This is something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while. Commissions are on a trial basis right now; if feedback is positive then I’ll make it a permanent thing.
How it works:
You may choose whether or not you want it released to the public. If you do want a public release, scans will then be watermarked and resized to regular release standards. If you don’t want a public release, the work can be re-commissioned for the same price. However, if the second/third/nth commissioner decides s/he wants it shared, it will then be shared. IF A MANGA HAS WATERMARKS, IT WILL NOT BE RELEASED PUBLICLY WITHOUT THE SCANNER’S OKAY. That’s also your responsibility.
I am willing to translate on a chapter by chapter basis, as well as start donor projects (ie: you commission chapter one of manga X, and hopefully interested parties pick up the rest). Preexisting or half-finished manga will NOT be eligible for donor projects, but if you feel the need to throw a few bucks at me to bump up project priority, by all means… :P
Payment: PAYPAL ONLY
COMPLETE SFX EDITING: $1.00 per average page
NO SFX EDITING: $.75 per average page
TEXT ONLY: $.50 per average page
*Textless pages are free of charge regardless of cleaning
What I won’t do:
Yes, this means I will do yaoi, yuri, hentai, non-H, shotacon, lolicon, toddlercon, guro, rape, prego, tentacles, futanari, scat, bestiality, freakshow, whatever other fetishes you may think of.
If you’re ready to commission/donate:
MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE THE EMAIL ADDRESS FOR YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT!
Does this mean Trine will no longer do free projects?
What about novels?
Would you do a text translation if I want a book done but don’t want to scan?
Would you buy and scan a book for me if there aren’t any raws?
Go ahead and ask any other questions you may have down in the reply area. :)
