If you want to judge whether the scene is eroding or not, I think a more relevant measurement is the number of actual releases. The number of anonymous readers is of absolutely no relevance to scanlation.

I feel affected, like seriously.
I usually went to Batoto to get direct sources, not reading via this reader but getting links to go to the scanlators' pages. Before this, I felt disheartened when MU can't upload their pages anymore & with this decision, it will be tremendous lost. I don't know any other solution if I want to get to the hard-to-get scanlators' pages :c
(yup, simple Google-ing won't do much)

Depending on the timezone they're 1-2 days too soon.

Cloudflare still cached this bit of text, but not that it's useful or anything (maybe give it some time?):

I was planning to manually trawl through my follows and pull the websites for each group so I freaked out when batoto went down today.

this spreadsheet just made my life so much easier...ty!

It helps a lot too, if you didn't already know.

Unfortunately many single person translators still have their site listed as batoto.
