    Hi, thank you for this amazing website!!

    Okay, enough ass-kissing.

    Not quite the same as these two requests, but
    Request Approved - Mute series until certain number of new releases | Novel Updates Forum
    Request Approved - (x) Novel Updates | Novel Updates Forum
    1. Can we get some kind of alert or notification or some indication (highlight, bg colour, icon, etc.) when a novel in our reading list reaches a certain chapter? Maybe just some kind of icon or background colour change in our reading lists? This is very helpful for those of us who wait until a volume/arc is complete.

    2. You might also want to include some wiki feature in each novel page that lets people know which volume/arc ends at which chapter, since the posters will often skip the v## and just list the chapter # continuously. Maybe the ability to add a small note next to a chapter in the Latest Release list within the main novel page? People can then choose whether or not to see those wikis in their Display settings.
    e.g.
    Latest Release

    Date
    Group Release
    05/29/18 volarenovels c914 (v10 starts)
    05/29/18 volarenovels c913 :sushi_cool: (click to add note)

    3. In the main novel page, can we also have the current chapter we've marked as read show up somewhere in the page, without clicking the "Go to bookmarked chapter" button? Maybe next to "Latest Release"?
    e.g.
    Latest Release (v3c8)

    Date
    Group Release
    05/29/18 volarenovels c914

    4. About the new private notes/tags feature in the reading lists, you might also want to add the ability to edit those notes within the novel page itself.

    Thank you for working so hard on this site and making things much easier for the rest of us!

    if by 'word' you mean 'estimated time', then no. except for very pressing changes/fixes, i don't remember tony ever give any kind of concrete. time estimate for features he planned (for NU, at least)

    he did say he's going to do it, btw. making it accessible from novel page.

    Oh, didn't know we had to go look up the To Do list to see if anything got approved. Thought someone in charge would reply if they thought anything was good. Thanks.

    Also, please reconsider some way to let us get a notification/alert of some sort when a nobel reaches a certain chapter (suggestion #1).:notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:
