    It's something I wanted to implement for awhile but it's finally here! You can now create recommendation lists that you can share with your friends.

    What's a recommendation list? It's a list which will allow you to add and rank novels based on whatever factor you decide. Here's a list I made as an example: https://www.novelupdates.com/viewlist/1/

    [​IMG]

    You can also comments on yours and the list of others. As the list owner, you are also able to delete comments. The list is yours after all so you should have full control over what goes on there.

    Recommendation Lists
    All public lists will be displayed here: https://www.novelupdates.com/recommendation-lists/ (You can access it from the sidebar and/or mobile menu).

    Public lists will also be shown under the "Lists" section from the novel page.

    Alternatively, you can also mark your list as private and it won't be shown anywhere on NU. The only way to access a private list is with a direct link.

    For your list to be shown here, your list has to be public AND it must contain at least two novels.

    How Do I Create My Own List?
    Go here: https://www.novelupdates.com/recommendation-lists/ and click on "Create List"

    Advanced Search
    You can search lists which contains the novels and/or tags you're looking for.

    New Profile and Account Settings Redesigned
    I had to separate the two because it was getting a bit cluttered.

    You can go visit my profile if you want to see it in action: https://www.novelupdates.com/user/3/Tony/

    or visit your account settings: https://www.novelupdates.com/account/

    You can also access these links by clicking on your user icon located at the top right corner.

    Dark Mode
    You no longer need an account to use dark mode. You can change your theme by clicking on your user icon located at the top right:

    ...and that's it!!! These features took me a lot longer than I expected but I'm happy I'm finally done blobmelt_thumbs

    If you run into any problems with these new features, please report it in this thread and I'll fix it as soon as I can.

    MT = ? I was going to guess no downtime but... it feels off because of the 'M'.

    I'm not sure where this is on the mobile website.
    You can bypass it by viewing the page in desktop version to change into dark mode and then change back to mobile version, but obviously that isn't optional.
