It seems like some people are still confused about how Novel Updates works, and I figured it'll be best to finally make a thread dedicated to how Novel Updates works since I'm still getting questions about it. It's targeted at new translators that want to get their releases auto approved by Novel Updates. Novel Updates is automated when it comes to grabbing and approving most releases. Novel Updates visits hundreds of RSS feeds from the translators' websites every five minutes, but it takes a few minutes to download and process the data. As long as you set your categories and your post title numbering is correct, your releases will be auto approved. If your releases aren't auto approved for whatever reason, they will go into a queue where the moderators will either reject or approve them. Update: NU is currently also grabbing releases via email. I'm a new group, how do I add my group? Add your group - Just fill in your group name and URL. Add the series - Please make sure to fill in as much information as possible. Add the releases - You should at least add the first release to get my attention as all new series needs to get tagged by me before they are auto approved by Novel Updates. How do I make sure my releases will get auto approved? Please tag your posts correctly. For example, let's say you are translating "Peerless Martial God". You should create a category "Peerless Martial God" or "PMG" for your releases. Alternatively, you can also add "PMG" or "Peerless Martial God" to the title of your posts. Example: "PMG Chapter 1", "PMG V1C1", "PMG c1", "Peerless Martial God Volume 1 Chapter 1", "Peerless Martial God Chapter 1 Part 1", etc.. You can either put your releases in a category or add it to your title. You are also free to do both. Just make sure you do at least one of them. Personally, I would prefer if you do both. Remember that Novel Updates is just a bot so please don't do anything fancy with naming your titles. If you want examples on how to name your post titles and categories, please refer to http://www.wuxiaworld.com/ or https://www.blobtranslations.com/ for examples. I submitted a new novel, why isn't it showing? You have to submit a release before it shows up. You can submit a release via this link: https://www.novelupdates.com/add-release/ My releases aren't getting auto approved! The most common reason your releases aren't getting auto approved is because I forgot to tag your novel or you don't have a category set for your releases. Start a conversation with me (@Tony) and I'll help you fix this problem.
