Ethics

Maybe a section on discussions of scanlation ethics? I assume there are some codes of practice (ie., stop distributing once it's licensed for English release?) --Betty 18:45, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

WAIT WHAT -- ... sorry Betty, but I HONESTLY had not even seen your remark here when I added the bit about scanlation ethics some minutes ago! This was, what, telepathy? o_O; hehehe. --lian 19:28, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Didn't you know you were signing up for the hive mind? I'm sure it's somewhere in the terms of service.--Penknife 19:50, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Better Living Through the Hive Mind -- I hadn't even read the fine print, but I'm sure lovin' it! *g* is there a page on the fannish hive mind yet...?! --lian 20:10, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
You know, there's not, and there totally should be.--Penknife 20:21, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
It's the hive vagina which concerns me. --Betty 02:51, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Stopping distribution is not the norm, so I've added more to that section and changed the wording of the original bit to reflect that. I also added a section on doujinshi. --Kyuuketsukirui 23:06, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Reorganizing the article

I'm finding this article very wall of text (partly due to my own additions, I'll admit). I'm going to break some of the subsections off into their own articles. This is a massive topic that can easily fill multiple pages. Franzeska 20:13, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
