Screw it! Donations are not okay. If it's not shared by the Japanese and you don't want to buy it yourself in the group then you shouldn't ask for money from others to continue.

Yes, I didn't ask cuz I was that great biggrin

NO if you are a one manga group and keep it to yourself then it's fine but as soon as you share the raw with other "team members" then its' illegal. Oh and the raw has to be one you bought yourself too.

The man as in----the authors who don't the shit you are doing?

Please, stop saying that it's fine to steal other's stuff because you are standing up to them. In my house if you stand up against the man then you sure as hell should be able to take on the consequences for what will come out of it. Many scanlators seem to forget that fact...that they may end in jail if the companies start suing you for standing up to them. Excuses like: "I stood up cuz you cheat your customers/ this was a protest" doesn't hold that well in court.

Yes press, Viz, Dark Horse, Kodansha comics, SevenSea and etcetc...yes only 2-3 left. Just cuz TP dies because their leader as an idiot doesn't mean that the others run the business just like that idiot.

I agree totally.

I wish I could go back a decade thus I could kick my ass for getting into scanlation and instead just focus on getting more rich. wink

I don't mean affiliates as in they use those readers. I mean affiliates as in official backers.

Exactly. Just because something is licensed in Japan doesn't automatically license it in other countries. You have to go through the paperwork and such to license it in other countries (usually only done when a publisher is going to try to market it in that area).

Beel was probably just bought by viz and they just thought that it'd be nice to end competitions early on. In all honesty, I don't mind having ads and stuff in the manga that I read and donating on the occasion that I do have extra cash (I also read manga from the scanlators websites). I'd support viz and actually buy the manga they translate as long as its not like 8-10 dollars per volume and that they don't leave anything behind from the original texts. I remember buying one volume of Berserk and found myself reading something "softened". You can't do that. I'm a writer and I know how hard it is to set the mood using words and I'd prefer if you didn't change it. Also the art is censored which is pretty annoying because I'd prefer to just see it as it is. That's why the reason why I try to support the groups that translate the manga that I read is because I like their work better than viz or other official publishing. And in all honesty, instead of going after the people who do scanlations why don't they just help them and just make a big ol website where the readers can read from there? They can have age restriction or whatever and have like a membership and I won't mind because I'd rather have that than this big ass discussion about how to shut down NOEZ. In all honesty, if you want to be that big of a company then you need another big company. so in all regards, I'd prefer that instead of something as stupid as a protest that is usually goes into shambles and complete idiosyncrasy of a mental patient. A protest is useless unless you have a lot of people backing you up and also have the proper argument for it. RHS does what it does in order to survive and earn something. I don't blame them or other groups if they want to hold on to something like NOEZ. Humans are greedy beings; that's just how we are. I'm usually quiet but I thought I'd say something for a change.

Get your sickening racial stereotypical allegations off the net. I don't particularly care if you flame some random person other than me, but pointing fingers at whole ethnicities is disgraceful.
