Well if didnt notice, if linkbucks did shut down, you can easily restore your links back to normal.
AS LONG as you used their full script and not their single link or multiple link system

yep I know this site.

Price for volumes are ok I think. Shipping fees are not that high if you buy 5-10vols. But more more stuff shipping fees are too high (for 25vol, it's 135euros on amazon and 190here with ems).

believe me, you can't rely on that site. My internet provider is the same that this dl site and they REALLY track copyrighted stuff...
When one of your file is erased (due to copyraighted problem) they blacklist your ip... when too much files are eresed, they ban you. Even if you have dial Ip, then they "ip ranged" ban you...
So they suck (even if they are french XD) :)

I'm not even sure they allow non french ip to upload (at leats you can uplaod on their ftp if you have no french ip)...


I confirm that I got banned, even though I have 6+ accounts...
My banned account was used to store Mangajin (50 volumes).
The only way to unban is to send a snail mail.

You cannot upload if you are not from France, except if your account was created before 2007.
Another problem with free.fr is that the download is limited to 30kb/s, if you are not from Free.fr, and with some obscure reasons.

Posted on: May 27, 2008, 08:21:54 PM
The problem is not to buy on amazon and been shipped. I'm buying each month for +-100euro, but the shipping cost are enormous. By exemple, when I buy 15vol it costs me 7000yen for books and 8000 for shipping costs. Simply because  shipping costs are calculated this way on amazon : 3200yen for shipping + 320yen for shipping on each book + price of the book.

That's why I said it would somehow sound "stupid" to buy one book and send it abroad (1 book = 400/500yen in japan, sending 1 book in Europa or USA would be 3200+320+400/500yen = 4000+yen).

The only "cheapest" way is someone living in Japan who buys for us and then sends abroad (like 5-10vol to each scanners)...


I just found BeNippon:
http://benippon.com/shop/index.php?language=en
(also in french, and they accept Paypal transfers).
Is this more interesting than Amazon.jp ?

There's a french website (that of a broadband provider named Illiad) which claims to provide :

- Maximum size per files : 1 Go if it is uploaded on the net, 10 Go if it is done with a ftp
- Unlimited number of files
- No download limit
- Stores your files 30 days without download

for free...

Another idea is to give access to paying guys.
If we have to pay $1 every month, it may provide a lot of money, since mostly 99% of the visitors are leechers.
Of course, submitters will have free access.
The problem of this solution is that it takes a lot of human time to maintain...
ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Linkbucks is indeed a pain in the [arse] but that could be put as a last resort.
If we make people pay, what's the different between this and NarutoFan or BleachExile?!?!?
Not that I support leeching, of course.

It's hard making money online... I mean there's these sites that pay you to read email, but the payout is tiny...
This is a really crappy idea, but maybe we should linkbuck our download links along with the anonym? I'll look around these days to see if there's any better and faster ideas...

What is important for a web agency is the amount of daily viewers.
I don't have the numbers, but I doubt we reach 2000 unique viewers every day.
About linkbuck, it's a pain in the a** !
Suppose that linkbucks shut down, because they don't earn enough money, then all the links are dead !

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

The best solution is to setup a monthly donation, and ask to people to give a little amount.
I suggest a $40 for the first month, to check how much you can get (if it's round $10, just forget about the donation process).

It's thanks to those narutards that they can use ad agencies and seriously, web ads never pay off. Especially not for forum sites. So don't start to think in that directions. There are hundreds of small sites who think that they will earn easy money with ads, but they are WRONG! In 98% of all cases they don't earn more than 1-2 bucks a day. That's 30 bucks a month, yeah! Let's buy manga for 30 bucks! If there just werent the problems with shipping.

Ad agency?
Well first we need to make ourselves known. Then we brainstorm an idea about the whole manga thing and need people to support. Can't the premium upload members buy the manga for us in Japan? Then scan, etc.

Found 2 other paying links: ucash.in and linkbucks.com.
With usercash.com and linkin.ws, I think we have all of them.

Now, I need to find a way to automate the process of getting such links.

Hrmms I've just tried it and it's definitely not as annoying as usercash.
Just simply click on the link and you're there.

I am gonna test it out on the latest update posts @ http://www.anime-sensei.net/

I think the paypal account and earning some money with our links can be a good idea.

BTW, buying stuff (mostly in japan) and ship it (we all live worldwide) will cost a bunch of money for just one volume.

Let's say we make an paypal account. There will be one manager and if you want to buy a manga, you request it. The manager will purchase the manga for you and it will be shipped to your address. This way the account cant be misused and everyone can benefit from it. Small uploader as well as heavy uploader can benefit from it.

I'm ahead of you and have aleady taken actions. Uploaders can live a carefree live now. Also it looks like linki.ws does pay for your uploads. We could create a common Winny Club account and use the number of downloads to buy raws. What do you think?

Maybe we should hide the referrer with:

http://anonym.to/

We simply need to append the URL, like:

http://anonym.to/?http://www.google.com

Note: The referrer is the URL of the site where you click the link. The referrer is sent every time you browse.
So megaupload and mediafire track the sites and can kick a lot of files when a file is declared illegal.

so apparently filedropper has this deal goin on where if you're a blogger/digger/del.icio.user, you can get a "gold account" (250gb folder) for free. the thing is, there's nothing stopping everybody from signing up for this. my biggest problem with the site is that it uses some stupid flash interface, and there's no multi-upload form

specifically, the flash interface won't let me drag-and-drop the files i want to upload onto the browse... bar, which i can do almost everywhere else thx to this firefox plugin. it's a huge time-saver if you upload files often

Nice! :yay:
I think almost all the major sites (MediaFire, MegaUpload, etc) use a flash interface. And FileDropper was made to let you up to 1GB, I think. The site server timed out so I can't tell.
So if you were multi-uploading files that are about 1GB each, imagine how strained your and their connections will be. Not to mention the absurd loading time.

so apparently filedropper has this deal goin on where if you're a blogger/digger/del.icio.user, you can get a "gold account" (250gb folder) for free. the thing is, there's nothing stopping everybody from signing up for this. my biggest problem with the site is that it uses some stupid flash interface, and there's no multi-upload form
