alot more so I'd say. I think the site was kinda abandoned a while ago
My first post in awhile.
Forget MS paulbee. It died a long time a ago. I am sure you remember I used to be a fairly frequent member. But I left when prttey much everyone else left, (Freakshow, Handbanna, Asce, etc. could go on forever really.)
Your better off joining the forums at onemanga. Their community is far bigger than at MS.

Since all this time, I have had more fun at Mangashare, and I am just Totally Disappointed and Heartached by the current freefall of this site. For some reason, I don't want to give up on MS so easily and I want it to continue.
There is a chance that MS can Make it if some simple measures were taken. Currently I am having a really difficult time understanding why the Admins just won't protect this site. I think I will wait and see for a little longer, perhaps for another week or two.
This is really just too pathetic and saddening.
Funny thing really, I joined this forum particularly because the active member count here was so small, it just seemed more fun to have a small group of people who know each other well, as supposed to a giant group like Onemanga. Its so big you didn't even notice the paulbee was already a part of it.

I am with you Aggeroff, I don't think I care too much for a MEGA-Site. I have been along time member at OM, but I don't use them very much.

I have made up my mind,without a doubt I am staying with Mangashare and I'm not going anywhere else.
Just Make Mine MangaShare
Well, I particularly liked how clean the site was (ads? sheesh).
Also, there have been numerous quality posts/posters here which is what I value over popularity.
Yeah...now you guys have to settle for noobs like me...
wow!!!!! not one single spam topic on the new posts section!!!!
I can't honestly remember the last time this has happened
Massive thanks to PaulBee for pushing so hard for capcha among other things.
^Actually if you're up at the weirdest of times, (which sadly I am), you'll notice they seem to have patterns of times when they'll spam. Like Wednesday before new releases, Saturday morning and sometimes afternoons(I think since rarely that many people on at that time posters, or mods, admins), Sometimes Fridays, and sometimes Monday's. So there seems to be a slim days when you sometimes don't get any spamming.
Is there any way to block users without even 1 viable semi-recognizable word in their name? Even including many possible languages unknown words, or wrong spelling? Just looking at the currently active users, can usually tell which will be spamming later or already have from that alone. Pretty much any1 who picks a name no matter the uniqueness they might want to convey would 99.99% choose something with the smallest of recognizable words like art or Mr, ( except ironically a couple of the Global mods).
