Ok, its the year 2015 and after doing a lot of lurking around. I noticed a few issues. (Sorry if this topic is in the wrong place.)
There is so many topics that haven't been touched in years that are pinned (maybe you guys could use an archive forum). A lot of mods on the forum haven't visited the site at least 5 years or more. I'm assuming those people grew out of liking Idols or something happened to them (which is fine but abandoning your duty without any memo isn't since no one was there to replace you). We very rarely get any subbed dvd/tv content anymore for H!P content. I see plenty of PV uploaded though, but H!P subs their music now so there is less of a reason to pirate their music unless for a more clean translation. The search feature for the torrents could be much better. Anyways, there are more issues I would like to mention but this is more me ranting to begin with and looking for an understanding.
My point is, what is going on? Any active mods or admins can give us a heads up why there is a growing number of inconsistencies? Feels like the only time I see a mod post is when they are laying the hammer down and not actually being a part of the community in the H!P fanbase (as far as I know). But anyways, will there be any improvements to this site or should I just accept that this only a site for talking about H!P and torrenting old H!P content due to the dying fandom that the vets use to have here?
And what could us normal members do to help these multiple issues or help make this site cleaner? Well, I guess we could learn Japanese but I personally don't have any good sources or time for that.
One last thing, not sure if I'm sounding too entitled since I haven't done anything for this site other than help seed but feels a bit unfair these days. Feels like this site is more about AKB and other idol groups than about H!P due to more resources being poured in the former. The raw content is provided for H!O but none of its being subbed, I think the sleep prank was one of the last major things subbed lol ( which is super great but why was that subbed this time around?). It would be great if the Alo Hello 5, 6 and hopefully 7 get subbed.
Anyone have opinions on this?
