What is the problem? RAWs are available at a number of other sites, it's not like you can't watch them elsewhere, but it's nice to have the subs...

OK, we have gone over this so many times... *sigh*

If we approved the odd filipino movie without subs it would satisfy the very few people who speak tagalog. GREAT! But realeasing the same movie with english subs would make everyone happy.

YES there are many, many, many asian people on this site. But not all of them, in fact most of the ones I have met can't follow a complete plot in their native tounge since they are in fact not fluent in their native tounge. However since ALL cr member can read english (otherwise how would they navigate the site) regardless of heritage, korean, norweigan, japanese, estonian, chinese, spanish, american, german, thai, french, taiwanese, dutch...................

See the bigger picture mate, there are plenty of chinese sites airing the raw shows in china. Why does CR have to do the same thing because a minority of users complain that they cant watch their wuxia on here before it is subbed.

We are trying to build a community that all of us can enjoy! Why should we disregard the, I dont know; lets say swedes with a population of 8 million odd people because they dont speak any asian language. How many asian languages do you speak? 1? 2? None? Your mom knows one, and you can almost understand a raw episode?

So if you want a chinese raw show released. Why not release all shows without subs, enjoy Goong and HYD in korean and Japanese. Because you are asian of course you understand what they say.

People like you really makes me wonder if there is even a point to uploading and sharing with people.

What have you contributed to CR? 279 video comments... Are you one of them (1st to comment) but in chinese?

P.S HYD was approved in LQ with subs before the HQ was uploaded. Not the RAW's.

I'm well aware that this will probably be removed by the forum moderators because it might be flaming but nothing gets me so wound up like comments like this.

People like you are the reason we lost oreocookie one off the biggest uploaders who just frankly got sick off people complaining. We try to share and improve CR and all we get from people like you are complaints, that the quality might be slightly bad or the subs are not great.

Well then leave CR and download all of what we share somewhere else and watch it on your own computer.

We don't claim to be gods or anywhere near fansubbers, we simply upload all the goodnes we download anyway.

I honestly feel like stopping to upload after hearing that people have the audacity to come up with this **** even though they contribute absolutely nothing themselves. I could live with it if it was a 13 year no0b but you are 27 years of age!

GROW THE **** UP MAN!

^ Reason #278 why Pewee is a god.

I have had PMs from those who complained about not having their chosen language than the other (e.g. Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai, Tagalog, etc.) in some of my uploads, e.g. Young & Dangerous series, The Eye II, and such.

It's bad enough to get PMs demanding I should upload FASTER or that I should upload this or that instead of whatever I had, but to have people having a go at me for "choosing" a language they dislike takes the biscuit.

I fully support CR's English subtitles rule for one pure selfish reason: my brother is deaf. He can read Japanese subtitles, but it's hard to obtain Japanese subtitles for non-Japanese films and drama, such as Chinese, Thai, etc.

The best option for him is go for the ones with English subtitles. A number of his deaf mates (including those in England, US, HK, and Japan) visit this site for that reason alone. I admit he's the main reason why I spent a lot of time uploading a number of films to show my appreciation to other uploaders and CR.

Anyway, the others are right - you can always go to other sites.

^^ Well then you (plural) need to learn patience. English-speaking people are willing to wait for English-subtitled work to be released so I see no reason why those who want Mandarin/Cantonese subtitles cannot wait. If you are THAT impatient, then use torrents. >_>

haha...i feel like a second class citizen...of CR simply becoz i'm asian, and actually know how to speak an asian language. i can understand that all subs should be in english, this is after all an english site, but it should also be noted that some show don't have english subs, and i guess that's why moderators allow chinese subs in place of that. but, a lot of english subs are rather slow. like prince of tennis, eyeshield 21 and stuff, the chinese subs are way ahead, so i really don't see why chinese subs can't be put up temporarily, and when the eng subs come out, they will be the replaced.

i realize raws are totally out of the question, but to please the masses, and for those with the added advantage of knowing another language...subs in different langs should be allowed, no?

Haha, this may be a little tasteless but:

Anyway, you're not a second class citizen here. There's plenty of others exactly like you. However, since this is an English site, only English material should be posted. If you wnat to watch subs in other languages find another site because it isn't appropriate here.
Posted 5/22/07
^haha nice. Thats halarious.
I agree with everyone else here. Its a english site. Dont complain. Shut up and get on with life.

^ Your response was just plain tasteless.

^^^ Again, it's a matter of patience. There are other sites that have non-English subtitles.

You may think it would be nice to have Chinese subtitles...but we cannot be hypocritical. If we allowed Chinese subtitles, that means we allow Filipino, Korean, French, Spanish, German, and every other languages' subtitles onto the site. Now imagine how difficult it would be to navigate through 10 different language subtitles to find the one you're looking for. It would be chaotic and time-consuming for the users...just think about how bad it would be for the moderators.

All the moderators are asking for is a little consideration when you post about this. There are moderators that would like to have other subtitles on the site too but understand that there are more negative effects than positive effects of allowing them onto the site.

The organization of the videos on this site is one of the reasons I like coming here. It's very time consuming to search for videos on a site like Youtube which has a lot of videos in many different languages. But here, it is nicely organized and easy to search. When you search for something, chances are good that you'll find what you're looking for right away. I don't think it is a very wise idea to sacrifice that degree of organization. If you've used the search function and looked for certain videos and got them quickly, you may be taking for granted that "speed" in being able to find what you're looking for. I would attribute that to the rules which have been established for the videos on this site. Many of the other reasons have already been stated so I don't feel I need to go into them and as always, if you're looking for videos in other languages, I'm sure there are other sites which you can visit.

I am noticing the fact that he hasn't replied to these posts yet. This thread failed the moment it was thought of. The majority of us on CR can speak, understand, type and read English relatively well enough for us to browse the site for whatever the reason we come here for. Take into consideration that Shinji has a bandwidth limit and has already imposed measures to limit it so that not all of us have to become supporters to watch the great media this site has to offer.

As many of you have already pointed out that english subs just make everything easier for everyone. The Mods (who are great) don't have time to be re-labeling everything that comes into CR. By restricting the Media content to the english language, the majority of us at CR are relatively happy. There are those who may complain but if they can complain in english, then why not just stick with the english content?

One last thing, if you want media in RAW or in another langauge then get it yourself. There are multiple ways to access these things. (Torrent, IRC, Google, DDL) So stop complaining and be happy that we have a site like CR in the first place.

I suggest we lock this thread and keep it as a reference for those in the future who are thinking about this lol.

I say leave it up for another day or two to get the point across. Obviously it's a touchy subject since half of the media moderators decided to comment on it.

Plus I'd love to see some of the people complaining coming back to the thread to respond, especially since the user used the word 'boycott' in the title.

Okay I think we've gotten the main points across though. No need to repeat with information/opinions that has already been stated.

Does CR have a fansub team?

I suggest it should come with a group to fansub the videos. Uploaders who have the latest raws or those hard to get Asian videos can upload them to CR fansub team to complete the work. Uploaders may also submit english .srt file for media mod to process them.

Since many external english fansub group doesnt like their videos to be broadcasted on video sites. Why not CR have a fansub team to do it for the rest of the community than debating on whether of having other language sub outside English.

i think its good that they're removing videos that doesn't have subs. i get so mad when i really want to watch something and find out its only in chinese subs or no subs at all.

i'm not sure i wanted to boycoot but some of the vids are very rare videos where u cant even find 'em at youtube or any other site. so it would be lucky or an advantage for CR to have the vids.
