Important announcement about D-addicts  
the admin changed his mind, so subtitles are staying, but the subtitles sub-forum will be members-only from now on. (plus some extra restrictions regarding linking to torrent sites and copyrighted material, but it's still unclear, I guess he'll announce something in the future) Hi everyone!

Once again, this entry is not directly related to Arashi Project, but we thought it was important to notify you all as soon as possible.

D-addicts just announced that they will remove all of their subtitles from their forum in two weeks due to copyright reasons. Due to the nature of subtitles sharing on D-addicts, with a big variety of different providers, some of which are unreachable now, it is highly unlikely that we can create  a kind of backup, at least for the Arashi related subtitles, here on Arashi project.

That is why we urge you to backup what you can, while you can NOW!

PS: A short list of examples you can find on D-addicts are Yankee bokou ni kaeru, Hana yori dango, Ryuusei no kizuna, Maou etc...

UPDATE 1: Seems like SARS fansub is in discussion with D-Addicts to back it up, so there's still hope :)

UPDATE 2: The admin changed his mind, so subtitles are staying, but the subtitles sub-forum will be members-only from now on. (plus some extra restrictions regarding linking to torrent sites and copyrighted material, but it's still unclear.

This is so sad.
It will be harder and harder to watch Jdoramas with Eng subs.

Don't worry, many people are backing up. Admin let us 2 weeks, so we have little time, not like megaupload
pali_mari: Genepali_mari on September 10th, 2018 04:27 pm (UTC)
But without D-Addicts, there won't be the one center point for everything. People will have to go here and there to look for stuff. That's why it's so sad.

As for megaupload, I had just renewed and paid for another year of membership when it was pulled down in the next 2 days. I was stunned for a long time.

Thanks for the update ^-^. Hope SARS plan will succeed. Alone the loss of the fan-sub-map would be a desaster. And it need to be updated season by season...

I saw what Sars is doing but they need more people to help, so I hope more people can help
