>it's already in there
I have all of Jojo from Part 4 to the newest chapter of Jojolion. Should I upload?
It's all in one rar that has each volume in a separate folder named by volume (Example "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Part 5 Vol.52"). Is that good for you guys? Oh yeah and sorry but I made the rar for a friend so it's password protected and the password is
Okay now I'm repacking it. It will take 16 minutes as of now. I hate password protected shit as much as you guys and the only reason it was password protected was because I use a dropbox with like 10 other people and wanted to send one guy the Jojo collection.
Uploading Jojo now. It's 4.3 gigs. Where is the link to the spreedsheet?
Wait, we have Akira twice. One is chapter by chapter, not packed, and the other is in cbr, volume by volume. I guess we should delete the first one, but I'm not sure if one has better quality than the other or something. Can someone check?
I'll upload all 7 volumes of Christie High Tension/Young Miss Holmes once I finish ripping the last two volumes from comixology.
With the ftp client, you can drag folders.
AKIRA - cNN-NN (vol0N) [Full Color] [Darkhorse].zip
One zip per volume, with the NN being the chapter numbers and volume number.
Of course. I'm just saying that if he wants it right now, his best option is using the ftp client and dragging the whole folder. But as you can see, >>110181988 is gonna fix it, so he can also wait.
I've never really got into manga on my computer, can some one recommend a good thing to read them with and an FTP client?
>chapters before volume
>in completely scanned manga
I would say Gunm, but not sure.
I'm just following the naming scheme. I think it's a good idea though, because it allows for the whole thing to be organized, and a page would be able to read all the info in the filename in a flash thanks to the grammar being kept thorough all the names.
Already put my request as the txt file in the ftp.
What we should discuss is how we keep reddit and tumlbr out. I can see them:
>Hey guys I found a great place to download manga :)))
How do we make this a secret club?
>>How do we make this a secret club?
No real way, if they can find this link, they will be able to find any possible password or catchphrase simply by searching on google or any archive.
If it gets out, nothing we can do. Just hope that they acquire some good taste by osmosis.
The forced distinction between tank and mag scans makes renaming old releases a chore, especially for volume bundles that mix scan sources. It'll probably never take off for this reason.
K so I'm sorting through Monster Collection to upload it, but I just noticed Volume 6 page 8 seems missing from my original download.
Anyone have it?
The sole purpose of this retarded chapters before volume shit is to be able to sort series where you don't know which chapters are from what volume and maybe idiotic distinction between tank and magazine scans. Outside of that it's completely pointless.
>The forced distinction between tank and mag scans makes renaming old releases a chore
The forced (mag) is unfortunate, but it must exist to ensure that extra chapters always sort in the right place.
>especially for volume bundles that mix scan sources.
(mix) was added to the spec a while ago for mixed archives like this.
And yeah, renaming old stuff can definitely be a chore, but it's for a good cause.
And that's the reason you can write (mix), instead of (mag) or (vol00). And there's plenty of reasons to make that distinction, the most important ones being redraws and quality.
I don't see how it's a chore, anyway, since it takes less than 10 seconds to rename a file, and if you don't know what you have (it should be obvious if you have covers or not anyway), you could always write (mag) just in case, and keep going.
>Outside of that it's completely pointless.
So... it's not pointless?
One easy way to identify magazine scans (if the overall image quality doesn't give it away instantly) is to look at chapter end pages - if there's a lot of extra crap in the margins, chances are it's a magazine release.
>I don't see how it's a chore, anyway, since it takes less than 10 seconds to rename a file
>2TB of manga
Are you gonna upload them all yourself? I don't think so. If everyone does his part, this shouldn't be that hard. And it's not like you have to do it all on day one, or as if you have to sit down and keep working on it 8 hours a day. Just do what you feel like doing each day, ask for help, and by when it's finished, we'll have one of the best things ever.
Not him, but I can see that being needed for incomplete scans, but for complete scans? If everything's already in the volume packs, then it's redundant as no new chapters will be added at any point.
A single look in Complete folder should tell you why this scheme is stupid and redundant. And to name it properly you will have to go through each of them to add chapter numbers.
I think Daiz should do it himself.
Some trade-offs are inevitable to ensure proper sorting. But at least you can always add the "real" name of any specials as extra information where it won't affect sorting.
Apparently, the Color version is all part of the same volume, should I just label it
>AKIRA - c001-038 (v01) [Full Color] [Darkhorse]
What problems? That things sort properly everywhere without ever having to rename anything? Boy, what a huge problem to have in comparison to some special chapters not being numbered "properly" at the start of the file but can still include the "proper" numbering in extra information.
Might have redundant information for completed manga but not all manga are complete. The scheme is meant to cover as many cases as possible. One size fits all has never been the best option just the simplest.
If you consider spreading misinformations a good way to work, fine, but some people like to have things organized. You haven't even started thinking from the right end - page naming.
Have you noticed that there are folders for ongoing and complete manga? That's organization that comes as naturally as it can. It's only reasonable to expect that files will be reorganized when series gets completed and then the your naming becomes pain. Why don't you go and fix the names for all the completed manga to prove how superior your idea is?
I'm updating the spreadsheet, and in blade of the immortal, both mangaupdates and MAL list it as having 30 vols, but there's 31 in the folder. Does someone know about this?
Akira has 38 chapters, so it should be c001-038.
>If you consider spreading misinformations a good way to work
How is it spreading misinformation? It's placing the chapter in the right place where it should be, and you can have the "proper" name included as extra information too. I'd consider it a much bigger misinformation issue if it sorted into the wrong place.
Don't bother, it's too late already. That should have been the first thing you proposed.
>How is it spreading misinformation?
Because you guess the numbers to fit the scheme. Not the other way.
If you think anybody is going to bother put an extra information there, you're delusional.
And look into the Completed folder, do you see anything sorted wrong? I ask you again, are you going to go through it and rename it or are you expecting others to do it for you and claim success?
>Because you guess the numbers to fit the scheme.
But there's no guessing involved... you use a chapter number + special number that puts it in the right place. That's it.
>If changing the numbers from official is not on the same level or worse than guessing, I don't know what is.
How about changing the order from official? Again, I would call that a far bigger offense than adjusting the numbers somewhat so that it will always end up being in the right place.
How so? Put an example, please, because I'm not seeing it. You use the official numbers if there's any. If there isn't, then you use the chronological order of release. For special chapters, you use the last chapter and add a x1 (kinda like how some chapters are called 15.5, with this scheme, it would be called 15 x1). I don't see any guessing.
Holy shit, this is comprehensive. Can I just take any of this?
Any manga will end up sorted right with the proper system sooner or later anyway.
Extras are usually not part of magazine release, so the problem goes away completely with volume-only names.
Sorry, but if you name files with decimal chapter numbers or non-numbers, you're never, ever going to cover all the corner cases and will end up with incorrect sorting. This is a fact. The scheme might require adjusting things like "chapter 15.5" into c015 x1, but it does guarantee that things will always sort properly and end up in the right place.
Thanks to anon who uploaded LucuLucu.
I wanted to read it, but forgot to download it.
Dorohedoro isn't zipped, but rather volume folders full of images.
Should someone take care of that?
I mean, sure you can just download the folders, but rather inconvenient.
And thanks to whoever uploaded Annarasumanara.
The sheer volume of material /a/ collectively has on their hard drives is dawning on me. There must be an archive of just about every anime, manga, book, and game out there.
There are no corner cases that lasts forever with old scheme and any corner case can be dealt with using same rules as you propose. The main difference is that when series is complete, it goes away if you use volume numbers like everybody ever.
Proving my ideas wrong is as simple as renaming everything on ftp to your scheme, isn't it?
You're dumb. Yeah, your "system" works in the end... but is shit while the series isn't in tank (some never are), and even worse if you have to make a web or a program that reads and displays the files in an ordered and understandable manner (there's nothing that I hate more than when there's a chapter wrong sorted in a manga, and I realize it when I finish it).
And, yeah, proving you're wrong is as easy as that. And we're working on it. Just because you're a lazy faggot that doesn't want to cooperate doesn't mean everyone is.
someone should upload these, found the links in the archive
Doll the Hotel Detective
>there's nothing that I hate more than when there's a chapter wrong sorted in a manga, and I realize it when I finish it
You don't notice when plot gets broken? I think you have a bigger problem that naming.
It's not problem of naming anyway, it's caused because people can't organize shit they release or upload somewhere and that's won't get fixed by any scheme.
>Yeah, your "system" works in the end
Just for your information, it's not "my" system. Ordering releases in volume archives with volume number first is something that has been used consistently by every group and archival site since forever.
>Just because you're a lazy faggot that doesn't want to cooperate doesn't mean everyone is.
You will realize sooner or later that it's not about laziness , but how many corner cases you will have to resolve and what will you end up with..
>You don't notice when plot gets broken? I think you have a bigger problem that naming.
Because all stories have linear storytelling, right?
> people can't organize shit they release or upload somewhere and that's won't get fixed by any scheme.
And that's the reason why we're trying to convince a few that they do it, so our work is lighter later, while you're completely unproductive.
>it's not "my" system
Ok, I should have said "the system you're talking about". Still, my point stands. The system is not good enough for this kind of site, no matter how long it has been used or by whom.
>You will realize sooner or later that it's not about laziness , but how many corner cases you will have to resolve and what will you end up with.
Come and tell me that after you've done something productive instead of complaining about something that you weren't gonna do anyway.
I propposed that for the folder filenames, as in:
Name of Manga [Name of Author]
but no one listened.
I have them, but they're meh. I got them from a Mediafire folder that can be found in the archive. I'll check if they're scanlations or actual scans.
I"m cure Crunchy or Viz have something worthwhile, just start ripping stuff on your own.
I'm scanning volume 4 now.
Golgo 13 folder update in queue. Adding the tribute drawings by various mangaka, scanlations, and a link to:
No, nothing aside these exist. You can look for printed copies in libraries/second-hand bookstores and then steal them for scanning purposes.
Also, some of them are sold on Amazon, it seems.
It's not viable, anyway. Maybe in the 90's, when you could just disappear with the book. Nowadays in the information age, if you don't return a book you get fined. If you don't pay that fine, they send it to a credit agency and your rating gets hit.
kindly /r/equesting Centaru no Nayami
also, To Love Ru darkness fucking where?
I got my magazine scans monthly ever since 2010, but I lack the tank scans and the colored volumes.
I apologize in advance if this is an stupid question:
The uploaded stuff is taken out after a while or will it be there for ever and ever?
My internet is shit, so I make take a while to download all the stuff I want.
also: /r/equesting Kodomo no Jikan
I was looking for Chocolat recently. Every chapter v1 though the beginning of v5 I've been able to round up, but th scanalator's for chapters 51-54 have been long dead.
Uploading the only scanlated chapter, and the raws, for this.
Shoujo Kidan Makora - Abe Youichi (Daidai wa, Hantoumei ni Nidonesuru, Chimoguri Ringo to Kingyobachi Otoko)
I doubt it, running it aint free you know, still i don't know if ftpanon is rich or not, only he can tell.
No, we are using it right now meanwhile there don't are alot of options.
There should be a collective effort on 4chan to upload everyone's media, images, etc. Who knows what amazing and terrifying things lie in old hard drives.
Where can I get the first four chapters for Tsugumomo?
That's the really incredible yet ironic part. Old gems and treasure troves of content will undoubtedly exist for years to come, even decades in the cases of people that hoard files or just forget about them. Yet most of them will never see the light of day again.
The average anon has at least a few thousand images, on the very light end of the spectrum. There's 4chan time capsules waiting all over the world.
It really is, I need to buy more hdds to hoard stuff for one day, more anons need to upload their stuff in the future. Also didn't the original 4chan archives die? Imagine all the lost threads
Never used ftp, want to contribute. How do I upload stuff exactly?
The great thing is it's actually viable given the ever-decreasing costs of storage media I remember when storing my music involved hard decisions on what to throw away, and awful compression. These days I just download stuff in FLAC without even thinking about it and keep it forever.
Directory print of my manga folder. If you want anything, let me know. I don't think I have too many things of value, such as rare Viz scans, etc., but I might have something.
I'm not going to lie, if it's what I remember it being it's one of the funniest manga I've ever read. I'll try to see if I can find it on some forum sites or something to reupload it.
Would anybody be interested in Hokuto no Ken?
I still have to rename the files and get the Filezilla client, but I have everything.
I would like to request Pluto, also.
I don't know if this is all there was but this is what I have. I threw in the side-story from
Jungle Kingas well. I don't know about FTP stuff but if you want I can put it up on mediafire or something
>>I'm surprised people actually care about it so much, there was a ton of negative response when it came out because of the digital color quality.
Probably had to do with the fact that it was one of the first digitally colored comics. Neckbeards were probably bitching how the computer colored comics looked "too artificial" and the manga purists were probably bitching because it was colored even to begin with (even though Otomo was overseeing the colorization and had handpicked the colorist himself).
> 4 chapters
Yeah, there was just 4 but I threw in the side-story so it wouldn't get lost on my hard-drive. You can prune it anyway you want when you go to add it to file piles.
I uploaded enough raws to AB to get power user + an invite every month, but it was kind of a hassle uploading. There's always Nyaa to upload raws to, anyway, though their search engine lacks the ability to search description.
Here you go: http://www.mediafire.com/download/z9d9q467i9m8smt/VC(NJC)+JKCh.6VCSS-SS-.rar
Sorry for the wait!
And sorry about my personal file-naming scheme, it must look like shit to outsiders.
I am a /y/girl so if there's something else a bit rare that you're looking for I might have it, it would just take a while to upload.
Alright, I'll start upping it tomorrow. Gotta sleep.
I forget. I usually just keep what I like to re-read or recommend at LAN parties and whatever I'm following (that isn't dead) and archive the rest on disk. I don't keep track of that stuff.
Uploading v01-11 for you anon, unfortunately didn't get 12+13 before MT went down but they can still be ripped from Batoto.
