We do hope that you will stay for a long time. Enjoy your stay as we work to become the best Naruto info site out there. BELIEVE IT!
If you're looking for something to do why not look over the Forums or more specifically Narutopedia Collaboration for a list of projects we're working on. And the Community portal has a lot of recent discussions and places to go listed on it.
Sorry, I don't know of any sites that post raws. But there are some uploaders here that get them usually a few days after the release. — SimAnt 13:50, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but I'm afraid we can't tell you of the sites. I know that I'm not the one you spoke to, but I need to tell you that we can't tell you of the sites as they're technically illegal, especially the sites that translate it to English. It's our job to get the info. How we get it doesn't matter. --X29 16:55, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
That... Odd statement aside, The people who translate the manga would either get it through sites providing the raws, or from sourses in Japan. Since the new chapters are published in Weekly Shounen Jump, it wouldn't be a hardship to buy a copy in Japan, scan it onto your computer, and send it to translators. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 17:12, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
Not sure what you mean by inferior quality to translated text, you mean the official releases? Also, don't put stuff on other peoples' profile page, talk page only man. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 17:22, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
@Hawkeye True, but I was told here that it's technically illegal.
@Alchez Actually, no, there'd be no portal, and these sites get it in various ways that I won't mention, as it'd be such a drag...... --X29 17:27, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
@X29 Oh hell yes, it's illegal alright, but try finding the perpetrators, it may be illegal, but honestly unless the domain is in the same country as the crime, it's pretty much a waste of time for people to hunt these things down. That's why you never hear about people going to jail for internet piracy.
@Alchez Don't worry about it, you're not the first person to do that. :D Still, yeah, the stuff we get online will rarely be as good as the printed versions, especially when all the translation groups don't have a unified style leading to conflict between readings of different scans. Still better than anything 4kids ever released though. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 17:32, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
In my perspective, they're doing what should be done, as there are people who are waiting for those people who officially translate the manga. I think those guys should work together with Kishimoto and whoever else he works with so that they can make two releases for the manga. One for Japan and another English translated. Those guys who are being illegal are doing the English version instead. --X29 17:42, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
