Application for Interviews or Articles.

Reason- I really like to interview and write articles on things. I am a non biased person and enjoy helping others learn through what I might have to say about issues, or what others would like to hear from someone else. I would like to help out the CR community and I think magazines are something that I would be good at. I contributed in making one in 10th grade, I was the proofreader/grammar police, I also wrote an article on allergies, then later I wrote a 6 page research paper on it.
Sample, well All i got is the 6 page research paper on it because the article is on my old comp. If you wan't I can PM you the whole paper (It's long though)

I think a CR magazine is a great idea, it makes this place more like a community. Great idea ^_^

This is awesome.

Application for: Reviewer (preferably music).
Why are you interested in doing this? Throughout high school I was one of the editors for the newspaper & loved writing articles. Since March of last year I've been running a rotation journal on LJ where I, not only upload music, but also write lengthy reviews about each song/single/album. It's something I absolutely love doing. Also (going back to my rotation journal for a second), I tend to do features on a lot of indies/unknown Japanese bands. Going through the 'favorite japanese bands' thread, it's apparent that the only Japanese bands the majority of people here are aware of are bands that have done OPs/EDs for anime series. I'd love to be able to introduce people to some really great bands that they'd otherwise be missing out on.
A Sample: ._. I'm not sure if you have a livejournal or not, but if so, you can go read some of my reviews in my rotation journal.
Posted 5/18/07
That's a good idea. Hey, let's make an interview about Shinji as the first issue of the magazine.

@Whatsome - I intend on putting the articles etc together in a first post of a new thread. Then members can read and comment on that issue by posting there ^-^. I'm currently not sure whether a new thread will be made for each issue (and the old locked) or the first post edited. ^-^

@lokita and digs - good applications, thankyou! ^-^

i like the idea
Posted 5/18/07
Application for: Assistant!
Why are you interested in doing this? Do I have to try and sell myself? haha Well organisation comes easily to me so I think I should be at least a little useful in helping out Crunchyroller. I have tons of free time to waste and I won't be going anywhere anytime soon =]
Sample: um...well not sure how I could give you a sample... but I have some experience in these kind of things. I was editor for our year's Yearbook and I loved doing it. I had to proof read people's articles, organise the layout, meet deadlines [which was the worst], and sort out finances ie meet a budget..although that doesn't really help here so not sure why I've got it in....Also I wrote articles for the school website regarding events that were going on...

Loving the idea Steffi! *cheers you on*

Application for - Interviewer
Reason - I really like asking questions. My questions will be intelligent and mature. Most of the time anyways. I tend to be good with different people so it wouldn't be a problem interviewing people I don't know anything about. I'm also very open minded and don't really have any negativities towards anything.
Sample - I don't have anything for you here. Sorry.

I would love to do this, but I'm afraid I'm not exactly reliable when it comes to online commitments. I tend to pick up an idea, fiddle with it and then walk off for several days.
The best I could be is a freelance contributor for things like articles, book reviews(I have experience in that actually), news coverage and the like. If you ever need something like that then I'm open.

To lessen the "Evil" aspect in "assistant" you should change that title to "Assistant Editor" Sounds more professional, and It makes sense since it's basically what you just described.

You might also want to find some people who are willing to do some photography, have user-submitted mail, art contests, someone as "man in the crowd," or who watches the opinions, trends and evolution of the CR forums and user comments. The possibilities are endless.

^_^; Thank you, madam. Please let me know if you need to see a sample. I've got a bunch of new singles/albums that were recently released, so I could easily write up a review if you need to see what my reviews are like.

Applicaton for Articles or Featured Drama/Anime, maybe Reviewer
Why I am interested in doing this!?

Articles (What I probably want the MOST)
Because I am a fair person, good to all good. Bad to all bad. Never afraid to give out the truth, but always watch my language to best it can to have the best effect (It may sometimes have bad language, but it's mostly to point out reality. I'm not really into self complimenting by the way.) I'm believe I'm somewhat more intelligent than most people on CR (I'm not calling you guys stupid :P), but of course I'm 100% sure I'm not perfect. I mostly always write in paragraphs, when it's necessary. I don't write too much content just to make it a paragraph. I love to educate the people of CR, and not much of a political person. But other than that, I think I'm good!
[SAMPLE]: You can find it in just about every thread that actually makes a difference to this world. IE Sexual Orientation (haters everywhere... lesbian lovers but gay haters... hmm doesn't make sense imo), and How to punish a child (filled with people who thinking beating is ok as long as the child doesn't get bruised!). I told you reasons why I go to those threads, so you'd have a hint of the other threads I posted in. And of course I post in the useless threads too :P.

Feature Anime/Drama
I watch dramas, and japanese animations. It can be good, bad, and alright. We know the load of Crunchyroll watches the same group of anime, and I believe I am capable of showing them OTHERS besides Ouran, Naruto, and Bleach. Which I've never watched but, there are more shows than those. The featured anime on the main page is mostly the semi-new episodes of Naruto all the time, Bleach, and other videos that are not related to anime. And of course the Magazine's Featured Items should be diffrent.

Now for Dramas, I also am a huge fan. And there is also a group of dramas that everyone has seen, that I believe are good, but not amazing. Almost every drama girl has watched Hana Yori Dango, I've watched to too, as a guy. It's really a good drama, but of course same for anime, there are STILL more shows than that. (Sadly my brain is addicted to J-dramas, because of the phrases, I somehow remember.) And dramas are barely on the front page, as featured.
[SAMPLE]: The Favorite Drama thread, and maybe the Favorite Anime thread? I recently posted on the Favorite Drama thread with thoughts on the series'.

Maybe Reviewer
I watch anime, and dramas. Lots of them (in my opinion), but I don't think as much as some of the people. I see the flaws in anime/dramas that I do not like, some underreacting, overreacting, and stupidity that probably wasn't meant to happen. Bad acting, bad choice in actor/actress looks/pairing and of course is it even original? Is this another show, with a very similar plot as others? That's why I MAY BE qualified to a reviewer (if you want me :P.) Note: I don't think I am that qualified but maybe you think I am :P.

[Edited to add example!]
