    Default Lyric Translation Challenge Month 2019

    So it's been about a year since we last did a translation challenge, and I'm here to gauge interest in doing another one. This year I'm proposing a simplified ruleset, as follows:
    1. To participate, you should sign up in this thread committing to a number of songs to translate during the month of April. The general rule of thumb is that the minimum target is ten songs for translators who have been active for two years or less or have twenty or fewer translations on the site and twenty-four for everyone else, but this is now flexible. The important thing is that it should be a challenge for you and not something you can easily complete without trying too hard, but being a veteran translator doesn't mean you don't struggle to find the time to translate ten songs in a month.
    2. You may, if you want to, list specific titles of songs that you plan to translate. There is no requirement that you do this at all or, if you choose to do it, that a certain number/percentage of your total number should be specified. If you sign up to do twenty-four songs, for example, you can list anywhere between zero and twenty-four specific songs, depending on your preference for having a set list to go down (and ensuring that no one else is planning to translate the same songs you are, though I don't think that's a huge problem) vs. having the flexibility to work on whatever you feel like at the moment.
    3. The challenge will begin at 12:00 AM on April 1 in your time zone and end at 11:59 PM on April 30 in your time zone.
    4. During the challenge period, I will try to keep track of everyone's progress and edit links to finished translations into sign-up posts, but I may miss things, in which case you can let me know and/or edit the link into your post yourself.
    5. If you complete the number of translations you signed up for before 11:59 PM on April 30th, you will win a "prize" (i.e. a tacky forum gift) and a sense of accomplishment. (Maybe the true prize was the translations we made along the way! Or something like that.)

    So, if you're interested, let me know! You don't necessarily have to have a number and/or a song list ready to go in your first comment in this post, but I do want to know sooner rather than later if enough people are interested to make this worth doing.

    Sure, that sounds fine! I think the real purpose of this is to encourage ourselves and each other to get more done than we would otherwise, so that seems in the spirit of the challenge to me.

    I'm in! I'll commit to 24, but probably fall short of that. Still, I feel that aiming for a higher number will mean that I complete more than I would have otherwise.
    I may edit in songs I plan on doing to this post at a later time, but I'm not too bothered right now.

    Okay, this is definitely enough to be going on with!

    I haven't decided exactly what my target number is going to be yet, but I just counted and over the last several months I've averaged nine translations a month, so, uh, I'm probably going to be taking advantage of my own relaxed rules.

  7. Thanks Hikarin thanked for this post

    @Fuukanou and @bambooXZX , if you're still interested, you should post your target numbers!

    I'm going to go for 16, myself, since that's significantly more than I've been doing but not, like, an implausible stretch.

    I think I'll go for the default 24 while I de-rust - just about matches the number of songs I know I'm interested in.

    ...setting aside that I've literally never made my target number even at the best of times :V

    Okay, let's see where we are after a week and a half:

    @bambooXZX : 1/24 (4%)
    @bluepenguin : 2/14 (14%, but only because I wasn't as ambitious as you guys to begin with)
    @Fuukanou : 27/24 (112%)
    @Hikarin : 0/24 (0%)

    Okay, so Fuukanou is an absolute madman, even considering that these were translations that were already started, but the rest of us can still pull it off! I believe in us!
