Good afternoon sir (or ma'am), and welcome to the Muda forums!
Name's Paul. Nice to have you on board.

Itamaesan (the Quality Checker goddess) is busy at the moment, but she'll be able to assess you as soon as she can get to it. In the meantime, I can help her out by giving you a test where we can evaluate you properly. What you would usually be getting from us if you get the position, though, are translated manga scripts with the associated raws for reference.

Here, though, is a test where we can evaluate your basic grammar skills. Fix this by downloading it, opening it via a word processor, proof'ing it there, and then copy and pasting it back here. Just remember to envelop it in spoiler tags ("spoiler and "/spoiler" with square brackets, around the text) when you reply. Thanks again for the application, and good luck! Very Happy

@General:

Nice try, but I still see many more grammatical mistakes...and some of the ones you fixed were not correct. Try one more time and reply back. Then I'll let you know all the mistakes that it had.

Hint Hint: There is something wrong with almost every sentence.

Good luck!

Lol...I know. I just wanted to see how he would do on it grammar-wise, and then Meg would give him a script to proof. It was just for analysis purposes. =D

@General
You definitely fixed the errors I wanted you to fix. There were several others (which I had made on purpose for the test's sake) but...for test 1, you got a passing grade in my book
That test was part of a fanfic that I proofed recently. Here are the final changes that were made:

Spoiler:
 

But you're gonna have to wait for itamaesan regarding test 2. Skimming through it, though...it looks alright.

hmmm.... I'm not a proofreader or anything, but I still see many mistakes in that. most of them are capitilizing issues, lacking or having a 's' aka pluralization when they shouldn't, also missing a few comma's or periods in my opinion.

Example: “Come on,” Said Naruto prepared for a fight
anytime there is something in quotation marks (") that ends in a comma, the next line after shouldn't be capitilized
this should also be further changed by adding a comma after Naruto, and adding a period at the end of the sentence. this makes the sentence sound smoothing when reading, and is proper English grammar.

also i see a few mistakes missed in the manga script, but nothing too too bad, nothing a little training won't fix =P
(then again, this is coming from someone who doesn't work as a proof reader, so wait for ita's official word xD)

capitalization is not an issue when it comes to manga , since most fonts used by ts's are all caps by default and cant be changed

yes yes of course, for manga capitilization doesn't matter
but since that was a fan fic story, and not a manga, all grammar counts ^^

and best of luck general, no rush, take your time =P
