Beta testers


#1

Jon

I suggest that you need a few beta testers (outside the MT) here to liven things up…

Yes, I was coming to the same conclusion! If we bring in some now then they would need to be very sympathetic, constructive and happy to contend with incomplete functionality.


#3

Sorry Jon, been up to my eyes with work and other things at the moment. I agree, a few more Beta testers would help this along…

Thanks for the invite; I’m now aboard.

Initial impressions are very favourable. I like the idea of spots and alerts on one page. I’ve set the page up to be monitored by WebMon, so I’m glad that spots don’t turn red and trigger a “change” when, in reality, nothing has changed.

Living so far from the epicentre of SOTA, I’m a 99.9999% HF chaser. It would be the “icing on the cake” to be able to filter out all those irrelevant (to me) VHF spots. Perhaps that’s asking for the moon?

I think Jon has heard that request before so I’m hopeful!

Au revoir


#6

One downside is that webmon will alert you when someone posts a message (or adds an alert) too - and I guess that’s not what you want.


#7

Actually I don’t think that will be a major problem. Time will tell. I haven’t delved into the really clever bits of WebMon yet, so it may have the ability to discriminate on a more selective basis.


#8

Just using this as a test for what I have set on webmon


#9

Test seems to have worked. Webmon now only alerts when ther is a posting
of any sort.
