Two quick polls, regarding how I share stuff. I’m interested in your opinion :)

Hey everyone :)

I’m reacting to negative feedback I have received, recently and less recently, maybe I could, or should, alter a bit the way my shares are presented.

In short, I’m curious to know how you feel about two things, what proportion of you, out there, would prefer a different way…

Two topics, particularly : my addition of “www.hentairules.net” in the image names (should I discontinue it), and if I should split very large archives when I share them (as I don’t view this as important, I rarely do so, but maybe I should).

In more details:

(1) File names
Since 2007 when I was eager to make my blog popular, I’ve been, as a habit, adding “www.hentairules.net” in the image names. For instance, “something-www.hentairules.net-01.jpg“.
I wouldn’t have imagined it may be a problem, and yet I’ve read negative opinions on it. If you’re numerous enough to oppose this practice, I may stop doing so.
Mind you, even if I stop, I will still rename the files. Sometimes compilations made from different sets need to be renamed to be in the proper order, and I personally dislike the idea of folders in which the files are just named “001.jpg” and such, there’s no best way to never ever remember where a random image you have on your disk (or stuff you recover from a hard disk problem) was coming from.

(2) Splitting files
For the very large files: should I, or shouldn’t I, split very large archives into smaller versions.
Personally, as a person having a fiber connexion and a premium with depositfiles, rapidgator and uploaded, I’m all for super fat one-file-contains-it-all archives :twisted: But maybe I’m a minority ^^
If you would prefer to have archives split in smaller parts, for instance when the file is over 500 MB, or over 1 GB, it would be good to know.

I’m asking in polls, but your opinion in the comments is welcome too, if you want to complain there’s no problem, I’m cool with it :)

Should I stop adding "www.hentairules.net" in the image names ?

Hello! This post is getting on years, so here's a friendly mention... If all the links are dead, you may try using
THE HENTAIRULES GIGATORRENT
to grab the file you want. You can just pick the stuff you need, it's quick and easy :)

The only problem I have with the image name is that some of the files won't automatically unzip due to the file name being too long. This only happens whenever certain doujins have a long title and the added url kinda screws with the unpacking of the file. Nothing major but it does add another step or two when going to unzip some files. Otherwise I have no problem what you name each .jpg.

I have the above stated problem when I use any Windows based unzipper like winrar. Apparently there's a filename limit. I never have this problem on Linux.

The only gripe I have about uploads is when I unzip them with the Linux archiver tool I get folders within folders auto created when I unzip something.

Ex: Ollie_Stuff.zip becomes \Ollie_SfuffOllie Stuff < all the files in the zip >
(stupid post manager keeps removing the slashes)

It was maddening to have to move files and delete the duplicate folders. To get around this I simply unzip the files using WinRAR inside Wine.

Any archives that can't unzip because of long filenames, I simply unzip using Archive Manager.

had the same issue above but that's easily corrected by just renaming the folder!
not sure what you mean about large archives….
only thing is i wouldn;t mind some re-uploads of Saigado stuff

Oliver AKA The Admin

The total path length is limited on windows OSes with Fat32/NTFS partitions, it's something like 255 characters.

Solution : move your hentai collection closer to the root of your partition ^_^

I don't mind the hentairules in the name. Makes it easy to search for.

What I do mind is the retarded commentary for the file names instead of using the name or shortened name of the actual chapter, doujin or tank.

ParacetJunkie

0/10 for that trolling attempt

Oliver AKA The Admin

Where's the trolling anyway ?

As for my commentary, I'm sorry but it's one of the ways I have fun, one of the reasons I love blogging. I can pick a detail of unexpected importance and choose it as naming pattern, for instance, that will have me smiling for like 30 minutes long. For me, it's worth it ^^;;

2MarsBars

In regards to large file sizes, there doesn't appear to be a size limit for Deposit Files for non-premium accounts when downloading a file, Uploaded and RapidGator however do have limits (so perhaps if a file is in the GBs you might want to split it for those hosts). Sounds like too much work if you ask me though.

Additionally there is a wait between downloads for non-premium users, so if files are split it would probably end up taking longer to retrieve them if they were split.

In regards to 'hentairules' being in the file name – personally I like knowing where the file is from so I find it useful in the folder name, but a little overkill in each image name. Having said all that I've never felt the need to rename the jpgs I get from your site.

