I know there's mangafox and other manga reading sites out there, but wouldn't it be better if we can archive mangas in IDW. I see a lot of IDW members often asking for Initial D mangas from time to time. If we can host translated and raw/manhua versions of the manga, I think it would be a nice addition to a Initial D fan site

Few things I'm concerned about why this wouldn't be possible are:
1. Copyright infringment
2. Bandwidth
3. Maintenance responsibilities (back-end coding)

How dare you put 'manhua' right next to 'raw' rather than putting it next to 'translated' where it belongs. For shame!

That said, count me against. We're having enough trouble just keeping the forum and radio up. Adding a manga reader is something that can be considered after we've got the current filesystem working properly.

Rather than having a dedicated manga reader, we should probably just have a big collection of all manga volumes up to download in one "READ THE MANGA HERE" thread. I wouldn't mind working on a project to collect the best quality scanlations of each chapter for such a project.

Actually that is a dandy idea. I would actually greatly appreciate it if someone were to do that since I do have a few friends who want to read the manga but don't want to sort through all the stuff for everything.
