Subs, bleh, KinKi, more bleh

MAN, THE HOLIDAY SEASON HAS BEEN INTENSE. It's 2016, though, so isn't that exciting? I have a whole bunch of messages in my inbox and a lot of comments to reply to (INCLUDING PEOPLE WHO I HAVE TO GET TO WHO ADDED ME TO SEE MY SUBS--I'M SORRY I'M TAKING SO LONG!), so I'll try to get through those tonight after I finish all the work I have to do. BUT STILL. 2016! This year looks like it'll be super busy for TOKIO (who have a new single coming out in February, another thingy they're endorsing, an album coming out later in the year [probably mid-year?] and a TOUR), so in other words I won't have money any more. :'D

Also this post got unnecessarily long so I'm gonna put the rest under a cut. It doesn't even have any pretty pictures and I'm so sorry. :(

Now that all the horrifyingly tiring family outings and stuff are over, I'm ready to go back to translating longer stuff! Maybe! For things that I'm actually doing, I started an Itadaki SUPER High Jump episode, the TOKIO x Arashi Korokoro Sugoroku, and I'm downloading Tomo's Kanjani Chronicle as we speak. I also have a segment from the 3 hr Gakkou e Ikou! SP that showed in November... I'm so sorry to the timers and the other translators for taking so long! ;_; Furthermore I have some plans for a double celebration for Gussan and Mabo's birthday, but whether I can release two videos or just one really awesome one is something else entirely. I fucking hate Mabo.

School's rolling around again so I'm gonna do my best to finish a whole bunch of projects before I have to go back to studying. Tomo's Shin Domoto Kyoudai is showing tonight and I'm definitely doing that as well, but we'll see how quickly I can finish it. Fragile Team's VS Arashi is also part of my list of projects, so I'm sure all you people who added me for the TOKIO x Arashi crap is gonna enjoy that in particular. I've also got my eye on an Uwa! Damasareta Taisho episode with Mabo and Tomo's upcoming appearance on Honma Dekka... so we'll see how much I can accomplish. :|

If anyone's willing to do some timing or typesetting for me, I'd really appreciate it! \o/ [livejournal.com profile] gurajiorasu will be doing the Jump, Korokoro, and VS Arashi stuff, though, so I just need timers for the birthday project/s, KanChroni, Honma Dekka, SDK, and maybe DamaTai. And also maybe two TOKIO Kakeru episodes that I have to finish if [livejournal.com profile] gurajiorasu is still swamped with all my other stupid translating projects then. XD P.S. [livejournal.com profile] soritt, are you still willing to do DASH episodes?

Speaking of Shin Domoto Kyoudai, though, and of the Domotos in particular, I'm starting to get back into them after... forever. I have no idea where to download their music (I'm looking to get their entire discography because I'm an .mp3 hoarder like that) so it'd be nice if anyone could point me in the right direction for it. I know [livejournal.com profile] domotokyoudai exists, but I really hope there's some organised list of their discography somewhere out there 'cause I'm way too lazy to sift through 2394729834 entries... with some dead links thrown in... u_u I only have Misty in my computer right now, but I've already listened to that 102 times as of writing this entry and a man can only hear the same song for so long.

ALSO. If anyone knows where I can find that SDK episode with Tomo in it from however long ago and also where to find the recent Arashi ni Shiyagare episode with Tsuyoshi (I know NNK subs did it; I'm a member of their community on my old account, but it looks like all the links on that post are dead D:) I'd love you forever. My non-Japanese speaking girlfriend is getting into KinKi with me apparently (she was Tsuyobaited!! I'M A GOOD INFLUENCE) and I'd like to show her a whole bunch of stuff so we can flail together.

[personal profile] winkychan 2016-01-03 12:24 pm (UTC)(link)
You will find all of their discography on Jpopsuki: Koichi Domoto and Tsuyoshi Domoto.
I don't have the subbed tfile for the AniShi but I can get the raw if you want (it will take like a day thought, Clubbox is really slow).

Anyway, thanks for doing the sugoroku really looking forward to it!

