New Poll - Immortality
(18 posts, 1573 views) Posted: 185d 22h, 50m ago by licorice in News
Definitely a curse. I imagine immortality would be lonely and that's no way to live. ...

Currency rates change all the time so it's best to leave it in its original form. ...
Village Idiot Scanlations is recruiting!
(42 posts, 8256 views) Posted: 456d 22h, 55m ago by licorice in Recruitment
We've gotten quite a few typesetter applicants, thank you! We would love more experienced cleaners and some translators that are interested in picking up mature-themed works as well (1-4 volumes)! ...
New Poll - Least Favorite Genre
(33 posts, 3627 views) Posted: 461d 3h, 50m ago by licorice in News
I voted harem, which is often involved with "school life" which I try to avoid. There is always an exception or two (for school life), but not for harem. Over it. ...

Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 2412 views) Posted: 470d 20h, 42m ago by licorice in Manga General
A few reasons:

1) It's FUN.
2) The overall community is wonderful.
3) I've invested a lot of time (and money) in something that I love and I have no regrets.

For me, it's never been about giving back to the community. I scanlate for myself and I conti ...
New Poll - Wrong Genre
(20 posts, 2613 views) Posted: 470d 22h, 30m ago by licorice in News
Well, I guess I'm in the minority. >Only read it if it other people say it's good. "Other people" meaning friends whose tastes are similar to my own, not random anons. Usually I'd skip it entirely, BUT because they're a favorite ...

New Poll - Changing Tastes
(30 posts, 2843 views) Posted: 486d 17h, 36m ago by licorice in News
I would say my tastes not only did a 180, but they're much narrower. Started reading shoujo and now I rarely, rarely read it. Long-running series that have kept my interest aside, I avoid high school settings like the plague. I also really enjoy gore and horror a ...
New Poll - Reread a Series
(17 posts, 1977 views) Posted: 541d 20h, 22m ago by licorice in News
Once and I don't have that many favorites. Those few are also relatively short (less than 7 volumes) so... ...

It shows who really cares and who really doesn't. ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 5727 views) Posted: 639d 22h, 27m ago by licorice in News
The amount of non-scanlators responding to the poll shows in its results. Poor quality work is NOT better than no release at all. Shoddy work means distractions everywhere and the inability to enjoy what you're reading. ...
New Poll - Encouraging More Research
(16 posts, 2066 views) Posted: 675d 14h, 59m ago by licorice in News
Definitely historical events! ...
New Poll - Best Josei

Quote from calstine
Well, my vote goes to 07-Ghost, hands down. I've never even read any of the others, though 7 Seeds, Sakamichi no Apollon and Bokura no Kiseki have been on my 'to read' list for a while now. Generally I prefer Comic Zero ...
New Poll - Best Seinen
(30 posts, 4011 views) Posted: 726d 16h, 29m ago by licorice in News
Ugh this list is awful. Boring, mundane, same old same old action or fantasy. I liked Punpun a lot so that's what I voted for. ...
New Poll - Best Shounen (besides One Piece)
(48 posts, 5230 views) Posted: 734d 3h, 40m ago by licorice in News
