Okay! Thank you for applying! It's our pleasure for having you in the team since you're quite professional!

I guess you should become our translator since not many people applied for that position yet. And I guess you don't need any proof read? xD

Don't worry about it, I'll add you right away!

If you get another translator, we can cross-check each other's work, which would be good for quality control.

But yes, I'd be glad to be translator! And since my first language is English, I can proof read other's works as well if you want.

Okay, from now on we'll have you in our team as a Proof reader and a fanfiction writer!

Thanks for applying and good luck!

About the deadline, it depends on the length of your fanfiction. If it's oneshot maybe the deadline will be 2-4 weeks? And for the multi chapters, maybe 3 months per chapter is enough.

All the other requirements I've told you in my previous post :)

Re: Application for Editor or Colorist
Oh, thanks for applying!

But I must say this, hope I won't hurt you too much ;_; I can't accept you to the Colorist due to your coloring... they're a bit spare, they don't have visible shades so they looked a little unreal. These critiques are something an average artist, one of my friend could tell you.

And what did you do for the school assignments? I want to know so I can arrange you in a suitable position.

Re: Application for Editor or Colorist
Lol it's okay, I kinda felt that my shading needs work and I like to have some critiques as well so no worries :3

As for my school assignments, I made posters, book covers, and music album covers. I uploaded a few here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mchow2250/sets/72157626556666722/
