please note: thetenken seems to be on a summer vacation right now. i will try to take over in his absence. (i'll probably be liable to his expressions of displeasure. :lol )

much thanks to everyone for seeding the current JSOTW (SUMMER SNOW).


without further ado, i'll use thetenken's wording........

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST. IF YOU DO NOT, YOU MAY BE LIABLE TO THETENKEN'S EXPRESSIONS OF DISPLEASURE.

Taking nominations for the next series of the week. Let me know what you want to add to the poll and I'll add it. From this point forward only series that have a volunteer seeder will be put up into the poll. People can nominate whatever they want, but the series won't become a poll option until there is a volunteer seeder...

PLEASE NOMINATE AND VOTE ONLY FOR THE DRAMAS OFF THE COMPLETED DRAMAS LIST:

What is a series of the week? More Info Here
Since there are now a substantial number of torrents on this site, we have implemented a "Series of the Week," where we could dedicate most of the bandwidth to a particular series during that week. This helps in a couple of ways:

1. People will know what series are available and have seeds, rather than just waiting and hoping for them to be seeded at some later date.

2. For those seeders who have DVD burners and have already burnt their collections to DVD/CD, then with the series of the week they know which series can be pulled off of DVD to help seed, minimizing troublesome multiple DVD loading.

3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward those specific torrents, rather than having people request series across the board.

Remember, D-Addicts was started for the community, and being a part of the community means sharing. If you don't share, then everyone loses (refer to JEM's dropping of Cdramas), and a good thing open to all may become a private party.

I take no responsibility for deleting poll entries if there are no seeds. No complaints, as this is a community effort. If the community doesn't want to share, then oh well...

ok, here's some notes regarding this JSOTW......

* i added 'pretty girls' and 'tokyo wankei' as options, but i need volunteer seeders. if no one helps seed these, you guys are out of luck. if you can be a volunteer seeder for either of these series, please let me know, and i'll put your name up.....

* i removed 'hitonatsu no papa e' because i maintain confidence that Phinn will release the dvd version of this drama. if he announces that he will not be doing this release, i'll put it back up.

* i thought about putting 'trick' up as a jsotw, but i know there are three seasons on the d-a tracker. should we do a triple-jsotw, and make nominate trick as the first-ever jsotM?? keep all seasons of trick seeded for three weeks or so? or vote each season separately? are volunteer seeders feeling up to this task?

let me know your thoughts!

Great idea! Let all 3 series run for a longer time, at least a month. I got a few episodes but some might be hard to get so we should have somebody seeding, at least at the beginning. Not good to run a jsotm without sources :D

O_O Egad, Summer Snow won, and my friend hasn't returned my DVDs yet. >_< How can I seed at this rate?

I guess it's a good idea to have a triple-jsotw :thumleft: I have trick and I can seed it but my upload is reeeeeally slow and I don't think you guys would finish the series in a week if I'm the only seeder :lol so if there's any other volunteer you can sign me up

yamatsumi, there are a few people DL Tricks right now and they'll help out automatically. You seeding will surely help no matter how slow 8) Thx

I'll help seed Tokyo Wankei. I'll also seed Trick 1 and 2, not 3: don't have it. I back the idea of Trick as JSOTM.

Tokyo Wankei! >.< I have episodes 1-8, so I can help seed those. And I'm still trying to get past 95.6% on episode 9 x___x;;

by jholic
yukio/gryzze/shikirocks: much thanks for coming through for me. i really appreciate it.

to others volunteering to seed, i also would appreciate your help, but i can't list you unless you have the entire series.

koala: hotman was a previous jsotw, so i'm gonna have to see how i can work it into the poll again. if others nominate it, then it would show cause for a re-nomination. it's the same for any other series nomination (beach boys/under one roof - steven).

i know someone else mentioned 'kamisama mou sukoshi dake' in the previous poll. i hesitate to add this series, since amrayu may re-do the previous episodes. i've still got my fingers crossed.

otherwise, i'd just like to thank everyone who's making my life a little easier running the JSOTW in thetenken's absence. honto ni arigatou!

Can I nominate Sekai No Chushin De, Ai Wo Sakebu? :unsure: I think the series has only 1 more ep. that needs to be subbed by sars..

there should be enough seeds for that series since it's still quite recent.

Posted: Jul 28th, '05, 20:25
by odino
I think that's a joke, nominating a series that was newly uploaded just a month ago up till recently. Without checking there are probably still seeders for each episode. I would think that series isn't going to be a SotW for at least another few months.

vote for pretty girls :P


n can i nominate fighting girls for the next series plzz, i love a series with aya hirayama in it, shes a wonderful actor :-)

Wow, Pretty Girls! I saw half of this dorama years ago. But forgot the title so I never finished it! I must thank this topic for reminding me, I'll vote.

I totally agree with Ayahirayama, the "Fighting Girls" sounds cool!!!!

Voted for Pretty Girls (though I also I want to see Tokyo Wankei because of Nakama Yukie).

Posted: Jul 31st, '05, 04:13
by tainted_crimson
I vote for Beautiful Life or Tokyo Wankei, because both are awesome and I'm all for spreading around great dramas. Now I'm going to go beat myself for having converted both series to VCD format and not just burning them as data as I do now, else I could have easily helped with the seeding. Sorry!

just outta curiosity..will previous series of the weeks ever be re-elected/focused on? just curious because i've only got some of those and would be interested in getting another chance sometime in the future to get them

Posted: Aug 2nd, '05, 17:02
by odino
You can nominate them but it wouldn't be nice for everyone else if they are re-elected so quickly. It would be better to get other shows up first.

yeah well i don't mean immediately..i just mean every once in awhile it would be nice if some old ones got renominated

Posted: Aug 3rd, '05, 05:06
by jholic
re-nominating old series depends on a lot of factors. i think one of the biggest factors would be how many other people want it re-nominated as well....
