Vote For May's CSoTM!

Post by Kai Lien » Apr 15th, '05, 15:48

Ni Hao!

Welcome to May's Chinese Series of the Month (CSoTM) Poll.

As the name implies, the CSoTM is dedicated to seeding completed Chinese drama series—be they from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Taiwan—with ENGLISH subs. This is an important stipulation and it must be understood from the outset.
Repeat : CSoTM is for Chinese drama series with ENGLISH subs only.
There will be no CSoTM seeding of Chinese drama series without ENGLISH subs, period.

The CSOTM will be monthly for short series with an extension for longer series.
For the what, why, and how’s of a SoTM, please see this thread by puccakiss79.

Please note: to qualify for voting privileges, you must have at least 10 posts.
This is to prevent users from creating multiple new accounts for the sole purpose of padding the vote count.
More info can be found at this thread.

And be forewarned: There are definite ways to detect cheaters, so don’t even think about cheating to get your desired drama to win. Confirmed cheaters will be dealt with in a stern but judicious manner. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

For May's CSoTM, voting will close on April 30th, 2007.
Seeding for the winning series will then begin on the May 1st, 2007 and ends May 31th, 2007.

A great big thank you to all the volunteer seeders, without you this would not be possible. :wub:
If any seeder cannot help seed this month, please PM either Habukie or myself to let us know ASAP. Thanks again!

Ok, so now for the fun part.

Without further ado, we present the candidates for May's CSoTM:

Name in lavender = seeder has an incomplete series

Candidate nominations for the next CSOTM should be posted in this thread, but remember that nominations should be for completed series, and the completed series should hopefully have declared volunteers. (It’s pointless to vote for a series if there are no seeders willing to seed if and when it wins.)

Completed list of Chinese dramas can be found here. CSOTM needs you! Please volunteer to seed if you can. :-)

Have fun voting, play fair, and let's make our CSoTM a successful one!

Cheers,
AiRen

Rock on! Ancient series time!

If I didn't already have 3 Kingdoms, I'd totally be going for that. But out of the rest...a Jin Yong adaptation sounds good...Anyone else seen Crimson Sabre already and want to comment?

haha ancient series!

the main character is the same for 3 of those series (Chess Warriors, Duke of Mt. Deer, and Happy&Lucky), and if i remember correctly, he's a pretty funny character in all three :P

it surprises me that i've seen many of these before (rented on vhs tapes XD), including the three mentioned above, since i've never seen many of the j/kdramas that have made it onto the series of the week/month

anyways, nice banners :] very pretty~!

I was wondering when you'd comment on her eye-catching new avatar; now I wanna know where it's from. :P I noticed thetenken changed his wu xia avatar as well; maybe I should consider switching mine too...

Dicky was never my kind of actor...humor is great but his is too much for me. I guess I never forgave him for destroying my fav Monkey King character :glare: Though I suppose that's more the script's problem than his.

Beautiful work on the banners, Kai Lien; I especially like the sword in the Crimson Sabre one. But since no one's voting for that one...let's go Step into the Past!

Series, which one?!

Post by Xr8-S » Apr 19th, '05, 07:22

I want just about all of them, I really don't know which one to pick at the moment. I'd be happy if Chess Warriors, Crimson Sabre, Duke Of Mount Deer or The Switch win.

I've got A Step Into The Past and I am currently seeding it.

By the way with Crimson Sabre, does it include the episode that Jem failed to capture & upload? I think it was either ep 7or 8.
If it is then I'll vote for that, just to be able to get that missing ep.

yea.. i haven't voted yet, and since I haven't seen many ancient series, they all look interesting. I think I'm leaning towards.... A Step into the Past...

Happy voting everyone!! :wub: :D

No it doesn't include the missing episode. I downloaded the raw of the missing ep before...dunno if anyone's interested.

Vote for Happy and Lucky! :P It needs seeds. :D Or Chess Warriors, that looks pretty good too.

How is the downloading going to broken up. Personally I think downloading indvidually would not be a good idea. considering step and swtich are both 40 episdoes long. To batch or not to batch is the quesiton.

Ok Kai Lien, I'll vote for Chess Warriors. You have the raw version of the missing ep, then I hope you would upload it then.

