Beta experience: I've beta'd for a few people in the past on small projects but nothing too large.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Bestiality, Bethyl (I'm afraid, sorry, just some things rub you up the wrong way)
Additional Comments: I can be lazy so please kick me if you need a fast turnaround. I've written many, many stories and a few metas so I guess that's where my strengths come from.

Beta experience:
Story types/topics I will not beta: Although I enjoy reading NC-17, I do not think I could beta those stories. 
Additional Comments: Don't know if this counts, but I worked as a proofreader in college. Really have been doing that the past 20 plus years (reports, writing step-by-step computer, software and procedural manuals for work).

Beta experience: I have been betaing for various fandoms for around ten years now. While I am yet to do anything for this fandom, I have passed the beta tests in a few different Harry Potter archives, and have done many a story in the Inuyasha fandom. 
Story types/topics I will not beta: I will not beta things with overly graphic sex scenes. 
Additional Comments: I have been told that I'm difficult to work with because I am a bit of a nit picker. If something doesn't look right, I will tell you. I am not trying to be a jerk, I'm trying to be constructive so you can make you story better.

Beta experience: I don't have any beta experience on here or on fanfiction.net, but I'm excited to try it out! I love to read, and I love to write, so I think I would be pretty good at beta-reading.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I'm pretty open-minded, so give me whatever you got!
Additional Comments: Even though I haven't actually done any beta reading, I think I would be really good at helping authors with spelling, punctuation, and grammar. I also think I would be good at helping with character developement and making sure the writing is clear and makes sense. Also, I'm from the South, so if anyone needs help in that area, I would be a great help!

Beta experience: Many moons ago, I used to beta often for a friend of mine then I stopped betaing for the most part but I still do it occasionally. 
Story types/topics I will not beta: There really isn't anything, I suppose. Too graphic of violence, rape or torture might be pushing it, but I'd still read it. 
Additional Comments: I can be really blunt and most likely I will tell you straight up exactly what I thought and I'll tell you as nice as is physically possible for me to do. I'm always willing to lend a hand to a fellow writer because I know what it's like to just crave feedback and not get it and I know how frustrating it can be. I do bite, but it's just a little nibble.
