From  2 weeks and 5 days until the day before yesterday (June 1st, 2013)  14 people  joined the http://www.amara.org/en/teams/independentfilm/ team, i.e the team for applying to join the actual subtitling team http://www.amara.org/en/teams/independentfilm-workgroup/: less than one person a day.

Out of them, only two were admitted to the actual subtitling team: Dharma Lee  and teddy fres, i.e. 1 in 7.

Then yesterday (june 2, 2013), there were problems accessing Amara pages: see my Independent Films joining team + 502 Bad Gateway topic on the Amara Help forum. When the site was viewable between these “502 Bad Gateway” messages, it sported a banner inciting people to join the http://www.amara.org/en/teams/independentfilm/ application team.  Between yesterday and today June 3, 2013 at 12:38, i.e. in roughly 24 hours, 42 people joined the application team: over 42 times more per day than in the preceding fortnight.

After the “502 Bad Gateway” glitch stopped, the banner advertising  http://www.amara.org/en/teams/independentfilm/ disappeared, and joining it more or less stopped

Let’s see if yesterday’s applicants to the actual subtitling team will receive more attention than the former ones.
