Alright, here's the deal. We've created a Scanlator membergroup to show our recognition of all the contributors here at MH. If you get put into this membergroup, you'll be a recognized scanlator here at MH, your name will be in lime green.
The problem is there's a whole heckuva lot of you out here on the boards, and I doubt I could possibly remember everybody here that would be deserving of being put in the group. Here's the criteria:
1. You have to be either a recognized leader of a scanlation group or you have to be personally vouched by one.
2. You have to submit either 5 MQ scanlations or 2 HQ scanlations.
3. If you are a LQ speed scanlator, then if you contribute with releases regularly over a period of three months here at MH, you'll be recognized.
If you feel like you fit any of these criteria, feel free to post here and one of the admins will place you in the membergroup. Thanks.
EDIT: As for International Scanlators, you'll be accepted into the group ONLY if you do the cleans yourselves, not just typesetting using other groups' scans.

Also if you think there's another criteria that you can think of that should qualify members for the group, please post here and we'll give it due consideration. ^^
Members of a scanlationgroup usally work on different things, like typesetting or editing for example, but can you call everyone in a scanlatorgroup (except translators since they are translators) scanlators? IMHO think so since everyone have a vital part in a scanlationgroup and that there'll be quite alot of member-groups otherwise . In that case you need different criteras for different sort of work. And that would be considerd on how many pages the scanlator have done
Or it could be that some recogniced dude on this forum (like moderator or whatever) who reads alot of manga, take notice of a scanlator (read typesetters and editors etc.) so much that this dude could remeber him/her and then recomend him/her. Sort of like when you read a new hq-chapter you be like "oh it's that dude he/she is quite good at what he/she does" when you read the credits page. I dunno if that is practicly possible but it would be in my perfect world... Mayby the leader can recomend his/hers members
Hope this makes sence, otherwise send a PM and I'll try again
BTW, shouldn't Believe be a scanlator?
Concerning typesetters and editors - that's where being vouched by recognized cleaners of a scanlation group, I think, come in. If you've done a lot for a scanlation group as a typesetter or editor, then yes, we'll recognize you as a scanlator, because you are a member of a scanlation group. But a cleaner has to recommend you.
All this membergroup is about is just recognizing people who contribute a lot, but we'll need your help in telling us who deserves it because there's so many here.
I'll check into Believe.
EDIT: And the answer is yes, heh. Believe's in the group now.
Eh, why not apply.
26 MQ releases.
You've been added. ^^ ~ WL
Thought I would get in on it too.
I co-own w/ woofcat - http://blood-scanlations.com/downloads.php
26 MQ releases.
Done. ^^ ~ WL
I've lowered the number of MQs and HQs that you need to do in order to become a scanlator.
Instead of 10 MQs, you only need 5 MQs, and 5 HQs, you only need 2 HQs.
Daryl should also be added
Looked into it and added Daryl. Thanks for the heads up. ^^ ~ WL
Wow I don't know what to say. Thanks chvis002 for the recommendation and thanks to WinterLion for adding me into the group. My weekend has been made!Originally Posted by chvis002
Err... I guess I should say something here? XD
That's what it said in the sticky topic under latest scanlations. Apparently most of our stuff is HQ according to MH standards, and even if it isn't, Sleeping Forest is past 40 releases by now
You've been added. ^^ ~ WL
wow... a scanlators group star?
well, i've done my eyeshield scans from 200-220 (except 219 which the file is being misplaced)XD...and most of my scans i blackened the pure black..and most of them is MQ
I'll give it a try.
I've already released 24 Polish scanlated chapters (19 Naruto and 5 Bleach), they are available at http://www.shishi.za.pl (just in case you are curious if i'm not lying )
Maybe i'm reading the rules wrong, but does this mean each member of a scanlating group with a account here can get the scanlator status or only head members?
But if invidual members can attain this status: I'm a member of Sleeping-Forest and PhantomX can vouch for that.
_VOiD_ should be one (if hes not already) he helped me out a lot when we were doing Zan, and hes also doing muhyo to rouji and yu yu hakusho, and other stuff hes really all around
I believe that we already gave Void the stars.
@ rashire, get one of the heads of SF to post here that you deserve to be added, that's what being "vouched by heads of groups" mean, but yes, individual members can be added too if they're recognized by that group.
