It's sad but unfortunately it seems to be true. As some of you may have noticed over the past few days, links to download Pokemon manga on this forum have been disappearing as well as entire threads dedicated to them. Two of my threads were part of this and it was their disappearance that prompted me to contact Rukario, the site admin behind the recent deletings.

2) Could you send me a copy of the body of the original post in the Archive Thread. That post contained links that I otherwise have no way of recalling or locating, at least easily.

Thank you,

The Response
You can link to a website that has "more info" (don't say links.. ) and so on..

Just so you know.. PC doesn't want to link to any direct downloads of anything illegal or anything that can be perceived as such. Since most manga is licensed, the only allowed links are to official sites or to sites that has info, reviews, etc.. We do want to foster rich and productive discussions about them.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looking at this I think we can gleam several things:
1) PC doesn't want any direct download links posted anywhere on the site whether they be for manga, music, videos, or what have you.

2) PC doesn't want manga scans, links to them, or anything of the sort to be upload here. In other words, keep it legal like Serebii.

3) This means that scanlation projects, full volume scan projects, Photobucket scans, and anything else that involves uploading scans of manga is expressly prohibited on this site from this point forward.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While I can't say that I'm entirely happy with this, I understand where the Admins are coming from. I love getting stuff for free instead of having to pay almost $200.00 to have it shipped to me from Singapore. However, I don't want to get sued nor do I want others to get in trouble for my actions. So, I guess whether we like it or not, this forum is changing and people will just have to find somewhere else to post scans should they decide to continue doing so.

So what do you all think?

This can't be! No more scans? I see the laws of Serebii have caught up to this site. It's not fair! I do understand but ITS NOT FAIR!!!!

*Sigh* It was nice while it lasted. But now how will we know if Volumes 19, 24+ are posted? Could we set up a new "posting place" somehow?

minakichan
May 7th, 2008, 05:29 PM
Sighh...

omni, can you give me the list of links and stuff? I can put it on our totally defunct website pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net, and update it when you need or whatever. We have a web base of operations, I suppose we could use it. >_<;

No more scans? Well its bound to happen since I almost forgot they are illegal. If it were an anime it would be as easy as pie to get them which makes it more annoying that THAT pokemon anime is so easy to get.
This means that all the links to photobucket, mediafire, and megaupload are not allowed right? Although some people nag about scans simply because of impatience I can understand a little bit now in situations like these. But there is always putting the scans in another site like the pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net mentioned or a new photobucket and just PM the link to people.

hmm this is depressing news, i wonder why the sudden change of heart its been going on since nicoleb did it. and that was some time ago. i hope the might reconsider. if you do put it on that site mina said some one needs to inform nightwizard of it so he can give us a mediafire or something to put on the site.

or it can all be moved to the scanlation site with the forums open and we can post updates in there.

You only need till the R/S arc? I think you're overexagerating. There are still the FRLG and the emerald arc. Personally I would consider the ending of the emerald arc as all that I need for the moment since when I try searching for pokemon DP manga all I get is the one with Hayate. Seriously i can't find pokemon dp special.

Also seriously guys, if serebii.net was not careful about the manga scans we would have gotten all the scans until dp already however they would have been sued already so don't blame this site for doing the same.

Anyways, LJ's your best hope... at least this way... with the friends-only locking system, ah, you get what I mean...

NayrExoto
May 8th, 2008, 04:39 AM
Theres a way around all of this. First all you have to do is put the scans on pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net, if a new one is released make an anouncement here to inform us of the release.

they could open pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net forums and post it there, and we would have to check on it.

or we could use th good old buddy system, which is a terrible way to pass it around since no one could get it.

also we could still have the release thread were when one comes out we have to post link me Please and the volume #.

Donna
May 8th, 2008, 05:22 AM
Yes I totally agree with NayrExoto we just need to put all the links and stuff on that website :D

Are the other threads (Volume 17-20 release and FR/LG release) going to be deleted as wel?

Cid
May 8th, 2008, 05:34 AM
I have no idea if the other threads will get deleted but it's a good thing that NayrExoto found a way...

Maxim

Pokecommunity is scanning it.

That's all Mileyangel's fault! She mentioned on SerebiiForums that we scan Pokemon Mangas. Merrick noticed that and reported us. I hope he does a DBCOYOV.

