Unfortunate time to log on; you'll have to wait a few hours for a test, most of the members won't be online for a few more hours (or so the past would dictate).
Is there any project in particular you are aiming for? I think we might be getting one or two more soon, but we're always in need of more translators lol.

Oh, too bad. I would have to do the test tomorrow then. I only have 2 more hours to spare.

umm... i dunno about translating but I'm not looking to Typeset a particular manga. Anything's good as long as it isn't josei or shoujo or yaoi. I'm not comfortable with those Razz

Lol relax, there's no yaoi here (for which I am very thankful).
We haven't got anything set in stone for the next project, but from my own observation we're leaning towards another shounen manga. Really you'll have to wait for Tran Linh to log on before figuring out which project you'll be on.

And I say that under the assumption that you'll pass; the fact that you have previous experience with other groups is your assurance of that already.

Hi Smile, you want to be a typesetters?
Our group is lacking a regular typesetter for these series:

_ Higanjima. (this one is pretty weird, I can't remember how many typesetter has registered for this manga, and after several chapters, they all disappeared.)
http://www.mangafox.com/manga/higanjima/
_ Shuukyuu Shoujo.
http://www.mangafox.com/manga/shuukyuu_shoujo
_ Ibitsu.
http://www.mangafox.com/manga/ibitsu_okada_kazuto
_ Love Junkies. (this one, i'm not sure since its fate is not decided yet because we are seriously lacking the staff for this)
http://www.mangafox.com/manga/love_junkies/

And some new projects. As you can see, it's all shounen (or rather seinen), no shoujo in the list. (although we do have shoujo projects (and I intend to expand in Shoujo projects too)
That's a general summary for projects in need of staff.
Take your pick Smile , if you can't then I would prefer you do Shuukyuu Shoujo or Ibitsu or both (if you can Very Happy )
Anyways, I'm in charge of translation and new projects. You will have to wait for Demonspawn or Rakan to give you a test, and then pass it. If you pass those tests, you are in, good luck.

And i think i'll do the tests tomorrow after breakfast or something. I hope i pass. Oh and can you tell me what fonts to use on what occasions? And if you guys have your own way in typesetting stuff, let me know so i can adjust.

Thanks!

it really depends...seriously, you don't want to know about the fonts that InnocenceInDeath and Synnminion are using for project Love So Life Razz
But normal one, I think it's wild word, no? and Demonspawn wrote a guide outside the guide to typeset in this sub-forum, I think Smile. But again, i'm the last person who you want to ask about typesetting since I know next to nothing about it xD. Other typesetters will surely satisfy your question though :3

7 pounds? Funny stuff, I only remember 7 pounds for Will Smith who has his face all over the poster, moreover, his name's size is = the name's of the movie xD

Anyways, nice to meet you too Smile

...we don't use THAT many fonts, Tran.
...Okay, maybe we do. But that's because it's shoujo. (And it's totally my fault)

Shounen projects use wild words, wild words bold, deathrattle bb (and feast of flesh for higanjima). So only really 2-3.

nah, actually, I like the current fonts for Love So Life Smile, it looks really cute and eye-candy Smile. Right, I forgot to ask a question, how did you find the fonts that fits Love So Life? don't tell me you went through all the font...

Lol I can't I had all four of my wisdom teeth ripped out yesterday, but damn, from what I heard about people on T3's I don't have any of the side effects :/ I feel normal which is weird, but my sleeping patterns are totally skewed.

Thanks Haruhi and Dreams for the warm welcome Very Happy

@Innocence Thanks for the info. Good thing i already have them all in my Font Manager, so no need to download. Anyways, what fonts do we use on:
-Thoughts? aaaaand do we use 545454(or 5b5b5b) color + italicize on them?
-Translator/Editor Notes
-Text in Boxes
-SFXs
-Electronic/Digital sounds

@demonspawn wow 4 wisdom teeth!? That's gotta hurt like hell xD I'll do start doing the test now, then.

Wild words
I tend to italicize the font for thoughts.

just use standard wild words for notes but put them outside of a panel.

wild words for text boxes

depends on the sfx :/
I tend to use deathrattle bb a lot tho...

I'd classify those under sfx...

And no I was put under for the operation so I woke up after it was over :D And Good luck!

Done! i used wild words plus italics for the SFXs though. Hope that's alright.

Here it is. It's in PSD so it's easier to check and edit.
Typeset test

Your font could be larger but I don't have a problem with how it is. So you pass.

Welcome to the group, would you like to work on

Love Junkies (I'm cleaning and typesetting it {temporarily} but we need a regular typesetter and cleaner)

Higanjima (all our typesetters keep vanishing... it's not hard to typeset tho... :/ kinda mind boggling)

Shuukyuu Shoujo (I don't work on it so I don't know it's status but I believe it has a regular typesetter working on it.)

Ibitsu (I believe this one also needs a regular typesetter to work on it)

Higanjima (all our typesetters keep vanishing... it's not hard to typeset tho... :/ kinda mind boggling as to why they're vanishing)

Shuukyuu Shoujo (I don't work on it so I don't know it's status but I believe it has a regular typesetter working on it. Diwrno if I am correct)

Nyotai-ka (You can try to pry it from my cold dead hands. I doubt you'll succeed tho X3)

Well, I've been told that not overcrowding the bubble is the way to go. I could change it, but if its fine with you guys then its alright xD


hmm.. i was eyeing Shukyuu Shoujo earlier but if it has typesetter already then i'll go for... Higanjima. Even though i smell a vanishing CURSE on it. lol.
so, 1st pick is Shukyuu, 2nd is Higanjima and for back-up, anything available Very Happy
