4. PDF generation - gone?

Wuxiapedia used to have a "Download a PDF version" link under every article or translation for members. However, the implementation of this feature is not up to scratch and eats up a lot of disk space and processing time, as well as causing a few problems, so we have decided to remove it for now.

5. When will novel X / book Y of novel X be translated?

Translating novels is a hobby of our translators and we all want to complete as many chapters or novels as possible, which is our goal for wuxiapedia. However, it is a lot of work and we sometimes are very busy with our lives, so some translations may be delayed until further notice. Still, if you really, really want something, it's best to send a request (with lots of hand-kissing, compliments, virtual chocolates and flowers) to the translators and they may do something about it. :-)
