Hi my young and wise ones~ We had a vote on discord about whether or not we should keep the download and password and 4 hour thing. Majority of the vote was to remove it because there was no point in it. I mean, only 3 of the project is popular and the rest is just dead or no views at all. So not unless the projects or if the group is big, I have decided to remove password-protected releases and early releases. And since I don’t have a reader page and around June or July the website will go back to being bapscans.wordpress.com I won’t be able to pay for the website since I don’t have a job anymore and donations aren’t coming in, I mean a few of you did donated for raws but that stopped so yeah thank you to those that did. So from this day forward, the mangadex will not have a delay but I will still post announcement in the discord. You can’t really post information on the upload so it’ll be some information on discord and a whole ass essay on our wordpress So you guys don’t have to wait anymore on those dead-barely-any-views projects
On regards of our activty, there are times where I’m like super sonic and then there other times where I’m like a freaking snail. The reason is because like everyone else, I have a life and this life has very strict moms, to those people who have strict moms, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. I’m also in multiple groups to keep me distracted from whatever is going on with my life. I usually prefer finishing all of those other assignment first before I do this group’s work. Even though, this is my priority, but since I volunteer to help others, I should give them equal love and my work thing. I’ve been receiving a lot of hatred from readers or from random people that don’t even read our releases but still like to talk trash. There are times where they ask things like “why are you guys so slow?” , “You guys have horrible translations/editing/etc.”, “You should go kill yourself for scanlating these horrible manga/manhua/manwha.” and it was hurtful at first but then like… I don’t understand why they would say those things when I see a bunch of things on their page saying they love this and that, and it was much much worse than what we do here. I just ignored them most of the time because it’s not worth my time.
We picked up a couple of new projects due to our translators do not want to work on projects that another translator was working on or is working on. They wanted their own project, so therefore, we had to pick up new projects. As for whether or not it’ll be sniped due to my activity is something I cannot handle. It’ll be based on how well things goes~ So please be patient when things aren’t going as fast.
