A new chapter just got released, is a translation in the works?

Please do not create an account just to bug people about a translation for something you admitted yourself just came out.
Your ban is in the works for 30 days.

I mean would it not be easier to convince others to bring their works here if this was actually a site for yuri works. if het is allowed what does separate this site from mangadex. while nice is subjective there are some very questionable series here so if het is going to be allowed perhaps at least lay out some guidelines for what het gets posted here. Maybe at least having some transparency over the process would reduce some of the unease in this community. Just my 2 cents, don't want to cause you grief its just this place is important to me.

First and foremost, we are not in competition with Mangadex. If people choose to have their work only hosted there, it's unfortunate but not something we're going to fight over.

Secondly, we are not "just" a site for yuri works. We have and always been a site that reflects and represents the kinds of stories that we (the staff who curate it) want to see. Yes, that means primarily yuri works since the history Dynasty is deeply slated in it. But Dynasty also has that same history in non-yuri works. That also means we want to include and actively want to increase our catalogue of yaoi, trans, and other queer stories. Having these stories (including hetrosexual ones) does not detract from the volume of yuri works we have.

There is another kind of "representation" we commit to, and that is allowing those who have trusted us and whom we trust, to host their work and as much of their work as they want to have on the site. Sometimes this will include non-yuri works, and that's okay.

Sometimes our views of things change, sometimes we mature in thought processes. There are representations of ourselves in old Dynasty works that we wouldn't represent now. We do and will update people when we decide to make a large enough decision that affects multiple works across our catalogue.

Kind of disgusting to assume the character is trans because he likes to cross-dress

This comment is inappropriate and very disrespectful towards the people who worked on this release.
Please do not continue to make such posts.

Thanks for the support everyone!! The campaign has managed to pass $5000 which I thought was a lofty goal when we were planning things. Would love to see how far we can go!

Hello all, for Pride Month, we're running a charity drive to benefit The Trevor Project; an organization focused on providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth. And you could win some prizes if you do!

You can find our fundraising page here https://give.thetrevorproject.org/DynastyScans

If you're unaware of why we're doing this, allow me to paraphrase what I said there a bit.

For as long as I've been around at dynasty-scans, we've never asked for or taken donations from readers. And that's not going to change, but we are very open to the idea of asking you to donate to great charitable causes.

Very often LGBTQ youth find our site and grow to find comfort in being able to read stories that relate to them, give them inspiration or goals, or simply make them happy to see that people like them can find love (most of the time).

While the works on our site can give a boost, sometimes LGBTQ youth need much much more to face the real world they live in. That's where The Trevor Project can help, providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services when people are in their darkest hours.

We hope that if you have the means, you'll think of supporting our campaign here to provide some funds to these important services. Since we recognize that the scope of The Trevor Project is limited to North America, we also encourage people to seek out more localized organizations to donate to in their part of the world. Here are some other organizations that we looked at that people feel deserve some support as well if you have the means.

Trans Lifeline (NA) - https://translifeline.org/
Offers a grassroots hotline and minor financial assistance to trans people in crisis

Center for Black Equality (Global) - https://centerforblackequity.org/
Works to achieve equality and social justice for Black LGBTQIA+ communities

Mermaids (UK) - https://mermaidsuk.org.uk/
Supports transgender, nonbinary and gender-diverse youth and their families

MindOut (UK) - https://mindout.org.uk/
A mental health service run by and for lesbians, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer people

Okra Project (US) - https://www.theokraproject.com/
A collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People

Kaleidoscope Trust (UK) - https://www.kaleidoscopetrust.com/
Focused on fighting for the human rights of LGBT+ people across the Commonwealth

Like I say on the page itself, sharing the campaign is hugely important, so if y'all could share it even if you're unable to contribute financially, it would still be a great help! If you can do so while also contributing, that's even better.

On the goal, we tried to keep it somewhat realistic considering we've never tried to run anything this organized in the past, but am hopeful we'll be able to reach it in a month. We're still working on details, but we are looking to offer a sweepstakes if we're able to complete our goal. (Something like art books or manga) Just so you know, every $5usd donated will be considered 1 prize entry. (so $15usd is 3 entries for example). You also have to at least give your email to be entered. Anonymous donations can't be tracked, sorry.

