Translating Manga Fandom: The Case of Manga Scanlation
(16 posts, 363 views) Posted: 7d 5h, 1m ago by cmertb in News
Well, if we suppose that scanlation is killing commercial translation, then it would also explain why domestic manga failed to arise to any meaningful extent. If you can't profit off translation, you would be that much less interested in investing in domestic produc ...
Translating Manga Fandom: The Case of Manga Scanlation
(16 posts, 363 views) Posted: 7d 12h, 48m ago by cmertb in News
Hey Matteo. Well, I hope my objections will help you modify those hypotheses. smile

My last point isn't actually a point, it's something that troubles me a bit. Given that domestic alternatives failed to arise, we have this niche audience served by scanlators and ...
Translating Manga Fandom: The Case of Manga Scanlation
(16 posts, 363 views) Posted: 7d 13h, 56m ago by cmertb in News
This is a little underwhelming IMO. There's probably more space devoted to discussing what manga is, how it's categorized, doujins and otaku than to scanlation itself.

Some theories I find very questionable. E.g. "It is within this framework that sca ...

New Poll - Apocalypse

Quote from alicewhite3151998
Great poll!
Thought that Overpopulation and/or loss of resources would be the worse cause when things start falling apart and there not that much food, people get nasty.

Unlike e.g. a nuclear holocaust where people will be all smiles a ...
New Poll - Apocalypse
(34 posts, 1123 views) Posted: 11d 20h, 1m ago by cmertb in News
Doesn't really matter. In any sane apocalyptic scenario, any of us here will be dead in a few days at most. Do you care what you die of all that much?

As for the few people who may survive, they currently don't waste their time reading manga on the ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)

Remove novels and let the ones who like to read them run their own tracking site. Problem solved. ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(241 posts, 6027 views) Posted: 14d 14h, 31m ago by cmertb in News
It would be nice if MU would allow a clone of itself to serve as the base of a new novel tracking site. But yeah, maintaining a novel site is the responsibility of novel readers. ...

Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(241 posts, 6027 views) Posted: 15d 13h, 4m ago by cmertb in News
I would treat machine translations as troll releases and deal with them accordingly. It is very easy for most people to agree when something isn't readable. A few complaints, and the release is removed, same as it works now (I have requested a release to ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(241 posts, 6027 views) Posted: 15d 18h, 38m ago by cmertb in News
I don't see this as being relevant to the present discussion. To me, the issue is very simple -- it is about the focus of this site, which right now is somewhat half-assed.

Either the site should focus on manga and related media, as was its original intent. Or it should ...

Why not allow j-drama and live actions while they're at it? I too want the media I'm interested in in one location. I'm sure someone else will also want idol shows and even anime. ...

Quote from Draconic
Do you agree with removing novels and webnovels from MU?
- Yes
- No
- I don't care

This issue is too serious to be asked about so flippantly and with so little nuance in the options.

Here's a question about manga fan attitudes that' ...

Are they self-published amateur works? If not, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

In response to some others, let's not descend into absurdity. In a site dedicated to manga, it is perfectly acceptable to have manga related content. The original prop ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(241 posts, 6027 views) Posted: 17d 20h, 16m ago by cmertb in News
While this site is called Manga Updates, I completely agree with these proposed changes.

Those who want doujins or novels can set up Novel Updates or Doujin Updates or whatever.

Not accepting anything whose source is self-published online seems like a good id ...

Novels overtaking manga?
(2 posts, 408 views) Posted: 58d 19h, 24m ago by cmertb in Manga General
Indeed. I'm often tempted to go into LN translations just so I wouldn't have to depend on others.

Well, I think there has been a slight decrease in overall scanlation as well, if you disregard the new style legit scanlations that are now reported on MU. ...

Did mangaupdates lower the bar for "echii" this Valentines Day?
(7 posts, 476 views) Posted: 132d 3h, 46m ago by cmertb in Manga General
The term is "ecchi", not "echii". How do you introduce spelling errors while copying & pasting?

Anyway, the manga isn't ecchi anymore. ...