BTW, did you just watchthe VS Arashi SP/Baba Arashi?. Nagase was scary XD

[identity profile] kurokouchi.livejournal.com 2016-01-03 02:33 pm (UTC)(link)
KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *girly screaming* THANK YOU!!! I've gotten so into KinKi today for some reason. T___T Like I was watching some videos and crying about Tsuyoshi and Koichi's relationship and just... everything hurts...

You need an account for Jpopsuki, right?

And I'm afraid I need subs for this. D: I can watch it alone if it's raw, but I kind of want to cuddle my girlfriend and have her scream and laugh on me while we watch because she's so cute when she does that and she does it like ALL THE TIME wanted to watch this with someone else at the same time and she doesn't speak Japanese. *coughs*

I didn't watch Baba Arashi yet, omg. I've spent all night doing Sugoroku! Does Tomo have a big part in it? BECAUSE IF HE DOES THEN I... I MIGHT... HAVE TO ADD THAT TOO...

[personal profile] winkychan 2016-01-03 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I think you need an account for Jpopsuki? Were you able to create one? If not, I can send you the torrents privately, I have so much ratio I don't care sharing XD

Huummm I hope they will reupload it, I posted in the comments just in case but someone already asked two weeks ago and nobody replied. Too bad, it seems like the files were available until very recently *sobs*

Well, as for Baba Arashi, I don't want to spoil you so just watch this then this ^^

PS: Also if you could be more specific about that SDK episode (complete name, date?), I could get the raw from clubbox.

[identity profile] kurokouchi.livejournal.com 2016-01-04 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I talked to someone about the whole ratio thing a while ago, and I don't think Jpopsuki would be good for me. D: My Internet is super slow (50-100 kbps only) so I'd be a shit uploader. T_____T It's so sad.

I actually got a re-upload for the AniShi, which is awesome. The good points of having Arashi-biased friends, haha! I think I'll be checking out the Baba Arashi maybe this weekend or so, though. I'll be spending most of this week translating because... well... it's a long list. XD

I also found the SDK by the grace of fate somewhere in my Tumblr inbox! It was ridiculous and I had to go like 50 pages back through it, but I found it! :D Thank you for the offer, though! why are you so kind to me

[personal profile] winkychan 2016-01-04 04:48 pm (UTC)(link)
I saw below someone posting a more efficient way to their discography so I hope you got it ^^

You sure are brave, timing and typesetting takes so much time, let along translating above all else. It was such a long time since I used aegisub but I remember it took me like 4 hours to time and typeset a 25minutes episode, so your list makes me dizzy XD Ganbatte~

Don't hesitate if you need an old file of something I can find on clubbox, I can upload it on mega, the "hardest" part is to wait for the download and upload ^^;; I find LJ so quiet since I came back in the fandom, it's nice to have someone to talk who is active, even if it's not the same fandom XD (seems like everyone has moved to tumblr but I'm not accustomed to it yet, I'm just reblogging everything like a mad lady XD)

You can download Kinki album HERE. For Tsuyoshi Solo you can find it HERE and HERE for Tsuyoshi and Koichi Solo (there's some dead link but most are still available).

Can't wait SDK SP tonight ^o^

They don't have the K and L album on there, though. D: I found a download for the K album, actually, so I'm fine with that, but the only thing I found for L was dead /cries

Ahhh... Tomo looks so hot!!
I miss high tension Kinki in SDK, and especially Domoto Bother Band <333
Btw i found link for L album HERE choose the link from Zippyshare.

GUH, THANK YOU. I stole it. Right now I have the C, D, K, L, and M albums. XD I wish my Internet speed wasn't so slow! but oh my god kinki sounds so gooooood *___*

HE WAS REALLY GREAT, RIGHT??? THE EPISODE WAS GREAT AND I WAS JUST WEEPING THE WHOLE TIME... Isn't Tomo gonna be on Bunbubuun too? I already want to sub it. :|

I spent nearly all day watching KinKi things instead of translating (*cries*) and I'm so in love with them again...

