Why is /a/ so butthurt about MT going down? You know there are torrent sites like bakabt that can easily replace it, right? Just download Deluge and start torrenting
>>
>>108686563
No one cares about it going down since some anon bought the data, it's the information that was hacked that made everyone go bonkers.
>>
>>108686619

Before that, there were tons of people trying to download the whole library. Where did said data go?
>>
Scanlations are disappearing from the internet anyway
>>
Daily reminder that Daiz killed MT and stole the donation.
>>
direct downloads have higher quality than manga streaming sites run by sleazy admins whose main priority is maximizing their ad revenue from Google

for manga you don't care about, like Bleach, using pandamanga site is fine. But you wouldn't use a shitty streaming site that resizes and resamples and degrades visual quality down on a manga like Berserk or Blame! or what have you, would you?
>>
>>108686941
MangaTraders has neither of those because muh licensing.
>>
It bothers me because it was my go-to place for downloading releases from groups that only post on reader sites/irc.
>>108686563
>You know there are torrent sites like bakabt that can easily replace it, right? Just download Deluge and start torrenting
If you only read completed manga, sure. Also Deluge is a shit client.
>>
MT did a great job at hosting loads of manga that isn't actually available in other places, for instance when a scanlator's site no longer exists or when their files are fucked for some reason. Their volume batches are also nice sometimes.

MT is valuable tool in the toolbox.
>>
>>108686977
Oh yea? what do you use?
>>
>>108687108
Kazaa.
>>
>>108686563
Good luck finding seeders for old or unpopular stuff.
>>
>>108686563
Speaking of Deluge, how come this client can't read letters other than the standard alphabet? I can't download anything japanese nor I can't download Love Live shits because theres a letter "µ" in the filename.
>>
>>108687185
When that happens I just save the torrent file and open it manually, then it works.
>>
>>108687108
After new versions of uTorrent turned to shit, I tried both Deluge and Transmission for a couple months each, but they both suck so in the end I just went back to uTorrent 2.2.1
>>
Is there anything wrong with qBit?
>>
>>108687461
No.
>>
>>108686977
XDCC is fine but some don't have it.

It grips my asshole who some people only upload to readersites. MT was indeed useful in those situations, even if you had to wait a while.
>>
>>108687461
if you support entropy, yes.
>>
>>108687461
I would change to it, if I could import my torrents from utorrent through resume.dat. Real shame it can't.
>>
>>108687162
And good luck finding torrents for stuff that wasn't even finished scanlating.
>>
I could count on the fingers of my hands the number of times I've been on MangaTraders, but I was grateful for its existence every time I went there. It's quite sad, it was a place where I knew they had what I was looking for.

>>108686619
I hope that's true. I hope someone backed everything up. And I hope that said someone creates an FTP server.
>>
Bakabt doesn't have much that's newer/unfinished.
Mangatraders was always great for series with shitty secret club scanlators who only give download links to their livejournal friends too.
>>
>>108686758
Where are they going to? Hyperinternet?

BakaBT has uncompleted manga available like One Piece and Berserk, they update when entire volumes are completed.
>>
>>108688150
>entire volume
No, they update whenever an "arc" finishes, and their definition is a bit loose.

Shorter series don't get partial releases at all.

Only unfinished series over ten volumes long get on bakabt

He didn't buy the data. The bitcoins were given before the hacking and were a donation to pay for the server costs since the paypal donations were lost.

What are you doing? Just making a few massive torrents?
>>
>>108688561
I was in #tradersnetwork at the time.
~$900 was the lost paypal donations.
$900 was for the upcoming payment on the 14th.
A lot of silliness and drama ensued because of someone from /pol/ trolling the channel.

In the end, Blue agreed to let Wilik (Aftershock) keep the full amount. Not like he had much choice though.

Some time later, an hour or two I believe, Blue asked for access so that he could download his own copy as well, since Sakisan was already given access.

If you want to see that as paying for the content, ok.

They're the ones who posted the MT user list. Because they're /b/ level idiots.
>>
>>108688897
They did the hacking, distribution, and cracking of the database info.
>>
>>108688960
Yes, as I stated that was part of the drama. Wilik was trolling the /pol/ troll and everyone else at that time. That's what he later claimed anyway. If you want me to paste logs I can, but there's no real point to do so.

