Ahh, I see. Well, yeah. The issue that I already brought up probably makes that really hard to happen at this moment.
The credit purchase thing is already a feature that will happen for this service as well.
Right now Premium members get 1 credit each month and we are also allowed to purchase more if we like at a later date when that system is put in place.
I agree though it'd be really cool, but partnerships usually doesn't start happening until the service has matured and other parties has found an interest in the service.
@Fezu I can change that setting, I think it's to prevent people in conversations from changing their original posts a long time afterwards and having then it be desynched from further replies/quotes.
I'll think about removing that restriction.
A lot of our licenses were originally web novels (like a lot of light novels these days). But we are licensing the print tankobon version of the series, not the original web novel version.
We definitely might consider licensing directly from authors in the future.
As for using fan translations, we make sure that all our translators are paid for their hard work and produce good quality translations. If you are a good fan translator we would love to talk with you!
