Transcripts Part 2
I'd like to take this opportunity to move away from the touchy subject of translation and localization and get back to stuff that will affect when you get your patch, such as transcripts.
I've added a new poll on the right. Transcripts are a pretty much straightforward issue, I want to know when to release them. We'll release the transcript at a certain time depending on your votes (and when it's done, obviously). Keep in mind that doing it before or with the patch will in fact delay the patch.
The other post on transcripts has a bit of valuable information and insight on the matter, so feel free to check that out some posts below if you want to get a grasp on the 'schools of thought' if you will.
By the way, if you aren't one of the people giving a hard time about names, don't worry about the last post. We're still sane and we're handling this translation the same way as we did--still taking suggestions, still trying to make the best decisions, and view all perspectives before doing so. I apologize to those people who just want this translation to be over with (cough, me).
Oh and to make it clear, if the poll is not decisive (one option wins by a largely significant percentage) we probably will make a decision on our own. Polls are more or less "we want to make sure we're not totally messing up here so we'll ask the fans if they think we're making decisions based by some sort of logic", not "we do whatever you say". If you guys mostly agree on one thing then that means the other options PROBABLY aren't viable options, which is why we sometimes go along with polls. :\
