well crap... here I was waiting for mangatraders to come back and just now read this thread and found it isn't. Well hopefully Sakisan and Woxxy get a similar site running. Guess going to have to get an IRC client again until a new site like mangatraders is created.

And we lost a brilliant site thanks to this community and horrible peoples. Geez where should i run. Who cares about a big ass single torrent or several torrents, neither i care about 1.6TB. I was getting what i needed once in a while but now it's gone and i don't have an alternative like MT.

First Stoptazmo.com goes down.
Next The-EvilEmpire.net goes down.
And then MangaShare.com removes it's releases.

Now this happens?

MangaTraders was like the VIRTUAL HEAVEN LIBRARY of manga databases to download any manga that has ever been scanlated in the history of scanlations.

MangaTraders was like the actual GOOGLE for manga scanlations to download.

In my opinion, MangaTraders is at the same level as OneManga (back in the day when it was still alive).

I'm so pissed and desperated.

Everything I readed, I downloaded from MT.

I discovered tons of mangas and manhwa there. Literally tons...

I can't believe it's dead...

no no no no no no no no no

Well there is currently a back up with all the manga running, it was made by /a/ (assuming people know what that is here), but I don't think It's my place to share it with people, they are kind of a bunch of elitist circle jerks, but they did made the web, so I won't be the be the one betraying their trust.

http://manga.madokami.com/Manga/

That's the link, it's blocked with a pass, if you can figure it out you got all the manga that you want there. (this much is enough to be hated quite a bit by the guys that worked on the page, but whatever)

Just don't make threads asking for it.

It was a sad news Indeed !!

If you haven't read the irc chat of how MT owner come to shutting down MT yet,
THEN READ ON =~>

