First and foremost, I would like to make it clear that this is not an elitist club. Our goal is to come up a list of highly recommended quality shows that are exemplary either within genre or universally. However, everyone has different standards when it comes to this, so I have made up a short list of basic requirements with the goal of ensuring maximum participation from our members.

I guess on Ping Pong things are a bit different: the manga was nominated just a while ago and I think it did not get enough votes (it was back to noms? I can't remember)

So all mixed up I suppose people wanted to watch the anime as they could not read the manga. Personally, I'm sad I missed it, but at the moment I have a mission that I can't hold and can't watch anything for the club

The newest show on the relations list is Uchouten Kazoku. Please.

I'm on ep 10 of Ping Pong now and... it is good, but I don't think it's good enough to be called a masterpiece. I am amazed by the number of "Yes" it has. Does someone remember the thing lady said not that much time ago about "gotta pass a while before nominating an anime"? Exactly. The hype is real.

Daisuki there are no changes to voting procedure, or did you fail to see the voting results to the You decide. And in a simple majority anything over 50% is the valid majority...

Daisuki-chan | 07-27-14, 5:19 PM
So what are the rules for ongoing manga? The first ten or more volumes must be available and scanlated in English? And will the club FAQ be updated to reflect the new rules for manga?

Can there please be a response on the "simple majority of 51% for rule changes" issue? Please use >50% (what a "simple majority" tends to mean) instead, as votes of 26-25 (for odd vote counts) and 52-50 (for even vote counts) are where you start to get actual majorities that are also under 51%. 51% is such an odd number to pick in the first place, and pairing that with "simple majority" just makes me think that the intention is in fact a simple majority (with an incorrect numerical description of it) rather than the 51%. If 51% is truly the ideal I have to wonder why, but at least please don't describe it as a simple majority in that case, as not all simple majorities achieve 51%. If you change the number please don't change it to 50.1% or similar (>50% instead is an accurate description), because this just shifts the problem instead of removing it. It shouldn't be the case that this rule needs to be changed whenever the club's membership count changes significantly.

52 people is good enough.

ladyxzeus | 07-27-14, 1:16 PM
Barely any people voted on the club's changes, how reliable is that result?

Welcome One Piece my friendo. I guess people have a new target for challenges now, that is, if enough people even read manga.
