FKMTkrazy Needs Your Help!

Okay, after waiting around for a while for people to get things done to no success, I've decided that it's time we get some more help to get this group back on its feet. We're okay for Typesetters as far as I can tell, but since cleaning is such a taxing job I've decided that we should get as many cleaners as possible. No longer will we be having a single cleaner for each series, it's clear to me now that there is a much higher need for cleaners than any of the other two jobs. I plan to get as many people as possible to clean, so we can have multiple chapters of each series being worked on at once. Since cleaning does take a lot of time and effort, I think that's for the best.

Now, this is not to say that we'll be taking just anyone who says they want to help out cleaning. I'm afraid you'll have to prove it to me by cleaning the next chapter of Akagi. To help you, I have included with the chapter a few tips that I've gathered over the years. The link to the chapter is at the end of this post. It's quite a lot of text, but I've included some images and even an example to give you an idea of what I need you to do. Try and do your best, so long as you put in a good amount of effort I'm willing to put you on the team.

Also, because of this boom of cleaners, we MAY need a few more typesetters to compensate. I'm not sure, but if cleaning seems too daunting to you you can try your hand at typesetting. I've included some fonts and the script in the rar. The link to that is at the end of the post, as well.

So yeah, sorry for the month-long absence, I don't really have a good excuse or anything, I just took some time off. While all of you are working I'll be cranking out some translations so we can get back to it with a bang. On a similar note, I've closed the donations box for now. It's probably unrelated to the drop in releases, but it did signal the start of the fall for us, so we may as well just get rid of it altogether. If enough people want it back up later, I'll reinstate it.

Oh, and should we try for a Mahjong Day this Saturday? I think we should try for a Mahjong Day this saturday.
