I mentioned 'New Newsvine' over in this article. It may have overshadowed everything else I wrote in it.
Here's what I feel confident telling y'all about it:
- It's beautiful.
- It's not like anything else on the internet.
- It is very different from today's Newsvine.
- We need beta testers.
We have a list of people, new and old, that we're planning on inviting to beta, but there's a lot of spots open. If you can think of Viners who use Newsvine a lot and you think would both give good feedback and - especially - participate in ongoing discussions, please nominate them in the discussion under comment #2.
Just to clarify here, Tyler, you mean give good feedback to the developers about the use of the "new" Newsvine, as well as participate in discussions with other beta testers and the devs about how it's working, bugs and issues, what might work better, etc., correct?
Yes. Nominate folks you think will kick all the tires on the system and try things that developers may not have thought of.
Don't nominate yourself, please. [I mean, you can nominate yourself, but it won't help your case.]
2nd Edit, 2/2:
Derails about why someone doesn't deserve beta are not welcome. Post upvotes, just like comments or articles. Not looking for slapfights over worthiness, just suggestions. This isn't a RAV or a guideship.
Feel free to ask questions about the redesign here, but as I mentioned, I won't be making a lot of promises and I'll be writing in really general terms.
