Exactly what I am trying to say volunteers should address the need of more volunteers available here at the site. The one's that are not too proficient in Korean/Chinese Japanese/English etc... (sometimes I noticed in the subtitles) can be helped too if we had more volunteers to help with the editing.
We have many people that do their volunteer work and put a lot of effort in their work and it shows others do whatever they feel like doing and won't allow any room for anyone else to do what they can't or want to do. In your case your time was limited and you did what your could but it wasn't enough so viki site should have been aware of that too. Instead of struggling with the little you had request viki site for someone to help out.
The availability of TIME> DAYS> LANGUAGE known should be clear. The weakness (not too proficient in English) would be addressed and be monitor by more than one editing personnel. Is frustrating that so many keep taking projects that won't benefit anyone. The dramas will take long amount of times to be finished that will give in viewers begging for subs they might not see for months and even years. The volunteer will work more on the ones that need to be done sooner and the vicious cycle begins again. When they hold to the dramas they are saying'' I can do it'' when they really can't and that type of mentality here doesn't make sense to me.
The only reason why the wrong word usage angers me is just bc of that: you tell them they are using the incorrect word and all you get is a lectures/insults adding ''that is the correct word!'' like if there are no more ways to find other words in the vocabulary (synonyms/thesaurus) and they allege that is the only one that can be used in that sentence and we see it all over the dramas Chinese or Korean too.
To all those who say Mrs.ajuhma2 answered classy to me she did it with respect because she realized what I said makes sense. She tries to explain to me what I already know and I thank her for that. My point was that when we volunteer we need to treated with the respect it deserves no one here is forcing us to do all the overwork we chose to do it but I ask myself why? Why you feel only you can do it and no one else can? Why not ask viki personnel for ways to resolve this problem?
We are not getting paid: That was our own choice, so why feel overwhelmed with the viewers complaints? They are not getting the subtitles bc someone that could have said I can't do it'' chose to hold on to it like if no one else could take over it and DO it.
My main theme here is not appreciating the hard work of all volunteers and I would be insane to say you guys don't work hard and give your best but there is so much that so little can do for the amount of work this site requires. To resolve the problems instead of complaining how unappreciated we are by viewers recognize that you can't do it and someone should/must help More volunteers need to be recruited added to teams stop that cycle ''I only work with my favorites''
My main point here is EVERY volunteer (I speak from experience I volunteered in Hospitals and after school programs) has to treat the volunteer work with the same respect as a paid job. We must let them know how much we can really do and WANT to do and what we DON'T want to do. How many days/hours we have to do this volunteer work here. How much we really know of the language we will translate to so that we can pay special attention to those that need more editors supervising their work. The ones that are proficient should be in charge to determine whether the drama will require more help available. They should not ENDURE the overwork load bc in the long run someone will lose something along the way (subtitles in the drama for example).
Volunteer work is not a HOBBY that you do whenever you can if you can and a take it or leave it attitude. Our work does not need to be perfect but if it has room for improvement let's find a way to do it. We are not obligated to take dramas we can't, we can tell the personnel I can't do it and those waiting around for projects to do, can be useful to begin that project. Ironically those pushed away here are the best translators and I might add is the reason why I say everyone should work on all projects needed not on their favorite dramas (some volunteers only want to work on air dramas) or the genre they like.
The reason why I see the same people on the same team bc they refuse to accept anyone else in their team and that is very very clear here (there are certain moderators the minute they take a drama they close their channel so no one else can request to be added) and please, don't say that doesn't happen here.
In regards to how many ppl here have different page profile and at times could be in several dramas with their different names I don't have the evidence so I can't say who they are. But I know it happens here and I can give you their names but my respect for I don't accuse if I can't provide the evidence holds me back. On the other hand, I feel viki is aware of that but it does work to their advantage bc some of them are very productive and good in what they do.
To all those upset I add, I am not undermining your worth here for you all are valuable to this site but I also see a certain behavior of greed that has no place here bc is affecting volunteers as much as viewers.There is no need for teams to be competing with each other we should be ""TEAM PLAYERS'' and that will bring changes that in the long run will benefit everyone. Quality and quantity goes hand in hand and they need a balance that we don't have here at this site because we need to work on that so viki site needs to hear FROM ALL OF US VOLUNTEERS.
