We are no longer using media fire

       I am eliminating media fire because every week someone post the same crap about our media fire links not working, that is a reason I post alternative download links or havent people noticed Df and Bitshare and as well have published public instructions in how to deal with media fire.  Since people neither know how to read a simple instructions or have the patience to wait 60 seconds to download from an alternative I am no longer dealing with Media fire.  People probably saying but I can only download from media fire, all I can say to that is you have to learn to download from an alternative download link because I am tired of answering the same question week after week about media fire. We would offer DDL but for that we need to maintain a server but did I also mention no one donates barely and I never ask for donations and I don't expect them, we get donations enough to buy the occasional bandwidth from media fire most of everything comes out of my pocket. We are thankful to the occasional person who feels like sending us a donation because it helps with cost of raws, bandwidth and so forth. I rather use money donated to buy raws for series that we publish because it pays for the authors work, I don't like using public raws which were not paid for because no money is given to author I rather pay for raws and support their works.
               I pay over 60 dollars a month to maintain a media fire account out of my pocket and the occasional donation we receive and as well spend over can I say 200 plus dollars in raws for various series in this group and in other groups. I view it like this and I am being honest, we offer you a free product done through our combined efforts to translate and edit, whatever download options we give you just accept those download options as is and stop complaining to me that you have to wait 60 seconds, wow 60 seconds come on really, you can't bitch about download options when you neither donate or offer an alternative to media fire that people dont bitch about. How much I would love to offer DDL but no one donates and I dont ask for donations or expect donations because this is a free service, my logic is if someone likes the series or the work show appreciation, its not like we get any of the money to keep its go towards cost I buy my magazines and pay for shipping cost I dont use public raws, I pay for my media fire, I enjoy how people appreciate our releases and love us for them and I am sorry I can't offer anymore download options for our releases please accept Deposit files and Bit Share but when no one donates the only options available are the free options, am I wrong.
             So please accept that I will no longer offer media fire because of two simple answers, I am tired of answering the same question about why link is dead and having to explain what is clearly written on right hand side and the second answer being please accept the alternative download options because they are free and we do not have any money to pay for expensive DDL I rather use money to buy raws for new series, since no one donates, and we don't expect anyone to donate. SO please accept deposit file and bitshare as your alterntative download options, as of today I am done with Media fire because all people do is complain its better to eliminate it am I wrong. Have a good day because I have important stuff to deal with as in editing releases like nyatto and tokage no ou and searching for our missing team member who I am worried about. I may sound like an asshole I am sorry and please accept alternate download options.

  1. I understand, it is really annoying that people can't read... MF was better, and some of us did actually read the instructions, but I did not even realize it costed so much. Thanks for explaining.

    1. I would love to maintain media fire because I dont want to prevent anyone from downloading our releases but I get so many emails and comments weekly with the same problems, I think your link is dead or your link dont work, I really don't know what to do at this point, even when I write it out and explain how to use link , there are still so many people who refuse to read instructions, I get bombed with emails weekly about the MF links, I have no clue what to do except eliminate it, I hate that my email box fills up with MF complaints

    2. Sam here is an example

      There are some scanlation teams that get over 300 dollars in donations monthly and can afford a server, I wont mention names but they barely release 3 releases a month, how many releases do we do monthly on the average more than 8, do you know what we get barely 15 dollars sometime ZERO, and I appreciate those people who even give us that much. So do you see their is a drastic difference, we do alot of releases and get no donations while other teams do 3 and get over 300 in donations. I cant complain I love our releases but when we get no donations or little all we can do is offer free alternatives

    3. I have even seen scanlation teams get over 180 in donations according to their donations bars and barely push out one release

    4. I know what you're talking about... Once I get out of college I should be able to get a job and then hopefully will be able to donate, but for right now my budget is tight. Thanks for your releases, hopefully some day you'll see some money from me.

    5. Sam we love our fans especially fans like you we dont care about the donations, all we care about is whether or not you like the releases, that all we care about, we do this for the love of manga, nothing more nothing less, and appreciate you as a fan, so dont take anything in my post personal its aimed at those who complain about MF, I appreciate everyone who enjoys our releases thats all i care about as an editor, whether we put a smile on your face after the release

  2. Its you're a new team
    i bet not so many people have hear about your group
    these group who receive donations are old
    groups that are past their golden days
    thought they still receive attention
    about the mediafire links i think someone was doing it on purpose, a troll maybe
    don't break your head over it if you can't fix it then throw it!

    1. When it comes to us being flagged as a scanlation group on media fire, it was most 100 percent someone trolled us and notified mediafire on purpose, because my media fire work on all my other blogs with no issue, except this blog, i wonder why because someone notifed media fire on us and screwed the pooch now all we can do is tell people to right click and copy and paste post to address bar, so that the forward from deus does not stop MF from downloading, when people copy and paste to address bar, it eliminate the deus ex scan forward, but apparently that is difficult for some people as well, So I dont know what to do if people dont want to right click and copy and past the link

    2. I understand as a group we are still new, but when I see people donating 300 dollars for a group that releases maybe 2 releases a month, I feel bad for those people who donate so much for so little return

  3. Well that's too bad about the annoyance issue, but I would make the same move as well, if I had to put up with that. I don't mind DF, 60 seconds is nothing in the course of a day.

    I should figure out how to be something other than anonymous since I seem to be replying a lot these days...

    Well I appreciate the great work you all do, even if my favorite manga here is delayed until we confirm Fanceli's safety. I hear all of New Jersey's power is expected to be returned tonight, but I don't know if New York or some of the other hit areas will be revived as well. Such a mean storm...

    1. The worst thing in jersey and ny we keep getting these back to back storms that are not even allowing us to recover properly, its like you get power back up to get it knocked down again.

