Hey all, the community here was polled earlier this year to conduct a large-scale scanlation community survey and collect some interesting data. The survey asked scanlators things like: Do you use MTL? Why do you scanlate? What software do you use? and a lot more.

Summary results of the survey are now out!

Now I get to see the final version it looks great, a pleasant reading and quite informative. I still remember some remarks that were made back then, but overall an appreciated study. Where do you plan to share it (besides here)?

Glad you enjoyed reading! It's been shared to Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr and the manga forums (MU, E-, Dynasty) I could remember off the top of my head. Feel free to share the results anywhere else :win:

This is amazing! @Yarnball Thank you so much for sharing this with us, and congratulations to all the people involved. =)

I won't make any comments on the actual content because I only skimmed through the material. It is packed with dense data, so I will come back later to read it properly.

It reminded me of the Inside Scanlation project that covered the scanlation scene from late 1990 to 2010. They used a different method of research (probably Narrative Inquiry or Ethnography; they don't say what method was used =P ) and they interviewed scanlation groups.

I believe your data complement that project with new insights into the scanlation community. I will have to re-read it too haha.

Cheers!
