ayne Posted March 19, 2014 Report Share Posted March 19, 2014 Why are you asking for donations? Evil Flowers is a nonprofit group that scanlates manga/manhua/manhwa and distributes it for free. Nevertheless, there are costs that come with the process of scanlation. That's why we're in need of donations to cover our server costs and to buy new volumes to scanlate. Server costs? Since we offer features such as the online reader and direct download, we have to pay for those services. First, there is the normal monthly server costs to cover. Additionally, we pay for software updates, so our server is well-protected from unwanted access and works smoothly. Including licenses and software updates the server costs add up to $70-83. Why do you need to buy volumes of manga/manhua/manhwa? In order to bring you high quality scanlations, we usually need to buy the volumes and scan them ourselves. There are a few online sites that offer high quality scans to download. If we can get online scans in high quality, we use them. Sadly, the projects we scanlate often can't be found in high quality online and sometimes can't be found online at all. That's why we buy them, since we otherwise wouldn't be able to scanlate them. Of course this costs us a fair amount, as the volumes are shipped from overseas. Including shipping fees, a single volume can cost up to $16. Currently we're saving up for: (Including shipping fees.) ~ under construction Where can I donate? To donate click here. You can chose for what reason (server costs or various volumes) you want to make a donation. Any amount is appreciated. We really appreciate every donation we get, even if it's just a small one. Donations are used solely for the reasons above and not for personal gain. I donated more than listed in the 'Latest Donations' Paypal charges a fee when transfering money. Those fees are included so you can see what we actually received. Depending on the country and the amount of the donation, the fee changes. Fees can be around $0.30-1.00 if the donation is around $1.00-15.00. Thank you very much, Evil Flowers staff team. Quote ayne, aka ayane, ayns, and all the mistyped versions...
