Alpha Testers

  • 1655

We're looking for 3 alpha testers to help us finish the revised course.

If you're interested please apply in the incubator to be a contributor, there is no separate way to apply to be an alpha tester.

The perk is to get to try out some of the new content and also to become part of the Welsh team on Duolingo.

I'm not clear quite what sort of people you're looking for, but I've thrown my hat into the ring.

Great, yes I should have made it clear we're not looking for fluent speakers at all but anyone who considers themselves a learner.

Level 22 is a high level to have achieved - da iawn.

Hmm, I'm afraid I seem to have broken it; I thought it would be a good idea to follow the account from here to remind myself & keep track via activity, but doing this apparently collapsed the delicate parallel reality it existed in and now it's all changed back to tree 1.0... Apologies! I did not know that this would happen!
Can it be fixed to show the new tree again?

Hi, I've been testing it all out and it seems to show the new tree but strangely with every unit duplicated, although finishing one seems to finish the duplicate too.

https://incubator-testbed.duolingo.com/ will take you to the testing page, it's a bit slow loading.

Greetings2 seems to be permanently locked at the moment, hopefully you're past that unit already, it not there is a work around.

Let me know how it goes.

It is still only showing me the old tree on the testing page, so I have nothing new to test. I've left messages to a couple of admins about the problem, but I don't know if they ever look at their streams. If you have any sort of expedited line to communication to the Duolingo staff, perhaps you could ask them to look at this, too.

This what I see when I look at the testbed, is it the same as what you see?

There is apparently an ongoing problem with a number of courses with the testers not seeing the correct course units.

Oh dear, I was going to sign up but the sign-up page seemed to specify fluent Welsh speakers. You've probably got enough volunteers now, is it worth still applying?

Thanks for the applications, there is a bit of a bug at the moment with the test-bed so we'll leave adding extra people for a while.
