Transcripts Update August 2020

Hi Everyone, hope in these universally stressful times you are staying well and looking after yourselves.

Time to review where season 4 dialogue transcripts are up to, then we’ll get on with the walk Smile . It’s time to see who is interested in contributing, and reassure everyone this is not an obligation – smk is for fun- and don’t feel any pressure to do this!! My priority for upcoming posts is transcription of Lee/Amanda scenes – if you’d like to volunteer and just transcribe them, go right ahead, I think it’s likely for some upcoming episodes they are going to be walked through with less posts!

Note: This list is a living document, and I’ll update it as things change. Here’s a summary of where transcripts are up to for remaining Season 4 episodes:

Completed: [Huge thank you everyone!!!!]
10. Need to Know – Sara transcribed
11. Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag – Clagjanet transcribed
12. Any Number Can Play –Learjet transcribed
13. Promises to Keep – Clagjanet
15. Bad Timing – Sara transcribed
16. Do You Take This Spy – LeeLovesAmanda
19. All That Glitters  – Clagjanet transcribed
22. The Khrushchev List -Learjet transcribed

Not assigned and looking for a volunteer:

21. A Matter of Choice
[Anyone interested? you can just transcribe the Lee/Amanda stuff if you like, I can’t remember this episode,maybe it’s really bad?!] 

Assigned and confirmed to be underway:

14. Rumors of My Death – Cindy D

Assigned, yet to confirm the transcribing is going ahead:
17. Mission of Gold – Melissa R has volunteered
18. One Flew East – BJo has volunteered
20. Suitable for Framing – Melissa R has volunteered

Sorry if I’ve made a mistake here – just let me know and I’ll update the listing. No pressure on ANYONE to do this – I can continue the walk without transcripts it will just be a bit different/shorter. For some season 4 episodes maybe that’s for the best?! lol. so many I don’t remember!!

I think I’ll come back to Operation Sandstorm once I’ve finished the walk.

Take care all!! thankyou2

Transcribing Season 4- How are we going?

Hi everyone! I hope you are all staying well.
I need to review how we are all going with Season 4 transcripts. Transcripts help me to get blog posts written more quickly and are a HUUUUUGE help.


I thank everyone who has been contributing to writing SMK transcripts. This walk wouldn’t be happening without you! thankyou2


I can’t promise the walk is going to continue on consistently now till the end of Season 4, but I can tell you I have more blog post writing time, and covering episodes in less detail now means I can increase my speed in writing. Therefore, I need to check in with how people are progressing so transcripts are ready to go. So far, I’m nearing the end of writing Photo Finish, and it looks like  next 4 episodes are all transcribed, so things are looking really good!

I’d like to check in with how everyone is going transcribing episodes beyond Any Number Can Play –  Sometimes life happens and we can’t get done what we thought we could. That’s okay. If this is you – don’t worry just let us know and someone else can maybe step in and help out. No pressure – SMK is for fun!

I’ll be slowly checking in with each of you who has volunteered, individually and via email, to see how you are going.. Or feel free to respond here if you like.

[I gotta use this meme again, because well.. he looks so good!]

A Big Shout out to Transcribers on JWWM!!

Okay.. now that I’ve got your attention Smile 

It looks like Petralit has been busy revamping her site SMK-Land, and Operation Sandstorm is being reviewed & revitalised.. with the assistance of Moderator AlaskaFan over on the Yuku forum. What a fabulous idea! I’d like to send to AlaskaFan (See the forum post on Operation Sandstorm HERE) any of the transcribed dialogue I’ve been sent.

So I’d like to check with all transcribers: Are you happy for me to pass on your work so it contributes to Operation Sandstorm?

If your work is utilised by someone else to complete an episode for Operation Sandstorm, you will be acknowledged as a co-transcriber on the episode. Or, you may want to go ahead and complete it for Operation Sandstorm yourself I guess! See the post on yuku for a listing of what’s needed.

I’m sorry I don’t have time to check what episodes are already completed for Operation Sandstorm, this may not apply to all transcribers –Just let me know if you are not happy to pass on your work (iwsod@optusnet.com.au), no obligation! If you prefer, I will not pass on your work. Please let me know by November – I’ll start sending them to Alaska Fan then – once my big uuuugly deadlines have passed. No time for SMK at the moment – BOOO!!! but I thought I’d at least get this process of giving you a chance to opt out underway – I really appreciate your help with transcribing dialogue everyone!!

How are you wonderful season 4 transcribers going? [Season 4 Transcribers] I guess my hiatus is giving you guys a break! Or maybe, you are itching to get into smk – and some transcribing might help? Smile 

If anyone is unsure of what Operation Sandstorm is all about see HERE. Or you can post a question in this post’s comments. I’m sure someone will be able to assist you.

One more for the road..Cheers!

Bye all! I miss you guys! I miss SMK! I miss JWWM!!!! Bring on November!!!!!!!!!!woohoo-022
