Dear all,

As I've got some more time on my hands recently so I will be able to make some improvements to the site, which includes updating the software. If anyone has any feedback to provide regarding the site or any suggestions for improvements please let me know. You can either post here or message me in private.

Also, if you are fluent in another language, you are willing to help out and have got some free time, please shout out. We are always looking for people who can translate our FAQ, which contains information for testers and authors.

Thanks,
Andy

Earlier this year I wondered where and how testers would be able to find missions that are ready to be tested.
Unfortunately authors don't seem to post in the regular forum, that they are searching for testers.
Tannar pointed me to this page : Groups
The problem is, that there is no indication on when these groups were created,
whether they still might accept testers or something like a 'date of last post',
that would help you figure out which groups are still active and not released yet
and therefore worth trying to volunteer as tester.

I might help translating some parts of the FAQ to german
(as long as don't expect me to talk PHP fluent ;o )
Seems like there is a big amount of untranslated text left.

I'm sure we can sort something out that could better inform prospective testers and we would be mostly reliant on authors telling us when they're not accepting new testers, etc.

Thank you for volunteering :) There's quite a lot indeed. I'll message you with some more info.

I've just noticed a possible confusion with the way posting times are reported. Is 12:56 am 00:56 or 12:56 in the 24-hour clock?

Hey ffox, the clock would normally be in 12hr format, in most cases there should be an am or pm by it.

Sorry - I'm ex-military and had forgotten that 00:00 hours is 12 am in civilian parlance. :oops: I've changed my preferences!

Sorry Andy, I didn't see this before. Are you still lazing about with nothing to do?

I think the only thing I find awkward for me is the location of the Search bar. I don't use it that often so I always seem to forget it's at the bottom of the page as it's not immediately visible in my window. Other than that, I find everything very user friendly.
