Hey John,
It's been a while since I setup Zectas page on Baka-Tsuki, So far all is good and well.
Since you have full complete volume, I set it up as full Original Light Novel rather than a teaser (without BT mods consent, but since its been few week and mods done nothing to Zectas page so I think its OK.).
I was planning on putting the Zectas link on BT's sidebar. But only mods can edit BT's front page so we need to inform the BT's mods to get it done.
The problem is that BT have strict OLN screening, but I do think Zectas will pass most of it.
Should I request BT's mods to check it out and approve the project??
Yes, please do. I'm not familiar with the rules in BT at all. ^_^

That's okay. We're here for the long run... I really hope we get more translators for LMS as well. I want to do a weekly release soon... The next chapters are 30% longer T_T

Hi,
Nice work with your novel, it's really entertaining to read.
My one suggestion would be to make main character - Nash - more mature. For a man who supported his family since he was 12, worked his ass off for 6 years straight he behaves like a typical teenager with anger issues. Always getting worked up whenever he hears name "Tristan", clenching his fists and grinding his teeth - it makes him look like spoiled, unstable brat who got his toy broken.
I guess maybe it's your intention  to make him a really emotional character, but with the way life has treated him I think it would be reasonable to expect him to act more like a grown-up man.
Of course he would still want to exact his revenge, but he would understand that "revenge is the dish best server cold".

Best regards :)

I see your point... but does he really come out as a spoiled brat? I think I'll have him work his anger at Tristan internally.

Maybe "spoiled brat" is exaggeration, but still the way he acts sometimes makes him look really immature. For example when he posted his first video online and became laughing stock he wanted to start his "black list" and kill everyone who laughed at him - it seems that he has really low self-esteem wanting to kill for laughing at him.
I think it would be nice if instead of getting all worked-up when he hears Tristan's name, he would just smile to himself and think something like "I will get this dick one day".

Looking at LMS and relationship between BardRay and Weed:
the cool one - Weed - doesn't give a damn about BardRay (at least till v22ch06, can't talk about something I haven't read yet  ;) )
and BardRay's hate towards Weed , his thirst for revenge, makes him look pitiful.

Cutting to the chase - in my opinion it would be really nice if Nash would step by step evolve in more mature "cool guy". Looking forward for next chapters of Zectas :)

I understand your point, but Smoke has a different persona than Weed. I'll try to make him act more mature though...

hi john i got 1 question for u- could u pls stop using polish words such as rzeka otaczać and so on as names of items places and persons?. I don't know why u decided using polish words in your novel (though u did used some other language as well beside eng and polish) but for me native of poland that sounds very weird and i don't like it. In my opinion u should better make those name's in english. This way those names will be more understandable to others and less irritating for me. Thanks for listening to my hate. Beside this matter quite good novel. wish u luck on path of writer.

There's no way to skip out Rzeka and and Otaczac now because those are significant names in the story. But I will take note of your request and never use Polish words again...

I think a term glossary at the end would be nice for all the different stats and places so you could see how each stat effects some of the others. I know that smoke reads a book telling him about the basic stats but further detail would be appreciated

There is already an existing glossary of terms. If you want a more specific word you could list them up in the page and I'd be happy to add them.

You can find them here:
