We expect users to have some common sense and so the more obvious rules are not stated here. Remember, this channel is dedicated to different forms of Tokusatsu and other Japanese media.
1. We ask that all users please use common sense when in the irc channel or on the forum.
2. English only in the channel please
3. Do not give out spoilers for episodes we have not released subs of. Meaning if you have seen it raw keep quiet or face a swift kick. This also means previews of next episode.
4. Please do not ask when stuff is going to be released
5. Use !list to browse the list of available fserves
6. If you are in need of a seed on a torrent please post here. Please keep all requests on the forum and away from the channel.
7. Guest nicks are not allowed to be used in the channel. Please use a real nick by typing /nick XXXXXX in the status window. XXXXX being what you want your nick to be.
8. Try to keep Americanized show talk to a minimum since we all don't like it
9. Remember to exit fserves properly or face being banned from the fserves
10. Please be considerate of other users who may not have watched new releases within the first 24 hours
11. Religious and political talk should be kept to a minimum, since discussion of the topics can lead to disagreement, chaos and crying in the bathroom.
12. Don't used colored text as your regular speech. Using it on occasion to be funny or whatever is fine, but it's annoying to force people to see your colored text since you don't know what their color setup is like.
13. Don't talk about other fansub groups that are working on the same projects as we are.
Thank you. Have fun!takenoko wrote:Actually we have a very specific rule against distributing music. While we can justify having fansubs by saying "the video is Japanese, it needs English subs for people to understand" we can't really say the same thing about music. It's not that hard to buy CDs from Japan online either. (And it's insanely trivial to download music from the Internets anyway)
Besides, I want #tv-nihon to be known for its talent. While we can put a little bit of ourselves in our subs, there's no talent in just ripping stuff for CDs or redistributing stuff other people have ripped.
