Feb. 3rd, 2006 @ 03:27 pm Experts!
There is a new feature of this community. Experts are members who have expressed an interest in a particular area, for example, Harry Potter or Buffy. The experts' names will appear on the userinfo page.

Experts review all fanfics submitted within their category via the comment system. So for example if you were a Harry Potter Expert and somebody posted a link to their Harry Potter fanfic, you would read it and write a review which didn't give away the story but gave readers some idea of what to expect.

So far we have a Harry Potter Expert, a Pirates of the Caribbean Expert and a His Dark Materials Expert.

To apply for Expert status, comment to this post or email one_hand_clapping@hotmail.co.uk

Experts cannot review their own fanfics. The idea of the feature is for an outsider's opinion. The place for your own review is the story summary or main body of the post.

Um, I'm not sure how into anime you guys are, but I could definitely be a Fruits Basket expert. I'd probably also consider myself a Full Metal Panic expert. (another anime, if you don't know...)

For non-anime.... I'm an expert on the show Due South and the Star Wars movies. I'd include the Star Wars books, but I'm terribly behind on them.

Yes, I do write fanfic. Not much, yet, and it's not really all that good... At least I don't think it is.

But yeah, I'll spread the word. I'm not hugely involved in lj yet... I'm brand new basically so I'm still kind of feeling my way around, but I'll put in a good word for you guys where I can. This community seems like a cool idea. ^_^
