A Few Good Testers Needed

I promised a major announcement this weekend, and here it is!

As the Digital Edition project nears completion, we want to make sure it passes inspection before we go live. Do you want to be one of the first to see each Digital Edition of Video Watchdog and offer feedback before it is released in December?

There is work involved, but this just might be an opportunity you don't want to pass up!

It Could Be You!

We need some serious testers who are willing to go through a checklist of tasks on each edition to make sure the videos play, the Table of Contents is correct, the pages look good, links work, and a host of other things on the following devices:


OS includes: Apple, Android, Linux, Windows, Kindle Fire

What's Involved?

Testers who are chosen will have access to all 176 editions for 30 days through a private blog with links to the editions, and on tablets and phones with a special subscription login.

The test period is November 1-30, which means an average of 6 issues need to be tested daily. Phone and Tablet testing requires downloading the edition (10mb - 60mb) with or without video content (it can be streamed to save space), and can be deleted once it is tested. Computer testing involves no downloads, but Flash is needed on your PC.

Testers follow a checklist for guidance. Changes that are found need to be logged in as a comment on the private testing blog.

A partial checklist

All testers must have their own device (computer, phone, tablet) and be able to access the blog from a computer or other device that will let them add comments to the blog page. Testers need to be available for the whole month of November because some titles will appear mid-November.

What's the Reward?

If you are selected and complete the testing program, you get the complete Digital Archive playable on all devices!
$702 value!


Contact us using the form on the right by Sunday, October 26. Please include:

1. Your name and email address

2. The device you want to test on (computer type, browser, tablet or phone type, etc.)

3. Any special qualifications or experience you have with various devices, proofing, gaming, following written directions or even reading Video Watchdog will also be helpful for us to know.

There's More!

We are so pleased with the quality of the editions, we can't wait to share how they look with you! So during the testing time, we'll post a few editions on this blog for you to see and comment on as well. This way, you can all be a part of the testing process!

If you don't want to miss anything, subscribe to this blog by email on the right. We'll notify you when the next post appears.

Can't wait to hear from you!
