Friendly mod post
Hello fellow betas!

Since Dreamwidth has recently introduced community importing, I've been thinking of mirroring the community over there and importing entries. This is just a heads up post that if it does happen it will be within a week or so. Once it's done I'll make another post pointing anyone interested in that direction.

Machete!beta or cheerleader?
Category of stories I beta-read: Most, especially SMUT :D
I won't beta-read: Crossovers for fandoms I'm not interested in; Beagles; Original Character PoV (Don't assume you can sneak your self-insertion past me; 3 authors have tried.)
Pairings I beta-read: Most (het, f/f & m/m slash, multiples BRING IT)
Pairings I won't beta: incest (unless you wanna give Ra/Hathor a shot)
If not pairing oriented, character fics I'd beta: Most
If not pairing oriented, character fics I won't beta: Mary Sue, Gary Stu
Type of beta I can do: Grammar, spelling, usage; Story construction; Thematic analysis; Canon
Length of the fics you'd beta: Any, but bear in mind that asking anyone to con-crit a novel-length story in less than a week is pretty freakin' arrogant.

Vala writes slashPreferred formats:
Preferred correspondence via:
  • Google Docs (Try it! It allows real-time editing, highlighting, & multiple editors!)
  • email with attachments (campyspornshack@gmail.com)
  • LiveJournal private message as a last resort
I WILL NOT proof-read via a Chat window. (No, seriously. Someone tried. Drove me nuts until I finally refused.)

Current Mood: busy

Mod Note
To all the great members here. First off, thanks for being a member and offering up your skills as a beta for those in the SG-1 community.

Second, I'm here to make an announcement. I've been in talks with the mod(s) over at stargate_summer and I agreed to affiliate with them. So what does that mean for us here? Wellstargate_summer is just gearing up for a 2010 session, so in the coming months authors will be looking for betas. That means you, my dear members. So I hope that all of you are ready, get your (metaphorical) red pens out and be there for those who need us!

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Your mod,

Welcome!
Hello to everyone who is finding the comm thanks to the Stargate fic panel at Dragon*Con! I am Katy, your lovely mod. If you want to offer your services as a beta, please visit this post first. If you are looking for a beta, just scroll through the very short list that we have. Thanks for all the great questions at the panel, and the interest in the comm!

General beta-age offered (on the basis that you've gotta give some to get some)
.

Category of the fics you'd beta: Pretty much anything outside of what's written below. Happy with any rating.

Category of the fics you won't beta: Ummm...mpreg, pregnancyfic in general, or kidfic. I'm fine with darker stuff, but I'm not so good with pure fluff and/or romance fics.


Pairing of the fics you'd beta if applicable): Anything as long as I know the characters (I'm midway through s10 at the moment, and haven't seen either Ark of Truth or Continumm), and the writer makes a credible case for them being a pairing

Pairing of the fics you won't beta (if applicable): See above


If not pairing oriented, character fics you'd beta: As with pairing, as long as I know the character in question, I'm happy to beta.

If not pairing oriented, character fics you won't beta: Nothing comes to mind.


Type of beta you'd do: I work as an editor/proof reader, so I'm happy to beta for mechanical issues like spelling (UK or US), punctuation and grammar. I'm also good to beta for voice and 'in-character-ness'. However, I generally get so caught up in whether the voice and the characterisation are right, that I miss plot holes altogether; so if you primarily need plot help, I'm probably the wrong person for you :-(

Length of the fics you'd beta: Drabbles or one-offs of anything up to about 6,000 words are fine. Anything longer would depend on what else I had on at the time.

My profession is technical writing and editing, so I have editorial experience.  However, I tend to get busy, so I'm probably not a good choice if you're in a hurry.  Also, let me know if you're looking just for light edit (typos, grammar) or heavy edit (plot, etc.).

Okay, Mod Post

 I just went and looked at 

sga_beta (who we are now affiliated with), and have decided that I like the way that comm is working. I' ve pasted the same info in the comm's user info, but just so everyone is on the same page, I'm putting it here. Now, let's get some betas listed shall we?

Looking for a Beta
Hi guys,
My name's Jen and I'm looking for a beta. Good english and grammar is essential and no squicks over vampire fics and mpreg fics are a must.

Thanks
Jen

Welcome!
Well, we have a few members now! I thank you for joining me. Now, suggestions, please!

I want to make this as open and welcoming a community as possible. If you want to post looking for a beta, or possibly post offering services as a beta, go ahead. Spread the word, let your friends in the Stargate community know we exist. I this comm to be a place people can come to for help.

Thanks!

Katy

Welcome!
 A new community! Wheee!

Okay, so, as it says in the userinfo, there was a realization at the SG fanfic panel that SG-1 didn't have a beta community. Well, I've been thinking about it, and here it is, a community for finding SG-1 betas.

Now it just needs to grow. So, helpful friends, go forth and pimp. Make suggestions on how this comm should run. Suggest affilites. Offer to help pretty up the place. Any and all suggestions more than welcome!!

I declare this community open!
