Webcam not required :)
I'm glad you clarified that; it was keeping me from signing up.
Now, if having Facebook or Google+ isn't a requirement, either, I have a chance.

1. 10
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes
5. over a million
6. No (what Annabelle said)
7. No
8. Mozilla Firefox
9. PC
10. 1024x768
11. Yes
12. No
13.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
It depends on whether you are talking about an African or European swallow. The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles per hour*, beating its wings 7-9 times per second (rather than 43). But please note that a 5 ounce bird cannot carry a one pound coconut. *Based upon published species-wide averages of wing length and body mass, initial Strouhal estimates based on those averages and cross-species comparisons, the Lund wind tunnel study of birds flying at a range of speeds, and revised Strouhal numbers based on that study gives an estimate that the average cruising airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles per hour.

14. I googled the answer to the last question. :mrgreen:

The airspeed velocity of a swallow crashing to the ground? Pretty darn fast. :lol:

As a beta test you'll be asked to play around with it, and, more importantly, try to break it so I can fix bugs. All I ask is that you actually take a little time to test things out, report bugs, test again when they're fixed, etc. Real easy stuff. Oh, and I can promise that it's cool...at least I think so :)


If it's trying to break stuff then count me in! I've got a good track record of breaking stuff on Gehn ;-)

1. How many avatars do you have? (Approximation fine): 5 on MOULa, more on other shards
2. Has at least one avatar completed all the ages?: Yes.
3. Have you joined a neighborhood?: Yes.
4. Have you created a neighborhood?: no (hangs head in shame)
5. How many pellet points have you earned? (Approximation fine): Not very many - more on Gehn and Minkata than on MOULa.
6. Do you use Facebook or Google+?: Yes to both - f/b more than Google+
7. Do you have a webcam?: yes, on my new laptop but I'd rather not use it.
8. What web browsers do you use?: Chrome and Firefox
9. PC, Mac, or Linux? PC
10. What resolution do you typically run URU at? I don't know
11. Do you typically run URU in Windowed mode? No - have done occasionally with shards
12. Any experience testing software? Reporting bugs on Gehn and Minkata - I have a talent for falling off things and getting stuck in things.
13. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? I keep bees - I hope the bees are faster than the swallow - look out behind you, bees!
14. Anything else I should know? I'll be away from my computer for five days in September.

I presume that if you know how to create a neighborhood and have an avatar to spare to do so, that would count, right?

And thank you to Annabelle, Tai'lahr, kae, Acorn1 and AlanD for signing up for the beta! Room for a few more to round out the testers I need to test various conditions. :)

And a thank you goes to J'ffrey, Mcbeam and HenryMikel! And also to Rex Havoc who signed up on Facebook.

A quick update: I've had a bit of a setback. The cryptic story is that C supports M using P. F and E only support M using S. P is easy. S is hard. Also, I've never made anything in S before...so now I have to learn. The bad news is that it took me all evening just to get S working using something simple and now I've got to read up on how to recreate what I did in P in S instead. The good news is we're only talking about a couple of days.

If you still want to sign up for the beta, please do. The more the merrier. We're still looking at a mid-September beta test. However, I do need to give a little bad news: not everyone will be chosen. Based on the responses to the questions I've had, a few people will be unable to participate. Most of you will so please don't let this discourage you from applying. On the other hand, the answers given have made me consider an additional feature that would allow more of you to participate. It may add a couple of more days of development time and I'd need to get additional responses to reinforce the idea.

All that being said, I thank you all for your continued interest which helps to motivate me every day!
