Post by chrysanthemum » Mar 12th, '09, 05:42

Is there any place on d-addicts for requesting a series be subbed? :scratch:

No, because D-Addicts does not allow people to request subtitles.

PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST SUBS!

But... I thought there might be a difference between requesting fansubbers to hurry and suggesting a series... especially since it's an old series. But no?

Only if you're going to help make the subs and you want to find team members.

Chances are the subbers will sub the show because they're interested in it; not because you want them to.

But if you're looking for members to sub a show feel free to post that.

Saragorn and Kakijun are correct... Fansubs exist because these fansubbers like the shows they subtitle, and not because there's a demand for the show to be subbed. If a show lacks subs - especially a recent show, there's a logical reason for it: no one's interested!!!!!

There is no place here to request subs for the reasons already given.
You may find a thread like this one http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_68990.htm which allows you to express your desires but otherwise you'll find requesting subs does not go down well.
If you have enjoyed series you found here then please help the community by offering to seed in Series Of The Month

Yes, I think it's worthwhile to point out that while viewers may want to try a show, they have no obligation to finish watching a show through even once. Many people download shows with the mentality, "Oh, I'll try it and see if it's any good" rather than "I must finish it" because frankly, it's entertainment and not something that should stress you out even more.

However, for fansubbers, that is not true. When we pick up a series, we're making a commitment. For us, we have to watch every episode, over and over again to correct for mistakes and check for consistency. This is why we don't sub shows that only look interesting. We sub shows that we KNOW we enjoy.

This is also why if you want to see a show subbed, you can go and try to recruit people to sub it. By doing that, you are offering the same commitment as anybody else who would be willing to work on the project. It means you REALLY want to see the show with subs. Otherwise, anybody with a passing interest in a show would request subs... which would mean all shows would be requested, which would make such an exercise pointless.
