Remember that fan translation here is basically grey zone, and I know that there's several examples of some projects got C&D just because they've been ask for money with the famous example is Romanesque Kickstarter by Aroduc. While I know that it's your own will to give the money, it might be alert August which to say is less than ideal situation and therefore risking C&D. Not to mention that giving donation here is basically just turned it into pseudo official translation, which is still illegal at this point and to make it legal it would take too much effort. So in order to lessen the risk of C&D, I would say that you better just scrapped the donation idea and just support the effort through another way. PS - Donation here is pretty much debated in the older time of Fuwanovel, and you may learn about that from both of the thread below. And here's another thread that discuss about it as well. tldr - I would say that it's better safe than sorry when it come to donation to fan translation effort, so my stance here would be that I won't involve with this kind of donation even if I have 100 dollars because of the risk. Thanks for the your input and the threads you've linked. To be honest, it's not really something I've considered given the fact that it wouldn't be a donation for the translation, but a gift as an acknowledgment of a personal goal being met, but I take your point seriously. Perhaps it would be safe to put it this way: I will not be giving any money for this project whatsoever, that being said I'm happy for eplipswich to message me and I'll offer my strong words of congratulations once it's all done. No cause for complaint if we're doing it that way. aprilia1k 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
