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 rareshipsonice@gmail.com.

Required information:
Your AO3 name - Ashiiblack
Mediums you can give feedback on - fanfic and podfic
How to contact you privately - DW message to start and then I'll give you my email.

Optional information:
Content you will not beta - mpreg, omegaverse, noncon, hardcore kinky fic
Content you may or may not beta, but would like a warning about before starting - I'm willing to beta almost anything. Just give me a summary of your fic and I can tell you if I think I'd be a good fit
Any potentially relevant specialties you have - Nothing specific. I'm from the desert so if you're looking for details on ice skating I can't give you that.
Type of feedback you can give - I'm an educator so SPAG is a strength, word choice, helping to clarify dialogue/actions, you name it. I can do just a SPAG job or if you need me to help with plot, I'm willing to do that too.
Date ranges you're available, and how much time before the deadline you'd need to turn around a beta job - just SPAG and word choice won't take me long for a 5-10k fic. Generally a day or two. If I'm doing a more extensive beta job I like to read it once or twice and take notes before giving feedback so I'd rather have a week or two to get that done. I'm free May 29-June 18 for the most part, and then July 1-due date
Your preferred file formats - Google docs

Content notes: please give me a heads-up for character death and graphic violence
Availability: whenever, just give me at least 3 days before you want it back
File formats: basically anything except .pages
Types of feedback: SPAG/flow/line editing/copyediting for fic. And I'll ping any structure/pacing issues I notice, but probs won't have time to go in-depth on that. General impressions and suggestions and "maybe you could push the dark values more" and "is that his hand or a confused tarantula" for art.

Contact: DW message and then likely switch over to email.

Optional:
I will beta almost anything, though I don't know very much about kink.
Any potentially relevant specialties you have: I'm German, so I European stuff is something I can help with. I don't have any figure skating experience.
Type of feedback you can give: SPAG and flow are my strengths; anything more would be case-to-case how much concentration I have (though hit me up and I can tell you!)
Availability: Uni is keeping me on my toes, so weekend it is for anything longer than 3k, though contact me and I will give you an estimate! I should be available all throughout, with the exception of the next weekend (June second through fifth).
Preferred File Format: My favourite is Word (.doc(x)), but I can also do Google docs.

yue_ix: Chibi of Merlin with tentacle arms (Tentacles chibi)
Your AO3 name: yue-ix
Mediums you can give feedback on: fanart, podfic, some fic if it falls in my specialities
How to contact you privately: private message on Dreamwidth or comment on any open entry then we'll move to email or others

Will beta: anything (gen to filthiest kink are all ok) except suicide and dead characters

Specialities: I have experience with digital and traditional art (ie: Photoshop, MangaStudio, chinese ink, watercolours, crayons, collages, some crochetting) and a variety of drawing styles such as manga, comics and BD.

I am a native French speaker and live in Canada, so can help with French words/sentences or with French Canadian trivia.

Types of feedback: for all, I can provide cheerleading, brainstorming, or "does this sound right?" and "what kink would X enjoy?". For art, I can additionally do red-line-over-your-art, or let's-hunt-for-references-together types of beta. For podfic, I can help with French pronunciation and some editing, but can't help with English pronunciation.

Turnover time: at least 4 days. If for art or crafts, the sooner the better since edits affect the whole pieces very easily.

File format: it'll entirely depend on what kind of beta you want.

Beta!

Your AO3 name: InkHallucination
Mediums you can give feedback on:fanfic, fanart.
How to contact you privately: my email Carla_TIF@hotmail.com
Optional information:
Content you will not beta: I don't do Victurio! It's really the only ship I don't like, also if it involves character death, no.
Content you may or may not beta: I will gladly beta any ship with Yuuri Katsuki in it, I'm open with the content, but if it has angust a warning would be nice
Any potentially relevant specialties you have: I speak english and spanish, have experiance with both digital and traditional art, I know my fair share about the Victorian and Edwardian eras, as well as anything past that,50's,60's, 70's, 80's, 90's. I know a lot about horror and I'm a fashion student with a hobby for real crime. So if you need someone who knows about any of that.
Type of feedback you can give:structural edits, general reader/viewer/listener reactions, technical suggestions, brainstorming, cheerleading, I'll do any of the above! My favorites tho are structural edits and brainstorming, I've also join the Nanowrimo and won for a couple of times now so if you have a more or less long project I definetly can help you on how to end it on time!
Date ranges you're available, and how much time before the deadline you'd need to turn around a beta job: I'm pretty much always free, but I may get little slower in the last two weeks of June. Nevertheless I'm a fast reader and I say I can review a small project, say 4k or 5k in two tree days top if I'm very busy, long up to 100k would take up to 2 weeks to turn around. I would do my best to give it to you as soon as possible.
Your preferred file formats: For fics we can use a googledoc? Or you could send me a word file.

I have extensive ballet experience and can answer questions about dance and ballet training.

Can critique structure, general reactions, some SPAG

Available any time but I will need at least 5 days for a constructive beta on most works

For fanart can critique basic pose/anatomy, some composition & color (haven't done art critique in a long while - but I am happy to give feedback to the best of my abilities!)
