This question is 100% hypothetical, just wondering.

Let's say a group didn't want to appear on mangaupdate, or if they didn't want their releases listed. Their hypothetical reason would most likely be legal, but whatever reason was would MU honor their wish?

If your group puts something on the Internet, somebody's going to notice.

If you don't want anyone to notice, then don't put it on the Internet.

If you don't want your group name associated with the release, then release it anonymously.

Are you speaking on behalf of MU or is this your private opinion?

I get that it's hypothetical but...
I have a question, is there anything actually wrong with having your release announced? It's not like they're providing download links or providing fans with an online reader.
I mean MU is a good site for people to find new manga that are being scanlated to read and the point of scanlation is for the fans to read, so why limit the chances of having people find the manga you scanlate?
I was just curious. ._. I think they would respect it.

I am pretty sure they will respect your wish, Name-Undecided.

Years ago, someone reported and announced my translations here. It was never meant for public. It's just for fun and intended for some friends community only.

I contacted the people in charge about the problem. I think the admin called Manick removed it for me.

Then there's also one time when someone stole my text translation and use them for their group without my permission. And Manick once again solved the problem for me.

If i remember right, i think MangaScreener also have the same problem about stolen translation and Manick instantly removed the releases and ban the group.

Not everyone want so share it with public. Some just do it for fun and some just want to share it with their friends.

It's entirely hypothetical. I have no problem with listing my releases on MU. But it's good to know that something can be done if a release that isn't meant to be public finds its way here. Like you I can envision a scenario where, for example, something done for a group of friends finds its way into the wrong hands, etc etc.

We don't release scanlations that are not available to the general public.

So, something that only a few people (your friends) are supposed to see would not be allowed here.
