    Define the minimum value for it to be considered rip-off, please.

    None of them. It's just bonus chapters. If you don't think the translator deserves money due to their effort thus far, don't donate. No one has to pay, so it's hard to be a ripoff.

    I don't even know why people would want to donate that much to read such mediocre novels. Repetitive plots and the author always used 5 to 10 chapters to describe about useless stuffs and the minor characters' reactions.

    If
    If you properly read, that 200$ for a month's worth of 1 extra chapter per week. So divide that by 4.33

    Even if a translator changed his price to 1million per chapter, it wouldn't be a rip-off. Why? Because it's all voluntary, it's not even a product but a charity event. I could only see problems with this if the translators didn't inform their readers of the high prices.
