Vote for the 1st Chinese Series of the Month -February/March

Post by animetama » Feb 2nd, '05, 19:04

Ni Hao!

Welcome to the first Chinese Series of the Month (CSoTM) Poll.

As the name implies, the CSoTM is dedicated to seeding completed Chinese drama series—be they from Mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan—with ENGLISH subs.
This is an important stipulation and it must be understood from the outset.
Repeat : CSoTM is for Chinese drama series with ENGLISH subs only.
There will be no CSoTM seeding of Chinese drama series without ENGLISH subs, period.

The CSOTM will be monthly for short series with an extension for longer series.

For the what, why, and how’s of a SoTM, please see this thread by puccakiss79:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5810

Please note: to qualify for voting privileges, you must have at least 10 posts.
This is to prevent users from creating multiple new accounts for the sole purpose of padding the vote count.
More info can be found at this thread:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5510

And be forewarned : There are definite ways to detect cheaters, so don’t even think about cheating to get your desired drama to win. Confirmed cheaters will be dealt with in a stern but judicious manner. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

For this first CSoTM, voting will close on the 13th February, 2005.
Seeding for the winning series will then begin on the 14th February, 2005 and ends 31st March, 2005.

A great big thank you to all the volunteer seeders, without you this would not be possible. :wub:
If any seeder cannot help seed this month, please PM either Kai Lien or myself to let us know ASAP. Thanks again!



Ok, so now for the fun part.
Without further ado, we present the candidates to the very first CSoTM:

name in violet = seeder has an incomplete series

Candidate nominations for the next CSOTM should be posted in this thread, but remember that nominations should be for completed series, and the completed series should hopefully have declared volunteers. (It’s pointless to vote for a series if there are no seeders willing to seed if and when it wins.)

Completed list of Chinese dramas can be found here:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8265

Have fun voting, play fair, and let's make our first CSoTM a successful one!

Cheers,
Kai Lien & Tama

A big thank you and hug to BT-Slut :wub: for the editorial of this post.

ahh.. good point xiaryx,


I've spoken to Jem and if one of his series win and its hosted over at his tracker, we all go there to seed.
If it's a HK series from Jem that was uploaded here, we either use the torrents thats already upload (if it's not messy) or we can make batch torrents of 5 episodes each and seed from that.
For the more recent series uploaded here in D-addicts, the torrents should still be ok to use, if not, I will make new torrents in batches of 5 episodes each.

cheers.

Woohoo! I was the first to vote for "Lavender". I saw that it was one of the only ones out of the list that got such high ratings. (I've already seen MG)

Hope Duke of Mt Deer wins, since it will be VERY hard to get if it doesnt win. It have 40 eps and currently 0 seeds on all of the eps, this will be perfect since the period of this CSOTM will be one and a half month long. But looks like it is unlikely :glare:

Will the next CSOTM be one and a half month long? or just this one as an exception?

Awesome; a Chinese series of the month, w00t! :D

Only ones I recognize from that list are MG1 and Duke; already seen MG1 and was not impressed with the small bit of Duke that I've seen. So since Lavender seems to be the darling here, I'll go for it 8)

Yeah! Looking forward to helping seed a CSotM!

I'd like to suggest that new torrents with d-addicts tracker be generated and used for any series that originated from
btchina trackers. Since I was involved with obtaining both "The Champion" and "My Mighty In-Laws" I can tell you
it was a real pain for many downloaders to reliably connect to btchina trackers. So I think you'll agree that creating
new torrents would be the smart thing to do in this case.

Hmm... Methinks I'd better get ep 2's 700 meg version of Lavender up soon! It was on my drive that got torched, but I can have it reripped and corrected this week.
I am not obsessed. I am just very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very focussed...

Glad to see the cdramas represented with the serires of the month now. :-)

I'm voting MG for now since I always see people begging for reseeds of it, and I'm a bit curious about all the fuss over it. But ultimately I won't mind any of these winning since I've not seen any of them. :P

Thanks to the organizers and seeders for getting this up and running.

But only 2 people voted for it :cry:

Me too. I want duke to win!

The series that wins will be seeded for a month and a half. That's a pretty long time! Perfect for having a longer series like Duke of Mountain Deer :-) It needs seeders badly...after all isn't that the purpose of a csotm? :P

FYI, Meteor Garden is being well seeded at Jem's site.

Vote for Meteor Garden!

Post by Yukino Miyazawa » Feb 4th, '05, 03:30

I simply loved Meteor Garden. It is a must-see and should be voted for. Jay Chou or Zhou, however his name is spelled (because it varies from site to site), is just adorable with Jerry Yan. I personally loved Dao Ming Su and Hazu Lei (If I remember their names correctly), and Shan Cai (spelled right?) was a good character. It got me hooked and kept me going for Mars, which Barbie Xu (Shan Cai) and Jay Zhou (Hazu Lei) play Kira and Rei. Vote for them!

