Update on the AfterDawn staff writer position

Written by Jari Ketola @ 02 Mar 2006 4:26 User comments (32)

Update on the AfterDawn staff writer position First of all I would like to thank everyone that applied for the position. We were definitely surprised by the number and quality of applications we received! Great job everyone!
That being said, it has taken us quite a while to go through all the applications. With alot of projects and recruiting going on, there's only so much time we have been able to devote to going through the applications. We have just about gone through all the applications now, but it will still be a while before we pick applicants for the second round.

So if you posted an application and haven't heard back from us -- sorry to have kept you waiting, but you neededn't worry! You will hear from us soon enough.

Keep up all the good work on the forums, guys

22.3.2006 5:11

Yup, keep it up. A good idea would be a mod fill out form for mod positions. There are a lot of threads/users that aren't dealt with for quite some time. That smurf guy started making all these spam threads/posts at 4am and it wasn't dealth with until 8pm ;) There are only 3 active mods.. just a sugestion ;) -Mike

there's enough mods, there's just a lot of little rascals and too many forums for them to hide in. the downside of AD being one of the most well known sites is that it attracts the pondlife as well as the swarms of good posters. keep the offensive reports coming

which is yet another reason we ask our senior members and addicts to help out.

I FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHT DVD-SHRINK WON'T WORK AFTER BURNING A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF DVDs, I DOWNLOAD DVD COVER PHOTOS FROM and it turns out if you don't have a good spam blocker or anti-virus they will dump a whole lot of crap into your computer. these viruses or whatever they are corupt everything in your system.... but that did'nt stop me. i figured a way to burn dozens of copy written stuff...

@ 1hunter 1. Read the Forum Rules B4 U Post. 2. Are you mentally...? use your imagination!! How could you possibly post that reply, which is so off topic to this thread?

...a mind is a terrible thing to waste...

114.3.2006 17:32

you call yourself wayCRAZE, I can understand why. If you would have taken the time to read my second post, you would know that the reason i had problems with DVD Shrink was that another site i was logged on to download dvd covers was unloadind all kinds of trojens, viruses and crap. So mr. crazy, the next time you call someone mental, make sure he really isn't mental enough to track you down ! THIS WILL BE MY LAST POST, SO DON'T WASTE ANYONEs time by answering this... SGT* R. HUNTER, NYC

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.