I hope at least you are being a well-intentioned buy misinformed rather than a troll.
>>
>>108688960
You're delusional if you think One Piece readers are automatically underage.
Not even the guy you are arguing with.
You also need to lurk more if you don't know that a good part of /a/ are One Piece fans, and I'm not talking about new people.

I really don't know why this is still such a glowing point of curiosity. I spoke to Wilik, we discussed a few things, came to an understanding of what will be done, and he'll use the money for what we spoke about. But let's please not dwell on something so unimportant. What matters is that the manga is going to be saved and distributed.

>>108688807
Me specifically, I really don't know. There are definitely going to be torrents, for the most part I'm just going to go along with assisting the primary seeding that they do with it. But as for what I'm going to be doing on my own... I have yet to finalize.

I knew this shitty site woud get fucked

About a day or two before it was hacked I saw that they had $2000 in bitcoin donations. That's like waving a lottery ticket out your window in a ghetto neighbourhood

Fucking retards
>>
>MD5 with no salt
They were asking to be hacked.
>>
>>108690141
This wasn't discovered until after the hacking occurred.

That's just as silly as saying, "She was asking to be raped. Underneath her bulky artic wear parka and thick insulated leggings and several layers of clothing, she was wearing a thong."

They could have held it in their fucking pants until we finished downloading the manga. It risked the admins taking down the site forever and taking their data with them. Luckily we managed to negotiate and work something out, but it's no thanks to some fucking dumbasses that were antagonizing them on their IRC.

I stopped browsing the threads after they got the bitcoin donation system up

So you're telling me some guy donated the money to cover the costs of the servers, but they somehow got hacked, and they're fucked and just not going to go back online?

Jesus Christ, I stopped browsing because I thought this shit was done with. Why are people in general such stupid faggots? Why does stupid shit like this have to happen?

>Why are people in general such stupid faggots?

And also specifically these people:
>>108688499
>>
>>108690722
No, it had really shit security.

The hack was done on an unsecured development portal that allowed editting the DB directly. It was accessible by just using the folder name for that tool. The hacker got access to the forums that way and somehow ended up with root access.

The great irony here is that /a/'s help fucked the site over harder than it was fucked over by PayPal.

MT may have been able to get enough bitcoin donations to pay running costs without /a/. After all, they've been working off donations in the pass as well.

But /a/ got involved. And they formed an archiving project. And a jackass in the archiving project decided to create himself an admin user through SQL injection. And then the jackass decided to post the entire DB to "help" the project. And then other jackass decided to scrape it for passwords.

Just how massive will those torrent files be? The .torrent themselves. Files should amount to the thousands. Even if distributed over several torrents, they should be pretty big.

>>108700212
He's just one person, though.

>>108700524
I think .torrent size depends more on number of chunks than on number of contained files. With big enough chunks .torrent can be rather small.

You're all very welcome. I don't mind being thanked. I just don't want the thread to be about me. There are many other anons working harder than me at this with their fancy servers and knowledge of networking and tools and scripts. For a simple gathering of anons, sakisan's team is pretty amazing and it really speaks to the kind of diversity that browses /a/. They're doing the bulk of the work. I just throw money at things with reckless abandon, ask questions about the most basic things, and help out with what I can.

>>108700524
There will likely be multiple torrent files, most likely separated by alphabetical groups. In such a case, certain letters will have a lot more than others. Q for example, would be filled with Qualia the Purple and... I really don't know what else.

That's out of my ability to answer for now. I'm not the one with the ability to host anything. The MT Admin confirmed that MangaTraders utilized 110 Terabytes of Download Bandwidth a month. Someone might be able to handle such a thing. Mind you, once this torrent goes out, people with such capabilities will want to get their hands on everything. So the faster our team can finish everything and get it all out, the sooner the rest of the internet can come out with their own solutions to this problem.

Never knew about it, I would believe it though. "The Company" a "scanlator group" (they only do Korean web comics) is one of the worst groups out there and does pretty much everything you listed and as you probably know are the owners of Batoto.

>>108707514
I dislike plenty: easygoing scans, village idiot, and most of all kisu kiss manga (not to be confused with KISS manga) are all at the top of my list for picking up dozens of new series every month and thinking for some reason they own or have a claim on "their project" while they take months between releases with a fucked up series prioritization system where great series are queued for FOTM/shit.

