  2. Just sent off my application! But I have definitely seen worse than what was in the test, Google translate isn’t that bad when you compare it to Bing translation.. Thought I might’ve dropped a dozen IQ points after reading CD and LMS with Bing + Google combined.

    1. I, for one, am definitely looking forward to it. 🙂 It’s fun either way, and it’s probably a self-standing novel, with a few references to the previous ones.

  5. Quick question… The editor’s test changed midway from Mk2 to Mk3, but I’ve already finished Mk2…. Do I need to start Mk3 or can I just submit Mk2? >.>

    1. Just submit Mk 2. Mk 3 is the “easier” test though.

  6. I submitted mine. I still haven’t gotten a reply and I replied to the email enabling viewing because I didn’t know that you have to allow viewing. Should I resubmit it?

  7. What is the name or email you submitted it under? (Kiseki is grading the last application as I type, but we can’t confirm whether we have it without your ID)

  8. Since the document should be view only, you need your own personal copy to edit. After that just follow the directions in the document and you should be good to go.
