I've already posted one on sama a long time ago. This is the other one, which I just did.
You spend a whole year trying to be disciplined and doing everything you're supposed to but then you forget to translate some porn. This is from kitou sakeru and I meant to post it before comiket 92 (last summer), where he was going to release his Lucoa book, in order to raise awareness for this great artist in hopes maybe someone would see him and pick up and translate his Lucoa book.
Funnily enough, his Lucoa book got translated but no-one batted an eye to his other works.

You heard the man. He wants to make more boku girl doujins, so go buy this doujin in bulk to send him the message boku girl doujins = $$$.
It only took half a year. Better late and low quality than never.
I might delete these later on.
And since it is a sadpanda thread, here's the raw:https://exhentai.org/g/941460/e695aad946/
HOLY SHIT SUDDENLY SAMACONTENT
So did you do the typesetting and translating and everything on your own?
And yeah I remember you posting something about translating a doujin a few months ago in some other thread.
Yeah, I did. I'm confident enough in the translation but the "cleaning"/typesetting is a different story.
Yeah, that was me.
Anyway I saved it so I might upload it sometime since you said you're not.
Thanks a bunch for this man
The typesetting is great though, nothing to worry about.
Thanks for posting this I was wondering if you were going to finish this when you mentioned it in the blog thread ages ago
good job! It was very cute.
In case you're wondering, the page that I kept putting off translating was >>12366 because it felt so pointless and the writing was all messed up. Thinking about what font to use was enough to make me tired.>>12277
Hell yeah, I’ve fapped to this before. Nice to see it translated. If nobody uploads it to sadpanda, I will in a few days.
Oh, and nice work. It’s really well done.

Do you guys back up your favorites? I've started using HappyPanda and it's super convenient. I'm at just over 500 galleries now.
Am I retarded if I've never even heard of HappyPanda
Usually I keep my favorites on a .txt file with the URL and title, sometimes with a couple of tags to remind myself what it was about
I know there's a favorites function but I've never used it because I'm retarded or something

Raicow only seems to look good in fanart
Also she canon has inverted nipples
File: it's joke.png (342.16 KB, 780x744) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
I almost forgot: the translated name is "Getting raped by mommy Raikou: the book"
Raikou's design is sex distilled to its essence. The fact she is insane in her love only makes this hotter. Insane enough she turns non-incest into incest and then back into non-incest. Her changing between an overbearing mother figure and the use of the term "master" murks the waters even more. It was an instant favourite the moment I saw it in exhentai.
I may have gone overboard with the mommy talk and I decided to experiment a little with fonts since it's specially hard in this doujin to distinguish who is saying what without the near instant perception you get from glancing at their japanese speech patterns. Also different fonts according to the writing in the original raw (messy fonts for messy handwriting). Plus, I did a couple of cleaning and redrawing here and there too but I don't know how much it stands out. Plus, I don't play fate/GO so I may have gotten some lingo wrong. Tell me what you think!
As usual, I'll delete this after a while. Feel free to do as you must.
Why does the "your requests look automated" error show up at the worst possible times?
eh you don't play FGO? why not!
Go to the blog page in >>12664 for a nice extra.
There's other Raikou books I want to translate. C93 was a Raikou gold mine. Some artoria pendragon books too, but if I got it right there's people already working on those.
Yeah I hear that FGO doujins are outnumbering Touhou and boat sluts now.
We are truly living in the Fate age.
You don't want to open that can of worms…>>12672
I wonder for how long, though. Kancolle had the wind in its favour for a while but it's beginning to die down. Still, I don't see touhou ever recovering. Too many smartphone games, too much marketing, not enough fans to go around.
Bad experience with gatcha games ey? anyways Touhou is literally old news, I have a folder with hundreds of Touhou pictures that I haven't added to for like a whole year, It's just boring now really.
That only makes it better.
Good god, I need a Raikou in my life.

