Well that's random. From my understanding, both the cleaned raws and the translation were lost, so I wouldn't hold my breathe on any updates in the future.

This post is a bit futile, but if anyone else out there is intending to edit arcrenciel's remaining translations, or those non-arcrenciel translations saved on the Wayback Machine, please get in touch with me so we can coordinate a bit. I'd really hate to demotivate anyone by repeating work unnecessarily!

The discussion continued afterwards because Kirin started a debate about it before immediately saying that they would not start a debate about it. It was an attempt to get the last word in and make it so that only their viewpoint was heard.

Given the deteriorating tenor of discourse, I think both of you had plenty of opportunities after that point to disengage.

It was fine until Alice popped in after the discussion had already reached its natural conclusion, with people actually agreeing, and unnecessarily shut down the topic by endorsing one of the sides of the argument. If she was legitimately interested in ending the discussion, it doesn't make sense to include such an incendiary comment saying that the other side is right (after, I might add, that we managed to come to agreement otherwise). That is what I was disappointed with.

Thank you for explaining. Account deletion can take a while, but take care.

Any further posts about China, Their Story, or any other topic irrelevant to this manga's thread will be removed. Any posts after Alice Cheshire's have been removed.


I think Kirin said it best quite a few posts ago

I'm not starting a debate about this because it'll inevitably spiral out of control and get shut down

I'm not sure why the discussion continued afterwards.

Somebody made a baseless accusation in the context of China and yuri manga, which is relatively on-topic

This is on topic "to the site," but hardly to this manga. The average reader of this particular forum is likely to glaze over these posts, given their apparent lack of relevance in this thread. Worse, they're especially unlikely to post any new or interesting comment when seeing walls of text about politics. Debates of this nature are better kept in the Cafe, the Their Story thread, or in a new thread meant for the sake of discussing these points.

It's a bit unfair to say that people can make false claims about a country in random discussion threads but that they're not allowed to be rebutted

This is not what happened. You were allowed to engage freely with three separate individuals on your points of contention. Your earlier posts were left fully intact, for all to see. I'm quite certain that in this instance, every side was given a "fair" hearing for their views.

You're welcome to get in touch if you wish to discuss any of this further.

This unexpected update, combined with this slightly unexpected serial, have made my world a better place! Time to go support the author!

So a top that wants to be a bottom and a bottom that wants to be a top and both fail miserably at it.

I love it.

You nailed the whole story. Amazing.

Well, that's unexpected. Thanks for sharing, I think? I'll pass it on to the more relevant parties.

I'm not sure how recently you mean. Though, it does seem likely that as the internet has become more visibly diverse & politicized, debates about those issues have grown in a lot of unexpected places. Surely Dynasty is no exception, and I doubt this trend will be stopping anytime soon. (Probably goes doubly in 2020 due to all the stuff that happened there)

It was mirroring the post above it, using "by" as a means of denoting who originally wrote the post. As with the original post here, others are noted for their contributions next to the scripts they made. That said, I'm sure Alice won't mind too much if it's slightly less clear that she wrote the post originally, so I've amended the header and following line.

Hey I think there was a small mistake in chp 7, the last two pages of chp 6 are also at the end of chp 7

Thank you kindly! Fixed.

I'm glad that ended well.

As you can see, we've killed off a bunch of stickies and gone through a slight reorganisation in order to (hopefully) provide a cleaner and more organised experience. I just wanted to reiterate here that we're always open to any feedback whatsoever, no matter the nature.

If possible, I would like to retire this thread in about one month. You're welcome to keep posting fixes here if you so choose, but please consider posting them in the FAQ, Help & Suggestions thread thread instead (or, as well).

Also I noticed while reviewing that some of these never made it to the site for whatever reason. I'll take care of them soon. Thank you all for your contributions.

Frequently Asked Questions, Bugs, Etc.

Bugs

  1. When using an adblocker or Ghostery, the Lists feature may not work as intended. You may disable those services on the site - we don't run ads and never will. If you wish to keep those services enabled, opening the desired list button as a new tab will allow chapters to be added to a list.

  2. It is possible for new accounts to get caught in the spam filter when they use the "Preview Post" button too frequently on a single post, or use certain phrases. If you have trouble with this, please contact us and we'll get you sorted.

  3. In rare circumstances, the blacklist / whitelist feature can have unexpected consequences. Please contact us if you have troubles with this feature.

  4. For technical reasons, the linkback from a forum thread to its linked manga is unavailable when not logged into the site. This is not a bug.


FAQ

How do I delete my account?

Please post in the Help thread, and we will take care of you.

I know a manga or image that should be on the site, how do I upload?

You may use the Upload Request feature - also available in the dropdown menu by your username - for any work you believe belongs on the site, and we will review and (if approved) add the suggestion when possible. Please note in your request if you are the artist/commissioner/translator, etc. as this will speed up our process significantly (you do not need to do this if your username makes this obvious).

Will I receive feedback on my upload requests / tag suggestions?

Unfortunately due to a variety of factors, we are unable to easily respond to individual upload requests or tag suggestions. If your request has not made it onto the site within a few weeks, the reasons are likely in the following order: a) will be added at a later time, b) was deemed too low quality to add to the site, c) we were not able to acquire permission to host, d) the work is licensed, or e) there simply exists too much competition and not enough attention (last point applies only to images/1-page comics).