While I can forgive Mileyangel, there's no doubt it is HER who revealed our secret world to inappriorate people.

Thanks to the two, there will never be any more scans on PokeCommunity.

This sucks. I just found this site yesterday after searching forever for Pokemon Adventure scans. Luckily I was able to get volumes 15 and 16 before the links were erased.

Also, is Viz the company that would sue? That would be really stupid if it is. Why do they care? They aren't selling anything past Yellow in America. Why are we prevented from reading this awesome series just because they own the copyright from the first few volumes and are to concerned about profits to publish the rest of the series (which, from what I've heard from you guys, would be ruined by Viz anyways)? I say if they aren't going to finish the series then they sholdn't have any right to prevent us from posting the volumes that they haven't been published on this forum.

single page (or 2) scans used to show what you mean in your post/discussion are allowed.
PC just doesn't want to support downloading scans, scan-groups, scanlations, etc. directly. like I said talk (lots, post a pic or 2) and go ahead and link to other sites with what you need..

are you saying that we could make a anouncemnet here and say its at sites like pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net?

and if you did not want to support any scans and stuff like that why you let nicoleb thread stay there for over 2 years? or why didnt you stop it earlier before this section made many, mnay people happy that way people will go " oh i under stand" and not over 10 volumes later? where the sense in that. now im not trying to be rude, but it peaked my curiosity.

Oh wow... not surprised that good ol' Serebii is behind this.

The thing here is that it only prohibits links to direct download sites. Since photobucket is a image hosting site and not a download site, it's still possible to post the scans on photobucket. So yeah, hopefully the scanning effort will still continue.

omni89
May 8th, 2008, 07:33 PM
Well I can't say I expected the response to be any different; take candy from a baby it will likely get pissed off. Lame metaphors aside, however, I have a few things I would like to share with you all.

1) Before you flame Rukario (and likely get banned for it) or MileyAngel (just reach for that stress toy Maxim and you'll feel better), I would like you all to know that the former was kind enough to send me all the links that I originally posted in the archive thread.

2) I still have scans of PS/PA on Photobucket and can easily repost the links to those.

3) After reviewing your feedback and even some Pms (I'm not usually very popular :D), I've decided that I will give the existing links I have to Minakichan to be posted on pkmntans. I just had a huge brainstorming session with her and we've got some neat ideas that we would like to see come to fruition. Things aren't really solid yet but we'll try to keep you posted.

4) For the time being we are thinking of limiting things to material that is not licensed or widely distributed outside of Asian territories. This means that for the moment stuff like Pokemon D&P and The Electric Tale of Pikachu are out of bounds as we don't want Viz coming after us the moment we get off the ground. PokeSpe and Golden Boys are alright though, we agreed.

May 8th, 2008, 07:51 PM
I have been reading the manga for quite some time. Please let us know what's up.

Are the photobucket scans not allowed?

Cid

well i read the remaining volumes anyway. better safe than sorry but that's good to know. Does this mean that there's still hope for vol 19?

lol, I always told myself that I'd be satisfied with reading the manga if I were able to read at least till the end of the Johto arc. Then the Hoenn arc. Now I want to finish the FrLg arc and Emerald and start D/P. I guess you cant really get enough of it. Makes me wish that i had a job

You mean the english version till 23 that have been uploaded so far? or do you have until volume 26? In a way some of us are lucky since we discovered the site right away and download. Its really a pity about volume 19 and 24-recent if the scans will stop there. In truth I really hate to read manga if they are incomplete since its a cliffhanger.

Wow, somebody's a little paranoid.

Honest to God, Maxim, do you think that I wanted this to happen?

This isn't the end of the world. Like people mentioned, there are alternative ways to reading the scans from now on. If this whole entire thing is my fault, and I do doubt that I'm responsible for everything, then I apologize. I was just trying to help out a few people, but I forgot how uptight Serebii is. But I don't think that it's appropriate to pin the blame on only one or two people.

I didn't say you did it on purpose. That's why I CAN forgive you this.

Now, a question. Why do I still see ROM Hacks here? It is also illegal piracy. So, why are all ROM Hack threads kept, while all the manga scan threads and links are deleted? I smell something strange.

