Operation Sandstorm Transcriptions Update: *Post updated regularly*

Hi Everyone, for those of us interested, here’s a post to list where Operation Sandstorm is up to. What is Operation Sandstorm? If this is new to you – catch up on what it is HERE. Any previous posts about Operation Sandstorm can be found under the ‘smk transcripts’ category on this blog.

I published a post back in Sept 2016 [Wow!] to check people are okay to share their dialogue transcripts with Operation Sandstorm [See HERE]. Anything shared for JWWM is free to be passed on to Petralit and Operation Sandstorm giving credit to transcribers of course. If you are not okay with this – please let me know.
For Operation Sandstorm dialogue and events descriptions are transcribed. We have some episodes where dialogue is already transcribed, but the descriptions are needing to be inserted. In the listing below, where it says Iwsod has the dialogue –this is because other wonderful smk fans have already done some of the work here and shared it (not me! lol). If you volunteer to do an ep with dialogue already done, I’ll email you what we have transcribed so far for you to fill in the gaps.

This post will act as a living document, and will be updated when needed. If you are interested in volunteering please let me know in comments below (and I’ll update the listing to reflect this). I can forward your work to Petralit on your behalf (I don’t think Petralit has made their email address public so I won’t share it publicly).

Here’s the episodes looking for volunteers to transcribe:
Season 2:
2.15 A Relative Situation

2.20 You Only Die Twice – Peacockdancer has volunteered

  1. Hi Everyone just updated this blog post! This list of episodes is getting shorter and shorter! How exciting!!!

    I’ve emailed Affair at Bromfield Hall (Thank you Peacockdancer!) and A Relative Situation (Thank you Liel!) to Petralit, to contribute to Operation Sandstorm. And I’ve asked for Peacockdancer and Liel to be attributed.

    Petralit will update when they can – I don’t know when, there could be a delay.

    If anyone ever wants a copy of a completed transcript that isn’t showing on Petralit’s website yet (www.smk-land.com) – feel free to email me and let me know and I can email it to you no problem.

    If I don’t respond to you within a week or two do feel free to chase it up okay?? I am getting a ton of spam in my inbox so I may miss it.
    Lastly, don’t forget: I may get it wrong so please feel free to comment here and let me know if there are any errors needing correctly. Thanks!
    And thanks to all the smk transcribers!
    We Salute You!!!

    I’m in need of some SMK distraction from the world right now, so now that I’ve finished A Relative Situation, I’ll take on Odds on a Dead Pigeon.


  4. I’m happy to give the weasel a dance. Are there any guidelines or is it a just have at it adventure?


    • Hi copperfield27 – go for it!!!
      For Operation Sandstorm we are transcribing both dialogue and descriptions.
      Formatting is not super complicated -you can see a transcript on the http://www.smk-land.com website as a guide (have you stopped by there yet?), or here’s an image of Sara’s Need to Know transcript to give you an example:

      If you have any other questions feel free to ask them here and someone will help, lots of people here have done transcripts. Thanks for volunteering!

    • Hiya Liel, thank you sooooo much for volunteering. sorry for my delay in responding, and thanks for chasing this up with me via email 🙂
      I hope you’ve enjoyed sinking your teeth into an episode via doing the transcribing!


  7. Hi Everyone, just updated this post today…
    Thanks to Peacockdancer for finishing the episode Over the Limit – and for nominating to next transcribe Affair at Bromfield Hall.
    I hope you have your smelling salts/ drool bucket handy!!

    I’ve emailed the transcript to Petralit and asked that Peacockdancer be attributed on http://www.smk-land.com once it’s uploaded.

    I also asked Petralit to let me know when the listings are updated if possible.. as I can understand it is kinda cool to see your name listed there and your hard work acknowledged!!
    If I hear anything I’ll update this post. thanks all!


  8. Hi Everyone, just letting you know that I’ve forwarded to Petralit the following transcripts to be added to smk-land.com
    Stemwinder 2 (transcribed by KC)
    A Matter of Choice (transcribed by Peacockdancer)
    Suitable for Framing (transcribed by Peacockdancer)
    Thanks KC & Peacockdancer, I’ll be sure to ask Petralit to acknowledge your hard work on smk-land.com

  10. I’ll do Over the Limit! I am just putting the final touches on Suitable for Framing and will send it to you today or tomorrow. It includes descriptions and I would be delighted if you would forward to Petralit as well.

    • Thank you Peacockdancer! I have emailed Petralit your transcript for Matter of Choice – thank you very much! Thanks for volunteering to transcribe Over the Limit!!

      I’m sorry this post doesn’t acknowledge the names of everyone who has already contributed -I wanted to keep the post brief.

      Everyone will be acknowledged over at smk-land.com where Petralit hosts the transcripts though.


      • I am finished with Over the Limit and will email it to you in a moment. Doing the run-through proofreading was quite a fun family project. Lots of good material in there, that’s for sure.

        If no one has signed up for Bromfield Hall, I would love to take that one on next. It is sort of a sentimental favorite because London is my favorite city.


  11. I’ll do Utopia Now.
