A competent, reliable one, anyway

You know..... When I first started this site back in feburary, I didn't know how to quote... lol
Anyways. What I think is crappy is that no one I think has the time to go through all the peoples comments. I would, but I'm probably not going to be asked to. I still might just for the lolz, but I would need about two weeks of undisturbed internet connection and battery life just ot get through the Action game comments and find reliable testers.

I also really think there should be online essays or like some sign up sheet.... Maybe... THis corymn person will open a thread, SIGN UPS FOR BETA I. open it for about an hour. then lock it. Go through all the people that filled out some form thingie that you posted on the topic, go to their profile if their sign up thing sound appropriate, check their comments, etc. If you don't have enough beta testers, stick a post on the first beta sign up, saying another will be opened the next day. Make a BETA SIGN UPS II. Give the same sign up, and close it in like 45 minutes. Thin out the sign up forms and then just repeat if you still need beta testers.
As always, This is just MY OPINION.

What's the problem with invitations? If the user is unavailable or unwilling you withdraw the invitation and invite someone else.

Yeah 1337, that's been there since Larry got his interview :)

Nah, a month or two beforeee the interview...

You find these things when you frequently check beta.armorgames.com because you miss the old times....and you somehow wish that the old beta site would come back...just so you can read through the forums, and see people like Switchfoot being model citizens...

So annoyed it got hacked, I miss my original archive thread...

@Knight:

It just seems to me that the developers may not be picking the right individuals with invitations. I could be wrong. I could be skeptical and paranoid. My opinion is with signups, the developers are eliminating a couple steps to the beta testing process.

Well, isn't that why the developers will actually watch the users and the forums? I really don't mind which way it goes.. or whether there is a combination or not. I believe we will have limited sign-ups and from there gradual invitations.

@Jezz: Heyz, it's just my whole 'sincebeta' thingo...would be ruined. LOL! Really, idc...would just be nice to be recognised for loyalty or something...

@Moonfairy: There's a thing called timezones. It isnt fair if someone wakes up one morning to see a locked thread about beta submissions just because that they missed because of a good nights sleep.

@Knight: Some person hacked into the beta site and took it over. Was quite lol actually...I think he called people fat...

True. This could be like the Great Compromise of AG, if you like U.S. government. Bicameral Beta testing! :D
