Do YOU wanna be a Beta Reader???
Aug 4 2009, 5:33 AM EDT | Post edited: Aug 4 2009, 5:46 AM EDT
The FF section is in need of new Betas and that's why I'm asking you if anyone out there is interested to be one.

Being a Beta means:

1. Helping out with proofreading FFs and correcting grammar or other trouble with texts when help is asked for. (Authors will contact you, not vice versa)
2. You individually work out with each author that has asked for your help what kind of help they want. We're all different!
3. You should obviously be VERY good in English ;)

It does not mean:

1. Randomly correcting grammar in FFs you happen to come across.
2. Changing a text so much that it's no longer the author's. (Incidents like these have occurred a few times)

If you are interested, please state so in this thread or send me a PM and I will add you to our list of Betas.
Also if you have any questions, feel free to ask them here so we can all get the answer! :)
