Join Us!

Do you have some time to spare and love yaoi, why not join us?

[ ☆ IMPORTANT: MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO JOIN US ☆ ]

Scanlation is a time-consuming process so if you think you might not have the time you may want to reconsider. We also prefer that people involved with other groups do not join us as we have had problems in the past due to this (applicable to all positions but Japanese Translator). You are welcome to read the descriptions of each position and then send us an email, with the info given here, at yaoislife2@gmail.com

IMPORTANT: we do not make profit out of our scanlations since this is for fans, by fans. That said, if you apply, you are volunteering for a hobby, not an actual job. We do not get paid in any way, we do this because we like it.

BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER:

1. If a position is CLOSED, it IS closed. Do NOT apply for closed positions.

2. The English Proofreader, Editor and Quality Checker positions are roles our group does not offer so please do not apply for any of these positions. You may apply for the English Proofreader and Editor positions ONLY if you have previous remarkable experience in other groups.

  • Cleaner – CLOSED

Consists of cropping, resizing, cleaning dust, leveling and many others on the manga scans to create a excellent finish to the pages.

You must use Photoshop, for we use no other program. If you have no experience with cleaning but have the requirements we will train individuals only if they have a basic experience with general Photoshop, a graphic tablet (we do not know how to teach you to redraw without one) and are willing to become long term members.

If you already have great experience in cleaning then please apply too!

An average chapter (25-30 pages) must not take more than 2 weeks. With the help of a duster, time gets reduced to 1 week/1 week and half.

Information to fill when emailing for the Cleaner position:

  1. Have you worked in scanlation groups before or by yourself? Or maybe you do not have experience at all? In case you have previous experience, which groups are you in? (Mention if it was in the past or you are currently in them too)
  2. Do you have a graphic tablet? What do you do with it?
  3. Are you willing to learn?
  4. How much free time do you have?
  5. Are you willing to become a long term member (not for a short period. Take care that we only offer training for people willing to be long term so you may want to reconsider)?
  6. How old are you (please take care that you must be 18 or older in order to join us)?
  7. Why do you want to join us? (optional)

    Do you still have openings for a Numberer? I saw this on the main page, on the right hand side, but when I went to the Join Us page, it doesn’t mention it. Just wanted to make sure before sending in an application! Thanks! <3
