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*
Fascinating. The timing in particular.
*butts in* I think you're right. This makes me want to submit a fic and see what happens! *shakes head*
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.
Come to think of it, you ought to accept it. Betas get to self-publish, you know!
*Made me giggle out loud*
Oh, I'm sorry..that is just priceless!
Almost woke the kid up I was giggling so hard.
I think I would too!
Well, not wake up your kid, but laugh really hard!!!
*so wants to meet you*
*facepalm* Oy vey. Their consistency is just mind blowing.
ROTFL!! Are they for real-real and not for play-play?
Six months later, and coincidentallyright after all this? Oh, dear.
This whole situation is just so funny I can't stop laughing
I vote that you take the position and then start publishing the fics that are listed as rejected on this comm. ;)
Your icon is so seriously OOC. Molly Weasley would never use profanity. O_o.
omfg you're right! i must be interpreting her incorrectly
The way I understand it, becoming a beta would be no help in getting other people's fics published, but you can self-publish your own work without Council approval. On my original understanding, all fics had to be approved by the majority of the Council, but later that proved to not be the case, as I have been told that many fics are approved/denied by a vote of at least three people on either the Council or the Head Girls. Plus, I have heard one or two Council members state that they have not, or do not choose to read certain types of fics, some of which have gone through the vetting process.
Of course, this is my understanding of the process, so I may be completely wrong.

Zat's how it was when I was a HG. Course, that seems like a bajillion years ago, now... >.> But it was a few of the same people on the team.
This makes me wanna go write some fic. Really a lot. Hmm...
Just popping in to say I love your icon! That is one of my all time favorite movies and that character always cracks me up!