Please keep in mind that this response applies only to requests made after December, 2020. Many older requests will be fulfilled in the coming weeks and months, with no impact on newer requests being fulfilled as well.

This story is missing a tag!

We do our best to be clear and consistent in our tagging choices, but we do miss things from time to time. Tag requests or discussion within a chapter's thread are acceptable to a point, but these will not be immediately sent to us for review. Please use the tag suggestion feature shown below if you feel an entry is missing something. If it is not replied to in a timely manner, you may wish to post the suggestion in the Help thread.

Can I search for two tags at once?

Yes, you may. Click the search field and hit enter, or use this link.

Is it possible to search the forum?

You cannot search the forum directly, but you may use Google, by typing "site:dynasty-scans.com" (remove the quotation marks) at the beginning of your search. Or use this template.

Why is my favourite series still on the Reader even though it was licensed?

Any work licensed in the US will be removed at the discretion of the publisher(s) and scanlation team(s) involved. Works that lack a scanlation until after the manga has been licensed are not typically uploaded, but exceptions may be made.

Is it possible to sort manga by rating/views/etc.?

No, we do not offer public data of that nature. You may wish to visit the Recommendations Thread for recommendations.

I want to be more involved in the community!

We have an off-topic thread for any use, the Dynasty Cafe, and we also have a Discord server, as previously mentioned. Feel free to drop into either any time!


Site Navigation

Certain chapters will be in a long strip format rather than a page-by-page format. Please use the Resize button in the top-right of the screen to read these.

The site has an in-built Lists feature to help you keep track of what you're reading and categorise it as desired. This feature may be accessed on desktop and mobile, as shown below.

Site Userscripts


If you'd like your userscript added to the OP, just make a post about it in the Help thread.

Old userscript thread, made by Alice Cheshire.


All userscripts require Tampermonkey to use, both for Chrome and Firefox.


Dynasty Thingifier (Author: Alice Cheshire)

Adds a lot of general options for the forums.


Dynasty Gallery Viewer (Author: cyricc)

This is a userscript that allows you to browse images on this site much more easily using a modal image viewer with next/previous buttons, similar to Instagram et al.


Dynasty Mark Read (Author: cyricc)

This is a userscript that greys out chapters marked as Read when viewing chapter lists.


Dynasty Title Rethingifier (Author: Alice Cheshire)
This user script simply changes up how titles are ordered.

With script:
Without script:


Dynasty Tagifier (Author: gwennie-chan)
Last updated: September 17, 2020

Features

Forum Tagger

Forum Tagger scans forum posts and image comments looking for Tag objects, checks if the tags are valid, and, if so, turns them into clickable links to each tag's page. (If you have the script installed, this Yuri tag should be linked.)
(For the nerds, it does this dynamically pulling and parsing Dynasty's JSON and then scanning all <code> elements.)

Tag Suggestions Switcher (TSS)

TSS puts a controller bar on the tag suggestions status page (link requires account) so users can select the type of tag suggestions (Approved, Rejected, or Pending) the page displays, whether a single type, a mixture, or all of them.

Forum Stats Number Shortener (FSNS)

FSNS converts the stats numbers on the Forum navigation pages for views and posts to automatically shorten, round anything over 1000 and insert the appropriate abbreviation ("K" or "M") after the shortened number.


Dynasty Tag Hider (Author: cyricc)

Allows you to hide tags that you choose, preventing them from being displayed on all chapter listings. Some tags can be rather spoilery in nature so this helps with avoiding that. Currently only tags that appear on the Tags page can be hidden (i.e. not doujins or pairings). This functionality may be added in the future.

This is not a tag blacklister. It only hides tags from being shown in the tag list of a chapter or series.

Forum Post Formatting - Basic Markdown Tutorial by Thiron

Old Markdown Thread.

This post is made to help Dynasty Forum users understand how they can format their messages.
The formatting is based on Markdown language, though there are some small differences - for example, you cannot insert HTML code blocks, but can mark spoilers.
The syntax is relatively simple. You can just quote this post to see how it's made.


This is a header. It starts with #


This is a 4th level header. It starts with ####


There are some horizontal lines here...just write *** at start of line to make it.


This is a code block. It starts with 4 spaces

This is code span. We usually use it for tags. It's surrounded with `.
Take notice that ` and ' are different symbols, you need the one that's on the left of 1 key on standard keyboard.


  • This is a list
  • You need to start each line with * and a space

  1. This list is numbered.
  2. Start each line with number period space
  3. Number order doesn't actually matter, shown list will be same

This is a quote. Start it with > and space


This is a nested quote

Just add more > for extra levels


Quotes may also be divided

By adding - between them


This is a spoiler. It is surrounded with == . Mouseover to see the text inside. Please actually use it when talking about some important plot points.


This text is in italic. It is surrounded with either * or _ This text is in bold. It is surrounded with double symbols, either ** or __.


This is a hyperlink. You need to surround link text in [], and link target in ().
Also, if you insert raw http address (starts with either http or www) or e-mail, it will become a hyperlink
http://dynasty-scans.com
random@email.not.really

Image is similar, but you need to start with ! And text doesn't really matter.


Don't forget to add some spaces or lines to separate elements - and to remove them for correct formatting. If you mess up, you can get stuff like this:
** this block won't become bold because of extra spaces ** But this one will


Please tell me if I forgot something, I'll add it.
Don't forget to Preview your post to be sure.
Repeating what I've already said, just click on quote to see how this post was made.