I don't, but I wish I did…
Aw man, why'd you delete the whole thing? I didn't save it because my PC was out for repairs for the last three weeks. Anyone else have it?
You've got a new slightly crazy lovey-dovey borderline reverse rape doujin now so it should do the trick.
Shit, but I'm a bigger fan of Boku Girl. Goddamnit, my PC fucked me over!
Post the last thing you fapped to, and judge each others taste. No bully though.
Mine was the Raikou doujin in this thread, the amount of "mommy" made me a bit uncomfortable but she's still pretty hot.
Was it the overuse of the word, or that fact that it alludes to incest? I'm weirded out by incest but for me the context is enough to detach it from that fetish, it's more yandere than anything.
What about the fonts and the redrawing? Did they get in the way of your uh, enjoyment?>>12693
If there's really absolutely no-one who saved it then I might dump it again but honestly right now I don't feel like it. I did warn I'd delete it eventually.>>12699
This artist is sublime and his vision of Takane is great but the prolapse at the end always turns me off.
Sibling or cousin incest I can get into just fine but mother/son or father/daughter stuff always turns me off. Not sure why.
Probably because the idea of fucking your mom or fucking your daughter is weird to you. It's weird to me too
its probably a bit of the over use, but also the word itself. I don't think I would have been taken out of it if it was something else. I knew it wasn't incest but the amount of "mommy" made it kind of feel like it I guess.
>>12705>the idea of fucking your mom or fucking your daughter is weird to you
It is, but I have a sister as well and so is the idea of fucking her. My dick is just able to separate the fiction from reality in one case and not the other. I guess there's an argument that father/mother incest is more deviant than the other kinds, so that's probably what it is.
>>12703>If there's really absolutely no-one who saved it then I might dump it again but honestly right now I don't feel like it. I did warn I'd delete it eventually.
If you upload it in a rar, I can download that and then dump it myself or post it to exhentai if you want. I thought others in the thread would be doing that, but I guess not.
Hopefully this gets a translation soon. Futa on female is the hottest stuff ever.
PC incest smacks more of abuse and conditioning than BS incest, which is probably the problem
BS incest is usually 'pure love', and even when it's basically rape it's a bit more gushing than PC incest, which always gives the vibe of being kind of nefarious and invested.
Believe it or not, I actually toned it down a little. In the original script Raikou uses a more formal term that could be translated as "mother" while MC uses "mama". I went for "mommy" because a quick research showed me that's how the western fanbase addresses her. Plus, it's a term with more leeway for fetishism than "mother". Also in >>12660 for example, Raikou is going the extra mile and literally saying "pour all your son semen into mother's womb". There's also as many instances of the word "mother"/"mama" as the number of times I wrote "mommy".
This might get in the nerves of people who are into it for the incest but >>12668
's pic tells the whole story.>>12736
Yeah, that's uh, good.
I'm already working on something else but I might give this a try. That uploader gets a lot of flak for uploading low quality versions though.
I love that there's separate versions without and with tanlines. I wish every doujin had that feature.
It's the worst when all the semen flies out of the vagina, internal xrays are way way way better
How long did this one take
Lots of words from an author that writes a lot. This was fun to translate in many different ways. Hentai like this proves you don't need hardcore stuff or break taboos to make something smoking hot. Shugaha is cuddles. Grade A wife material (except when she spikes your drink with aphrodisiac on a whim).>>12836
I think it's a mix of semen, sweat and Shugaha squirting. It gives the image a feeling of motion or impact so I forgive it.
Translation was on the spot, but typesetting was like a week. I had 10 pages done by february 12th to try to post it on valentine's, but for the already stated reasons I decided not to and slowed down. Just looking at the number of speech bubbles made it feel like a daunting task and I had a little trouble with the afterword but it was fun.
Actually, it was a week. This was uploaded on exhentai on the 10th of this month.
Meanwhile I think I learned how to make jpg images not lose their quality in GIMP but I'm not completely sure.
This is good stuff, thanks again for your hard work!
File: stitch.jpg (6.5 MB, 5120x3592) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Yeah, you saved them as Q100 JPEGs, which does mean they're lossless, but that's the worst way to go about it.
Take the first (non-cover) page as an example. At least it's grayscale, I'll give you that, but it's still over 5 MB. Compare that to saving the same image as a grayscale PNG, where it drops to only 3.8 MB, a 25% reduction.
JPEG is optimized for lossy compression, and using it in lossless mode is pretty much always wrong. For a "high quality" JPEG, Q95 with subsampling is basically transparent for most purposes; if you want an actual lossless format, use PNG. If you don't think GIMP is good at compressing PNGs, send them through PNGCrush afterwards.
