scans_daily suspended

For all members of scans_daily: the community has been suspended for posting copyrighted material without the permission of copyright holders, which is against LiveJournal's ToS. Before you ask:

1) At this time we don't know who made the complaint. But guys, we don't want this to turn into a witch hunt.

2) No, we don't have backups, but we're looking into recovering our entries. ETA: pandanoai made a backup early this month. You'll need this to view it. acroamatica has it mirrored here.

3) skalja set up a backup comm on insanejournal some time ago. If you're in dire need of scans, go here for now. ETA: A while ago, sir_razorback set up a message board for the comm here. comics_scans is another scan comm on eljay. Their rules and culture are a bit different from ours. If you join, be sure to read the userinfo before posting. stubbleupdate has set up noscans_daily. Please join, so we can keep our community together.

4) No, this will not be the end of us. Vive les scans!

5) ETA: Since people are asking about eljay's stance on fair use, from the TOS:

LiveJournal and its designates shall have the right, but not the obligation, to remove any content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable, or that infringes or is alleged to infringe intellectual property rights. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content. Furthermore, LiveJournal reserves the right to limit access to your journal, if found in violation of the TOS, including without limitation the Member Conduct described below, by removing the journal and related user information from the member directory, search engine, and all other methods used in conjunction with finding LiveJournal's users.

and

[members agree not to] Upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights of any party



ETA: Guys, do me a favour and link to this post in your personal journals/blogs/whatever. I don't want people to get misinformation. I'm monitoring the comments and will be around to answer questions.

ETA: Update post here.



The mod team is looking at our options; check this space for updates.


A real shame. If you care about DC or Marvel, it's easy to find out what they're publishing (if you already have the motivation). But the smaller publishers? As a member of s_d, I could count on regular previews of random stuff that I wouldn't otherwise have known about.

And while no community is completely free of arguments, I agree with what I've seen a few people say: s_d was perhaps the most welcoming community for female comics fans. While some are accusing s_d of being too snarky and bashing comics, is it /really/ different from what goes on in the comments threads of major comics newssites and forums? IMO, those places were worse, and also far too insider-y; stereotypical rabid superhero fanboys everywhere, not the most charming people. If s_d is gone for good, it won't make me start reading Newsarama instead.

BTW, didn't Nine Inch Nails top the 2008 Amazon mp3 sales chart with an album they'd allowed to be partly downloaded for free on their site: I remember hearing something like that. In general, I thought music publishers had realised that people will pay for something instead of pirating if they feel the price is appropriate? When I quit reading X-Men a couple of years ago, it seemed half the issue was ads and prices were rising.

s_d was perhaps the most welcoming community for female comics fans

As a female fan I agree with this 100%. Not only that, but there was discussion and debate. I love, love, loved reading essays that had been painstakingly scanned, researched and compiled about different comic book characters.
It made me look at comics in a whole new light and I think increased my respect for a medium that doesn't often get a lot of respect.
When you have people who are so passionate about comics and defend their favourite characters/writers, I think that can only be a good thing.
Not only did I go on eBay to buy comics I saw posted on S_D, but I encouraged others to check it out.
I also wanted to say to the mods they have done an excellent job in respectfully apologizing to Mr. David, but at the same time also getting their point across and making sure their actions were clearly understood.
I really, really do hope this community builds up elsewhere.

Sad, sad thing to happen. I loved the wit and charm of the community - S_D used to be truly brilliant, most of the time.

It was also an invaluable promotional tool, and a resource for us foreigners: S_D allowed us to find out things well worth of our money, mail and internet orders.

For me, the discovery was Deadpool - Joe Kelly's cornerstone series, Gail Simone's run (and Agent X! Oh, how I loved it, and was Tasky a complete badass), Fabian's pairing with Cable (which turned Nate into a guy you could actually root for).

So, while I agree that any future iteration may need stricter modding, and that authors deserve a word in the process (per Gail's kindly suggestion), thank you, everybody.

Thanks for writing this down, I found it and am happy to be in the loop.

Hi! My name is Kitty, and I wasn't an active or registered member of S_D but I was a definite fan of what you guys had built. I hate what's happened here, and I look forward to seeing S_D rebuild. What I'm about to say is in no way meant to interfere with the community's efforts to rebuild or to act in any form of replacement for the rebuilding efforts already underway.

That said, I'm a member of a new comics messageboard and I've gotten permission to send a warm and welcoming open invite to the S_D community members. The board is run by a lesbian couple, and we're trying to build a different kind of messageboard, one free of the stink of locker room fratboy testosterone that so much of online fandom is tainted with. The Scans_Daily community was famous for being female-friendly and open to LGBT members and concerns, and those are exactly the kind of things we'd like to encourage at our board.

By no means are we trying to snipe from the S_D community, but if any of you would like to try the messageboard experience and would like to get in on the ground floor on a new place that is friendly to female and gay comics fans (though the straight boys are welcome too if they behave!), we'd absolutely love to have you there.

Right now there are no ads, and I'm not making a dime for this. I'm not even a moderator. But after the bad experiences I've had with some of the boys club comic boards on the net, and given the friends both old and new I've met in just a short time in the new digs, I'd like to see this take off and have the kind of vibrant, intelligent, and open-minded community that makes it worth it to be a fan.

If that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, or just would like to take a look at, the address is at

Please bear with us, we're new and there's a lot of design and community-building work to be done before we're where we want to be. There's a lot of content I'd like to see that just isn't there yet, like webcomics, fanfiction, and reviews and discussions that will require some time and some input from a larger pool of talent than we currently have. But please, come in, look around, and if you would, maybe stick around. We'd love to have you.

I loved s_d! shocked, sad and lost without it! certainly for the scans, but i'll miss the fun and witty dialog. I bought a lot of comics thanks to s_d. especially will miss the historic old comics and the intellegent commentary on same.add my 2 cents to the outrage. long time lurker with no scanner.

I was wondering what happened! I goggled scans_daily and found your post! Thanks for posting the info!

Thanks for the info, I was wondering what happened. :(
