This is kind of an open-ended post. As the encoder, I have two questions which I would like to ask the people who are following us.
1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of hardsubs and softsubs? I know most of the technical advantages and disadvantages myself, but I would like to see what other people think in terms of "non-technical" advantages and disadvantages. (If there are technical advantages that I don't know about, feel free to tell me as well.)
2. As a group, Licca Fansubs tends to frown upon using softsubs for our releases. How does that change your perception of the group in general and your perception of our releases?
Please answer the questions as comments to this post. Please be honest about your opinions; there is no need to sugarcoat criticism here. However, please do not attack other people who are commenting on their opinions (basically, only attack me, not your fellow commenters).
Thank you in advance!
