Re:Library Hit by Invalid Traffic! (Again!)

It had been a great 2019, but everything must come to an eventual end. If worse has come to worst, expect Re:Library to be terminated by Aug 2021 since that’s how long we purchased this hosting plan for. It is very unfortunate, but we have been reported by our advertising partner that our site has hit a high threshold of non-human traffic, again!

So what does that mean to you? To us? And to our publishers? It means that we won’t be able to get a source of ad revenues anymore from our current ad network until we get this issue resolved, and no source of revenues means we can’t pay our publishers or freelance translators for their hard work, we also won’t be able to continue paying for our hosting plan, and that means termination of Re:Library for when our plan ends.

What is invalid traffic you ask? How do we resolve it? Invalid traffic or non-human traffic is basically what we refer to bot traffic. There are good bots like our neighborhood friendly Spiderman Google Crawler which crawls our site and index them on the search page. But there are also malicious bots that come to our site to scrape or steal our content, or bots that tried to brute force log-in to steal our user credentials.

In short, our site has too many bots visiting us and that’s hurting our site, not only in terms of our content being stolen but also our ads earning. While we’re not really too concerned about losing some traffic to the aggregator sites, but having been removed from our monetization scheme due to those very aggregator sites is doing more harm than good.

Which is why, we will now be implementing some content scraping/non-human/bots countermeasure. we are not sure what specifically we will need to do, though we will try not to inconvenience the visitors as much as possible. If something goes wrong with the testing, expect the site to be down for a short maintenance.

Succubus, Levelmaker, and Hero’s Daughter join Re:Library!

Diz a joyous day! We got three new translators joining Re:Library with the iconic Succubus’s Life in Another World, Levelmaker, and Reborn as Hero’s Daughter! Looks like Phase 2 of Project Gender Bender is off to a smooth(?) start?

SirMetathyst is currently working on the next chapter of Succubus’s Life, it was 80% complete last I heard from him. The progress is a little slow and we expect 1 chapter monthly, but SirMetathyst is hopeful to increase his proficiency and increase his pace to 1 chapter per week.

Fenderson will continue to work on Levelmaker while Yuki edits it, so there are no changes to this novel for now. There is no fixed schedule as Fenderson joined Re:Library as a collaborator instead of a hired translator. Same with Yuki who’s currently working on Hero’s Daughter.

However, Yuki has promised that she will focus a bit more on Hero’s Daughter from now on and we can expect at least 3-7 chapters per month, so we have something to look forward to. As of now, however, Yuki is still working on re-translating the previous chapters to make up for the low-quality translations. Once that is done, we can expect some new chapters of Hero’s Daughter coming out soon 🙂

Stories Behind the Broken Theme & Links

First off, please allow me to apologize to all the readers who experienced issues with the broken theme and broken links for the past 30-40 minutes. I am really sorry about the inconvenience caused. It was never meant to happen, and this problem doesn’t root from the Layout Tester I am currently testing with Ezoic, but I still appreciate you guys informing me of the issue.

All of this started when I tried to upgrade my current plan from an annual plan to the biannual plan, I reached out to the customer support to get them to change my plans, paid them an extra 200USD, and happily thanked them for the help. However, what I didn’t know was that, immediately after the move, all the plugins and theme on the site were broken. I would probably have found out much later if not for a certain comment and email about the broken links. Thank you both for reporting the issues to me promptly.

I honestly did not expect a simple upgrade in the plan would lead to such a huge issue, so I complained to their customer support, get them to fix the issue ASAP, and have them compensate me for the inconvenience caused. They fixed the issue within 30-40 minutes and agreed to add one extra month to my plan, which I am extremely grateful for.

Layout Tester

We have received an invitation from Ezoic to test out their Layout Tester app. According to them, by installing and activating the app, their Artificial Intelligence (AI) will test and find the best layout customized for each individual users to optimize the user experience according to their browsing behavior.

If you noticed that the site layout has changed in the next few days, do not be alarmed as it was due to the AI working on customizing a theme that fits your browsing habit. We will be experimenting with the Layout Tester for a while and if we find it too annoying or received too many complaints from the users, we will be turning it off.

If you run into any problem with the theme, please take a screenshot and send it to us on [email protected]

Moving Day

In order to provide the best reading experience to our loyal readers, we have decided to move our site to a new server. For now, the new server is already live and better than ever. However, I need to run some final check on the site to make sure everything is in proper order before we map our domain to the new server. We are expected to move in early July, some time around next week.

All publication on the site will be pushed back during the site migration, so expect there to be some delays in next week’s schedule. I believe that there will be no server downtime during the migration, but in case something goes wrong, expect there to be some server hiccups.

Do not be alarmed if you noticed the domain has changed from https://re-library.com to https://relibraryshome.com/
That means the server has been moved successfully and the site will load faster than ever!

All of us from Re:Library wish you a good day and we hope to see you again soon.

VPnA – The Prequel Volume 2 Chapter 170

Final chapter~

So here’s what I’m going to be doing in regards to the novel:

I’m going to take a break before starting to ‘write the fanfic’, please don’t pester me on Discord about how long the break is going to be, because the only thing I can tell you is that I want start posting the ‘fanfic’ in late January/early February (when I finish my internship) with a bang, then proceed to finish the novel ASAP. For my patrons on Patreon, don’t fret too much, I’ll try to update you guys on the progress at least once a week, and will occasionally throw out chapter previews on Patreon.

Now, ‘writing fanfic’ isn’t going to be the best solution to the problem, but it really is the only thing I can do without dropping the novel (well, technically I could keep translating until I get hit by a DMCA or a threat or something, but I don’t want to have to put up with that). I love the novel as much as any of you, and it being the first CN novel I translated really makes me emotionally attached to it.

Alright, I finally got around to posting these chapters. I’m very sorry for posting it so late, but between moving back to HK for internship, getting used to the internship and work, as well as family issues, Very Pure and Ambiguous – The Prequel was more or less the last thing on my mind (considering that I am dropping the novel). You will be getting 2 more chapters from me most likely on Sunday (I promise I’ll get it out on Sunday by the latest), but that’s going to be it. It’s been a good run, but I really don’t feel like worrying about my translations getting DMCA’d.

Once again, thank you all for reading this novel with me so far. I sincerely hope that you will stay around to read the Very Pure and Ambiguous – The Prequel fanfiction that I will be writing from now on (but more on that for our truly final release).

Even more Very Pure and Ambiguous: The Prequel Updates

Hey everyone, Selutu here. Sorry for the long absence here, like I said in the previous update, somethings came up, so I had to put the novel on hiatus for a while.

Well, I’m sure you guys know what kind of crap Qidian International did this time, right? So I’ll cut straight to it. This weekend, I’ll be releasing a load of chapters (well, less than the other mass releases I’ve done), then we’ll cut it at that.

It’s been a great run and I really don’t want to drop the novel, but honestly, the kind of stuff Qidian International is pulling is really getting me worried. I don’t want to get dragged into that sort of mess.

So… tata for the most part. Although, I will be posting fanfics of the novel, so you guys might want to read that. winks

More Very Pure and Ambiguous: The Prequel Update

As you guys can see on my patreon, I put the series on hiatus. It wasn’t something I wanted to do, but between the unexpected workload from the new workshops that I’m in, and another reason that I rather not speak about in too much detail, I’m going to have to do that.

So, it’ll be on hiatus for another week or two, maybe slightly more. During this time, I’ll still continue to stack up chapters, so expect a mass chapter dump when I’m back for the series!
