On /a/, I often refer to reddit (more or less ironically) as a community for “normal people”. I honestly have no issue with them, as long as they don’t come posting with that mindset on /a/.
Edit: the new rule was vetoed, so the below doesn’t count much anymore.
Edit from M: LOL
Today, though, they really touched my heart.
In a thread commenting on our post about how some scanlators make profit, it was decided that from now on the redditors (is that what you call them?) will always have to link to the scanlators’ sites to talk about freshly released manga, and posting links to manga aggregators will be prohibited.
You can read about the new rule here.
Scanlation, more than getting traffic, needs popularity. This is in order to get more applicants, which was a problem last year due to other leech sites keeping readers uninformed about us. Of course, it’s very illegal for aggregators to make any profit (and such large profits at that) on the backs of mangakas.
Supporting us is the right move to get more quality and speed in our release. And possibly a more honest community of scanlators. Who knows.
Thank you, /r/manga.
