This series is horrible, it has to many of the "I ...
|Why do you scanlate?
(21 posts, 1268 views) Posted: 84d 6h, 54m ago by GGpX in Manga General
I started scanlating in November 2005, so 10 & a half years ago. At first it was to give back to the community like a lot of people, but the more time I spent in the world of scanlations, the less and less it became about giving back to the community. The vast, vas ...

|New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4233 views) Posted: 221d 11h, 58m ago by GGpX in News
It's not better than no release at all because if the scanlation is noticeably bad, then it's distracting. There are plenty of series I've skipped out on reading because the groups doing them were (or still are) terrible. ...

|Why is Crunchyroll a scanlator group?
(47 posts, 8459 views) Posted: 811d 15h, 16m ago by GGpX in Suggestions & Bugs
Quote from Chaoskitty
Threads like this make me want to quit scanlations. We don't scan so you little cheap-asses don't have to buy things. We scan so we can share new series so you can go buy other series and items from the mangakas.

I've bought my fair share (Probably over 600 now) of books over the years, but the best way is to have a contact in Japan buy the books for you & ship them. Save for that, I use:

There's nothing illegal with saying you translated things freely on your free time.
The illegal part would be mentioning that those translations were used for the distribution of copyrighted material in foreign languages. ...
