    Basically, during this round of staff applications, a few people have come to me and asked if they wanted me to proofread their application. At first, I thought it wouldn't be much fun but it turns out to be fun for me? I don't know how but it is. Anyways just start a conversation with me link your application and I will edit it hopefully within 12 hours!

    Tbh, editing applications for people doesn't seem right. Maybe just highlight parts that need fixing?

    Idk, it just seems a little immoral imo. Good luck though!

    I'm just saying a lot of people are having trouble with grammar. In the past, people have paid others to write their whole application

    And when was the last time a paid-for application got accepted?

    Sure, people have done it in the past, and I get it; you just want to help other people. But editing something for someone seems immoral to me.

    when I mean editing I mean like if someone used the wrong "to" or "there". Not rewriting their whole thing. I got a life you know!

    So you're grammarly-ing? Sounds great!

    As long as you're not rewriting sections to make them sound like they're better, I'm cool with it (not that my opinion really mattered).

    But, if you're just fixing small things, why not just comment on their app after they've submitted it that they've made a mistake?

    Honestly, I think all aspects of an application should be straight from the applicant to show exactly what they are capable of so the application mangers can make a proper decision.

    I honestly think its nice to help but you should let people do it themselves so the moderators can tell if they are willing to do this stuff themselves
