Can someone volunteer to teach us about betta conformation?

Good day everyone! I am looking for someone to teach me and anyone else who wants to know, how to identify proper betta conformation. I know some of the basics but I wanted to see if someone could teach me more. My first idea would be for someone to show us betta's with good conformation and then show us other pictures and test us on our ability to judge the betta's correctly. I often see people speak at great length about betta's with correct form and while I have a basic idea of the perfect halfmoon I feel that I am lacking. My only source of info, is the article from betty spendens on the perfect halfmoon. I am looking for someone who has the expereince to teach me these things not someone who thinks they do because they looked at a bunch of pictures. (no offense to anyone ) I just want the "expert" oppinion here. Thanks in advance everyone!

I don't consider myself an expert but I have a good idea what makes a betta a greta betta. You might want to join the IBC, they have a new forum and you can get the information from the best of the best.
This article explains HM form VERY well:

The best place to start is the IBC standards.
