LNT site Annoucement COVID-19

Greetings everyone,

I have an important announcement to make in light of the recent developments around the globe with the COVID-19 being declared as a pandemic. As people may have experienced a lot of us have become redundant in our jobs as shops are closing down and only certain workers who are fortunate enough are able to keep their jobs and some are even able to work from home. Our site lightnovelstranslations is a website that is capable of providing that opportunity for workers to work from home and to deliver content for you avid readers.

The problem lies with the fact that our website has drastically reduced in our ad revenue with over 40% reductions in income. This is quite a big blow to the website as I am still on a loss and I am on a catch up where I am trying to recover funds lost due to my actions of hiring an influx of translators for the site using my personal income.

I know you as the reader’s love reading novels and have enjoyed the growth and expansion in recent times with a variety of website improvements across the board. We have recently upgraded our server a few months back to keep up with the demand as things started to load really slowly and sometimes this would lead to the site crashing.

I was also going to upgrade the site contents and functionality but that development has been delayed in light of the recent pandemic. Our site needs your help as much as ever and we are currently doing promotions to release more chapters to you readers for your enjoyment.

In these tough times I am still willing to invest my time and money and to continue paying for my translators on the site so that they can provide the content that you love and desire. I myself love to read and I love this site. I don’t know for how long I can maintain supporting my staff but I will do my best to continue paying them for as long as I am able.

We encourage readers to continue enjoying our novels and to read from the comfort and safety of your own homes and to take advantage of recent promotions on the site with the end goal of supporting the site so that we can continue to deliver content.

You can help support the site by donating to the novels that you love from the sidebar on the right-hand side (if you are on mobile scroll right down to find the donation bar).

Alternatively, become a Patreon with our website by clicking the link https://www.patreon.com/lightnovelstranslations and you can gain access to advanced chapters to your favorite novels.

  1. We appreciate your efforts translating and everything else you are doing.

  2. Thanks for all the work you do.

  3. Thanks Nefarin! Let’s hope this COVID situatiomn gets better soon.

  4. Sorry but I am confused.
    AD revenue is down because of COVID19?
    When there should be more readers, not less?

    Or is it WP screwing you?

  5. sadly i dont have much money myself atm, so i can do the 2nd best and thats turning off add blocker.

  6. Hiya all, thank you so much for your support!

    I just thought I help reply the AD revenue question, the ad revenue is down even when there are more readers as the advertising company cut the budgets due to COVID19, this means that even when there are more readers on the site, the CPM is much lower than normal, therefore the earnings dropped quite dramatically than normal. As of today, I saw that the earnings has now dropped further by 10%. It’s quite depressing to be honest.

    But on a positive note, I think Nefarian is very thoughtful to do have some of the novels participating in the bonus releases of 10 chapters in 2 weeks. I think it’s a kind thing to do and hopefully, it will brighten someone’s day if they are locked at home. Another novel is added now “Over the Inifinite” to the list of the bonus release, please enjoy and stay safe.
