Hi dear community & prototype tester!
Since now around two thirds of the prototype testers have replied, it’s time to give all of you great people in the community some information how we are going to handle the prototypes!
Now, first off - since there are quite a bunch of potential tester that have not replied within the 72 hour limit, and we’re making space for community members that hopefully will be up to the task & reply!
Please message me via PM within 48 hours with your shipping address! If not, we’ll give someone else the chance to test the prototypes!
Since that is out of the way, let’s talk about how we want you to test the prototypes & share your experiences! First of all, everyone who took up the chance now has the cool title “Prototype Tester” behind his name!
Then we plan to create 2 categories Prototype Bugs & Prototype Experiences. Inside the Bugs category, only people with the title “Prototype Tester” can create a topic/reply, while everyone can see the topic. We decided to not let anyone comment in there, to make sure we don’t have to go through houndreds of replies when making 1 topic into a bug-report that we’re going to fix.
The second category is the Prototype Experiences where “Prototype Tester” can create new topics, and everyone can reply to them (and of course see them).
But it would be boring if we didn’t allow you to post anything, right? So let me give you a short list of what the prototype testers will not be allowed to do:
- Intentionally damage/destroy the prototypes or open them up
- Install malicious software
Other things like installing new software, taking pictures with the prototype, running tests, checking out the screen brightness, watching netflix with it until late into the night, taking it out to a nice candlelight dinner - all of those things and more are totally fine!
In terms of which tester will test what, we will not limit anyone! This means, every tester can test everything, however we’d like to get the opinion of some testers on certain topics for sure (to get a good view from someone who does something professionally or as a hobby) (Please note that I’ll add people once they confirmed their shipping address):
3D working: @Wallace_Bertholdi_de - I and many community members are looking forward how the V holds up with a 3D workload!
Video editing: @Tamara - Also something that many people are interested about how well the video editing on the V is holding up!
Programming: (To follow) - All the code and compiling the heart could desire! Please give your feedback on this, I’m pretty sure people are going to ask quite a bunch of questions as well about this one
So, I think that’s it for this update!
The first prototypes should go out this week, the rest following next week!
