I've been a member of this site, for not too long. I won't lie, I originally became a member simply to gain access to the manga downloads, which is why my name is so random(that I even remember it is a miracle). But anyways, I just wanted to take the time to say thanks. I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, and I can't really imagine the amount of teamwork and dedication that's needed to maintain a site such as this, but I sincerely thank you for your efforts in keeping the downloads up for as long as they have been.
I grew up watching anime/reading manga in the time before bittorrent and direct download sites existed(had to rely on p2p stuff like KaZaa lol), and I remember coming across this site a long time ago, and was kinda surprised at the amount of manga that was here for free. The concept of "by fans, for fans" is still for me, one of the most amazing concepts I can imagine. That you guys/girls take time out of your day to deliver to the internet community is just plain awesome. I suppose it was only a matter of time before greed kicked in and guys like "tazmo" would take advantage of people's good will, but still, the anime and manga community persists. Rock on!
Anyways, It's been a pleasure. I certainly hope this site continues to persist. I almost feel like the site is a part of the history of the internet anime/manga community, alongside the late great Toriyama's world if anyone remembers them. I know the downloads section is down, but if there's anything I can do to help, give a shout.
