Heyo, my name is Charlotte!

I've been a fan of Evil Flowers for a while and I recently noticed this position was open.

I've never actually done anything on manga but I have experience working as an editor! (Like "editing" editing. Um.) I also write a ton and I am a mean critic if that counts for anything. My eye also starts twitching if I see bad grammar or the like. If I have a pen or a marker on me, I'll do the writer a favor and fix the mistake for them!

...

So I'm anal. But that's a good thing in this line of work, right?

...

Ahem. Can I please take the test?

PS. What on earth are these little squiggly emoticon thingies called?! They're so cute!

Hi smile.gif

 

I'm interested in taking the test for proofreaders. My only qualifications are that I speak English and don't suck at it. I wasn't going to apply but the emphasis on how you have to be godlike triggered my fighting spirit xD

Hello, I'm actually really interested to give  this a try.

I've just made an account, for the purpose of applying to be a proof-reader.

The only sort of proof-reading I've done is at school haha.

I'm a native English speaker and I hope that I can be of help, and that a long the way

my own proof-reading skills will get better. 

I've been reading a lot projects released by evil-flowers so I thought I should finally

get off my butt and help out XD

I would also like to take the test for proofreading. Though I am not a native english speaker I do have confidence in my english knowledge and a proficiency Cambridge exam to back it up. I've been a long term fan of your group and I've been following many projects both active or inactive so if there is anything I could help with in this area (I suck in using photoshop so I can't be of help in other deparments, the only thing I am confident in is english!), I would be glad to do so. I have plenty of free time until october when university starts. Such a position will also help me improve my english knowledge. :D

Do not worry about not being a native speaker. One of our head proofreaders, X5ga, is not a native speaker himself. So, doesn't matter if you are a native speaker or not, you just have to past the test. 8D

Of course i am a native proofreader, I HAVE PROOFREADING IN MY BLOOD and i eat it for breakfast. speaking of which, i am hungry.

 

BUTT yes, i am not a native English speaker, and a subtle way of letting others know this is that i don't capitalize the pronoun "i".

 

Good luck with them tests 8D.

I have applied to the position of QC-er but since my computer isn't working, I cannot really complete that test.

I am already a proofreader for AQUA Scans. I wouldn't mind taking a Proofreading test if there is because I completed Proofreading for AQUA Scans through ipad. I wouldn't mind any shoujo manga with which you need a proofreader for but would really love to work with Keishichou tokuhanka 007 and platinum garden :-)

Looking forward to your test.

Hello!!! I'd really love to be a proofreader and help you as much as I can, I'm a Native English speaker and I read at least 20 chapters of manga everyday! I really hate finding typos so I figured if I don't like it I should do something to change it!!! Please allow me to take the test and show you how much I can help! Thank you!

Hi there! I am really interested in working with your organization as a proofreader. I've always wanted to know about how these beautifully crafted artworks reach the screens of non-Japanese readers like myself.

 

I do not have any experience in proofreading manga but I do have good English language skills as I am currently pursuing a degree in teaching English.

 

I hope you will consider my application to be part of your organization.

 

Thank you!

Hello~

I would like to show my interest in the position as a proofreader for this organisation Evilflowers. I really appreciate all the people who put hard work into making these translated online manga with such high quality. I read manga on a regular basis and always am thinking about all the hard work that goes into making one chapter to its best quality. This is why I have always wanted to join a team of people who strive to bring the best quality of manga to those who are not able to read Japanese, Korean or Chinese. And as I read a lot of manga's from Evilflowers, I thought I would join the team of proofreaders and other teams such as QC and translator (Japanese).

I am a hardworking, motivated and reliable university student who aims to give the best quality in all work I do.
I would be willing to read as many manga's as required, any time of the year, making me also a fully flexible person.

I am aware of the difference in spelling between American and British English for example in my message there is a word organisation, and in American English it is organization. As I was taught the British English first I tend to use that as a standard version. oni45 (I do not mind using the American spelling if this is preferred for your organization.)

I would enjoy proofreading any manga genre with a preference for shoujo, shounen, josei and school life.

I have an advanced level in English reading, writing and speaking and thus believe I am definitely capable of passing the test!

So, hereby I would like to request to take this test and am eager to be working with you soon!

Thank you~!

I would love to help out in any way I can and since I don't ,currently, speak Japanese I guess proof reading the mangas is my only option at the moment. It would be a pleasure to be selected though I may add that I have zero experience but everyone has to start somewhere. I may add that english is my first language and my favourite subject along with Latin.

Hi!

I was reading the Perfect Girl Evolution manga on mangafox, and some of the pages talked about evilflowers, so I have decided to come here and try to help :). I have minimal experience with photoshop/paint, however, I am really good with english and proofreading. I don't have any experience with proofreading or doing anything else with manga, but I feel like this position is a good start. I also have a very flexible schedule (especially now that it's summer). I hope I'll hear from you soon, and I wish to take the test! :)

I'm very interested in working with you!  I have been proofreading for Matteiru since January 2014. English is my first language and my major.  I also read manga and regular novels very quickly.  I would love to take the test and help out.

Thanks!

Hey there,
I'd also be interested in taking the test. Though I don't have any prior experience proofreading scanlations, I've just finished a Master's degree in English and would be happy to put my language skills at your disposal.
Thanks~

Hi!! ^^ Thanks to Meiji Hiiro Kitan I got to see this announcement!!

 

Let me thank you for making it possible for me (and those who still don't know Japanese) to read this amazing manga! floating-crazy-rabbit-emoticon.gif?12927

When I read that you need proofreaders I thought that this could be a good way to express my gratitude to what you've done and still do for  all the fans out there! xThat's why if it's not a problem for you I'd love to try my hand at proofreading! 

 

Wish everyone a great day/ a good night!!!  0(≧▽≦)0
