Plus one for new manga suggestions. This will:
-give people a way to recommend / vote on new manga to support here on CR
-organize everyone's discussions of their favorite mangas
-give you statistics on what mangas are creating the most discussion
-give everyone a way to create a shortlist of their favorite manga through favorites
- give everyone the ability to keep up with things related to their favorites through thread subscriptions.

Add in a sticky in each manga thread which updates for new releases, and everyone subscribed to that manga's thread will automatically receive notification when something new comes out (although you probably want to find a way to allow them to be notified only when that post is updated so they don't get a ton of emails from their subscription. That'd be my preferred model.)

Just wanted to put that out there. GJ on bringing this entire entertainment genre over here!

Can you clarify by what you mean by "a thread for each manga." Do you mean a separate forum for each manga, or a comments page for each manga? Something else? We do already have a way for users to add individual threads in the main Manga forum.

CR's policy is to give Premium Members the privilege of requesting new content--be it anime series, movies, dramas or, now, manga. This is done via the What series/movie/drama/manga would you like to see on CR forum thread in the CR Premium Members group.

Just a note that I'm not sure if it's just a matter of terminology--and maybe what you mean by threads isn't what I mean by threads, but for the most part creating threads within forums is what CR relies on its users to do. So, users can (and have) created threads within the main Manga forum to discuss the CR Manga titles they are interested in, and if something is missing that you want to have a discussion thread about, you can start one there (if no one else has already done so).

Some of what you are talking about doesn't seem to be actual forum thread stuff though--but I know others have suggested similar functionality in providing something like a queue for manga, and better info about when new chapters are released and such, so I'm sure these will be considered as CR grows its manga offerings to make it easier for folks to use and enjoy.
