Oh - it's THAT mod post.  
Hi folks.

I know I've been AWOL, but real life has been pretty hectic. I do go online a few times a week to approve members, but I do admit that I haven't had the chance to fix some posts for a few months now. I am truly apologetic - I feel bad, I really do. However, I won't deny that some comments and messages (that are full of nothing but demands) I've gotten over the past few weeks have made me feel worse, but I'm choosing to ignore those. After all, an overwhelming majority of you guys have supported this project since day 1, and I've made a decision to focus on the good rather than the bad.

So no need to worry - I'm still here (I will always be!). I've just been pretty busy. In line with this, I need some help. I need a co-moderator - one who can focus on rebuilding AnM's and nyanchan's + techni_teddy's subbed files, most especially. If you feel like you're up for the job, please let me know. Just comment away.

Oh, and an update - join AST if you haven't yet. My first mod post would be up in a few. ;)

Thanks for the update. I completely understand hectic RL getting in the way. :) Hopefully things will settle down a bit too?

Thank for letting us know. I hope things settle for you soon. :)
lmangellmangel on March 23rd, 2014 07:18 pm (UTC)
Just so I didn't misunderstand, what you need help with is finding someone to get a hold of the links from everyone and make sure all the files are linked correctly in said post, and that all the videos from each of the mentioned communities get a proper masterlist(with the links)?

In this case I'd be very happy to help.

Also, the community aside, I'm glad to know you're okay. Hope your life is less hectic now. I think there are a lot who be up for helping, so let us know.

do you need help on updating the list/link or something else? if on updating links/list, i guess i can help with it, as i do have some free time now.

pm me for anything :)

gambatte. it doesn't matter if you can't be on top of things all the time. as long as eventually people work together and get things done, it doesn't matter if it's done slowly or in chunks. good luck!

Take care of things in your RL first. That's your priority. Everything else can wait. So no need to worry :) Also, I'd like to say thanks for everything that you have put together, including the uploaders!

I'll be glad to help to organise the masterlist and update them, if that's what you mean. I also can help to revamp the community layout and organise links following the example of we_make_storm community.

totally understand about real life.

dont worry about the few negative people. you will always get that no matter what community etc.
the thing is to not let them get to you and realise that most do appreciate what you are doing.

thanks again.
renchan27renchan27 on March 23rd, 2014 10:44 pm (UTC)
Take care of your things first! And still thank you for the hard work you've been putting into this.

I would be glad to help you! I like organizing stuff on an every day basis and I'm on the computer alot and visit livejournal mostly all the time! Whatever you need I'm glad too help!

Thanks for the update^^

Sorry I cant be a co-moderator full time now but as I offered before I still can make the AnM list and send it to you by mail so that you just have to copy/paste it.

It's good to hear from you again. We completely understand about real life getting in the way. :)

I saw that there are already lots of offer for help, but still, if you need extra hands, I'd be happy to help. :)

Yay! Thanks for the update. Don't worry about the negative comments, and please don't feel bad! I think it's great that you've even set up this project. :) Thank you.
charingyu: Arashicharingyu on March 24th, 2014 04:36 am (UTC)
Please don't feel bad about it and don't mind about the negative comments. I'm sure we all understand how big this project this and how much effort goes behind organising everything! And i'm sure we certainly understand that real life takes priority!!! :)

akai_kurochanakai_kurochan on March 24th, 2014 05:27 am (UTC)
Yay, so happy to hear from you again~!
Don't feel bad~ I'm totally understand if you're busy in real life and I'm glad you ignore those bad comments and messages...
We will wait patiently~ ^^
Sorry for not able to help... I'm still new and don't have good internet connection... =(
Ganbare guys! Forever in debt for you to make this project~
Zakkiichigo21496 on March 24th, 2014 06:54 am (UTC)
Aw there's no need for you to apologise or feel bad! I think the majority of us, especially the new members, are grateful that you started the project, and for everything you've done already! :) <3
neji_sorarikuneji_sorariku on March 24th, 2014 04:01 pm (UTC)
I did wonder what happened. I hope RL is going fine now. if you need help in organizing the links, I'll be more than happy to lend a hand. :)
simopimosimopimo on March 24th, 2014 04:04 pm (UTC)

Don't worry, please take all the time you need! Personally, I think everyone (including me, even if I grow impatient sometimes heh ^^;;) should be patient enough to wait on subbing communities like this...restoring dead links and uploading huge files is a huge task and it requires time. You're the people who will provide Arashi-related stuff to us and make us understand (and love) this group even more, after all. We should cut you guys some slack.

Ganbatte on your RL stuff :)
perkyandproudperkyandproud on March 25th, 2014 09:23 pm (UTC)
Real life does have a way of kicking butt and taking names! I am glad you are well :)

Yay for all these lovely offers of help! :)

Yes, just ignore all those negative people :( Entitled people are entitled to nothing! *hugs you*

...am I a member of AST? I don't remember now....
4reen4reen on March 27th, 2014 12:07 am (UTC)
Glad you're okay and thank you for updating. Don't mind negative comment, just take your real life first as first priority. You've already being great help for me, really >_< Hope your real life will going well and must to! Just believe you can through it and you'll be fine. Will wait you to come back ^^

And maybe I can't help much. Only can upload some mirror link or just updating the link, but you can PM me if you need some help :)

arashichibichanarashichibichan on March 29th, 2014 05:35 am (UTC)
Hi! :)
Thanks for the update! Don't worry, do the best you can. Besides, we all have hectic moments at some point... But you are still kind enough to care for the community :) You're awesome! So don't let bad comments make you feel sad.
I wish I could help you but I don't really know how all of this works :P haha But I'll be cheering you on! ^^

I hope your life is a bit less hectic now and that you'll be able to take a break :)

Take care! <3

netika70 on May 20th, 2014 07:45 pm (UTC)

uploading when it is possible is my line because I know people got busy with their own life and to find time to make a project like this and trying their best is really enough to thank them.
I can not help in re-uploading because I came late where most of Arashi communities are not active as before!
thank u and for all who participate in this project ^^
ニンneen on May 27th, 2014 03:08 pm (UTC)
Hey you! I don't know if you're still looking for someone in order to help you but if that's the case, I'd be very happy to. I own a lot of Arashi subbed videos but a lot of them don't need to be reuploaded. I let a comment on the posts where I was able to help tough. ;)
So yeah, feel free to contact me if you need it! From tomorrow until the end of September, it'll be my summer break, so I have a LOOO~T of free time. (Almost too much... >.>)
I hope everything's fine with you right now, and just ignore the negative feedback. Ganbatte~

thank you very much
i truly wanted to thank you for what you're doing. It is a wonderful thing that you are helping new arashi fans and eben older ones who wanted to watch shows again. This is an amazing thing and you're a wonderful person(s) for doing this.
joceeh on June 11th, 2014 07:54 pm (UTC)
Do not mind
Don not worry we will wait patiently :) :)
Just ignore the people who just trying to put you down and whatever!!