Regarding the stitch of the front and back covers, running it through PNGCrush got it down to 10.5 MB; still a bit too big to post here, but a 30% reduction from the 15 MB you had. As a Q95 JPEG, which I would never recommend for archiving but which is fine for sharing on an imageboard, it's only 6.5 MB, with little to no visible artifacting. As a test, you can overlay this JPEG version on the original, lossless version, and set the layer blending to "difference", to see which pixels are off and by how much.
I didn't test with every picture, but I did save some of the pages as png to check file sizes and I did get some smaller sizes with some and larger with others, so I stuck with jpg because the only thing I know about this is that png = high quality and file size and jpg = lower quality and file size except when images had a small set of well defined colors, for which png is better. I messed around with the jpg save settings after these tests, though, and honestly I couldn't be bothered to keep going because I'm pretty much doing things without understanding how it's all supposed to work. It doesn't help that most tutorials I find online deal with photoshop (maybe because it doesn't have these issues) and others say "do X until you feel it's just right." After seeing the file sizes of other translators and seeing theirs aren't much different from the raws they're using I half gave up on complex solutions to bring down the file size (though I'm looking at it now and the images I've edited have a combined 19MB increase over the raws…).
I didn't know such a thing as PNGCrush existed. Thank you for all the info, I'll try to make use of it in the future (though I'll try to keep posting lossless stuff here, if you can even use that term after running things through pngcrush). Do you have any advice regarding jpeg raws? I went and messed with those just now to check file sizes and they're always bigger than the raw regardless of whether I save as jpg and png. Should I just export as png and run through PNGCrush? Saving them as PNG is giving me more than double the size of a lossless jpg.
Do you have experience in this area? Is my typesetting competent?
Sorry for all the questions.
File: artifacts.jpg (6.41 KB, 500x500) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Okay, I'll try to outline it simply.
JPEG is a lossy format, which means it will discard some information to make the rest compress better, while PNG is a lossless format, which means it will never discard information.
JPEG has a quality scale that goes from 1 to 100, which determines how much information it's allowed to discard. The higher you set it, the more information will be kept, up to quality 100, which is lossless. But since JPEG compression is optimized for being at least a little bit lossy, saving JPEGs at quality 100 will often result in larger files than an equivalent PNG. Both have the exact same information, but since PNG is designed to be lossless, it has better compression.
PNG actually allows many variants on its compression algorithm, and while some tend to be better than others, the only way to know for sure which is best is to try all of them. PNGCrush is a tool which automates this process, trying each type of compression and saving the file using the best one. This is useful because many programs that can write PNGs simply compress them all the same way, which is often suboptimal. However, remember that PNG is always lossless, so PNGCrush isn't discarding any of the information, just packing it more efficiently.
There's also stuff about color spaces and subsampling, and what type of image content compresses better and so on, but that's the basic difference between the formats.
If you saved these files as JPG because you wanted "lower quality and file size", then you messed up by saving them as Q100. Turning the quality down a bit will let you actually take advantage of JPEG's strengths and reduce the filesize significantly, at the cost of some lost information. This is where "do X until you feel it's just right" comes in; you'll want to test a few compression levels and see which is the best compromise between size and apparent quality.
If you wanted lossless files, then yes, saving as PNG and optionally running through PNGCrush is the way to go. Or you could do both, by saving the grayscale pages as PNG and the color pages as JPEG.
As for typesetting, I don't really know, but as a reader it looks fine.
Oh, one other thing: I don't know what sort of output options GIMP gives you, but if it's anything like Photoshop, you probably don't get a 1-100 scale to choose from, but some presets instead.
In that case, I'd recommend using IrfanView to test out different settings, since its JPEG save dialogue has a good set of options, and then ImageMagick for batch processing once you've figured out what settings you want to use.
File: 捕获.PNG (25.61 KB, 586x577) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Not him but GIMP does in fact give you the entire scale, along with some other options. My version is unfortunately in Chinese but you can see the scale there.
I am really sorry. You've spoon-fed me a lot of information (and I knew about part of it) but I'll probably use none of it. I've been looking into PNGCrush and no. I'm not going to dabble into linux commands or batch scripting again. I don't have time to get familiar with all this stuff.
>If you saved these files as JPG because you wanted "lower quality and file size", then you messed up by saving them as Q100
I wanted to save them in a smaller file size so I used jpg. It didn't occur to me that keeping the same image quality means keeping or increasing the file size but I acted on the notion jpg files are smaller by default.

