FKMTkrazy Needs Your Help!

Okay, after waiting around for a while for people to get things done to no success, I've decided that it's time we get some more help to get this group back on its feet. We're okay for Typesetters as far as I can tell, but since cleaning is such a taxing job I've decided that we should get as many cleaners as possible. No longer will we be having a single cleaner for each series, it's clear to me now that there is a much higher need for cleaners than any of the other two jobs. I plan to get as many people as possible to clean, so we can have multiple chapters of each series being worked on at once. Since cleaning does take a lot of time and effort, I think that's for the best.

Now, this is not to say that we'll be taking just anyone who says they want to help out cleaning. I'm afraid you'll have to prove it to me by cleaning the next chapter of Akagi. To help you, I have included with the chapter a few tips that I've gathered over the years. The link to the chapter is at the end of this post. It's quite a lot of text, but I've included some images and even an example to give you an idea of what I need you to do. Try and do your best, so long as you put in a good amount of effort I'm willing to put you on the team.

Also, because of this boom of cleaners, we MAY need a few more typesetters to compensate. I'm not sure, but if cleaning seems too daunting to you you can try your hand at typesetting. I've included some fonts and the script in the rar. The link to that is at the end of the post, as well.

So yeah, sorry for the month-long absence, I don't really have a good excuse or anything, I just took some time off. While all of you are working I'll be cranking out some translations so we can get back to it with a bang. On a similar note, I've closed the donations box for now. It's probably unrelated to the drop in releases, but it did signal the start of the fall for us, so we may as well just get rid of it altogether. If enough people want it back up later, I'll reinstate it.

Oh, and should we try for a Mahjong Day this Saturday? I think we should try for a Mahjong Day this saturday.

  2. If the donation box would encourage faster releases, I would like it back.

    1. Clearly it didn't... just saying. Hopefully some people apply to help out.

    2. Maybe... it is possible that it was a really poorly timed donation box, and the group would have died had the donation box not been there. We only have one statistical point to work with.

    1. Considering the silence... Did you guys get any applications?

    2. I sent in apps for both jobs several weeks ago, minus one page for the cleaning that I felt would be better left to someone with more cleaning experience, although I might do it anyway now to send him another email since I haven't received any responses yet! I'm a little worried to be honest, so if you see this, I sincerely hope you're okay!

    3. I sent mine weeks ago as well and got no response.

  5. Just a heads up, Sonic, if you see this. My application is still nearly finished (although it hasn't progressed much since last week), but over the course of this week I've been looking for a job, and it hasn't left me with much free time to do serious work on redrawing what I have left to redraw.

    If you haven't received any competent applications yet, then I'll do what I can to finish what I need to, but if there's someone who did a decent job cleaning, don't wait for me.

    2. They may feel embarrassed about the dogs/cats/fishes/ducks.

  11. Every Golden Age will end, just as every Kingdom will eventually crumble.
    This is but a small pebble in mankind's effort to read asian books about the art of Gambling.

    Your efforts and courage thus far shall not go unnoticed. Your noble cause has brought me dozen's of hours of enjoyment and for that i'd like to express my deepest grattitude.

    Lest we part ways for now, may your future journey be a joyous one!
