Japanese SotW Poll (4/30/06) - From the Heart

Post by mizune » Apr 16th, '06, 18:14

Howdy folks,

I know the new contender for this week is one that was an early SoTW, but hopefully this will bring some attention to the need for more volunteer seeders :whistling: (I think we're about due for another Flashback poll anyhow, so here's a brief glimpse ^_^; ). In any case, this drama is a true gem, and exhibits one of the best portrayals of a character with a mental disability/disorder in jdrama (a genre that was pretty popular in the early-mid 90s). Definitley a classic.

Hopefully, we can get a little more competition going this week. :p

If you're willing to seed any of the series in the poll, please post a reply here or in the recently updated [url=http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=23787]JSOTW: Looking For Volunteer Seeders[/url] thread or PM any one of the Geinou. There are still several series which don't have any volunteer seeders, so do volunteer for those! The more seeders we have, the more variety there will be in the future JSoTW polls.

A million thanks goes out to those seeding the current JSoTW (Shotgun Marriage (Dekichatta Kekkon)). Thank you for your support! :salut:

In the now immortal words of thetenken........

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:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3500

What is a series of the week? [url=http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5810]More Info Here[/url]
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.

We 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...

Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Go on, kiddies... explore the forum a bit... :)

I voted for From the Heart because I'm mildly autistic myself and I think this series would be interesting since the female lead is autistic...

Hey everybody, just a reminder that THERE IS NO VOLUNTEER SEED FOR FROM THE HEART yet... hopefully, somebody will come forward, but if that doesn't happen, it's not going to "win"...

gee, i was hoping there would be more of a contest.... maybe i should've picked the other one i had in mind... :s

^LOL, probably not a good idea to put up a series w/ no volunteers. If it gets popular on the poll and doesn't have seeds, there may be a violent online revolt against you, mizune :lol :whistling:

^ bring 'em on... :rambo:
:lol

but the point is, we need more volunteer seeders...especially for the older, classic series...
the JSoTW is based purely on the generosity of the peer pool and just doesn't work unless ppl volunteer... :/

Well, the series in the current vote seem to have some amount of support... it's just that for the past couple polls, they've just been getting clobbered by the new entry...
I want to give them a chance, but the new picks haven't been working very well... :fight:

So we'll see what happens next week...

It seems like you are missing a volunteer :roll . I've seeded From the Heart before as a VSS and I can help out again. It's actually one of my favorites, so I'm happy more people will get a chance to see it. Hope we can get one more person to assist with seeding. :whistling:

I may be a little early, but I've started seeding From the Heart. When I volunteered, I forgot I was going out of town in a few days. :lol So anyway, I will be seeding a few episodes at a time until all 12 are seeded well. Please keep it going! :thumleft:

I managed to download the whole series of Ohsama no Resutoran and I will be able to seed even if it doesn't win. However, I will seed only between 10 am to 6 pm GMT+08 time.
I do not want the ending part; I just want the happy part...
