Poll: JSS/MB and WRD

(Poll is closed)

Just thought I’d drop by and post something to let everyone know I’m still here. I know I still have a lot of lyrics to post up, and one day I’ll get around to them all, including some of the song requests I’ve received. (I don’t know about other people, but I find translating songs so much more difficult than translating a lakorn — or perhaps I just overthink things too much).

Anyway, in case most of you haven’t noticed, I’ve been working on Jao Sao Salatan/Monsoon Bride over at Viki. Well mostly I’ve just been helping out because other subbers have been doing the subbing and so far, I’ve just been filling in incomplete segments here and there to make the clips 100%. They’ve completed up to episode 11, so I was going to pick up 12, but of course DailyMotion has to start lagging for me, which makes it very hard to translate or segment. I don’t understand all the politics, but I really wish Viki would just allow fans to upload videos directly to their site. Perhaps that would eliminate some of the problems, such as video lag and the deletion of videos. However, I’ll check in every day just in case the lagging is gone so I can help out some more.

This means it’ll be a long while before I upload soft subs for JSS/MB and WRD (Wiang Roi Dao), which brings me to the poll I’ve put up. (Honestly, I’m only expecting a couple of votes since I’m so inconsistent with my blog postings that if anyone knows about the poll, it’d be by pure coincidence.) I promised I would release the soft subs regardless, but it’s going to take me a long time to get around to them. For JSS/MB, it’s because I prefer to focus on completing it at Viki, and for WRD, it’s because it has already been completed at Viki (I know, that makes no sense and I’m being inconsistent, but that’s just how it is). Personally, I’m leaning toward dropping WRD (oh, the pain it gives me for not finishing something I’ve started!) because it’s already available on Viki if anyone’s interested. JSS/MB seems to be heading toward the same fate once it’s completed on Viki just because it’s more time-consuming than I thought it would be to make soft subs out of completed subs. (That’s the lazy in me speaking.) So I figured I’d let the one or two of you decide what I should do.

However, I don’t have a problem uploading the raws if anyone’s interested in them, so regardless of the soft sub outcome, I can still upload the videos for interested parties.
