You fucked up, cool off for a bit, and you can come back (most bans are no longer 2 hours anyway), however, if you are a repeat offender, have a nice life.

B. Some Shit About Releases

Whenever we want, or whenever it is truly ready.

2. Are you guys going to fansub (insert crappy animu here) ??!?!?!
No, we do whatever the fuck we want.

3. You haven’t released show ABC in so long! Have you dropped the project?
If it doesn’t say it’s dropped (under the “Dropped” section), it’s not dropped.

4. I am interested in fansubbing xx DVD into ___ language for my fansub group. Can you give us your DVD source?
Buy the DVDs and/or BDs, or pirate them (I’m not the morality police).

5. I am interested in fansubbing (insert crappy animu here) into ___ language for my fansub group. Can you give us your RAW source?
Google it.

6. I am interested in fansubbing (insert crappy animu here)into ___ language for my fansub group. Can we use your subs?
It’s all softsubbed, no one is stopping you, feel free to do so.

7. Can I upload your releases to streaming sites (such as Youtube, Veoh, etc)?
Who cares? But do it at your own risk.

8. Can I submit your releases/torrents to other listing sites (such as TokyoTosho, NyaaTorrents, BakaBT)?
TokyoTosho = No. Already using it
NyaaTorrents = No, it’s dead ;_;7
BakaBT = Only if a project is marked “Completed” and patches and v2′s are present in the batch, contact Eternal_Blizzard for details.
Other sites: We ain’t stopping you.

C. Leeching

1. How do I download your files?
Our releases are currently available on bittorrent (BT), XDCC, or DDL links that we provide, if you find any of our releases on other file sharing sites, please help seed them.
2. Can you reseed xx torrent?
If you ask nicely.

4. Playback issues/Technical
1. Why are the subtitles not showing up on the softsubs (mkv)?
Make sure you have the latest Avisynth installed and are using Media Player Classic (mpc) with xy-vsfilter as your subtitle renderer.

2. What do you recommend for file playback?
Media Player Classic-Home Cinema (mpc-hc), madVR+xy-subfilter, or just MPC-HC+xy-vsfilter if your comp isn’t up to snuff. DON’T USE CCCP OR ANY OTHER BULLSHIT CODEC PACK, and NO FUCKING VLC. On anything that isn’t Windows, mpv. LAV filters are built into mpc-hc.

Known issues:
-Uninstalling all of your playback components and then installing only the recommended components solves most problems.

3. AVI/XviD and MKV/h264 (or x264)? What, how, WTF?
-AVI/XviD releases are intended for people with shitty computers (we don’t release in XviD, this isn’t 2004)
-h264 releases have about 33% better compression than XviD, thus producing better quality videos. However, h264 playback requires more processing power than XviD.
-Our MKV releases are fully softsubbed with either no-frills typesetting (because Eternal_Blizzard is a talentless hack), and fancy typesetting as well.

4. Will you release (insert crappy animu here) in AVI/XviD format?
Heck NO! But you can re-encode them for your own use.

5. Will you encode in 10-bit?
Of Coursh.
