I hope that I'm not the only one who is interested in how this all began, who are the founders, when did the other people join and why did you start a scanlationgroup in the first place? I think it will be very funny to read for newcomers like me ^^

@ willow

Wow really thats who that banned guy is. I always wanted to ask especially after i was looking at FH and saw Max was banned there as well. So that explains it i guess. I even ran across B's Profile there as well. Interesting story

He was actually a trainee that was made a trainee around same time as me and kiba
I was apart of the spamthread which was group of members who post primarily in the spam section which was very fun, originally Max was my friend however Max desperately craved attention all the time even though he was polite at first, he started spamming the Skip beat section of FH which pissed of the queen of SkipBeat Scorpio Moon who proclaimed Max to be an idiot and made everyone give him the cold shoulder, he being the attention craving idiot groveled to be forgiven. A few months later after a hiatus he was elected a position of power which was a horrible idea because he believed himself to be an "Anarchist" and had many conflicts with Kiba who ran 95% of the WS with JamJam who was on kiba's side. I was also in Kiba's pocket (because kiba has f-ing charisma! and charmed the heck out of everyone!) and I mostly trained newbs who wished to clean. So I left with kiba, jamjam, b-one (which was the remaining workforce) pretty much leaving FH with only a few tired cleaners

me, kiba, B-one, jam, willow and max all moved over from FH.

FH's admin and moderators pretty much failed and everything fell apart. FH was a lil different to all the other groups i was in... and well, it was already kinda falling apart when I joined >_>

oh, and max kinda loved FH too much Mad

I read your applying thread on FH and.. It's great to know how much someone can improve ^^ I'm glad that you didn't ask me those questions when I joined, because the answers would be bad -.- I seriously doubt if I'll ever find the time to work on a serie regually...

But forget that and thank you so much for the story!! It was a great read ^^

@kiba /sobs you're story was amazing! I read like six times XD
It was even suspenseful despite the fact I already knew what happened!
and btw my pages weren't that good remember it took me 3 weeks to figure out
I wasn't suppose to denoise with the photoshop feature but topaz XD
of course everything was so confusing with that setup I probably
could've gone on forever making mistakes like that

^replying to that.

Saddly FH was one hell of a team. And what I might add to the storywith my own is how baddly it got for me and the others to quit that place. (Kiba doesn't know about this either so I'll be writting the long version ^^)

I first joined Franky-house.com a few days after the site was created (4 years ago). At first franky-house was founded by Venicia and Mr.Prince and worked on a forum section at mangahelpers doing LQ-MQ and HQ One Piece scans. I joined FH because the site was new and I couldn't land a single record at bludscans.com (for peeps who don't know the history... bludscans + binktopia = binktopia, + Mangashare = mangashare + binktopia, that's how they got so big, it's the remnants of at least 4 teams) Anyhow, FH's arcade was ripe for the taking. I got all the highscores easily.... and got them stolen the next day by a a guy called Fiendish_Imp (who is still at FH)... we became kinda friends and talked around the forum (at one point I owned half of the post on FH, I was quite the spammer)

The staff began talking with us and we had fun. I eventually became a mod there. I also became a international translator, every week I would translate the OP chapter to French... An then I wanted to help FH so I became a typesetter. And then that was boring so I learned the hardships of editing (the hard way, without actions and with neat image lol). More interesting people joined, we all became really good. At some point we were the force to be reckoned with, we were 15-20 active cleaners. We ruled the shonen jump. The raws would come out, someone opened the thread and we took 1 to 3 pages max to clean. Sometimes you came in the workstation and all the pages were taken. A chapter from scratch took us 3 hours to release. It was amazing. We often concentrated on OP while bludscans and other worked on Naruto. I believe that why we ruled OP for so long. It was fun, we would comment on each others' page. Compare tricks. We even made cleaning contests. The page was sent by pm at the same time to everyone by a judge. And we had an hour to upload it to the site and see who had the best result (yeah cleaning a page to MQ took an hour back then). Lot's of text... but just to make you realize that this place was heaven for me and my friends. That worked for 1.5 year+. During that time, I even was made admin of FH while Venicia was gone because of some mysterious sickness. And then one of the staff (kenjimaru) who was brown-noser (also an admin), got some kind of weird power trip. And I couldn't take it anymore, so I left FH for the first time.

I came back 6 months later to see that most of my friends were gone. That only a handfull of them were working their ass of coping with the same amount of job as before. Kenjimaru was nowhere to be found an a weird girl named folenangel had taken over the site. Venicia's daughter (songaka) was now the boss...It was weird =/. Anyhow, I stayed around. I tried to help and twice my work was disregarded by her. So I decided not to help and try to teach those awfull n00bs who were recruiting Wink. FH was already the shadow of it's former self. Rengwei and finally Linkmasta left. They were tired of doing everything by themselves. Folen tried, I have to gave her that but it didn't work in the end 'cause she was kicked out for being an awfull thief/backstabber. So for the last year, I trained here and there, and mostly lurked around for old time sakes.

An then you know the rest, burn joined, kiba joined, max was an ass. Jam joined. Songaka was an ass. I was asked to be admin, I refused. Max accepted, I quit and came to this funny place where I worked more on manga that I had in 2 years~

So that's the story for me. Hope that this satisfies everyone's curiosity^^. Feel free to ask any question. The timeline might be a bit fuzzy... a lot went on during those years.
