6th Anniversary: Rising from the dead

To the departed:

Just in time for Halloween we've managed to rise from the dead for Entropy's 6th anniversary but you're probably wondering what has happened in the past year.

Our group leader Sophendo|bot has mysteriously disappeared and left nothing for us behind. She was completely in charge of organizing the group and overseeing the projects. Without her the group slowly went into a deep deadly sleep. MegKF, our co-admin, kinda brought us back to life but Sophe's disappearance brought about some problems for us:
1) We don't know who was working on what project;
2) none of us have the access information to the main website except for Sophe...;
3) we don't know how to contact the owner of our IRC bot; and
4) we have no idea who of the staff is still active.

So, any of the staffers who were still active about a year ago and wish to continue, please contact us! DX (comment here with your job and last project, or poke MegKF, icassop or terracannon876 on IRC)

This blog will serve as a temporary website for now until we can figure out what to do with main website (which is btw still working).

As for projects/releases, we will be working on one project at a time because we don't have the manpower right now to scanlate many manga simultaneously. The first project to be finished is Shibutani-kun Tomo no Kai. What comes next will be decided depending on the staff and the current work status of each manga. We hope you understand that there is no use asking us to finish ABC or XYZ manga.

To Sophendo|bot:
We don't know if you have a chance to read this somewhere but if you do, please contact one of us! We miss you~

The sole Anniversary and Halloween release today is Shibutani-kun Tomo no Kai v05 ch22. It is only available on IRC: #entropy@irc.irchighway.net (n/a on entropic though)

Happy Halloween!

Truly Yours,
~ Entropy Zombie Staff ~

Terminology Extended

Entropy (definition):
(1a) Inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society
(1b) A process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder

entropy [dot] manga [at] gmail.com
[dot] = .
[at] = @
Replace the dot with a period and the at with an @. (And in case your common sense went down the drain, there should not be any spaces or brackets in that email address...)

IRC channel: #entropy
IRC network: irc.irchighway.net

Help us spread entropy through:
*Creative Text Interpretations (translating into English from any 1 of the following: Japanese, Korean, or Chinese)
* Original Language Checks (checking other people's translations for accuracy and faithfulness)

* Digital White Outs (cleaning scans as defined by whitening out the foreign language, no redrawing, no typesetting. It's OK to not have Photoshop; other editing software is allowed for this position only.)
* CGI, Creative Graphics Interpretations (purely redrawing all day ... all night)
* Inputting Text (typesetting scans; automatic copy and paste program and font template will be provided)
* Mastering the Art of Entropy (the whole editing package: cleaning and typesetting; redrawing is optional)

An experienced mentor will hold your hand for any one of these positions. But they won't hold your hand for long ... lest they be tempted to cut it off.
