Ayy thank you for the announce!

And CRAZY concidence you’re the guy that helped kick off the original seeding initiative for libgen with your dessalines/torrent-tracker-health tool. Thank you for that, the success of the seeding project wouldn’t have been possible without you.

Library Genesis is the platform for the free library, founded in 2008 by bookwarrior.

freeread.org has a good summary, Wikipedia has some additional infos.

Also https://www.vice.com/en/article/pa7jxb/archivists-are-trying-to-make-sure-a-pirate-bay-of-science-never-goes-down

The more the merrier ^^

The community still without any link to the mirrors, other sites or forums/places to comunicate.

libgen.fun is just focused on its own mirror, it does not recognize the other mirrors as true to the LG mission. The freeread.org wiki has some good info: http://freeread.org/reddit-libgen/
