Hey there everyone!
Welcome to our new beta category, made
'cos nina-neko is so damn insecure about her English being sh!te
to ensure that all our members' fics can be in top condition!What is Beta Reading?
Beta reading is getting some one to go over what you've written and edit it into top shape, this way all those brillaiant ideas can be read without the worries of grammar, spelling etc.How's this going to work?
Two topics will be created : One for anyone who wants to volonteer themself as a beta reader and another for those who have a fic they'd like to put through beta reading.Beta Reading =/= Proof reading
A beta reader is for editing
your fic, whereas a proof reader will just give it a once over, simply checking it.
Be sure to say which you're asking for/offering. Especially if you don't really want to change all that much in your fic, ask for proof reading.::RULES::
-Nobody may force anybody to be their beta. Once you hear 'no' do not ask again.
-Do not ask anybody to beta a certain rating if they are under the recommended age for that rating.
-All beta readers have the right to refuse a fic -even once they've seen it. They can
change their minds.
-When asking someone to beta your fic, bear in mind their preferences, don't ask them to beta anything that could make them uncomfortable or that they would rather not read.
Don't hesitate if you have a question or if anything's been missed!