This is what the menus look like when I export as jpg and png, except that for jpg the advanced options are hidden unless I open them.
I made the settings you see for jpg default, while those for png are gimp's defaults. I decided to take a look at the boku girl doujin again and I notice that the switch from png raws to jpg translation didn't lose any of the quality and only added 4mb to the total size relative to the total size of the raws. The translated png's are also significantly bigger than the jpg translations. My first try at a translation was the Rui doujin I posted a long time ago and the same thing happens (Grayscale jpg < RGB jpg < RGB png < grayscale PNG; at the time I posted RGB jpg I think). The results with these two doujins pretty much dictated how I was going to export images moving forward but I guess those raws were either extremely high quality allowing all sorts of uneducated messing around or so low quality whatever I did didn't even matter. The Raikou doujin's raws on the other hand were jpg and when I tried to extract them using the same file type there was visible loss of quality, so I switched to png and the result was twice the size of the raws, further cementing my faith in jpg magic.
For the record, I don't remember the defaults used to export the jpg's for the first two doujins since I only messed around with that part when I noticed I was running out of disk space from having too much raw manga on my computer (and GIMP's .xcf files are ridiculously big too, and when I tried to understand why that is the case the ever so helpful linux folk were advising a simple designer to open up his computer and add more RAM).
If you're going to be a one-man scanlation team and post your work publicly, then you'll have to get familiar with this stuff.
That said, there's nothing tough about PNGCrush, you just run pngcrush in.png out.png
and it does all the work. Based on what you've mentioned about filesizes, I suspect that GIMP is just terrible at compressing PNGs, so that's a necessary step if you're going to use them.
If you use JPEG, then luckily GIMP seems to have all the options you need. Again, the advantage of JPEG lies in its lossiness, so bump the quality at least down to 95 to start, and for color images, set the chroma subsampling to 4:2:0. You can also get slightly better results by making them progressive and by using floating-point DCT.
Take the first (non-cover) page of the Raikou doujin. Your version is 1.34 MB. Running it through PNGcrush produces an identical image at 1.05 MB. Saving as a Q95 JPEG further drops it to 706 KB. That's almost a 50% reduction, and the resulting image is only .13% different from the original.

