About a month ago, I was alerted to the dealings of one of our release mods, matias067 (you can read this or this). As far as we can see, his problem is that he is not honoring the requests of scanlators to not upload their releases to online manga readers (whether that be a delay in _ number of days or not uploading at all).

Many of you are wondering what we are doing about it, and we have talked to him and requested that he honor the policies of scanlators. He has said he will do this (in his words "I'll take note of it."). If he breaks these policies, we will release him from his MangaUpdates duties (in effect "kick him out").

However, we need your help in policing his actions. It is up to you to keep track of his actions and report to us any wrongdoings. On first offense, we do ask that you talk to him and tell him your policies (in case he hasn't seen them), but repeated offenses should be reported to me, and then we will deal with him.

PS: Sorry for the delay (could've done it 3 weeks ago) in announcing this, but to be honest, I kinda forgot. I didn't remember until I read this this morning.

Very sad that yet another Scanlator is calling it quits due to the greed of others. I'm kind of surprised that matias067 has only been warned for his actions, but I understand that MU is short of staff and need to hang on to those they have. I hope he stops this crap before any more scanlators are lost.

What's wrong with axing him on the spot? Are you guys really that short on staff?

I think it's stupid for a group to close because site like manga fox do money out of their work.

I do understand that they don't want other making money with the work they do and i agree with them completely but that's nothing unusual nowaday with internet many sites make money from other work it's wrong but nothing you can do about it stopping doing something you like because of that is stupid.

I'm just being curious here, but has anyone been made a release mod since Manick mentioned he needed more people?

I too don't see why he couldn't be let go of immediately, especially after he responded with little remorse. It's pretty hard to be one of the top, if not the top uploader for that big of a site and not know what policies he had to govern his actions by.

It does seem like a pretty huge overreaction. But then again, scanlators are free to quit whenever they want to since they do it because they want to in the first place. Well, I never liked Glass Mask so Shi-ki's actions don't bother me anyway ^_^

But, if anything, at least simply to stop other overreacting scanlators from refusing to update their releases on MU altogether (I did notice some such threatening undertones about this site "losing its credibility"), imo you should just block this user.

I don't think so. I applied and I'm wondering when he will also. :/

If they would have just said they was tired of doing scanlation or wanted to focus more on rl or any other reason like that then it would have been fine.
Like you said they can close whenever they want but closing because of others is simply stupid.

Nah, he's living the high life of a retired scanlator right now, he probably won't go back. xD

I find it very rude that you even asked him to do such a thing.
Him being MangaUpdates moderator has absolutely nothing to do with his own personal agenda on scanlators policies.

Since this group goes so far as to make troll releases (like they did with "evergreen" chapters 7-9), I'd say "good riddance". If they don't like their work being spread out, they shouldn't upload it onto the Internet in the first place.
