Japanese SoTW (3/8/08) - Moto Kare

Post by InTr4nceWeTrust » Feb 24th, '08, 07:25

This is the last JSoTW not allowing nominees that have been nominated before. Feel free to nominate past winners from now on. I'll be TRYING to find all the PMs and posts from those that made nominations of past winners. Quite honestly, though, I suck. So please re-submit your nominees. Thanks.

What is the Japanese Series of the Week (SoTW)? More Info Here
Due to the substantial number of torrents on this site, we implemented a "Series of the Week," where we could dedicate bandwidth and seeding efforts to a specific series. This helps in several ways:
1. People will know which series was voted and will be seeded, 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, the series of the week gives them an opportunity to dust off those archives and help seed their favorites.
3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward 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). Bittorrent and DA works much better if you share as others have shared with you.

======================================================================

If you are willing to seed any of the series in the poll, please post a reply here or in the JSoTW: Looking For Volunteer Seeders thread or PM anyone of the mods or admins. There are still several series which do not have volunteer seeders, so any help would be greatly appreciated! The more seeders we have, the more variety we will have in future JSoTW polls!


Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Don't start spamming the forum, but this encourages you to get involved in some of those drama discussions!

@InTr4nceWeTrust - Seriously, I think there must be something wrong if that wasn't a favorite scene...I mean you got rain, fighting yakuza, and a tormented Tomoya ripping off his shirt to reveal an impressive set of...errr...tatoos. ^^
Ahh, I think I am going to have to go rewatch that now. cheers!

FYI, for those wanting Moto Kare to win, just download the JTV version instead because that one has 5 seeders at the moment. JTVs hardsubs are usually better quality for me anyways. Just a heads up.

Yes, you are correct but that is the soft sub version that is being nominated. I suggested the hardsub version by JTV which has better quality subs anyways and there are 5 seeders at the moment. JTV's version are usually always DVD rips and not TV rips.

i just think some of you are being unfair with the poll

last vote, someone directly influenced the result by promising to upload a series if people voted for the series he wanted. now people are giving sources to other series in the poll; well if 60 people jump on that moto kare torrent, it's not going to be so well seeded

let people vote for what they want; i mean, it's fine to say you like a series and why you like it, but intentionally saying things to decrease the chances of other series winning is unfortunate

oh, well, either way, i'll dl which ever one wins, as it's nice to have the series download quickly...

I hope this comment is not directed at me. I don't care whatsoever which drama wins. I have them all already. My comment was from the other day when Moto Kare looks like it wasn't gonna win so I was giving people who voted for it to have a chance to download it if they wanted the better hardsub version. I never mentioned which you should/should not vote for. Besides, it is perfectly acceptable to swing the poll in your favor by promising this or that or giving people alternatives. The only illegal way to swing the poll is if you have multiple accounts and vote multiple times.

If you want Moto Kare that badly, PM me your address(if in USA) and I'll send you the DVD w/ the version that's on the poll right now. I was gonna toss it away anyways b/c I prefer the JTV version. That way you can have it right away and then help seed also if it wins.

You can also have all of the following series if you want free of charge. I'll even pay the S/H since I was gonna throw them away anyways. I always keep the better quality ones and sometimes mistakenly make multiple copies:

Star no Koi (accidently burnt 2 copies)
Trick Season 1 (non DVD rip version)
Hero (JEM version)
Trick Season 2 (non DVD rip version)
The King's Restaurant (Non DVD rip version)
H2 (accidently burnt 2 copies)
Gokusen 2 (not SARS hardsub version which I liked better)
Majo no Jouken aka Forbidden Love (not the NYA! version)
Moto Kare (Soft sub version)
Attack No 1 (Not the JTV version)
Aishiteiru to Ittekure aka Say You Love Me (not the A.D Clan version)

"It's a dog-eat-dog world. And I'm wearing my Milkbone underwear." -- Norm @ Cheers

Since Day 1, the SoTW has ALWAYS been a "who can speak the loudest wins" event. No holds barred, people! I haven't seen it lately, but early on we used to spread our propaganda across the various drama topics, trying to organize people to vote for THEIR choice. If you feel strongly about a particular show, it is by design of SoTW that you use whatever means to influence others to vote your way. I wanted a series seeded because I didn't have it, so I offered an incentive. That's how the game is played!

One other thing... The reason people mentioned the JTV torrent for Moto Kare is that the logic of voting for a specific drama despite the torrents already being seeded well is a total waste. The reason for even coming up with the four choices is lack of seeding ANYWHERE - whether it is D-Addicts, JEM, JTV or whatever tracker there is. If JTV's torrents were already being seeded, then IMHO Moto Kare should not have even been a choice to begin with. The whole philosophy of SoTW is to encourage seeding of dead torrents, and NOT to increase seeding for torrents that already had seeding.

I only pick shows in the JSoTW Volunteer Seeders thread. The JTV version of Moto Kare has no volunteer seeders and does not qualify for the JSoTW. The softsub version is on the list and did not have any seeds when the poll started.

Two things here. First, the renzoku list linked is over one year old. The volunteers you see listed there are probably not even around anymore. There were several winners that were not seeded post-voting, and the age and accuracy of the list is the reason why. The JSoTW should be PM'ing these people to re-assess the volunteer pool. You may find that many of them won't respond.

Second, JTV should be a part of JSoTW. JEM is already on the list of trackers. I understand that the reason for JEM being on it is that Ruroshin took over his tracker. But again, that was over one year ago. JTV has since then been moving many of its torrents over to D-Addicts' tracker. Just take a look at Kamui6's uploads to D-Addicts:

http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/torrents ... =upload+by

The JSoTW committee should update not only update the renzoku list, but also update the trackers it covers. Check with Kamui6 and see if her fansub group is interested in participating.

Since I started doing the JSoTW I have not seen any series go unseeded after winning. I know nothing about JSoTWs prior to that. The list of volunteer seeders is indeed outdated in the sense of removing inactive members. However, from what I've seen, there are still enough members that will seed listed episodes.

PMing the volunteers for each series would be a difficult task. The easiest way to keep the list updated would be through a php script (checking for last login). Considering my opinion that there has not been a series that has gone unseeded after winning, I do not believe it is a priority.

While it would be great for JTV to be a part of the JSoTW, I do not feel that I should be recruiting them. Instead, they should be allowed to volunteer as volunteer seeders.

But is Kamui6 aware that she's even allowed to be on JSoTW? Because as long as I've been on D-Addict, I didn't know until you just mentioned it. That's my point.

Ah, cool! I did not know that. I was under the impression that JTV once told us not to because it would increase the load on their tracker which they wouldn't be able to handle. But then again my information is several years old.
