Alpha Tester

Alpha Tester are a few deviants, who will be able to test new deviantART features, before Beta Testers get the chance to see them.

While everyone can decide to be a Beta Tester on their own, the Alpha Tester get picked by deviantART staff.
Beside the ability to talk to staff and developers - to give direct feedback about upcoming features - your task will be to test those features for bugs, so that as many as possible can be ironed out before they are released to Beta Testers.

:note: Alpha Testers can not be recognized by any special symbols. They keep the symbol they had before. But they will get a special badge - a bug that got squished.

How to apply? Who can apply?

Once new Alpha Testers are needed the information will be published through the group :devdevbug: and you will have to send an application in, explaining why you should be picked.

:note: Anyone can apply, but it is required that you are a Beta Tester at that time.

While not a requirement it is also useful, if you...
• love finding bugs, especially if you like to fiddle around with new things, that often don't run well right away

• being familiar with the deviantART site in general and having some knowledge about how things work

• have some knowlegde of HTML or maybe programming languages, to support developers with extra info about bugs

• are not afraid to suggest new things to staff and developers or have ideas of how to improve what is already there
