WHAT IS BETA TESTING

As someone who has grown up with computers (over 30 years now), I truly know the definition of beta testings, and have been a beta tester.

I was a beta tester for a program that I use for clients about a year ago. It was for a store and of course really important that it worked. I installed it and couldn't even get the set up to run. Do I want to beta test stuff like that? NOT A CHANCE. I thought on this we would at least get a free copy of the software but no - so I bailed...I'm not going to waste my time on something like that.

Did I sign up to be a Sploofus beta tester? You bet. Because they are listening to the bug reports, I'm seeing the improvements, and I know that lost points, missed word puzzles, glitches, etc will all be worth it in the end, because after all, it's only points.

Beta testing is not like everyone getting tickets to Six Flags except for you. There are ups and downs and they gotta get the roller coaster on the right track so everyone doesn't toss their cookies at once.

While I will say this is the easiest beta testing I've done - I take it seriously as do many others. It's a no whining zone - it's a just the facts - it's an "except to encounter an issues that will mess something up and let Justin know so he can fix it" kinda thing.

Anyway - if I had not caught the beta testing sign up - I'd be okay...but that's just me

For the most part it's a hell of a lot of fun- lots more to do and the glitches really aren't that many. I think people are in for a pleasant surprise.

When everyone comes on board it's the testers who are going to have to deal with a month of "ooh-ah".

For Justin so loved the players that he gave forth his only begotten beta testers so that all might one day eventually play Kerblunk. Robin 4:20

Just to be very clear - I'm HAPPY I'm a beta tester - and that I'm not on the outside waiting for the release...I'm just trying to help appease those who feel left out - after all it's not ALL fun and games (well it is - but - it's bugs too) - We are swatting them for you so you don't have to!
