I find this highly amusing.

I turned in a beta test and application for Checkmated.com after finishing Book 7 (so around August 2007) and never heard a word back. Last night, I got an email saying that they would like to have my beta skills and my test and they "have decided that you would be an excellent addition to our staff."

Apparently my characterization, grammar and punctuation skills aren't good enough to write my own stories. They're only good enough to fuck up someone else's.

Hm, after careful consideration (or not) I think I will be declining that position.

Hold on...this is the same you who was told your work couldn't be helped by a beta working with it?

You can't be handed over to a CM beta but you can BE a CM beta?

I think my head is going to explode.

Yep, that's me!

Aren't you glad they're so consistent over at CM? *drips w/ sarcasm*
