Hmmm… you sure you've posted the right link? This application looks identical to the previous one (the text is just as oversized).

This time it improved enough to send it to the Head Typesetter, but it still needs polishing to earn a pass. This is his assessment:

If you decide to resubmit, you don't need to open a new thread, you can just post it in this one. Good luck!

Alright, I appreciate the feedback. I spent some time going over the test and adjusting what I had. Made an effort to make use of rulers and even the shape tool to try and properly position my text.

All right, you pass! There were some remaining centering issues on pages 3 and 4, but nothing serious and you'll improve with practice.

I've upgraded you to staff and will write you a proper welcome message as soon as I hear from the typesetter who wanted to be replaced if we can give you the next chapter of Shounen Y right away. You can look around in the staff-only area, make yourself at home, and welcome to Death Toll! ^_^

For now, please set your email notification options to be notified when you have a PM in your inbox there: go to the User control panel (the small person icon at the top right, to the left of the envelope), then Board Preferences>Edit Notification Options. On the line "Someone sends you a private message" (the last one), check both boxes.

Return to “Editing”
