Beta-Testing New Forum Software
« on: January 11, 2010, 09:37:33 pm »
After a brief evaluation of SMF 2.0 (the next version of our forum platform) on another site I'm setting up, it looks quite promising, and I'd like to start evaluating it for our use.  Plus, since I'm building a website to go with it, it'd be nice not to have to write the security core (the part that interfaces with the forums) twice.

So.

If anyone would like to be part of the beta-testing process, send an email to beta@furryteens.org with your username.  You'll not only be part of testing the new forums, but you'll be involved in some of the testing for the new website as well, when the time comes.

All invites are subject to admin approval.  Anyone is welcome, but preference will be given to long-time/high-traffic users and users with beta testing/software development/web development experience.  If you don't get an invite, don't worry, you're not missing much.

Now, for the people who get the invites, when will they receive them, if you don't mind me asking?

Whenever I get around to setting up the beta site.  I wish I could give a more definite answer, but I have a LOT to do that needs to get done before I start messing around with FT Beta.

Ok, that answers that question I had...
Good luck with the site.

Invitations went out today, let me know if you requested one (or if you're a moderator) and didn't receive the email.

Natasha, I can rape the parser all day, but what do you really want us to test? I mean, yeah, the things that I'm checking are important to know - anyone can be an idiot - but what do you really want us to check, more than anything?

This is a post for the beta site, and I've been too busy to really get there all day.  Have patience :-)

Natasha, I would like to offer my apologies...
I have been a bit busy working on a few things lately, so I have not been able to get to beta in a few days...
