I'll put in an application as well this time.Tracker Profile: SherlockAbout Me:
I'm a guy who likes to have fun in doing anything in life, if not, most of the times, I feel it isn't worth doing. I'm a college student, in my last year of my Bachelors course. I also part-time as a proofreader/editor as I love doing it. Although I've been here for less than a year, I still love every moment spent on this site(which is a lot).I'm also in the process of learning HTML/CSS properly, so as to better myself in that.What I can contribute to Staff:
Since my expertise lies mostly in manga, I would probably be more suitable as a manga moderator. However, I can work as part of support staff too(if required). Also, I would be more than willing to slave for anime too, if required, provided I'm guided on the finer details. [I'm always willing to learn.]
Also, since I have free-time of around 4-5 hours which I can contribute to BBT[I lurk a lot more], I can help out wherever required.
Now as to the default requirements..Familiar with our Wiki info:
I am rather familiar with the wiki. Haven't run afoul of any rules in a major way since my first upload. I also am a part of the Wiki Expansion Project[fixed half of the keywords before RL got in the way].Familiar with our torrent offer system:
Yes, I'm rather familiar with how the Offer system works, since I tend to upload manga quite frequently.Knows the difference between audio/video formats:
I wouldn't say that I'm an expert, but yes, I do know enough about them to carry my own weight around here. I'm always willing to learn more though.Knows how to make a comparison of releases:
I'm not sure of my expertise in this [seeing as I don't make much(any) anime offers], but looking at other's comparisions and the recommendations for comparisons on various offers has atleast left me with enough info on what to take comparisons of..[Light/Dark Scenes etc]Respectable, not a douche:
I am, and always will claim to be a respectable guy and am generally polite. However, that's still up for others to decide.Must know how to use IRC. This is our main form of contact:
Well, I do know how to use IRC [used to lurk on #themanaworld] and still use XDCC quite frequently for files to my offers. So yes, I'm quite familiar with IRC.As always, can speak coherent English:
I work as a part-time proofreader/editor in RL, so I'm good at English. I am also an incurable grammar-freak.Knows HTML/php coding:
I'm okay with HTML/CSS. Although I confess to frequently asking blubart and Reesebiz for descriptions[and description help], I can atleast wade through codes myself to effect any minor changes as necessary.Freezing
, Samurai Deeper Kyo
, Shinryaku! Ika Musume
are some of the ones I've done on my own, although I've borrowed elements from other's descriptions.Offered/Adopted a torrent before:
Quite frequently, however, almost all of them are manga[along with artbooks].Satoshi Collection
comes to mind, although I had to make a re-offer for it as per Staff advice.Has a fast/respectable connection:
I submit I have a rather bad connection [Actual Down/Up speeds are around 60 KBp/s normally.], so this may count against me.
Again, I confess to be a manga freak[my uploads and adoptions are mostly only this], so it may count against me. I don't tend to offer anime as 1.
I have a bad connection and 2.
There are lots of dedicated uploaders for it, unlike manga. I love manga and fell in love with it ever since my first reads[Hetakoi, Love Hina and Change 123]. Clannad and Clannad-AS are amongst my favourite anime though.
That's about me and my profile. Thank you for reading.