Cid
May 9th, 2008, 04:40 AM
Yeah, that's pretty fishy, too. Though posting links to ROM Hack is against the rules already...

Argent Crusader
May 9th, 2008, 05:04 AM
Well, ROM hacking is mantained in a tricky way here...
The only links that are allowed are the IPS patches, since the content of those patches is irrelevant...
Maybe if we post a link to a SFX file whith volumes scans they can't be considered illegal, since they arent the files itself, its a exe that "creates" the files. Just look from the same perspective of the IPS patches... They aren't the ROM hacks themselves...

While this thread is still about it, can I ask for one thing?

Bigger, MUCH bigger text box, and a larger font, please. I beg you.
Also, instead of making a forum [which I guess you plan on, since I see the option there], a kind of a comment system might be better. Much smaller everything is much more accessible.

They already have some of the chapters up, but are in need of more. How about uploading what you all have, on there? For easy online viewing.

EDIT: Asked OneManga; here was the response:

"Hi there,

We do prefer to use the fan translated material rather than more
official ones. We understand that the scans available for Pokemon are
way ahead of what we have but as long as there is an ongoing fan
translation for the series we probably will not add the official
material yet.

But we thank you very much for making us the offer of sending us your
scans. It is good to know there are people out there wanting to share
manga with the rest of the community."

Hmmm... the situation is really complicated. I think blaming each other right now is really a bad idea. Now is also too late. Now we just need to think how to deal with this situation. I have two propositions, but I'm not sure that will work.

1. Maybe you should try to ask Mangafox ? They put on server the biggest number of chapters of Pokemon Adventures (144) and I hope they won't answer for it like OneManga, because it's not that popular. Or just talk with Stoptazmo, this website always put on their server fan scanlations if I remember correctly, but only in ZIP files.
2. Second option is just to put manga on website, which isn't from USA or UK. I also come from Poland, I should look for some cheap server to put all materials there.

You know, Merrick is sort of a "Sun King".

He thinks he shines like sun and is above everyone.

When {someone} mentioned us doing scans on the PokeCommunity, Merrick's brainwashed members started to yell "No! They Shouldn't! It's illegal! Our Lord will punish you!" And the "Lord" spotted it, and raided into PokeCommunity.

It's especially annoying considering that Merrick has all game ROMs on his computer (just look at his screenshots) and probably also manga scans from Coronis. He is NOTHING like a sun, in fact.

To be fair, just because he pirates stuff, doesn't mean he wants his site to get taken down. I wouldn't want my stuff messed up just because I have a few gigs of pirated material on my HD.

Why he would care about PC, though, I have no idea.

I dunno if I would assume that Serebii has Coronis' scans; does Coronis even have physical scans anyway? That's a HUGE amount of work, so there's no way sie could have taken books and scanned them in; the alternative is that sie uses existing scans from the nets, but I certainly couldn't find Japanese scans anywhere.

That doesn't mean Serebii is any better as a person, of course >_>; I honestly just think he acts like that because he doesn't want diverting attention-- after all, serebii.net has essentially the monopoly on PokeSpe information. It's like the friggin' Medieval Church; no one could read, so they had the monopoly on attention and information. Rassnfrassn jerkfaces.

I'm not happy about this, but, I understand Lucario's reasoning. *sigh*...

I dunno if I would assume that Serebii has Coronis' scans; does Coronis even have physical scans anyway? That's a HUGE amount of work, so there's no way sie could have taken books and scanned them in; the alternative is that sie uses existing scans from the nets, but I certainly couldn't find Japanese scans anywhere.

That doesn't mean Serebii is any better as a person, of course >_>; I honestly just think he acts like that because he doesn't want diverting attention-- after all, serebii.net has essentially the monopoly on PokeSpe information. It's like the friggin' Medieval Church; no one could read, so they had the monopoly on attention and information. Rassnfrassn jerkfaces.

As an aside, I went to Serebii's forums for about five minutes one time. Nothing could top the mix of hatred and rage that I felt toward the stupidity of that forum. Seriously, even our own Diamond and Pearl forum can't compare to them.

There are people that like Soulja Boy there.

And they're in the majority.

Yup, serebii forums is just noobish enough to allow art thieves to live. I know, my art was stolen there. And I left, fed up at the lousy control over art thieves.

