Assignments are sent! & Beta Resources

Hello doers of darkness -- thank you again for signing up for Kaleidoscope! All assignments have been sent. If you signed up for Kaleidoscope and have not received an email about your assignments, please leave a comment here, contact us at darkadmn AT gmail DOT com, or PM us at [livejournal.com profile] darkadmn/[personal profile] dark_administrator.

If you've written a Dear Doer of Darkness letter, please leave a link here or just browse through the post for inspiration.

As assignments period begins, it's time to start thinking about betas. We have a Chromatic Beta mailing list that participants can utilize. However, we would like to also organize a Kaleidoscope-specific beta resources post so that there are more opportunities for participants to find a beta.

To that end, if you can offer beta services for any of the nominated fandoms or cultures, ethnicities, languages, religions or other identities with which these sources deal, please leave a comment with the following information:

Contact information: e-mail address, Dreamwidth/LiveJournal/etc.
account, IM account and/or other kind of communication tool.
Type of fanworks you can beta: artworks, graphics, stories and/or vids.
Relevant information: fandoms, cultures, ethnicities, languages, religions or other identities for which you can beta and any other information.

Thank you for your help!

This entry is posted at Dreamwidth and Livejournal, and you may comment at either platform.

*sigh* Not sure if this is how it works, but yes, I can do it. Didn't sign up more formally because my exams are closing in uncomfortably, but I'm sure one beta job can't hurt. :)
