Thanks for applying, learenn.

I just looked over your PR test and am happy to say that you passed!
Roze typically looks at the cleaning tests and she's on a short break, but she'll get back to you soon.

In the mean time, we can start with your proofreading training in this thread here.

Thanks for your applying, 4585.

Congrats, you pass! You missed a few things in the spelling section, but I think you have the potential to be a great PR :) Hopefully, a little training will get you used to everything you need to look out for!

Typically, all trainees go through 3 chapters with a trainer before they become full staff.
Please go to your training thread here to continue!

Sorry for the wait, Sevs. I was on vacation XD

You're on a good tract with these corrections! Still some room for improvement with the grammar (bag/clothes part in particular) and more natural English, but I think typesetting will help you get exposure to different scripts and improve in that field. If you're still interested in continuing with PR training after typesetting, just let me know  :thumbsup:

Hi Sevs, thanks for waiting.

You did pretty well on the first two sections but your script could use a bit more work. Here are some tips if you decide to try again after some revisions:
-Triple check for capitalization, spelling, punctuation and verb conjugation on all scripts! Make sure you're not capitalizing after a comma and all your verb tenses are appropriate for the line and across consecutive lines if they're on the same topic.
-Make sure subject-verb conjugation is correct in each sentence as well as the context of multiple lines.
-One of the most challenging parts of proofreading is rephrasing lines into natural English. Stylistically, these characters are high school kids so I encourage you think about how modern (American) kids talk with your word choices.
-Make sure you understand every line and it makes sense in context. If there's anything off, keep making PR notes to ask for clarification.

Another great option after learning cleaning is typesetting! You're probably pretty comfortable with photoshop at this stage and learning how to TS is really useful~

Feel free to re-apply for PR after you've gotten some practise. In the meantime, give the cleaner and typsetter guidelines a read! There are versions of photoshop for every computer, but the one we offer here is CS 6 for PC (I believe). I'm on a mac and I use a free older version that has most of the features. Adobe has pretty good coverage for all platforms though so I'm sure there's something for your computer unless it's a super slow netbook or something with small RAM and a slow core.

Thanks for applying, Nanami.
Unfortunately, I can't pass you as a PR right now. While I can tell you have a great grasp of natural spoken English, grammar still needs to be applied according to the guidelines. There were multiple mistakes in the MC, spelling and script sections so I'd recommend going over the guidelines and practicing with some grammar workbooks if you're still considering being a PR. However, we do really need help on cleaning and typesetting! Training is provided for those from scratch and we'd be happy to teach you if you're willing to learn.

Congrats, you pass the PR test! I'd recommend finishing PR training before going on to QC training because then you'll have one part down pat.
I'll have your training thread up soon so we'll continue there. Trainees typically finish 3 trial chapters with one of us before becoming full fledged staff.

Thanks for applying!

You did pretty well on the first two sections and were close to a pass on the script section. We want to deliver high quality scripts, so I'd like to see that you understand feedback and can apply it before I fully pass you.

-You've gotten most of the punctuation in the guidelines down, but make sure all lines end in proper English punctuation. When you come across a typed symbol, insert or copy & paste symbols instead so they look closer to the original and then add punctuation.
-Triple check for capitalization, spelling, punctuation and verb conjugation on all scripts! Make sure you're not capitalizing after a comma and all your verb tenses are appropriate for the line and across consecutive lines if they're on the same topic.
-One of the most challenging parts of proofreading is rephrasing lines into natural English. Stylistically, these characters are high school kids so I encourage you think about how modern kids talk with your word choices.
-Make sure you understand every line and it makes sense in context. If there's anything off, keep making PR notes to ask for clarification.

Let me know if you have any questions. Please post your revised script here when you're done.

Thanks for applying, Luna.

Unfortunately, I can't pass you as a PR right now. You did well in the first part but there were multiple errors in the spelling and script section. One of the most difficult parts about proofreading is rephrasing into natural English speech in addition to checking for proper grammar. You're free to look over your script and make changes to try again if you'd like, but we do really need help on typesetting too! Training is provided for typesetting from scratch and we'd be happy to teach you if you're willing to learn.
