    Good command over English optional? :D

    (Just kidding.)



    Seriously though, good luck in choosing from many suitable volunteer candidates!

    The administration will select only those who share its particular and prescribed mindset, and hence my suggestions are pointless.

    Looking for volunteers. I think this will be good for someone looking for editorial role and make an impact.

    I am sure your Mods and TTs will be able to suggest someone suitable. Why not ask them?

    @Arsalan any ideas?

    Hmmmmm, i guess it will be hard to find any PAKISTANI who know anything about English.
    May be a super patriotic Pakistani who loves Pakistan more than anything and can be found singing praise for the country all the time and now living in abroad, lets say, in AMERICA be an ideal candidate.

    Oh wait, IS IT YOU? :D

    On a serious note, YES, it is for editor job so we will be better off choosing some one:
    1. Who is not in a rush to just get his word across and do not care about language
    2. Have preferable some past experience
    3. Is a well disciplined person and do not criticizes anything and everything just for the sake of it.

    LOL. I know my place. :D

    Good Luck with your search with an editor who is more patriotic than knowledgeable in best PDF traditions! After all, that is the better choice. Who one knows is better than what one knows, just like in real life Pakistan.

    LOL. I know my place. :D

    Oh and thank you for the well wishes dear. :)

    Volunteers? You think we members get PAID by the administration? :O All those people you see managing the forum and doing there jobs better than most of other similar forums are volunteers bahi. We do not get paid. :)

    I do enjoy my time here, so yes, I do owe some gratitude for the time I am not banned. :D

    I look forward to the new editor. How are your consultations with those you had in mind progressing?
