I've been looking for a good way to get involved around here, and since I love to write (and read about stuff), as well as do web design/content editing...I think this would be a pretty good place for me to get involved.

I am curious though, I am interested in Formatting and Organization (since I do webdesign I enjoy this type of thing) but I'm also interested in editing as well. Is doing both possible?

Look behind you
Hey, uh... I go onto the apps page, but there's nowhere I can post...

I can PM you instead if that works, I'm interested in being a french translator.
