Manga Reread FAQ
Can I promote?
Can I share a volume with a friend for my sign up week?
What are the minimum requirements to be a host for reread?
- the minimum requirement is at least one post during the two week period containing a summary of what occurs in that volume (or chapters indicated in the sign up post), and either questions or comentary as a starting point for a discussion on what occurs on that chapter, or questions - so that people have a chance to interact with you for the that period of the reread.
No really, what are the minimum requirements for participating? WHAT DO YOU WANT QEM?!
10:03:37 ‹Qem› This is what I want:
10:03:44 ‹Qem› To have lots of people participate and take turns!
10:03:52 ‹Qem› And not to stress out about what they're are doing.
Each host is likely to do things a different way - and that's ok! Some weeks may be quieter than others - and that's ok!
Each host has freedom to do things their way for their volume. :) The idea is to encourage a variety of perspectives and opportunities for everyone to interact!
I am inspired to do a meta post about something that occurs in the manga! Do I have to wait for the appropriate reread post?
Definitely not! Anything that was welcome in the community before reread is still welcome now. If you have some thing character specific, or wanted to talk about something that happens in a later post, and it doesn't quite fit in with the current reread volume posts that are active at that point in time - please feel free to start your own post to share it.
Or in short. *Qem makes grabby hands at the meta, all the meta.*
What is the policy on spoilers?
It is up to the host on whether they would like to enforce a spoiler policy in the posts that they are hosting for reread. Readers can use whatever method they find appropriate for marking spoilers. You can see information on the different methods and what the community prefers here: http://hikarunogo.dreamwidth.org/89967.
What is the code for black on black text?
Method 2:Spoiler text goes here
<span style="color:black; background:black;">Spoiler text goes here</span>
How can I make it more convinient to participate in conversations via rot13 encryption?
- I did create a rot13 page, for which there is a permanent short cut in the side bar of the chat, as this will make it easy for me to find when I am on the go with my phone, but for my desktop, I have made a discovery which makes the whole experience much more enjoyable and efficient:
- Extensions! Firefox and Chrome have extensions which make it possible to decrypt the text on the page and encrypt your messages before you post via right click.
I am using leetkey for firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/
But apparently d3coder for chrome is also quite good for rot13 https://chrome.google.com/webstore/
And there is of course, sure to be a grease monkey extension out there.
Do I have to use Viz translations?
Lol, no. You can translate your summary from the special copy you have from Japan or the French translations sitting your your shelves, or if you happened to have the English translation licenced and created for somewhere like, Singapore (also please tell me) that's fine too. I don't think the version you are using should matter to much - and I'd prefer the assumption is that we are working with different versions. This is part of the reason why I outlined the number of chapters that's being considered for each volume to make the reread consistant in that area as everyone is almost certainly likely to be working from different versions. (Furthermore, the Viz translations have been proven to differ depending on their print run.)
