This moving is very suspicious 1 novel move other following something amiss
no, only otter and turtle moved korean novels to WuxiaWorld
There has already been enough evidence to state that there was an internal change on Gravity's side which has affected this..
This thread should be merged with the other big thread @Parth37955 @Shio
Maybe ww will be a transit point before moving to qidian international.
hahahahaha...no. WW>>>Qidian International. literally any group would be better than QI
Yeah i know but qidian international is the only official site and they hold all the copyrights for qidian novels.
not really. it's the main company that holds the copyrights. Qidian International is just a branch-off. Sure they get the copyrights for "free", but they do not hold all the copyrights.
There's no reason to join unless you must. it's far easier to just drop the novel imo, if you can't buy the copyright.
will WW novels ever be moved to QI? I hope not..
another question, will WW host korean novel indefinitely or temporarily only?
No one but Ren from WuxiaWorld will be able to answer that first question... but seeing as they have a contract for 10 years to translate 20 novels, I would say any kind of movement won't happen for at least the next 10 years.
However Wuxiaworld hosting KR novels is permanent. Unless translators decide to move elsewhere.
i want to tag ren, but don't dare.. do you dare? @ rwxwuxiaworld...
btw, thanks for ur ans...
No, it's not.
Ya see your kinda wrong with the whole "selling out" thing. TL'ing by fans originally started on forum boards and was done by fans for fans for free. Then as more and more people showed interest in reading novels, fans started asking if they could donate money to help speed up with translations/site costs. That then lead to "extra" chapters for donations, which then turned to patreon further down the road. This all started from fans wanting to help rather than an immediate demand for profit.
Also your first point means nothing because without becoming a business, Qidan and other companies pull a JP publisher and cease and desist every site that has translations. Then you'll end up with the current state of Baka-Tsuki where they have hardly any novel translations ongoing and most TLers jumped ship. So in the the "purist" version is no one gets to read because DMCA/C&D. Licensing and becoming a business is the safest way to continue translations without getting DMCA'd, thus the business route is the safest for Tlers, readers, and copyright holders.
tfw you learn that GGP owns everything on his site, cause well, it's his
