Seems I over exagerated due to a problem on my end and seeing other people on another forum having similar issues. jose reported that only 5 of his series are down.

It'll be interesting to see how this recent government intervention will play out for the anime community. It's going to be a bad day if it gets to the point where big groups or established encoders close their doors out of fear of the "what if". Hell even just users that just share. Nobody wants to worry about prosecution


Truthfully, I hope it does scare off many of the scener's. I've come to hate scener's and the crap they call quality releases. I could do a better encode using my old Commodore 64 then what most of them put out.

ya i had to manually link check all my folders with JD just to see which series where down. nearly ALL my older 720p content was off line but none of the 1080p minus summer wars. i think i didnt get hit too bad considering.

yeah. only 5 series of mine vanished. i'm backing up everything to a free account on uploadstation just in case though. since you can use the remote upload, it's quick and easy; it's mainly a precaution, since more files might disappear from FS

You know I forgot about xdcc. That would be where everyone would fall back to which would be fine with me. Apparently my brother just texted me and said that these pipa and sopa bills were postponed indefinitely with the current proposals dead in the water. Basically when they get put up for vote it'll be a very different bill.

XDCC can't give people money for their illegal downloads, instead it even takes a lot of money to offer it on a bot with decent speed. So I doubt anyone will do that. :P

Torrents are a lot easier... I don't see what's wrong with them. They work much more efficient than any other means. Maybe too many people leeching and not seeding?

You could try making an AnimePassion Direct Connect hub. It can work relatively as efficient as torrents since you can download the same file from multiple users in chunks nowadays. (The only difference is that they need to have that file completed first afaik). You can also password protect it and only let in people whom you trust. No problems with leechers that way. :)

Direct connect hub huh? I haven't heard of that in like over 7 years. If I remember correctly anime-planet used to share animes by direct connect hub. LOL that was a heck of a long time ago though before they went legal.

Not me! Its like trying to find a needle in a haystack now to find full series from a group i must have in top quality. Lets just say 3 to 4 hrs over 2 to 3 days sometimes to find other links or links which are still alive. Then a bit of editing to have the subs or language i want eng sub with jap voice ofc! Google is still your friend, you just have to find the right key words to get the search result you want ;)
THE MOUSE IS MIGHTIER THAN THE PEN! AH SCRAP THAT WE NOW HAVE TOUCH SCREEN...
