DEMO QC: Tsubasa v19c144 - FOR QC *update #7*
« on: November 09, 2008, 09:11:22 AM »

This thread is a real demo of the BWYS QC process. I've made this public to show anyone interested in the QC position a working example of the kind of forum-based collaborative QC process as it happens in BWYS.

To start off, I will create a thread in the staff board with a chapter of manga that needs to be looked at. I have not assigned these QCs work, they are QCs so they will check the forum regularly to see if there's anything needing to be done that they would be willing to do. Once someone posts a list of problems, I will then update the download link in the first post with a corrected version. I then make a new post to say that I've made corrections and change the thread topic so that others can tell it's been updated. 

Some of the QCs make SFX corrections as well because they are able to read the Japanese. This is not compulsory but would be very helpful.
 



http://bwys.org/downloads/tsubasa/tsubasa19_c144_BWYS.zip (note: this link now leads to the final, released version of this chapter)

If anyone's free and wants to, look it over and tell me if there are any mistakes.


:0 another one in one night, I am powering on!

XiongMao-kun's QC



c144

p6
"I think I want the..." -> "I think I want the last "chess match" to be a one-on-one fight, but" -> lol pieces is spelled wrong

p8
"Be careful" -> "Be care-/ful"

p10
"Poignant" lolwtf
"The person..." -> I would make this thinner.
-> Try "The person with whom I travelled looked just like you."
"Because of me" -> Sounds better with a "But" in front.
"try to blame yourself" -> Just "blame yourself"

p12
"I hear it from..." -> Wouldn't you end with an ellipse because she doesn't continue talking?
"You're right" is a little to the right. (lol)

p13
Make sure this really is "I will win." and not "We will win."

p15
"It's a weapon, but" -> "Those are weapons, but"
"Thats not what ..." -> "Those aren't what you normally use, right?"
"Fight me using the..." -> "Fight me with your best weapon."
"Using magic..." -> "Magic is also allowed."

p16
"But this power..." -> "But your power also depends on your master's will." <-- Doesn't that imply strength?

p18
Doesn't flow into the next speaking part, so try "Well, my piece,"

p20-21
Automated? Automatic? I prefer "Automated"

was doing some raw checking (144 vs 149)...

04
promise me -> please promise me that
(whatever you finalize this bubble as, keep it consistent in 149)

06
"chess match" -> "chess" match

15
best with -> most skilled with (still sounds kinda awkward... I think it's the part where it ends with 'with') -> 'most skilled at' or 'best at'?

20-21

is there such -> capitalize

Updated again with lighter logo, SFX fix on p12 and one or two typesetting changes. I believe this is ready for release.
