I have AMAZING news. A hardcore, relentless, obsessed reader of ours emailed us a few months ago offering to restore ALL the comments from the old site. This means, the comments that were posted on disqus from 2-5 years ago are now viewable!!
As a software engineer, she wrote multiple emails trying to convince us it was worth the trouble. I quote, “Re-reading the novels with comments will certainly be an enjoyable experience. Especially for new users... who had not read the previous comments.”
“I am just an avid reader who wants to obsessively restore around 234,000 comments posted by other readers on volare. Even if each and every one of those comments is just a simple "Thank you translator", I still want to restore them.”
It wasn’t that we did not want to restore the comments, but it was soooooooo much work. However, this insane reader was persistent and ended up spending weeks mapping all the old url to the new ones.
We are incredibly lucky to have someone who loves our novels so much.
Now, it is...