>>12865>That said, there's nothing tough about PNGCrush, you just run pngcrush in.png out.png and it does all the work.
The problem is I don't even know that much.
Though, I ended up finding some compiled version of PNGCrush that does the job without me having to write things in a command line or even understand where the filed on the PNGCrush page are supposed to go so all is well. I tested it and got the same results you mentioned in >>12846
Now I'll probably repost every doujin I've ever worked on. One image at a time…

>>12943>as long as there is no incest
What the heck is wrong with incest?
You think I can read this shit?
One final question (I promise nothing, though) regarding jpeg and GIMP.
If I want to keep the quality from raw to translation, wouldn't checking the box that says "use quality settings from original image" accomplish that without me having to mess around too much with the options? Or are those pointers you recommended meant to keep the quality and lower the file size on top of that?
The resolution is perfectly sufficient for reading.
The thing is, that option isn't "keep original quality", but "keep original quality SETTINGS". So if the source file was saved at, say, Q80, then that option will just save your new file at Q80 as well. It doesn't actually preserve any of the original data identically; you're still going to get artifacts on top of artifacts (as with any lossy-to-lossy conversion), and they'll be much worse the lower the original quality was. It might look good enough sometimes, but you're better off figuring out an appropriate quality level yourself.
Of course, once you settle on a quality that looks good for one page, you can just use that as a default for every page of the same type, and only change it if the results are noticeably bad.

What isn't normal is that she's both looking for it and is hypercompetent. Also, the author has weirdly good reasoning and dynamics for how all this works, like (example) the idea that slimes are actually similar to anenomoe and have transparent cartilege they form tentacles with.

Also I'll share this masterpiece since I'm posting in the porn thread: https://exhentai.org/g/1383546/c7d58a4dff/
>>18244>they updated sadpanda's whole look
they just changed the shape of the category buttons
Well it looks very different
Was the option for "detailed" view there before as well?
No, they changed other things. They made the website even more smartphone friendly.
Whenever I see a website force itself and its PC users into using a smartphone-friendly interface, I see a website that cares about statistics more than aesthetics. I see website that cares more about ad revenue than user friendliness. I see a website that cares more about the minimum common denominator than its loyal userbase. I see a website that wears a T-shirt with a mainstream-approved geek reference. I see a website that posts vapid drivel about the current most popular subjects to get followers. I see a website whose shallow attempts at sounding serious look all the more ridiculous thanks to auto-correct. I see a website that listens to all the same music and all the same TV shows as everyone else and proudly sports a banner saying "I'm not like those other sites". I see a website that takes selfies. I see a website that loves talking about the last time it was drunk. I see a website that watches the latest big sports event for the ads. I see a website that tries to incorporate as many internet culture references as possible in its sentences. I see a website that settles for the fat girl as soon as the bar clock hits 10:30. I see a website that sold its soul.

whoah i thought we were talking about exhentai not samachan
>>18247>[wall of text]
The site works exactly the same afaict. Who cares if it's more mobile friendly, has it become less desktop friendly? Because if it hasn't (and I don't see that it has) then you're just complaining about improving the user experience.
Plus, I don't even *get* ads on ex, I think because my account was made before some cutoff.
Samachan should post funny/cute panels from doujins, I enjoy seeing those.>>18266>Plus, I don't even *get* ads on ex, I think because my account was made before some cutoff.
Wait there are ads on ex?
Last panel there would make a good banner I think

No I am not okay with this
If nothing else I am happy to live in a world where a magazine such as this existshttps://exhentai.org/g/1395453/09cff93485/
Now there's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time. It's nice to see veterans making a comeback.
Ignoring the selfcest, I'm fucking mad because the fantasy world presented looks seriously goddamn interesting. I want a series in this world.

Are doujinshi a bad influence?
Anyone have that one with the tall brown basket ball player girl rubbing her ass into a short guy's face to try and imprint him with her scent to make him fall in love with her?
Great doujin, Yam is an awesome artist. The situation is pretty cliche but the girls designs are creative, adorable, and sexy, and the character interaction is cute and funny. And of course the ero scenes are plenty hot.
Is anyone else having problems viewing images on the site?
its probably still getting ddosed
Is it not working on your side too? I can access the site just fine but the images won't load and viewing the images gives me this error.