[identity profile] dytaddicted.livejournal.com 2016-01-04 03:55 pm (UTC)(link)
It seems Tomo's episode will be broadcast on Jan 17, and i just found a reaaaallly cute Kinki pics from twitter for Tomo and Oguri Shun eps.
Their cuteness really killing me!! (>.<)

I love L album so much! The concert even more romantic. For M Album, I really addicted to Speak low and their concert performance just perfect!!
Download I and J album too! I like 'futari' from I Album, swan song and Secret code from J album also amazing.

You will have to PM the mod account of NNK with all details of the dead file such as:
a) name of file
b) date of broadcast
c) url in NNK where the file is found
d) which links in said url are dead. be specific

e) After sending that PM, send another PM informing them that you just sent a PM and it could have landed in the Lj spam/suspicious messages folder of their lj inbox. This precaution is necessary because LJ policy snce 2013 is to automatically assume all PMs/comments with links, urls, emails are spam and such messages/comments will be put into the spam or suspicious messages folder of the recipient's Lj inbox. When this happens, the recipient will not receive any notification of said messages/comments and won't even know these messages/comments exist unless they religious check all possible folders in their lj inbox daily.

When you perform (a) to (d) make sure you do this in a wordpad/notepad doc and save it. It will be handy in case you get no answer and have to seek recourse in Steps 2 and 3.

If you did the above in Step 1, but receive no response after 1 month, look at Step 2.

Make sure you performed Step 1 already and you did not get any response.

Make sure you check all folders of your LJ inbox to see that you have no response. I have already explained why this is necessary.

Assuming you have done Step 1 and there is absolutely no response, go to the NNK profile page and look for all the LJ names of all the mods/maintainers. Check the profiles of these mods/maintainers 1 by 1. Some of them have email addresses listed. Write them down but don't do anything with these addresses yet.

When you are going through all the mod/maintainer Lj profiles, take note of
- when they were last online on LJ. if they have not been around for more than 2 months, this means even if you email or PM them, chances are very high that they will not respond as they probably aren't on LJ/fandom anymore.
- this is my personal experience when PMing people whose LJ profiles state they have not been around for 2 months or more.

PM all the mods and maintainers
(i) Start with saying that you are a member of NNK and that you notice from the NNK profile that they are a mod/maintainer
(ii) State that you are contacting them because there are dead links and you PMed the NNk mod account 1 month ago but received no response
(iii) State that you notice the comm, mods, maintainers etc are not active/around anyone and you don't know who to contact about dead links.
(iv) state that you are aware NNK does not allow anyone to re-up their links anywhere
(v) state that you hope they can help and provide new links in the future.
(vi) state that you will be patient and willing to wait for new links no matter how long it takes
(vii) state that you would like to receive a Pm if they provide new links, but also state that you understand if they do not contact you about new links because it will be troublesome for them to reply and contact every single person who asks to be contacted for this reason
(viii) put all the info listed in Step 1(a) to (d) in your PM
(ix) after you have done Step 2 (i) to (viii), perform Step 1(e) where you Pm them again to let them know you sent a Pm that could have landed in the spam/suspicious messages folder of their lj inbox.
(x) also state that you sent the same PM to all the other mods/maintainers of NNk because you dont know who is active and who will reply, or even if NNk is still alive or a dead comm

If you performed Step 2 and there is no response from any of them after 2 months, perform step 3

[personal profile] casterap 2016-01-03 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Assuming you have PM the NNK mod account and got no answer in any of your lj inbox folders, and assuming you have PMed all the mods/maintainers and got not answer in any of your lj inbox folders, do Step 3.

This involves recalling which mods of NNK have email addresses listed in their lj profile. Email them according to the method outlined in Step 2(i) to (ix).

Step 3 is the last resort. The email addresses listed on their profiles may not be active. If the email bounces back to you, assume that none of the mods are around anymore and chances of getting new links ever on NNK are so slim as to be neglibible

If the email you sent does not bounce back to you, brace yourself that it may take several months (my experience proved that this can take any time from 4 months to 1 year) for them to get back to you by email. This is because the email addy on their profile is one of their spare/fandom/hobby/not regularly checked ones.

