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.

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
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.
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
@ 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.
