Another rant… sorry.
It happened again on Mangalator… but this time, I even sent the Chapter 1 raws to the site admin, since the manga series was missing both Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. I posted comments about translating the series, as well as sending the Chapter 1 raws, but once again, someone rudely jumps in without bothering to take a couple of minutes to read the comments first.
I got chastised by a reader who thought that I was being rude to the other translator for pointing out that they were rude about jumping in first to translate. Sure, I could have been more polite about it, but the direct approach seems to be more effective. I’ve tried polite before.
Anyway, I have the raws for Chapter 1 and 2 of a different manga series, but I think I’ll just scanlate them here myself.
I’m leaning towards less involvement on Mangalator as the current manga series that I’m translating wrap up. Then I’ll have less stress and more time to work on my own scanlation projects. 🙂
