I would really appreciate that they lift all regional restrictions for volunteers.
It’s a minimum token of appreciation for our hard work.
Yes, they give us a Vikipass (plus if they are in America) which is necessary if we can’t watch something we also can’t access the subbing tools and work on it.
But there are more and more shows we cannot watch because of geo-blocking. What happens then is that those don’t have enough team members and the subtitles are excruciatingly slow. The viewers get angry and some cancel or not renew their subscriptions. So, to skimp on something for the volunteers, Viki actually loses money and creates discontent.
I made a post on “Viki ideas” about that. If you think it’s a reasonable request, please come and upvote it by clicking the little upward-looking arrow at the right of the post.
