    Default Stick to the man!

    Yeah I know this is in the wrong forum, but since there have been other threads similarly related to this here and since I want this to reach the widest possible audience, please let it slide?

    As most of you are probably aware, a bunch of American and Japanese publishers have formed a coalition against piracy. It seems this coalition has claimed another casualty in MangaToshokan. However this time the site has decided to (kinda) fight back. They are holding a survey (the reason I want this thread to reach the widest possible audience), the results of which they will give to the coalition. The survey takes no personal details, so it should be completely safe. I've taken part and made clear my willingness to pay for legal downloads and also how I dislike official localisations and the small selection of poor quality (mostly shounen) manga currently on sale legally. This is a good opportunity to anonymously let the industry know what you think. Remember that the first question allows multiple answers, tick all that apply (in my case, all of them).

    This should be the link, if not the link can be found in the scrolable text at the top of the page.

    I've done the survey and it's very straight forward.

    And now one manga has fallen victim. I have mixed feelings about this, since I don't like online readers (I mostly blame them for drawing the ire of publishers).

    I'm surprised that we haven't seen a major rise in activity.

    99% of internet users don't know how to use it or are annoyed by it... The rest are asperger kids...

    Wow, I didn't think it would come so fast. Now all that is left of the big ones are MangaFox and the AnimeA group (AnimeA, MangaReader).

    A good time to turn StopTazmo into a big online reader after the turmoil has calmed down.
    There are only too few titles to read here yet, and I doubt Kane will have an interest to continue after this summer...

    online readers are more concise.

    i'm willing to download zips and rars for series that i like a lot, but for something that i'm just reading to kill time or reading for the hype it's easy.

    I started using online readers around the time my dad let me know that we actually have a limit for how much we can download each month and told me to pay for the (50+ GB) extra stuff I downloaded over the limit. ...That, and running out of space on my 1TB hard drive.

    Some of us use online readers to avoid downloading for good reasons. Though I'll still be a little surprised at anyone who downloads that much manga.

    Well, pirates will always find a way to get what they want. =)

    ^ Reading them online still counts towards your download limit though. Of course, they may resize the pictures to be smaller for viewing purposes, I can't remember, it's been years since I downloaded a chapter in a ZIP.

    It's a little saddening that OneManga has died, that was my favourite online reader for quite a few years.