Kisu is probably the worst group that is still alive though and instead of just annoying me like the other two is pure cancer for the manga scene. The series are not great, and they have released version 6 of some of the chapters, but check out the versions by Kisu and other group for All You Need is Kill and the Accelerator manga. Yes, they are so bad another group chooses to take over series they do.

Don't be retarded, you can only "reverse" an MD5 hash by bruteforcing. GPU's can do billions per second so any widely used password pattern will get cracked very quickly, thanks to all the plaintext password leaks we've gotten.

But if your password is a random string of 20+ characters then it isn't going to be reversed anytime soon.

>>108713036
I am on your side, but it is sadly true. I read garbage too though, and realize a series that is released weekly can be enoyable to read. I mostly dislike the people who think one piss is an upper tier manga rather than the shit it is.

That was out of fairness. We've been through this many times. We were going to get everything off MT and that's what we will do. Searching for fujoshi secret clubs has nothing to do with MT so we don't give a fuck.

Keep making excuses, fujoshit. If you lurked the threads since Day 1, you would have seem the rippers already complaining about the yaoishit that didn't belong on MT.

The thing about torrents is you can have a seedbox "server", but users can contribute to bandwidth. Also you can update a series' (or a master "MT") torrent, and while it would be a new torrent file you do not need to redownload the earlier chapters to seed them.

Sure, but why not just read on Kissmanga? This attitude is what hurts scanlations as a whole because even people that download fansubs just fine simply go to Mangafox. You’re scanlator and your release gets 20 downloads at most? Well why do you think it’s like that?

>bakaBT does complete sets only
>No, they update whenever an "arc" finishes, and their definition is a bit loose

BakaBT allows incomplete sets provided that it is a long series that cannot be completed in a year from the current date you are considering to upload. That is the loose criteria from the jury process. Anything less than a year, and you'll see the jury review tell you to wait until it is done. Besides, that allows the scanlators and their affiliated sites the courtesy of distributing their stuff the way they want.

In the distant past, there were irate people on 4chan or other forums that said boxtorrents/BakaBT should hand the site over to others to run so that the retarded policy of complete sets can be eliminated (no more long delays). Those "fans" weren't really fans but mere anime/manga consumers using logic such as "I claim I can spend your money faster than you can, so you must hand over control of all your money to me even though you were the one that did the work."

>Sending fake C&D notices to their competition causing them all to get shut down.

That's false. You are just that grudge-holding jerk telling more lies to make batoto look bad. You're the jerk that was in favor of the mainland china-owned mangafox making money by selling the work of scanlators. Batoto for a time used items from scanlators trying to fight mangafox with those watermarks. Some people got ultra angry at batoto for carrying items like that.

Mangafox is also part of a set of companies some of which counterfeit official anime merchandise and then distribute them to anime retail stores. That can make "official logo" merchandise a hit or miss sometimes because that official logo might be fake. But of course, the jerk doesn't care about things like that.

These grudge-holding manga "pseudo fan" on 4chan believes watermark is a crime sincerely (no lie, absolute true) worse than putting mass quantities people into ovens in real-life and killing them. At least some of their past rant threads against batoto seemed full of extreme anger and full of anger-management issues.

Is that really what one of the rules states? It just screams underage American to me. I was also thinking the person you quoted is a Batoto mod too, but on sites like batoto you have certain fags who for some reason are zealous in defense of "their" site.. He sure went off on some funny tangents though.

I was told that the admins of Batoto do not truly care about the H stuff and if it were up to them they would leave it. The story is that they have to satisfy their advertisers so cannot host the risqué. Then again, TLRD is up there and removing that would also remove thousands of their daily pageviews so you be the judge.

That's the problem. They don't follow their own rules and leave shit up that, under their rules, would be banned. Any time anyone confronts them about it, they give some vague reply about how they interpret their own rules or they send their shills to do the talking for them (with hilarious results).

Also, it's great how they always deflect to mangafox. At least mangafox is honest about what they do. These bitches have some sort of holier-than-thou attitude about everything. It would be fine if they would just admit to being hypocrites or say "Sorry, we only allow gay sex" but they don't.

It's all your fault. This wouldn't have happened if you would've stayed. You could've prevented this!

Ah right. I don't even remember doing that. I just zipped up my folder. I'll reupload it after I get the rest of Coppelion up.
