I Hate FO Fansubs AGAIN!!!

February 2, 2009 at 2:20 pm 17 comments

UPDATE: Apparently, many people are very sensitive about FOPSS.  For the record, I’m just expressing an opinion. I wrote this article back in February, when there were a lot of shifts going on within FOPSS. Times have changed. I use Ramen Soup Subs exclusively, and I no longer hate nor hold grudges against FOPSS. 

ZOMG!!! Just when I regained my love for the FO Fansub team, now known as Family Outing Project Subbing Squad (FOPSS), they disappoint me YET AGAIN.

First you have to sign up on their forum.
That’s reasonable enough. They want loyalty, support, and a little recognition for all their hard work.

But on their forum, in order to do download the hardsubs, you have to post 30 posts. Oh yeah, with each post, you have to have at least 20 words, otherwise it’s doesn’t count, and the forum won’t even let you post it.

Gah! WTF! Even though it’s a pain in the ass, that’s reasonable enough too. They want loyalty, support, and a little recognition for all their hard work.

After finally busting my butt to post 30 posts on their dumbass forum yesterday, (which took FOREVER and a day), I finally gained access to their hardsubs.

I only managed to download 2 episodes, and not even consecutive ones! I would have downloaded much more, but just those 2 episodes took freaking 3 hours.

I go to the forum with the intent to download more episodes, and surprise! There’s ANOTHER new caveat. Now, instead of 30 posts, you have to post 50 posts! Gah!!! So like a compliant mad fiend, I posted another 20 posts.

Now I can download right?

Yet ANOTHER exception. Apparently, some dumbass took FOPSS episodes 1-3 and put it on youtube!!! Because of this, FOPSS disabled all of their download links. Which means 1) there’s no more downloading, and 2) I posted 50 posts for no reason. I wish I found this out before I busted my butt writing 50 posts. Furthermore, FOPSS has threatened that if this doufus does not take down these videos, they will never sub again!

Listen, I know what that bitchass dumbass doufus did was wrong. But FOPSS is WAY too anal. Keep your download links open and stop subbing after I’ve finished downloading Brian and Kim Dong Won‘s episodes, mkay??? No one’s even waiting for your subs anyways because Ramen Soup Subs is 10000lksajflsjdflk;sjdfklsjdlfkajsl;fjksa times faster AND better.

Isn’t it ironic? FOPSS distrusts their viewers and rules over them like a tyrant, and rules (which were gay to begin with) get broken, etc etc. But Ramen Soup Subs, who has a registration-free forum, TRUSTS their viewers, and all this bad stuff never happens.

    Threy’re like flip flops, otherwise known as thongs in australia..
    they must feel very unappreciated, but being sneaky and unfair with the rules makes everyone sneaky and unfair… right?

  • 2. miaow miaow  |  February 3, 2009 at 1:40 am

    they should just stop freeting over the small things and just concentrate on subbing. i mean they’re not even fast to begin with and they still bother about all this. if they treat people nicely like ehem (ramen soup subs) then nothing will happen and then maybe they’ll get sympathy instead of pissed off people all the time. they might ban me from their forum now hahaha but i dont care cant even be bothered to get 50 posts now. i stopped at 5 btw. hahahaha

    I hate it when people get like that. What ever happened to doing something for others for the joy of… doing something for others? Recognition and respect is great, but punishing EVERYONE for a few people’s mistakes is unnecessary.

    When you demand too much, this will happen: people will get frustrated enough to not even bother with you anymore. There IS a line.

  • 4. suusse  |  February 4, 2009 at 12:31 pm


    i sooo agree with you!!! i did it too, i mean, i posted 30 posts and then i saw i cant get in anymore, becoz i had to post 20 more for stupid old eps! OMG really it took me sooo long to post those 30 posts…….

    RAMEN SOUP SUBS JJJANG!!! love them! theyr fast, theyr reliable and PPL over there r trustworthy.

    I so agree with this. I extremely hate FO. I gave up on them last december because I got totally irritated with the quota and never had the chance to join. They are so inconsiderate and paranoid. On the other hand, I’m really thankful with Ramen Soup, unlike FO Crapness.

