The migration has completed. There shouldn't be anything different, but do let us know if somehow there is an issue.

Yes, 01:00 in 24-hour time is equivalent to 1:00 AM in 12-hour time.
I have no answer as to whether this migration will improve the site's uptime.

The web address shall remain the same. It is the data and database that is being moved over.

GOD, the one who hosts the website for us without cost to us, needs to migrate the site over to a new host.

The migration will begin around Monday, July 27th 01:00 UTC. I was going to convert these to easier times for everyone but then I would just be listing all the time zones for the world when instead you can just take a grand ol' visit to Google-sensei.

As for the estimated time it will take I'll update this post if I get a clear estimate but for now I can say that it will take several hours at the minimum.

Edit: The estimate provided is roughly 3 - 6 hours. I would, personally, lean towards the 6 just so that anything less would be a bonus.

A ban on the forums would not restrict you from accessing the reader. So even if your ISP happened to change your IP to a banned one you would still be able to access the site. What's most likely the case is a routing issue from our site to your home. which the VPN of yours can help solve since it's taking a different path.
There's nothing we can do on our end to assist.

You can put in an upload request with the description that it's an original work by you and any other information you may have (such as if you have a pixiv or something). Alternatively you may contact one of us (DpF, OrangePekoe, or me) on discord instead about it.

If y'all are just going to spend pages of text in spoiler bars, perhaps move it to a fresh thread specifically for spoilers for this series?

As far as I'm aware nhentai is not effected so they're likely not in the Netherlands. I could definitely be wrong though.

Pornpocalypse is apparently here everyone: https://boards.4chan.org/h/thread/5411286
To all those who visit Sadpanda (ExHentai) or any of its connecting websites/forums/minigames you've probably heard by now that it is going to be shutting down in 6 months. However before the shutdown they will be removing lolicon and shotacon material within 6 hours or so as per the Netherlands law coming into effect (with their servers there and all). Do not post any of that on discord obviously, but do grab anything you would miss before it could possibly be gone if any of the risqué material is up your alley. If you've never heard of them then by all means keep doing what you're doing unabated.

Sure. we'll upload it. You can either put it in upload request (referring back to this post in it) or just PM it to one of us on discord/IRC and we can throw it up.
It'll have to be something we figure out on our end how we want it presented, but that's not something you need to worry about!

I enjoyed this quite a lot.
Also, should this be tagged as ecchi?

I had meant to tag it as ecchi, whoops.

It'll be subtext for now, but until there's more chapters out it'll either get removed or replaced with yuri or whatever fits.

The series is already licensed by Seven Seas, even if they haven't caught up yet (after all, they only released the first volume in February this year). If signs show that they're never going to bother past the first volume, then certainly it'll go up quite late. Not to sandbag the efforts of /u/ guys though.

Please support the official release (of volume 1 so far at least!) http://www.sevenseasentertainment.com/series/beauty-and-the-beast-girl/

@RuneHex That series was on here until Seven Seas licensed it. As always, please support the official release.

To all current or prospective game programmers out there:
Itch.io is hosting a yuri game jam (of which I've learned two weeks late... give or take 3 years) and submissions are due at the end of October. Give it a go if you can and spread the joy of LGBTQIA.

The site is hosted on a server that GOD on Rizon lets us use at no charge. Without him, we'd be paying out of our pockets or something to keep things going.
The site itself was coded by omnscient0 as a passion project several years ago. At this point he feels that there's not much need for improvement or changing of the site structure in any fashion, last I heard.

So the best thing you can do now is just continue reading and exploring what's out there. If there's any good stuff that we're totally oblivious to you can let us know through the upload requests. Thanks!

The better option would be to try to help scanlate it yourself or just leave the series alone in the hopes that someone else picks it up. Contact emails should not be used for update requests not only because it's rude, but because basically any answer they give you will be unsatisfactory anyway.
If you happen to know anyone with interest in working on it, then by all means give them a poke instead.

While I personally have not really interacted with the members of Yuri Project all that much, if at all, they've certainly been a significant part of my life over the years. I'm incredibly saddened and I wish nothing but the best for Ana's spouse and the Yuri Project community.

Procyon's post reads as thus:

While I'm still trying to get in touch with her spouse, I feel I should delay no further the sad announcement that

Ana, known here as Phyis, has passed away on 27 March, 2018.

Ana mentioned to friends and in messages here that she was struggling with her health, she passed away at home with her wife.

Ana took over running Yuriproject in 2013 with technical expertise and a very active role in scanlating manga. In my communications with her we talked mostly about hobbies and it was obvious she was a person who was quick to become deeply passionate in her interests in a variety of areas. She was someone who cared for the people that came to rely on her and worked hard even if only few would notice.

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, those of you anxious to see the continuing story of Fluttering Feelings will no doubt be saddened to learn that the author has passed away from cancer. News of her illness sprang up when the indefinite hiatus begun two years ago in a blog post after she had already undertaken steps to combat the cancer.
You may read a translation of her obituary at Halmoni's tumblr.

Thank you all for your very fervent discussions on our forum, IRC, and discord. And thank you SSamba for your compelling stories.

Honestly, I have no clue. We could certainly try it though if you have sample images.
