Okay, here's the one I posted on the olds forums recently:

Name: Céli
Beta Experience: Nothing official. Beta reading school stuff, and actually I love finding mistakes in books that recently came out, I've found many. I used to write a lot, not anymore though, but I'm very understanding.
Strengths: Vocabulary, at least my class says so (I guess because I can talk mother tongue french, which has many latin words), Grammar and Spelling (because I am German, and German has so much hard, latin-related Grammar), checking if it makes sense in the rules of the Twilight books (gosh, did I phrase that correctly? Well, Stephenie's Q&A, the werewolves and vampires and how they work, Bella's past, etc. is what I mean)
I love long stuff, long sentences and paragraphs etc.
Weaknesses: I'm no mother tongue english-speaker. That's part of it, but what I mostly mean is that sometimes I don't understand stuff that is typical american, i.e. jokes, bands, TV series and movies, foods, base-ball and other sports, history, shops, clothes, celebrities, sarcasm, slang and this kind of stuff.) (But hey, see the other side: I know travelling and the world well, politics, Europe, international stuff, I'm very open-minded about everything, i.e. sense of humour, sexuality, new things...)
Also, I'm not very ponctual and don't often have a lot of time, sorry.
And sometimes I'm not easy-going enough, I am too strict on mistakes and have troubles finding the sense in stuff.
What ratings will you do?: Anything
What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon, het, slash): Anything
What Fandoms will you do?: Not many, unfortunetly. Harry Potter, Twilight Series, The Host, some other stuff. Just ask me.
Will you do crossovers?: I would, yes, if you want me to
Availability: Always, because I often miss out on some sleep to work anyway, but of course I like to have a lot of time. I'm often on the net though, so you usually don't have to wait. PM me and I'll give you my e-mail address.

Name: Kelrose
Beta Experience: None, yet. I am currently editing my friend's novel, chapter by chapter. She hopes to get it published, so it is serious writing. While my Beta experince is somewhat lacking, I have plenty of experince in reading fanfiction. :)
Strengths: I know all the books better than I know history. Sad, but very true. I've read Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse at least 10 times each, and know most of the bonus fact Stephenie has added. I'm constantly mentally correcting fanfiction while reading, because little facts will be off.
Weaknesses: I only will do the Twilight Saga fanfictions that stay true to the novel. Meaning, no humans that shouldn't be. Sorry.
What ratings will you do?: Anything under Mature.
What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon): I prefer canon, but anything works.
What Fandoms will you do?: Twilight
Will you do crossovers?: Probably not.
Availability: I'm very available. Feel free to just try me out, I won't mind if you have multipule betas. I can easily correct, make suggustions, and fix grammar issues.
