    Not dropping, but I don't have much time to work on it so I wouldn't mind if someone tried to pick it up. I want to read it too...

    FAQs won't stop them from asking the questions anyway, but it's convenient to have a thread to link to them

    It's hard for me to find your serious threads if you use more than 1 tag... >.>

    Use Parth Rant instead of this! >.<

    Oh, and thanks for the FAQ! ^^)/

    What about the translator announcing that they're going to be slow but will be posting up their translations?
    I've had people "poach" my work because I was inactive for almost 2 months even when I said I'll try to get my translation up ASAP after my busy phase. Is there any way for us to add some sort of notification on NU so potential translators know if the project still has an active albeit slow translator?

    I have a question regarding novel covers.
    Am I allowed to submit a fanmade cover for the web novel I'm translating, given that since it's from syosetsu there won't ever be an official one?

    I think it's okay to do that in this subforum :3c but I'm just a member, who knows! There's not a rule that specifies you can't make an, uh... adoption thread, though.

    Hahaha. That's so true. That's why I don't like to read xianxia anymore. After you read one, you're basically read all of them.

    Question, how do we know if we are still considered an "active translator"? Is there a way to check? (Like maybe there's a title or something on profiles?)

    The policy basically states it
    https://www.novelupdates.com/nu-policy/
    I mean you would know of you fill the requirements.
    The staff check manually so not really

    Question:
    If I basicly got permission from earlier translators to start translating, but i only had time to post 1 chapter, gone for 2-3 weeks, and somebody started translating it and has already uploaded 2 chapters. Who would be the active translator in this? (The 2 chapters in 30 days is confusing me):notlikeblob:

    And if I still am, how do i report it?
    Asking for a friend in our team.

    Thank you :blobsmilehappy:

    The Female General’s Little Childhood Sweetheart?
    if that novel, none of the translators listed there now is Active Translator. not enough chapters.
    otherwise, i need to know which novel to give a concrete answer.

    Yes, yes it is.
    We got permission, but something happened that made the translator unable to update for a couple of weeks.
