ANNOUNCEMENT: rules specific to this section

    We would like to impose a "one thread per release" rule, and I think this is good to apply the same rules now in this section, as all the important direct downloads sections already have it.

    So the special rules are the following:

    - Each manga release (same author and title, regardless of the number of volumes) must have its own unique thread
    - Each new upload of a given title must be posted in the corresponding thread
    - If you fail to follow these rules, you will get an infraction
    - All the official rules still apply (especially the double posting rule)

    Exception to these rules is:

    - if the thread starter has been banned, and has no replies yet, you don't need to reply to a thread.

    Before you post a manga title, you must search if it was posted before. If yes, you must make a reply to the thread, and not make a new thread. It doesn't matter if there are separate threads with the same title, you must reply to one of them.

    This change will be effective right now, but there will be a 'training' period of 7 days without infractions given.

    One extra ruling: you don't need to reply to a thread, if the thread starter has been banned. And there are a lot of threads like that here. I won't spend any time to clean the mess.
