[10:00] <@Dr. Xadium> I got this email a while back but it escaped my notice:
[10:00] <@Dr. Xadium>:
I have opened a new website called Miss Dream ( Miss Dream is a project that I have been working on for some time, and it is dedicated to translating materials from the entire spectrum of the Sailormoon series. We currently have 8 staff members, half of which are translators who hold Bachelors degrees in Japanese from the State University of New York at Albany, the other half of which are Photoshop and other graphical programming whiz kids. The scope of the Miss Dream project is large, as we intend to translate as much Sailormoon material as people request. However, since the project is new, not many people know about it yet, and thus translation requests are few. I would like to ask your help in promoting this project.

[10:01] <@Dr. Xadium> I had envisioned something like this as the future of the Genvid project or of Wikimoon, but things didn't quite flow in that direction, so I wholeheartedly support this endeavour!

From what I've heard, there was some fight between fansub groups or something, with both groups at fault... either way, I've really enjoyed what Miss Dream has translated so far.

Yeah, recent developments with Miss Dream has led me to believe that the people there don't translate things for the fans as much as themselves and do it for the attention. Some of their members have resorted to low tactics, insults and cyber-stalking (a crime in some areas) of people who beat them to the punch with a translation. I don't recommend them at all.
