I'll keep an eye open for it while approving, no need for duplicates. It's simply someone renaming his releases, maybe it is blocked to release a chapter of the same number.

When I add it I always get the error report, I directly add it after it is out, so I don't know how that person does it. I lose a lot of time with adding the credits and copy paste the links.
I don't have problems if someone else put it up, but lately someone is putting up a lot of links without a link of the scanlation group. Some groups allow it (I only know two),
but others don't and put it in there scanlators policy.
I can't accept that there is someone adding releases for only personal gain, I also did this in the past and was banned for, now I follow the rules of mangashare by adding the original links of the scanlators.
I would appriciate it, if everyone follows the same rules.
Also, it would be welcome if there is a direct message if something is already added, it take sometimes time to copy paste all the links, certainly 'I eat manga' has a lot of links and it takes some time, and easy share hides there mediafire link far away in the forums -_-.
Also , it happens that there is a post done, with broken links, no links, links with a limited access( only operated in a couple country's), or links retreaded by the scanlator( this later one is solved with the v2).

OK, I don't want to create a new thread, so I'll write here. Kinda related:
1. I used to be able to edit links and info in the releases made by my team (helz0ne) - can I get this power back?
I mean links tend to expire, sometimes other people upload my chapters adding their own links instead, sometimes I make a small change in the chapter (correcting a typo, correcting credits, etc - no real reason to make it v2, especially not if it's like 15-20mins after the original release).
2. I noticed some "fake" releases of Veritas:
About 30 chapters updated on 09-26-2010, labeled as "Unknown" group - they are all copied helz0nes releases. Please take them down.
Similar thing with Veritas 77 updated on 07-14-2010 - labeled as "Manga Eden", which is an online reader, not a group. Or course it also links to the helz0ne's release.
And finally http://www.mangashare.com/dl/Veritas_48/12733 and http://www.mangashare.com/dl/Veritas_48/12489 which are copies of the same release, a release which more of a hate scanlation that and actual thing. Some Spanish group released this one chapter with a ridiculous English translation because they didn't like the fact that a helz0ne member (at that time) released Spanish scanlations of Veritas even before helz0ne released English version. The Spanish group couldn't compete with that so they decided to make this hate release xP
Well.. it was nearly 2yrs ago and since MH no longer hosts releases, you can't get that chapter anymore.
I think you should release it as well.
And while I'm at it... can I get someone to update the website for helz0ne in the MS tracker?
Please change it to www.helz0ne.com

I will take of it, and you can only edit the release you personally add to the tracker... So even if its by helzone unless you put it on the tracker you can't edit it...
@gradonil: in the meantime, do wat i do. create accounts on hotfile, megaupload, filesonic, depositfiles, then organize ur releases into folders specific to each manga. have up to ten releases per folder, if a file ever to be deleted due to copyright policy, u could just reupload into the same folder link which'll stay valid on the tracker. this way not only can u keep track of ur releases better but u would have multiple backups on the tracker. use the various plugins and download managers
Nah, too much of a bother xP@gradonil: in the meantime, do wat i do. create accounts on hotfile, megaupload, filesonic, depositfiles, then organize ur releases into folders specific to each manga. have up to ten releases per folder, if a file ever to be deleted due to copyright policy, u could just reupload into the same folder link which'll stay valid on the tracker. this way not only can u keep track of ur releases better but u would have multiple backups on the tracker. use the various plugins and download managers
There are some who would do that for money.
And to chomio: like I said above, stop adding "0" before the chapter number. If you see "The same release has already been submitted by someone else........" that mean the same chapter has already been submitted, even in the same language.
