    Sorry to all those who had their hopes up that i'd be accepted and Dreamland would start being released again...unfortunately I was not good enough and after my 3 chapter trial period I have been rejected. While I'm disappointed in the results, I can only hope that someone else will step up and help clean Dreamland, its a great story that deserves to be told.

    Good luck to you guys at EGscans, hope you find someone you deem worthy enough to work with you on this project.

      Thanks for giving it a shot. ^^

      If you're still inclined towards scanlation, you can always try to pick up experience in other groups.

        To be honest, not really, was interested in reviving Dreamland :) , I have limited time and just had to try and help bring it back...to be honest, I only thought you guys needed a cleaner at first when i started the trial, it wasn't until I started that I was told I would need to redraw as well...though I thought that my redraws were pretty darn good for someone with absolutely no experience :) Anyway, hope you guys find someone.

          the level of redrawing needed for Dreamland is really low... it means that any cleaner should be able to do them. you dont need a redrawer for them. As the one needed to judge your work, it was damn painful to my eyes... i could tell right away you dont have any experience redarwing.
          the only way to get better is to work on it. keep trying and redraw as much as you can.
          we cant have someone fix it everytime- sometimes it is harder to fix than just redo the whole thing.
          your crazy cleaner~

            Hey, I get it, you didn't like the level of my work, but I never said i was good, I said I had experience with photoshop and mentioned a bunch of times that this was my first time cleaning and redrawing...I don't have a particular passion in cleaning and redrawing, i just wanted there to be a passable version of dreamland circulating again, and while my redrawing was at absolute beginner, though the same level as the test and noone told me to change any of it for my trial, but regardless i'm not trying to change your standard, but maybe since dreamland almost never comes out, you could have taken the help and provided slightly lower quality redraws, but a consistent release, because say what you will about my redrawing...not arguing with you thats its not good...my cleaning was.

            I know I don't speak for just myself saying that a lot of people would be happy to just see dreamland come out...and lets face it really wasn't that bad that it would be painful to your eyes...why not release the chapters i did and let people decide with a poll or something.

            Whatever you decide know that I don't hold anything against you regardless of what you guys decide and decided. Just wanted to be of a bit of help and get one of my favorites back in rotation.

            Good luck guys.

              I have this tutorial left over from back when I was part of RS.

              https://randomscanlations.wordpress....ing-tutorials/

              As far as having a readable chapter goes, I know there are a few on MangaFox that did some but it's pretty crappy and uses LQ raws. We have a standard of being a high quality group and this is something we stick by. Personally, I don't touch anything unless I can look back on it a few years later and be proud of my work. I even re-scanlated 12 chapters of Yongbi when I bought the HQ Korean raws because I wasn't satisfied with their quality. I guess we just have different philosophies when it comes to scanlation.

              Anyway, if you want shit to practice with, I have Dreamland raws of a previous volume right here : https://www.mediafire.com/folder/6yr...f90k/Volume_08. (I'm the scanner)

                Only have 2 issues with what you said...you'd be looking back at my work not yours, and as it is now there isn't anything to look back on...But hey, like i said a few times already, i only offered to help to get it out there...but as you guys said no to my help, i offered another solution...just trying to help now that I can no longer help were it really matters...i've got to be honest and I simply don't enjoy cleaning...only did it to be of use...since i'm not, i will not.

                  Hey, so I saw you needed a translator from French for Dreamland. Idk, I'm really willing to try, though it would be my first time doing anything like this so bear with me (in case you accept me) if I stumble too much please xD. I learned French at home and I'm pretty fluent in English so that shouldn't be much of an issue. Hope you read this and pick me, have a good day ;3

                    It says it's closed here but I'm not sure that it is. Fathom would know for sure. Anyway, just follow the instructions here. http://forum.egscans.com/threads/643...ted-Positions*

                        I would just like to say that I totally agree with this comment by Frostbite posted (4?) 4 [4!] long years ago.
                        So if you ever, by any chance, see this post then thumbs up Chillybite. You are old now.

                            I can filter that:

                            "We would rather have crappy, low-quality, but speedy releases, than good releases that are few and far between."

                            I get it. Especially today, where more and more people are willing to accept low-quality work as long as it's free and fast, and often justify it with "it's free, so we expect it to be shitty, just give it to us quickly for free!" But unfortunately for people with tiny patience meters and/or attention spans, EGS doesn't do low quality work. Lots of people who have tested with us (and failed, and yes, I am one of those people who tested and failed the cleaner/redrawer test, so I speak from experience) know this.

                            But that is also the reason that EGS has a reputation of making quality releases, though, that get publishers all up in a tizzy when they license stuff we've been previously doing. Because generally speaking, we tend do work that is good enough to publish. In the end, I figure we're going to continue to do slower high quality releases rather than shitty fast ones because it's worked for us in the past, and that's how we roll.

                            ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