1.
* loner42 is now known as Wilik
2.
<Wilik> hey IFHTT
3.
<IFHTT> sup man
4.
<Wilik> nada
5.
<Wilik> been a fun day
6.
<IFHTT> looks like it sad
7.
<Wilik> figured I might as well come out of hiding and join irc
8.
<IFHTT> lol well it's good to see ya even if the circumstances are shitty
9.
<Wilik> agreed
10.
<snesker> Wilik: did you ever engage in an operation with 7chan?
11.
<Wilik> so I just got done reading a bunch of foolz.us threads about our site
12.
<Wilik> snesker, no
13.
<Wilik> apparently some dummy named BoToX hacked the site
14.
<Wilik> hes from Austria
15.
<woxxy> pretty much, his friends learned a way to enter and he used it
16.
<Wilik> and woxxy, I read you were in the process of trying to archive the entire website
17.
<woxxy> then in that chat he gave a link to the dump
18.
<woxxy> and that got published right away
19.
<woxxy> yeah
20.
<Wilik> how successful were you?
21.
<woxxy> I suppose I’m getting direct download from Yukimura-San
22.
<woxxy> so i’ll start from scratch
23.
<snesker> other guys were at 50% or so, if I recall
24.
<Wilik> 50% of the entire 1.5tb collection?
25.
<snesker> if I recall
26.
<snesker> 16 or 17 100gb chunks
27.
<snesker> maybe with redundancy because the guy doing it is bad
28.
<Wilik> well 16 or 17 100gb chucks would give the entire collection if my math serves me right
29.
<woxxy> lol
30.
<snesker> 50% of that
31.
<Wilik> probably gonna be slightly more difficult to get the chucks atm
32.
<Wilik> since I shutdown all the servers
33.
<Wilik> cept for the webserver, so we could post the hacking notice
34.
<snesker> slightly more impossible, you mean
35.
<snesker> so now Jewy McShadyObjective is the only one getting the files
36.
<woxxy> LOL
37.
<Wilik> well, I do pay the server bills
38.
<snesker> from 111 Nigeria Street, South Africa
39.
<Wilik> na
40.
<Wilik> im not from Africa
41.
<snesker> not you
42.
<woxxy> he means me
43.
<Wilik> lol
44.
<Wilik> that depends
45.
<Wilik> im not sure who you are, and I dont remember telling Yuki to give you direct access wink
46.
* ChanServ sets mode +a #tradersnetwork Yuki|Phone
47.
* ChanServ gives channel operator status to Yuki|Phone
48.
<snesker> also, I thought the reason we were in this mess was because you don't pay the server bills
49.
<woxxy> talk to yuki
50.
<Wilik> +o smile
51.
<Wilik> lol, but the bills do get paid, when the donations are met, someone reported us to paypal which caused the paypal account to be terminated and all donations lost
52.
<snesker> so strangers pay the bills
53.
<Wilik> donations pay the bills
54.
<snesker> so your name is donations
55.
<Wilik> nope
56.
<Wilik> technically on mt I go by Aftershock
57.
<snesker> I go by mrsupsalts
58.
<Wilik> im not sure who you are, I only fix shit when its really broken, pay the bills (with donations) and give horrible news to the community these days
59.
<snesker> aww, shit, I just have away a shitload of personal information
60.
<Wilik> its ok, its not important
61.
<snesker> glad you think my privacy isn't important
62.
<Wilik> it is, but at this point, not much we can do about it
63.
<woxxy> you can get to mailing every user in your database to advise them to change the mail
64.
<Wilik> since all the private info on mt has been leaked onto the internet
65.
<woxxy> err
66.
<woxxy> change passwords
67.
<Wilik> yea, I am working on a script to do that
68.
<woxxy> cool
69.
<Wilik> its gonna take a while, there is 900k+ users
70.
<woxxy> i know
71.
<woxxy> gotta do in batch or something
72.
<Wilik> hey its the foolz.us guys, cool
73.
<Adm|nymous> i was summoned here for some reason none
74.
<woxxy> nope my name is Jewy McShadyObjective :^)
75.
<snesker> it really is
76.
<Wilik> cool
77.
<Wilik> from south africa, right?
78.
<woxxy> I’m a Shepardi Jew from South Africa that’s right
79.
<Wilik> nice, how many goats do you have?
80.
<woxxy> oh vey
81.
<woxxy> i have none
82.
<Adm|nymous> i just gutted the last one
83.
<Wilik> cool
84.
<Wilik> so woxxy, Yuki isnt gonna give you direct access
85.
<woxxy> i see
86.
<woxxy> you guys have a new plan?
87.
* Yuki|Phone gives channel operator status to Wilik
88.
<snesker> the files have to be had somehow, before the site goes down
89.
<snesker> for good, I mean
90.
<Yuki|Phone> There, back to drinking for me now
91.
<Wilik> have fun Yuki
92.
<Wilik> ping me when you're home
93.
<Wilik> well
94.
<Wilik> as for what we do now
95.
<Wilik> thats a very good question
96.
<Wilik> what do you plan to do woxxy?
97.
<Wilik> setup a new site?
98.
<snesker> others from /a/ plan to as well
99.
<Wilik> do what we've been doing for the past 10 years?
100.
<woxxy> pretty much
101.
<Yuki|Phone> Not till tomorrow man, ttyl
102.
<woxxy> maybe with different structure and infrastructure but the idea is serving direct downloads
103.
<woxxy> and make it easy
104.
<snesker> some guys from /a/ want to create multiple redundancies and archive all of the files and see what happens from there
105.
<Wilik> interesting
106.
<Wilik> how do you guys plan to pay for it?
107.
<Wilik> donations as well?
108.
<Wilik> or just plain old kind people giving you servers?
109.
<woxxy> we got the foolz archive that pays for servers already
110.
<woxxy> this could probably run for free
111.
<woxxy> maybe ads at most
112.
<woxxy> if it gets pricier
113.
<Wilik> yea ads are crap payouts
114.
<woxxy> i know
115.
<woxxy> and really unreliable
116.
<Wilik> manga isnt a field people are fighting to get a hold in
117.
<woxxy> neither it’s nice to put ads on copyrighted material
118.
<woxxy> getting busted is easy
119.
<Wilik> yep
120.
<woxxy> part of foolz team has been working on a release tracking site since past year
121.
<woxxy> this would just come to be integrated to that
122.
<snesker> you'd better do it right
123.
<snesker> people have mangaupdates and google and it does them fine
124.
<woxxy> snesker I’ll give all data if we were to fail
125.
<woxxy> that’s for sure
126.
<woxxy> it’s just how it works for the archive too
127.
<woxxy> if we were to not be able to archive a board, we get in contact with people who can keep it up
128.
<Wilik> well if people have mangaupdates and google, why is getting everything from mt so important?
129.
<woxxy> because scanlators died in the meanwhile and if we lose this data is pretty much gone?
130.
<Wilik> I suppose that makes sense, we do have 10 years worth of manga
131.
<woxxy> yeah.
132.
<woxxy> i even lost my own manga once
133.
<woxxy> that’s why i got a login from you
134.
<Wilik> ah
135.
<Wilik> that sucks
136.
<woxxy> i mean the ones edited by my group
137.
<woxxy> well just a few chapters
138.
<woxxy> but if they weren’t there
