Beta Testers

I think he's looking to test products... not looking for others to test for him.

My recommendations...

#1. keep your ear to the ground and your eye on the horizon... in short, just keep yourself in the know on all new products coming out and the second press-releases start flying, check for advertisements asking for testers.

#2. Don't ask unless it's posted. Going to any company and saying "Hey... Can I have the latest cutting edge technology for free ahead of release? Oh... and I might type you up a paragraph telling you what I think of it" just makes you sound like every other person wanting stuff for free.

Example... Andy from ZDS has probably never asked to test anything unless it was posted to ask. What he does is he performs all these tests, types up all the reports and publishes them for free. Then come time, if a company is looking for testers, Andy's name is to be found everywhere being praised for the thorough testing and reports he has done.

You do realise that you sound really pathetic, you are basically asking for free products. You can't go about asking companies for testing rights. You'd have to become know for being helpful or or be someone very knowledgeable in Ions and electronics (if you are intending on wanting a board).
Oh by the way, before you defend yourself, knowing how to take your Ion apart and putting it back together isn't a qualifying trait

So I guess you're saying that anyone who knows anything about paintball has to have been a member of PBN before 2K5, is that right? Or is it that if you haven't been a member for very long that you must be 14 years old? I get so sick and tired of hearing about this 2K5 crap, could you please tell me how having a join date prior to 2K5 makes you any smarter than a PBN noob? From the way you write and spell I would have to say that being a "2K5'r" isn't making the lot of you any more intelligent. Ok, let's hear it; let me know why I don't know what I'm talking about.

With free new awsome product, who wouldn't want to be a beta tester? But I highly doubt that most random people won't be doing most of the testing. They usually like to stick to people that they know -- and rest assured PB companies know ALOT of people that have already tested products for them in a large range of activities, from playing in the rain to playing in the mud.

But he is helpful giving sophmoric 2k4 advice to the 2k5ers!!!



JimmyBeam, you might be under a non-disclosure agreement!

And as far as asking to do it, if you get to the right person at a company, they will put your name on a list... But you do need some base qualifications other than "I'm a LEET & I LUV PBall"... I beta test software games all the time...

thank you my fiend, ive accually ben here since early 2004, but who cares? i really think they should get rid of year joined, becuase all the idoit kids who have an account from 04 think they have superiority becuase theyve ben here for one year. congratulations kid, you have an account thats a year old. i stopped using my 2004 account becuase i did not like the name enough to drop 12 dollars on a supporting member tag. i also have an early 2005 account that got banned for 14 days so i didnt wanna wait. i honestly dont care what you 12 year olds think i know, what i dont know, and how i play. theres a world outside the computer. i came here looking for companys looking for beta testers, i know they dont just give **** out, im not dumb. but alot of you kids really need to settle down, you think your mods. i cant look through a thread without read "search, or GOD DAMMIT THIS HAS BEN POSTED (X) TIMES! N00B!!!!!!" you guys need to settle down a tad, and get off everyones case. i cant make a thread on this, nor my old account without getting slammed with 12 year olds jumping my ****.

Shut the **** up, stop *****ing, I skimmed through your post, and it is all bull****. Shut the **** up, stop acting like a 4 year old asking to test products and start reading.
