I present to you the next step in making ReasonTalk the #1 place for Reason users, Refill creators and Rack Extension developers alike!
It's no secret that developers often miss all the tiny details in their product. As a developer, you're blinded from staring at the same details and algorithms over and over again. That's why it's a normal practice to have a group of selected beta testers. These beta testers get early access to the product while it's being built, reaping the benefits of the product while it's still under development and ultimately, helping the developer making the finished product as complete and bug free as possible.
So why? Because ReasonTalk has a large collection of Reason users and therefore potential beta testers. All you have to do is pick 'em!
Developer: After registering
As a registered developer, you will be added to the "Developer" user group on ReasonTalk. Furthermore, you will be the group leader of the beta testing group dedicated to your sub forum. If we use Selig Audio as an example, we will do the following:
- Add your forum user to the "Developer" user group
- Create a sub forum called "Selig Audio"
- Create a group called "Selig Audio Beta testers", and add the developer profile as the group leader and give that group standard read/write permissions to the sub forum in question
The administration of your beta tester group is done via the UCP (User control panel) under "Usergroups". You will find this area by clicking the profile icon in the forum menu, and navigate to User Control panel. Or, bookmark the direct link: http://reasontalk.com/ucp.php
If you want to register for a developer profile, send me (Kenni) a private message. If applicable, please include a reference to previous products, or a sample of some sort. Refer to the following template:
Company/supplier name: Example Audio Ltd.
This will be the name of your developer sub forum and the user group for the beta testers