139.
<woxxy> it would’ve been pretty hard to get back originals
140.
<snesker> and there's the 6000 mt-exclusive fujoshit titles
141.
<woxxy> lol
142.
<snesker> remember the 6000
143.
<Wilik> lol
144.
<Wilik> is that some kind of spartan joke bigrazz
145.
<snesker> jew joke
146.
<snesker> poorly worded
147.
<snesker> since the channel is jew city
148.
<Wilik> well woxxy
149.
<Wilik> heres what I can do
150.
<snesker> give me little kisses
151.
<snesker> henceforth to be referred to as 'sloppy wets'
152.
<Wilik> I got an offer a while back to sell mt, but I turned it down
153.
<Wilik> i'll sell everything to you, domain and all, for $10k
154.
<snesker> that was a bad decision if you're not going to put some serious effort into improving the site
155.
<woxxy> i don’t want your site, you just leaked passwords for 1m accounts
156.
<Wilik> k
157.
<snesker> I must be out of the loop in the jew world, because I don't understand how a site that doesn't run without donations can expect to go for 10k.
158.
<woxxy> i thought we were going to save data
159.
<Wilik> woxxy, probably not
160.
<woxxy> and i even had the support from the guy who donated 1800$
161.
<woxxy> this is offputting
162.
<Wilik> yea, it kinda sucks
163.
<snesker> so are the servers still burning donated cash while the site is down?
164.
<Wilik> like getting your paypal account killed by some asshat because they dont like your site, or getting over that hurdle only to have some other guy basically dos your site because they want to make a 'archive' or the second you solve that problem getting your site hacked, its all in a days work I suppose bigrazz
165.
<snesker> well, it was more like 40 or 50 guys
166.
<Wilik> guy is a relative term here snesker
167.
<snesker> well
168.
<snesker> I don't particularly think it's right for a dying, unmotivated monolith to hold, as you said, 10 years worth of content hostage for 10 grand.
169.
<Wilik> lol
170.
<snesker> Even in the face of a guy who gave you like $1800 to ensure everyone could get the manga.
171.
<Wilik> the $1800 is going to go towards keeping our backup server online
172.
<snesker> After you leaked 900k emails and passwords.
173.
<woxxy> i think he was promised that he’d get a copy?
174.
<woxxy> don’t remember heh
175.
<Wilik> how could I remember? I didnt promise him a copy
176.
<woxxy> i dunno, i read things on 4chan you know
177.
<Wilik> if Yuki said he was going to get a copy, i'll make sure he does, until then we'll work on rewriting mt, which luckily 1800 will pay for our backup server for quite a while, so we can do that smile
178.
<snesker> How long until the site is fully functional again?
179.
<Wilik> good question
180.
<Wilik> since I actually have a day job these days and am not a unemployeed college student like I was years ago when I wrote the original mt code base
181.
<Wilik> might take a bit longer then 3 days like last time
182.
<snesker> With your business attitude I doubt anyone would help for free.
183.
<Wilik> help write the code?
184.
<snesker> it's not like the site isn't written already
185.
<Wilik> but as you guys have pointed out, its full of security holes right?
186.
<Wilik> for instance, we practically gave away 1m user accounts
187.
<Wilik> would you continue to use that code?
188.
<snesker> So you're going to re-write the whole thing, one some guy's dime, for which he was misled, when you have no time and the same level of skill that allowed it to happen in the first place?
189.
<snesker> I should stop antagonizing you, for my own sake.
190.
<snesker> on*
191.
<Wilik> lol
192.
<Wilik> so you assume that I have the same level of skill I had 10 years ago?
193.
<snesker> yes
194.
<Wilik> k
195.
<Wilik> then why do it, right?
196.
<Wilik> i'll just give bluethings his money back and kill my servers
197.
<Wilik> thanks for all the fish!
198.
<woxxy> i’d rather that heh
199.
<woxxy> guy is extremely generous
200.
<woxxy> and nice
201.
<Wilik> woxy good luck on your endeavor
202.
<woxxy> i rather have the guy back with the money really
203.
<woxxy> and thank you
204.
<snesker> I'm confused
205.
<snesker> Are you fixing the site?
206.
<Wilik> no
207.
<Wilik> im giving bluethings his cash back and canceling my servers
208.
<Wilik> thanks for the input guys
209.
<snesker> c'mon
210.
<Wilik> c'mon what?
211.
<snesker> don't be that way
212.
<Wilik> ha
213.
<snesker> If you quit now, what were the 10 years for?
214.
<Wilik> woxxy is cool with it, and you basically called me a hack, whats the big deal?
215.
<Wilik> they were for fun
216.
<snesker> We're just two random guys from the internet.
217.
<Wilik> yep
218.
<Wilik> im not taking any of this to heart, its all good snesker
219.
<snesker> ;-;
220.
<Wilik> shit happens dude
221.
<Wilik> you got google
222.
<Wilik> and mangaupdates
223.
<Wilik> have fun
224.
<Talarczyk> Wait, are you really killing the whole thing off?
225.
<snesker> What about all the manga that can't be sourced elsewhere?
226.
<snesker> there were 6000 titles at last count
227.
<Wilik> snesker, yea that sucks
228.
<Wilik> seem my previous comment
229.
<Talarczyk> >All this people flowing in from /a/
230.
<Chojiki> Yo
231.
<Talarczyk> Well, shit. That's it, I guess.
232.
<neko> So the services goes down? Finally?
233.
<Chojiki> Is what's going around the baords true?
234.
<Wilik> neko, yes
235.
<Talarczyk> Yep.
236.
<neko> Are you sharing the database, at least?
237.
<neko> Not the user one though. Lol.
238.
<sakisan> Wilik: pm'd you about some stuff
239.
<Wilik> neko, no
240.
<Talarczyk> So, what the hell was the point of this? http://i.imgur.com /SxYwo0z.png
241.
<neko> Why not? There is an attempt to save the work. YOUR work.
242.
<Wilik> the database isnt gonna help save my work, people just want the manga, the manga isnt in the database
243.
<sakisan> yes, but your work, i.e. the site, facilitated the collection and distribution of a lot of manga that now isn't available elsewhere
244.
<Wilik> Talarczyk: its important people know to change their passwords
245.
<Wilik> Talarczyk: for security reasons
246.
<Chojiki> There's gotta be some kinda middle ground we can reach here.
247.
<neko> I hope so.
248.
<Tensei> Can't you at least wait unti lthe 14th like you were going to originally so that the people who were trying to save the manga can finish?
249.
<risho> listen if you're going to be giving up everything, which is understandable after all that mt has had to put up with over the past week, wouldn't it be best for the community if you passed the torch so to speak?
250.
<sakisan> like I said to you in PM--a lot of people are appreciative of what you've donethe database

