First and foremost, I would like to apologize for the inactivity of the group. It's completely ridiculous. But I have a lot to critiue and i don't know where my admins are hiding. So I'd like to bring on some new ones.

General Contributor Expectations

Contributor applications will be considered and voted on by all of the current admins. Before applying, make you you understand what it is we'll be asking you to do.


:bulletred: Welcome new members.
:bulletblack: Critiques!
:bulletred: Help to plan prompts and other events.  
:bulletblack: Devote a good amount of time to the group.


The Application Process

Each application should be sent via note to the group. If you have issues sending a note to the group, go ahead and send your application via note to MadHat11D6. We will let you know via note that your application has been received and we will tell you our decision (hopefully) within a week.  

What is your experience with administrating groups (or judging a contests, or any leadership role etc.)?
This is just so we know how how much we'll need to teach you or how much your time might be split if you admin in other groups as well.

How often are you on dA?
So we know about how much time you can put into the group. It doesn't need to be a huge amount.

What kinds of pieces do you find are easiest for you to critique?
Please link us to an example of a fairly recent critique you've given on a literature piece.

Tell us about yourself
The admins in this group work well together because we are very familiar with each other. Tell us a little bit about you so we can start to build familiarity with you as well!

What do you believe to be the strongest piece in your gallery?
Give us a link!


Thanks!

I hate winter this winter. more later maybe.

I have seen this group founder and detest such carnage. I'd hoped others would pick up the slack since I can be a flake at times. It seems, however, that I am only as much of a flake as the next person.

I have 2 questions:

*  Help to plan prompts and other events. 

Do I have to attend and participate in such events? they often happen when I am not able to attend.

*  Devote a good amount of time to the group

by percentage, how much of my existing time here is expected to be consumed by this?  or by minimum hours per week? 

ok, fine, that's 3; but the last 2 are sort-of one-or-the-other. still, if you haven't had multiple-essay tests, I suppose you wouldn't understand.

You wouldn't have to participate in prompts. But you would probably help in at least a couple of the workshops (depending on your comfort zone and availability) and be part of judging in contests if we do any. I don't like to say 'we'll be doing this at 5pm friday' or something like that, because I can never make those sorts of things, mostly because of the time zone I'm in. I mostly work with deadlines. 

Well, I don't know about your other engagements so I can't approximate a percentage, but it would probably only be around 2-3 hours a week. 

(I have had multiple essay tests, and I do understand)

I might think about applying. Maybe. Not the best of writers, honestly. Working on it though. I adore writing, more than I do art, I think. Maybe we should talk a bit on the subject? c:

For sure. You can note me if you like. I think helping to run a group might be a nice challenge to help you improve, if you're up to it. Administrating groups has actually helped me a lot. That and getting really active in the dA community. Anywho, we can chat here or you can pop me a note with questions or any opening some form of discussion or what have you.

I don't really have questions. Sorry for the late reply by the way, I've been pretty.. lazy on doing things recently. How about I send in an application and we can talk then?

Oh I could be one. I am on every second day and I can do critiques pretty well (I tend to like short stories or poems). I can put a large amount of my time into the group when i am online and I love to read so reading through big galleries and welcoming new members of the group should be a breeze. I am very happy and get along great with others, if that description helps in anyway. I hope I can be an admin of the group.

I've started taking a look at your galley. Expect a couple of critiques coming your way. =) Could you perhaps comment with a link of a critique you have done so I can wee where you're at with that?

I did one really quick and short. [link] I will definitely do longer and more complex critiques if I am made an admin. Should I do another one that is longer for you or...?

Those are actually some strong suggestions. Nice and concise. The next time you do a critique, you should also consider some of the lit devices (such as metaphors and such). try to analyze the piece a little bit. Critiques are a lot easier when the person has outlined what they worry about in the piece. Try this one: [link]. There aren't actually many questions, but the author asks for flow, spelling/grammar errors, and anything else you'd like to add. =)

well, i'm on about once a day, and i'm OK at critiquing, but i'm either to nice or to harsh.... don't really have to much experience except for proofreading peoples stuff from school. i would like to get better though. i also don't have any admins experience, but i learn fast.

Hi there

I am interested, however I do not have a premium membership, does that make a difference? I do plan to get one maybe after Christmas when I have more money spare.

I don't have much experience critiquing, but I will browse through the folders and do one to send you if that's any good.

Let me know if it is worth me applying, and is there a deadline for applications.

Thanks

Hello =)

You don't need a premium membership. We usually just send critiques via comment, note, or email depending on how thorough we get. We can go over with you how to do a critique if you'd like. Like, critiquing your critique. =D If you do critique something, please critique it out of the Critiqued folder.

It's definitely worth applying, and we don't really have a deadline as of yet, just try to get back with the info ASAP.

:thumbsup:

Neither do I. We just leave a critique via comment. I can go over with you how we like critiques to be done, too. Most of the people that ask for critiques don't have a premium membership either so...yeah. You can definitely still apply. ^_^
