We’re so fucking cutting edge.
Softsubs > Hardsubs
In exchange for the loss of visual quality (typesetting, karaoke) that comes from using softsub scripts, you can turn our subtitles off and watch the show without them. I mean, you download releases to not watch the subs, right?
Oh, and you can like… rip the scripts, change the scripts up, and then remux the scripts so you have your own self-styled release! Because that’s what everyone does!
And, uh… Well, yes. That’s it. But I mean, isn’t that awesome? Right? Fuck hardsubs! And fuck any group that fucking dares to hardsub anything. They deserve mocking because… because they do!
10-Bit > 8-Bit
In exchange for some people being unable to watch the show, file size is decreased and banding is slightly lowered. Holy fucking shit, isn’t that great?
Yes, yes, some will make noise about being unable to play 10-bit releases on various systems (like certain phone models), but I mean come on. Would you rather have a release that’s a guaranteed watch or a release that you may not be able to play that has slightly less banding?
I know which side I’m on. Fuck late adopters — Go, fansubbing!
IRC > *
A chat protocol developed in 1988 is superior to everything else that people could use to communicate.
True, nobody knows what IRC is, and only fansubbers exist on our IRC channels, but I mean… when a channel with 500+ people on at a time has such brilliant conversations like this over the course of an hour:
It’s clear that this quality of conversation necessitates a devotion to IRC, as opposed to something where real people converse.
While half of today’s typesetting won’t show up properly on CCCP, its default picture is Chiyo-chan from Azumanga Daioh, so we’re obligated to use it!
Sure, the last CCCP release was in November of 2011, but they’ll be coming out with a new release any day now! We just gotta stand by them!! After all, it must be so super hard to toss a bunch of codecs in a pack together call it a day, right? I mean these people have families and lives!
Popular Trackers, Best Trackers!
Nyaa.eu and bakabt are possibly the greatest trackers ever created. After all, they claim to be able to determine the best releases for a given series. Nyaa.eu, with their “A+” torrents and BakaBT with every torrent they list.
And how do they determine quality? Why, that’s simple! Whichever group
sucks up most to the people in charge is legitimately the best gets the nod. And if your group just so happens to have a staff member on these sites who is in charge of determining “quality”, well that clearly won’t affect anything. These judges are anything but not impartial!
The other scenes must be so jealous of how tech-savvy and cool we are. I bet they want to have sex with us.
