Suggestion: Adding fansubgroup members? [DENIED]

Post by Wlah » Sat Jul 02, 2005 4:15 am

This is just a little thought...
How about adding some extra to the groupinfo pages and then to the aid's?

What I'm thinking about is being able to add members to fansubgroups and apply titles as well by adding those to the groupinfo tab in the aid (or something alike)

something like a 'member info' tab with a number you could press and get something like...

ANBU - credits for aid - eid - fid
crustul - Translation
member - task

uhm... Dunno, too bloatish perhaps? :?
The idea was to make fansubbers searchable...

I'm pretty much completely against this. The further away anidb stays from the murky world of fansubber politics, the better, in my opinion - the last think I want to do is have to mediate via creq over who kicks who out of the group, who deserves what titles, etc ad infinitum. If the groups maintain decent (and bt link free) pages, the info should go there.

I wouldn't care a bit for a 'current members' list.
It's easy to give titles.. Just look at the file (and ONLY that), note the credits and add to anidb.
Noone would care about who's active and who's not.

What about Winry's Wolf, and such cases? Also, I think staff changes too much from ep to ep, would be a lot of data and werk.

Don't really know about winry's wolf...
Yeah I know it'll be a lot of data.
The question is whether it will be bloatish (make anidb much much larger AND decreasing general performance) or actually implementable without much loss in speed and such...
any addition to anidb is major work, just look at the categories :)

I think Rar is right. While it sounds like a nice feature, I think it's more work and trouble than it's worth. I really don't think people would benefit a whole lot from having such information available.

i think so too.
it might be "nice to have" for some ppl, but most users of anidb would never use it.
i don't think it's worth the time required to implement and maintain it.

BYe!

Naahhh... they change every day and I don't think is useful for the mass of users.
