The reason why we chose to close our membership is mainly because of two reasons.
1. You might have read from a couple of other subbing communities about the selling of subbed videos. An individual (or group, I have no idea) has been selling burned DVDs of fan-subbed videos which sadly, also includes MnI's videos. It may seem unfair to new fans or those not involved but we have to take a stand and remind ourselves of the fragility of subbing groups. It is only by the fandom working together that we can all protect ourselves.
To those who participated in taking action against the individual/group, thank you ♥
To those who are adversely affected by this decision, we hope you can be patient with us m(_ _)m
2. MnI hasn't really been active for a while now, aside from the occasional release. This is due to a lot of reasons but one of the biggest factors is that we do not have any regular translators on the team anymore. Going forward, if we can enlist the help of some translators, there is a high possibility that we'll come back as a regular subbing team but until then, we will probably continue as we are now.
Note: For those of you who submitted an application to join, we are slooowly going through them and I will update this post when we've finished so if you haven't been invited to join then, it means that you were too late or your application has been rejected.
Sorry for the overly formal tone everyone >_<
To our members, as a way of saying thanks for continuing to support us and to celebrate a few things, there will be a small release coming up~ ♥♥
