Pretty sure that's the first job advert in a while that specifies candidates need a minimum standard of qualification?

That's also a good thing.

I've been saying they needed an editing team since 5th. Glad to see they're finally starting to build one.

 My company inform me that their new primaris brother just don't fit in the safety harnesses. And the Chaplain won't let us ride unless we buckle up.

Is the advert a test? On first glance I count three mistakes proof reading should've caught. There's duplicated subheaders, inconsistent spacing between paragraphs and the word 'hence' in the bit beneath 'working at GW' doesn't make sense.

Games Workshop has had editors since day 1*. The fact they now have an opening for an editor/proofreader means only that someone left or they are expanding the crew. Having an editor/proofreader doesn't guarantee that a product will be free of errors, especially with a body of work as broad and diverse as that which Games Workshop publishes.

Yes, it's frustrating when seemingly obvious errors and inconsistencies are found in professionally published works. We don't need to use this job opening as an opportunity to take cheap shots from the peanut gallery, though.

To those of you that meet the qualifications and either currently live at/near or are willing to move to/near Nottingham, UK, good luck.



* The editors on the 1st edition Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook ("Rogue Trader") were Jim Bambra and Paul Cockburn. The proofers were Mike Brunton and Lyndsey De Le Doux Paton. I'm sure we could examine GW products published prior to that book to similarly find editors and proofers.
