We are looking for Quality Checkers with advance skills in Photoshop, a good grasp on the English Language, and a trained eye in Scanlation.
What a Quality Checker is expected to do:
- Go through the typeset chapter page by page
- Correct all grammatical mistakes that the Proofreader has missed
- Make sure the spelling and translation of special terms are consistent with previous chapters
- Make sure the images are straightened and cropped properly (watch out for white edges), and are in the right dimensions
- Make sure fonts are appropriately used and in the right size
- Make sure the line breaks are in appropriate places
- Watch out for un-centred bubbles
- Export all psds into jpegs
- Make sure the pages are named correctly and in the right order
- Compress the final product and upload to our server
- In short, make sure the files look SHARP
To become a QCer in our group you'll have to pass the proofer, the cleaner and the typesetter tests, and also be willing to work with most of our projects
(Unless you are already an experienced QC in scanlation, in which case send us an email and we will talk about it :)
Also, you have 1-3 days to submit a QCed chapter ~ Don't worry, there won't be too many editing mistakes for you to fix because our cleaners and typesetters are very competent ^_^
Send your application to joinegs[at]gmail.com and you'll hear from us as soon as possible! (within 3-7 days)
Please have this as the Subject of your application email:

Why would you like to join Easy Going Scans?
Tell us a bit about yourself, where you're from, why you chose our group to apply for this position, and how you came across our group
Important 1: The downloaded files are .rar archives, so you will need a program to open such files, e.g. as winrar or 7-zip for windows, or unrarx for mac.
Important 2: All the files that you will send us must be in a .rar or .zip format. Upload the files to mediafire.com or sendspace.com or dropbox and send us a link.
We would like to let everyone interested know that we are a nice and warm group with all sorts of “Easy Going” people.
We are looking for more staff atm, but we are only looking for reliable and trustworthy individuals who might be willing to work with us in the long term.
So if you can see yourself in this description, we would love to have you as long as you pass our test and the trial period.
Note that Easy Going scans is a NON profitable group so all the staff are doing volunteer (i.e. unpaid) work. We do it by the fans for the fans!
To become a full member at EGS you must pass a trial period of 5 chapters. Those 5 chapters will be from our actual series, your choice as to which. They will be released and you will be credited for them.
EGS full members have complete access to our FTP and can read ahead every project they want.
Also, we would like anyone who apply to us to check their mail at least ONCE PER DAY or frequent our IRC regularly, so it would be highly appreciated if an applicant who is unfamiliar with IRC is willing to learn how to use it.
We'll give a reply to anyone who e-mails us whether he/she passes the test or not.
Thank you all.
