IsoParadigm Updates:

I've been behind on approving membership requests. I had ridiculously limited access to the internet while at home on winter vacation and last week (first week of the Spring semester), I was very busy with classes, clubs, etc. I am not ignoring anyone on purpose. Please bear with me while I try to catch up on requests.

Also, from now on, I'm rejecting membership requests placed by people who have not followed the directions listed on the age verification entry. Attempting to make things easier for new members (by giving them months to leave a comment at this entry) forces me to waste a lot of time on crosschecking comments/requests.

Takazawa Taeko projects should be out soon, after I've caught up on e-mails and sorted through everything that I missed during final exams/winter vacation (translations, edited pages, corrections, etc). ihearyourtears is back from her graduation trip, so Vassalord. should be out soon, as well.

Also, we really need some reliable proofreaders and quality checkers. I'm going to be busy (away from a computer) from 6 AM to 8 PM every day (for classes, extracurricular activities), and after that, I'll need to spend time studying, so I won't have time to "be anal" when it comes to proofreading/QCing.

If you're interested in helping, please send an e-mail to isoparadigm@gmail.com. The application test consists of the following:

1) Point out the spelling/grammar mistakes I made in this entry
2) Your e-mail. I will judge your grasp of the English language based on the way you "speak"
3) (Possibly) proofreading/QCing a new chapter that we're preparing for release

Thanks! ♥

Yeah, I know it's been a very long time since the last update. Unfortunately, pretty much everyone in our team is really busy, so parts/jobs get stalled.

Can't stand the delay between releases? You're free to work on our projects on your own. None of us care about other groups "stealing" our projects. Just don't take our scans/translations for your own releases.

[IsoP] Membership Status Update [Sep. 6th, 2007|03:02 am]

I've removed all members who did not leave an age statement here. You guys had five extra days because I was busy with classes (six upper division engineering/math courses D:).

Any members who were removed are welcome to join again after leaving an age statement and submitting an membership request.

Common mistakes:
1) Attempting to join the community without submitting an age statement here
2) Leaving an age statement but not requesting to join the community here
3) Submitting an age statement while logged out of LJ. I cannot approve your membership if you do not leave a comment while signed in to the LJ account you use to submit a membership request
4) Submitting an age statement in the wrong place. I will not approve your membership unless you leave the age statement here

[IsoP] Policy Changes [Jul. 30th, 2007|01:21 pm]

[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

All future posts (and possibly some older posts) to this community will be under f-lock. This means that you'll need to join the community to see new releases and any project/policy updates. Our distribution policies remain the same, though~

EDIT: Just friending the community won't allow you to see new posts. You'll have to join the community.

Also, membership will be moderated. I need to make sure that members of isoparadigm are at least 18 years of age (the age of majority in the USA, home of Livejournal headquarters).

Potential members:
To join, please leave a comment here with one of the following:
1) your birthdate
2) a statement that you are recognized as an adult in your state/country and that it is legal for you to view explicit drawings of men engaged in sexual activities

EDIT #2: When I say "statement," I don't mean an official letter. Just let me know that you are recognized as an adult in your state/country and that it's legal for you to view explicit drawings of men engaged in sexual activities.

After leaving the comment, please go here to join. ♥

Current members:
You are also required to leave a statement with one of the following:
1) your birthdate
2) a statement that you are recognized as an adult in your state/country and that it is legal for you to view explicit drawings of men engaged in sexual activities

I understand that not everyone has time to constantly check Livejournal for new fandom updates and that some people won't see this entry immediately because they don't have the community friended, so current members will have until August 30, 2007 (one month) to leave a comment with the required information. On September 1, 2007, any member who has not left a comment will be removed from the community.

Any members who have been removed from the community may join again if they leave a comment with the required information (found above). ♥

All comments are/will remain screened unless you leave them anonymously or request that they be unscreened.

aah, I've wanted to do this for a while and I would have saved myself from a lot of trouble if I had done it earlier, but~ =P

[IsoP] E-mails and Status of Projects [Jul. 5th, 2007|11:38 pm]

Important notice about IsoParadigm's e-mail account and the delay in responses.

Our group's e-mail account is often flooded with spam, so sometimes I'll miss a few non-spammy e-mails here and there. I finally had some free time to clean our e-mail account today and I noticed that I've missed at least five or six e-mails during the past few months. ^^;; I'm sorry! I'll try to respond to those as soon as possible. If you still have not received a response within a week from now, please feel free to send another e-mail.

In the future, please include "IsoParadigm" or "IsoP" somewhere in the e-mail subject line. I have a filter set up so that all e-mails including those words are automatically tagged to be read.

Project Status:

Quite a few people have asked about Koi Shiteru? and Sonde Sekai wa Happy Day. The first chapters of both titles are available at Smexy Bastards. IsoP is still working on subsequent parts. We have enough editors, but our translator is very busy (we love you, ah_chan! ♥). Would anyone be willing to help us out with translations? Our translator is working on both titles, which is a lot of work, so we'd greatly appreciate any help. Even help for just one chapter would be awesome. :D

The next part of Vassalord. is coming along nicely. The editor for that series is also really busy and she always tries to make the sound effects and background text look good, so please forgive our 3 month delay between chapters. It'll be worth the wait! XD Once chapter 2 is done, all that's left for volume 1 is a really cute extra chapter about how Johnny and Charlie first met. ♥

Also, thanks to a very generous person, we have a special surprise prepared for Vassalord. fans. ♥ Keep an eye out for it during the next few days! =)

Last note! Please do not bother any of the editors or translators about how "ridiculously slow" we release new chapters. Everyone is taking a double courseload at university, working at least one full time job (or two part time jobs in addition to university classes), or has important real life issues to take care of before focusing on fandom. We completely understand that waiting for new parts is frustrating, though, so we do try our best to get new parts out as fast as we can. It's not as if we're withholding finished scanlations just so that we can watch you guys squirm. =P
