Okay final decision regarding the sharing issue...  
Hello! After more then 3 hours trying to get something from the person in question and talking with friends and members about their opinion I came to a conclusion BA needs a new revolution and I will ask some people around to help me in this matter.
For now ALL DOWNLOAD LINKS *using our server* ARE DOWN no one can download releases till this matter is down (means we will be able to download once we resolve this), as well we will continue to membership closed and other stuff. I still need to discuss this matter better with a person who will help me in the membership and so on but I need to say we will go, maybe, all over the membership think like moi_xryu did in September. But like I said I'm not sure yet about this and I don't know exactly if it will go or not.
Also the forum will be closed down, I don't see a point to have a forum and so on, I know me and megori had a HUGE time dealing with it but the forum will be down, I know those who were there and so on were having fun but I cannot have this go on with a lot of places where releases can be leaked easily.
More news will be posted in tumblr because I don't want to spam the community. I hope this will be understandable to everyone and I'm sorry for those who just joined BA and can't do a think now. I hope you won't hate us but if this don't work I won't give a damn thing about this anymore.

It was the same for me, but I don't wanna stop scanlate because it's already a party of me and I can't be without it. So I will try my best and see how it will go =D
roy13roy13 on January 11th, 2014 06:05 am (UTC)
Take your time and do what is better for you guys.
Thank you for the updates.
(I give up, I will make a account on tumblr) XD
xhokahokaxxhokahokax on January 11th, 2014 06:15 am (UTC)
AHAHAH you don't need to make a tumblr to see what I post there xD
lcypheredlcyphered on January 11th, 2014 06:12 am (UTC)
As one of the new users who just got accepted, I'm just really happy to be part of this great community at all ^^ Given that the scanlations are your hard work, go ahead and do what you feel is right! I hope this matter gets resolved soon, it's sad how people freely and wilfully steal your work. :(
xhokahokaxxhokahokax on January 11th, 2014 06:16 am (UTC)
I'm sorry that I may make you go all over the process but I don't wanna suffer later. I hope you will understand and won't be to mad =x=
mizuki143mizuki143 on January 11th, 2014 06:23 am (UTC)
Its really upsetting when ever i read this sort of news. :(
Glad that you decided on something already. I'm 100% behind you.
I really hope that issue will be resolved soon.
Just stay strong.
Thank you for all your hard work to this community. xx

I was just about to post this in the previous entry, but I guess here is good as well seeing as you've made a somewhat temporary decision.

This is so frustrating! More so because this is such a frustrating person to deal with (I just saw the tweets and honestly, I'm like how old is this woman? I just can't)! However, you are handling this well and I hope this somehow works out. Even if it doesn't, I fully support your stance and I don't understand why others simply can't understand your rules regarding the issue.

It generally sucks that this has been a constant issue with communities in the past couple months. People seem to be getting a lot more shameless and it's awful.

Anyhow, I'll be following your updates on tumblr, though I don't think anyone would mind if you kept posting them here.

PS - Support in whatever you decide to do!

Thank you for the update. :)

OMG what is with these sites that are popping up? Another group/community I'm a part of (their rules say I can't talk about them specifically) is having the same problem. People breaking the rules and thinking that they're in the right breaking them. I'm not even a member working in the groups and this is getting under my skin. I can only imagine what it feels like to you guys. It's aggravating to hear this happening to great groups with nice people in them.

As I always I will support whatever decision is made by the group. Seriously, following the rules isn't hard. Respecting people isn't hard. I don't understand... ( ; _ ;)

Sorry for being so vocal. My reaction is a cross between lack of sleep due to RL issues and this continually happening to good groups. Sorry if it comes across poorly. I'm running on 4 or less hours of sleep. ><;;

Really, you're a great group. It's sad to hear all of this happening to you. I hope it stops soon. You've my support.

that's so bad when some people don't respect scanlator's rules. I don;t want you to get exhausted for this matter. Use extreme method if you think you must.
wickedwahine808wickedwahine808 on January 11th, 2014 07:09 am (UTC)
Please do what you need to do for your group. It is really too bad that people do not know how to respect your requests and don't follow the rules. I wish you all the best in coming up with a solution and thank you for all the hard work you have done.

You do whatever you feel you have to do. It's just a shame that a few arseholes are spoiling things for the people who actually follow the rules.

I know I never did much in the forum as a moderator, but just let me know if you want help with anything ^_^
kayue: akihika-nekokayue on January 11th, 2014 07:37 am (UTC)
Tumblr is more secure than LJ or the forum where you had to register? ::confused:: And just when I got more active there too. My luck. :/

Anyways, whatever you decide works best for you. Have a good nights rest and de-stress.
epistasthaiepistasthai on January 11th, 2014 07:44 am (UTC)
oh my, please just take care of yourself! And do what you have to do to keep your scanlating activities enjoyable. Don't let some small-minded arse take the fun out of it for you.

