From a non-QCer (aka not formally in the proofreading position):

Know english, and know it well. You have to be able to fix grammatical and spelling errors, as well as rephrase entire sentences in order to create "flow"

The QCing team will be by soon to give you a test along with instructions, but to give you a heads up, it will probably include a bad script that needs lots of changing.
Make sure any changes you make are visible, whether they be bolded, in brackets, or something.

But ya, wait for the QCing team for the final word on it =P

Good luck!

Hello Rondemion! I've seen you lurking the forums but, formally (and personally) I would like to say, "Welcome!". My name is Millos Assailant (aka Paul) and I'm part of the QC and Translator team here in Muda. Nice to meet you!

Okay so, you need a test to see how capable you are in your English skills, as bajuwa explained. Therefore, I'm gonna give you one paragraph to proofread for me. It's in the spoiler below. Catch as many mistakes as you can, and then reply to this post, with your revised changes in spoiler tags.

Spoiler:
 

Thanks and Good Luck! Smile

Lol... Yeah, Meg and I have agreed on this. It's gonna be our side job to make more of these grammatically awful paragraphs. XD

Hmm...think of it as an innovative pseudo-entrepreneurial scanlation upbringing, to see if we can get some high quality QC'ers up in the house. Razz

Oh that's right! Meg, it's in your inbox! ^_^

I just need a final verdict from the almighty proof'ing prodigy, itamaesan. Wink

EDIT: Okay so, we have agreed and decided that...you were very close, but unfortunately, was just not enough to pass. =/ Sorry bro! Try out for the other positions available. You can still become one of us! Very Happy
By the way... Happy Holidays! santa
