Tips for Beta's

Having a Beta reader or Proof reader is not compulsary though it is recommended.  
While not intending any disrespect, beta or proof readers have shown to be particularly helpful in two main areas:

- longer fics.
- authors who have English as their second language. 

However, having a beta or proof reader does not mean it is the end of the world.  We are happy for members to use non LJ friends as a beta reader if they wish, provided that their standard of English is good.  

Authors please remember that your beta, whoever it may be, gives up their time and puts in a lot of work to proof read.  We request that whoever your beta is, they are acknowledged for their work.   

If you wish to put forward your services as a beta reader, please comment to this entry.  It's fine to give a brief introduction saying why you wish to be a beta reader, and also how you wish to be contacted for beta purposes. 

Beta's so far are as follows.  Contact details below in comments:
