Some people probably already know that this is my style (especially when we're near the end of a school term). When I get frustrated, I just take out all the subbing progresses and go in hiding (simply becoming non-responsive - not reading messages and not responding to them). However, Zahra has convinced me to clarify everything to the public just in case I do go in hiding for the next 2-3 weeks.
When releases get stuck like this, you're NOT the only one who is frustrated. I've already done all that I can to keep the projects moving. If the current situation is a result of my bad organization, I admit my fault, I apologize to everyone for this, and I am trying my best to resolve it.
If you want me to describe the current situation, then we have met a bottleneck. I hope that you can understand how things have become very unpredictable when we near the end of a school term. I have to wait for the completion of each part just like you do. However, it is unfair and impolite to ask a subber who is currently subbing a part to SPEED UP their subbing progress and neglect their school work.
Being the person I am, I would NEVER take a new project if we don't have the ability to do so. Why does My Lucky Star seem to be moving while the others are not? The first few episodes just happen to be subbed by subbers who has free time. At the current state, cutting a project down will not speed up the OTHER releases. Things are progressing, but just not as promptly as before.
We are not lacking subbers to complete projects because if we are, then we could simply recruit for more. It is our system that is the cause of this delay. However, it is this very system that works best for us for both organizing and producing quality subs. No design is perfect, and there is always a trade-off to everything (quality versus speed). I am sorry that we cannot meet the demands of all our viewers...
Thanks to those who have been understanding and patiently waiting for our releases :)
