Dear subscene community,
A few days ago our dear Lyliakar announced that she steps back from her role as an admin as of now for personal reasons, mainly time issues. We are shocked by this decision, but at the same time we have to respect and accept it. That won't be easy. Lyliakar has practically defined subscene single-handedly and has been the heart and soul of subscene for a decade. All those years she took care of the requests, complaints and needs of the subtitle community. She did her best to help everybody, although she never hesitated to ban all those bad guys who refused to follow the rules. She uploaded literally thousands of subtitles and translated quite a few herself. She was the one who in late 2007 created the subtitle admin team with foofoohightech, Dr kalid, myself and others in it. She taught us how to administrate a site like this and together we created the subscene rules that are still in effect today.
Without her, we wouldn't have subtitle admins for several languages now and this place would be a total mess. Without her, subscene would definitely not be the best and most visited subtitle site in the world. Something to be proud of, isn't it?
On behalf of all the admins and the whole community, I'd like to thank my dear friend Lyliakar for what she's done in so many years. We'll try to honor that commitment and we hope that the "spirit of subscene" will never leave us entirely. May she one day find the time again for what will always be the motivation and passion of all of us: quality subtitles for everybody to enjoy. She will remain a community member and I am sure that she would be happy to read lots of praise and positive comments or private messages in the days to come.
Thank you for everything you've done, Lyliakar. You did great.
Come on everybody, give her the praise that she deserves for 10 years of voluntary work and devotion!
