Spring, oh spring! I need it. Allergies and all.

I agree, I like the "sense of community" I get from responding to friends. It's my happy time!

Wince is a good word. I think I really, really like those authors who thank their beta(s) and then add: "Any remaining errors are wholly my responsibility." If nothing else, it reminds the reader that the beta was NOT the final word on how things got said!

I'll have to keep my eyes out for someone who says that... maybe suggest it gently to authors I beta for!

I think my annoyance with fest anon betas (and goodness, sometimes authors too) is when the fest posts to a website archive, where people tend to link (or like me, go back to comfort-read from time to time). If the fics and art are going to be maintained in a prominent location, surely they can be "finished" with the names of authors - and betas.

At any rate, perhaps I should ask the mods I beta for if they could mention something about completing the headers (if its archive-y) or adding the missing bits like what the fest was, and the betas, when the author reposts it elsewhere. Maybe they already do, or maybe they don't.
