I don’t know how many people have noticed, but in the LN/WN community doesn’t, for the most part, seem to appreciate all of the work editors do. Sure, TLs actually translate the works from another language to English, but have you guys noticed certain projects where there is no editor? Exactly, people don’t want to read them. Why? Because it doesn’t flow, has sentences that are awkward, and most of all, shit ton of errors. What an editor does is, in my opinion, still important.
How many of you guys read Re:Monster and know what’s going on with White Samurai and the community? If you don’t know, here is the basic facts. The community is toxic and White Samurai doesn’t want to TL and edit Re:Monster anymore. Why? Because there is people that are ungrateful for the work he chooses to do. This is the same with editing.
I’m not talking to those that say “Thanks for the chapter”; I’m talking to those that only thank the translators. You guys make editing feel ungrateful. Even more so, for those that asked, I even made a Twitter to inform you guys about the status of chapters being TLed. Even then, some people came and were ungrateful.
Yes, in case you haven’t caught on now, this is a rant. I’m also asking people to think about all the people that are working and the FACT that they are working VOLUNTARILY. In other words, I ain’t getting paid to edit and deal with the shit people say in the comment.
Overall, this is about editors in general. So people, go out and thank editors in some of the other projects that you read. Make them actually feel like they are appreciated and actually want to work.
If you guys want to see a work without editing,
Note: This isn’t what the TLs I work with give me. They’re much nicer.
PS: If anyone asks for the status of a chapter in a comment, I’m going to rain holy fire and make sure their shame is exposed. Why? CAUSE I made a twitter account for that.
PPS: IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO READ, THEN DON’T COMMENT. God some people love to argue without reading……………
PPPS: The amount of people who don’t understand that I AIN’T ASKING FOR PERSONAL THANKS is TOO DAMN HIGH (high five if you get the reference)
