    As long as they are happy, then I will support his decision. That being said, how dare he, we were just at a fight scene with a sword saint who only knew slash :blobsalt::blobsalt::blobsalt:

    While I did not read the Novel, its sad in general, even if you look through the reviews on Novelupdates most People only seem to know either 5 Stars or 1, there is something in between, and you should use that.
    Anyway with the Translator good luck and I will miss him.

    seems like an interesting novel, however I'm not sure if I should be happy knowing it or sad that it's pointless since it doesn't have a translator anymore... :hmm:

    p.s. also, while I haven't seen the comment, I would just like to mention that 'venting' is fairly common. Complaining about MC etc probably isn't directed to the TL.

    I completely understand. It's hard when you have no comments, let alone when they are negative. Even more so, if you're actually the author.

    I can't tell you how many times just 1 bad comment made me go MIA for a month. And it doesn't have to be 'that' bad. Just nonsensical, as if all your work is misunderstood.

    And can you imagine a translator, someone who does not even own the story? Why would they continue it? They can just read the raws for enjoyment. Why give anything to a community that doesn't like it themselves? And if the TL-er 'really' likes that extra bit of revenue from ads or donations, only to find out the readers don't like it, do you think they'll go on?

    When a novel first starts out, the amount of readers is 0. Every chapter released, the # of followers increase. But if you release 1 chapter, and the first thing you see is Rating: 1, you'll of course feel terrible, and just move on.

    ====

    I'll say this. There are a lot of casual translators out there. But from what I've seen, a lot become dedicated or drop depending on the readers, IRL or not.

    It was a really good novel so far. I liked it, and I don't even read from that site. Now that it's gone, I'm not sure I will. We'll see.

    I know the feeling of being upset when someone trolls you... and all you are doing is fan translations for fun. :censored:

    To the translator

    are you seriously salty that people rate the novel 1/5 on novelupdates? People are free to review novels however they like, and trying to blame reviews for forcing you to quit is poor practice. Its good that your quitting if you don't like translating, or feel toxic about the fact that people are allowed to discuss the bad parts of novels you translate.

    And for those who don't understand, half his rant was raging over the fact that there are "negative" reviews on novelupdates. While specifically referencing the only negative review for "the world after the fall".
