    You miss so much drama.
    Its about personal reason and check GT site about new regulations/license or something like that

    It's not that wuxiaworld took their translators/novels. They left of their own choice

    Stop trying to spark even more controversy.
    You are making the situation worse by spreading lies.

    Turtle said GT in getting an overhaul.. But she didnt like the overhaul so she left.. Although she did mentioned something good gonna happen at GT.. CKtalon mentioned about license and promised with Cocooned Cow, he feel WW is the easier way to get CR with Qidian so he joined WW. Nothing mentioned by other translator

    There's a rumor that the reason so many translators have left was because of the new "Terms of Use" on Gravity Tales. Which basically state that whatever is put on their website is own by them and they can do whatever they want with it. And this has scared the translators away. Anyways, this was something some people have been pointed out on GT comments section.

    As for me, when I read the new "Terms of Use", I thought it was the same one as Facebook and only pertain to comments, pictures and whatever else people post on the comment section or on their forum. I didn't think it was relevant to the translation hosted.

    This rumour has spread but honestly, it isn't even about that. I doubt any of the translators even read the terms of use, I certainly didn't.

    /shrug/ ok...let's get some stuff straight here:
    1. Neither Wuxiaworld nor Volare Translations reached out to translators to snipe them. Translators sought them out.
    2. As repeated stated by multiple translators, the reasons for leaving were largely personal as well as professional.
      • Doubtlessly, licenses had some influence on the decision to move, however the suddenness of the departures as well the amount of people leaving indicates that the reason is not solely due to this.
      • As Rainbow Turtle alluded to in her departure post, she left due to internal changes in Gravity.
    3. Some people whine and complain about how translators are being vague...sigh, that's how decent people act towards their employers. No party involved is dumb enough to try to smear another's reputation. You want hard cold reasons? You most certainly aren't getting any. This was the choice of the translators. Who are we to invade their privacy?
    4. Random conjectures do little to prove, verify, or inform. Before making said conjectures, consider the effect it could have. Personally, I don't think any of the parties involved care about random people on the internet questioning their character, but it's an eyesore to me. <==just a personal opinion of mine. Feel free to be eyesores if that's what rocks your boat. Censoring you guys is not really worth it.
    5. I saw a good post on reddit (surprising, I know) about a good post on NUF (even more surprising) about how no one really cared when smaller groups got absorbed by bigger ones. In my...somewhat cynical point of view, I don't really think most people care about what's going on. This is not like the Xianxiaworld fiasco, where novels had nowhere to go and went "missing" for a while. This is just a shifting of hosts. Now if you have a personal attachment to the Gravitytales site, I can see why you would be worried. However...these are the same translators. Only the host has changed. If you're concerned about the future of the community,
      Qidian International is the one to look out for.
      • *cough* this is just an extra thing. >_> I can say, with 100% guarantee that Ren of Wuxiaworld, is not conspiring with Qidian to take over the world. So stop freaking out like headless chickens.
    If my reassurances aren't enough:
    http://gravitytales.com/post/breakers/leaving-gravity-tales
    http://gravitytales.com/post/the-grandmaster-strategist/the-grandmaster-strategist-announcement
    both of these posts confirm that no poaching was involved.

    We someone will address this but, all of this was caused by an internal change which has caused a chain of events which has lead to the now rapidly depleting Gravity Tales.

    Pretty much confirmed from the farewell posts.
