@aruseus493 IKR!!! The amount of research Takedzuki does for his series is amazing!!! I've always loved history and mythology so all of his series cater to all my tastes, and when he goes into obscure topics (like Phoenician and Sarmatian mythology) he totally blows my mind. I soooo want Chronicle Legion translated. The fan translation stopped at such a good point, just as I had my theories confirmed about the MC's identity!!!
@bananahead4 One of the feature additions I definitely want to add to the website is a listing on your account page where you can see the % of each part you've read (current and max) and reset them if you wish.
And subscribing/notifications is also right up there when it comes to feature improvements.
This is purely a UI limitation, because this information is actually returned to the site via the JNC API. In fact, the API response contains both the publishing date of the volume itself, plus the individual publishing dates for each eBook type (amazon/kobo/ibook/etc).
For example, if we look at For My Daughter volume 3, the API response lists a publishing date of "2017-10-24T15:00:00.000Z" for the volume itself, and "2017-10-25T07:00:00.000Z" for the ebook sellers.
There are also created/published/expiration dates for all individual parts in the volume, as well as the date that the volume's entry was created... plus lots of other dates for things.
@mereck Most of the info we’ll tell you is already available on the FAQ page, other than that prepubs expire for volumes on the 15th of the month after their ebook comes out (though if the ebook comes out after the 15th of the month, the prepubs won’t expire until the month after the next).
I believe you’ll be given access to a bonus premium immediately after you sign up for the first time as a premium member too.
Get any ebook reader other than the kindle app on there
use that to open it & it'll work straight away
Or alternatively, check out the awesome free Windows/Mac/Linux eBook software Calibre, which you can use to convert the epub into an Amazon format.
Yeah, it has been asked many times already to list the premium content on the volume page.
But I also like your idea about listing it in the redeem page, that hasn't been asked yet as far as I've seen!
I haven't been blocked yet, I'm just trying to get prepared for when it happens.
So far it isn't available on the amazon market. My Moon+reader Pro is available on amazon, but not for the fire tablets.
I was starting to look into how to copy .apk files over, it would just be easier if it updates itself, but I can live with manual updates.
On this site, I'd have to say the best written MC is Haruhiro from Grimgar. I also liked NeeChuu's MC, it was a riot to read him suffering through his sister antics. There's also Dendrogram, Ray is a really compelling character.
On Non-JNC LNs, I'd say Kazuma from KonoSuba. Godou in Campione also had a really great development throughout the series, it never received an official release though, thankfully it's fully fan-translated. Also Taimadou Gakuen's MC, though it received the same treatment translation-wise.
On normal western novels, the list would be too long so spare me from that lol.
@helge-könig There isn't anything official for updating people.
If there's a really significant update I actually will email everyone who owns the book about it (I did that once when I added some extra bonus content).
Generally though like for typo fixes and stuff I just updated the master file, and if you redownload it you get the new one.
One of the (many) improvements to the site I have on my to-do list is for your my library to show like a "last updated" date or something, or maybe have a better curated changelog.
@alexei-tikhonov I think it is a bug caused by a change for the RELEASES page, I posted about it yesterday: https://forums.j-novel.club/topic/10/report-website-bugs-here/204
If you find any other issues you can post in that same topic next time ;)
I’m quite happy Aincrad didn’t go on forever, I liked GGO a lot and like the series being an ongoing look at different VR games in the future world. All that sci-if stuff would be missing from an ongoing virtual dungeon delve book. I like Progressive (it wasn’t actually the first SAO I read) but am also happy the narrative didn’t spend a dozen books there before moving on.
@hedgehodge From what's been mentioned, Alphapolis hasn't even opened their doors to a meeting from their LN department yet. Only Seven Seas and Sekai Project have managed to license from Alphapolis, and it's only been manga adaptations of light novels.
