Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(241 posts, 6031 views) Posted: 13d 20h, 3m ago by PROzess in News
That would be the best course of action.
But that would require two things:
1) The admins of MU are fine with handing over the database and source code.
2) Someone is willing to take lead of the other site.

I can't comment on 1), but I know that the leecher are a ...

Somebody is bound to complain about how his project isn't being accepted then.
There are no compromises in the matter.
Either keep it as it is now or kick off all novels.
The former will please novel readers and piss off manga readers while the latter will plea ...

I only judge manwha and manhua as complementary, since it's the same medium.
If novels were to be counted it, the line would be too vague and any kind of literature piece from Asia would have to be accepted. Total chaos.
Each medium its own site or it' ...

Starbucks doesn't suddenly start selling pizza, either, just because they have a lot of customers.
This site is/was meant for manga and all these novel release distort the statistic.
For someone, who seeks genuine data about manga, this site has already gotte ...

That's only counting the series entries.
But if you take the actual release count into account, novels (or rather web novels) will have a far higher percentage.
And their release frequencies is what distorts the stats and clocks up the release page. ...

Quote from nakie08
Yes, obviously. Which is why people are pushing for a filter.


The filter merely removes them from the release page, but the stats still get distorted. ...

Quote from dasnik
Did you know that the Novel community is flourishing BECAUSE OF MU!.


Wrong.
It's because someone figured out how easy it is to copy/paste webnovels into google translate and call it a fan translation.

The community "killed" ...

How can you say it's not harmful when 90% of a MANGA site consists of novels instead??
Seriously, all these stupid web novels flood the release page every day and all stats are getting distorted because of it. You can no longer rely on them for manga inf ...

So you are implying that everyone that learns a language is bound to have no life!? gg
I started with learning from a textbook at night, you know. Just allocate a bit of your free time to studying every day and it'll work out.
I'm sick of retarded excuses like ...

Quote from QueenVIP
Limiting themselves will only slow lead to forcible ruin.

That's just your opinion, man.
I rather see the ruin in expanding too much.
It's a wiser choice to stick to the original motive and perfect it, instead of superficially try to cover eve ...

Why should the admin have the responsibility to create a sister site?
This site was made for MANGA and it clearly derailed from its original purpose (for the better or worse depending on the person). They are simply going back to the roots.
If you want a sister site, ...

Quote from AquarianDemocrat
you might still be curious how it ends.


For that reason I learned Japanese.

Each his own, I know, but I'm the type that stays away from spoilers or summaries and want to enjoy the full piece in all its glory.

I'm just disappointed that the so-called "fans" throw away their dignity and read that garbage, because they're too impatient to wait for a proper release.

Seriously, why do we still need literature anyway? All these web novel releases have ...

The new trend is to let someone, who's good at English, fix up the garbage from the MT, so that it becomes readable.
The "translation" is still as inaccurate as ever, but no one can tell, since it reads normally. gg. ...

I'm not against poor quality.
But what machine translators produce is beyond the level of quality. It cannot be called a language anymore. And certainly does not count as a "fan translation". ...

While I admit that some manga certainly do sound awkward, that is merely the lacking skill of the translator.
Web novels however are not translated by fans, but rather by soulless machines.
And since this site is for fan translation.... see my point? ...

(241 posts, 6031 views) Posted: 15d 20h, 6m ago by PROzess in News
But that arises the question, can machine translation garbage really count as "fan translation" and should it thus be allowed here?
I mean, other languages aren't allowed either, just English. And some extreme cases of web novels claim to " ...

For that reason, all novels should just be removed indiscriminately. ...

Manhua and Manwha are the same medium as manga. A novel is something different entirely.
Sure, 9 years ago hardly a soul bothered for novels, so there was no need to make a distinction, but these days, web novels practically FLOOD the release page. It' ...

Quote from cclark777
since removing all LN from the website will cause some works to be lost forever.....


Huh? What?
First off, why should we care? This is a site for MANGA.
Second off, why would it be lost? This site is an INFORMATION site. They aren't go ...

Just because it's a major site doesn't make it official.
Pixiv is pretty big itself, too, so when you argue that syosetsu should be allowed, then pixiv should be, too, and then we're back at square one.
A line has to be drawn. And if that means to sacr ...
