Japanese SoTW Poll (7/24/2006) - Five Spies

Post by mizune » Jul 9th, '06, 17:16

Howdy, folks!
Since Ai no Uta seems fairly well seeded at this point, that's been replaced with a new entry in the poll as well...

I had the idea of making a TV special batch as a contender for a future "SoTW" (about 4-5 specials, since most seem to be close to 1 GB in size). What do you guys think about it? I'd hate to see those that have been subtitled slip away b/c they are too short alone as a contender... Check out the Seeders list for the ones I have found that have been subbed.. Not sure if there are any more at this point...

If you're willing to seed any of the series in the poll, please post a reply here or in the JSOTW: Looking For Volunteer Seeders thread or PM any one of the Geinou. There are still several series which don't have any volunteer seeders, so do volunteer for those! The more seeders we have, the more variety there will be in the future JSoTW polls. Also, please let us know when new series have been completed so it can be added to the list.

Many thanks goes out to those seeding the current JSoTW (Oishii Kankei). Thank you for your support! :salut:

In the now immortal words of thetenken........

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST. IF YOU DO NOT, YOU MAY BE LIABLE TO THETENKEN'S EXPRESSIONS OF DISPLEASURE.

Taking nominations for the next series of the week. Let me know what you want to add to the poll and I'll add it. From this point forward only series that have a volunteer seeder will be put up into the poll. People can nominate whatever they want, but the series won't become a poll option until there is a volunteer seeder...

PLEASE NOMINATE AND VOTE ONLY FOR THE DRAMAS OFF THE COMPLETED DRAMAS LIST FOUND IN THE JSOTW VOLUNTEER SEEDERS THREAD:
http://www.d-addicts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=23787
(06/14/2004: As of this date, the Series of the Week is now officially only Japanese dramas with English subtitles.)


The nominees are:

What is a series of the week? More Info Here
Since there are now a substantial number of torrents on this site, we have implemented a "Series of the Week," where we could dedicate most of the bandwidth to a particular series during that week. This helps in a couple of ways:

1. People will know what series are available and have seeds, rather than just waiting and hoping for them to be seeded at some later date.

2. For those seeders who have DVD burners and have already burnt their collections to DVD/CD, then with the series of the week they know which series can be pulled off of DVD to help seed, minimizing troublesome multiple DVD loading.

3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward those specific torrents, rather than having people request series across the board.

Remember, D-Addicts was started for the community, and being a part of the community means sharing. If you don't share, then everyone loses (refer to JEM's dropping of Cdramas), and a good thing open to all may become a private party.

We take no responsibility for deleting poll entries if there are no seeds. No complaints, as this is a community effort. If the community doesn't want to share, then oh well...

Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Go on, kiddies... explore the forum a bit... :)

I just volunteered to seed Five Spies and it's already up for JSOTW, figures. I guess I'll start making space for it on the hard drive hehe.

[Edit]
I'll seed episode one in case anyone wants to preview the series.

I can help seed 5 spies too. It wouldn't be a very fast seed, but I can let it run for a good amount of time.

I've had this show for quite sometime, and I've help reseed it several times, but I have never watched it. I guess I should get around to it one of these days, along with the other 50 some "around to it" drama filled DVDs. :whistling:

I'm really happy to (hopefully) be able to get Five Spies. What a combination. Rina Chinen :wub: and Shinohara who's always fun, and Kyoko Fukada when she was starting out :-) , and the other terrific young ladies, and such a cool plot. :D

Hehe, your welcome. I'm just surprised a bit since this is the first time a series I volunteered for looks like it may win.
I'm not sure how it works but I was wondering if you will be converting the series that wins into a batch torrent? I saw that it was done with some other series.
In the meantime I'll keep seeding episode one for people who want to check out the series. Not sure if it's a good idea to go ahead and start seeding the rest of the episodes already.

Someone else(Gir?) started seeding all of Five Spies already, so I decided to do so as well. Hopefully the people who download will stick around if it wins.

Well, you can only make a bath torrent if you've got all the files (which I don't ^_^;; )...
We normally only allow batches that have been approved by the original uploader, I don't think it'll be an issue for the SoTW.

Anyways, I'll look into it...

It's not a big deal, I was just curious

Episode one of Five Spies looks to be well seeded and the other episodes are getting there. Even if it doesn't win the vote, it has already won by default hehe. [Edit] I take that back, Seikei Bijin looks well seed too.[/Edit]

This is what stupid people do. I could have broken the 60 X 60 tie between a drama I have and a drama I haven't seen. But this is what stupid people do, I cast my vote for Family Values the clutch winner for 4th place. But that's the series I'd like to see the most.

Five Spies still winning. I have to remember to keep checking tommorow to see if it does prevail. It seems most of the early birds have completed their downloads. Just have to wait and see how many new leechers pop up after the poll ends.

Looks like the poll is over since it won't let me vote. Five Spies won I guess. Hmm, since we started seeding early there aren't alot of peers left hehe.
