I think mine was closest to the ad/graphic design part, so I will take the graphic design stuff for a while lol. Also I might be a temp person for a while since it doesn't seem anyone is applying for that section at all. But we shall see, what becomes of it for now.

Application for: Drama
Reason: I'm a drama-freak and I have no life (just joking), so I have tons of time to work on the magazine. I've seen taiwanese, japanese and korean dramas, so it's not like i only watch one partiquliar group. I always finish a drama (even though it may take a while), so I won't only judge the first episodes. In junior high I wrote a lot of articles for the school newspaper, but sadly there weren't any vacancies open in high school.
Sample I don't really have a sample, but I could write something about a drama, just name one and I'll watch the first episodes if I haven't seen it yet :]

I totally love the idea =D

ah! this is up and stickied while i was away~~ ... give me some time.. i'll write my application (even though you know a lot already...^^)

* when is the deadline for application?

edit: i am applying for Featured Music/Drama. (^ seems to be a good applicant.. i'd be glad to take music~ ^^) *application in writing...*

edit2: application
Position for Featured Music/Drama
(we've got another good applicant for drama... so i'll be glad to take music ^^)
Why are you interested in doing this?
~ about why to apply at all:
* it's a great idea from steffi and she puts a great amount of time and effort into developing this, that makes me want to join the future team and make this happen!
~ about why I'm applying for the positions:
*music: I enjoy listening to asian music! I think I listen to asian music more than american/european music. ^^ I'm an MV uploader too, even though I will not make them features for that reason. I would really like to point out great songs/MVs that many people might fail to notice and to spread the love of great songs/MVs that might already be pretty well known.
*drama: I enjoy watching asian dramas. I mainly watch Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean, and a little bit of Chinese dramas (i've actually seen some of HK dramas too). additionally, I speak Mandarin too.. i suppose that helps me in appeciating and understanding asian dramas just a bit more ^^
Sample ~ i'll leave this blank for now... (unless you want me to PM you an example featured list?)

Probably when there is a load of applicants?

Also S_j_b, I believe the magazine is a great idea :P.... maybe we can make it into big time one day. And be the #1 Anime/Drama/CrunchyNews magazine in the english speaking world. "[insert anime name] - A rip off of [another anime] or not? The Crunchazine (hint hint, I'm suggesting a name :P) tells their thoughts!"

Application for Gaming
Why are you interested in doing this? Having been an advent gamer nearly all my life I really enjoy all aspects of gaming. Combined with that is my love of writing, whether its articles, reviews, summaries or editing, I'm there.
A Sample - Well I am currently the editor of the games and technology section of my school newspaper. If you need samples then send me a pm. I also post news on the gaming news section of CR.

Edit: In any case, I'm practically fine with anything so long as it doesn't deal with art related material lol.

Thank you and have a nice day!

Application for: Music Reviewer

Why are you interested in doing this?
Well, I am an avid music collector. I try to expand my list of musical interests everyday and I enjoy music too much that it's not healthy. I want to share this obsession with others and to help them understand that not all music of a certain genre is bad [i.e. stereotyping rap/ hip-hop music as crap or rock as too heavy.] I also enjoy writing for the masses and I'll try not to demean a Top 40 popstar/rock group too much.

Example:
Well, I don't really have any examples on hand since I haven't worked in a newspaper before. If you do need samples of my writing though, I'll happily provide that. I'm also good with working with others - I used to be part of a manga scanlating group, so I'm quite familiar with deadlines as well.

Anyways. Good luck with the idea! It sounds truly great~

This is a nice idea! Especially having a review for animes and dramas. I always thought that the description posted weren't enough especially when a title looks interesting. Ive always google them and read about them in wikipedia, bt when it comes up as only a stub or listing of stats then it gets frustrating. Then I try reading fellow CRollers comments on the first and last videos, but it backfires on me sometimes coz people couldn't help but post spoilers which totally ruin the shows for me and probably to others as well.

a review would be greatly appreciated and probably a rating scale???

Im very interested in applying but at the moment I have other commitments.Maybe when im done with my exams and start my summer holidays...it sounds a lot of fun!

This is so cool Steffi! :lol:

application for Advertising and Grphics
why?
I'm a part time graphics designer, that's why. Well, photographer and graphics designer. Haven't made a design yet using cartoons and the like (since i'm used to real media), but I think I can manage it. I'm currently working on album art for my Choir's upcoming CD and a wedding invitation (which I decided to make a "CD" also since the couple asked for something different ~ and I thought it a time saving measure since I used the same template as the CD for my choir... evil)
Sample
I'm minimalist at heart:


poster for one of my Choir's concerts where we had a "movie soundtracks" theme. I loved this concert. :D


Another concert photo. This was a joint concert and the design was made at the last minute since the idiots in charge didn't know a thing.


Design for a Local Mall brochure, Tiendesitas


This is the wedding CD design... still preliminary since it has placeholder text. :P

Sorry for the excess number of pics, but each poster has a differnet design style, which shows I'm flexible. :D


EDIT: I'm also willing to help with editorial work (checking grammar and the like in reviews and articles). I'm very meticulous in grammar since I taught english and worked for the school Year book. hehe.

I will go ahead and make an application just encase someone better comes along, even if I would only be holding it on temp basis

edit: O.o edsamac's stuff is good, go with him

Application for: Graphic designer

Reason: I enjoy working with digital images, I have taken a year of photography which delved into the world of digital design briefly though during that time I picked up much. This year I took digital photography which has as much to do with digital design as actual photography. Next year I am taking digital design. Plus I would like to be able to help The Crunchyroller out, and the role of graphic designer seemed the thing I am most experienced at. Plus I would hate to see the idea that Steffie got from a discussion between me and Pen die.

Examples:
I don't really have any at the moment I am on my third computer hard drive in the past month or so. I do have some of my digital photo stuffs under my photo page. I will be willing to help out who ever ends up replacing me and maybe contribute to some of the art parts of The Crunchyroller, when ever I get the time.

I'd love to work on the Featured Anime section and come up with reviews, given I have the time to devote to it. I'd be the one recommending the obscure stuff.

We'll see how it goes I guess.

Oh, why not...

Application for: Drama and/or Music
Reason: Well I'm an addict -_- And I do live in a pathetic little town in the middle of nowhere, so I'm usually on the computer watching dramas, animes, and listening to music anyway. I've seen many dramas so far, but mainly Chinese/Tiawanese (watching with my family or by myself) since it's in my language, and maybe now I can put that to some good use.
Samples: Not exactly sure what to type here...but I do seem to have a specialty for finding descriptions for a certain show. I can also type up a pretty decent summary and review for certain dramas or music. I've never actually worked for a newspaper before, but I learn quick. ^-^

I do need to catch up with a few shows since I never have enough time during school season. I'm usually distracted with meaningless homework given to me by dictators.
I have a few weeks left of school until my finals, so I won't be available every second, but I do get on the computer every now and then. Summer's not gonna be a problem since I'll be vacationless -_-. I do go to work everyday though.