Whatever changes you have to do, then do it. Thank you for all the wonderful things you've shared with us all this time.

Nothing like rule-breakers and some ignorant idiots to spoil your weekend >_< .... Really sorry you have to go through all this... being a staff for scanlation groups myself, I can understand the frustration of people benefiting from your hard work (especially since one of the groups I'm in is also greatly affected)... I'm sure all members won't hate you and will stick by you so don't worry about it....

I don't know what happened previously as I think I've only got into yaoi afterwards so have no idea what happened with yaoi sei... to be honest, I thought they were only a scanlation group @_@ But hope this whole affair can be resolved soon so it won't affect your life too much...

I've followed you on tumblr and re-blogged the posts anyway.... since I don't really have followers, don't know if it'll help or not though >_

Gah! Just read your previous announcement and thought 'Again?!'. Anyway just do what you have to do and try to relax in between. Though I seriously hope you guys don't close down completely but that's just my wishful thinking. Good luck!

Last thing I read last night was another group having similar problem and now first thing this morning on my f-page was this...
It's quite frustrating, in RL you can make assessment and avoid rude, disrespectful people; but what could be possibly done on internet...
I'm working on DJ's I actually don't mind shared around, the more people can read it the better, that's the whole point, but if I'm to work on Libre's title I should (obviously) share it only with people I know well from my f-list. Not because I'm scared of Libre (what can they "really" do?*shrugs*) but because one of the things I hate the most are above mentioned rude, disrespectful opportunists.

Oh, and btw I forgot about this particular group and its owner, I thought they've gone to oblivion. But they are still here (obviously) only scanlation groups disappear one by one.
Maybe we should ALL give it a rest (long hiatus) and see what they going to do without any new releases...

Oh gosh...I'm so sorry hoka-san
I don't understand how yaoi-sei got your scanlation when you're already filter the membership. Sigh...
She must be has another lj account or acquaintance here....shameless
xhokahokaxxhokahokax on January 11th, 2014 04:20 pm (UTC)
Yes that is what i think so as well.... if I could only find the mole nothing this would happen.
neptunchik85neptunchik85 on January 11th, 2014 09:55 am (UTC)
It is a difficult job, which would take a lot of your precious time. It is so so sad you need to do something like that due to someone's pissing behavior.
Thank you for updates and hard work!
shimaszkashimaszka on January 11th, 2014 10:22 am (UTC)
Totally understand your actions.
Hope all this problems will end soon.
majestic_stormmajestic_storm on January 11th, 2014 10:25 am (UTC)
*Sigh* I'm so sorry that this has to happen to you again. It's ridiculous that people won't respect your wishes to not share your scanalations, whatever you decide on doing, I totally understand.
zorak_40zorak_40 on January 11th, 2014 10:26 am (UTC)
*Tsk* Again, this kind of annoyance never ends.
I'm sorry the group start the year with this problem. I hope everything is resolved soon.
Thank you for updates. :)
phyrigiaphyrigia on January 11th, 2014 10:27 am (UTC)
like others said,you gotta do so I understand your decision. thank you for the update.
mrsseienmrsseien on January 11th, 2014 10:44 am (UTC)
geh! I just became a member and now this... It feels like whenever I finally manage to get accepted into some community, they close it or take down the links, because of some rule-breaker.
It's frustrating for me and I believe it's even more frustrating for you, but I hope it will go well this time!

ganbatte!
sammy9301sammy9301 on January 11th, 2014 11:22 am (UTC)
Of course we won't hate you.
Do what you think it's best for the community.
harryjharryj on January 11th, 2014 11:36 am (UTC)
Don't worry I can understand perfectly, I've already lived the same situation in moi_xryu, so I'll wait to know which decision you'll make
星の雫: kagamikirameki_mei on January 11th, 2014 12:15 pm (UTC)
I'm so sad to hear things turn out to be this way. Ever since I've become a member of BA I know how hard you've been working to share doujinshi/manga and make our stay here as much enjoyable as possible. I've been always treated kindly by the staff, never once any doubts I might had were left unanswered.
But it seems like some people enjoy seeing others' suffering and can't understand that some *irresponsible* acts can damage not only them but all the innocent members also have to pay for their mistakes. It's frustrating, I don't have another word to describe their actions or this situation....But I'll respect any decision you take, even in the bad or good times you can count with my total support ^_^ And I'll be happy to help you with anything I can.
*hugs tight*
xhokahokaxxhokahokax on January 11th, 2014 04:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your kind words. I will work in everything so everyone will have good and colorful days =D
