I was just about to say that one of the aims was probably for volunteers so set in their K-dramas to venture into an uncharted territory It’s not the first time a subathon focuses on a certain type of drama. This is hardly extraordinary.
However, Romanian and Arabic are extremely popular on Viki, and yet, no mention of them in the subathon. Why?
What’s worse is, they try to explain why they focus on only those five languages (cultural months and all of that), but they skip why they included French! Like, “they won’t notice if our explanation sentence is very long”. Pffff…
It might, but it hasn’t for me. If one’s working habits are good, it’s hard to do a crappy job.
Also, subathons generally, for the same reason as you mentioned, bring out the dot and GT dumbasses who think they can get away with cheating.
I know exactly what you mean. But I’ve seen cases where the upload to Viki is slower than broadcasting, and Viki then usually looses its audience. They go watch it on YouTube or some other mysterious Facebook channel/page.
