Thats correct Yukio, so if you know of someone or if you yourself can translate then by all means we can start again.

Temp sig set from a long time ago, only until I get around to making a new one. Been ages.

Well, I am not capable of translating so while we do look for a translator are there any other ideas for what we could do that people would want or enjoy that has to do with anime and/or manga that we can do in the mean time while we try to find a translator? Maybe one that does not require a translator.

Maybe just give a list of things you go to anime and manga based sites for if that will help.

Well, scanslation would make more sense as it is a play on the word translation you would have to have that "s" there Waffo.

Hmm, so if we actually managed to find a translator then it would be possible to start the scanslation group again, correct?

That's what I think but no one uses scanslation anymore.  An old term that's died?

No, I don't think it is a term that died but merely idiots who don't know how to spell. Interesting how many there are these days that would rather do whatever is quickest instead of spending a little more time on their grammar. ^_^

Ahoy there everyone~!

My name is dink, and I'll be your captain for this go-around. I have plans to don the Yanime flag, and the first course of action that I'm planning on is picking up 'Addicted to Curry' and jointing it with the last group that was responsible for the project. That being with NCIS. (I'm also assuming these guys have the RAWs and everything)

With that said, I feel that an introduction is most certainly due on my part. Currently, I am the leader of a group called the DFCG. (I'll provide you some external links for those of you who are skeptical below) As a result, I'm currently translating two other projects affiliated with this group so I have my hands tied down quite a bit but... the good news is if enough of you are serious we'll be able to get this to take off.

I'll be providing the translations for Addicted to Curry and for those of you who are interested, please contact me either on IRCHighway (inside the official #yanime channel) or through PM. Hope to hear from you all soon~

(P.S. I know this is a bit off-topic, but I was taught that the correct way of saying it is/was 'scanlations' not 'scanslation'. >.>)

http://dfcg-scans.com <- the website looks like crap, i know. but my designer should have the website up and about in about a month or so.

http://mangahelpers.com/news/details/162 <- here's an interview I had a while back with the ever-popular MangaHelpers for those of you who are interested.

edit:
http://www.shorttext.com/0b6n8she7 <- Oh, and I almost forgot. Here's an example of my work as a translator for those who are curious. ^.^~

And yet your title is "Scanslation Staff".  Awesome. 

Man, you scanslation staff people get training and your own vocabulary lessons?  Wow!  ^^

Ah, almost forgot.  Welcome to Yanime and our oddness?

I do wish I could do something to help with the situation of the scanslating scene and Yanime.  I'm taking beginner Japanese in college and I really don't think that is at the level of any manga.  Hell, we just learned how to say "to want" today.  >_<  Proofreading comes pretty naturally to me, though.  But all other positions are pretty easy to fill, except for the main one that you have to be freaking fluent in Japanese for.

what happened to all the great translators who worked on ichigo and addicted?  would they be unwilling to come back on board?  even if they're casual about it, a casual translator's still better than no translator.

They're busy with life, I assume.  Like the rest of us.  Not much free time after you graduate high school.

Basically that was it. They wanted social lives, or got a job or new job. Heck, my current job is taking a lot of time I might otherwise spend doing things like editing.

I've been considering turning this site into a community-oriented (but not a Facebook/MySpace/social network of the day clone!) review/discussion site. Community members could submit reviews of licensed or fansub material which would be reviewed by an editor then published. Discussion on the shows could happen in the forum, and a real nice site could be created.

I know AnimeSuki is huge with their forum, but we'd have an advantage of being closer-knit and possibly with some solid reviews.

Now all I need to do is find the time to get this all going...
