Holy crap, people are being so rude here (and dumb).
I'd rather not have any links anymore if that means MU won't go down. Thanks guys for your great work as always. I've been using this website for 9 years now haha.

Someone suggested if u can post link without directlink it would help to go faster to groups homesites is it possible ?

Quote from Lilanar
So true. It's really fishy. And I don't know why only one other site comes to my mind that no one has been able or really tried to stop it even when they're hosting popular copyrighted/licensed series.

The problem here is the "enabling" part of the agreement. So it still is possible but reeeealllllly suspicious.

What's done is done. Either this decision will be reversed or a new manga database site will come up soon.

Here are the stats for visits to the site of one of my groups (the smallest one).

This means pretty much the death of most scanlator web sites (and of MU as well). Scanlators will be working for Mangafox, Mangareader etc even more than in the past. It's a huge win for online readers. Do I want to continue scanlating in this environment? I'm not sure anymore.

Completed translations list
Dropped translations (all for good reason)

Maybe you could make a twitter and add it to your MU page and link your site in your profile information? Better than nothing. This is worrying no

Its reason for existing has not disappeared. We tell our readers there are alternative ways to obtain our scanlations other than aggregators, but their ignorance and/or laziness could be beginning of the end, not MU's fault.