If you performed step 3 and do not get any answer after 1 year, then it is safe to assume the com is dead and none of the mods are around anymore. in this case, it is best to resign yourself that it is impossible to get any dead file from this comm anymore because they don't allow any re-ups by non-mods in any way.


When you encounter any comm with dead links, you should differentiate between the mod accounts and the personal LJs of the mods/maintainers.

In the case of NNK, the official NNk mod accounts are nnk_mod and nnkmod

To learn the Lj names of all mods of any comm, go to the profile page of the comm and scroll down until you see the word "administrators" on the lefthand side. Once you found that section, click the words "owner", "maintainers", "moderators" to see the Lj names of those people. After that, it's on you to look at their lj profiles to when they were last on lj, if there are email addresses for you to write to etc.

do not email the livejournal address you see on any profile pages, look for non-livejournal email addresses to email. if the mod/maintainer's personal lj profile has more than 1 email addy listed, try all of them so long as they are not the lj email addy.

Everything in Steps 1-3 is the way I do things when I encounter dead links in any comm. It is also how I gauge if a comm is dead and how I determine whether to give up on ever having a dead file.

[personal profile] casterap 2016-01-03 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
It is also better to assume that IF there are ever new links, the mods won't tell you or anyone who left them a comment/PM/email. There are some comms where the mods never respond to any communication, but they put up new links when they are apprised of dead links.

Because some mods in some comms never respond to any communiques, if you are very hard up for the file, you should bookmark the relevant page in the comm containing the dead link and check that page regularly to see if there are new links. I personally check once a month. If the links are still dead after 1 and 1/2 years after you performed Steps 1 to 3, and there are no entries in the comm about dead links and re-ups after 1 and 1/2 years, it is safe to assume the comm is dead and there will never be re-ups and it is impossible to get the file you want. That has been my personal way of approaching the issue of dead links.

[identity profile] kurokouchi.livejournal.com 2016-01-04 03:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh my God, thank you! This is a ridiculously detailed account on how to do the whole system thing, and I'm really grateful for all the effort you gave for it. @___@ I'm always way too shy to send anyone PMs, but I'll give the mods a shot!

E-mailing someone sounds so intense, though. Have you really done that before?
casterap: (Garfield made you smile)

[personal profile] casterap 2016-01-04 03:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, I have emailed mods before and had emails bounce back to me because the email address is not valid anymore. That's how I know that a comm is definitely dead, the mods won't ever be back, and the files are lost forever more.

In another case, the only active co-mod/maintainer got back to me 1 year after I sent the email telling me that it was her fandom email and she doesn't check it often, and that dead links will stay dead because they don't want their files to ever be in circulation again. In this scenario, even if the file I want is unretrievable forever, at least I have closure and know the dead file will stay dead.

P/S: For all comms with dead links, it would be behove you to do the following before going to Steps 1 to 3:
a) check if the comm has policies about dead links. these are the rules regarding dead links, how to report them etc
b) some comms have posts for reporting dead links. it's on you to comb the comm thoroughly for such post.
c) some comms have posts where dead links are re-uploaded. it's on you to comb the comm for such posts. this is important because Lj rules state that only the original maker of a post can edit it, therefore if the only active mod left in a comm isn't the original maker of the post with the dead file, they can't edit it to put up new links there. as such, they have to create a new post for the new links.
d) some comms have policies and "how to" guides regarding dead links on their profile pages. in such comms, the things on their profile pages are completely different from the things stated in their rules and application posts. it's on you to read all rules + applications posts as well as lj profile of the comm in question. i know at least two comm which do this and on their profile page are email addys where people MUST email them about dead links, as this is because they do not ever read/reply to comments about dead links and they don't check PMs
e) only when a comm does not have any post regarding how to report dead links and only when a comm doesn't a post saying "here are the re-up of dead links", then only do you perform steps 1 to 3.

