Scanlators, take heed. Most people dislike it when you do this!

If it brings more exposure to the series, then that's good at the very least. Might help publishers see if a series is worth licensing or not.
I also understand that people have personal lives and might not have as much free time as they'd like, and it's not like I'm paying for any of these releases, so I don't feel like I have a right to complain about how they're spending their time.

Though it would be nice in these situations to get a small info about about it. If you only intend to do it for exposure, out it in your translators notes or something.
I have this one manga I've been waiting for over a year now (I Can See That She's Especially Cute) and that's an absolute oddball of happening... Seemed to have been dropped immediately, status stills seems to be 1 volume and ongoing (weird after a long time), the mangaupdate entry is barely linked anywhere and the name is different in various places too...
So yeah... Imo the worst thing about stuff like this (honestly like the poll last time) is the uncertainty. Do you know what's gonna happen when chapters are skipped? Or people stop after 1 chapter? Or when there are unexplained sudded breaks?

If they translate one chapter and stop for more than 3-4 months, imo, it's fair game, if someone comes and starts translating it. If the group complains, I'd say it's their own fault.
So in my eyes, it's alright to translate one chapter and do nothing afterwards.

Don't do it....
Don't do it with any new series until y'all go back and finish up the multitudes of neglected or forgotten & sad mangas that get little to no attention that you started back in 2010...
Sure, new manga is exciting but if you have leftovers on your plate,it's time to clear them up!
Every new Chapter you fix (even if it's just a prologue or intro) takes time away from the series that you already have in the works.
Refuse any new requests to finish abandoned projects too. Your fans will understand.
If you have time, update your scan group manga ads. Make them shorter... it's less to load.

If it's just a chapter, to give people a taste of what the manga is like, to see if there is interest among readers and/or to any scanlators get interested in taking it on...
I guess I can kinda respect that, but that doesn't mean I like it.

Because I can find other works from the same author or artist and read.
