New Poll - Mangaka Assistant
(17 posts, 1896 views) Posted: 432d 17h, 58m ago by Naeko in News
The "gaining experience as an artist" really should be combined with the getting paid item. That's because if you get paid, you will be gaining experience as an artist. The essence of making polls is to not have various poll answers cannibalize the ...
Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request
(52 posts, 8191 views) Posted: 634d 11h, 17m ago by Naeko in News
There is one other publicly editable manga database and that is the Mugimugi Doujinshi Database. While it has doujinshi in its URL, this database name is actually "The Doujinshi & Manga Lexicon". It accepts not just doujinshi, but also manga tanko ...
Why are cover images disabled for some series? (SnK, NnT, ... )

Quote from D_P
Well, how come Wikipedia doesn't recieve tons of DMCA?


Because suing wikipedia would result in a huge backlash of highly negative publicity.

In a slightly related side matter, instead of attacking wikipedia with DMCA or lawsuits, what some ...
Why are cover images disabled for some series? (SnK, NnT, ... )
(27 posts, 5787 views) Posted: 637d 11h, 56m ago by Naeko in Suggestions & Bugs
It's fair use only if you assert your rights. If you do not contest their action in court, then you legally accept their jurisdiction on said intellectual property. The other problem is the outdated "About Us" description page for mangaupdates.com. Th ...
Group Website Listing Fix

I think the best solution would be creating a scanlation group search engine.

Search engines are not responsible for illegal content they index.


It doesn't matter because they will still threaten a lawsuit against you. They know they will lose in an actual cou ...
Cures for when you're sick

Bland food along with rest in a warm environment when sick with a cold or flu seems to result in fastest recovery. ...
Id - still ongoing?
(9 posts, 6731 views) Posted: 1125d 12h, 41m ago by Naeko in Id
The authoring team was simultaneously working on other projects besides ID. As more projects were worked on, you saw the average artistic detail in Id decline. Most likely some new project is where the team is spending their time. ...
a manga with a slave girl
(3 posts, 1649 views) Posted: 1151d 11h, 50m ago by Naeko in I'm Looking For...
At first, I thought it was an easy answer as it seemed to be along the plotline of the classic story of 1001 Arabian Nights. But there was no 1001 Arabian Nights manga by that name so perhaps deep searching for similar names such as Sheherazade may be need ...
April Fools' Day Warning
(46 posts, 7109 views) Posted: 1580d 11h, 35m ago by Naeko in News
It would be curious to see what kind penalty this site could do that has any real effect. Delisting a group has little effect because most people use the aggregator read sites already and those sites are taking over many of mangaupdates' most important func ...
New vampire romance series??

Kittycat101,

Have you tried clicking on the "Releases" item on the right side menu? You can then quickly glance through the names and number of chapters released. Since it was a recent release, your number of looks is reduced by quite a lot.

Site Manga Poll Suggestions
(2215 posts, 586691 views) Posted: 1586d 12h, 36m ago by Naeko in Manga General
How about a variation of your poll question that is less affected by the type of users visiting this manga site to look for recent scanlations:

Do you think it is wrong to engage in scanlation for profit or is this just just an archaic moral stance that is no longer applicable ...
Does no one else appreciate the irony comparing the RIAA/DRM/MPAA strong arming of I.P. and these stupid watermarkings?
(10 posts, 1402 views) Posted: 1616d 11h, 48m ago by Naeko in Manga General
Comparing scanlation groups to being the RIAA or MPAA is nonsense.

Scanlation groups are not like the MPAA or RIAA who don't even provide anything for free whereas scanlation groups do the opposite and provide free pirated material with their ow ...
DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement - Beelzebub & Bakuman
(180 posts, 19554 views) Posted: 1624d 17h, 39m ago by Naeko in News
Years ago, people posted "don't care" responses just like yours (or lol put on your tinfoil hat) when people warned each time issues came up where fans were urged to get involved such as DMCA, ACTA, PROTECT, etcetera. Sure, some thin ...
New Poll - Scanlation Watermarks
(113 posts, 11648 views) Posted: 1628d 4h, 59m ago by Naeko in News
The leechers make that false accusation because they otherwise have little else to say that has any heft to it. So they just lash out with false accusations of this or that. Some of these leechers are the cliche "Fans From Hell" types. No question abou ...
New Poll - Scanlation Watermarks
(113 posts, 11648 views) Posted: 1628d 5h, 2m ago by Naeko in News
It's more than that. You forgot that it forces the scanlators into being accomplices in the reader sites' scheme of piracy for profit. The scanlators do not want any part of a profit scheme. When lawsuits are filed, the chinese run reader sites will rem ...

The only groups i know that do huge watermarks is A-team but they release the unwatermark version later so i dont mind. i know a lot people that whine about A-team but i dont want to discuss it just saying beforehand. Japanazai does this to c ...
Site Poll - Chat Box 169 - Scanlation Watermarks
(60 posts, 8347 views) Posted: 1629d 9h, 54m ago by Naeko in Chatter Box
Part of the problem is that a relatively small group of fans are highly vocal on multiple forums against watermarks. The manga is still understandable and in most cases, a no-watermark version is released later. So, since the scanlators do release unwatermarke ...
Why Manga Publishing Is Dying (And How It Could Get Better)
(53 posts, 7140 views) Posted: 1646d 0h, 15m ago by Naeko in News
The problem with manga is that the market for READING material is small since many of today's youth think that reading sucks (who wants to read?). Thus, the market is essentially the non-casual dedicated manga fan. Unfortunately, such a customer is dri ...
Lamia Vs Irlina
(30 posts, 12435 views) Posted: 1664d 9h, 28m ago by Naeko in Id
Lamia precedes Irlina by a good amount of time. If Irlina supplants Lamia, it would be a valid case of NTR.

She has the greatest amount of bonding with ID and much of his fighting ability is based upon her presence. In fact, ALL of the highest end defenses and attac ...
New Poll - 18+ Warnings
(23 posts, 1949 views) Posted: 1742d 11h, 22m ago by Naeko in News
>People listen to these warnings? Hell, I was surfing porn at age 10.

And you hit the nail on the head. That problem of porn being available means it will be illegally accessed by minors. The republicans in past three republican presidential campaigns have accuse ...
Aggregators, Scanlators, and MU
(80 posts, 5590 views) Posted: 1755d 2h, 51m ago by Naeko in News
Rather than having the aggregators profit from the stuff they copy without having done any real work, why not try to j-Comi.jp host out of print manga scanlated manga titles? It is a site created by Ken Akamatsu in partnership with Shuiesha and Kodansha to prov ...
One Manga Closing
(111 posts, 8606 views) Posted: 2184d 10h, 32m ago by Naeko in News
You won't be able to depend on advanced/secret sites as they will go down because of snitches. Anime News Network in more than one past staff article recommended that people report sites that provide access to copyrighted material. ...
