This is the initial release of the second version of the data management system and its accompanying manual. The new system is significantly easier to use than the first version. The scope of the manual has also expanded greatly from the original and is the point of reference for all users and moderators.
Additional sources have been added to the website and all media types can now make use of the field. The new sources are:
Any works adapted from full novels caught in the Novel to Light Novel change (seefixed) will have to be manually corrected to the new Novel source.
Two new opposite relations, 'Contains' and 'Compilation', for linking one-shots into anthology collections and vice versa have been added to the website.
Novels and Web Novels from any accepted country of origin are not eligible to be in the database and any existing entries that have been added over time have been or will be deleted. The only allowed novel type is Light Novel.
Effect should be minimal as barely any users track Chinese or Korean web novels on this site, as much better alternatives are available. Professionally published manhua and manhwa are still allowed.
The incorrect statement on the previous manual that extra chapters (such as certain prologues, epilogues, and .5's) are not included in the total chapter count has been removed.
Effect should be minimal as they were still being included where correct.
Recommended minimum image dimensions for creating or cropping images have been changed.
