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.

That's simple the most proper comparison to this retarded request.. Yellow pages instead of a centralized webgate. Goddammit, now MU will never be the same..

Could somebody tell me which groups submitted the DMCA i wanna know for whom i must buy bigger glasses because i think they are blind.
Someone suggested if u can post link without directlink it would help to go faster to groups homesites is it possible ?
and btw some sites change they country of server just to make money and they dont give a **** about groups why they dont they accuse them instead

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.

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.
