F-list, I am going to rant. And not put it under an lj-cut because this deserves attention. I'm going to sound harsh so if this is not for you, you may ignore me. Otherwise, READ THIS CAREFULLY.
OKAY PEOPLE, THIS WILL BE IN CAPS LOCK. I WILL NOT REPEAT MYSELF. THIS CONCERNS EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWS DRAMAS THAT ARE FANSUBBED.1. WHEN IT COMES TO WAITING, IMPATIENCE IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN.
2. FANSUBBERS ARE PEOPLE AND NOT ROBOTS. THEY HAVE LIVES.
3. EPISODES ARE NOT SUBBED OVERNIGHT (except in very rare cases). THERE IS USUALLY A TEAM WHO WORKS ON A WHOLE EPISODE. GO BACK TO RULE #2.
4. IF IT HASN'T BEEN RELEASED YET, THEN IT IS NOT DONE YET. DO NOT DEMAND FROM THE FANSUBBERS. WAIT. SEE RULE #1 AND #2 AND #3 ABOVE.
5. AT THE VERY LEAST, SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION BY THANKING THE SUBBERS.
6. IF DOWNLOADING FROM TORRENTS. SEED. EVEN FOR JUST A WHILE.
7. DO NOT CLAIM ANYTHING THE FANSUBBERS DID AS YOUR OWN.
8. LASTLY, DO NOT ASK ME IF ANYTHING HAS BEEN RELEASED. ESPECIALLY IF IT IS SOFTSUBS. I AM ONLY (mostly) CONCERNED ABOUT THE RELEASE DATES OF THE FANSUBBING GROUP(s) I'M IN. IF WE ARE FRIENDS ON YAHOO, I WILL POST ANY RELEASES I KNOW AS MY STATUS MESSAGE. IF IT'S NOT MY STATUS MESSAGE, EITHER I DON'T KNOW/ IT'S BEEN RELEASED FOR ALMOST A DAY ALREADY/ I WATCH IT UNSUBBED/ I DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT DRAMA TOO MUCH.
And now, I'll be posting this Summer's JDrama Fansubbing map as some people are actually asking me for it.
As usual, with my recommendations (yellow = highly recommended, pink = recommended, green = curious, gray = undecided) and now, the format of the sub is specified: Hard or Soft. Remember that my recommendations have a bias on JE boys and Tenimyu actors.
I was supposed to upload this with Google Docs but apparently, it hates me so I'm back to using MF. Still in 2 formats, Excel 2007 and Excel 97-2003
