Well, when I racked up 500 views (and counting) of an tedious summer hit (or, as they can aptly be dubbed in Swedish, "sommarplåga" ("summer plague/scourge")) from the mid 00s in less than a day, for a while I thought there was a bug in the views feature. It wasn't until later that I thought of that annoying YouTuber, and sure enough... People want to watch that? He makes millions off of it? What's the world come to?! And now I've contributed to it in some manner... Ugh...

I'm spreading the gospel of LT:s footnote feature, one member at a time...
And here are some other useful features:
My list of started translations grows faster than my list of completions... That's the downside of doing things for fun (and not doing them when they're not as fun anymore).
I appreciate any and all feedback, and I'm more likely to fulfill requests for people who have thanked me earlier, than I am for those who haven't.
I definitely don't love all of the songs whose lyrics I translate, nor the artists who perform them; at times I have even translated ridiculous lyrics, but there has also been instances when I've turned away from translating a song just because I don't want to lend any credence or credibility to a song or artist I don't feel deserve it.
