Firstly we would like to welcome all new testers to the Home Beta and we hope you'll enjoy your time over the coming months and years in Home as it develops, matures and expands. It is important to understand that we are now at the start of a long journey, not the end of one. Theres so much more to come and what you have now is just the base upon which we will build our service.
If you missed it in the patch notes post we are inviting a large number of people today, Friday the 21st and another even larger batch next Thursday the 27th.
We should also clarify your role as a new tester and it is important to say that we need you here to help us load test the service rather than report bugs initially. Our long term testers are reporting issues directly to us and we will publish a summarised list of the things they find. After a few weeks we will start collecting bug and error reports from all testers here in the English forum but the list of things the long term testers have reported will help avoid confusion and duplication of reports to a degree.
In the meantime, once your invite arrives, familiarise yourself with Home, take a look around and meet the locals
Thanks for the update Ted, Greeat to have some solid dates now. Only hope am part of one of them