@VaizardnoSekai

It's 10GB, a premium account can upload 10GB per file max and free users can download them and the max speed of a free user used to be 250kb/s for me at least has a premium i get +4mb/s

Oliver AKA The Admin

Oh shit, you're right, I had forgotten there was a limite on the downloader's side with RG and perhaps UL! O_o

That would be reason to split the files below the 1GB size, then…

Actually, one thing about your naming scheme I never understood is why you use underscore instead of spaces in the file names.

Oliver AKA The Admin

For spaces, NOPE. They're a pain in the ass.
There are many situations when a space in a name is bad.
For web uploading, depending on the URL and the server hosting, it will not work ( sure I can add percent 20 thingy, but damn it it's more complication), for instance.

It's just like the bad numbering only recognized by, like, half of the image viewers on the market :
file 0.
file 1

file 9
file 10
file 11

NOPE: instead go for 01, 02… 09, 10…

It's not in hentai that it caused me the most numerous difficulties, but it's stayed a habit. File names must follow a strict structure devoid of spaces and in which the total number of characters should not vary.
Sorry to be anal about it ^^

(and, yeah, sometimes I rename files against this rule, like for pics that I joined after the renaming, or for lately added variations, I'm anal about the topic but not entirely psychologically rigid :D )

If I had to choose, I am cool with whatever names you want to use. And I am also on a fast connection, so large files are fine. :D

That said, whatever is easiest and most convenient for you works for me.

Oliver AKA The Admin

I'm not going to change my ways in a direction that makes me lose more time, but if I can tweak my habits in a way that's better for people, then I can think of it :)

format

for question 1 – name the files how you like, you’re the one sharing and publicizing them but it’s not like you are trying to take credit for translating them, you always link sources.

for 2 – i’m not against large files from torrents or resumable places but from experience free users of file sharing sites regularly get cut-off mid download on large files. i dislike multi-part archives but for anything 500mb+ i’d rather it split into 3 so i can download 1 chunk from each of the 3 sharing sites you use.

cheers as always for sharing !

Once you always give smaller versions of image files when they are big, I cannot see the need of splitting large ones. Actually, people who have problems with big files will opt for the the smaller versions. Even I, having a fibre connection, prefer smaller versions. I really don't see the utility of bigger files.

Splitting big video files, on the other hand, may seem interesting.

thatguy
thatguy

the problem i have with your naming convention is that your site comes before the page number and in the image viewer that i use, i can't see the page i want to scroll to with one hand. I have to pause and resize the window. first world problems i know

Oliver AKA The Admin

Tried the F2 shortcut to rename files ? It tells you the name of the currently open file…

Umbal

The only annoying thing for me are the added files in the archive (banner, this files come from). I don`t know how many of those I have deleted over the years. But i guess they are a necessity (although i never understood the whole "original poster" thingy)

What i DO love is the way you name the folders (artist, name, if uncensored or just single chapters) and the way the single files are named (my old ACDSee can`t handle 1,10,100 ). That`s not a given. I hate it when they don`t add the artist name and these *bleep* .. motherf..*bleep* subfolders you have to click trough individually… yuck!
Naming each pic after the chapter they belong to is way too tedious and is not necessary imo. i just click one and skip through them anyway. The "hentairules" is at the end of the folder name so it doesn`t get in the way.
Also the recompressed versions are sooooo good. Don`t ever stop doing that.

As for long files: If you have a crappy connection you have to start them all over if it disconnects, So split archives are better for those people. However I have no idea how much longer it takes to make/upload split archives, guess it`s not worth it in the end. But i don`t download them anyway because they take way too much disk space (2GB for a one hour movie…WTF?!)

Oliver AKA The Admin

Hugs for ACDSee, yeah.

If that can console you, you may have noticed I removed the added files from my archives (banner and link file) in 2015, now only keeping the text file :)

kkai

I really appreciate that you name your shares (the directories, not the files) consistently. I even wrote a script to rename them to my own naming scheme and that is only possible because you have always been so consistent with yours. I thank you so much for that.

Oliver AKA The Admin

Woah O_o

I'm glad, then ^^

As a collector, I also rely on correctly named folders.
I never understood the "hype-ish" ways or naming folders.Like sorting first by scanlation group, or first by media of publication. Or even with the addition of special characters like brackets in the beginning.
How can we hope to easily find contents with patterns like that ?!?

tzitzimine
tzitzimine

I really like the "hentairules" bit on the name because it makes easier for me to sort my files and, well, I've grown fond of it.

As for larger files, having to download multiple files becomes a chore with ease. If anything I rather have torrents for massive collections.

