    Qidian novels on Volarenovels:

    Release that Witch
    The Nine Cauldrons
    Star Rank Hunter
    Paradise of Demons and Gods
    History’s Strongest Senior Brother
    Reign of the Hunters

    Qidian novels on Gravitytales:

    Ze Tian Ji
    Demon’s Diary
    King of Gods
    Chaotic Lightning Cultivation

    Qidian novels on Radiant:

    Lord Xue Ying
    Battle Frenzy
    Tempest of the Stellar War
    Magic Chef of Ice and Fire

    I see 4 ways on how this will play out

    1) Some translators will drop Qidian novels to translate other novels.
    Example of this: The Great Demon King, Cultivation Chat Group dropped. I believe translators on Volarenovels will now focus on translating novels that Volarenovels have authorizations for.

    2) Some translators will continue to translate it without authorization and wait until Qidian start sending cease and desist letters.

    3) Some translators will enter into partnership/Co-hosting on 2 different websites.
    Example of this: Swallowed Star, The King's Avatar

    4) Some translators will join Qidian and bring their novels over.
    Example of this: the several translators who brought their novels over to Qidian. If I remember correctly, they get $35-40 per chapter.




    p.s. What is your everybody opinion on Ren's statement about infringement?

    Here's what Ren (rwxwuxiaworld) wrote:

    I heard that Wuxiaworld might be in talk with Korean publishers for the authorizations of the Korean novels due to this issue.

    Um. Are we really going to discuss this again?

    As long as its free, everything's okay. If QI put up a pay wall, which isn't happening yet btw, then just drop it or go mtl (even if it'll melt your brain)

    If Qidian are they annoying, just sell them the chapters and start a new project.

    This seems to more of a thread for farming Nuffies rather than discuss the issue. My view on this matter is:

    Let the translators decide what they want to do. No use speculating about the scenarios. Besides, These types of posts have been filling up all the forums ever since the original stupid post by Qidian. Therefore I request people to stop these posts for the time being and patiently wait for a month or two and see how everything pans out.

    Ren's statement is correct, except it doesn't matter since it doesn't apply to anyone. Putting it on a website counts as publishing it...

    *looks at join date* Hmm... can't help it, too many new accounts these days. :p

    You do realize that by rounding them all up like this, you are setting up a hit list for Qidian? That this might pressure some translators to drop their novels earlier? I suppose if your goal was to make them stop translating, this would work admirably well. And you're also ignoring all the lady novels we dropped. Girls are important too. :cry:

    It's normal for fans translation to voluntary drop a series once an international publisher have licences for the series.

    Qidian... their create a new publisher company for extending to international market. Does this means that all fans translation should voluntary drop their novel? Nope. QI want to work with existing community. This means they have no problem with existing
    community and intend to join the community instead. Win-win for everybody.

    Everything changed when QI attacked.

    QI did give permission in their latest announcement. It just the
    announcement also have contradicting messages. At the end, it up to QI and translator to decide the fate of the series.

    Pretty sure that would be happening regardless of the Qidian situation to be honest, might just be happening sooner now than it'd otherwise would have.

    What about translation websites that don't profit from ads money and donations like Dreams of Jianghu, is it still copyrights infringement?

    I think volarenovel already drop it.
    They only give summary on the novel though.

    If you think a thread deserves to be locked, you can always click the report button and provide a valid reasoning for it.

    If you feel like something has been unlocked (or locked) and it shouldn't have, you can always PM a moderator for clarification.
