Hey Jack, you might have heard from me and what I do around this fandom already. And I’m pretty sure you are very well aware of what the situation is.
However I don’t think you are aware of the solution. I’m not gonna state it entirely here again. If you are really interested you could find enough about it on my blog.
Many of my friends have tried to reach out for you, in my name aswell since they all so badly want to see this problem fixed. And I’m working on it. I’m working very hard. But I can’t do it alone. I can’t do it unless you let me really help. Right now I’m just making caption files in Premiere Pro and uploading them in the hope that fans will approve.
Sadly this isn’t the case.
I ask of you: Please take a look at your own captions. Enable them on your own videos for once. You will see that almost every captionbox is either
- too long
- Has own commentary
- Selfpromotion in it
- people putting words in your mouth
And many other examples.
Jack please, I don’t ask much of you. Just 5 minutes of the time you already barely have. But after 6 long months of trying to grasp a bit of your attention on this problem. I’m tired, I’m tired of working so hard without any progress or validation that I’m doing the right thing or that I’m on the right path..
I love this fandom with all my heart and I wish I could help out in a better way..
I have a lot of information on this subject and I would love to educate people on it. Sadly I’ve gotten so much hate that I stopped bothering to teach people how it works or how ableist it is to mess with captions.
I know you stand against bad captions. But again,
Please. Let me help.
It sucks to know how to help but being unable to.
