  1. noooooooooooooo bye aura, you were definitely one of the more supportive yet dominant media team members. when you became leader, I had already known that you had the power and know-how how to run the team, but I definitely realize that it's the motivation and willingness that actually puts those skills to work. it's like if you know how to read, you're no better than the man who can't read if you don't want to read. weird analogy but u get the point anyway, good luck in your future endeavors <3
  2. Thanks for clearing up the activity, I understand life can get in the way of things! Therefore, I'm willing to give you a test, and I'll have one out for you later today. Just some tips for then: -use google docs -give yourself adequate time -don't stress yourself out -use grammarly or other programs used to check writer's works -be creative All of these tips are essential for a great writing piece. Follow them all, and you'll earn yourself a spot in the writer's team!
  3. Hi, and welcome to GFL! To introduce myself, I'm the 2iC for the Writers within Media Team. I won't be covering anything about other roles, but for now: -Like Wiggles and many others have already said, you've only recently joined, and even if you've been here on alternate accounts/been here before in the past, your activity on the forums is pretty low. I also take into account game time (which I've not checked out yet), but from a general view, your activity is low. We tend to accept applicants who involve themselves with the community and make themselves known, commenting on forum posts or quizzes, etc. and this will help you in the long run. -The evidence you've provided for being a writer is pretty basic, and I wouldn't really give much credit towards scholarship essays or school assignments, as these are mandatory and thus you're kinda forced to put effort into it. Don't get me wrong - I don't mind this type of evidence, it's just that its credibility is low. If possible, you could link me to a google doc about one, but don't put it as your only evidence. -I want to see on any works you've done merely from thought. No one told you to do it; you just thought you had an idea you were passionate about, and let your hands do the talking, so to speak. The PDF file you inserted, for some reason, I cannot see due to forums formatting (this means I won't take it into account) but I still really, super duper, spectacularly want to see your writing efforts on that PDF! Any more evidence is welcomed dearly and is preferred. That's really all I have to say. My current vote is neutral/none, as I've gotten no work from you and activity is an easy requirement to complete. I'd love to see your work. Don't think you have no shot - we just need more. You have a shot!
  4. After looking at your recent works, I think I'm going to go with a hard Neutral . I've seen a lot of great work from you when observing your DeviantArt works, but at the same time there's a lot of dramatic past to consider. While I do understand that you wish for your past to be overlooked and to judge on what I see, I also have that rule for myself; but the level of controversy there's been, it's very hard to overlook the past. If there's any more drama before or after or during this test, then I'm probably going to drop my vote to a -1. I'm personally giving you a chance; if you produce some quality work for your test, then I'll start to consider a hard +1. Good luck, Bae!
  5. https://steamcommunity.com/id/auxiliumargon/ Why? More than one reasons: -Who doesn't want more games? -I want to expand my games library. -I've run out of games to play, so this might make a good addition.
  6. post your BEST memes, my fellow memers i know i got good ass memes th following memes are my weakest memes out of my entire meme index ths post is to help ppl expand their meme index; in this world, all memers are amazing
  7. Also, some of that might've been cut out or misplaced due to forums lag and the forums glitching me and fucking me over. Hopefully, context clues and decisive thinking can help anyone reading my ass reply and putting it into a coherent reply.
  8. The Pros: -Good storyline. -Somewhat understood. -Included conflict that posed an obstacle for Oeth. -Included a motivator to surpass that obstacle for Oeth. -Used outline. The Cons: -Improper usage of commas, or lack of commas. -Improper use of a semicolon. -The story seemed rush due to lack of commas. - short. Suggestions for improvement: I think you need to definitely use google docs. By using the workspace on the response on this forum itself, it definitely seemed to limit your space subconsciously. I think if you had used Google Docs, then you would've gone with the wind with creativity in your head; not confined to the limits of the reply box. I gave you a max of 8 pages for that reason. Also, you had a very short story. I was surprised by this; while the story contained the essentials that make a story a story, there was not enough detail. Again, I allowed a maximum of 8 pages because I wanted you to flourish with creativity, but sadly that wasn't the case. You have a very limited perception of grammar mechanics. I think you should become a little bit more educated on grammar mechanics and how to use the comma. For example: "I graduated a year early with a 4.5 GPA the highest GPA the school has ever seen." Not only could you have used a semicolon, seeing how these clauses are so closely related in thought, but you could've added a comma and another word to connect this properly. This shows little knowledge of grammar mechanics. With the correct knowledge of grammar mechanics and general writing mechanics, a text can be properly understood with a slow and easy pace. Oftentimes, when a text lacks a correct knowledge of grammar mechanics, it seems as if the story is completely rushed and is hard to comprehend. One or two times I had to reread a sentence, and that's an issue. Final Thoughts: I think you have a lot of potential, Caboose. However, right now, you do not seem like you have enough knowledge of grammar or writing mechanics to properly form a story. I apologize if what I've said is in a harsh tone; I'm simply stating what mistakes I saw and giving you the advice necessary to fix that. However, you have a creative flair to you. This somewhat balances out your lack of knowledge of grammar and writing mechanics. I'm on the fence here; neither negative nor positive. Also, next time use google docs. It will definitely help you write better; I can assure that. Vote: Neutral P.S. I sincerely apologize if my words seemed harsh; it's 12:44 right now in the morning, and my previous reply was completely fucked over because of forum glitches. Know that I wish no harm; rather, I wish to help you in future endeavors. This isn't it, though. Other media team members will be allowed to vote on your test, and you still have a shot. Good luck, young grasshopper!
  9. One more thing; it's very hard to pull off switching from one perspective to another (e.g. first-person to third-person) within a text, so I suggest for you to use one or the other. If you want to take the challenge, though, be my guest!
