Could you please unban me.  Sorry again for my mistakes.


Ok, it's been a week, so you can have another chance. But don't expect a 3rd if you continue to break the rules.


Current & Future L-E Projects / New series suggestion thread
« on: March 25, 2007, 08:55:31 pm »
Ok, I just condensed all of the new series requests into one thread. So in the future, if you want to request we sub a series, post it here.

Some things to keep in mind:

1) We DO NOT sub licensed anime. So if its licensed in the US, don't ask.

2) We need both a raw source and a translator in order to sub a series. So if you can't provide both, it's unlikely that we will sub it.

3) By raw source we mean a DVD source, not crappy rips available on the internet.

OK, if you can meet all of these requirements, great, we'll consider your request. If not, you can still ask I suppose, but nothing will happen.

Just to make it clear once again for those who post even though they fail to meet the requirements...  >:(

Unfortunately for you...

1) I'm in a rather irritable mood right now.

2) You completely ignored the new series suggestion thread where this should have been posted.

3) And in addition you double posted, which IS rather rude. If its all about the same topic, please keep it to 1 thread.

After weighing carefully these 3 things...
This thread is locked!  >:(

If anyone has anything further to say about it, post in the new series suggestion thread where this stuff is supposed to go, and while you are at it please read the guidelines for suggesting a series. In the future please adhere to the rules more closely.

Except that Terry Goodkind has promised an ending. I think Phantom is the first book in the final trilogy of the Sword of Truth books. Of course I'm not entirely sure since I've only read the first five or so.

Excellent! So you should quit now while you are ahead and still like the series.  ;)

over the last few months i read all the Sword of Truth series
the first 5 books were ok but after that i started hating them
but when i start reading something i have to finish
theres gonna be one more book then thats it thank goodness

* Debt of Bones (2001) prequel
* Wizard's First Rule (1994)
* Stone of Tears (1995)
* Blood of the Fold (1996)
* Temple of the Winds (1997)
* Soul of the Fire (1999)
* Faith of the Fallen (2000)
* The Pillars of Creation (2001)
* Naked Empire (2003)
* Chainfire (2005)
* Phantom (2006)

Interesting that you should say that... Actually, I feel rather similar about them. The later books just aren't nearly as interesting. They focus way to much on philosophical perspectives of the author and far too little on actual plot movement.

I have forgotten what in particular Soul of Fire was about, but the last book I can even remember liking was the one about the plague, which I'm thinking was probably Temple of Winds.

So yeah... The first few I enjoyed immensely, the later ones have made me sad that the series keeps continuing. Kind of like the Wheel of Time series... it just never ends!  :P

"Captain Herlock" ??? >.< That just makes me want to cry... It sounds so icky :'( And yes, the author's complete lack of grasp for the characters and the story really comes through in that Star Trek reference. Eewww!

* bobby6 reminds everyone that this is the "New Series Suggestion Thread"... Which would imply that the thing to do here is suggest a new series, while following the suggestion rules.

So... if you wish to start a thread about some other tangent, please feel free, but could we try and keep this to actual series suggestions? Thanks. ;D

Current & Future L-E Projects / Re: Ask Dr. Rin Status

I only wish I could comment on why the project is going so slowly, but I can't give specifics and not piss off people I or Live-eviL are working with possibly. So the best thing I can say probably is politics. If anyone really would like to know specifically, you can always PM me to ask. :D

As much as I love L-E... especially the the Ladies of L-E and bastard, mamo, yaoi, innex, dead, plastic, willow (forget it, I'll end up listing everyone), I really would hate to see it dropped or be stalled all because of a missing TL whom from the start everyone was aware may jeopardize the project's life.

To me, such an attitude shows indecisiveness and a lack of resolve and commitment.  In my opinion, unless Tofu can say he will stay on for the entirety of the project or at least be 90% sure he can... I vote don't bother.

This is just my opinion.  I personally don't take on work, projects, task, etc. unless I know or at least am mostly sure that I complete them.  It's just irresponsible in my eyes to do otherwise.

Also, taking on the project probably requires a lot of discussion amongst the staff to evaluate whether it is viable resources-wise.  If taking on the project jeopardizes the productivity of your other projects or stretches the group's resources thin, then I would vote nay.  According to your post, it suggests that this may be the case.... but I'm not well-versed in the internal affairs of L-E so I can't be completely positive.

Well, as far as resources stretched too thin, thats not completely accurate. Its more like old staff retires, new staff joins, and they start new projects which they are interested in.  As a result we get more projects, and some of our older ones don't move anymore due to the fact that the people who were initially interested in them or had the resources to work on them are gone. Its not that they couldn't be continued. Its just that there need to be the right resource available to continue them, and enough interested people to fill all the vital positions. and often the new staff would much rather work on something they themselves our interested than being left with the unfinished work of their predecessors.

As far as not starting if you can't finish, well, if its in regards to tofu, saying it to the rest of us is rather pointless. Only the individual themselves controls if they start something that they won't finish.

And as far as the stalling of many project being due to lack of motivation on the part of the current staff, that also is not necessarily true. For some of our projects, there was never a huge fanbase to begin with, so to find someone willing to fill a position for a project, or provide needed resource for that project, can be very difficult no matter how hard you try depending on project popularity.

Take gallery fake for instance, the reason it is not going is because there is a lack of a translartor "l33t" enough to work on it. And its not as though we have not requested that someone volunteer. Its just that nobody has. And we have no control over the issue until someone does.

Though at the same time, I agree that in some aspects a more proactive attitude would fix some of the issues with some of the projects. If there isn't someone who says "OK project X is installed... Why? "and then takes action to address those issues, then the project stays stalled. And as much as I also love this group, that is one of its weaknesses; a lot of passiveness and waiting for someone else to step up and do something.

Perhaps; it is a fact that you have no true obligation to the fans who download your releases, but on the other hand, it is for these fans that you do what you do. If you have no true intention to sub the shows Tofu has left you with, then make their status clear towards the fans who patiently wait for them. That is atleast a kind of moral obligation you should acknowledge, right? Just drop those projects, so other groups can finish them. You could even help such a group by providing any materials you may have acquired, such as scripts or raws.

I'm fine with the route you're taking, but take the accompanying responsability by not keeping your fans in the dark. If you're just keeping their status as stalled in the wait for Tofu, I suggest you drop them anyway, after which you can always re-pick them if he should return.

I also wanted to comment on the Trapp Family Story, however. This is a title the current members of Live-eviL picked up, but also has not been seeing much action. Can you not agree with me that it would be better to first get your act straight on a show like that, instead of beginning another new title?

I would say, in some cases, a lack of resources IS an issue. First of all because sometimes, for shows that were started by retired or "MIA" staff members, some of the vital resources to continue subbing the show at a decent pace, or even any pace at all, dissapeared with the staff.

For instance, in the case of Ask Dr. Rin, the owner of the raws quit fansubbing, leaving us with no raws. And the fact that the show wasn't continuing was not for any lack of enthusiasm on our part, but because if you don't have the raws, quite frankly you can't sub the series. It was only through the generosity of one of our fans that we were able to obtain new raws and get the project started again.

In some cases, the original staff that starts a show, retires, and the newer members are not really interested in the show and never were. Is it fair to ask people who never cared one bit about a series, and who fansub on a VOLUNTEER basis to work on something which they find incredibly boring or distasteful just so they can satisfy you? If we were getting paid, its one thing, but when its for fun, why should anyone be forced to work on something they dislike?

In many cases though, its a mixture. Some of the staff on the original show retire, or some of the resources dry up, and because we realize that there are fans for these series, and because we DO care, we say they are stalled in the hope that we will find the staff or resources we need to continue subbing. And where might these resources come from you ask? Well, usually from fans of the series who care enough about seeing it get done to actually volunteer their own time or resources to help. Thats why I joined Live-eviL in fact. So instead of complaining that your favorite show isn't being subbed or not releasing very fast, instead ask yourself how YOU can help US out so we can do it better. If you have no interest in helping in any way, or taking the time to learn how then DO NOT complain here. We're not interested.

If on the other hand, you really do care about helping, and not just useless griping, please DO contact the project manager of your favorite series.

In conclusion, help is appreciated, but useless whining is not.