LavaPants
LavaPants

I don't have a problem with the name including the &ldquo ;www.hentairules.net” maybe you should change it to "hentairules” just to short it but that's not a problem. What I find annoying is the banner, specially when it's the first image in the file, even worse when there are two banners, one outside and one inside the folder, the readme and the .url are enough to identify where the file came from.

I just made this account to give my opinion but now that I have the opportunity I want to thank you Oliver for this awesome site, I hope you keep up the good work and wish you luck in everything.

Oliver AKA The Admin

Your opinion is appreciated, LavaPants (lol at the nickname, nicely found ^^).

That should cheer you up, since 2015 I've stopped adding banner and url files to my zips, now there's only the text file.

That text file has to stay, though, as it is not only something helpful and informative, this is ALSO something I use for internal server operations. To be more accurate, I'm keeping a copy of the zips of my shares in a private section of my server, and it's these copies that I send to the file hosts for uploading, it's simpler and faster that way.
Sometimes, I want to reupload a file, but I find that the file host who deleted it has banned its MD5 hash. In that case, I can run a server routine to update my zips with a slightly different content for the text file. And then, it's magic, the MD5 is now different and the zip file isn't banned anymore :D

LavaPants
LavaPants

Thanks for answering Oliver. I feel so dumb! I haven't realized that you stopped using the Banner for the newer releases, maybe because I download the new stuff along with old shares to complete my collection, anyways I really appreciate it.

I have always wondered how you kept your backups, that's a clever way to keep the links up.

PositronicPimp
PositronicPimp

Since you're listening to quips'n'gripes, I only have one really: the hentairules.txt files. It's just an annoying extra to delete every time I "7Zip‣ Extract Here". The main txt file inside the actual folder is fine, it's just that other one outside of the main folder that's just utterly pointless every time I extract from the zips.

PositronicPimp

Also: LOVE those recompressed versions! Really helps out us 10-yr-old PC users who still have stock 150GB-HDD's!

Oliver AKA The Admin

Meanwhile, I bought Western Digital shares and am watching their stock value rise ;)

Oliver AKA The Admin

Ah, sorry about that, Pimp (^^), this is precisely something that I cannot change as things are.

I'll copy-paste an answer I wrote just above :

The issue I have with the naming of files is that if the file path/destination is too long, it makes renaming/unzipping files and moving them a pain.
As for split files, it doesn't really matter to me since this site doesn't usually have files that large anyways, but I could imagine using the same filehosts to download files could be inconvenient if you want to download other files (no parallel downloads, delay in file sharing site until you can download the next one, etc.). I hope you're not referring to your compressed file sizes though, those I love <3.

Oliver AKA The Admin

Nope, my compressed files are cool, I was indeed referring to movies and such.

For the too long paths, sadly, the only real solution is to decide on a location closer to the root of your partition.

The addition of "hentairules" in the folder name and image only makes a small additional number of letters, I also don't add "hentairules" for the really long titles, but that won't change that some titles are already ridiculously long by themselves.
Really, the only working solution is an extraction closer to the disk's root. I eventually did things that way me too…

DeltaOblivion
DeltaOblivion

Time for me to add my 2 cents: honestly I don't think you have to change the way things are IMAO. But I do know how you feel; been doing the same routine for years and then one day, you question if everyone if comfortable with the process you always deliver. I've been there a few times myself as well as many others and all we want is a simple reply from everyone: continue on as always or change a few things. But as I see from the results after I placed my vote on both polls: Not everyone (including myself) wants things to change.B)

EeeJay
EeeJay

I voted in favor of removing the web address from the folder & file names. It adds a LOT of clutter if you have a folder full of favourite downloads & makes it difficult to zero in on a particular title. Keep the numbering & other parts of the file name tho'. Sometimes they are quite silly. :)

Cris

No sofar no problem for me.
a) i need artist and bookname in the archive.
b) i a fat in resources too

I can rename stuff automatically, i even can fish out stuff like readmes and urls from an archive via shellscripts and tools.
And i am stuffed with 100Mbit cable and around 20TB diskspace or so. I do not even care for reduced sizes of archives.
i a way i liked you versions better than some of tadanohito (who stopped translation, to bad) who only put the title in the names.

I have other problems:
How to archive gazillions of raw and translated Hentai manga? Should i collect all? artist – Filename directories stop working since 4TB hads are to small, should i switch to a database?
Should i stop, since i do not have the time and the serenity to read this stuff?

