    Oh no, don't do that. We were just saying that you're hard to understand.

    Im gonna take the test soon.

    I dont have any experience cleaning manga. Altho i have scanned and cleaned some american comics. But most of them were in color.

    Also, do you have to do all the pages in the test? Because DAYUM! Those blue dragon pages were shitty.

    Color pages are very hard to clean.

    Yes, you have to do all the pages in the test. We need to know what you can do. However, once you're in the group, you can choose the manga you want to work on.

    Hi,
    you guys might know me if you follow the Eyeshield 21 manga. I'm the one who tries to clean and typeset the newest Eyeshield 21 chapters. I will do just the type setting test. I've been trying to get into a real scanlation group for ages but I never got accepted. The editor places are most often full and nobody wants another helper/supporter. So I hope I can impress you guys. :-) I will edit this post once I'm done with the test.

    I'm not able to download the type-setting test! And just in case you haven't noticed yet. I will only do the type-setting test because I'm only good at fast scanlations and don't have enough time (or passion) to do HQ scans ( or sitting on one page for an hour ). Hope you understand it and hopefully you're still looking for type-setters.

    Sorry about the link, Daryl. I'm going to try and fix it. But unfortunately we don't need typesetters at this moment. What we do need are cleaners. Keep in mind, though, that you probably won't be working by yourself on the scans (which are better than Jump scans anyway). Also, we don't do speed-scanlations which offers you a somewhat larger frame of time to work with. So I hope you'll reconsider and try the cleaning test. Think about it.

    It's photographs of blackboard drawings. A bitch to edit, hence why it's taking so long.

    Even after the long explanation, i still don't know how you ended up with "Strays" as a groupname.
    Has it anything to do with your affection for cats?

    Good question. I can't believe I forgot to mention this. Our flagship manga is Vagabond. From Vagabond, comes Stray with a plural because it's a group. That's basically the story. Also we do rather unknown manga, which strays from the mainstream.

    I love the title of this thread! +your groups name, and your projects. I also like the fact that you stay serious about this, Siedhr!

    I expect more Vagabond releases, I'm a huge fan of the manga. Thanks to Neo for introducing it to me ^^

    Keep up the good job.
