what if you add them to the DB as parody files? then you could have a user option to toggle weather or not you can view these types of files.

in regards to comments like "watch a real parody like excel saga," i have seen it, and it was good. i saw puni puni and itwas better. i saw the full metal alchemist parodies and they were the best.

however, i will admit that two days ago i was talking to my brother, who was ignoring me at the time, about the best of whatever. i didn't say that the ful metal thing was the funniest becuase it is true that it is not a series. i instead said it was puni puni.

Parody subs can simply be viewed as very poor fansubs and thus should be allowed (under the main episode entries), although a flag would be useful. Fandubs are something else altogether and should probably be banned from the db.

the only fan dubbing is during the fight seen in "the thoery of awsome" parody episode of FMA. i didn't know people actialy tried to dub anime them selves. God that must end up[ sucking some serious ass!

par·o·dy

1) A literary or artistic work that imitates the characteristic style of an author or a work for comic effect or ridicule.

2) Something so bad as to be equivalent to intentional mockery; a travesty.

Yep, definitely not what we want to promote here @ the DB.

Sure. And it'd be good to save all size/ed2k pairs in some blacklist, so they won't get added again.

"OMFG WTF LOL" (c)

Group that seems to release only parodies: http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?s ... 86&nonav=1. Their description is very informative as well... Please, people, let's kill that shit.

The killing will soon start I think ;), cause I saw a blacklist feature for the mods.

additional types of specials will be implemented soon.
parodies will get their own place and there will be a profile option to hide them.

Once this is implemented maybe. Until then I will revolt every time somebody adds parody garbage.

...not the same thing; this thread is about parody subtitles. AniDB's policy on fan-made works using material from real anime is quite clear.

I hope we can hide parody subs from the anime page.
[edit]
Yes we can, great. :)