Alexandrine Library
Alexandrine Library

20Tb HD? I am envious. Where can I find that?

As to not having time to read everything, neither have I (and there lots of things I do not download, as incest, rape, lesbian…) but who cares? I keep downloading them (and not only porn, by the way).

I was unable to understand what you said about filename directories stopping working? Could you please clarify? Thanks.

Oliver AKA The Admin

Well, you can simply go for a NAT storage in which the disks constitute a virtual partition of virtually endless dimension.

I advise against a database conception, it would eat away more of your time for no actual (as in : in the real world) benefits.

Lastly: if you don't have anymore the serenity to read stuff, yes, you should stop.
Limit your activity to the extent of what you can enjoy, anything more than that is a pointless waste of your time and resources :)
I'm serious, it would be best for you.

Alexandrine Library
Alexandrine Library

Your advise makes sense. The problem is that I always download things with the honest intention of reading everything, but I cannot be that long at home. I believe you understand the problem: I have to work and entertain my girlfriend in real life as well (in short, problems everyone has).

I am still waiting for Netronix or Onyx or Pocketbook to release their continually promised 13.3in ereaders, and then I will be able to read everywhere (at least what is not porn, I mean :) ).

ComicReader

It sounds like I'm in a minority of users that uses a comic reader application (CDisplay Ex at the moment, lacking the will to find something better), but because of that I wish you would leave the file names plain like "001". But any file naming format works just so long as it consistently puts the hentairules.jpg banner (and other files that aren't part of the original comic) at the beginning or end of the file list when sorting. Making the sort order consistent is why after downloading a file from your site, I extract the zip, rename the files to make the comic's pages come first, and then rezip the reordered files with a cbz extension so the file can be viewed with a comic reader application.

And if people don't keep the zips, you might consider compressing the files with 7zip. It doesn't seem to make collections of images much smaller, but 7z files are consistently smaller than zip and rar files that contain the same files, and so I think it's a good format for file transfers / sharing. As a long-term file storage format, I'm not so sure: I could never find anything solid about restoring corrupted 7zip archives. That made me think that the 7zip algorithm is tuned for high compression at the expense of fault tolerance, and so I stopped making cb7 files and returned to storing comics in cbz files.

Alexandrine Library
Alexandrine Library

Two suggestions, if you are looking for comic readers: HoneyView for Windows and Perfect Viewer for Android.

By the way, the best file naming for ANY comic reader, ebook readers included (and I am not referring to Kindle, obviously, once it is absolutely useless for comics), is naming the files in sequential numbers before anything else (if you are going to write anything, do it AFTER the number, something like "001 – Shiwasu no Okina – Aibuka – hentairules.jpg", although such a name is already scandalously big, in my (not so) humble opinion. :)

ComicReader
ComicReader

Thanks for the suggestions! I tried HoneyView out since Windows is my platform.

HoneyView is clean and fast compared to CDisplay Ex (which appears to load the entire zip into memory before displaying the first image). I got it set up to view 2 pages oriented right-to-left like you need (or want) to read manga with, and I bound the left and right arrow keys to move to next and previous images. I couldn't reverse the next/prev image buttons in the bottom control bar, however, so I just turned that bar off.

It does lack certain features that I like from CDisplay Ex (like the JSON history it keeps of the mangas you've read and other little interface niceties), so I'm going to stick with CDisplay Ex for the time being. But if CDisplay Ex continues down the monetization path like other modern apps, I'll keep this around to switch to when it becomes unbearable to use.

So thanks again for the suggestions: I'm glad to have found out about HoneyView!

Oliver AKA The Admin

Alexandrine, if I may ask, is there a sound reason for placing the numbers before the rest in a picture's name ?

Alexandrine Library
Alexandrine Library

E-readers like Kobo, for example, make a mess with the file names if they do not follow a sequential numeric order. The same happens to several Windows-based comic readers.

I refused to give my money to JetBook because their colour e-reader demands us to convert the files to PDF, what is ridiculous. I believe the devices are supposed to serve the user, not the opposite (and especially when such a device is anything but cheap).

My problem with Kobo GLO, besides the reduced screen (what is sometimes irritating), is that I have to rename files if the are listed alphabetically, once the reader behaves in a schizophrenic way if the images are not listed numerically.

Oliver AKA The Admin

But then, what would be a proper naming that could please these kinds of devices or reading softwares ?

Is it
numbers-name.extension ?

Is there a hyphen versus underscore difference ?

Something else ?