Images on Samachan or on Sadpanda?
This is an interesting take on classic folktales and poetries.https://exhentai.org/g/1302487/c8a3877f76/https://exhentai.org/g/571593/340d83563b/https://exhentai.org/g/732065/184bcdb2c1/
The second link is an excerpt from the third which is the second volume of three existing ones but the only one translated. The title apparently translates to destroying (one's) childhood probably because these poetries were supposedly taught in elementary schools. There is quite a lot of decent Chinese/Taiwanese artists that does doujinshi nowadays, if I'm not mistaken as109 is Chinese as well.
McArthur's letter sure takes me back.
>There is quite a lot of decent Chinese/Taiwanese artists that does doujinshi nowadays, if I'm not mistaken as109 is Chinese as well.
More than just chinese. There's a ton of koreans too, as well as taiwanese. I've lost count of the number of times I'm checking an artist's works on twitter and he suddenly replies in korean or chinese to someone in their comments. Makes me wonder how many are actually japanese.
I've seen a couple of good chinese only doujins along the years and it pains me greatly that there's no japanese version because that means it's definitely never getting translated.https://exhentai.org/g/1181114/e400972e4e/https://exhentai.org/g/1101247/d335b624d8/https://exhentai.org/g/1045312/afffc437a3/
Bad Mushrooms has some pretty good ones as well and his usually get translated.
Dang that bunny girl is cute
They have their own doujin markets actually, though plenty travel to Japan to sell there too. It can be hard to tell sometimes until you see they have a weibo account or their pixiv profile says CN or KR since plenty publish in Japanese anyways.

Sadpanda is dead. Well, its the end of an era.
Be sure to start downloading everything now, because its not going to be up much longer.
Yeah sorry but I've had enough "he said she said cryptic messages = DEAD" episodes this year to see this as anything more than the site dropping its direct download/torrent features.
There's a sticky on 4chan's /h/ board, go read that if you need confirmation
Ah, I see. Sorry, I tend to avoid trash sites as much as possible. Thanks.
Literally nobody asked your opinion? Are you just here to troll? If so, you're shit at it and can go away now. Thanks.
I'm actually in awe, damn. At least I have most of my favorites saved and I am sure an agreed upon replacement will crop up soon enough like it did with Batoto and Nyaa and Mangatraders and other places, but that none of that makes me feel any better about this. Somehow in my head SadPanda was immune to this sort of thing, it was constant.
Also if anyone has a good download speed and would care/want to help a guy out:
This artist I like (Tatunokosso) has nearly all of their R18 and a lot of their art in general purged from pixiv/twitter and other places and I'm worried I'm not going to be able to download these galleries in time due to having so few peers.https://exhentai.org/g/1286473/5fa113287d/https://exhentai.org/g/1286490/656c06ec9e/
I won't get home before it's shut down or else I would, sorry.
That looks pretty good, will download it for myself
I simply stated I'm not on par with all the details because I avoid trash sites like 4ch, no need to get a sore cunt over my comment.

Very unfortunate news to hear, my exhentai account is well over a decade old at this point. Hopefully everything worth saving is managed to be archived, but I don't have high hopes for the situation.
I'm the guy who translates stuff sometimes. I sent an e-mail to the one who uploads things to exhentai but I doubt you had time to check it out. I assume the account you use to upload things is loaded with whatever currency exhentai uses, so feel free to download whatever you want. Just make sure you get a couple of things for me as well once you're done. I specified what in the e-mail. Feel free to prioritize your things since mine are mostly old doujinshi that I've noticed to be available in other places (some of them at least).
…And then you'll share it with Sama, right?
You're a fucking idiot
Maybe, but at least I'm not a shitty troll

Well I guess It's all over then ;_;
I was out all day, didn't notice until reading this thus never had a chance to try and help back up stuff to begin with. I feel bitter to no end.

Ahh. What a world to wake up into. It's darker than the one I lived in yesterday.
You really think so? The way I see it, Sadpanda helped propagate the trend of centralization of content controlled by people with little love for the medium who datamined countless communities (mostly 4chan) for a decade. If anything, the clouds parted and the air has become a little clearer. Nhentai is pretty fucked now they can't fetch anything off of it but there's still others that need to follow suit. The truly bad thing about this is that it took shitty lawmaking by shitty people who hate the medium even more for this to happen.
Several decades worth of content were housed there with no public backups anywhere else. It was the community and the archive put together. I've been telling people to archive everything for a long time but I'll still miss the people and the material. Couldn't care less about the site itself though.
>>23030>Several decades worth of content were housed there with no public backups anywhere else.
I see this as a consequence of normalizing sites like sadpanda. People placed their chips on this platform thinking it can last forever. Those shedding crocodile tears for all the lost content (90% of which they never really cared about) are the same who are going to be so surprised when something like steam goes down. The system we had in place before sadpanda only lacked in convenience.
Not that I myself wasn't caught off guard but I'm not going to pretend I didn't see this coming.

