    Google cached at least some of your translations. Check this out.

    Wattpad does not allow highlighting copying text and neither does the cached version, but there's probably a workaround. If not, worst case you have to type it over.

    The text itself can be "copied" in HTML form by pressing F12 (in Firefox) and viewing the source of the page. There's HTML in between everywhere, but it's something.

    There might be a plugin allowing you to select the text, or it might be possible through editing the CSS in that window that opens with F12. The reason text cannot be selected is probably because of "user-select: none" applied to a part of the page. If so, removing it allows you to copy directly from the cached site page.

    That must've been incredibly frustrating. :blob_patpat:

    But I suppose many of your readers must've been aware of NU's existence, so as long as you replace the defunct links on your novel's NU page with the ones to your new website after re-upload, you should get a (hopefully) significant portion of your readers back. :blobsmilehappy:

    Oh, I do have a backup of all of my translations, thankfully. At least that still keeps me motivated to keep translating.

    But thanks for the help!

    Yeah, I'm actually planning to do that soon although it will take a while. Hopefully it works.

    I love this translation so much, I was waiting for 31-35 to stack up so I could binge read because one every few days wasn’t enough. So sad! I’m glad that you are coming back strong on a new site. <3 thank you for this translation. I’ll watch this thread so I can see if a link is updated.

    Oh no, I can understand your frustration. Wattpad is a hell hole tbh. Translators should avoid it like the plague but it's okay, at least you're free of worry about your translations being taken down! You can restart on Wordpress, I'm pretty sure a lot of followers will be able to find your translations again.

    I followed your novel regularly and will be waiting for the updates. Thank you <3

    Cheer up! :blobangel:

    Wattpad has never said they are for posting translations did they? It's for posting original novels.

    Also, the title is a bit deceptive, it says its "your novel", but it isn't "yours" if you didn't write it.

    PS Not trying to be mean, thanks for all your work translating

    Yes, well, I was new to translations and wasn't aware. Of course, I'm not blaming Wattpad but just feeling a little upset because there's no way to contact my followers.

    Oh and thanks, I'll change the title.

    I'm sorry that happened. I feel like there should be a post or something about that. I don't actually read any novels that use wattpad. I've had to many novels that I was reading get deleted and then the translator dropped them. It sounds like your going to keep translating, that's good. Good luck.

    Just saying, you can post translations on scribblehub, also owned by Tony. Just putting some cross marketing there

    My condolences, this also happens with free Wordpress blogs.
    This is why it is best to own your own website
