State of Scanlation – July Edition

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these. Did ya miss it?
Our Hiatus is over! We come bringing new chapters (releasing later today) and new features!

Project Status

Almost an entire year ago, we removed the Project Status section from our site.
We’re finally bringing it back!

Trello is an amazing service that removes all inaccuracies previously seen on the old Project Status (refer to the FAQ page for more information). It’s simple to understand, so I’ll skip the in-depth tutorial. Any chapter tagged with {Translated} has been translated, anything that hasn’t been tagged, hasn’t been translated. Simple, right?
This way readers can see exactly what stage their desired chapter is in.

The main feature, some (not all) readers would appreciate – is mobile notifications on the progression of their ‘watched’ project. (You have to manually select which projects to watch for notifications. Of course, you aren’t forced to follow anything). A member of staff will comment on a chapter card something like, “{Insert Role}: Done,” once they’ve finished their part. Just know that you probably won’t see an update for the completion of typesetting as I always typeset and quality check at the same time, then release right after.

Overall, this is an improvement for everyone, not just keen readers but for also us staff.
It makes the quality-of-life just that bit better around here.

Weekly Voted To-Do List (New System. Discord Only)

Once a week, we’ll give out a realistic, numbered list of chapters that will be done throughout the next week. The list will be comprised of chapters that will 100% be released that week, it’ll probably only contain chapters within the editing stages.

By reacting with numbers, everyone will vote on the indefinite order of which that list will be released in. However, joint projects and staff dedicated projects will not be affected by the votes outcome. For example: If Dungeon Nursery was to receive the lowest votes thus putting it as the last chapter to be released that week, as it’s currently the only project with a full list of dedicated staff on it, those staff will still work on it – more than likely first – concluding in it being released much earlier in the release order. As joint projects are series shared between multiple groups working together, naturally we wouldn’t include these in our release order.

Voting: Thursday – Friday night (Not factoring in time zones)

Patron increased votes applicable.


How We Function

In light of recent events, I thought it would be a good idea for everyone to know how we do things. This way, you know precisely what you’re in store for if you apply to join.

We are different to most groups in how we operate. Staff are extremely free and do what they want. No deadlines, no schedules. Just try get the work done as soon as possible. As such, any form of management doesn’t exactly go to plan in practice. Honestly, we question have we’ve made it this far quite often, but it works for us.
Not all our projects are updated frequently, a lot of staff have been sitting around with nothing to do lately. So, I decided a change was in order and we’ve scrapped our old way of doing things. Well, mostly that is.

In a sense, staff are even more free now.
Assigned projects are no longer a thing. Technically, you can work on whatever you want as soon as it becomes available in your role. Translators have and will stay dedicated to their project(s) – you won’t see a change happen here. Proofreaders are under the control of their recently appointed Queen, so they have the least freedom amongst staff. My condolences.
Aside from that, the only projects off-limits to the rest of staff is those with a dedicated-staff [member] on it. Currently, Dungeon Nursery is the only project with a full roster of dedicated staff. You’ll see releases of it much, much more often compared to any other project because of this.
Instead of being assigned projects, available staff will now claim pages from a chapter and will work together to get that chapter done as fast as possible. This is a more common way of doings things and should increase releases drastically.

This new system will work for us because of who we are. We are all skilled enough to take on almost every project we do individually. Naze boku no sekai being one of the few exceptions. We aren’t blinded by pride and will gladly accept the help of others should we ever need it – even if this means having someone go over our work. Scanlating is supposed to be a fun and enjoyable hobby. If any of the above rubs you the wrong way, then it’ll probably hinder you from having fun and enjoying what you’re doing here.

We have a somewhat large backlog of chapters. With the new system in action, we will work towards getting everything caught up asap. If you’re interested in applying, please do asap! Our time is limited, and we can only accept good, [mainly] experienced people because of this. Maybe one day we’ll open our doors to newcomers and teach everyone from the ground up again. Until then, keep practicing!

Use adblock on our reader!

We recently found out that ads have been appearing on the reader despite us not running any ads on our sites. The ads that appear on the reader is from Disqus (chat feature) to which we must pay to remove. As I recently exhausted the remainder of our funds renewing WordPress premium (Premium removes ads placed by WP), we don’t even have enough to order all our monthly raws let alone now additionally pay to remove ads on the reader. We’ve lost patrons due to our hiatus last month, so money is kinda tight right now. We’ll start removing the ads from Disqus monthly starting from the next Patreon pay-out on August 2nd. Until then, use adblock!

We are aware that some readers intentionally disable their adblock to support scanlators, but please do the opposite for us. We want readers to enjoy reading our releases with an ad-free experience. This may be a weird request, nonetheless, please follow through with it!
Thank you for your understanding.

Gonna sleep for a bit then release later.