All of them are batched as either 1 large torrent containing all the episodes, or 2 torrents containing half and half. :wub: This thread is a informative read too. :-)

I think, the Switch is also titled something "phoenix" or whatever. But anyways, that series is really funny and I gotta say, DAMN SHE'S FINE! ZHANG TING is like one of the hottest girl! MY VOTE GOES TO THE SWITCH!

BTW, is it in cantonese or whatever the original voices are.

Alot of ppl are going to be disappointed if the switch wins because this series is horrible. I stopped watching after the 6th episode. Step into the Past was a memorable drama that hooks you after the first episode. I have the Switch, but im refusing to help seed it, because I personally dislike it.

I had started getting The Swtich awhile back but after watching the first ep I could pretty much tell it was going to be along the lines of trying-hard-to-be-witty-but-ending-up-lame. Which is a shame because I really enjoy seeing Vincent Jiao :-( I don't know, it may interest some people and that's fine, but vote for Step if you're not sure because it sounds like the most promising one...Hope I don't have to eat my words later :P

Woah these are all pretty long series except for Chess Warriors, which means the seeding will continue for 2 months right? Go ancient series! =] I'm not sure what to vote for at this moment. Hmmm...we'll see, we'll see :-)

If The Switch does win, could we possibly split the torrents into smaller batch because I don't have 7gb of space to seed 20 eps at once.

if you use bitcomet, you can select the files to download, so you can choose not to download all 40 episodes at once. :-)


btw, the chinese name for the switch is "tou long zhuan feng" which literally means "stealing dragon and replacing with phoenix" and actually means a "switch/swap". I believe this is the other name that people have been trying to recall. 8)

lol I'm actually one of the seeders for The Switch so I'm not downloading any eps. With the 2 batch torrents I'd have to have 20 eps on my HD at once in order to seed. When I signed up, the eps were available as individual torrents.

I'm a seeder for this series too and thats the only reason why I havent burned it off my 'puter. yea, 13 gigs is quite a lot for lots of people. Err, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I am pretty sure they are sticking to the one complete series torrent as stated here. :unsure:

Don't worry too much about the batch file size and hdd space..
Since there are 5 seeders for the Switch.. if it wins.. divide by 40 episodes..
that means, each person will only need to take care of 8 episodes which is ~2.8GB

How to set your client to selective seeding:
-in your client, set your downloads to incremental allocation instead of pre-allocation.
-download the torrent, stop it, then copy your completed files into the folder (make sure the file names are the same as the one in the folder first)
-go into the torrent details, select the files you are NOT seeding and mark them as DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
-start up the torrent again, you should now be uploading and seeding the files you copied into the folder/
-so you should only be seeding 8 episodes which is about 2.8GB

IF Switch wins, this is probably how we'll do it.. if another series win, we'll figure something out along the same pattern..

all good?
:)

LOL how is the plot good? A girl who gets abandoned in a whore house. Maybe you find it appealing if your a perverted 15 or 16 year who gets off on that train of thought. The Switch is good for individuals who dont enjoy deep story lines and are looking for meaningless trite comedic action.

Why there is people that write 10 short post in the first 15 minutes after they register?
Why 10 short posts, why not 20 or maybe 30? Weird

I voted for CRIMSON SABRE since I love JIN YONG. I heard that this is a fairly decent adapation, too. Kwong Wah's an amazing actor! :lol I voted for this series but it looks like the SWITCH will win. I've seen this series already and it's humourous fun.

Hopefully in the next round of series to choose from, STARRY STARRY NIGHT and CRIMSON SABRE will be on the contender's list. I really wanna see these two series! :mrgreen:

ahh, i wanna watch STARRY STARRY NIGHT too! :w00t: the seeds are really low or zero on jem's site. but anyways, CRIMSON SABRE is being seeded right now if you want to start grabbing what you can of the 10 gigs.

Actually the switch is available in jem's website and also in irc. So, if we vote for anything other than the switch, then we can get two shows!!! That's like killing two birds with one stone!!!.... well... just a friendly suggestion.... I am a big fan of the switch too. It's just that I've already downloaded them from irc a few days ago. Completed all 40 episodes in 2 days!! hehe...The server has really fast sending rate. :lol
If anyone is interested in dlding from irc, see this past post

Ooops!! My bad! I failed to read your post properly. I didn't read the part "seed 20 eps at once". :P