If you have any questions about this fundraiser, please feel free to ask here or on our Discord in the #charity-drive channel.

Thank you.

Orange Pekoe is handling the status of the works involved. For matters such as this, please contact us first, rather than taking anything actions by yourself.

Especially since the doujin was like here for years but somehow wasn't a problem till now + it's been on feature for 5 days now and someone had to put it on featured so.

I already explained this to you on Discord, but I'm repeating it for others.

It's not that it "suddenly" became an issue, it's always been an issue, just that it's been one we've failed to address properly
What we (dynasty) view as acceptable has changed, but we've lagged behind in reflecting that in what's on the reader
But what will and will not be removed is something we need to look at, and ultimately it's still our decision

Allowing it to be featured, and for several days when a bunch of us already knew about it is a failure on our part. There is no defense for us to put up for that.

This reminds me of the controversy with removing "Gone with the Wind" from HBO MAX.

Simpsons' Apu-controversy likewise comes to mind. It's related to anything ending in -phobia being measured by second and third parties' perceptions and "offense taken" rather than the intention of the agent behind the original incident.

This thread literally started with someone taking offense to it, so please do not continue this re-treading of indignation for when we don't want this term being used.

This is not open for debate.

Just want to add, that you're right to call us out on this, as it's definitely a failing on our part to allow such a thing to slip through.

Because of the archival nature of the reader, there are certainly more older works that require review and probable removal from the site that have the same failings as pointed out. We have never intended to be a complete archive of works, and will curate things to be the reader we want to read ourselves.

Not related to Dynasty, but something to be aware of:
It appears that MangaDex's database has been hacked. While they're receiving heavy traffic now making it hard/impossible to do, it is highly recommended you change your password (and email if that's an option) used there. The use of a password manager and 2-factor authentication is highly recommended.

Hi there, please know that yuri is not a requirement to be uploaded! You can scanlate whatever you want.

However I would suggest starting a barebones blog to post your work somewhere for easier access so that it can be reviewed after requesting an upload like stated above.

Good luck with scanlating, we have a channel in our discord for people to ask scanlating questions if you should have any.

Wait isn't it your job to shut down people who read something like this and REALLY want to discuss the parts with which they feel discomfort? Like stand the fuck back, Imma talk about this shit with goddamn passion!

I suggest you sit the fuck down yourself.

Wow really?

Yes, I'm telling you to drop it and walk away from this discussion. Is that not clear?

No it's not really clear at all. Do you have a point or just acting a tough guy because you can?

Yes, the point is that is that it's not acceptable to act that way towards a mod here. Is that clear, or do you have some more incredulous comments?

In what way was what I said (act lol) unacceptable? Are you fucked in the head or something?
Wow you are a real fucking piece of work you know that? Do you act this way in real life? Just holy shit I actually feel bad for you in a way. Seriously though, does this kind of exchange ever work out the way you hope? I mean you here you go rolling up on someone acting like a fucking thug and this is supposed to engender some kind of positive response on my part? Fucking wow. All you had to do was show the smallest amount of respect and I would have been fine. Good luck with life tough guy.

It was suppose to make you shut up, which the ban will now do. Show you some respect when you show none already? lmao cya

IMO this news doesn't really belong on Dynasty regardless if it involves the LGBT community or not, but I understand the push for donating to the cause.

I decide what belongs here and what doesn't.

It's Ramadan. Any sinful behaviour is forbidden, as any practicing Muslim will tell you. This guy was not one. This line of conversation will stop now.

You said no posting links, but if someone found another doujin from him, would it be okay for the person to make a thread to just mention their names to those who might want it? If EvilDevil didn't make this thread I wouldn't know that he had translated the HomuSaya using other name.

There are other resources for finding that out, the point of this decision is to not give him the exposure he desires. It's unfortunate but at the moment such things will not be permitted. The situation may change in the future, but that's unlikely.

At the moment, no. We won't upload anything from him because we'd be removing any credits he puts and it would just cause a shitstorm. His wordpress link doesn't link to anything containing releases or previous works, just more ranting. Don't make any more topics asking for these releases, or future ones. No posting links. If we decide otherwise in the future, you'll know.
