by helping submit what goes into the new subforum! I predict otherwise it'll become a black hole of limbo. ;_;
