... and bato.to is dead.

 

Discuss/praise/despair/complain/whatever.

 

Continuation of the closing down thread.

 

----


Comic page on vatoto is temporary disabled to discourage any further scraping. The forum is hosted on a very small server and wouldn't be able to handle further scraping. Please don't do it even when/if it does come back up.

 

Automatic redirect from bato.to to vatoto.com is not in place also to discourage automatic access.

 

The migration to vatoto may have caused an hour or two of rollback in data

Content search / new posts feed seem to be dead for now too.

Cool,  thanks for the heads-up :)

 

And I voted for "vatoto.com" because, well, it seems to be up 'n running and "bato.to" seems to be dead and decaying in a hastily dug shallow grave :D

 

(though I do wish I had a clue how to make the dark theme (script) I've been using work here......maybe I'll try to piddle with it later, though I'm pretty useless on that kind of thing >_<)

 

extra p.s. - heh, figured it out, damned good thing it was just a matter of filling in the blanks :D

Yeah, I got a few errors when I first started trying to navigate around, but they've all seemed to clear up, all seems well as far as the actual forums/comic threads and any other user info/forum related type stuff as far as I can tell.

 

An added bonus is the "new content" button is working again, I hadn't been able to get through on that in it seems like a month :D

...I thought the joke was that "Batoto" and "Vatoto" are spelled/sound the same, unless you use really obscure kana/sounds for foreign languages.
 
Either way it's 「バトト」。

RIP Batoto

At least the forum is safe (for now).

And having no respect he ceases to love, and in order to occupy and distract himself without love he gives way to passions and coarse pleasures, and sinks to bestiality in his vices, all from continual lying to other men and to himself."  --  Fyodor Dostoyevsky

It's August, 2010. I'm watching anime at a friend's house, and he asks if I've read any good manga lately. I hadn't, as I was unaware of how much easier it was to find manga online. I had previously been using baka-updates to keep up with anime since about 2005, but had seldom used their sister site, baka-updates manga. The only other manga I had read online at that point was Berserk and Homunculus (from the now defunct Band of the Hawks.) I was then whisked away to a crap ton of different genres, art styles, plots, and communities that I had no idea even existed up to that point. I spent a ton of time and gathered a bunch of different sites into a favorites folder, and went to each site almost daily to be aware of updates and delays. It got to the point where I didn't add any newer series to my list because I didn't want my favorites to explode any more than it already had.

 

This was when I started seeing a lot more of the advertisements from groups I was reading saying to read (at their website url) and Batoto. 1 or 2 groups is one thing, but I was seeing 10-20 of the groups advertising this. In fact, one of the scans I was reading was so popular, he could no longer support reading on his site and started using batoto exclusively (for reliability.) I started reading almost everything through batoto at that point. Mainly, because my HD burned and I lost all of my favorites. I could recover about 40% through my own memory, but it took some time before I could get everything back.

 

I will never forget this site, and it saddens me to see it go. It saddens me that so much of the community is disappearing because of less fair, and even criminal aggregate sites.  But, I understand. As someone that has had to get up at 3:48 am because a server crashed, and you're the closest person to the server site to force a reboot, it's soul crushing. I applaud, in fact, Grumpy and the rest of the team for doing this for so long, and for so little in comparison to some of the other aggregate sites. However, it's still sad. It's sad when a group you enjoy reading disbands, when a translator moves on, and when something loved and cherished in your community shuts down. Batoto will be missed, but it's missed because we love it. Because it made an impact in our lives.

 

Thank you. For everything.

I couldn't have said it as well as Russet has. Thank you for everything!

Nothing. Just something I thought sounded nice.

Finally, the truth comes out... (Except I think I knew this before.) It seems like a sort of playful sort of sound, I've always been fond of it.

 

I also have always liked that it was completely incidentally a few letter mutations away from both English "potato" and (as pointed out in some thread of yore) from several latin-based languages' "batata" (sweet potato, usually).
