Hey, Vesteria. Davidii here.
The tester program has been a real mixed bag since I joined as a contractor way back when. I’m led to believe that it has been that way since long before that, also. I understand some of the community is dissatisfied with how seemingly non-rigorous the process was to become a tester, and I tend to echo that sentiment.
More than once I had to immediately remove someone’s tester rank because I felt they were not up to snuff. Now that I’m Vesteria’s Technical Director (recent promotion), I have the authority and responsibility to make sure that our ramshackle quality assurance team meets higher standards.
This started with a purge of all current testers. Even the good ones. If you were affected by this, I hope you understand, but I want to make sure that we do this right. The same standards for everyone. A meritocracy.
That in mind, if you would like to become a tester, please tackle this form. I’ll be looking through them in the coming weeks and promoting people as I see fit. We only need so many testers and this will be on a first-come, first-reviewed format, so if you think you can cut it and you want in, get your application in as soon as possible.
Here’s looking forward to a better, less buggy, more stable future for Vesteria.
