    Tell us your biography. Who are you? How did you become active in this media? Why? When? Who taught you?Just tell us a little about yourself.


    Hey there, I am Tyler, I am a frequenter on Malplemation and likely will be for the foreseeable future. I am 18 and a relatively recent high school graduate. While writing is a stronger point of mine I do not claim to be a grammar Nazi by any means, but I have worked around a couple sites including updates on a couple sites I used to work for IE Sleepywood, Obis Hub, MapleMe an Perion corner (All apart of Maple-Radio). I am also a gif animator with a small bit of history with the community.


    Tell us anything we need to know about your future behavior in the team.Why do you want this position? What are your plans to improve the team? How dedicated are you?


    I enjoy managing systems and learning a new vernacular in terms of business. I have some experience navigating WordPress though admittedly know minimal when it comes to site design. I want to help this site come back to life, it has become more than apparent that this is a dying media but it doesn't have to be. Individually we may seem minimal to the other communities out there but that goes without saying for most small time animators and or artists. But by actively promoting each other I feel we inherently promote the site's activity. People are excited to see new things happening on the forum but don't always have the time to look for it.
    I hope to promote quality content and spotlight individuals to get them seen. As a Team member I will ensure to spotlight an individuals or a set of individuals weekly to ensure that everyone feels like they are a part of our community and will scan the forums frequently for highlights, Reviews, and MBRs. This will also help people who have issues grabbing attention in deserted sub forums and encourage comments as well as help non animation media get noticed in the forum. Things such as art, maps, music, and gameplay commentaries and what have you.As far as the last inquiry goes, I feel I am fairly active and that I check the forum as much as I can so helping the site flourish is certainly a pleasure.


    Example of your writing:


    http://maplemation.com/forum/topic/29357-tobias-chloris/This here is a character bio I wrote

    http://maple-radio.com/cms/I also kept up with the site updates here

    http://www.mapleme.net/?p=news
    http://www.perioncorner.com/
    As well I helped Hanae archive her updates

    And I guess I can toss in a current event I wrote about a year or two ago

    Do you have anything else to add?


    I suppose my final statement would be that I really want to help this site grow more and I would love to see everyone Have a informative but not dull front page.

    You are clearly rather experienced in this field, and I would be a fool to decline your application to this team. So, since I don't particularly consider myself a fool, obviously I am accepting your application. Welcome to the team Tyler, I know you will be a great addition to our "Rad" news squad.
