Of course I can, I think I released a wishlist on stuff that should get scanlated to be finished (no not the great titles that got lost and the new great titles that never got scanlated)
Luckily people got an attention to it...well they would if they read our scanlations but it resulted in many getting picked up...but 40% are still lost. I think that was our xmas release 2 years ago? O.o

Nah, this has only affected the buying people. Oh wait, you may be right....maybe that's the reason why people think our releases are their rights and they can demand from them....oh and mangafox earning money on the author's work instead of the author earning money on her work is fine...true the finance crises has put its huge greedy pawn on scanlations even!

it not like I am saying the economic issue doesn't affect scanlation. It does of course affect scanlation but it not enough to completely shut down groups. There are still a ton of people everywhere surfing the internet, that wont change unless population actually decreases.

It really about the number of user on internet rather than ones who have to spend more time working

It's all because of those new groups!! When their projects are snatched, it must be frustrating. Not that they own the series, but isn't there any rules in this scanlating industry!?

It's saddening to see them closing!! They did a good job in scanning nurarihyon no mago!
All the best for your studies! Leader!

Regarding project snatching, Mangacurse is doing the same to those slower releasing groups, mind you.

Uh, what? I've never been one to accept donations and I'm pretty sure if and when my “group” does close (It hasn't), it'll be because of my declining interest in manga.
