How many times have I addressed this (unappreciated situation) in my writings here in Discussion? One thing is not having the time to take care of all our concerns and issues as a volunteers here. Another thing is, to totally disregard the good heart of the many volunteers have for this site to do so much w/o pay or any added Profit since most volunteers don't even have the time to watch other dramas bc they devote so much of their little FREE time to seg,sub edit etc,,,(dramas, movies, shows etc..). They don't even have time to spare and leisure watching dramas at this site (unless they are working on them).
I believe that once the site changed company the need for volunteers has become obsolete. What I mean is, they will have their own people to do their work w/o hassles. They realized they don't really need all that viki site offers (many different languages in drama) to make a profit since basic English and MAYBE Spanish are the majority of paying viewers. Besides, the region/legal/government rules issue makes it impossible to have many paying viewers from many other countries.
An apologetic note would not have cost them anything and looking for ways to save all this hard work from volunteers would have been the most humane and decent thing to do as a form of appreciation.
One thing I learned in life those who profit in any kind business is those who are respectful, caring and generous towards others. Not the cheating, greedy and uncaring who thinks only about themselves to gain profits without remorse bc if they had any before deleting the FAN channels they would have found alternatives w/o affecting and hurting the volunteers that FOR YEARS has stayed faithfully here.
