Pruned the thread cuz too many pages (early spring cleaning). I left some posts that I thought would be relevant and helpful *Wink Wink Nudge Nudge*

 

 

Also removed applicant links for those I've already checked oni47

Hi!

I'd like to apply for the cleaner position, I've already sent the test to your mail :)
It's my first time cleaning but, for a beginner, hopefully it's not bad. :D

Cleaning Test? I will be honest, I don't have a bunch of time and can maybe do 1 chapter every 2 weeks at the quickest. The amount of time I have can vary throughout the year.

If you need the other pages done, I can do them later. I figured give what I have now as I will need to work on the other pages on a different day.

 

Note: I had a little fun with it and added text. It's not part of my test submission. :P

Hajime Mashite (First time greeting), Evil Flowers's mod.

I current have a lot of free time so I learn to be a cleaner and typesetter.

I want to apply to be Evil Flowers's Cleaner or TypeSetter.

I'm a newbie so forgive me if I can't do it perfect, but I'm a hardworking person, so I will get better over time.

 

Dear mod.

Hi there. We're definitely looking for cleaners and typesetters but I am not sure if we have any trainer available. I've included couple helpful guides you can use. I suggest you to keep on practicing. That is how all of us learn how to clean/typeset. The tests are on the first post of this thread. Read the instructions when you decide to take it. Good luck! If you have any questions, feel free to let us know.

Hello first of all i didnt opened the instruction.doc because i dont have any programs that can open it sadly not even .txt,

so first i read The Idiot's Guide to Editing Manga i read everything from scanning upto post editing,

while i was reading it, i thought that i should try it doing while reading it, you know hands on is the best method when learning,

i did everything upto page 5 following the guide sometimes i just dont know what to do with the page or if im doing it wrong,

then i came across the instruction.doc but i can't open it, if you dont believe me heres the screenshot

 

http://prntscr.com/8u5zk4

 

until i tried opening it with notepad++

 

http://prntscr.com/8u60hl

 

then i realize that im doing it wrong so i might not pass the test,

well im almost finished so i just want to show what i did in those 3hours of my life

http://www.mediafire.com/download/ztuip1i3oybq2hd/_Cleaner_Test_Kair.rar

its all in jpeg 

 

my photoshop knowledge is average its a new experience for me to try those, and with that i realize how hard it is, it really needs dedication :)

i only did game banners/advertisment/website design/forum signature in the past with the games that i played on

heres my previous work http://s222.photobucket.com/user/kair04/library/?sort=3&page=1

 

thank you for the wonderful experience, long live stay healthy

it should be openable using microsoft word o_o do you not have it installed?

 

Edit: I heard that you may need microsoft office to be able to open doc files after some version of windows :/

But you can also open the doc file on google drive

I'd love to become a typesetter and I'm a whiz with computers, but I haven't done any projects before. I would be willing to give up my free time and work as much as it takes. It's just I don't know where to start... and if it was needed I could also work as a cleaner.

Hi there, I would like to help out for the typesetter job but I was just wondering if there are still anymore spaces left??? 

 

Thanks

Welcome to EF! Neko's usually managing editors (cleaners & typesetters) but she seems to be away so I'll answer instead. ;) Yeah, we'll surely could use another typesetter. :) Feel free to try out the test on the first page and good luck!

I'm afraid we might need to close the typesetter recruitment again :S (mainly bc hira is back, and also bc there was another typesetter from like a year ago who applied and recently asked us again if they could join)

 

Boxes are literally square boxes where text goes in, they are usually either thoughts or narration

thoughts are usually floating text that are not in bubbles but can also be found in boxes, those are not spoken and represent what the character is thinking.

Narration is similar to thoughts, they can be floating or in a box, they usually don't represent a character's thoughts but instead is a "narrator" who speaks in third person that explains a situation or sets up the scene

Hello again! I'm having trouble opening the cleaner test after downloading them, I'm wondering if I need a certain application or program downloaded prior to downloading the test files?

Thank you

I think the problem is that you don't have a rar archive unpacker? Just download the free one (for windows) here: https://www.winrar.de/

I am also interested in helping you guys out with cleaning ^^.

 

I do have some past experience, but I can't say I'm 100% there.

 

However, there is one thing that might be a problem.

 

Are you guys fine with GIMP?
 

I can export them to PSD files, and I've never had any issues with GIMP from my previous scanlation groups in terms of layers. However, I realize there are some groups that do not accept gimp users.