    2. We miss fanceli we only wish we knew what occurred, is she in trouble, did she forget to pay her internet, we dont know and we send emails almost daily asking if she is ok and we get no response, so we are worried.

      Delete
  4. Ahh, so bad about MF since it was less annoying than most other download services...

    Also, I am really losing hope with Fenceli. I think she is alright, but I don't know why she haven't been in contact with you guys :(

    1. Without fanceli it will be difficult to continue series, Im telling you Bokura no kiseki is a series that requires a translator that can focus only on Bokura no kiseki, its so dialogue heavy you know what I mean. The series will get done even if I have to recruit another translator, but I rather not because changing translators can change a direction of a series not much, because gott our other translator will always TLC the series, but I rather not replace fanceli because she is like a family member of this teams, But I am stuck with the realization she may not return for whatever reason she chooses to not respond to our emails, maybe she got overwhelmed, burned out or tired, but she never said anything to us, last time we spoke to her she was half way done with chapter 15 maybe even more than that, so from the time of that email till now she has not contacted us. Dont get me wrong the series will get done, I personally rather not change translators because I still have faith in fanceli.

    2. When it comes to MF, Im so tired of people complaining about the MF link, there is nothing I can do but I cant keep filtering emails day and night of people complaining about the same issue. I put instructions up and no one reads, so what am I to do except not post MF links at all, its like someone saying the same thing over and over again eventually you get tired of hearing it, apparently people dont like to read instructions and choose to complain, and other dont like waiting 60 seconds but at the end of the day im paying so much for bandwidth on media fire, the links work just not when its forwarded from my blog they get shut down. Thats why right click and copy to address bar works, because its not being forwarded. I think people have not realized that the industry is cracking down on file sharing and its getting harder to find a service that doesnt delete your files or shut down completly. Than I get emails about why dont I get DDL, because we get no donations, you know how many donations total we have recieved since the start of deus ex scans, total 40 dollars in all the months since we first started, that doesnt pay for any server bandwith or even pay hosting cost. I never request donations because I try to keep cost down for the fans, i rather focus on quality releases than donation drives. But it does annoy me we release so much and recieve so little but get ten times the complaints in reference to our links for download. Here is math we do 10 chapters a month we get zero to 5 dollars in donations on rare occassion the 15 to 20, remember we have only gotten 40 total since site started. While other groups who barely manage to release 2 to 3 releases are getting monthly 300 dollars a month more than enough to maintain those massive servers. I get annoyed when I do this math because I want to offer DDL for all of you, but I cant keep paying out of pocket, I buy raws and spend on media fire all that cost money, I cant keep paying for more and getting nothing back in return, you know.

    3. Not to be a pain, but you could always add a filter to your email that every mail that says Media Fire gets deleted, or at least put on the trash can. :)

      Delete
    4. I can do that than people will get creative and start sending emails without mentioning MF directly or start spamming comments saying why am I censoring. Fans get vengeful when you dont allow them to speak, plus I rather not filter because if I do get an important email,I dont want it to be filtered by mistake, but ty for the idea but its not feasible because regardless if I keep MF I will get 1000 people sending me link is broken and 1000 other who refuse to read instructions on the right hand side, or 1000 others who will say alternate downloads dont work for them, which is BS honestly,if mf work, all work its an issue they dont want to wait 60 seconds. But people don't realize they dont wait 60 seconds with MF because I pay for it, I cant pay for any more services out of my pocket for something you guys are getting for free, if no one donates in which I wouldnt expect people to donate but than no one can complain what download methods I use because I pay on average over 60 dollars a month for MF, basically file sharing and bandwidth and over 200 dollars in raws per month per magazine on any given month. I cant pay for anything else, its as a service MF will be removed because of overall complaints from the people who cant read the right hand side instructions but also we have no money coming in so its not a proper investment for Deus ex scans if media fire has me flagged, it makes sense if I am flagged its better to just remove it and try to find alternative means to service the same issue. I get less headache from answering email, I rather focus on editing and find fanceli, than answering why is link broke 1000 times over

    5. I love all the fans and this is not me being mean, I love editing and love doing releases and I love it when fans are happy. I just have no patience for 1000 emails a week pointing out your link broke, why no work, instead of them reading right hand side. Tell me this to all fans would you rather I focus on editing new releases and new stuff or spend days at a time answering complaints about MF.

    6. People may not believe me but my email box in the last few month has gotten full twice, and I lose important emails because I filtering the junk complaints about MF and deleting and eventually to many emails get lost

    1. Your telling me once your flagged its hell, funny thing for other sites i use the same media fire acct and i have no issues, only on this site. I might consider building a home server but I have to ask my friend in terms of cost monthly to maintain it, he is an IT guy with an IT hosting company. I am thinking if I build my own home server the most I would have to pay for is hosting and the actual bandwidth, that may allow me to offer DDL, but at the end of the day it comes down to cost, and i honestly think we are not that big yet to offer DDL and actually maintain it.

  6. Oh.... well its your decision to make .... and I will gladly accept and respect anything you will decide on .......

  7. Aww I thought I had a good idea with using http://anonym.to?http://address, but I just tried it and it's blocked too =(
    I'll look to see if I can find something else like this for you, might be hard to find something not blocked though.

    1. Thank you for trying to help me fix the issue, its a pain isnt it, once your flagged forwarding link from blog always get blocked the only trick i know is the right click and copy and past to address bar, which seems to be the only way for mf to work

      Delete
  8. I think that decision is right and wise, its high time you guys stop torturing yourself with the same problem every single time. And i miss bokura no kiseki, i super miss you now fancelli. Its depressing. I cant almost stand it. Not having another chapter to look forward every saturday... Please come back. T_T
