    Re: Spinning down my anime posting

    It's hard to come up with the words to express how truly grateful I am to you over the many years of your service. I lived in a very rural part in USA and my internet speeds on the best days was no more than .74mb/s so the only thing I could do was download fan subs to get decent quality videos. Streaming was a non-option, having to wait 1-2 minutes for 30 second pieces of pixelated shit. I had to work my ass off to find the anime I wanted to watch as I can't stand bit torrents (security reasons above all else). I hopped from place to place, DA anime & AnimeBreaker are some notable places before finding Anime-Sharing! Here I found a great community, though large and diverse it may be, I sadly chose to opt out and just download the anime I wanted to watch as it was literally the only highlight of my life.

    There you were, offering your time to help distribute fan subs in a very efficient forum. Every re-up request fulfilled, questions answered, suggestions noted, and complements taken, you was there! Through the filesharing 'great depression' (megaupload debacle), were many filehost simply dumped their user's data to avoid lawsuits and complications, there you were doubling if not quadrupling your efforts to rebuild. Though time beats us all down, I will always remember how I got though a dark spot in my life due to your efforts here and for that I sincerely offer thanks to you!

    corocoro,
    Thanks so much for all the times you've been there to re-up a missing episode or a corrupted rar file. Always there, and judging by all the accolades above, always willing to help someone out with a tip or a bit knowledge whenever someone asked. Pretty selfless acts on your part and I heartily commend you for it.
    I rediscovered anime in the early nineties and belonged to a club, which or course introduced me to many who were passionate and outspoken about their love-affair for the art-form. Some were know-it-alls and "hoarders" of fan subs, and the political one-upsmanship between clubs was so thick you could cut it with a knife! Good times, true ... but crazy and counter productive at best.
    But then there were those guys who loved it so much, they were almost hell bent to share it with anyone who was interested. Those were the guys I admired. I consider you to be the modern day equivalent of those great guys from yesteryear.
    Of course the early 2K's saw the anime boom, then bust. I drifted off for a bit when fast and furious day of massive releases of commercial anime was thrust upon fandom; it was the best of times and the worst. Commercial subs (and ...urk ... dubs) were the order of the day: product seemed to have won out over art.
    Still ... thank God for the subtitling community ... they never left the scene ... even when threatened the companies they supported. Anyone remember the J.A.I.L.E.D. Initiative put forth by VIZ, ADV, CPM and the like?
    A lot of those big companies went out of business ... and the fan-subbers kept plugging along, because for the most part, they do it out of love, NOT product.
    Which brings me back to you corocoro ... thanks for sharing all the goodies over the year, and in doing so, keeping us in touch with our humble, yet mighty origins. An act of selflessness & Heart in my book.
    Your watch is over ... thanks for the shared memories.

    Without your hard work, I would not have come to ASF. Thank you, corocoro.
    We should thank for the achievement that you extended anime to the world.

    corocoro-

    Thanks for your professional efforts. I just noticed this post, which kind of ironically makes the point. I remember the days of mega and rapidshare, things are much different now. File services now are just crap. I have nothing but understanding for your feelings. Best of luck on your future endeavors. chrstphr.
