I can do the proof reading and quality check part.

I wouldn't mind distributing it via BT, but only when I'm in the states with 10mb connection. Which means during June - August I won't be able to help you guys uploading since I will be away in South Africa.

Well, I'll do something, probably translation, but I can also do timing/encoding, if someone tells me how.

Oh, and Suedschleife, are you sure this show is also gonna be on the videothek? Just doublechecking.

Uh, ehm, I guess I could help out with coordination but then I'd require everybody to hang out on IRC.
I'd prolly need a little kickstart aswell, as I've never been involved in subtitling projects before.

just watching the first episode, and I?m shocked to say that I quite like it...
I thought it was gonna be crap like dmotor. So seeing as this is a show I am actually willing to watch, I?d be happy to help with something like proofreading or something if you still need someone...

cheers

We can never have enough translators tbh, some will probably need a break at one point or the initial enthusiasm wears off. Segment 5 is still available btw.

I don't know if TechZ needs any help proof reading, he never complains :D. Do you Z?

It's great to see so many people volunteering, thank you. We probably have enough people for klanky (or anyone else interested) to try out timing or some other positions, so I become replaceable :cry:.

I don't really have any idea of what I'm doing, since you involved me into the project. You are the project leader and coordinating, not me. :p

My English isn't up to native standards, but I can help out with whatever that's needed.

I?ll do whatever... I?d say my english and german are both pretty decent. Only problem is I have loads to do with formula student at the moment, so I can?t put massive amounts of time into much else. I?d be glad to do anything small though...

If you need someone to do timing I can do it...

I used to do fansub timing for TV-Nihon on their zoids projects.

I'm not sure how much help I'd be here, as I speak very limited German, but my English skills and proof-reading skills are high (It's part of my job!), so I can pick up English grammatical mistakes (Maybe proof-reading or QA?)

Let me know if you want/need a hand with this bit.

You could help with the QA for the compilation torrent we will release once Season 1 is over.

edit: Z earned a vacation, so it'd be great if you insane and/or MadCow809 could do the proof reading this week and possibly next.