You've could've just posted the pastebin link instead of that mess of a post. But then again, previous posters already stated MT isn't coming back so I'm not sure what point you're trying to make (It's not like it's hard to find)...

Not quite a backup, more like collective effort of everyone in /a/. There's a spreadsheet of manga uploaded and uploading so people can help out if they want to. I think it's set up so we can wait for the actual backup.

I can't believe people from the anime/manga community hacked one of the most important sites that had ever existed in this circle. It is not only disgusting, but enraging. I really hope someone with enough abilities would give them a taste on their own medicine, to know how bitter and distasteful this is.
Even more than priving people from gathering in a community by sharing the things they love the most, what is really scandalous is that they would use the info of the donators. Who they think they are? that is private information and could harm the same people that sustained the website for millions to access. This really gives me the creeps... dead

My sentiments exactly. u _u Everything you just said.
I wonder if the you-know-what LJ community will start back up a little...

<snesker> and there's the 6000 mt-exclusive fujoshit titles


Wow, DIE. = _=

Ugh. Who the hell is that guy? He's rude, too.

edit: You can figure out the pass easily by Googling "madokami" and "password". Don't overthink it.
Eh, I can wait a few months for Natsume and--just to spite this guy, I'm going to DL every Dangerous Pleasure and Nakama release. :/

edit: I'm confused. If BoToX hacked MT, why is he in madokami's IRC? ...Huh?

In case you weren't aware, not only is manga scanlation a gray line, but manga hosting is even more so. I mean, who would you even report it to? That would cause more trouble than it's worth.


It is perfectly legal. So you would be reporting to the police, specifically their cyber crime division

I'm utterly shocked and upset by the fact. It was the gold mine for manga from the past, manga that is no longer on the web anywhere to download because those scanlators are long gone. I appreciate everything MT has contributed. I didn't care so much about the available online reader that was included eventually since there are so many of those already. Anyways, thanks for posting that IRC conversation.

As for the danger of privacy to those who had donated to MT previous...prayers to them. I get that people hack for the thrill, challenge, and fun of it but why not put such skills to better use? Gosh, read that short IRC chat about getting the addresses and stuff of people who donated.....smh
