Considering the number of new series suggestions we have these days, a new discussion board should be opened for all new series suggestions.

Which is why I said I would provide the video from the R2 DVD.

Which is why I didn't mention raws as one of our requirements.  ;)

README BEFORE SUGGESTING A NEW SERIES FOR US TO SUB
« Reply #47 on: September 09, 2006, 10:54:10 pm »
If you want Live-eviL to sub something new there are 2 conditions to us picking something up. With Tofusensei being inactive we have a serious lack of free translators who arent already tied up doing our current work so heres what you need to provide us to get us to sub a series ..

1) A raw source - We're not gonna go mooching around the net for decent raws if you want us to sub it you need to give us decent raws preferably DVD vobbies or high quality TV caps.

now heres the biggie....


2) A TRANSLATOR
(Note the translator must be competent and be able to provide scripts which don't require heavy translation checks.

If you can provide both raws and a translator you stand a good chance of us subbing the series, without them unless one of the staff REALLY likes it sadly your suggestion will be ignored. :)

I guess for once the same thing hit both of us the same time.  Hopefully people will read it. Also suggesting series without translators is dangerous cause Tofu might get interested and volunteer to t/l it which = end of series before it happens, unless something new, in which case end of series in the sense 'Dropped?' even after L-E officially declares it dropped.

Can someone please sub Masakari? Raws are already available here, and I will QC, but I cannot translate them.

Geez, how I long to invite him to the trolls' playground.  BTW, we shouldn't be recruiting t/ls under less they require a minimal level of translation check at the most. Say, best with at least 95% accuracy.  Normally people who have this level of accuracy fall in either/all five of the following categories:

-they've lived in Japan for years and have the language incorporated in their system. (e.g. me)

-They've been watching animes, subs/raws, ever since they were kids and they even spend an year or two at least in Japan and has studied the language to some extent. (e.g. Tofu, Masakari)

-Whether they lived in Japan or now, they're in the final year of University Japanese language course or have completed it. Self-study is okay too. (e.g. Mirror_ID)

-And of-course, whether the above apply or not, they've been translating for sometime, hence experienced. (e.g. Tofu, Strato, tellu)

-finally, not to forget that they maybe Japanese/Japanese descendant yourself and can speak English = perfect (e.g. EclipseZeta, Greenkabbage)

For someone to be a potential t/l for us, or any fansubbing group in general, s/he MUST fall in either of the categories otherwise need not apply UNLESS they can bring in helpers and t/l checkers along with them too.

Nope... I really read it... I'm sorry if you all misunderstood me... What I meant is that I would like Live-eviL to sub it... but of course maybe you have to watch it first in order to sub it right?   8)

Well you can ignore the request though just suggesting although I can't provide the two conditions... I just knew that there's a raw, and there's one subs subbing it but it's not as good as yours... that's why I'm suggesting it... but again sorry for bothering you all  ^_^

Not necessarily, we can sub it WHILE watching it, too.

I have a series to suggest and I know where good quality video can be uptained but unfortunatly I don't know any translators. The name of the show is Ghost Hunt and so far only one group has done it. I don't know how good they are at the translation because I dont hear the dialog I have to read it. You guys do such a great job on Death Note that I just thought someone may be interested in it. If not its ok. :D

I was actually the editor for the first ep of Ghost Hunt that was released, and I can tell you now that we tried to do as good a job as we could.

I don't think Ghost Hunt would be a good addition to L-E's lineup, especially if you can't find a translator.

My mind is like a sieve. It retains all sorts of interesting bits and lets the important stuff flow straight through.
