Availability: It really depends, but I do try to make myself available as often as possible.

Number of people you are willing to beta for at one time: Let's say two at any one time.

Work Status: Available

Story Type Preference: Anything. I'll read slash, het, gen, kinks, all ratings, you name it. I only have a problem with scat (poop erotica) and brother/sister incest. Other than that, I think that I'm good.

Once you have been accepted as a beta, you will need to post an entry stating that you are open for business. You can customize your entry to fit your personality and time schedule, but the mock up you should work from is thus:

Availability: (Always Busy, Always Free, It Depends)
Number of people you are willing to beta for at one time:
Work Status: (Write in whether you are swamped or not. If you are, we’ll add you to the list of betas writers should not request.)
Story Type Preference: (Slash, General, Het.)

You are free to list your email address, messenger names, and so forth, but you are not required to. The moderators of this community highly suggest that you email writers directly, instead of leaving your email address out in the open. One of our largest concerns is for our betas’ work schedules. We don’t want you to become hopelessly swamped for any reason, including being emailed by people who are attempting to sidestep the sign up process.

That said, post away. You will not need to repost your entry, as it will be linked to on the community’s information page.

Happy betaing!

Yours mods,

Belle and Dali

Great! That's exactly what Belle and I wanted to hear, because our fandom is in desperate need of good betas to help out its writers.

First and foremost, we need to specify exactly what a beta is. A beta can do all of the following things or only several of them:

What a beta is/does, and how this relates to you.Collapse )

Thank you once again for your interest in xiaolinbetas. And, good luck!
