    Default What happened with MangaHut?

    So, last friday I wanted to upload manga to MangaHut, since they are the only ones who don't resize scanlations, but the site seemed to be slow...

    Furthermore, the uploading option was gone and the forum completely deleted... Everyone's accounts have been turned zero, and only one guy (the admin) posted a crude message:

    Well, now that I've fired all of the assholes I can go ahead and start running my site properly. First things first.

    1) Please upload manga. A good place to find it for uploading is mangashare.com. Everyone please go steal the manga from mangashare.com and upload it here.

    2) I'd like to make some friends. I'm going to be making some group pages fairly shortly to promote all of the excellent groups who's scanlations we share. If anyone is interested in being a promoted group please post here or upload your scans.

    3) I'd like suggestions on how to make the website cleaner. Like the look of the site and other things and general people would like to be seeing.

    There. Oh and if anyone posts any rude comments or even mentions the mutiny you're getting banned. haha *I don't care. This my site.
    I wanted to reply to this post at MangaHut forums, but it seems that only admins can post on MangaHut forums anymore...

    After some research, I found the lost people of MangaHut who gathered to make up a new manga online viewer on their own (http://themutinyblog.blogspot.com/):

    Hey guys,

    Some of you are wondering why I'm not sending an individual email but chose to post this here.
    Well, I'm kinda lazy to reply to 30+emails, not that I don't appreciate it, but I keep forgetting whom I've replied what to. So to make things easier, I will just post updates and stuff here. So please check back from time to time, and bookmark this page.

    First of all, The Mutiny (People who are in with me in this project) would like to say a big thank you for the support we got from you guys.
    All of us were once loyal supporters of MangaHut,some of us premium donators,some of us Mods and uploaders who spent the time, effort and put everything into the site, or others, lurkers who were in the community.
    We came together as a group of friends who remain tight, and would like to make something similar to what MangaHut was to us, a place we could lurk,(and stalk little kids) or a place to talk about useless things like robbing the bank,etc.
    Take note however, we might want to be what MangaHut WAS,not IS. But we will be different in every way. We will take pride in our work and not have biased personal reasons to promote,demote or let the site go up in flames.

    We've taken the initiative to make a site of our own where people could find the sanctuary MH(MangaHut) once gave. Some of us chip in from our own pockets, some of us got it from kind donations.

    So in summary to my long-ass speech,
    Thank you for giving us your kind support, offering any help you could possibily give in terms of offering uploads,donations,etc.

    We aren't going to demand you give us some money as what the site is costing us so far is kinda expensive, but we will greatly appreciate any donation that come our way, no matter how small or big the amount, be it a couple of dollars or tens.

    If you would care to do so, please head on over to
    http://otakami.org
    (There's a paypal donate button at the very top)
    And list your name, user in MH and Email. Once our site is up and running, we will include a thank you to your username in our site

    Once again, on behalf of the Staffs and myself,
    Thanks and please check back for updates
    VLING
    I didn't exactly know what went wrong but found one of the top uploaders of MangaHut now uploading at MangaFox, TheQwertiest

    About the situation on MHut... Hm... I'll try to explain or rather just tell what happened:

    Day 1: Several forum/chat-active users were temp-banned by Kaiten(aka Nination - the owner of MHut). Reason: smth like "For fun. I've done this just coz I can."

    Day 3 (or 4 - doesn't really matter): Practically all site's uploaders, mods and admins were demoted to common users. Several active users were banned again. Reason: ???... Reason remains unknown. We tried asking, but all we got in the response was smth along these lines:
    1. "All of you (i.e. mods and such) just should've reapplied to your position (i.e. asked/begged Kaiten). Not a single of you did, which means that you don't suit this site."
    2. "I'm the owner, I can do whatever I want."
    3. "I don't owe you anything."
    and so on and so forth.

