I Hate FO Fansubs AGAIN!!!
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.
