Why have you come to this page? I don’t think anyone will read it… but go ahead~
Welcome to the FAQs that nobody seems to read, but I am writing it anyway in case someone might ask me~ Feel free to drop a comment below in case you want to add any question.
1. Why are you putting ads and why would you warn the ones using Adblocks to whitelist this site?
This site doesn’t run for free. To maintain a site, you have to pay for domain registration and web hosting service. The reason I chose to use a site instead of a free wordpress blog is because I can have more customization options in my own site, plus plug-ins! They helped a lot!
TLDR: The ads revenue will be used for the purpose of maintaining this site~☆
2. Who are working for the projects here?
Pretty sure I am all alone here~
3. Why do I see “Review” page? Can I request a review?
Because I want to share my love about something that I reviewed to the world~ Or… rant… It can be anything from a manga, novel, game, or anything else. You can ask my opinion about something, and if I have completed the series, I’ll consider writing a review of it if you ask.
4. Is there any Discord server for this site?
There is! <– feel free to join and hang out there~ It was created because of the website error and lost content case the other day. Hope you will enjoy your stay!
5. I found some typos or grammatical error!
DEAR GOD, please, please tell me so I can immediately correct it. I am not a native English speaker, so your help would be appreciated.
6. I want to personally contact you to say something that might be better off in private. Or I just want to be your friend, can I?
Sure, that’s what the Contact page is for. You can also drop your Discord ID there if you want me to reply in Discord. If you want to do a casual chat with me, I’m okay with that, too, but I apologize in advance for my slow response at times. I might be online in Discord or wherever you see me, but I can be preoccupied with IRL work or translation or writing. Or I fell asleep.
7. I have some suggestions for your site.
Go on and tell me! I’m open to any suggestion~
1. Why can’t you release update faster, like, every day?
Oh my god… Because I have life and it’s not like I’m doing this as my living/main job… So as much as I’d like to translate everyday, I’m sorry ><
2. Where are you? Will this series get dropped? When will you update?
Worry not, if I disappear within a period of time, that means I’m so preoccupied with my IRL stuffs. However, I usually would try to meet my promised schedule in the month (currently set to at least 2 releases a month if things are hectic or weekly release).
I can’t give you a set date on when I will update, but I usually try to meet my promised schedule. Also, I will announce it in advance if I am planning to drop any series.
3. Why are you now putting advanced chapter(s) access via Patreon/donation?
Because most of the translators are doing it–joke. I’m now trying to have some chapters in reserve, so they’re all I can offer to those who’re willing to donate or pledge on Patreon. That is a way for me to give my thanks to them! I also find it more reliable or stable rather than the old sponsored chapter system. This is by no means locking chapters behind Paywall… It’s just incentive for those who give more support.
4. What are you going to translate after this? How do you decide on which title to translate?
If you are stalking me in NUF, you will see that I would occasionally pop out and express my interest on a series. I decide on a title purely based on my interest.
…Well, I don’t think I’m going to add more titles for now.
5. Why won’t you just stick up with one title only?
Because I would risk myself of feeling bored and tired if I only have one title in my hands. Please understand that I have more than one interest and would love to cultivate my time for not just one of them.
6. Thanks for translating this series. This series has ended but I really enjoyed it, can I donate to show my thanks?
…Are you an angel? Nobody is preventing you from doing that, but you’d make me feel quite guilty as I can’t give you anything in exchange for your donation. If the series is ongoing, I can publish a sponsored chapter once the quota is met.
1. Are you going to drop the series, or will you properly finish it?
I am pretty sure I’m committed to properly finish my original series. However, I’d need your help to keep reading my series, to keep me going! As I have properly designed the main plot that the stories will take, I don’t really need to write it until the end if the only one who’s going to read it is me. It’s another thing if there’s an audience I can tell my story to~
2. How long are they gonna last?
There are two possibilities. They are gonna last until the plot is finished properly. Or… they will end when the last of the readers disappears (and I will cry ;__;).
3. I have seen your Original in another platform!
I also post my original series in other platforms to widen the reader base. Just check the pen name. I usually use my usual pen name to upload my stories. If you would like to support me in other platforms as well, then I’d be so happy. If you believe someone else is poaching my stories, please notify me.
4. What’s the difference between main series and side series?
How they are spelled. One is m-a-i-n, and the other is s-i-d-e… okay, don’t get mad at me! Well, basically I would post more updates for main series, and usually my schedule is fixed for the main series. For the side series, I will occasionally update it, but there is no fixed schedule.
5. Why are you setting up your Patreon page for Original?
Because I can do what I want with it–joke again! X”D
It serves as a nice motivation to keep me going and a nice way for me to sustain myself while I write. Writing and thinking of a story’s concept is pretty tiring and time consuming. Besides the motivation I get from your comments etc in my original series, Patreon is another way to ensure that I will keep on writing until the end, as without your support, I might have to eventually stop writing just to meet my daily life’s needs (which is the worst case scenario I hate to think about, as I genuinely enjoy writing!). It also ensures that I won’t go on a hiatus and that I will be giving you regular update (as I also need to give you advanced chapter as Patreon reward)!
6. Are you accepting donation via ko-fi and Paypal for Original?
Sure, what prevents you from doing that?
Please give a note in your donation or reach out to me if you’re donating and want access to the rewards in accordance to the Patreon pledge, we definitely can do that if you don’t want to use Patreon~
7. Why am I seeing password protected content?
That means, the chapters are not yet publicly available, but they are available for patrons according to their tiers ^^ Advanced chapters access is what I can offer to patrons in exchange of supporting me. So, please wait patiently for the schedule, as they will soon be publicly available!