We're right in the topic of why I made that post in the beginning, Alexandrine, maybe I can bring improvements that won't bother anyone but help a few others like you here :)

Alexandrine Library
Alexandrine Library

As far as I have noticed, starting with the numbers is good enough. Using hyphens, underscores or spaces is indifferent (at least, I cannot remember any problem about those points).

That said, numbers-name.extension would be perfect.

hero_luka
hero_luka

I also never unzip my doujinshi / manga, due to the fact that it's really extra work managing the files and it takes more space when uncompressed. So it doesn't matter to me how the files are named so long as they can be read in an ascending order.

I use Quivi as my go-to reader however it's not compatible with certain archive types, such as .7z. It is not as good as CDisplay Ex but I like how the UI is designed.
It has not been updated however and the developer is not responding. But it works fine in Win 8.1

HOWEVER! I do have a gripe with how the files are named and would like to request how they're named.

Right now the most widely used standard is to enclose the circle name in paranthesis, and then the artists name in brackets followed by the name of the doujin, and if possible in paranthesis what the work is trying to parody

For example
(C81) [Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri)] H.SAS 4 (Dead or Alive)

It's a lot more readable and it also falls in line with how most translators name their files, and it saves me having to rename it everytime I save a file.

This way you can easily tell who the work is by and what series it's based on.

ComicReader
ComicReader

Yeah, I looked at Quivi before I settled on CDisplay Ex a few years ago: it was just too much of just an image viewer and not enough of a comic viewer for my tastes, and the lack of updates were worrying as well. What I actually want is an application that's even more specialized as a comic viewer than CDisplay Ex, but I haven't seen anything that fits the bill yet.

And I'm not really a fan of the format:
(C81) [Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri)] H.SAS 4 (Dead or Alive)

but it handles multiple circles and authors well, like this one (in this pack http://www.hentairules.net/2011/04/12/pack-of-3-w
(SC35) [Jouji Mujou, Otona Star (Shinozuka Jouji, Hiuma)] PTO (Persona 3)

But I don't get why the convention is put 1st like that, so for my files I put it in a set of tags {} at the end of the file name. The pattern I'm starting to organize my own files with is "[circles (authors)] title {tags}[2-letter language code] ", like:
[Jouji Mujou, Otona Star (Shinozuka Jouji, Hiuma)] PTO {DJ(Persona 3), SC35}[EN]

Oliver AKA The Admin

(C81) [Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri)] H.SAS 4 (Dead or Alive)

Oh god

I will politely disagree with you on this, Luka.

Sorting is about chosing what your priorities are. Not just in hentai, in ANYTHING.

Here, the first important criteria would be… the presence of an opening parenthesis.
This rules out all possibilities of filtering by first name, by simply typing a keyboard letter while in the list of folders to start with the folders having that first letter.

Moving on, let's imagine this now is
C81) [Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri)] H.SAS 4 (Dead or Alive)

… Seriously ? Is that important to have all comicket #81 releases put together ?
Like, no shit ?
It's more important than to have them sorted by artist ?

That's my own point of view of course, but in my mind, having hentai works sorted by artist is the ONE most important criteria.

Let's reverse c81 and the artist's name, then.

[Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri)] C81) H.SAS 4 (Dead or Alive)

Removing the first bracket to sort by name instead of sorting by brackets.

Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri)] C81) H.SAS 4 (Dead or Alive)

Let us also opt for a universal separator between all fields, something that anyone knowing the CSV files will understand. Goodbye parenthesis, brackets and shit.
My choice of separator is the coma.

Hellabunna (Iruma Kamiri), C81, H.SAS 4, Dead or Alive

NOW, that's becoming something a human can use.

Too long story short : the "scene" has agreen on a SUPER SHITTY naming convention, my naming convention is superior in every regard, so I stick to mine even if I'm going against the majority.

My naming is better.

That said, I don't pretend I didn't make debatable choices.
My personal, debatable, choice, is to give up on C81 and such mentions, because save a very small fraction of the people, nobody will give a flying fuck about which convention a work comes from, and it takes additional characters while most users are on a restricted path length.
I also give up on mentioning what series something is from, because it takes also many characters and not everyone will find it useful.
I also add "hentairules" in the name, which takes characters, but – mind you – that's one of the questions I asked about, if I should continue doing it.

Honestly, my personal preference on these things is really – I don't care.

What I do like most of all is when you resize images to be reasonable. I personally think that anything over 1mb a picture is stupid for manga et al.

