Quality Checkers Needed
« on: September 01, 2003, 05:46:44 pm »
Live-eviL is recruiting some Quality Check (QC) staff.  QC staff watch an episode (before it's released to the public) and look for: timing, editing, typesetting, and encoding mistakes, with emphasis on editing (i.e. one should be well versed in English).  If you're interested come on irc (here is a guide to get onto irc easily, for those of you who are new to it: http://users.skynet.be/testing/Smircguides/Smircguide3.html - our channel is: #live-evil and the server is: irc.enterthegame.com) and msg, tanman, tofu, or myself, or any op if none of use are on, and say that you're interested in joining the QC team, thanks.

I've been on the QC team for a little while now, it's really good fun and it feels nice to know that you helped make sure that the released eps might just be that little bit nicer than they would have been otherwise.

Stop by on IRC and have a chat with digitize, tanman or Tofusensei they should be able to help you out.  You'll probably be given an informal test (I don't think there's an official one yet) and then be set to work and join a couple of the QC teams.

Other than the other mistakes in your post, do I win for spotting the guy who spell checks but doesn't re-read before posting?  =D

I like to apply for a position on your QC staff.

I tried last night to talk to someone of the named persons that are labelled as spoke persons on the irc.

I shall try again shortly.

Also I saw a message about Distro's, could someone enlighten me more on this subject?

I need the info for the channel to QC etc, please PM me that information.

I was approved by Tofusensei, you can check it with him.

I'm assigned to the Rumic Theather 2nd season and the last few of the current and upcoming eps. but I can't start unless I know where to go and get the stuff.

Sincerely,

Odd_shapeShifter

There might be some spaces to help out on certain series and almost definitely for the drama projects.  Best bet is to talk to one of the friendly ops on IRC and that can kick start things.

What kind of skills are required to do QC work? I have a general familiarity with encoding programs like "virtualdub" and "flaskMPEG"... would there be a tutorial involved, etc...?

To QC you need a great eye for detail and be happy to be critical and not be afraid to offend people.  In other words you look at every part of an episode before it's released and look for errors or things that don't work, type it up in good old-fashioned US English and the relevant people get to work on it.  We usually work in dedicated 3 person teams so no serious errors slip through.

I think there might be a test in the near future is tanman, myself and a few others get around to it.