    Same thing happened with me but with Soshisubs and I found out that the file wasn’t compatible with my laptop =__=;;;

  • 7. ciaodahling  |  February 14, 2009 at 1:52 pm



    The file may not be compatible with your labtop because you may not have the appropriate codecs. Search “free codec download”, and then download some codecs, and usually after that, the video is compatible and can play. It’s because when you sub, you work off of different programs that require extra codecs, so…maybe that’ll help!

    wow really?? we need to go through all that trouble just to download their subs?? damn… that’s such a bummer. i agree with all of you. it’s so paranoid. couldn’t it just be like, as long as you credit us, it’s fine or watev??

    if not, they should just set up their own account over at youtube. ahem *I NEED THE OLD EPIs* i’ve already watched the latest episodes of FO (ramen khamsahamnida~~^^) so all i need to get my hands on now, are those old epis which ramen don’t have… like epi 7 with GD?

    gosh i was just abt to head on over to FOPSS and get em, but thanks for this little blurby heads up. it’s like they’re keeping their vids in a steel vault with passwords and heat and motion alarm with huge CIA and FBI dudes, a SWAT team and guard dogs protecting it. sheesh!! what happened to “sharing is caring” and all that effin crap.

    anyway, thanks^^ i wonder if ramen’ll sub epi 7 the first part of GD’S FO… maybe they take requests?? can i request them to sub it?? haha^^

  • 9. naninoona  |  April 24, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    ahem, oh! sorry for randomly butting in… i know it’s been long ago since you posted this. haha^^

  • 11. reeeeeeeechard  |  May 20, 2009 at 7:19 am

    stuff FOPSS anyone want eps 1-7? i have them all, downloaded before they created a forum and they still used wordpress.

  • 12. reeeeeeeechard  |  May 20, 2009 at 7:20 am

    hope FOPSS gets pissed off at this. NERHHHHH =P!

  • 13. bobacha  |  June 2, 2009 at 3:07 am

    hi i got to your page after googling “FOPSS ramen soup” because I wanted to see what others think about these 2 groups.. Agreed that Ramen Soup subs is amazing. I never bothered to join the new FOPSS forum, but I’ve been checking out their youtube channel.. I really don’t understand why they’re releasing episodes that have been done by ramensoup… isn’t it a waste of their time?

  • 14. kettua  |  June 21, 2009 at 11:32 am

    Fansubs are not right, it’s privilege. What are YOU doing for the team? Are you translating? Timing? No. You are just one of those damn leechers who wants everything right now, without hassle and whatnot. Translators of FOPSS (and other groups) don’t have to translate anything. They do it on their free time, they do it for free. They don’t have problems understanding the shows. You should appreciate you get something for free in the first place. And do fansub groups have schedule, that subs have to be out within certain period of time? No. So you spend one day spamming the forum to get an access to download section, and you call it a lot of work. Try working one k-variety show episode, and let’s see how long it takes. I highly doubt you’d get it done in a day or two.

    So stop complaining bitch and go learn the language yourself so that you don’t need the subs.

    I think that it’s quite annoying when you have to post some amount comments on the forum to get the softsub/hardsub, I think that the internet is a free world, let’s share the joy, I am very thankful for ramen soup subs for their hardwork in FO’s translation, i’m an indonesian and I got a lot of fun when watching FO and I’m not alone there’s alot of indonesian who waiting for the subtitle’s release every week, hamsa hamida yorobun =D [ Is it right? hehehe ]

    It’s been so long, and I don’t know if u r still reading this, but I am up to your offer!! XD

  • 17. Amel  |  November 7, 2009 at 7:36 am

    heyys, LOL! If you ever knew the reason why FOPSS took off the priviledges, you might think twice about this. But in any case…Just so that you know, no one in the Staffs was in support of these decisions. I would just like to clarify this with everyone.

    And yeah, just a stupid thorn out of the roses which made a hooha out of everything…FOPSS will be declared relatively dead because a new phenomenon is approaching this coming December. =D

    Just so you knew, you could have contacted the Staffs during that period to get the download links…we would have been delighted to pass them to ya.
