    I am not sure if I am the first one to post this question, but why is it that when I look for novels in Novelupdates there are novels that has tags of (completed) even though they're still ongoing. I mean why would anyone put a false tag in the novel?

    Tags do lie sometimes. Those LN without chapters should be erased too if possible.

    If you're looking under the 'Status in COO' and it shows the 'chapter number (complete)', it's probably indicating that the raws are completed but not the english translation itself.

    Soooooo not spreading rumors or anything but somebody juuuuust falsely changed some novels translated status to complete. It was done by a troll account but I am just going to leave this here.

    OP, if you made a thread, you know what the 1st thing you need to do? Give us Something! Not suddenly make a thread for this and don't even give a picture, or just a simple telling the Name of 1 Novel you are talking about.
    Some of the Discontinued or Hiatus novels got Completed, just because since no more raws from the Author, so technically, it's a complete translated. So they aren't wrong.

    Aside from OP not giving example from post, [Completed] sign also means translator complete translated the source novel, doesn't matter when author dropped or hiatus-ed the novel. If do finally emerged from being hiatus and update his or her novel, the [Completed] sign could be removed.

    Example:

    It's sad that I can't give a proof, but one of my example are Against the gods, Im really a superstar which is ongoing and still being translated, and yet in the tag it's complete but I know it isn't. Maybe after I get a proof I'll post it again.

    Just fix yourself. Literally anyone can edit. Then report the problem to the mods so they can ban whoever fucked it up.

    What do you refer as Tag? There is no Completed or On-going in the Tag list.

    This is Tags:
    IMG_20170808_152921.jpg

    This is Series Information:
    IMG_20170808_152935.jpg

    Or do you mean this:

    It's the completely translated tag, the 2nd one, there are people who changed it into yes which they shouldn't because it's not true.

    Ah, that. As my fellow staff @marine1corps has said, we do have trouble occasionally with troll account who falsely change the status. This multiplies in regards to Qidian novels recently.

    They are fixed as soon as they are spotted. However, staffs aren't perfect so we do miss them sometime. You can edit them if you see them. If you spot a persistent false changes even after you've fixed them, you can report it here:
