    Not that I'm very proud on anythign we produce, but the name is indeed supposed to imply irony.

    EDIT:
    I'm sorry if my post sounded a little harsh phyre, but I just can't stand it when non-existing groups spout big words of working on a, in this case bitch-to-edit, series that another group already spends valueable time on.

    Why is the idea of translating Air Gear so ridiculous? Most popular manga's have atleast two groups working on them. And yes Air Gear is hard to scanlate but maybe scum-scans is having a difficult time becuase they are working on multiple projects. And don't get me wrong im not ungrateful or disrepectful of the work scum-scans has done i just think we might be able to do it better.

    More than one group on a project is ridiculous because it is an obvious waste of manpower that could be put in more, new manga. Yes, groups which do that are indeed stupid; I like to call it bandwagoning. As soon as a project gets a little popular, people jump on the wagon and try dive in its fame. Apart from that, there wouldn't be a problem if I had more japanese translators. Then again, saying this makes stupid fans go "OMG U HAV NU TL NOW!!11 WHERE RLS!!!12?". Boo.

    guys, phyre was just suggesting a scanlation group for stoptazmo, and he actually said it didn't have to be on air gear. Why are you guys dissing him, and saying its useless with 2 groups on air gear? He just wanna start a stoptazmo group for god's sake. Nothing said it HAS to be on air gear..just give him some slack. You don't have to be aggressive just because some1 came up with an idea.

    P.S. I can help edit.

    They just released a new chapter today.

    If you start releasing chapters of Air Gear, it's disrespectful to the people who brought you Air Gear in the first place: Scum-Scans. It takes away their readers.

    It's ridiculous because it's a shitty idea.

    "Most popular manga's"? You mean Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. Those are the three projects with multiple groups working on them. A few others, like Gantz and Fruits Basket, have multiple teams SCANLATING them, but in those cases it's an instance of one team still "having" the project, but not releasing, and another actually releasing chapters.

    Having 2 teams actively releasing the same series is a waste of time.

    Scum-Scans does a great job. A group of people who have never scanlated before will not be able to do better. It's disrespectful to them to try to steal their project.

    Besides, they just released a new chapter today.

    There already is a StopTazmo group, it's called Illuminati-Manga. Another is unnecessary.

    He said it was for Air Gear.

    It's a foolish idea.

    I prefer the tutorials illiteracy made in a day and a half compared to the vast majority of those "guides."

    But whatever~

    Yeah thats true but who said i wanna run scum-scans over i just wanted to do Chap67 by myself it doesn't matter wht u say if i wanna do it i will do it. If u wanna say something u should have said this:

    Yes we all know air gear is a good manga but we don't need two groups doing this. why don't u guys do......... Battle Star. If u need help to get the raw got to www. i don't know.com its a good upcoming manga and nobody is really doing it. PM me for more info.

    I have never done anything with adobe so i wanted to try it out cause i found some air gear raws in chinese and i have alot of chinese friends.I used to look up to u cooler immortal now i'm dissapointed

    Miyagice u are right about the whole two groups thing i just wanted try because i thought maybe u guys at scums are busy or having a bad to so i just wanted to help out. I thank u for fully reading peoples comments because a man can do anything he wants to do no matter wht people tell him. but i didn't know that u go to stop-tazmo so if u needed help u would have have asked Mybad

    1. It's not disrepectful to start releasing air gear. And if scum-scans readers really do enjoy their releases then scum-scans has nothing to worry about because we wont "take away their readers". Futhermore, scum-scans does not lay any claim on there readers and if they choose to read our manga it is because they want to.

    2. My idea was not a "shitty idea".

    3. You completely contradicted yourself by implying that it's acceptable for bleach,naruto,and one piece to have more than one group scanlating them.

    4. Having two teams release the same manga is not a waste of time. A little bit of a competition might force scum-scans to release their manga a little quicker which is good for everyone. And if this is truly a waste of time, LET ME WASTE MY TIME, it's not hurting anyone else.

    5. I do not deny that scum-scans does a great job. Hell, they do an excellent job. I just want to try to see if i could do as a good a job or better then them. And the idea that a new scanlation group couldn't do a good job is plain stupid. And were not trying to steal their project if anyone is stealing then they are, technically aren't they stealing by violating copyright laws and releasing air gear in the first place?

    And yes they did release a chapter today, i read it was good. lol

    Hehe, I've read most of these guides at one time or another. Some of them are just a tiny bit outdated, but they're still good for new people. Some of them also refer to a particular group and how it works. Great if you want to join their group, but not so great if you're trying to join some other group with different standards.

    Now, the QC guide... that was interesting... I would like to note that each group has several different standards with different rules. Very nice guide in general though. I even laughed at the mention of the "Manga Temple" font.
    One other nice thing was the little section at the end about the fanart extras. The funny thing is, mangaupdates' current poll is about fanart. http://www.mangaupdates.com
    One other thing I find cool is that one of my groups is mentioned in this section. Yes, I do know that color pages are a pain and the chapter is too large...(I myself have dialup.) I would like to correct that Negima chapters are usually 18 pages and that without pictures, they should usually come to around 7 megs. (There are reasons for this. Primarily, we have one editor editor doing the chapter. A lot of the chapters list 2+ editors, but the extra were only for harder rebuilding sections such is in a fight where a person shouts a technique name. With one editor and a real life, that editor doesn't exactly do a lot of cleaning or leveling... It also doesn't help that the raws are basically Jump quality.)
    Anyways, who made the QC guide? I can't find any mention of group affiliation or some other identification code. I would suggest adding something about checking for the need to rotate the scan.

    As for starting a new group just for Air Gear... I highly don't recommend it. Why can't you just join up with Scum-Scans and just help them with Air Gear? Actually, you can also try an agreement where you do like every other chapter or something like that. The best example I can think of right now is Ichigo 100% with the groups Akatsuki Manga, Yanime, Dragon Voice Project, Anime Waves, and Ass-Troop. Now, that was a great venture...

    As for doing another series besides Air Gear, nothing wrong with that. Got any series you want to try out?
