Hi, I'm from mangapirate.net.
I came to post here because I think one of the people in charge of approving new updates might be willfully removing/ignoring our chapter update submissions. It's been over 6 hours since we submitted updates for review, and yet those chapters that released after ours were approved first, while our submission was very probably willfully removed/ignored. I think one of your mods is doing this, or a couple of them, because I saw one of our releases, The God of High School Ch63, become updated, and shortly after that being removed from the site. here is the proof:
This is when The God of Highschool, submitted with Crepuscule, was approved. you can see it highlighte.d
This is when an already approved submission was REMOVED by someone in the mangaupdates staff. It is gone. Why? I don't know. Why would it be deleted if it's a legit new release of a chapter?
And this is when The God of Highschool REAPPEARING along with my other submissions COUPLE OF MINUTES AFTER I posted about this problem in the forums. Obviously someone know what they were doing was not in the spirit of mangaupdates.
and for extra points, this picture shows when these submissions appeared, as announce by the irc bot. They are around 6-7 hrs late from the time I submitted them. They also coincide with the time when I posted the complaint here on the forums:
This is proof that my updates were removed then re-added once i made the thread. Notice how my updates were just announced, with souten kouru, a series that just now got updated? how strange is it that my updates which was approved earlier today then removed then reuploaded got announced just now. if someone has a chatlog they most likely saw my releases updated earlier, and now suddenly re-announced because of the fact that my releases were maliciously removed. Please look into this, as this does not give equal treatment to all the scanlators out there and people on your staff has been tampering with the releases so that they pay back some personal grudge and/or give unfair advantages to whichever group they belong to outside of mangaupdates. Mangaupdates is suppose to be neutral I believe.
Thank you so much for your attention in this matter.
