They do have data on what we read, and they can track what sells and what doesn’t via sales numbers.
Big brother watching us.
More like Santa deciding what new titles to put in our stocking, so be good for goodness' sake!
It looks like searching "Isekai Mahou" will now get you to the correct series, and that manga releases are scheduled for another week. I'm not sure how much I had to do with that second one, but thanks J-Novel for the super speedy response.
@hopebestman You can set those options at both the Thread and Category level.
Watching a thread gives Notifications and puts it in Unread. Watching a Category puts anything in the category in unread, unless it is ignored.
Ignoring a thread or Category also removes them from Recent.
What I am hoping for is an option to have new threads in a category be marked as unread, but have everything else not clog up the "inbox".
@hiroto Well when a company makes more money than god they can't be bothered to waste it paying people to make a correction to their existing products. They need that money so they can try and take over other fields of business until they control all of the money.

any news on that?
No news as of right now, other then it is still happening, no ETA on when it will be done but thank you for taking the time give some feedback with your experiences with the site!
So sad... so so sad.
@yoshken Not quite as much as not having a payment processor available. I remember having to process "phone orders" by writing out everything and making a deposit at the bank, with no way of knowing if the transaction would be accepted until two weeks later.
I too would like a filter for this. Trying to find the ebook releases among all the part releases is kind of annoying, being able to filter that out would be really nice. It would help me plan my light novel spending a bit better too.
Not having this made reading parts as they come out too hard for me ages ago, so now I just read entire prepub volumes in one hit when the final part goes up as they are tagged "final" on the release calendar, so pretty easy text search on the web site to find what's next in the queue.
I'll be screwed whenever they forget that final tag, though I'll probably just drop whatever it is cause there's too much for me to read as it is.
You can report issues in the volume's topic. Here's the link: https://forums.j-novel.club/topic/2915/record-of-wortenia-war-vol-5-discussion
EDIT: I see you're not in the members/premium group. Were you reading the first/free/preview part perhaps?
No, although I don't really care is they're used, but I find them a bit too jarring. In my opinion the basic :( :) ;) ^^ are enough to express most of the meaning emojis are usually used for, and they blend better with the rest of the text.
Plus, I know it's stupid, but I have a hard time taking seriously anything which use more than 2 of them.
I am actually not seeing any issue when I read Part 3 on my phone or the website.
However it is important to note that the e-Book for V9 has already been released as such they recommend sending any errors found to support@j-Novel.club.
There seems to be no issue in the ebook, so it looks like it was resolved.
@harunachiep my bad. I kept that short after all the confusion with the postings being moved back and forward. I was mainly referring to this reply you got after you assumed as I did, it might had something to do with the email.
@myskaros said in Error Report Section for J-Novel Club Series:
@harunachiep No, that's more likely just because we're all busy and small corrections to released e-books are lower priority. We'll fix them eventually, but not sure when.
While it is understandable and no one to blame, it is one kind of reply you usually would not get from a customer service department (of course I do not see @myskaros as customer service, unless they are which I do not know). While the truth is always appreciated I see such stuff as disheartening to give further feedback/support when you actually do not have to.
Helping the service provider to make their product better for everyone is a voluntary thing to do, after all.
I’m female and just ignore the boob threads, tbh. As long as male posters treat female posters with respect, I don’t care if they also want to talk about hot anime ladies. I mean, If you think women can’t be vulgar, especially women in fandom, then you haven’t met many female fans.
As for J-Novel Heart, I’m really excited by it as one of the reasons I didn’t join J-Novel Club was because at first most of the series were very male-demographic oriented and also seemed fairly fan-servicey. I joined when Bakarina and Beast Head were licensed as they were more to my taste.
I do like male-demographic novels as well, but I prefer my fan service aimed at female tastes. I’ve enjoyed being able to try series I wouldn’t normally check out, as sometimes even if they have a lot of fan service aimed at guys, they have other things about them I like. I’m hoping some of the male readers will try the female-demographic works who wouldn’t normally try them and will find things they like too. If not, as long as they don’t complain that they’re being published, then that’s OK too.
I’d be upset if it were a separate subscription, but it’s all part of one thing which is great. I haven’t read any of the new licenses yet as I’m a bit behind on pre-pubs, but I”m really excited about reading them once I’m caught up with a few other volumes that expire before they do.
As for the demographics of the forum, I expect anime/manga/light novel forums to be more male-dominated, unless it’s genres more aimed at women, plus you also have to remember a lot of women don’t say they’re female online as they can be harassed for it. As more JN Heart books get published, there will probably be more female posters, and the more they are, the safer women and girls feel about being open about their gender online.
