I don’t care that much on which animal will be on the badge. What I care for is: How can we, segmenters and Portuguese subtitlers, make enough contributions since we are being left out from the projects? Seggers can’t segment anything, they are not even allowed to adjust and combine segments now, a lot of time only adjusting bad segs to end up with 0 contributions. What to say from our poor Portuguese subbers now that everything comes pre-subbed? We always were considered to be one of the communities with the most subbers, but now we are being excluded from the community without a word.
Voting animals for the new Subathon’s badge it’s not an urgent matter, at least for those of us who will be unable to contribute. I’m sorry to sound rude, but as a Portuguese subber/editor, I don’t even know if I’ll be able to play along since there’s nothing left for me. All the new dramas are coming pre-subbed, we already talked about this matter before on posts, on helps, on tickets etc…
So I see no point for me voting on something that I won’t be able to play as well🤷♀️.
I’m worried about what is ahead of us (I mean… Portuguese subber as I can speak for my community - Poor newbies, they didn’t even get a chance to start at here).
And here’s the question… “no statement yet?”
It’s boring to talk to the walls, you know?
Sorry for this, but it’s your turn now.
At least talk to us privately, you know?
That’s right Sheli.
When I joined Viki there was still a bit of concern about quality, although there was an attempt to implement Vikiboot, we resisted. We could still organize our teams and really feel like a community. It was fun MAKING THE MAGIC THAT VIKI SAID SO MUCH ABOUT. We were careful not to use terms that weren’t appropriate for a period drama, to use slang at the right time and place, etc… Now we can’t anymore. The segmenters could still combine the scenes (I don’t understand why Viki prohibited it, since the loss of pre-subs is minimal). Will this be the end of the Portuguese-speaking community (mainly BR and PT) and the segmenters? Are Portuguese-speaking volunteer subbers and our fellow segmenters really so disposable?
Do subscribers complain? Yes. But that’s not the end of the world. Viki can’t take it?
Since there are not many projects available, unfortunately the majority of the members of our community (especially segmenters, English-Portuguese and English-Spanish subbers) will not have the opportunity to try to get this badge.
Its a shame what’s happens with the portuguese community, we are the biggest group of volunteers and viki is losting your purpose tha is made by volunteers, you don’t forget that in the past if the community was not present, Viki would not to be what is today. These automatics subtitles is killing the volunteers that do it for years and the new volunteer that one day dreamed about to help the community here.
