QA (Quality Assurance) is like the middle child in the list up there that no one pays much attention to, but trust me, we need QA folks all the time. More QA folks trying to break new stuff means fewer things break when it goes live. QA staff are one of the most important things we use and abuse here, and we can always use more of them.

The best part is, you only need to know how to play on Avlis, and how to follow a checklist of things to do on a special QA server when testing stuff (we even let you DM there!). If you can play, read instructions, and post a reply after playing, you probably have a good chance of being approved. QA feedback is a big factor in the development of new stuff too!

You also get to hang out with the cool folks on the dev side of the staff server and see what we really say about stuff (mostly cat pics from Hamlet, but we have our moments :roll: ).

Not all that many cat pics, either. -Hamlet

Want to add a link to this thread on the main page of the wiki and website?

Or create a brand new page on the wiki, instead of a link to the forum.
I can make that page if needed.
I could also make a Google Forms, that sends to a DB, for all those questions people need to answer. Just formats it a bit easier for people.

We do have a Wiki entry to that end ( https://wiki.avlis.org/Giving_Back ) and the avlis.org side Menu is continuously revised. Keep an eye out!

Out team is very tiny yet mighty! We've a great system for processes and procedures and abilities to mentor and possibly even train.

If there's ever been an interest in helping out in a more practical way, please consider donating your time. There's positions we absolutely need more people from CCC to QA.

Please take a look at the descriptions above and see where you might be able to contribute an hour or more a week.

If you don't have the time, please consider a monetary donation.

Thanks for helping us keep things moving forward behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly and additional features.
