■ What is Yaoi is Life?
Yaoi Is Life is 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 favorite 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 My Yaoi Reads. ♡
■ When will you finish x project? Why is it not being released?
We love bringing you releases, but 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 12PM GMT 0:00 timezone.
■ Can I share your projects? Is there any restriction?
You are allowed to share our projects wherever you want, including 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 A TITLE GETS LICENSED IN ENGLISH PLEASE STOP ITS DISTRIBUTION IMMEDIATELY.
■ Where can I contact you?
You have several ways of contacting us. If you want to become a member then apply by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to ask for a link to be fixed or anything else that is miscellaneous then please message us here on Tumblr or in our Chat Box. We will reply as soon as possible!
Also, we are not present in other social networks other than Tumblr, so if you see us somewhere else, it’s not us!
■ Would you be up for a joint project with my group?
If you’d 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, drop us an email.
■ This link is down or doesn’t work.
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.
■ One of your projects is ‘no longer available,’ can you re-upload it?
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 might 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.
■ What is this Libre thing about?
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.
■ Why is my comment not showing on the website?
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.
■ Can I make a request for x manga?
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), send us an email.
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.
■ Can I apply as an Editor, Proofreader or Quality Checker?
As you may have noticed, these positions are not listed in our recruitment section, meaning that you cannot apply for them. Reasons are: 1. we do not train people in both typesetting and cleaning (Editor) and 2. a Quality Checker for our group must be an Editor who also has proofreading skills. 3. The Proofreader position is an abused one, so we generally choose a person that we know beforehand has prominent skills in the use of English.
For short: these positions are to be taken by members who are already in the group and that can hold various positions at once.
