Beta Reader Profiles - it's fall clean-up time!

ALERT: In correcting the ratings, something else broke, so now when you try to edit your beta profile it won't let you. We're working on it. (THANKS E-FICTION, YOU OBSOLETE P.O.S.)

Hello, lovely Nine Lives members!

It’s time for us to do a semi-annual updating of our beta resources.

If you are listed as a Beta in Nine Lives’ Beta section, we would appreciate it if you could take a few moments to look over your Beta preferences and complete/update any information as you see fit. Click on “Account Info > Edit Beta Profile” to update any preferences you have for material you will accept reading for Beta purposes. (NOTE: the ratings previously shown on the beta profile don't match the ratings we currently use. The beta profile template has now been changed to reflect the rating system Nine Lives uses, so please don't forget to check those and mark the ratings you are willing to beta!)

If you would no longer like to offer Beta services, now would be the time to remove yourself from the list. Click on the tab “Account Info > Edit Beta Profile > Beta Reader Status > I do not want to be a beta” and then submit, to remove yourself from the list.

Once you have completed/updated/deleted your profile, please send a PM to AlannasTara to let her know you have completed updating/deleting. You have until October 1st to update/delete your beta profile. On October 2nd, any beta profiles not updated/deleted will be removed by the admins.

We, and the many authors and readers of Nine Lives, thank you for offering your services!

This is great news. It will make it so much easier to find folks who are willing and able to beta with an updated list. And our fic will be better for it. Thanks admins!

Yokai, we tried this once before (getting people to update their listings) a couple of months back, but without putting an end date on it and deleting dead accounts afterward. Hopefully this will make for a more effective beta list.
