What is scanlation?
Hello my new friend, let me introduce you to google.  Now run along and have a long and wonderful relationship together. (^_−)☆

So, what kind of projects do you do?
We currently scanlate shoujo, mature, josei, and romance.  Although, if you have the raws (and a translator to go with them) we will consider doing pretty much anything.

How do I get to your releases?
You can access our releases either through the project pages, the release date page, FG's online reader, or go to the forum. All of our projects are open to anyone who can read. Do not ask where the links are or what the passwords are, these questions will not be answered. Edit: Each chapter has a different password - so that means you need to read each post.

What is this %$&! password?
What first began as a rant (please refer to this page) over time became a fun treasure hunt game for our readers. So enjoy the thrill of the hunt!(⌒▽⌒)

Do you have an IRC?
Yes, you can either join us at #ForbiddenGarden@irc.irchighway.net or if you don't want to deal with downloading a client then you can just go to Forbidden Garden's webIRC.  No.


Your email is again...?
forbidden_garden@live.com


How do I get to your releases?
Wha?! Didn't you read the top where I already answered that? Again - You can access our releases either through the project pages, the reader, or go to the forum.  All of our projects are open to anyone who can read. Do not ask where the links are or what the passwords are, these questions will not be answered.  =.=


Do you need any help?
Why yes, yes we do!  Head on over to the Recruitment Page to find out what positions are currently open.


Woah! Your banner changes!! How does this work? Are you a magician??
Well, yes, I am in fact a magician, but I can't tell you how it works (mostly because I don't really know myself) - just google it and I'm sure you can find the code.


Can I make a banner?
Please do!! It's only by the awesome talents of you guys that we have pretty banners at all.


Why do you currently only scanlate shoujo and josei?
Because that's what interests us.


How come all of your projects are so lame?  I want you to translate [insert name].
Are YOU contributing anything to Forbidden Garden? No? Then get to steppin'!


Why didn't you respond to my email? 
I'm sorry, that's mostly my fault.  I have a bad tendency of opening messages and then getting distracted before I answer it.  If I don't write you back in a couple days time, feel free to email me again.


How do I get to your releases?
OH MY SWEET BABY JEBUS! If you ask this question one more time in my chatbox/email/pm/etc I will maul you down with a big mac truck!


Why did you drop or are taking forever on [insert project name]?
If you would like to provide usable scans/translators/editors for said project then we will be more than willing to pick it back up.  But until then - tough it out.


You seem a bit touchy -- are you sure you're stable?
Yes, yes, I'm fine...ish...no really I'm okay.  I think I had too much coffee today...


If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email me or find me on the forum.
