We, Yaoi Is Life, are a non-profit scanlation group that only works on unlicensed manga. The group was created back in January 2013 by Sara.
We are mostly people from Europe, North America, Asia and New Zealand. A small group of yaoi lovers who love to bring you high quality releases of our favourite manga. We hope you enjoy our projects as much as we do.
In May 2015, we moved to this domain. Our Tumblr account got moved to another one, but our URL there remains to be yaoislife.tumblr.com as from the beginning. Please do follow us there again if you did in the past, or feel free to do too so if you are new!
This site was kindly and amazingly designed and customized by Xi Jie, owner of Yaoi Releases. ♡
■ Please do not ask us when we will finish certain manga, or when will we release it or the like. We do scanlation in our free time, and do not like to be rushed. We do this because we enjoy it, do not make us hate it; we will be grateful to you for not doing so. Our release day is Saturday around 12 p. m. GMT 0:00 timezone.
■ You are allowed to share our projects in online manga viewers (although we highly encourage you not to, as they make profit of it and that is not what Yaoi is Life is here for), forums or your blog. Just please respect the following rules:
DO NOT REMOVE OUR CREDITS OR INSERTS IN ANY WAY.
WHEN DOING RE-DISTRIBUTION OF FILES IN FORUMS OR DOWNLOAD PAGES, LINK BACK TO OUR SITE.
DO NOT CHANGE THE ORDER OF THE PAGES IN OUR FILES.
DO NOT, IN ANY WAY, MAKE MONEY OUT OF THIS SCANLATION. THIS IS FOR FANS BY FANS.
IF THIS TITLE GETS LICENSED IN ENGLISH PLEASE STOP ITS DISTRIBUTION IMMEDIATELY.
■ If you like to propose us a joint, please understand that we ask you to uphold the quality we provide. If you are confident of being able to do so, email us. Update: since August 2014 we are currently not accepting any more joints until new announcements.
■ You have several ways of contacting us. If you want to become a member then apply by emailing us. If you want to ask for a link to be fixed (not the projects we have purposely taken down the links of) or anything else that is miscellaneous then please message us here on Tumblr or in our Chat Box. We will reply to you as soon as possible. Take care that we will do so using the GMT 0:00 timezone as reference.
■ If you encounter trouble when using our mega links, it is more likely a problem with your browser. Try refreshing the page later or switch browsers to download the file. You are welcome to ask us to update the links as long as the alternative link we provide is also down and you can not access the file in order to download it.
■ Libre Shuppan is a Japanese manga publisher. For more info: magnetic-rose.net/2010/09/libre-sends-cds-to-scanlation-circles
That is why we do not pick up projects from them anymore, and also why we do not accept scans that people offer us.
■ Don’t worry if your comment does not automatically show up when commenting for the first time on the site: it’s in moderation and as soon as we can (normally in minutes or hours), it’ll show up on the post you commented on. This only happens the first time, as the next comments you drop us will not need moderation.
■ You are more than welcome to make a project request, but take care that for you to request a project you shall be the provider of the scans. If you are the provider of the scans and want to propose us a project (or more than one), email us.
If you have a canon/epson scanner and would not mind buying a few books for us, that is fine too. If you do not know how to buy/get the books we can guide and recommend to you.
■ As you may have noticed, there are no QCer positions avalaible to apply. A QCer for our group must have been trained by us in Editing (meaning you are already in the group) as well as to have proofreading skills.
■ If we have taken down a release, we will not re-upload, re-post or provide a new link for it at all. We are sorry in advance for any inconveniences this may cause. These releases will be taken down after 72 hours of when they were published. If we receive asks/messages/emails about this matter, we will not answer to any of them.
■ We are not present in other social networks other than Tumblr, so if you see us somewhere else, it’s not us!
■ If you have an issue that involves the 18+ material that may be posted on this site, please have clear that we state the nature of the content here: it is for adults. It is up to you to view our content while being aware of everything displayed on this site.
