OMG what happened to DoReMii!?!

We got a makeover!
What's up with that?

Well it's kind of a funny story... While we regularly change our skin, DoReMii has had the same layout format for 3 years (mostly because Puppet is too lazy to rewrite all that code very often... and the style just worked). Well we (we = Resie) finally got sick of it in the middle of Puppet's two weeks of midterms and whined until Puppet caved and started redesigning the whole thing. Okay okay, before Resie kills me I should clarify... while that story is true, it's not the only reason for the revamp. It's something we have been meaning to do and it symbolizes a philosophical change in DoReMii's mission statement. Which is...

While we love Taiwan, we are tired of it getting allll the attention. DoReMii loves all of China, not just the little island in the south. Though it is no fan's fault, most of you automatically think anything Chinese is from Taiwan and don't even know that the rest of China has something to offer. Since we realize this is a sad fact we have the power to change, we have begun a little project of love that we call the Mainland Movement (learn more about it here). In partnership with Cfensi we are working to bring more Mainland music videos and dramas (as well as information) to the fansubbing community. If you have paid attention to our upcoming project page recently you would have noticed the increased amount of modern Mainland China dramas we will be subbing. Most of these are dramas that we have already seen, loved, and wanted to share their awesomeness. We hope everyone will support and enjoy the Mainland Movement. And don't start freaking out, we WILL still be subbing Taiwanese dramas we like too.

Back to the new look...
Our recent releases sidebar is now that sexy new slider on the left, clicking the images will still take you to the project page, and we have added a number of new pages to the site. The most notable being the Ask a Question page, for when your particular problem just doesn't seem to be part of the FAQ, and a page for reporting broken DDL links, both can be found under "help" in the new menu. The blogs search feature has also been enhanced and the page index is now numbered with a slider.

That sexy adorable man in the banner is Li Yi-Feng (李易峰), also sometimes known as Mr. Child. He is a Mainland idol. He is a singer and actor who is very famous and talented. He is in season two of Prince of Tennis and has the supporting male role in our upcoming Mainland drama project "Happy and Love Forever" where it is impossible not to love him. You will learn about him more later though. ;P

In other news, we are still accepting applications for new translators and timers so if you are interested head over to the staff page to find the application form.

Hi, love the new layout but I must ask, what's with the purple? Don't get me wrong, I love purple, but this year it seems to be everywhere, especially in Jdramas. Any special reason?

We decided on purple because well... We haven't really had a purple layout before. Nothing to do with what colour is in fashion anywhere in the world lol.

I just wanted to say that I'm REALLY excited about watching Bitter Coffee! I LOVE Hu Ge and am excited he's in a modern drama and that you're subbing his stuff! I know there are other wonderful people in that drama, but I'm really happy that something he's in is getting some attention because people need to know how great he is!