I don't realy care if you rename the file like before. I still can extract it, rename it, and compress it. What about people who don't have the time ? If you have time to download hentai, then you must have time to do it

about how you compress, I like with only one file. Because when I download, I can "taste" the hentai I just download. I don't have any premium account and I don't care after I download I must wait a few minute or a hour. Why I don't buy it? because until now I still desperate to pay my internet.

So I realy gratefull that there is someone who realy thinking this problem seriously (or to serious?) which he don't get any reward but a few bucks for beer (CMIIW)

PS: sorry for my rudeness and bad english

As it was said by someone before, “The only annoying thing for me are the added files in the archive (banner, this files come from). I don`t know how many of those I have deleted over the years”. For the rest, it’s fine.

No more banner and url files in , so that should put you at ease at last :)

I would appreciate it if you remove the hentairules from the file names. I've had problems with file names being too long because of it. Its just a hassle and doesn't prevent resharing at all.

As for splitting up the archives, please don't. It will be a giant hassle.

Artix86
Artix86

Well Oliver for me I don't mind adding the hentairules name on the file and regarding the file size it if it is too big like more than 1GB then I think just split like 200mb each.. But so far I don't have any H-Manga I downloaded from your that is more than 1GB..

Oliver AKA The Admin

I was thinking about the movies, essentially, and a few gigapacks.

Dream Shark

About the names, you can continue with that, only pay attention to the name not be too much longer. And the split, I think you can do that with the videos and stuff like that, I guess.

This was so sudden, i guess why… o.Õ

I've been thinking about it for a while, actually, it's just that recent comments made me go and ask openly :)

Sometimes I download a file at another site waiting for you to upload it. Once I have both files your label is a useful way to know which one I want to keep and it helps sorting. I treat it as a warranty seal
On the other hand, I used to hate when you added the .txt file and the banner image

wani_piro
wani_piro

first about file name.

I dont care, because I never extract the zip. i read it with cbr viewer. as long as the page order dont mess up. keep the name. you own the credits for sharing.

second. split more than 750 mb la. into 250 250 250.

I dont have premium la. :D

reddeath68
reddeath68

only thing I would like to see change with the site is more tags for posts such as mention when a story has certain things people may wish to avoid such as ntr, rape, ect. I know sometimes you have tags but other times certain tags can seem to be missing or I could just be missing something.

I'm now adding the tags myself, the previous "add a tag yourself" system was easier on me but got overwhelmed by weird asian bots.
It was also infuriating to see perfectly valid tags removed for no reason, while worthless tons of tags were added.

I hope this new tagging by me is more satisfactory :)

My 2 cents on the matter is as follows –

Keep up with the naming scheme. You've been doing it that way for years, so why stop now? Besides, while I do rename files, I leave that part on it for archival purposes.

I'd prefer larger files to be split, because depositfiles sometimes drops my DL on 500+mb downloads. I have highspeed internet, but no premium account, so I'm subject to slower speeds.

All that said, whatever you do is totally cool with me. You're giving free hentai to lecherous leechers like me, I can't complain.

Voted but really missed the option "Don't care one way or the other" for both of them

I should have thought of it, yeah, that occured to me, but much too late.

In my particular situation, I actually use CDisplay, so I don't need to do the unzip and actually like the name on the files. At the end, it is your own brand. What bothers me is the notes and info from the uploader.txt files that are inside the zip. Those .txt files always prompt before I can actually start reading so they are a bit annoying. If they could be an image, like the HR banner that would be great.

As for the side, I live in Mexico, where internet is awful and expensive, but I do like the quality of your shares. I have the same problems as many other users, that some times I lost the connection to my DF download and I must start all over again. I'm not very fond of the idea of spliting files, but maybe big files (+500MB) should be splited.

At the end, I love your work here and I'll be around for as long as this site lives :3

Oliver. First a note of appreciation for what you do and your time. I don't know how you get enough out of it to justify so much effort, but a lot of us really appreciate it. I personally prefer your "lable" as it helps differenciate your work which I know is typically a better level of content. Also the condensed versions save on the competing space with my anime. As a result of your site, I registered with Uploaded.net so I don't have a problem with space. It isn't a huge amount and it makes things so much easier, whether with deposit files or uploaded. Hopefully it also gives you a bit of return. For those looking for a reader, I've tried a few of the free ones and nothing beats MangaMeeyaCE – I use the Deathwisher version and while it sounds suspect I've never had a problem with it. Cheers.
