Yeah, they won't be back.
Users being able to download = less time on the site, fewer pop-ups and pop-unders, fewer page views, which equals less dosh.
This is quite like the Oh Internet debacle back in 2011, attempted bait and switch.
Popular site goes down for "maintenance" and loses features, promises are made that it will return "better than ever"
Features do not return, site is plastered with ads and/or watered down to make it more palatable for advertisers.
Some users stick around out of habit, a lot of users migrate to other sites or make new site(s) with the features of the old one.
Owners/moderators come out and decry users for being ungrateful, does nothing to address the issues said users have with the site.
Rinse and repeat.

Read quick, this account will probably be banned in a flash.

On another note, check out Tsumino's Alexa rank since August 2018 to now. Ooof!

i just googled their Alexa stats and its all downhill and in the red...

I'm kinda sad because i found this site when it was in its peak and didnt get to download my fav stuff before the feature was gone, and now F4kku's content are not available as well.

Think it'll be easier for me to just accept downloads wont ever be back and place my hopes that a new site will emerge :cry:

I would post a link to the every-fakku-book-ever-released torrents, but last time I did my post got deleted.

So I'll just say they exist.

Dang it, the reason I liked Tsumino so much was because I could download to read offline. My internet at home is so bad I can't even load 1/10 of an image before it gives up. I was able to download several comics while in town and read at my leisure. You can't read this stuff in public! You'll get arrested! Just downloading was relatively safe since you just had to do a few searches while no one was around and start the downloads, before switching to normal sites with Tsumino in the background. If the issue is "downloading = less ads looked at" then just wait until everyone leaves because there's no way to read without downloading... Not to mention several people only download after they know they like it, so these people are going to also have to find a new site that lets them do what they need.
