If you are interested in doing beta pinch-hitting, please join our pinch-hitting list, Ladies' Big Bang Pinch Hitting. Pinch hits for betas, cheerleading and eventually complements will be announced there.

What is betaing / what are betas signing up to do?

When you sign up to beta, you're offering your beta services through October 1.

Betas offer a pair of eyes to look over a project and offer some sort of feedback/critique on it. Everyone's beta style is unique, so when you get in contact with your creator just let them know what your particular style and strengths/weaknesses are (e.g. "I'm great with catching typos but terrible with grammar"; "I'm good with catching proportion errors but color isn't my strong point").

How you beta is your choice; just let your creator know what your availability's going to look like (e.g., "I have a two-week turnaround time"; "I prefer if you sent me smaller chunks as you create and I'll get them back to you as soon as possible") and what methods work best for you (e-mail, chat, gdocs, etc.).

If you need to drop out just be sure that you let us know or that you let your creator know.

[[Beta Sign-Up Form]]

Please note:

We cannot guarantee matching on fandom, so please only volunteer if you feel relatively flexible and you can offer general beta services.

On a first-come first-serve basis, if you see a creator you'd like to work with who has signed up (and asked for beta services), you can e-mail us and let us know, and if they haven't already been matched we'll see if we can assign you to them. Alternately, if you'd prefer to wait until sign-ups close, we will be creating a post with screened comments where on a first-come first-service basis betas can let us know if they'd like to work with a certain creator.

Also, because this challenge is panfanwork, we really encourage you to consider betaing in as wide a range of possible fanworks as you feel comfortable doing. For example, icon betaing may not be as common as fiction betaing, but we'd like to be able to provide as many of our creators as possible with betas.

Note that I'm willing to beta more than 4 if they're in lots of different categories. Like, I would rather not beta 4 fics, but e.g. a fic and some art and two sets of poetry and two reviews would be fine.

From: [personal profile] ginny_t
Oh, sorry 'bout that. I'm very textual, and I don't figure meta or reviews would involve original content, so I guess it's just fiction.

I also didn't include number of creators I'm willing to beta for. Such lack of detail is not so good in a potential beta. *hides* I'll say two and hope that doesn't end up being two tomes. ^_~
