Question concerning DMCAs
Could it be possible to make a page detailing what was DMCA'd for each project?

I'll take the example of Densetsu no Yūsha no Densetsu as it's difficult to understand what's going in there: full text links for the first series are still up, most chapters were however deleted while some others remain. For other volumes it's just the images... so, it's confusing. The translator seems to have stopped working on the second series after the strike, but an external translator picked it up. Now I wonder if it's allowed to let it continue, since the second series got at least some images removed.

It would be great to have something clear and detailed, as to know what exactly is affected; if it's a series globally, just some chapters or volumes, the images, only the english project or all the languages.
