Okay, so I'm not posting here because I expect nobody to be like this, think that the subbers deserve more respect etc…
But is it just me, or do most commentors on the "unstable" groups (Instantz and AnimeSoftSubs) just seem to be bashing the groups? They think they're entitled to a release 3 hours after the show airs and start bitching if there is a problem or if one of the groups takes some time to release while the other has it finished. (I.e. one group has it out on Sunday/Monday and the other has some problems or something and releases maybe Thursday) - Because they're used to quick releases?
One Piece is the only series that I really see this on - Naruto and Bleach are always covered anyway and DB doesn't have a messageboard for people to flame on... (Though I bet their email fills up a lot) -- The shorter series usually have more groups doing them because, well, they're short. It's not as much a commitment to do as a series like One Piece, with the manga still going strong and no set finishing date, and those usually have the more patient users. Also, they're more convenient as to new anime watchers who most of the time do not know at all of the process or work that goes into creating the subtitles for each episode and think it's just like 20 minutes of copy/pasting or something about as stupid - Instead, on the short series they're usually completed, or pretty much, and thus you're pretty good on not getting comments from impatient assholes.
I've been on for the whole day now, while at school, deleting flaming comments and other bashing comments. We've gotten so many "wuuuuuh, give me my one piece ;___;" comments or something like "how the hell can you need a day for one encoding!!!" (Even though it's only like 6 hours, but it's easier to just say a day...) and something like "plz do softsubs" (Which my group isn't going to do, and we've stated that countless times already)
For every 10 bashers, there's maybe one that respects us. (This is taking only the commentors)
I haven't seen as much of this at Vegapunk, which may be because of their register-only commenting system… (I've had the same person post 6 comments under different names all bashing and flaming)
I know it is like this at AnimeSoftSubs (I check their site's comments after we release to see whether they've been bashed lots or whatever...) and I'm sure it's been like this at more groups that have done One Piece (and other long-running series) but I want to see comments from "sane" people - Is it really like this, or is it just that the whiners like commenting more (probably) and the patient ones are like "I'll just wait until release post and then I'll say thanks :D!" -- Do we really have to live in a society (of anime fans) that's made up of such ungratefulness?
(Again: I'm not posting this because of me expecting nobody to be like this [there will always be idiots…] or out of spite or annoyance - I just am…)
[This is for discussions too - There's not much about discussions here, so let's have some, eh?]
