Q: The links don’t work. What do I do?
A: Wait for 2 to 3 days to see if the problem fixes itself. If it doesn’t, please tell us, and we’ll upload it onto a new server such as megaupload and rapidshare.

Q: Can I use your scans for MVs, icons, banners, etc.?
A: Yes, you may, as long as you give proper credits to the owner of the scans, whether it’s “addiction” or someone else. The scanner is usually listed in the “credits” page. If it is not listed, then the scanner is “addiction”.

Q: Do you take requests?
A: Yes, we do; however, Ai-kun is the one who decides what she wants to translate and what she does not. So it all depends if Ai-kun wants to translate the scans that you provide.
Note: If you request, please be aware that “addiction” works at a snail’s pace, and it may take many, many months before she can give you the end product of your request.

Q: Can I friend you?
A: Yes; you don’t have to ask. As long as you friend us first, we’ll friend you back.

Q: How can I get in touch with either of you?
A: You can leave a comment; PM us; or email us.

Q: What series do you translate for?
A: Anything that is listed in our interests.

Q: The files are .rar! My PC can’t do .rar. Can you please convert it to .zip?
A: Simple answer: NO. We zip it as .rar and we keep it as .rar. If your PC can’t unzip .rar, then you probably have winzip so go download winrar to unzip the files. Otherwise, we can’t help you. So do us both a favour and go download winrar before complaining.

Q: I can’t find (insert series’ name here)!
A: Check our tags. We tag every entry with the series’ name.
Note: We do not tag the pairings; only the series’ name.

Q: You don’t scanlate the doujinka’s notes and SFX. Why not?
A: Because it takes too much time. If it’s relevant to the story, then we do. But the majority of the time, we don’t touch it, especially SFXs because we believe that the SFXs give the doujinshi its Japanese flair.

Q: How do I know who I’m talking to?
A: The majority of the time, it is Ai-kun. If you wish to talk to Kei-chan, please leave a message and she’ll get back to you.

Q: Are you recruiting?
A: Currently, no. “addiction” is Ai-kun and Kei-chan’s little pet project, and we have no desire at the moment to expand it into a large scanlation group.

Q: I’m in a scanlation group, and I was wondering if you’d like to do a joint project/join our group.
A: Thank you, but like it is said above, “addiction” is a pet project of ours and we’d like to keep to ourselves for a while because scanlating is still new to us. Maybe sometime later in the near future if we plan to keep doing this little hobby…?

Q: I’m in a scanlation group and I was wondering if you minded if we used your translations and converted it to .
A: Feel free to do so as long as you credit us. It’d be nice if you linked back to us.

Q: Do you have a fixed schedule for updating or…?
A: We’re a bi-annual group—we update twice a year: Summer (June – September) and Winter (November – January). This can range from a large scanlation dump to several mini-dumps. Other times of the year, we are not active.

Q: I really like this doujinshi, so I was wondering where I could get it!
A: Try jpqueen.

Q: Can we redistribute your scanlations?
A: Yes, as long as you’d kindly link back to our LJ. We’d also prefer if you used our links instead of uploading it onto separate servers yourself.
