Staff Introduction: Hi!
« on: May 24, 2009, 05 AM »
Hey there.  Rebmastu said I ought to come over to this forum and introduce myself, so, er, hi! I'm Caireach.  I'll be helping with QC/proofreading.  I'm kind of odd, because I actually enjoy going over things line by line and seeing what's awkwardly phrased or just doesn't quite sound natural.  I even do it to my own writing, which is one of the reasons I almost never get anything finished.  Also, let's see... I've loved Slayers since 2000, and I've really enjoyed the scanlations here, so I'm pretty thrilled to be able to help out.  Also, I like cheese.  Everything else is a secret not really that important, for now, I guess.  :3

Hey, welcome to the team Caireach! It's good to finally have another QC on board, since being the final step to a good release can be kind of stressful~ But let's work together!  :numnumgiri: As the only two QCs on board, we're now partners in crime! Let's GOOO!! :wahwahwah:

Tom and I were blasting the chat box the other night trying to attract your attention xD You should post in there! (we have a lot of staff discussion in there, too, and it does get confusing for some people  :cuteface:)

Yeah! Welcome to the team! Enjoy tearing apart my already mediocre translations, lawl. I used to be such a good writer, too...  :weepygiri:

ANYWAY, yeah! Chatbox is where it's AT!
This is the first face you will see in hell.

Ahaha, sorry about the chatbox.  I have this bad habit of leaving things open in one tab on my browser while working on something entirely different... though I did catch a few conversations floating by, about zombie pirates and Bigfoot, or something like that. 

Translating and writing are seriously two different things, I think-- granted, I've done a lot more writing than I have translating, so I might be kind of talking out of my arse here, but the skills don't seem to cross over from one to the other as easily as some people think they do.  I've known some people who weren't so great at writing, or weren't when I knew them, but were really good at translating things into natural-sounding English right away.  So, erm, don't worry too much? I think it's normal for most translations to come out a little awkward in the first round, even for people who are normally good with writing.

Oh wow. Another person to work to their own limit during their free time to provide me with 10 minutes worth of joy. I'm thrilled to meet you, and I look forward to appreciating your work in the future.
