t10856.122018-06-28New VN Recc site launched@11 I'm pretty sure it's not a server side action as it certainly isn't adding an email class to it. It's either an ISP or browser issue. Either way

t2108.23542018-05-28Candidates for deletion#2353 ah ok, my mistake then. I got confused due to Yorhel's comment: "VNDB does not track in-progress VNs from publishers without any past releases."
