How does Dynasty maintain itself? Where does it get the funds to keep servers running? Who's maintaining the site? How do you guys protect yourselfs from copyright issues?

I've been using this site for years, and I'm just amazed that it's still running and so well. Love y'all~♡

The servers are maintained by a benefactor known as GOD. The site is maintained by a small group of folks, with the daily experience primarily handled by myself and drpepperfan. On the forum side you'll also see Alice Cheshire and Nezchan doing heavy lifting. We're all just volunteers who do this for our own satisfaction. We comply with any requests that license holders have, and have been very grateful for the level of grace that (most) license holders have granted us. I think that answers everything? Love you too, take care.

Yes, we know the search function is broken. Let's just pretend it's a really meta April Fools' joke and leave it at that. Yes, tag suggestions are currently down as well, and we're aware of this too. (Seriously, we're looking into it as quickly as we can.)

Thanks, gone.

After a bit of spring cleaning, the search function and tag suggestions are back in working order! This should also address some of the slowdown and minor errors we've experienced over the last week or so. Please let us know if you have any other issues with the site.

Can we have Strawberry Fields Once Again marked as licensed, please? Also, the original is completed, but the translation isn't, so the status should be... whatever is appropriate in that case...

Marked. We use the statuses to (primarily) refer to the scanlation status. I guess I should add these to the tag discussing thing in the start of this thread...

I have a post caught in the spam filter. Is this where I contact Dynasty?
Edit: seems to have gone through now

JK-chan and Her Male Classmate's Mom pg 122 seems to be missing?

Can we have a "walk-in" tag for posts like this?
I also want once again to request a tag for the manga Go For It, Nakamura! since it gets parodied often.

I dont know if this is the right place to put this, but "next page" is broken on Firefox mobile (I'm on ff 87). Normally I tap the right side of the page for "next page" but this no longer works. Previous page still works however.

Is it me or are there more and more really bad ecchi/hentai mangas on this site and less and less true yuri?
To each his/her own I suppose. I have nothing against ecchi/hentai, although the “quality” (I know, plot doesn’t count, does it? And art? Who cares about art?)
I miss true love/friendship stories (yes, sex-scenes included, I am not citrused) that are not centered on fan-service for peeping toms, whoever they identify to.

Too bad for this bot, which took a while to edit in its link, that I was reminded about it just now.

... by this brand new user cut-n-pasting from a previous post in the same thread. No link yet, but I'm sure there will be.

To be honest, I'm not sure if there's a question or suggestion here. We upload basically whatever is Yuri that is translated sufficiently well to meet our standards (for translation). If you're noticing some change, it seems to me that would be on the translator side, which has little to do with us. I don't believe this is a real trend but I don't read everything on the site, so I won't say more than that.

^That second one has revealed its true colours now.


I've got a request.

Chapter 1 of Wataten has painfully slow page load times (for me) due to one of the worst examples of file bloat I've ever seen. The translator posted a resaved version almost immediately, but obviously it never got uploaded (and the link's long dead). Could someone compress the files a bit and re-upload the chapter for the benefit of future readers? I could do the first part easily enough (saving about 170MB as it happens), but I'm not sure where I could upload them without the hassle of creating an account somewhere.

Sup, new user here.
So yeah, my insecure self used too much the preview post button and I got marked as spam. How do I get that removed?

I didn't fix this...but it looks good now at ~30 MB. Please do let me know if you see any other issues.

Edit: Wait a second...I lied. Something is weird, I'll look into this.

This is fixed now, sorry for the trouble. Enjoy your stay.

All right, Wataten should be fixed now, thanks for the note. We actually did update the archive ~3 years ago...but this wasn't reflected on the site for some reason. Some strange bug I guess. I can't easily check all other manga to note any size discrepancies like that, but thanks for the note and by all means point it out again if you see it!
