Two New Novels, next propositions and tag system
Two new novels were added (Swallowed Star and USAW) as winners of the survey.
SS has pre-filled glossary, due to the courtesy of Kill-me-but-i-don't-remember (I quietly hope that owner identifies himself and claims all his due glory)
In the meantime there were also added two other novels because of donations, but everyone should have noticed by now.
Usual routine, as always I am waiting for new propositions to add to the survey, post them under the news and I will chose to add only those that were repeated mostly by the users
As for the tag system...
It gathers dust for such a long time that I thought that maybe it is the time to use it... and because of that I have proposition how to cede most of that job to others.
Anyone can propose group of tags (not genres!), they have to be coherent and succinct up to the 70 with obligatory list how those tags would be assigned to novels that were already mtled here.
Since that is gigantic amount of work, then after gathering list of propositions I will create survey of which proposition has to be used and winner (the one whom proposed the best tag system) will get chance to chose 1 novel to translate outside of the queue.
You can send propositions at lnmtl.helpdesk(at)gmail.com.
New Survey, Otherworldly Evil Monarch and Fixes
Long time no see. Writing newses by manually adding them to the database is such tedious job, that I have to limit it to the minimum.
But here we are. Some things happened and it is time to sum them up.
So for starters - as many have noticed LLS and WDQK have finally gotten raw source changed and now they have got (hopefully) all of the missing chapters added.
There were slight alternations in FAQ and About, mostly about support tab which wasn't working.
Meh~, obviously nobody came to read this news because of those reasons.
Otherworldly Evil Monarch has been added and it was added as a one of the winners of the survey. Most likely current survey will have one more winner selected and also because donation are rapidly approaching 100% then most likely two top position of survey will be translated soon.
Those that voted for OEM now can re-vote.
That would be all folks~. See you soon.
Winners of current survey, new post-translation and new propositions for survey
The votes in survey were artificially raised up, but since they weren't deleted in time, and someone raised the bar of 100$ in donations, then I will bend the rules slightly this one time.
In 36 hours I will add Chaotic Sword God and Heavenly Jewel Changes.
Also, I want to write new thing which I call "post-translation". Currently before translating chapter in third-party's translator I pre-translate it with terms of glossary. Now I want also replace (fix) some terms after receiving translated chapter from the third-party's service.
It is supposed to be less intrusive, and mostly fix "Country Code" like "US", "France", "Canada" etc.
Because of that I need your help in creating list of those mistakes - if you remember any mistake of that kind, post original chinese character and what you think it should be replaced be (optionally you can also post how it was mistranslated for fun).
Last thing - I am waiting for propositions for next survey. I will only on those propositions that are proposed the most.
BTTH and DE, winners of pre-christmas survey
So as I have announced previously, we have 2 winners (more precisely 2700+ chapters), which are Battle Through the Heavens and Desolate Era.
I was thinking if I should bend a rules slightly and add 3 winners, but finally decided against it, simply because doing only those 2 sapped my strengths enough.
So, there you have it. Two new series.
I am waiting for additional propositions to the survey, you can post them under the news
One-time deal is still in place. If you wish to bribe me before 1st of January to translate additional novels you can do it now. More information you will find there New Survey and christmas amount of winners
New Survey and christmas amount of winners
Everybody does have a calendar, and nobody needs me to point it out that christmas break is incoming. As everybody, I also would like to spend this time by dilly-dallying and reading novel from time-to-time.
That's exactly why I have thought that this time, prior to this break, survey will have 2 or 3 winners instead of only 1. Upper limit of sum of chapters to translate will be 2000 chapters. If it will be used up by two top positions of survey then there will be 2 winners, otherwise there will be 3 winners.
And additionally I would like to propose for now, one-time offer. If someone will be bored prior to the end of current year, and will want to read any of novel which is listed in survey, then he can force me by incentive through donations to do it in 2 days time tops. Rule will be simple - if someone donates 100$ he chooses himself what to translate, if the 100$ will be reached by multiple donators - then current top position of survey will be translated.
I am slightly worried that server won't survive higher traffic during christmas, so as counter-measure I am trying to accumulate funds to be able to change server if it were needed.
Ah~ I would forget. The part "has glossary" in survey mean, that someone (I don't remember who and hope that he will show up himself and claim his due credit) posted on chat 3 glossaries, which he said were created while reading whole novels (meaning they are complete). So I guess it would make sense to choose them, but I won't force anyone.
