Q: Can I get notified of new updates?
A: If you would like to get update notifications, try checking the box next to “Notify me of new posts by email” before submitting a comment. You should then be notified of new updates via email.
Please note, however, that you will be notified of all updates on this website. Unfortunately my website is not sophisticated enough to only notify you of updates on a particular story.
Q: How do I stop getting notifications?
A: Someone commented that they checked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox, and now wants to opt out of the service. Unfortunately I don’t see anything on my end that could remove you from it, but try looking in one of those emails that you get, and see if there’s an “unsubscribe” option towards the end of the email. This has worked for me on other news subscription websites, and I hope it’s the same in this case.
Q: Why do you use passwords for NSFW content?
A: I get flagged for that kind of content. (Just to be super safe, I censor out curse words too.) I’m actually not even supposed to put NSFW content up on my website, but after a little experimenting, I found that I could get around that restriction by putting the content behind a password. It seems that the automated system can’t find my NSFW content when it’s protected by a password. Therefore I don’t get flagged, and I can still provide that content for you on my site. I also feel like using a password makes it harder for bots from aggregator websites to steal my work. Aggregator websites are already stealing my easily accessible SFW content, so I like to make the juicy NSFW stuff harder for them to get to.
Q: The password is not working! 😡
A: I’m really sorry! 😭 I don’t know why the password works for some people and doesn’t seem to work for other people. It might be a temporary glitch, since a couple of readers have reported that the password works for them sometimes but not at other times. I’m not tech savvy, so I don’t know the underlying cause. But if the password is still not working, here are some solutions I found after looking around on the Internet:
-Use a different web browser (i.e. Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Lynx, etc.)
-Use a different electronic device (i.e. computer, tablet, phone, etc.)
-Update your web browser
-Update your computer system
Q: Do you have night mode or dark mode on your website?
A: Sadly no. I tried adding a plugin for night mode, but it seemed to mess with the CSS, and it also didn’t work for every browser. I’m not tech savvy at all, so I just ended up taking it down. But here’s a trick: try inverting the colors on your monitor.
For Mac: command + option + control + 8
For Window 10: Windows Key + key to open the Magnifier tool. Then press Ctrl + Alt + I (Here is an 18-second video tutorial: YouTube)
Q: Why do you split your chapters?
A: It’s a psychological boost for myself. Whenever I finish one update’s worth of translation in a reasonable time, I feel accomplished, and it motivates me to keep on translating. But if it’s taking me forever to translate one long chapter, I lose steam halfway and I’m put off of the project for a while. So translating in digestible portions means I’m actually translating more in the long run. I usually split longer chapters into two parts, but if they’re super long chapters (like FOD) then I will split it into multiple parts.
Q: What numbering system do you use for your chapters?
A: When I first started splitting chapters I numbered them with .1 and .2 at the end (i.e. chapter 50 part 2 = chapter 50.2), but I’ve always thought that it looked messy. So when I saw another translator simply numbering their split chapters chronologically without using decimals, I followed suit. (The Big Landlord and FOD: Xue Zi Xuan uses the decimal numbering system, and the rest of my stories are in simple chronological order.)
