I started this website about 2 years ago because I saw so many dropped novels and reader comments pleading for them to get continued.
Well, this post which was orignally on wuxiaworld forums was a final push :
Since, I only speak English, the only solution was to hire translators. So yes, every chapter you read on here is paid usually per word. I have come a long way from really poor MTL level translations. Unlike most other websites, this website is optimized to earn the most from ad revenue. It is understanable since ads pay the bills. I have recently been focusing on Patreon too as ad revenue have declined.
So it is very correct in this case when I say “your ads pay for the novels you read”.
Putting on adblock is very counterproductive in this case.
More ad revenue means more chapters.
