As you all know, working with various files over the internet can be a messy business (see Clinton's emails). While this isn't a notice for a security breach or anything, this is going to be a change in the way we do our work around here. Because of a recent nuking of a few of our file hosting accounts on the grounds of copyright infringement (because of DMCA and all that good stuff), we will now only provide raws for all the projects we do via our private Slack group.
While this may look like a pain in the butt, it also provides us with an opportunity to really get together and work on projects as one unified group rather than various splintered factions. Working together as a single group should help with both the quality of the translations and artwork that we provide to the Internet, rather than the large spread of quality we have been seeing in the past few months.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please comment below. If you wish to join the Slack group, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll set you up with access and answer any questions you may have. As of this post, any and all links to raws will be deleted and replaced with a redirect to this post. Series that deal with webraws might not be affected by this decision, but main series and anything that our editor-in-chief Swiss momo provides will be. If you are not a part of /ak/ scans but wish to access our raws for other-than-English translations, please contact me at the above email and we’ll see what we can do for you.
Thank you for reading this, and hopefully this works out to our benefit.
And as an added notice, we will be going through all links to check for link rot (links that dead, redirected, 404'd, etc).
