Hmm . . . I think we should. I'll just do it anyways. If people disagree, or a mod/admin says no, I'll take it down.

The message is "This is for people who deserve special thanks and is currently not on the Staff."

Yea, if a mod/admin doesn't want it, just say so. Or delete it.



Edit: Forgot to add, the users currently on the list are Kwok (he did a bit of formating and other stuff) and Trigger-happy.

Added HolyCow. Hmm . . . . I'll just keep the 2 on because no one else is doing anything, and they do deserve thanks . . . . Meh. As a general rule of thumb. I never add my own name/username to stuff like that. Don't plan to break that anytime soon.

No prob, I'll work my way up slowly but surely ^-^. I'll try and take that test though since it'll be a good way for me to see how well my English really is (aside from taking tests in college @[email protected]).

Don't sweat it. There are no obligations here (execpt for the translators :shock: ) You'll probably go faster and be better than I am. :D

there's really no obligation even for translators :D Oni-san can't really force you. But I guess its good etiquette to finish the chapter you sign up on.

I think the hard part in editing is trying to decipher the nested clauses in a sentence and some passive voices. Asian and Spanish writing tend to allow you to nest more clauses, more ideas into one sentence, and passive voice isn't a big deal as in English.

This is for people who deserve special thanks and is currently not on the Staff.


No point having my name there then :D

And let's face it, I didn't really do anything. I haven't even read the translated chapter 1 yet :P

I'm already a member of the staff (translator for GOTH and SuzuHaru), so I can't be included on the list :D

Hey

Heya.

Are you guys still recruiting? I'm currently studying some Chinese over here in China. So, I was thinking that helping you guys out would be a great way for me to brush up on my Chinese.

Regards,

Yo letshin,

Thanks for your interest in contributing to the project >:3

Right now we're in dire need of translators, but I'll have to double-confirm with erehwon if he has the chinese RAWs. I'll get back to you ASAP (around a day or two).

Once again, thanks for your interest in contributing to this project! :D

Regards,
HolyCow

Erm, yup. Guest was / is me. I screwed up somewhere. My spoken Chinese is not bad, but my written is pretty... bad. So I might be a bit slow, seeing that I'll be using my little dictionairy a lot XD.

Would it be better for u to have my email?

sorry, i was kinda busy. As long as you can read decently, then you will be fine, it doesn't matter if you can't write Chinese since you are translating...

Well, we appreciate your help. Let me know what you think.

Now, unfortunately I have absolutely no translating abilities at all, so I'm unable to help in that area. :( However, I will keep an eye out for anyone who might be willing to assist in the translation (though with me it's more like I'll hunt them down until I find somebody willing to work :D ). Thank you for translating this, Kaze no Stigma is one of my all-time favorite series.
