Hope assignments are going well! I have a few announcements:
  • I've contacted a few of you with questions from your creators. Please check your emails in case that's you :)
  • A small batch of pinch hits will go up at some point Monday (PDT).
  • The beta volunteer post is up, and you're reading it now!
Volunteer betas are a very valuable part of the exchange community. Anyone is welcome to volunteer, whether or not you're signed up for the exchange. Any degree of feedback you can offer is likely to be useful to somebody.

To volunteer, just comment on this post.

Required information:
  • Your AO3 name (unless you don't have one)
  • Mediums you can give feedback on (fanfic, fanart, and/or podfic)
  • How to contact you privately
Optional information:
  • Content you will not beta
  • Content you may or may not beta, but would like a warning about before starting
  • Any potentially relevant specialties you have (for example: experience with fic/art/podfic, languages, figure skating expertise, historical eras, etc.)
  • Type of feedback you can give (SPAG, structural edits, general reader/viewer/listener reactions, technical suggestions, brainstorming, cheerleading, etc.)
  • Date ranges you're available, and how much time before the deadline you'd need to turn around a beta job
  • Your preferred file formats
I strongly encourage participants to take advantage of the beta volunteer list, if you don't have another beta lined up already. Having another set of eyes or ears can be very helpful.

If you reach out to someone on the list, it can also be helpful to be upfront about the kind of feedback you're hoping to get. That way everyone's on the same page.

As always, if you have any questions, please email me at
