yes.

also quoted from last time we did a round of these but:

"As the Content Manager for Smashboards for a while, I'll just throw this out here: If you're feeling doubt about this but you're considering it, take the plunge. A lot of our best/top contributors just kinda took a stab at it and went for it, and the learning experience they all got was invaluable. The learning experience I've had can not be stated enough, and each week there's always more to learn. So, again, go for it and take the plunge. The worst that can happen is that we'll say no."

Okay. Should I put in that sample review I made a few months ago? I haven't redrafted though as I had arrangements in real life at the time...

We throw it out every 6~ months now.

sure

We'll consider yours good as is. If you have any writing samples, feel free to submit again.
Didn't realize that I copied Zinith's post char for char until I posted this. I remember that I had a problem uploading a portfolio, but I can supply writing samples.
