What is the most ridiculous subbing complaint you ever received?
I’ve been a volunteer at viki for 11 years so I have seen literally thousands of complaints in many languages complaining about the absence of subtitles or the speed in which the subitltles are produced. On some days, if I check the on-screen comments for just one episode I have seen as many as 400 complaints in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Arabic and Hindi. (The last two languages I check through an online translator). The whiners never receive any cheese from me, just a big red X.
Have you ever received a complaint which made you want to be transported through cyberspace to physically assault the whiner?
I am Chief Editor on True Beauty which is usually subbed in English within 4 - 5 hours of upload. Not the fastest subbing I’ve experienced but definitely top twenty. Despite this speed, a viewer had the audacity to pm me to complain as follows:"I woke up extra early to watch episode 4 this morning and there are no subtitles. "
Segmenting began at 6:28:32 PST and the whiner wrote to me at 7:12 am PST, 44 minutes later, although segmenting was still in progress. My response started with “Are you insane?”
Are you more tolerant than me or have you also received complaints which provoke your inner assertiveness?
