I don't think the old group would want to quit--my point was that Random Q. Translator doesn't have any real incentive to come join you when you advertise for him. Now, if you're already friends with some other translator, then he might be willing to step in, but in that case their motivation is going to be different than any of those of a translator you advertised for.

I just don't think we're seeing eye to eye here. If you're a translator, why are you waiting several days for a fansub group to put crap you don't need on the video when you can get the episode off winny 20 minutes after it airs?
