A: Maybe, but most likely no.
Q: One of your episodes of gets pixelated/doesn’t work/looks awful when I play it, why? ;__;

A: >2014 and can’t play x264
Q: Hey, I want to join you!
A: You may want to check here.
Q: How do I reach your IRC channel?
A: By clicking on ‘IRC’ up in the page navigation. Alternatively, you can also go to #Derp-Subs@rizon.net using your IRC client of choice.
Q: Wow, are all the people with + in the channel staff?
A: No, voice (+) does not equal staff. They’re just Elite Lurkers and the like. I guess you could count op (@) or higher to be some relatively staff-related people though.
Q: You promised a release yesterday, why isn’t it out yet?!
A: :Yesterday: probably refers to today, and you’re probably somewhere in Asia, where it’s tomorrow while it’s still today over here. GMT+1, remember it.
Q: You promised a release <insert week day here>, but it’s still <insert day before said week day here>, how come it’s already out?
A: Are you seriously complaining about an early release? Seriously though, it’s likely that you’re American, because it’s still yesterday over there, while it’s actually the correct release day here. GMT+1, remember it.
Why isn’t your latest release of <insert show Z here> on the IRC bot yet?
Because everything takes time.
Q: HOW DOWNLOAD FROM BOT?! (屮ﾟДﾟ)屮
A: YOU TYPE /MSG <INSERT BOT NAME HERE> XDCC SEND <INSERT PACK NUMBER HERE>! щ(ﾟДﾟщ)
And it doesn’t work from the webclient, you’ll need a proper IRC client, like mIRC for example. Also, please don’t write like that.
Q: “You have a DCC pending, Set your client to receive the transfer”, what do?
A: First take a look here, read through some of it, preferably post #2 and #6.
Short version (if you’re using mIRC): Go to Options -> DCC, set ‘On Send request’ to ‘Auto-get’, and to make sure it’s not stopping you from downloading, click ‘Trusted’ and disable ‘Limit auto-get to trusted users’.
Then go to Options -> DCC -> Ignore and choose ‘Disabled’ in the ‘Method’-dropdown.
Q: Shit’s so cash.
Inb4 10bit encodes.
Q: What the fuck?! Your encodes look like fucking crap!
A: No, they don’t. You just can’t handle them. Go here, it’ll help.
