I'm Only Qualified to Fuck Up Other People's Work [Mar. 28th, 2008|01:44 pm]
Checkmated Rejects


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.

Fascinating. The timing in particular.

Now that I think about it, this happened once before, where there was anti-CM sentiment and people ended up being courted and/or converted.

Beware...assimilation complete!

Come to think of it, you ought to accept it. Betas get to self-publish, you know!
