We are having two problems in the Japanesee subtitles.
One is that machine translations are being uploaded by anonymous uploaders.
Fortulnately many users post a comment notufying others that it is a machine translation.

The second problem is that we have a user, previously logging in as gangfan and now gang2fan who posts obnoxious comments
against people to warn others that a sutitle is a machine trtanslations. This user needs to be banned as soon as possible for his repeated and continuous behavior.

Is there a Moderator who can help?

Firstly, I suggest you apply to be admin for that section here:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1996&start=195#p44510

I was certain we had a Japanese admin, but he must have left/retired.
If you do choose to become admin, general guidance and rules will be sent to you and you can moderate the Japanese section.
It's best we have a native speaker.

Secondly, we don't ban users just like that without giving them a warning first. As the Japanese section doesn't have an admin at the moment, he's probably as upset as you are about the machine translations, just doesn't/can't express himself amicably.

The Japanese section doesn't seem that busy with the amount of uploads coming in, so can't imagine it would be a difficult job for you, as long as you have an hour to spare and to check it every couple of days.

Do consider joining and helping the community.

PS: Can't find a user by that name, must have deleted his account. User search is case-sensitive.

Thank you for your response. Firstly, I misspelled that user's name, it is gan2fan, formerly ganfan.
Also he is not upset at those who upload M/Ts. He is attacking those who post warnings that it is a M/T.
This user has a history of obnoxious behavior.
I looked at that link and while I could probably swing it time wise, I don't know if I have uploaded enough subs.
I did several when we went into a semi-lockdown here in Japan last year.But haven;t done any this year, I think.
Anyway, thank you very much for your attention.

The fact is you’ve been a member for over 8 years. Higher upload count is normally for newer users to avoid giving admin powers to someone who may misuse it.

Just apply, explain lack of uploads and put a link to this thread with your post stating I sent you and I’m sure it’ll workout.

Or contact smallbrother by PM. He’ll take care of it. And give you access to admin guide topics.

Good luck
