Is asking for link or DL links of light novel or manga acceptable?

1 Answer 1


It's acceptable to ask for legal sources only.

    No, sadly Nyaa is not legal. We do have a working list of some legal anime-related media sources, though.

  • Light novels are not acceptable? Because I was planning to ask some DL link of a specific light novel. Sep 18, 2014 at 1:39

    Light novels are no different from any other media; if the source is not licensed properly, it's an illegal source.

  • I see, so if I ask for a DL link and someone answered an illegal source will I get a downvote for it? Sep 18, 2014 at 2:12

    No. When you ask the question, you ask for a legal source. If someone posts an illegal source as an answer, they will get the downvote, not you.

  • @ton.yeung tried googling it but can't find english translations on that novel. Sep 18, 2014 at 2:45
  • @キルア Alright thanks for the info, so which tag should I use when requesting for DL links? Ow and should I ask here or on beta? Sep 18, 2014 at 2:46
  • You'd ask on the main (beta) site. You can tag it with resources.
