Sadly, it has come to this bc the site realized that not everyone in here is giving good quality work to the site. Although, I feel this site is no longer the site it was many years back when I joined. Pleasant to do good volunteer work for, and that is the reason why I stopped working ‘‘on air’’ shows a long time ago. They know how hard it is to do segmenting, subtitles and give good quality work to this site, but it seems they no longer care for the one’s who give their 110% here.
I believe that for a while now a lot of people here took ‘‘control’’ of everything like they owned the site. They control who could be in their team and they used several profile pages to sub and seg in many of the dramas. Why? I really have no idea, but maybe ‘‘they do get paid?’’ It would make sense since working so much and not getting paid makes no sense to me at all.
My other theory is that they finally realized that some here give excellent quality work, but we have a large number that are giving very poor quality segments and subtitles. My main complain is the Spanish subtitles. We have these large groups of subbers in Spanish giving subtitles with a translator that are terrible and useless most of the time.
It makes no sense to me their eagerness to say they can sub bc they know English/Spanish language, when in reality they are mainly using goggle translate for all their translation. The senseless and useless subs they give sometimes must be what Rakuten/VIKI site is trying to correct. That includes all languages. I had many ppl. requesting to do other language subtitles in my drama, and when I check their page and past subs they’ve done, they are missing words and is obviously done with a translator.
Whatever the issues are, we can’t expect them to let us know what’s going on since we are only ‘‘volunteers’’ who chose to do this work fro FREE on our own free will. Although you guys provide here wonderful volunteer work, not everyone here is doing that, and it has to be stopped. I think that the changes implemented here are solely the right of its corporate owners, but I still think an explanation of what’s going on will show the respect all VOLUNTEERS here deserve.
I think changes are good, but respect is something everyone deserves in life, and all of you, whom the channel were locked, deserve the respect to be informed why they did this, and if all your hard work will go to waste: YOU ALL DESERVE AN APOLOGY from the site’s owners, or whoever is implementing this new changes.
Like I said, changes ARE needed here since is getting out of hand how many people (in different languages not only spanish) are giving the site poor quality work, that in the long run will affect more ppl to join as paying subscribers. It’s not my intention to offend anyone here. I am just stating MY OPINION which I can back up with evidence since I have saved what to me is a total disrespect from some in here. They know what they are doing is wrong, and ironically these are the people that work the most in many dramas on air here ar Rviki site (I’m talking about Spanish subbers here).
I hope this site doesn’t make the mistake of losing the ppl. who are a blessing to this site providing the best quality segs and subs in many different languages.
