Welcome to Menimi.

★ Community dedicated to sub mainly (but not exclusively) Arashi's videos. We'll work on things that catch our attention, from variety shows to dramas and movies
Every release will be MEMBER-LOCKED.
★ The projects shared by this community are for PERSONAL use only.
★ English is not our mother tongue, please, forgive us if we make some mistakes here and there. (We take feedback as long as is given in a respectful way)
★ You can request a project, we promise we'll consider it, but we don't promise to work on it.To request a project, do it in the | Released projects | post, please.
We provide hardsubs only.
As of February 28th  we removed all members due to constant rule violations.
As of October 2018, this community will not be providing new releases, we will keep the moderated membership open during all month but be patient, we may take time in process requests.
Regardless of the activity status, rules still apply for all releases.
If you have any other question, contact the mods! (fickleunicorn or tabunhappy). We will only reply to messages regarding issues not explained in the post, any issue regarding membership removal, asking to be added or c&p of joining applications will be ignored.
If your application was rejected make sure you met the required criteria and that you followed ALL THE STEPS before coming asking for a reason. If you feel you met the requirements and followed the steps then please let us know in a comment, do not pm us for membership reasons unless we ask you to.

DON'T STREAM: fansubbing is illegal. Starting from that, we have decided to limit the distribution of our projects to this community only, away from streaming. To help this comm survive (and avoid your mods to go to jail), please, don't stream ANY of our videos in partial or completely ANYWHERE.

DON'T CREATE MIRRORS: We provide mega links only BUT unless we specifically ask you, do not create additional links.

DON'T RE-DISTRIBUTE: Joining Menimi is quite easy, so please, if any of your friends want any of our videos, direct them to the original post. Do NOT give them the dl links or passwords and do NOT share the files via hard drives or similar methods.

DON'T RE-UPLOAD: Do not upload ANY of our works to ANY file sharing site, subtitle download site or any other site in public or private way. Re-uploading our projects somewhere else equals stealing our work, so please, don't.

DO NOT SELL: These subs are for free (and if you have paid for them, you've been scammed), so do not make a profit from our work.

DON'T REPOST: Do NOT post ANY of the content from this comm, anywhere. Not only the subs, download links and passwords, but also the post cointaining them, believe it or not, this happens too.

DON'T RIP TANSLATIONS: We work hard in each of our projects, so do NOT copy our translations nor make them pass as yours. That's stealing our work.

NO RETRANSLATIONS ALLOWED: when translating the first time, it already loses some parts of the original content. Re-translating may result in a distortion of the meaning. So please, DON'T re-translate into your language using our subs.

DON'T MODIFY OUR FILES: This includes making hardsubs from the softsubs still available at the comm, renaming our files, re-encoding, etc.

Before  leaving a comment, take your time to make sure you meet the required criteria to be accepted.

1.- Members that have 0 or low participation on LJ (comments posted) based on the date your account was created and the number of communities you are part of, will be automatically rejected. We know some of you may be busy and not around much, but is not that hard to drop a comment every once in a while or to comment things around.

2.- Each profile will be considered individually, which means, there's not a standard in # of comments posted, etc. So gathering comments just to get in and then ghosting on us, won't work.

3.- If your account is new, we strongly suggest you to try to be active around in the other active comms, or commenting things around (fics, fanarts and information post shared on the general arashi comms).

2. Leave a comment in this post (only LJ accounts will be approved= no FB, no twitter, no google +, nothing, just LJ), with the following:
     - tell us a bit about yourself.
     - where are you from (Please specify the country).
     - Include what other social networks you use and your uname. * this is optional, but highly encouraged*.
     - Please state where or how you find out about menimi and if you were a previous member.
     - Explain each rule in your own words, (we don't accept copy and paste).
3.-Click the join button (Only once!)
4. If you forget any step, your membership won't be approved and we won't tell you what your comment is missing or why you won't be approved to join.
5. Wait for approval to join the comm. (And be patient, some times, it may take us longer to check requests).
6.- If you were rejected or forgot any step you need to request again following  ALL the steps, which means for example if you commented but you don't click join, next time you need to comment again AND click join.
7. We reserve the right to decline or revoke membership without previous notice, if we see fitting.

Today, February 28th, we purgued community's membership.

The reason, as always, has been the constant violation of our rules. We've let many of them pass, trying to avoid reaching this point. But there is always a limit, and this time it has been reached.

It's getting tiring to go around any of our accounts, and see how people gives a afsgdhfg about what we ask you in exchange of our work.

We don't get paid for this, we have RLs, and we do this in a try to help. The only thing we've ever asked in exchange was respect.
Respect towards us and towards our work. I don't think it's a high price to pay.

Now, this is not the only thing that caused this, but it was the last straw: our links, being posted openly on mydramalist. Not just in passing, but this user expressly went around spreading links that weren't supposed to be taken outside the community. (marked as spoilers so only mydramalist members can see them)

We have deleted the files from our mediafire account, so they cant get access to them. But the lack of consideration towards every member and former member of this community, as well as towards us, is seriously sad.

I understand this is a huge inconvenience for all, having to go through joining a community that recently wasn't that easy to join. It hasn't been easy for us to remove everybody either. And making you, and us mods, go through this was the last thing we wanted and we tried to avoid.

We are not closing the community, and we have settled a new membership post for you to join.The joining process is pretty much the same as before.

We announced our next project already, and that's still up as long as we don't face this kind of situation again.

So please, please, this time, let's try to be nice and participative, and let's all do our best to not be asses.

And last of all, remember, we don't force anybody to join the community. If you don't like us, or you don't like our ways, nobody is forcing you to join.
