I don't think the staff told you that with the purpose of telling you we're not still recruiting. Indeed we have many members in the Grammar Squad, the problem is they're not that active. For now Grammar Squad is half-dead even though it's one of the larger staff groups.

I didn't know that, but if you offered your help back then, I guess you could be accepted right away?

PS: I don't know whom you asked specifically, although the normal procedure is posting on the Recruitment Office.

Probably your request went unnoticed, sorry. Just added.

I thought you were added a week ago, and was vaguely sulking that you'd done diddly squat. Myyyy bad.

Opps - I wuz jus complainin'...

Okay! I'm on board. Where do I start and on what? I can't proof-read or edit my own stuff and I can't send this stuff off to my proof-readers or editors. They'd laugh at me (cos I'd tell them they wouldn't be getting paid).

I have set myself some targets here, Pandaaa too (when she gets round to it ), but the distraction of proof-reading would definitely be welcome.

I was told you were full, that's why I retracted my posts. I think I was in one of those "Pete's being an arsehole today because he didn't sleep for 4 days".
Cheers for the add anyway - I'm happy to help, but you know that.

On my good days, at least...

Pick any review that hasn't been used on the site yet - or is on the site but needs fixing - and make the neccesary corrections.
If someone already corrected it, check their corrected version. If you find no issues with it, leave a response that you verified it and it's good to go.