Anyways, now that Coronis is gone (for a good cause), Serebii has only netkun to get PokéSpe info. I really hope that volume 29 comes out at July soon. Then maybe the Emerald conclusion will come to light.

I think Serebii is afraid of losing manga-wise to PC, now that the queen of his side of the PokéSpe chessboard is gone. The only reason I can think of why Serebii forums is popular is the manga section because no other site I know of has English PokéSpe info. He's probably trying to remove competition. To support my statement: Serebii didn't barge in until now, and definitely not before Coronis left. PC isn't his to dominate anyways, so he shouldn't play politics here.

Wow I'm surprised good ol' Joe isn't all over this yet. He has a knack of searching for his username "Serebii" just to find threads that talk about him and at least quell anything said against him.

Anyway, from my previous experience there, Joe is in a new level of elitism. Sometimes I think that the uppers here are elitists, but good ol' Serebii Joe brings it to a new level. Like you said, eliminating competition simply because he's the best there is. And like what Maxim said, he's the Sun King. Shining all over the place.

Anyway, the whole manga thing stemmed a long way back ever since my friends and I attempted to spark interesting in the manga and then Coronis just happens to start working for Serebii. But that was a long time ago. Now, apparently from what I'm reading, Coronis stopped working and Serebii just lost another vital part of his monopoly on Pokemon... so I guess he's just going dirty and starts attacking the actual fanbase of the manga... a little odd hm?

Elitist! Yeah! That's the word I was looking for!

I agree. All admins of bigger forums in the fandom are elitists, but Merrick wipes them out to the ground. He's an elitist titan.

I'm thinking we allow it for ANY manga discussion, but PokeSpe will be the main focus.

Theres a way around all of this. First all you have to do is put the scans on pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net, if a new one is released make an anouncement here to inform us of the release.

they could open pkmntrans.illusory-fragments.net forums and post it there, and we would have to check on it.

or we could use th good old buddy system, which is a terrible way to pass it around since no one could get it.

also we could still have the release thread were when one comes out we have to post link me Please and the volume #.
well that website doesnt work no more....

Plus, I've never seen complaints about scans on LJ before (check out the Naruto/Bleach comms), and really if you make the comm yourself, you make the rules. I'd definetely be in! You could do so much on an LJ community, and I know at least five-six people that are interested in PokeSpe already.

July 16th, 2008, 07:17 AM
I've Quick Replied a number of replies that I found unfair so please forgive the block of quotes...

Wow, somebody's a little paranoid.

Honest to God, Maxim, do you think that I wanted this to happen?

This isn't the end of the world. Like people mentioned, there are alternative ways to reading the scans from now on. If this whole entire thing is my fault, and I do doubt that I'm responsible for everything, then I apologize. I was just trying to help out a few people, but I forgot how uptight Serebii is. But I don't think that it's appropriate to pin the blame on only one or two people.

That's all Mileyangel's fault! She mentioned on SerebiiForums that we scan Pokemon Mangas. Merrick noticed that and reported us. I hope he does a DBCOYOV.

While I can forgive Mileyangel, there's no doubt it is HER who revealed our secret world to inappriorate people.

Thanks to the two, there will never be any more scans on PokeCommunity.

Oh wow... not surprised that good ol' Serebii is behind this.

The thing here is that it only prohibits links to direct download sites. Since photobucket is a image hosting site and not a download site, it's still possible to post the scans on photobucket. So yeah, hopefully the scanning effort will still continue.

......does Serebii have some sort of control over things?

i've been wondering that my self what does seribii have to do with anything

You know, Merrick is sort of a "Sun King".

He thinks he shines like sun and is above everyone.

When {someone} mentioned us doing scans on the PokeCommunity, Merrick's brainwashed members started to yell "No! They Shouldn't! It's illegal! Our Lord will punish you!" And the "Lord" spotted it, and raided into PokeCommunity.

It's especially annoying considering that Merrick has all game ROMs on his computer (just look at his screenshots) and probably also manga scans from Coronis. He is NOTHING like a sun, in fact.

BAH! ignore this person then , he has no right to tells us that these are wrong. Plus you think the people who run PC would be angry for him trying to control them.

