@TheDefend Them and a bunch of other groups had a big temper tantrum and removed all of their non-joint chapters from Mangadex in an attempt to get more money from ads on their own shitty sites.

@TheDefend what can be roughly summarized as collective sulking. hatigarm and a bunch of big scanlation groups like meraki, jaimini, and champion pulled out over disagreements with the MD crew, alledging that Holo is profiteering off their work (which he clarifies and insists he isn't since all these groups have their own patreon to make money off anyway). so the shitslinging happened and now readers are caught in the crossfire of this drama BS. IMO certainly not helping to improve their reputation, and this isn't the first time someone pulled out over some disagreements. i only hope that these guys can cool down, discuss, and reupload so everything can go back to normal because i sure as hell don't want to go to aggregators just to read new chapters (some of which don't even bother to credit the groups at all).

@Wolvenworks Tbh this drama makes me feel disgusted. MD is a friendly platform for reader and scanlator, it made me go to many scanlators site to check up what they did... but here I don't want to do it again, they want us to have to go on their site ? Well I don't know for the others but I'm done, I'll still use MD but only for manga I'm already following, to what's new I'll use aggregator since there I'll be sure to be able to find new and interesting stuff without having holes or suppression of chapters just because some group thought that the fan shouldn't be able to read it in any other place than their own site. If manga is what managed to gather us here we could also say that it is what make us part way... That's too bad I guess.

(note that I'll still use MD since I still hope that group will continue to upload their work here and that they will continue to be respected but I do know that a lot of manga will be missing if it continue in that way and I don't want to miss "the good one")

@Mortaze yeah i hope these groups kiss and make up already. even if MD is bad it's still a lesser evil than stuff like MangaFxx

I mean, at least the aggregator sites don't lead hate mobs as I see done here. The scanlators have no obligations to any of us. What they are doing isn't legal, but neither is what MD is doing, nor what we are doing. We should be out there buying the stuff if we really cared. Hating on them for not wanting to partake in this community (of lets be honest toxic waste) isn't the way to make anyone feel welcome. MD would be better off with no sitewide forum. Maybe a place for input on development, but other than that, me, you, we're a waste of space and a toxic one at that. I'm out, got my app for follows. I'll find a way for finding new stuff too.

@NLight i would buy stuff if i could, and i have done so. it's just that the english manga selection in jakarta is very limited. sure i could just buy online but that shipping cost isn't gonna be pretty

Well, that's bad. They were actually good guys, translation and quality wise. But I guess noone is perfect. RIP.

Why remove all chapters of your old releases from your own site?
