First of all, sorry.

I've been sick, and only briefly mentioned it on chat. That is reason behind lack of fixes and addition of novels during last few days.


Let's start with why there were constant weird updates of MP, ED and RtW - it was because of raw source issues (on their side), and they have dealt with them by themselves, so today I merely deleted those weird chapters on our side.

Second, the donations bar crossed over 100%, so I'm really a superstar (IRaS or IARS) has been added, and since there has been delay then Perless Demonic Lord also will be added. I will try to add it tomorrow, I will also reset the counter after adding.

Third, survey is coming towards the end so with two top positions being taken down, the winner will be The Portal Of Wonderland, but don't expect me to add it earlier than Saturday (Sunday is the most probable option).


Last news, is about propositions for new survey - I will be no longer asking for them under the news.

I will write new page for proposing novels, where users with over xx (let's say for now that it will be 300 points, but it can still change), will be able to propose limited amount of novels by themselves. Let's hope that it will help make surveys that will be based on those propositions more interesting.


I would have forgotten - I will most likely try to add bonus novel(-s, if I have more time than I think I do) somewhere near 9th of October.

Google translate has improved on thier Chinese to English translation system. Some scenerios were described a bit more accurately. This site only has definite names for characters, places, etc. When it comes to describing sequences with clarity, it loses to Google's new translation sequences.

@StaticHD not really, at least not for today.

Google uses now neural machine, so it means it has to gain knowledge. Not any knowledge, but for it to be better it has to gain knowledge related to material you are translating. In our case those are fantasy novels.

Since Google's primary target audience is work-related, then I wouldn't expect it to be able to understand chinese novels better any soon.

Anyway - based on articles I have read, the Systran's neural translator (not the one we use) is actually far better than Google's one.

Long story short, it's good to hear, but it doesn't change a thing today.

I spend more time on this page than at home and still don't have any points. The points distribution is a little bit annoying, it should spread them by hours

Have you noticed that Lord Xue Ying chinese name isn't the actual chinese name? When I google it, it leads to some random other novel, the proper chinese name is on novelupdates.

The character 啸 is being translated as the phrase "(to) eat delicacies" when the verb "(to) shout" or something like that would be much better. Single character translations often get rejected so I'm letting you know here.

Excuse me, can you please verify and replace Lord Xue Ying chapters? Vol. 27 has majority of its chapters screwed up with bad formatting, or outright missing. Also, is there any way to PM you Xev?
