How to space romaji
(4 posts, 129 views) Posted: 2d 12h, 58m ago by cmertb in Manga General
These are my personal preferences:

"ga" is the same particle as any other, so it gets the same treatment. Not sure what you mean by "te" -- if it's the -te form of a verb then it's a part of the preceding word.

As for elongated ...
How to space romaji
(4 posts, 129 views) Posted: 2d 15h, 13m ago by cmertb in Manga General
There aren't any rules that anyone enforces, but English speakers typically prefer spacing and capitalization that's closer to English standards, i.e. spaces around all particles and all words in title capitalized except particles. Don't know what yo ...
New Poll - Dystopia vs. Utopia
(32 posts, 625 views) Posted: 3d 14h, 7m ago by cmertb in News
Quote from Mamsmilk
That's awfully pretentious of you.

If one day I wake up and find the internet where you can state an opinion clearly and openly without apologizing 10 thousand times for it in advance, and there's no teenager to show up and call yo ...
How to ask for help for translations?
(6 posts, 141 views) Posted: 3d 14h, 38m ago by cmertb in Manga General
It's pointless to just ask. If a scanlator wants to pick up a new project, they already know what's interesting out there and what they want to pick up. If they don't have the resources for a new project, then no matter how much you ask, they' ...
New Poll - Dystopia vs. Utopia
(32 posts, 625 views) Posted: 4d 10h, 55m ago by cmertb in News
Dystopia stories are great when you're gripped by teenage angst and want to think that life sucks and everyone around you is a bastard. You grow out of it eventually. Unfortunately, telling a gripping story based in a utopian society takes much talent, so suc ...
Translating J/E for commission
(15 posts, 653 views) Posted: 8d 12h, 32m ago by cmertb in Recruitment
Quote from reanseih
Why do I feel like I have to back up from you a bit? o.O

Because you're too greedy to share any food with a starving translator? ...
Translating J/E for commission
(15 posts, 653 views) Posted: 9d 5h, 3m ago by cmertb in Recruitment
Don't fall for the expensive hype.

I will translate for food and sexual favors. Maybe even accurately. Possibly quickly. ...
Writing manga reviews. Any suggestions for series?
(10 posts, 529 views) Posted: 73d 15h, 53m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Why don't you submit your reviews on this site as well? They'll be more useful here than anywhere else. ...
Where are your current favorite mangas from
(3 posts, 227 views) Posted: 79d 1h, 35m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Japan was, is, and will remain the undisputed champion in manga for the simple reason that "manga" is a Japanese term. Other countries don't make manga. ...
How to Submit a Manga to Manga Updates?
(2 posts, 182 views) Posted: 121d 10h, 29m ago by cmertb in Manga General
What exactly are you asking?

The series already exist in the database, and you just need to add the correct mangaka name to them?
or
You need to add new series to the database? ...
Manga/fun stuff in 日本語 (Japanese) - suggestions?
(6 posts, 341 views) Posted: 151d 1h, 51m ago by cmertb in I'm Looking For...
1. Read shounen or shoujo manga since they have furigana (400 kanji is insufficient otherwise, you'd spend too much time looking them up).
2. Most popular manga have raws that can be found through google. E.g. google "yotsubato manga raw" ...
Mangatraders Hacked, and How it Affects MU
(83 posts, 34541 views) Posted: 168d 8h, 15m ago by cmertb in News
There is some thread on reddit discussing the MT issue, and there are screenshots posted there that show admin access to MU and to MAL (with the assumption that admin account passwords were gained from the MT crack since some admin used the same pa ...
Watermarks in Scanlations
(70 posts, 8612 views) Posted: 193d 7h, 6m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Quote
And none of them were related to the source I got the manga from, which is even more silly.

Precisely. You got the scans from somewhere the scanlators didn't want you to get them from, and you're annoyed by watermarks on them. It appea ...
Why is Crunchyroll a scanlator group?
(46 posts, 5663 views) Posted: 203d 7h, 47m ago by cmertb in Suggestions & Bugs
I wouldn't become "distressed" if CR picked up any of my projects. On the contrary, I would gladly drop them and let them run with it. Scanlation is not about stealing business from legit publishers.

Also, while I think that since CR is technically a pub ...
Getting manga raws from ebooks
(22 posts, 950 views) Posted: 209d 2h, 52m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Hmm, so this procedure sounds like more of a pain in the ass than buying paper volumes, debinding, and scanning. I should ask experienced scanners though, just in case. But as far as I know, if your scanner has an autofeeder, you can manage this in like 30 minute ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3956 views) Posted: 219d 11h, 7m ago by cmertb in News
My concern on this topic only goes as far as to point out that the results of this poll don't reflect any useful reality. Job done, I believe. ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3956 views) Posted: 219d 17h, 29m ago by cmertb in News
So you're saying it's not the author of the poll, it's this site's classification that's being stupid. How is that better? ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3956 views) Posted: 220d 3h, 19m ago by cmertb in News
Even if you rape the dictionary definition of the term and claim that a demographic (i.e. target audience) is a genre, it still doesn't change the fact that this poll presents overlapping options as mutually exclusive. I think my post above contains a perfect analogy ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3956 views) Posted: 220d 4h, 26m ago by cmertb in News
Q: What kind of food do you eat most often?
1) Salty
2) Sweet
3) Italian
4) Green
5) Red
6) Meat
7) Processed
8) Low fat

I think the question of this poll is pretty clear, and if you don't think so, you're just being pedantic.

New Poll - Most Read Demographic

Quote from Cthylla
Pretend they correctly labeled it as genre.

Then five of the choices are not genres. It's wrong either way. ...
New Poll - Most Read Demographic
(93 posts, 3956 views) Posted: 221d 2h, 32m ago by cmertb in News
Only four of the options are actually demographics (age + gender). The rest are fetishes that can fall under various demographics, with hentai standing outside and puzzled, since it can also contain any of those fetishes. Confused choices, messy poll, invalid result. ...
Translations to English
(14 posts, 501 views) Posted: 230d 7h, 52m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Quote from momimomi
I beg to differ. Japanese insults may look tame in literal translation, but to a native they are quite as effective as English strong words because honestly it's all relative.

It's not entirely relative. Sure, you can be insulted with mild wo ...
Translations to English
(14 posts, 501 views) Posted: 231d 4h, 28m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Japanese swear words are few and tame even by English standards. If you see a lot of strong swearing in a translation from Japanese, it means the translator is taking quite a few liberties.

In general, your question has nothing to do with Japanese. Literary translat ...
Descriptions and Mangahelpers
(3 posts, 219 views) Posted: 231d 14h, 46m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Hmm, interesting question... Obviously, it's disrespectful to your work to just replace it with someone else's summary, even though there was nothing wrong with yours. I guess this is a problem with the current MU system, that even though it allows any ...
Chinese-English translator needed for manhua
(0 posts, 168 views) Posted: 232d 5h, 26m ago by cmertb in Recruitment
Colourful Abyss is looking to restart our long stalled manhua project Collapse of the World as We Know It. Without your translations, it will be just another series that will whither away uncompleted. And you know not much manhua is being scanlated to begin with.

Pl ...
