Hey guys, Reigokai here!
This is a continuation of a previous post, so to get context about it, here’s the link: https://isekailunatic.com/2022/02/28/not-a-chapter-patreon-and-trying-to-make-translation-my-job/
Since this system might have me touching several stories that are inactive, I would like to set out some guidelines here to avoid any mess and to incorporate a few suggestions you guys gave me before.
- Please don’t add the chapters to Novelupdates. I am not exactly taking over the series, so it would be misleading not only to readers, but also any potential translators thinking of picking it up. It would also make the chapter index in those series messy.
- Any translators looking to pick up a series I translated from patreon are free to take the chapters I have already translated (and just add that I translated those chapters), but only IF you are actually picking it up and translating future chapters. Contact me as well at [email protected] if you are going to do so.
Anyways, that was mostly related to novelupdates and translators really, so I will separate the next points here. These ones will cover the actual chapters.
- I will be posting those chapters in patreon to keep the main website mostly concentrated in the series that I personally took over. These chapters will not be patreon only. Anyone can view them with no 1 week exclusivity or anything of the sort.
- When sponsoring a chapter for the series of their choice, that series will be added to the Donation tab in the main page where anyone else can also contribute in continuing that series. Those chapters will be posted in patreon as well.
- NSFW stories. Those…I am not against translating them, but these ones are a whole different can of worms. Because of patreon guidelines, I would have to make my patreon adult-only and those chapters would be forcefully made patron only. Oh well, when it happens, it happens. No one has asked for a NSFW series yet anyways.
That’s all I could think of.
Lastly, I would like to remind you all that patreon is mainly to support my translations! Don’t feel obligated to become one just because I am unemployed now. As I said before, I will simply go back to searching if this doesn’t go well (you know, life being pay 2 survive and all that) and the translations of the main page will be unaffected. I love translating with a passion (maybe a bit too much), so you won’t be seeing me gone anytime soon.
It is thanks to you all that I can keep this going, so I am truly thankful.
If there’s anything more you would want to add, please do comment about it. I might even edit it in. I doubt there will be another post in a while about this unless a big change happens.

It is the story Even Posing as a Hero is easy -Why? Cause I am a God which has been added to the Donation tab where people can also contribute on bringing out more chapters.
