Old Betalist

This list is provided merely for your convenience. The owner and moderators of the BSV do not actively advocate any of the individuals on this list and it is the authorís responsibility to ensure they choose an appropriate beta.

This list is no longer maintained.
Entries on this list can not be edited or removed easily by the beta. That would require an email to the admin, and direct manipulation of the database. For that reason we decided to discontinue this list, and link beta-information to the user-accounts instead.
If you want to be part of the new list, you'll need to create an account (if you don't have one already) - don't worry, it's free and we don't send out any spam. There, you'll find the option Beta settings in your accout settings. Just fill out the form and you'll be part of the new list.
If you later wish to edit your entry on the betalist, you can simply go back to Beta settings and change your information. You can even set it to Temporarily Inactive if you are an active beta who doesn't have the time to take on any more authors at the moment.
In addition, the new list will set entries to Probably Inactive if the beta in question hasn't accessed their BSV account in over a year. Of course that doesn't neccessarily mean they no longer beta in the BtVS fandom, but the chance that someone on this list is no longer in the fandom is greatly increased.

New at Beta reading. Want to try my hand at it. If I suck at it, I'll be the first one to tell you. Otherwise, I am willing to try. I am a sometimes poet, of the bloody awful variety, but I still do it. I just don't share it with the rest of humanity. :)
I am bilingual, English and Spanish, an am taking classes to become a certified Translator. I freelance once in a while, translating projects for others and get a kick out of that. Would love to work from home and get paid beaucoup bucks for it.

But, I digress. I'll be happy to help so let me know.

Max rating
Can help with:I'm very nit-picky about grammar and spelling as well as plot pit falls. Often an author will use the wrong name or will inadvertantly contradict himself or herself in an effort to post the newest chapter. While this is understandable it often distracts the readers by drawing attention away from the story. Unfortunately I also do this for movies and consequently am no longer allowed to speak while watching with friends. I'm also a great sounding board for the author and will give advice if asked. I'm willing to beta any length and any rating fic... yes, even the 'G' rated ones.
Uncomfortable with:No restrictions. Willing to beta any pairing or threesome in any situation. If you happen to pick something I've never read before I'll still welcome it.

Can help with:Grammar, punctuation and sentence structure are my strengths. I hesitate giving plot guidance/advice unless asked for it, because I think, unless stuck, writers should go with their instincts.

I'm from Germany, so I can help you with any questions regarding German culture, education, stuff like that. And with the language itself of course.

I'm a computer technican, so I'll be able to ansewr almost all questions regarding that. Might have problems with anything Mac-related, but I'll probably know where to look it up.

Mythology means ancient Greece, and history would be ancient Greece, lots of stuff regarding the Roman empire, England at pretty much all times. Those things are only a hobby of mine, but if I don't have an answer, I think it's safe to assume that I know where to look it up.

I'm not very good with punctuation (have enough trouble with that in my own languahe), but I think I read enough to have a pretty good handle on whether something reads well or not. I'm not willing to beta for someone who doesn't have someone else to check the technical stuff - don't want to be responsible for not catching those errors, but if you need a second opinon, detailed feedback, or want to reduce the workload for your "punctuation beta", I should be able to help you out.

Studied poli sci in college, w/an emphasis on Japanese culture & politics (s'posed to speak Japanese, can't really do it anymore). I love to cook; have an amazing ability to retain completley useless info, which makes me a great Trivial Pursuit partner (and that + $2 will get you on the NYC subway ...). Oh, and I'm a complete Buffyverse FREAK - I've seen every episode of both series multiple times over, and own all the DVD sets (w/Angel S.5 on pre-order). Is that helpful?

Additional information:
I'm a 40 something female, in a long term monogamous het relationship. I worked previously as a nurse, but have worked in insurance (health), retail (including shoes!), health foods, pet foods & supplies, teaching, various secretarial/assistant positions in college (counseling, gofer,
TA, drunken prof nanny, among others) and own my own business, breeding parrots and selling pet supplies, as well as the occasional farm animals. I own rural property, one acre, and have had almost any animal you could imagine on it except hogs and horses, tho' have learned a bit about those too along the way. As noted first, I have a fair knowledge of the medical field. Also some knowledge of the military, especially in it's medical field, as while a nursing student, a large portion of my training took place in a Navy Hospital, it's ER, & it's clinics. Also, a bit on military from a historical viewpoint, as I re-enact, and have studied nursing from American Revolutionary War, Civil War, the US 1930 & 40's/WWII (a little WWI in there as well) with emphasis on WWII, as I am currently learning about the experiences of combat nurses while into WWII re-enactment.
Though a nurse already, I became a history major in college, majoring in History with a contextual (like a minor but cross colleges) in Social Sciences Education. I started by substitute teaching, as well as doing the required internships in FL.
Hobbies include historical costuming, aviculture & animal genetics, Middle Eastern Dance, historical re-enactment & research, watching waaay too much
TV (got addicted bigtime when I shattered my foot in an car wreck)and reading Buffy fic, particularly Spuffy fic, most anything w/Buffy & Spike. Even with the Brooding One too, so long as B&S are there too.
My faults include not being punctual, generalized ass-dragging (I know, so not good for a beta, right?), being a LOUSY car driver, and having a potty mouth.
My personal beliefs are non-Christian, but I respect people that practice what they preach.
My personal beliefs lean towards humanism, Wicca, and I attend a group within a congregation at a Unitarian church. So, yes, I guess I could list magick, witchcraft, wicca/Wicca, the occult including ritualized ceremony, in general, mediums, and African based spiritualities as well, as areas of experience.
Oh, and while in college I also proofread for Non-English-native students so got somewhat used to typos made, words left out, by writers not thinking in English as their native language.
Hope it helps!

Uncomfortable with:I'll beta anything.
Return within:say 2 days to be on the safe side

Additional information:
I'm totally up for doing some last minute research if you don't have the time to do it yourself. Science in particular is my strong-suit. (Research for a science-related topic would probably be slightly more in-depth than for history or anything else).

I'm really thorough with my work, which is why my return time isn't shorter. I might read through a fic 2-3 times before I'll let myself believe it's perfect. The same goes for research. Unless I absolutely have no time or can't find anything (or an author tells me to quit beeing nit-pick girl), I'll try to dredge up all I can on my given topic.

Max rating
Can help with:I mostly beta for punctuation errors and grammar, but i also love helping with plots or advice for idea's but I won't push an idea if the writer doesn't like it or jsut doesn't think it would work good. I work pretty fast and I have beta'd before for the spuffyfantasy archives.