It's okay that you can't help, haha! I'm actually just really glad that you always seem to support my releases. ;___; I re-watched a couple of the episodes I did for TokiKake the other day with my girlfriend and saw SOOOOOOO many mistakes, so I'm thinking of re-releasing better-quality subs for those... one day...


[identity profile] mellow-mango.livejournal.com 2016-01-04 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
Which program do you use for timing? I'll have a look so I can help you =) (if it's not too difficult!!)

[identity profile] kurokouchi.livejournal.com 2016-01-04 03:21 pm (UTC)(link)

For timing I use Aegisub (http://www.aegisub.org/)! There's a pretty in-depth guide to it here (http://docs.aegisub.org/3.2/Main_Page/), too. It's not really that difficult, I think, but it's really tedious in a way and you might need 2-4 hours to sub like... one DASH episode, for example. and this depends on your attention span too I don't have any deadlines for timing except for the birthday stuff I plan on doing for Gussan and Mabo, hahaha. Why is January 10 and 11 so close!?

But anyway, for the manual all you have to pay attention to are the timing sections. :D I usually do all the typesetting/font styling things on my own, so that's fine.

... You do know that you're a little crazy, right? ._. Where the hell do you find the time to do your homework and shit on top of all the translating you do?? I'm a working adult with no homework to do and I'm already so slow at the few projects I have on my plate.

Get enough rest, k?

and go finish that GeI segment!

[identity profile] kurokouchi.livejournal.com 2016-01-04 03:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm honestly not sure. XD

When I was still doing TOKIO Kakeru regularly and the first semester was still going on, I only needed about 4-5 hours for doing the episode. So I'd finish half of it on Monday, half on Tuesday, and then send the translations to my timer on Wednesday. Then I'd do the typesetting + encoding when I got home from dorm on Friday, upload either Friday evening or Saturday morning, and then voilĂ ! Weekend releases!

Now that I'm on vacation, though, I just--I don't know. :| I just know this semester's gonna be crazy busy for me (and my main project's gonna be Fragile), so I think all these extra guest appearances and stuff I can only do now while I don't have class and Fragile hasn't started yet.


[identity profile] soritt.livejournal.com 2016-01-09 05:12 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry hon I didn't see the notification until today xD

Yes I can time some DASH episodes if you want me to. I will need a couple of days (up to a week) to finish them though. I started an internship so I am a bit busier now xD Just inbox me link to raw file and the translation. I can do color code and basic stuff, nothing fancy though. It would be best if you do the editing yourself (I have a weird taste in font ...).

*chokes on her coffee* *sputter* True facts are true, though. XD

Dude, do not stress that GeI segment! Shika and I can meet in the middle, close up the gap, and take that one off of your plate. That won't be hard at all for us to do, and we're happy to take some stress off of you if we can! You have a billion and one things in your list, and senpais need more love, so please keep going with the Tomo and Mabo projects because there's always more room for TOKIO action.

Btw, I have that NNK AniShi episode with Dots if you need a personal re-up. Also, I think I have most if not all of Kinki's albums (not singles) if you'd like that, too. ^_^v

[identity profile] kurokouchi.livejournal.com 2016-01-11 11:24 am (UTC)(link)
URK. I only have like five minutes of it translated, so maybe... that would be best... if you two took it... :'| Do you guys have an encoder, though? 'cause if anything I'll be able to do that, at least. /weeps Just let me know where y'all want to post it and I'll upload it for you and all.

THERE'S SO MUCH TOKIO GOING ON. Fragile's coming out on Wednesday so my main focus is gonna be that, though, admittedly. I still wanna do the DASH Island progress report that showed on 12/30 because I have no sense of self-control but I didn't find a good raw provider. /weeps

AND I GOT THE DOTS EPISODE, SO I AM GOOD WITH THAT. He was so cute. T______T There're a couple of KinKi things that I was gonna steal off of the domotokyoudai comm that were dead, though, like some interview they did for Ningen Shikkaku... but I doubt that's anywhere, right. :'| THANK YOU, THOUGH!!!
