    Wow, this is so fucking unprofessional @Qidian. The problem is happening bw your two platform, why bring it to public? And at the same time discredited WW? Is it necessary?

    I know that @Qidian platform is monopolizing webnovel in China. But, this is international market, and you can't force other to do what you want and selfishly threaten other.

    I could make some summary, just read it with MTL, probably only understand around 60 - 70 % of it, but it goes well so far

    Seriously ? I come here after reading announcement from WW.. and @Qidian is completely a dick.. horrible site,horrible TL quality *cough *cough novel saga *cough , and horrible owner... Don't they know that translator mood decide everything ? even yen press don't lie and always straight.. ( it's annoying, though).. I don't think theres a TLs would pick Qidian novel anymore.. and if they are, then they won't bother with fucking license thing you hold @Qidian !!!

    You are correct. Give "PERMISSION" to "TRANSLATE".

    The orginal print of the story still belongs to qidian. But the translated version? They already give the permision to ww.

    And if there is no such text as "all work of translation of ww belongs to qidian THAT ARE PERMITTED, in this context the afromentioned 20 novel" the translator have the right of it.

    You don't make the content. The authors do. You are just another platform just like WW. How many platforms have we seen fall? You are not the first nor will you be the last.

    They have email exchange as proof, I believe those should be acceptable in court.

    You are right on one thing tho. If you take out WW the market will be yours. But you add pay wall and the market leaves mark my words

    Very unprofessional, Qidian. This should have been handled in private with Wuxiaworld. There was no need to make public threats and accusations.

    Also, your attempt to steal and bribe translators in order to monopolize the market here is very disappointing.

    In this case it's already lost cause. He just want to flaunt and not giving exact word of apreciation of this matter. Pro or contra.

    Just drop his word down.

    I didn't like it when I had to boycott Xianxia World.

    Now you are forcing me to boycott you.

    Planning on a paywall eh? Way to be honest about your intentions when you said before there wouldn't be one.

    Accusing WW of poaching when it is painfully obvious that they haven't been doing that. Not above lying to push your narrative eh?

    Not against destroying contracts made with WW and reneging on your agreements with them eh? We were doing fine without you and and will continue to do so.

    With how dishonest you are being I can see you guys changing your terms for translators pretty quickly too. They got good benefits for going under your wing but that won't last since your company is monopolistic and greedy as hell. You don't mind screwing over anyone and everyone.

    Until the day that you have a monopoly on the market I won't read from your site again.
    Your dishonest business practice and duplicity has been brought to the surface and I refuse to support that.
    I hated Xianxia World and since they are gone I now have room to hate Qidian International.

    You don't come from over seas and shit on the fans frim different countries and the banner (WW) that they flock to.
