We’re starting up something a bit different for us, and labeling it as CMS Side Projects. Side project releases will be tagged [CMSSide] in filenames and be considered a different group for listing purposes on sites like MyAnimeList and AniDB. There’s a dedicated site for CMSSide releases as well.
So what are CMS Side Projects? They’re various things, some may be encoding experiments (like the upcoming first release we’re putting out using this label); some may be series that fewer people wanted to work on, so they haven’t gotten the full polish that we insist on for a full ColorMeSubbed release. That doesn’t mean the quality will be bad for that type of CMSSide release, it just means it’s not received quite as much attention as a full CMS release. (For example, a CMSSide project that’s an encoding experiment may have had little editing done, just using existing subtitles without modification, whereas a full CMS release would be fully edited before we put it out.) There might even be some non-anime stuff that comes out under the CMSSide label.
This will allow us to give our members more leeway on working on things, something we’ve been wanting to do for a while now.
We hope you enjoy our upcoming CMSSide projects!
