I am actually not seeing any issue when I read Part 3 on my phone or the website.
However it is important to note that the e-Book for V9 has already been released as such they recommend sending any errors found to support@j-Novel.club.
There seems to be no issue in the ebook, so it looks like it was resolved.
This is something many have been asking about for a while. Though now more than ever we need the ability to at least follow or sort the novels that we are reading. It is getting harder and harder to get through and find a novel that I am in the middle of reading.
@sniper_samurai I don’t use scrolling and I see similar margins on my iPhone and iPad. In fact, I only read novels on my phone now as the line length is way too long on the iPad unless the font is huge even in portrait. I’ve learned to tune out the too small margins, but it still isn’t ideal even on the phone.
I’ve mentioned it before, also requested portrait two page view for iPads and tablets, as that’s how I prefer to read novels on my iPad. Kindle’s app does that view really well with good margins/use of white space, but obviously I can’t use that for pre-pubs.
@harunachiep my bad. I kept that short after all the confusion with the postings being moved back and forward. I was mainly referring to this reply you got after you assumed as I did, it might had something to do with the email.
@myskaros said in Error Report Section for J-Novel Club Series:
@harunachiep No, that's more likely just because we're all busy and small corrections to released e-books are lower priority. We'll fix them eventually, but not sure when.
While it is understandable and no one to blame, it is one kind of reply you usually would not get from a customer service department (of course I do not see @myskaros as customer service, unless they are which I do not know). While the truth is always appreciated I see such stuff as disheartening to give further feedback/support when you actually do not have to.
Helping the service provider to make their product better for everyone is a voluntary thing to do, after all.

@jpwong It's still happening, but not very often. I would say 1 in 10 probably have it of the ones that I have bought in the last year.
I guess they just sometimes forget to add it to the source file.
I... do not want to imagine that, but... it might be possible seeing the other things which seem forgotten...
I’m female and just ignore the boob threads, tbh. As long as male posters treat female posters with respect, I don’t care if they also want to talk about hot anime ladies. I mean, If you think women can’t be vulgar, especially women in fandom, then you haven’t met many female fans.
As for J-Novel Heart, I’m really excited by it as one of the reasons I didn’t join J-Novel Club was because at first most of the series were very male-demographic oriented and also seemed fairly fan-servicey. I joined when Bakarina and Beast Head were licensed as they were more to my taste.
I do like male-demographic novels as well, but I prefer my fan service aimed at female tastes. I’ve enjoyed being able to try series I wouldn’t normally check out, as sometimes even if they have a lot of fan service aimed at guys, they have other things about them I like. I’m hoping some of the male readers will try the female-demographic works who wouldn’t normally try them and will find things they like too. If not, as long as they don’t complain that they’re being published, then that’s OK too.
I’d be upset if it were a separate subscription, but it’s all part of one thing which is great. I haven’t read any of the new licenses yet as I’m a bit behind on pre-pubs, but I”m really excited about reading them once I’m caught up with a few other volumes that expire before they do.
As for the demographics of the forum, I expect anime/manga/light novel forums to be more male-dominated, unless it’s genres more aimed at women, plus you also have to remember a lot of women don’t say they’re female online as they can be harassed for it. As more JN Heart books get published, there will probably be more female posters, and the more they are, the safer women and girls feel about being open about their gender online.
@shiny I do not even mind the pretty basic design of the front page. But seeing outdated information and incorrect set content despite it is running on a CMS is really hard - especially since those kind of issues are very easy to mend.
@jpwong That is actually a good hint. SEPA works quite different - much more customer-friendly in legal terms, compared to credit cards.
While for VISA/mastercard I know there are insurances for the retailer/merchant, a SEPA transaction can be revoked up to 8 weeks later without the need of giving any reason. That makes abuse on international level possible and easy, since the general way to get your money in Europe - in case a transaction has been revoked - is only the legal way.
I have read through most topics here which are accessible for non-members. A lot of issues and wishes and suggestions for the app/website mentioned are old and repeated a bunch of times. Would a new topic help?
Yea, that's why I stay regular member, since I mainly read the pre-pubs, and buy premium ebooks every once in a while for my favorite series or ones I missed during pre-pubs. I definitely don't buy 36 books a year, but I do read that many, if not more, in prepubs.
@raitoiro Yes exactly, I thought I could read any novel from the platform the moment I bought it with the subscription status that matched.
Oh yeah, I did not know about such possibilities!
A big thank you to all for your return, which helped me a lot.
