Are you someone who enjoys our releases? Your support actually does matter and depending on how much we're being supported; the chapter count fluctuates.

Are you someone who doesn't enjoy our releases and thinks badly of us for some reason? Oh no! Our Response and appeal to both patrons and readers who think badly of us for having a Patreon, and for locking chapters behind a temporary paywall for patrons, and more detailed information behind the scenes.

HISTORY TIME:

White Cloud Pavilion was built from the ashes of Archangel Scanlations (2015). We were once seen as passionate scanlators, doing the right thing for readers. Wait a minute? We are still passionate scanlators; except our way of operating is different.

FLEXIBLE AND DEDICATED:


If Patrons don't like the paywall reward... Our instant response would be to remove it for the greater good. We put it in place because we thought it would be an awesome reward for those who make all releases possible.-- we are aware that the overall mood towards this move (made in 2016) is not too popular.


- We do not call the shots.
- Patrons call them and we give them what they want.
- All members for every single position in WCP is paid and we're not ashamed of this. We are proud of it.

How many hours are put into each chapter?


Operator: 2-5 hours: Translator: 2-5 hours: Proofreader: 2-5hours: Typesetting 2-7 hours: Uploader: 45 minutes - Approx 7 hours per chapter which can easily be beyond that.


Let's not be generous and say each position/station takes a single hour to complete work and rushed. 4 hours 15 minutes. Collectively 124.5 hours per month is spent on focusing on each new production month. Remember that game you played for 124.5 hours? I can confidently tell you that hour count is far more (Try 249.5+ hours and beyond)!

We pour our hearts into every single release. Don't see that? Really? We will do better! Communicate with us and we will respond to you!


A REAL COMMENT MADE BY A REAL READER WHO WAS UNHAPPY WITH US (and our response below)

A comment from an unhappy reader:
"So I got to pay at least $1/month to read 4-5 chapters? No thanks, I can get 14 chapters/week for a light novel with $1 like 2 weeks before public release."

Our Response:
Alot more work is involved in scanlation compared to light novels.

1) Operating (RAW page securing, black boxing (placing special codes using software for translation identification which benefits Proofreaders + Typesetters locating where the translations go)
2) Translating (Converting chinese words into english is not an easy job and each series has varying difficulty levels) It's the reason why TLs are paid the most.
3) Proofreading (Making sense of the chinese translations and converting them into readable english with proper flow.
4) Typesetting (Placing the words onto pages and making it look good enough for readers) which typically takes 2-4 hours per chapter.
5) Uploading (Uploading chapters to our platinum mangareader which downgrades chapters every 3 days for Ongoing Marked series / every 24 hours for Active Marked series. Uploading chapters to the public is another time consuming process.

All positions are paid ($16.00 per chapter) (OP, TL, PR, TS, UP) and over 30+ chapters release every single month.You don't have to directly support us since the chapters will eventually become free.

Those who do are rewarded for doing so (which is a unique reward compared to other scanlation groups on patreon) and admittedly we cannot easily turn back since we've been operating this way for a long time).

All of the chapters you've read for each series have taken a huge portion of time from people's lives; so all readers can enjoy reading the series.


Still not enough? You still don't like what were doing here? okay time to get real with you!

1) Nobody is making a living off roughly $500-600 a month with over 20 'workers.'

2) We run zero advertisements on all of our mangareaders (paid or free); You're probably reading series off a site that does! They are making tons of money off you.

3) All chapters become free to read no matter what on pirated sites across the mangaworld.


We are not in it for the money; but ultimately White Cloud Pavilion survives because of that support- because every position is paid; and every chapter is paid ($16/CH) so yes; your support matters. It has always mattered!

-------------------

RELEASE SCHEDULE:

All chapters release to the public on a set timer/schedule which patrons have access too every single month. All chapters are uploaded onto our $25 platinum mangareader first- and they automatically begin a downgrade process.

  • Ongoing marked series means we haven't caught up to the authors latest release. OM have a 72 hour degrade timer across all our mangareaders and chapters are held up to 15 total days.
  • Active marked series means we have caught up to the author's latest release. AM have a 24 hour degrade timer (except for platinum mangareader which holds for an additional 48 hours) for a total of 7 days.

-----------------
Want your favorite series to release faster?
The reason for opening a Patreon is to give readers the option to help speed up production for All of the series. Together with your support we can begin releasing more chapters than ever before at a much faster rate. Our group will always pay translators for the hard work they do, and if we don't have the necessary funds to support our translators, we will be forced to close our doors and stop production. Supporting prevents this from happening.

Translators deserve incentive for boosted morale and motivation.
A huge percentage of translators do not get paid for their hard work, and instead do it for the love of the series and fans. Translating a series from one language to another is a time consuming, stressful task. Most translators burn out because of the stress involved, and production speed decreases drastically. Our goal is to make supporting translators much easier by opening a Patreon, to ensure that production moves forward at a consistent rate.

How will the money be spent each month?
The money WILL GO towards paying Translators and other vital talent such as Typesetters, Proofreaders, Operators, Uploaders.
The money WILL GO towards paying RAWs on u17.com and other RAW sites.
We wish to use your pledge support to motivate workers each month to ensure maximum production. We've been running this Patreon for over 2-years now, and we have consistently released countless chapters with your support!

How does it work? :
  • Patrons are invited to our discord server to look at our group's development and talk to our whole team.
  • Supporting our tiers gives you access to an exclusive HIGH QUALITY MANGAREADERS where the chapters automatically distribute every 3 days. In total if you support our second highest tier you can access up to 15 days of chapters before the public, and the public gets a new (older) chapter on the same day.