    Same day: Mod's/uploader's recruit thread was posted by Kaiten. A lots of random rants from the viewers. Most of them were banned. All ex-mods and such who posted in that thread were banned if their posts contained even a little disapproval of Kaiten's actions (e.g. after I've said smth like "I dont understand what are you trying to achieve... Wonder how the site will survive through this..." and yes, there were no explicit words or excessive critique, I was banned with the reason "For being an asshole").

    Day 5 - Nowadays: All negative posts about current state of affairs are being removed.

    That pretty sums up all info that I've got.

    Hope this clarifies things a little. If you've got any further questions, I'm always willing to help =)

    [PS]: Here is a direct quote of one of Kaiten's messages:

    2) This is my site. I founded it. I'm sorry you guys thought you were big shit and on my level or above me, which is exactly the reason most of who got banned got banned for. (QWR's note: no comments)

    Azula got banned for being an obnoxious little bitch and not following orders. end. (QWR's note: IMO the real reason is the underlined text)

    StaticXD got banned for sending inappropriate messages to underage viewers and uploading too much vulger content after repeated warnings. (QWR's note: actually major part of MHut's DB is hentai...)

    Shin got banned for posting nonsense against me. (QWR's note: a lil quote of nonsense: "WTF just happened!?")

    VLING and a few other people got banned on mistake and for having inappropriate pictures listed on their profiles. (QWR's note: there were no 'inappropriate pictures' or at least no that I was aware of - and I was a pretty active user)

    The way to get unbanned isnt to go against me because I'm the supreme overlord shit of this site no matter what. THIS IS MY SITE, I'M JUST SHARING! That's all there is to it, no one is above me. Sorry if you thought you were but that probably why you got fired.

    [PPS]: You can quote and re-post this message wherever and whenever you want with or without mentioning the source (i.e me =)).



    I have a lil question: can I upload your releases to MFox, pleeeeease?

    Taking in account the MHut situation, I doubt that any more of your releases will be uploaded there. And that would be really a shame, coz you've scanlated some great series.

    There is another option though - http://www.mangatoshokan.com/ - they don't compress pics too, but it's not as popular as MFox and I'm not an uploader there XD.

    I know that you don't want your high quality work to be resized to the point where all HQ edits will be unnoticeable, but I want to share those great series with the manga community and MFox's engine is not as compress-aggressive as it was before.

    I'm looking forward to your answer.

    Have a nice day!

    So a lot of things went wrong at MangaHut forums that were mainly conected with the admin there losing his marbles and having a huge god complex...

    MangaHut: "Scanlators are our bitches"

    [spoiler][/spoiler]

    In case you are from MangaHut forums and are looking for your old buddies, some immigrated to mangatoshokan.com and are uploading there now...

    I will add more info about the details if I can find some and will post this on other forums as well...

    Hm, is this a joke? Being serious as I never go to MangaHut. This being posted on April 1st has me questioning.

    Though if this is real I'm not totally sure how big this is exactly.

    Drama? On the internet? Surely not?
    Never used the site, but the admin sounds like an ass.

    april fool's day joke ?

    anyway, i use onemanga on a daily basis, mangafox for series i can't find, and mangahelpers if i'm curious about latest raws, so this doesn't really affect me. i'd say mangafox has the best UI out of all upload sites, their web developers must be pretty good.

    ^me too. I usually use Onemanga for online reading. For any other series I use mangatoshokan or mangafox.
    Though most of the time I just download it and read it in my pc.

    btw is it me or that mangahut guy is trying too hard to sound like an ass.

    it was quite surprising what happened. everything seems slow since then.
    As vincent and echo said, the idea that he was doing some joke crosed my mind, but this seems to be too much for just a joke
    its not that i dont respect your opinion, i just dont want to hear it!

    "Only in case" of StopTazmo going to disappear within the next days/weeks/months, ppl should meet at mangatoshokan or jCafe24 forums to restructure...

    I think we talked about a fallback option before but never really decided on anything (I vote for jcafe24). I hope ST continues to stay alive but with Kane MIA, who can say for sure?

    we're not active enough to justify a fallback.

    if you really wanted to keep in touch with people you'd know how to.