Plus that (someone) is like tons of people on seribii there were links every where to this site when i went there to investigate and try to understand.

So...in other words, Merrick's a hypocrite.

basicaly he a is hypocrite and i dont know why people bother following him. i say PC should say STFU to Merrick

hmm never heard of this Merrick dude, prolly becuz I'm not on serebii forums. Can someone explain to me why it is worng to scan pokemon manga yet you see some of the most popular manga being scanned everyday on onemanga and such.

Joe Merrick = Serebii's real name.

So, I think you've heard about him after all.

Why was this such a big deal to him, anyway?

I dunno if I would assume that Serebii has Coronis' scans; does Coronis even have physical scans anyway? That's a HUGE amount of work, so there's no way sie could have taken books and scanned them in; the alternative is that sie uses existing scans from the nets, but I certainly couldn't find Japanese scans anywhere.

I had nothing to with this. Nothing at all. I dont care if you have all the scans possible or if you have only one. It was a coincidence and it is really not fair for you to jump on me about this

If you think logically...if I did want you lot not to have scans, I would have done it while the Serebii.net manga section was in full-force and not after. Doing such a thing however, is not in-line with how I work. I wouldn't get a site shut down or anything of the sort, that sort of rumour is just perpetuated by those who do not like me. I would never do anything so underhanded.

You lot here have a really warped view of me and that is sad.

I'm not omnipresent on my forums and don't check the posts so how would I have seen Mileyangel's post or anything such as that.

Thanks for gravedigging. The Merrick-hate has already fallen here, but it will rise again now.

I don't believe in a single word from you. Maybe you didn't have anything to do with this case but when it comes to legal things, you are the biggest hypocrite on the earth.

Just leave us alone and let us make our scanning projects successful, as it is none of your bussiness.

Ah, before you leave. Could you ask Coronis whether or not he can sell his Manga Collection?

Oh and no Coronis' manga collection is not for sale, I can tell you that right now.

Its a TOS requirement from both our host and the Data Center that they get their servers from, as well as a normal, previously stated PC policy. (Read the rules.)

It's not an issue of hate, it's just obvious common sense. The clamping down on Pokemon Manga on this forum would mean that anyone with half a brain would refrain from blatantly posting links to illegal scans.

If you already knew about the site that has all the manga, then why did you make a fuss in the first place!?

I just wanna say... If everyone loves the manga so much, why don't you buy it? This way the writers get credit for their work, and perhaps the editors will see that there is actually a lot of interest in the English translation. I know it's pretty expensive, but it's totally worth the money. And it isn't illegal, so it won't be deleted - you can have it with you forever ^^
But anywayz it's great to see that so many people love the manga :D

Yeah, well, I also want to say that to them, but because I am realistic, and I know what's what, despite living in the Philippines... I know that people in the US usually have expensive stuff... lmao I don't know much much a manga book costs there, but one volume of Pokemon Adventures in here costs around $US 6.13 something (P270, if the US Dollar value gets higher, it might even go down to $ 4, So wtf @ Grimsg selling it for US$9.50) and Viz are a bunch of profit oriented jerks, hence why they won't want to work on something that doesn't profit them. =P

Plus importing costs so much, especially for someone who doesn't have access to a credit card, especially if you're going to buy only one book. That's why people stick to scans until the real thing starts selling in their country.

Lawl, I want the manga for AzuDai but we don't have it here... so I'm like, in the same situation as they are. XD

*sigh* I WOULD buy the manga if it was available in the US and I had a credit card.

Because not all of us can buy it. Its not just an issue of the money, but for a lot of us it just isn't available. I live in England and I don't think I've ever seen any manga, let alone pokespecial sold here

I know it isn't in stores, but you can buy it online. You can find the English volumes on eBay and pay with Paypal. I've bought volumes 1-27 that way, and it's great :D

EDIT: and you don't need creditcard for that, as some seem to think. Very convenient.

^ I noticed that too. Luckily I've already read all the available ones, but I had them all saved on my computer till yesterday, literally an hour after I'd deleted them all I noticed the site was down, so annoyed with myself! >_< Has anyone contacted the guy hosting them?

Uh, considering what kind of site mangafox is, I think they could care less about stuff like people being whiny on the internet.

If you don't need a credit card, how do you pay the money then?
