I had to reopen this topic, sadly all our previous posts have AC'ed as well, which is what I wanted to avoid, that's mainly the purpose of this thread.

Now let's get to work. All texts required for Alpha 6 that were in proofreading have been finished, very good work everyone :), Grey and Artopod are still in active but nearing completion. I'll post more texts now and assign them, it is most likely that I won't be around for some time, so I expect you to carry out work without me breathing down your necks, I'll post two texts for each of you, me included.
Qonfused, I've used your heading for Vengeance ..../NewGeneration/Vengeance, keep it for the Eclipse, and I'll modify the Starfire.

One more note, Metric System, i've seen some of the other systems around, if you can make the conversions, scientific reports always use metric, and so do I :P

Sorry for that boss :blush1: . I'll post Artopod to proofread, not assigned to anyone in particular, just read and see what's to be changed.

Just a note guys, but if multiple versions of the same thing come about, then proofread them both - preferably the same person. Then, when it comes to the crunch, phase two will merge them, or one will get preference. Thank you for your attention, we will now return you to regular broadcast - 'Azrael's news'....

Ok, ok, I got it done. My AP english class is pretty tough (lot's of essays to write). The up side is that I can make a 5 paragraph paper in less than 40 minutes! Imagine how good of a CT I could make now.... :hmmm:

Good work, I'll review them today, closing all topics.
With these we're concluding Phase 1, as these are all the texts that were available for proofreading, further plans will be developed shortly.

Welcome back from the land of sun and sand.

I'm still here, and will keep watching this forum for more proofreading to be done... I don't watch a lot of the other forums though (I stay busy) (except possibly programming), so if it isn't here, I won't see it!

I'll post the texts again, proofread by me, as I made many modifications and will leave them there for 1 day, in case there are no further comments I'll mark them as finished.

And no, no pretty colors to notice my changes more easly, I have had a couple of busy days and proofread them in word, so I didn't even bother, besides, changes were numerous, so you'll have to work a little.

I've had a lot to do these days blehm, and 11 texts to proofread is a lot to do, I didn't even bother to type that, as sometimes I did, you don't have to proofread it again, just post if you think something is wrong.

New texts to proofread, no assignments this time, I want to see you working as a team.
As always, check for grammar/spelling/funny sentences, no rewrites unless the situation calls for it (a very very funny sounding sentence). Check for new names, headings, layouts. Check for coherency. Grab the latest text and proofread.
One week deadline, buckle up.

I can't think of a better incentive than that! Come and get dipstick to kill himself proofreading!!

I thought it would be better to have all the team do the work rather than just one person alone, if you feel like proofreading your help will be very appreciated, but please post in this forum along with the rest of the team for now.
Don't worry dip, there will come the moment when there will only be you, RS and me working in the texts :)

i can only proofread today, and then after that probably can't help much at all

Az,

I will be on vacation for the next week. I will try to get to looking at a few texts today, but my time is pretty tight also. So most likely it will be next week late before I can proof any more texts.

Rock on with your bad selves while I'm gone!! :rock:

Sorry guys I haven't been able to help much around, I had my first mid-term today, Geometry and Linear Algebra 1, studied all week and finished last night after 9 straight hours of reading that darn book and making exercises, went pretty well I think (hope). I'll try to catch up with the threads I already closed :) Physics 1 and Calculation 1 coming up, I think not as hard as these, after this next week I should be more open.

Well, I could say the same really :)

Let me see, French Oral went ok on Fri, but very shortly I will be indundated with exams :D Every subject I do has at least two exams :D All coming up within the next month or so.

After that, well, work experience, and finally holidays, (while working), but when the holidays arrive, I will switch up a few gears and get a rockin'!

You have had Astanayaxing, and Azraelation, but can you withstand the full might of dipstick's lethal attack? I think not. LOL

You had better be a'watchin' this space guys!

For me, yes, for Az no - I think he started in March, but I could be wrong.

The end is in sight, just barely, well, a pinprick of light - for me :D

My last official day of school is the 22nd July, although my 'official' last day is the 1st July :D Three straight weeks of skiving!

Well, two weeks of work experience, and a week at uni LOL

I started in March, I'm half way through the first semester, not even near the end. The problem is that the first year is the toughest, cause there are a lot of people and the University does it's best to try to drive people away, a LOT of people come, so everything is quite harder than it should be, they are indeed giving us a hard time, hopefully once I get to 2nd year, things should be easier and more enjoyable :)
