well i wasn't exactly sure whether to approve those releases or not <_< but inno if it's our role to pass judgment on whether it's aight to steal or not since all manga is done with some level of stealing someone else's intelectual property (not sure if i said that right) well *leaves it all to manick* and since mangascreener hasn't said anything to us on the subject... and yeah since we do make it a point to listen to the groups scanlating the manga in the matters of not adding download links, giving info on where to find the group (in the instances of SageStorm and null), and also if you don't want us to announce your releases we can also do that. well i hope i didn;t step out of line there as a representitive of manga-updates. any of the admins or owners of bu or mu are welcome to correct me.
the translations done by stephen for mangascreener. http://www.mangascreener.com/stephen/

I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.
If the translations are really Stephen's work, I'd be fine with removing them. I'm just a little confused since he specifically does not want his One Piece translations to be used for scanlations, but doesn't mention anything for H2. Licensed vs. unlicensed, maybe?
Unless we're sure, we allow the posting of any release, until it comes to our attention that it is potentially stolen. At this point we will try to contact the person who translated it, and ask them if it is in fact stolen (or someone close to the translator). If it is, we will remove it, unless the translator doesn't care.
In this particular case, I just heard about it right now, so I'm not entirely too sure what's going on. I'll have to find out.
Also since h2 isn't licensed, and the stephen guy says to contact him to ask to scanlate using unlicensed translations... we're going to leave them up for now until we can get ahold of the guy.[/edit]
