Summary of The Company Announcements

When is ___ coming out?

It comes out when we’re done. When is it done? We don’t know. You try coordinating 4~5 unpaid volunteers people to work in chains and tell me when each of them can spend several uninterrupted hours working. And above all, we’re not that uptight.

We have a sort of rough release schedule, though. But we can’t guarantee release dates or times, because our staff have work/school/lives, or sometimes, they just want to take a break. And hey, everyone needs a break now and then, right? And these are rough schedules; “weekly” may end up being a release every 10 days.

    If you need additional proof readers, I’m up for it.

  2. thiagoavlis says:

    Hey guys, I can be a proofreader then. Even though english is not my native language, I am pretty sure i can do a good job.

  3. thacabras says:

    I can be a proofreader.

  4. prettyman says:

    I would like to proofread for you.

  5. prettyman says:

    put the wrong email on the comment above, this email is the one I currently use

  6. Grumpy says:

    You know… we do have the application forum for a reason.

  7. Grumpy says:

    Need moar proofreaders again who’ll scream at me for saying “moar”…

  8. Pride says:

    Question: How many hours/minutes per week do proofreaders usually need to spend?

    • Grumpy says:

      A single chapter can take anywhere between 1~3 hours on average depending on the comic. Lengthy series coupled with lot of facts/translations to double check are heavily time consuming. But, we’d like to get active people who’d obviously take more than one project and have some extra availability for subbing in as others on odd cases. So, I’d say 6/week is about minimum.

  9. Nolzi says:

    So the Knight Run Fan Cafe stopped with the translation? :(

    • Grumpy says:

      Our liaison has given me some confusing information, but for the most part, seems like a “yes” to that question.

      • Nolzi says:

        Noooooo!
        Do you have anyone else willing to pick up the TL?
        Its such a great webtoon, I love Pray.

  10. mjd says:

    I just wanted to point out, i tried to start reading zusun, but the first chapters read online sends me to the old site

    • mjd says:

      To clarify it was the chapter 0, not chapter 1, i did not try chapter 1

    • Grumpy says:

      Yes, we stopped using the old reader and therefore, the old links don’t work. The download should still work however. For reading online, u should use Batoto, it holds all our chapters (worthy of keeping).

    hey i am thinking about trying to be a cleaner but i am lazy so is there any projects where i won’t have to clean so much (like no sfx, 30 pages at the most and have to clean like every 2 weeks is my dream).

    Also on a side note what is Canada Day as an American i think the greatest thing about Canada is that when i go some places i can pretend to be Canadian so people will like me more.

  12. blindbox says:

    Grumpy, could you implement a better search engine in Batoto? This may not be the best place to ask but finding manga based on category is hard on Batoto. Well if it’s difficult, I just remembered a method where I’ll just search on mangaupdates and find the manga on Batoto.

  13. A-chan says:

    What does “outsourcing translations” mean?
