Official editor recruitment post~

I was intending to email those of you who had expressed an interest in editing this project, but then I realized that a number of people had contacted me in ways that prevented me from emailing them directly. Thus, here we go with a public post.

-------------------------------------------------------------

R.O.D. Light Novels Translation Project Editor
Primary Duties
--regularly emailing/messaging me to prod me into translating more
--emailing/messaging me again when I ignore you the first time
--providing neutral feedback on standardizing translations of terms/names/idioms
--catching English grammatical errors that I miss from my brain trying to bridge two insane languages

These tasks could theoretically be crowd-sourced, but (1) that is a stupid term, and (2) responding to one person going "hey, this part is kind of vague; what was the original text here?" is a lot easier than doing that with a dozen incoming requests; for greater fidelity to the original text, a single editor is the way to go. (It's also a lot easier to tell a faceless crowd vs a single editor to go buzz off when I want to play Borderlands. We want to avoid this.)

Requirements
--a solid grasp on English grammar
--tolerance for potentially having emails/messages dodged
--reliability
--ability to commit to this until the 1st book is done at the very least (how long that would be depends on the strength of your whip-cracking arm)

Compensation
--getting to read new pages before everyone else
--ensuring that new pages are actually being translated for you to read
--the consumable item of your choice if you are ever in the Boston area

-------------------------------------------------------------

Those who feel they are up to the task, plz comment below. Make certain your comment is linked to an email or PM-able account of some sort. If more than one person comments, we shall begin The Trial of the Editor, using my secret methodology.

...

ETA: Deadline for signups will be Monday morning, as I will be offline until then.

Later... PoolPost now closed!
