    My OS is currently Windows XP Professional SP1a. i also run two other pc's which have windows 2003 server and one which is testing windows xp professional SP2.

    I spend about 4 hours a day on the internet a day. sometimes can be less.

    3 star.

    Time spent online:
    3-4 hours weekday evenings (GMT), normally connected (downloading) from 18:00 till 06:30.


    Why do I want to become a tester?
    I enjoy using many P2P apps and have pretty much tried everyone out there. Unfortunately I dont have any programming knowledge but I do have an eye for detail when it comes to the usability (ease of use, GUI etc.) of applications.

    No

    I'm currently in the process of designing a WAPsite.

    No offence, but all the people volunteering use XP or W2k
    I think this program should also be tested on the 98/Me machines.

    That a coincidence or you trying to kiss ass? (j/k )


    I have to admit that so far, there isn't as many applying as was originally thought would Just in case it wasn't clear before, you don't need to be the best beta tester in the world to join up, or even a credited beta tester. What is looked for is those who can spot things that shouldn't be there and can form an opinion on how the program can be improved.

    If you think that the damn ClipIt assistant in Microsoft Office is bloody annoying, or that Kazaa could have improved the way it made sure its files were quality, you have all practically of the qualities that are asked in SwapGate Beta Testers

    So - Time to explain the qualities to get more people involved

    Member Rank (3 Stars)
    The reason that normal Members was wanted is because what is looked for is those who have some experience of P2P but not enough to classify them as P2P gurus.

    However, there is a slim chance that there can be some exceptions made for one/five-star members if they're too good to pass. True, this will be very few (we're talking about 1-4 each side), but Junior or Senior members can apply and still join the team.

    So no-one's currently unable to apply

    We need to know your OS
    There's a good reason for this - Currently, SwapGate will work for any Windows which is 98 or up. This means that it supports Win98/ME/2000/XP. Unfortunately, it kinda strikes Linux & Mac users out But there is a way around it

    If you have more than one computer and/or run more than one OS, and one of those OSs is Windows 98/up, feel free to apply. You could also add the extra OSs as well, as you could be able to help with tests involving compatibility for these currently unsupported OSs An example might be helping to use Linux's WINE to run SwapGate. If it works, you could help document how its done and might get credit in another way

    How much time do you spend online
    The more the better, but remember that spending time online and spending time using SwapGate are two different things. A person who uses their daily two hours helping testing is just as valuable as someone who spends only a quarter of 8 hours testing.

    As this point, time spent online is only relevant to a point So feel free to apply, even if you're only on for a little bit every so often

    Why do you want to become a beta tester (details)
    The easiest mistake to do is at this point, as many beta tester applicants end up posting what they've done before and how they can help us (I've reviewed testing applications before, though I'm glad I'm not this time ). The question isn't about what or how, but why.

    A novel on why isn't needed. Neither are emotional stories. Having a blinding reason, unlike "****** of the Year" awards, isn't required. We're just interested in why you want to do it, no matter how normal or small it seems.

    My reason was that I wanted to help a friend. Others just wanted to help the project out. Just give a reason, and make it honest - The chance of an application being rejected for its reason are remote if it's done honestly.

    Did you help to test other software ?
    It helps, but it isn't necessary to have done other beta tests before. This is mainly so you know what "beta testing" means, especially in the risks you take in using it. :helpsmile:

    (My) Example - "Three years, I took part in a public beta-test for an online game known as Starpeace by Monte Cristo games." It isn't much but it's something, which is what is preferred

    Do you run a website ? (if yes: what kind of content?)
    This is a question of interest, but having a website isn't necessary to get in. Though if you do, we want to know what your site is for - Chances are that it might help SwapGate in the future (but don't make one for the sake of it )

    If you have an URL to your site(s), that'll help


    There we go - Hope that helps. And don't hesitate to apply if you want to - You lose nowt with a rejection after all
