MYR was established in 2006 by Rain. Rain, along with help from other passionate Michelle fans enabled this forum and website to thrive. However, as time progressed many fans that grew up with Michelle became more involved in their personal busy lives and no longer had time to help. We completely understand when that happens because after all nothing is forever. But Rain and my passion for Michelle lives on and we have the intention to keep this site for as long as she's still in the entertainment business.
Now, with Rain taking a long hiatus, I am now the main administrator for this forum and website. However, this administrator is quite useless because I can only speak Vietnamese, but I can't read it and obviously I don't speak/read Chinese, so I can't do translations. So I am seeking for help.
This forum is in need of
Translators (Chinese to English, Vietnamese to English) graphic designers Updating her weibo (some of you are already doing that, and I so appreciate it!) Active members to keep this forum alive. and whatever else you want to volunteer with.
Yeah, it's tough finding someone who can write Chinese and English and has the commitment to do it. It's okay, any help now and then would be great as well.
Michelle's Viet forum is regularly translated. So when I get a chance, I'll get my mom to read the news and I can translate that to English. But I have to warn you that it's probably going to be in bullet form and just sorta brief and to the point. I'm so busy this summer, so I probably won't be able to commit more time until after August. :/
Lololol I couldn't help it. Just registered myself in here Anyways... you think there's anyone who will help me with the translations? If not, it's okay ;D But I'm planning to translate Michelle's recent magazine. It hasn't been translated in here, right?
YAY!! HI!!! I want to OFFICIALLY welcome you to the forum!!!
How big is the magazine article? I'm sorry, but I can't help with any translations until September. My only fear when I start doing the translations is that i'm already translating something that was orginally Chinese then translated to Vietnamese, then I translate to English. I feel like somewhere in the process things will get lost in translation if you know what I mean.
I hope Rain will come back from her hiatus and do translations one day soon. But I think she feels very burnt out. She always felt like she had to translate everything and be very thorough...and I think that resulted in her just feeling overwhelmed...so much that she took almost a year long haitus. So, please don't feel like you have to translate more than what you can handle. Just translate whenever and whatever you feel like doing. The last thing I want is for you to feel overwhelmed so much that you even stop coming to the forums to just "hang out"
At any rate, I'm very thankful for your contribution to MYR. You ROCK dude!
@rm1312. No, Rain still visits, she's just not very active right now. I still "talk" to her every now and then. Her life has just been hectic lately with her work and traveling. Any spare time she has right now isn't enough time to catch up on MYR. But yes, I do hope she'll return one day soon, even if it isn't the role of translator...just to chat with us.
No, I'm not translating anything at the moment. I just meant this was my past fear and future fear.
@mia, right now I don't need any graphics...but for future stuff, I'll be nice to just have a graphic designer around when needed. I want to eventually change this forum skin to something lighter and less black.
^^ Okay. I'm not really that good in HTML stuff, but would be nice if I could just take a look at it though so I can see how the layout is formatted and stuff like that and then, see if I can possibly do something. If not, then I can just do some photo-shopping, but hopefully the upcoming school year will not be a distraction. =)
Thanks Mia for the help! Pro boards is sorta tricky, since you have to go into the settings in headers and footers...etc. I had the codes and everything, but Rain used like a special code that I can't seem to figure out how to get rid. But if you are confident in figuring it out, I could show you. Otherwise no worries!
I'm an admin/mod in another type of forum and I don't really know how to touch the codes so I just photoshop here and there, but I dealt with it before. It's just that, it's been like 5+years and I hardly can remember any codes or HTML, but good thing is, I'm majoring in computer graphics/web designs so hopefully it can help me learn these stuff. Probably won't have much time because school is starting in 2 weeks, but if you can show me, I'll take a look at it whenever I'm free. Otherwise, if you need a graphic designer, then just let me know. I'll try my best. Thanks again! =)
