Requesting 5 HTRYN Grad volunteers to test inside HollysWritingClasses.com

Rough tests on the first section of HollysWritingClasses.com are done.

I’m now asking for 5 students with current accounts (you’ve been using your account within the past month or two) who are graduates of HTRYN and who would be willing to go in over the weekend and use the first part of the software we’ve built.

This is still pretty rough. Rough enough that you’ll receive a “Wave 1 Tester” pip for your heroic efforts in bughunting this part of the software.

First five volunteers will receive invitations either late tomorrow or Saturday. Make sure I have good contact info for you when you post here.

Added Later

I have my five testers. If we end up making significant changes as a result of this test, I’ll invite the next folks who volunteered, in order of volunteering, and you’ll get special tester pips, too.

Thank you to everyone who’s volunteered.
You guys are wonderful. 😀

    Should you still need testers, I’m available. Would it have to be in a certain window of time, because a lot of things that Americans run tend to be around 3 or 4am in the Adelaide (Aus) time zone.

    I’m available this weekend to do some testing!

    It seems as though you have all the volunteers that you need. Should you need a backup I’m in as long as it’s before the 8th. On the 8th I disappear into the wilderness for a week and won’t have internet access of any kind.

    Holly, I’m supposed to be deeeep in NaNo but not quite yet. 😉 I’d love to go in and search out some bugs once you guide me on what to find and how to swat.

  • Yvette Roserie Nov 6, 2015 @ 7:40

    If you still need volunteers I’m available to help now.

    thanks

    I’ll go take a look as well if you still need people.

  • Dianna Nov 6, 2015 @ 7:38

    If there are still places available, I’ll give it a shot. Tried to reply via phone as I was coming home, but it wouldn’t let me type in details. Reloaded page and still no go.

    I’ve read all the HTRYN lessons, but I’m only halfway done with the revision. If that will work for you, I’d love to help out. 😀

  • connie cockrell Nov 6, 2015 @ 7:06

    Sure, I volunteer.

    • Holly Nov 6, 2015 @ 9:55

      Thank you, Connie. You’re my fifth. I’ll get the link and info out to you as soon as Dan signals that he’s ready on his end.

        Holly,
        I never received the email. I’ve even checked my spam folder. I’m so sorry!

  • Marie-Claire Nov 6, 2015 @ 6:47

    I have no land line phone and no broadband and am entirely relying on mobile hotspot AKA Warm Patch but if it works on this it will work anywhere so if you want me to do anything let me know! MC

    • Holly Nov 6, 2015 @ 6:51

      You’re in. THANK YOU!

      I’ll send your login details as soon as Dan says “Go.”

  • Preslaysa Williams Nov 6, 2015 @ 6:45

    I’ll volunteer to take a look!

      Thank you, Preslaysa. Not sure where the first thanks went, but you’re in. I’ll send you the login details when I get the go-ahead.

      BTW, I deleted your email from here. I have it already on the inside, and didn’t want anyone else to see it.

  • carol Nov 6, 2015 @ 6:32

    I could manage some time this weekend to help out.

    • Holly Nov 6, 2015 @ 7:14

      Thanks, Carol. I’ll get your info to us as soon as I can.

    If I get writte instructions, I’m game. The video-Chat Software you linked didn’t work for me.

    • Holly Nov 5, 2015 @ 20:48

      So far, it hasn’t worked for anyone.

      I’m probably going to end up cancelling my subscription to it and going back to the drawing board on permanent promo space for my students.

    • Holly Nov 6, 2015 @ 6:51

      By the way, you’re in. Thank you. I’ll send you your login details as soon as Dan says I can. 😀

    Why volunteers? Because pulling randomly from the mailing list didn’t work AT ALL.