I do agree with this - people need to really start getting it through their heads not only the reality of what exhentai and other sites were (hosting stolen content) but also that pornography is getting cracked down on as well.
Decentralization should have been a major project for exhentai back when nyaa went down, but nobody seems to have learned that lesson.
While it does suck that all of those doujins, eromangas, artist CGs and artbooks are gone, I don't care about probably 30-35TBs worth on content on that website. I always hated how there was a fuck ton of western shit on there and thought the site could be better, even though it was easily filterable.
A long while ago I wanted to make an exhentai replacement that was purely just Japanese content, but I never got around to doing it after Fakku DMCA'd exhentai over wani content. Figured it'd be more a headache than it was worth, and from the looks of it I was probably right.
Oh well, continue to share doujins here, loli and other content will always be allowed until the federal government decides its not.
You don't have to be personally interested in some data to feel bad when it's lost. I've been archiving things and running p2p nodes for a long time because data loss terrifies me but I'm not going to pretend it's the fault of people who don't know better for not knowing better when this paradigm is all most users of the internet have ever known known. I'm sad about all the books I'll probably never read and artists I'll probably never discover because of this. Me not caring about it now isn't a reason I shouldn't care that it doesn't exist anymore.
And anyways sadpanda is in fact distributed to a certain extent through H@H. A lot of the images in the galleries are served by random users running servers. Several copies of all the data on the site should still exist distributed among thousands of users but I don't know in what form or whether there's any way like DHT or something to piece it together like from outside EH itself.
Well I am curious as always to see what will pop up in it's wake. Also I am supremely frustrated that what sprung all this was gay moralfag legislation, not even copyright stuff.>>23030>>23031>>23032
I've thankfully been saving everything I ever masturbate to since Nyaa went down. You all have a point about websites really needing to futureproof themselves better though because this sort of thing is happening more and more often it seems. I agree with >>23033
as well though, even though I only ever used the site for translated porn, and I have a lot of my favorites saved, I'm honestly saddened for all the people who are now unable to access or explore all the non-h or cosplay galleries for example, because it's probably those kind of things that won't pop back up so readily.
Oh and to your point about the reality of it being stolen content, that is an odd thing to think about. On the one hand I think it's shitty that so many people are enjoying the hard work of artists without them getting anything out of it (outside of maybe some name recognition but that doesn't pay bills). On the other hand, while it's not nearly comparable to the creation of the art, there is a non-zero amount of effort put in by scanlators and the community of it all. And just like with fansubbing and CR or with Fakku and their DMCAs it seems like there's always a cost to trying to legitimize things like this for a non-Japanese audience. And sure, if I knew 100% it was actually helping the artists I cared about and not lining the pockets of some dumb western company, and didn't spy on you, I'd have no qualms about paying for a service that offered everything Exhentai did, but something like that existing without turning out mega gay just seems unfeasible. If it wasn't such a pain to do I'd buy physical doujinshi more often as well.
The public site will still be up till 2020.
>If it wasn't such a pain to do I'd buy physical doujinshi more often as well.
If you're really willing to pay for it all there's always Mandarake and Yahoo Auctions. I buy books from there pretty regularly.
Well my point still stands then, just to a lesser degree because it now only covers "extreme" content, which I have to imagine most non-H works aren't covered under. That big of a time frame should give people more than enough time to work out a reasonable replacement which I suppose is good.
>I'm not going to pretend it's the fault of people who don't know better for not knowing better when this paradigm is all most users of the internet have ever known