I think you got mixed up with Jay Chou, the taiwanese singer. The one who plays as Lei and Ling in MG and Mars respectively is Vic Zhou :P

I hope that it'll win some other time.. I just wonder when if it only has 3 votes now :cry:

Sorry guys but Meteor Garden... I really wouldn't want to see it, this one time I downloaded Meteor Garden II and it really sucked. I wanted to watch it cuz I read that it was based on the anime Hana Yori Dango, which is a pretty old anime, but I have it and I love it :lol But that drama seemed to be far away as successful as the anime.

Meteor Garden 2 did suck a big lemon :cry:
If you liked HYD, you should give Meteor Garden 1 a try.
The script was pretty faithful to the manga and even thought the acting was horrendous (because F4 were newbie actors), MG 1 was definitely fun (for me anyway)!

Having said that, I do hope people realize that the seeding period this time is for 6 weeks, so I think it’s a great opportunity for everyone to download Duke of Mountain Deer.

BTW, don’t forget to nominate your favourites for the next CSoTM poll.

Cheers.

the acting was really terrible in MG1. However, i'm also a big fan of HYD.. maybe that's why I put up with it. And I did enjoy it. Though I think San-chai's personality is a little bit different from Tsukushi.

I didn't like MG2 at all. I watched it (before mg1, i think. :unsure: . ) because I didn't want hyd to end.. or at least, see the them adopt the ending from the manga.

I would rather pick an story about ancient times and legends for a first CSOM but "Duke" which is the only one of the genre listed here seems not to be that good according to critics I've read ... :cry: since I've finished MG1 which was awesome, I guess I'll go for Lavender!! :crazy:

A year has 12 months, so do we get to choose 12 series of the month then? Maybe bring up the Monkey King again, since there are already a few, including me, who'd like to have it, but currently there are no seeders.

Currently there's only one person who has the whole series. Maybe if there's another seeder we can include it to the poll. :-)

*Sigh* If we only lived in Singapore...

Hmmm...how bad can it be if we actually have 3 seeders. What review were you reading? It has an all-star cast...

Only one person who has the whole serie?
Too bad about the Monkey King, I guess. Must wait a little longer then. Well, I'm still young and can wait. :)

If we all move to singapore we don't need torrents anymore, only lots of cd/dvd writers. :)

MG1 can NOT be the first CSoTM! It simply cannot. It's such crap. It'll drive so many potential viewers of Chinese drama away if their first exposure is MG1 and the moronic Foolish-4.

Please vote for Lavender! :D Add fuel! Pour gasoline!

MG1 needs to be banished into non-existence.

Exactly what I was thinking when I saw that Meteor Garden was right behind Lavendar.
I really want to see Lavendar... especially now that so many people have said it's such a great drama. :D I hope it wins.

Err.. ah hmm!

/me kicks BT!

Excuse moi but MG 1 was my first Chinese Drama and I loved it.. F4 were newbies at acting so it's entirely understandable that their acting sucks, however, they've got their oh-so shuai exterior :wub: who cares for anything else :lol

Seriously tho, MG 1 made me search for more Cdrama and I've been loving it ever since.
MG1 isn't critically acclaimed and it won't win any acting prizes but it was fun and entertaining and I'm one happy chick if I can get at least that much out of any series.. :P

I haven't seen Meteor Garden I, and I've heard good things about it. So I voted for that.

*kidnaps BT-Slut and puts her in a sound proof room* :roll

MG1 (and 2, which I didn't find necessarily bad, just painful) was the first 'fluke' for me when it came to deviating from my normal preference for ancient Chinese series. My very first opinion when seeing some commercials for it was that it's lame/boring, but after a friend lent it to me, I totally got sucked in. Definitely has its moments and one very cool fella :P Looking back on it now, MG's quite a silly series (though certainly not as lame as some :crazy:) compared to my new fav modern series :wub: but if not for F4 back then...I wouldn't know about this one now.

But I'm still hoping Lavender'll win, since I have yet to experience it. But whichever wins will be exciting 8)

I have seen all of these except for The Champion.

Meteor Garden was by far the best u__u; but of course i'm a girl so eh...i'm a bit biased in that area.

Lavender does not live up to its hype. It has a predictable ending and very predictable characters, not that i did not enjoy it greatly. XD The theme songs were very good and the actors/actresses were very pretty...not that they could act.

Duke of Mt. Deer is VERY entertaining but hard to sub...i dont' know how non-chinese speaking people will truly get the greatness of this series. Anyways, Meteor Garden forever. XD