There's no torrent for everything? And the fuck am I supposed to do with all this shit with a 5Mbps upload either way?
Filezilla is being retarded for me. I just tried uploading my Jojo collection and it got all the way to 100% then gave me an error. Can you guys give me any help because I'm pretty new to FTPs
I just want to say how appreciate I am of all this. How do you guys cover hosting costs?
Also, I don't mind uploading some of my collection, but:
a. some of it has been modified compared to the original (e.g., when they release by chapters, I unzip it all, put in one big directory, and re-zip per volume). Is that okay? And,
b. recommend me a free and easy-to-use FTP client please.
Do you already have a computer and an internet connection? Then you can host an FTP/HTTP server for 0 dollars, it costs nothing.
I just use my file manager as an FTP client, like caja or dolphin. Windows Explorer has FTP support too though, just type ftp://<domain or IP address of server> into the bar at the top.
FTP server with open write access to everyone.
You do realize how easy it would be to just set correct permission which would allow for writing only to certain directories, but not deletion. Just sheer and complete incompetence.
Anyone could just stroll in and delete everything if they wanted very quickly, I could right now, I won't, but I could.
I uploaded to this assuming there was something preventing people from deleting stuff, because I don't know much about ftp
But if there isn't I can't see this lasting much longer.
Uploading Fist of the North Star. If I added all of the group names, the filenames would be a mile long. Left those out. Each volume is an uncompressed archive with the .zip chapters inside (those have group names, if you're going to freak out about that).
There's a difference between this and that. Squidanon just spammed ika everywhere because he thought it'd be amusing, but there wasn't any real malice there, he wasn't actually trying to sabotage us.
HS decided to fuck over absolutely all of us, sometimes in actually serious ways. There was no playfulness there, only destructive impulses.
And they did it "for teh lulz" which pisses me off even more. I mean, if they actually got something [i.e Money] out of it, I would understand.
Fuck you HS.
I already hated you guys for acting like assholes, but now I absolutely abhor you.
Alright, uploading it now at 125/kbps. Doing what I can!
I don't know. It would be easy enough for me to go and do that right now, but I wouldn't do that to you guys.
At any rate, this is a stopgap measure until we get a proper system built.
So all I need to do is wait for him to go to sleep to start uploading my 3,000 squid pictures?
>admin hasn't made an application process to get personal credentials to upload
>implying admin isn't letting anon upload be enabled for a fortnight to see which email addresses are contributing
Don't worry guys, I'm sure no one is enough of an asshole to do anything too bad.
Besides, people kinda need this since MT is down; even if it's a stopgap measure, it's still pretty convenient.
And seeing all the /a/nons contributing is making
my kokoro go doki doki
Do I dare dream of such things...?
Then it seems it's time to put in an order.
Can someone confirm the RAW Maria+Holic volumes I uploaded aren't corrupted?
I uploaded them with filezilla but I couldn't verify if they're fine because they appear to have the correct filesize in the ftp.
I was going to finish uploading the rest of the volumes but I don't want to continue until I'm sure they're fine.
They're fine, dude.
Wow, not him but, that's a pretty idiotic answer to people that actually want to help.
You still gotta admire the spirit of being a dick even when it could be useful to you not being so.
As i said, I'm not the guy that asked, I just tough it seemed like such a rough answer to somebody who actually wanted to help.
It's seem like being a dick is automatic in most people here.
How is your first day in 4chan going.
Took me 5 seconds to find how upload whit filezilla, why he couldn't do that?
Most of my manga is on my PC, but I've got a bit on my laptop here. These are all complete, anyone see anything of priority they want up?
Akira is missing volume 1. Also how do I upload I want to help this
>go to My Computer
>create new network profile with OP url
>drag and drop files
>How do you guys cover hosting costs?
It's a random anon's seedbox.
Running an ftp server on top of that wouldn't add another cost for him.
I think the VPS itself costs £40/month.
Viz put a bunch of their titles up. It's mostly WSJ stuff though.
There are at least 10 volumes not freely available. You can buy them all digitally though. I kind of want to rip Twin Spica.
I kind of want to rip Kurosagi Corpse Delivery as well. Dark Horse is apparently resuming the series.
>I hope you enjoy your summer vacation.
I am enjoying it.
>FYI, FTP is still used in 2014.
I know, and it sucks.
>And not all people read on online readers.
Why the fuck not? http://www.foolz.us/info/foolslide/ is better than any other reader combined and if you really hate it, you can always write your own.
This is like going back in time, you're wasting your time making redundant copies of manga that's already available everywhere through an antiquated protocol so people can download them through an antiquated protocol to read them in fucking windows photo viewer or whatever.
Literally what the fuck? Am I the only one who realized this is retarded?
