I wonder why all the activity in this forum has stopped if the preliminaries of saimoe haven't started yet, or is it because the preliminaries haven't started yet?

All activity hasn't stopped. It's just that there won't be anything to post about until the preliminaries start.

There's still the extra nomination period, but it's not interesting to follow at all. Let's leave it to 2ch to nominate background characters then.

First preliminary is due July 5th. That's when the mass killing of innocent girls starts.

Yes, there shall be much wailing and gnashing of teeth once the preliminaries start...

Since we have nothing else to talk about, is anyone interested in rushing once those start, and have any time in mind? Templates is just a matter of cleaning out the old rush posts and putting in new ascii art as needed. Here's tod's old rush instructions.

But rushing probably annoys the hell out of the staff up at 2ch. What's the point to overload someone's server? It's like trolling, as in it's annoying.

Not for Saimoe it isn't. It's more like a tradition. One of the many things that makes it more flavorful than a simple poll.

Oh cool, didn't know the thread started already...

I bet Konata will be thrilled by the fact that she's in the same tournament as her idol Haruhi

Ah man, I was hoping Achakura Ryouko and Askura Ryouko can count as two different characters?

Why do get the feeling that Mio's title/nickname is gonna be "MOE MOE KYUN"

Btw, how did Kimikiss get into it this year? don't tell me it was via the "extra" episode?

Not very far. The name translator who's fluent in Japanese and English from Saimoe '07 and '08 has life to deal with, so we're making do with the few who are willing to help out, with a combination of JP and EN Wikipedia, Google, fandom, and sheer willpower.

Yeah, Asakura and Achakura are two different entries.

And God help you when you come across a character whose "name" has to take the form of a sentence. Where is this list in progress, anyway? If the OP linked to a wiki-style list, the hivemind would get through it eventually.

I second this request, I have a bit of free time and absolutely no Japanese skill to help with... but I do have Google! And that solves a lot of things.

Also, I recommend the Rikaichan plugin for Firefox for quick in-browser translating. You can hover over Japanese terms and it'll provide the English translation; it doesn't do sentences though, but its database for names is really ace. It helps for providing quick hints or tips in the right direction. Maybe it's useful. *shrug*

Yeah, it was. Only one character was pre-nominated (Kuryou), but thanks to fanatics like me who are going to be running around waving the Yuumi and Eriko banners for the next week or so, we've got a large portion of the cast in prelims now.

Well, we translated a few series and characters, scattered about the thread. I'll archive what we have so far:

I usually don't go on AS much, but the saimoe thread I made @ MAL a while back died within a matter of hours, so I might come here more often.

I translated a few of the ??? ones, if it helps -
Spoiler for just a few:

Three days after Umineko no Naku Koro ni airs? Hmm...

...and I still can't get a code after moving locations for the summer. No matter though, love will find a way.

Sometimes I can get a code, and sometimes I get the proxy error. Really annoying.