Actually, no. You can't make the argument for over 50% of the people in the subculture only having achieved sentience two or three years ago when nyaa went down. Though you can make the argument they might be retarded enough they don't measure on the scale of self-awareness. Sadpanda is not the fist platform where this happens. Five years ago gamespy went down with a whimper when in its heyday people claimed it was too big to fail - after all, the servers for battlefield 2 and CoD2, the best multiplayer FPSes of all time, were hosted in it - and the user base had to come up with their replacements. Then you have the afore-mentioned nyaa. Once again, the user base had to react to the events. And now you have sadpanda where, once again, people are taking the passive role of reacting to the changes around them. A big hub collapsing overnight has not been an unprecedented event in the past five years.
As you're allegedly part of the select few who contribute in any way (scanners, hosts, translators, editors, etc), you not only have the right to be upset, you have the duty to admonish the retarded majority.
Sure, for people who read scanlations of erotic manga. There's a barrier of entry there that precludes anybody from getting involved without being cognizant of some of the problems in the community. I meant in general since I archive all kinds of things and this sentiment is pretty common among archivists who seem to have lost touch with what it feels like to be an end-user who hasn't invested the same amount of energy and passion. There's arguments to be made about for protective elitism about whether someone who isn't already deeply invested should have the right to the material at all but I'm not really interested in that debate as much as just hoarding data in general.
Speaking of gamespy though, I was pretty surprised it still existed at all at the time. I hadn't used the site in like ten years and it was maybe half than that since I'd last used it to play Civilization IV online. It wasn't a good experience using it but I wasn't happy to see it gone either. And while nyaa actually went down several times and has gone through several domains over the past ten-odd years I don't think bittorrent trackers in a world where every client uses DHT is really a huge issue anymore, at least not public ones. I wonder if the former what.cd users ever managed to regroup.
Isn't the problem more that 'decentralizing' something the size of Sadpanda would be an extraordinarily expensive project? Plus it's not actually legal so you can't be TOO out and out about it, even if it's an open secret. I mean hells look at Kyoani, that's a highly successful commercial venture that probably has way less data than Panda, and Kyoani didn't bother backing stuff up either.
Anyhow, there's a few large galleries on sukebei for older content. Here's one.https://sukebei.nyaa.si/view/2769655
There's also always hitomi.la and stuff, though for newer content I guess there's not really a widely accepted alternative besides maybe nhentai.
This is fucking rubbish though. I didn't even realize because I've been away from my home computer for so long.
Nhentai is just a bot that scraped the lowest quality files on sadpanda. It'll be gone soon enough. And EH is already served to users in a decentralized manner even if it's all just a load-bearing structure to buttress the main servers for a single website. It was several steps from a properly encrypted P2P distributed data store but the basic idea was there. I don't know why after like ten years years they never took it further, there must be a reason. Anyways the fag who owns the site claims to be planning to back up everything and other people are working on stuff. We'll see how it turns out. I'm curious if he really means everything everything, including all the "deleted" wanimagazine and fakku stuff and whatnot we all know is still there and just hidden in a secreter club than the island where Tupac hangs out with Owen Glendower.
Is it truly a bot
I didn't realize, huh. Interesting then, I thought it was just another shitty site with a relatively large userbase on account of not looking like it was from 2001 and not being a secret club.
That said, the H2H system was opt-in and effectively relied on people donating disk space. I guess they could've publicised it more, since I'm pretty sure plenty of users didn't realize that it existed, but even so I'm not sure that enough people would've allowed panda to store stuff on their computer. Doujins aren't exactly small files, after all.
Woah, good news! I can finally get my lolis again. But does anyone know what exactly changed that made it come back up? There's a forum post from the admin saying that he still plans to shut it down in 2020 and he details some vague plans for the future but no real explanation about the panda
I used my influences to bring it back
Glorious day, I was hoping for TL-san to translate this but it was too far from his tastes, but it was uploaded in English today, hooray! God Bless Takahashi Note.https://exhentai.org/g/1458951/5e90be0d7d/
