[EDIT] Applications are now closed! Thanks to everyone involved. We'll be in touch soon.

Yup, you heard right, we’re currently working on a new (mobile friendly :woo: ) profile page, and we’re looking for some lovely people to help us shape the future direction of the project!

What’s the beta test?
  • This is the very first version of the new profile page which we’re releasing for feedback (Don’t worry, it’s far from finished! More features are in the plans)
  • It’s a closed test – that means only people who’ve applied to be beta testers will be given access
  • We’ve got limited spaces available for the test (due to tech requirements) and we’re looking to get diverse a spread of opinion as possible. When you apply we will ask some qualifying questions about you (like username, age, study level and gender); this will just help us to make the page as useful as possible for everyone.
  • We’ll contact those people who’ve been selected for the beta test with instructions for how to access it and give feedback

When is this happening?
  • We’re collecting applications right now!
  • The test will be taking place at the end of November
  • It’ll be a short one – just a couple of days. So we’ll be asking for feedback from our beta testers within that week

What happens after this?
  • We’ll add your feedback to the market research, focus groups, usability testing and feedback we’ve already received from the community
  • We’ll collate your ideas and suggestions, and make refinements for the next iteration of the profile page. All you feedback will be read and considered, and the key themes that come out will shape the future changes (so please understand if your all your individual ideas haven’t made it through!)
  • We’ll keep refining and making the page better, with a view to releasing something more publicly early 2020

How do I apply?
  • Applications are now closed


If you've got any questions, please give me Hungry Seagull or MonkeyFish a shout in this thread.

Applied for it but have 2 problems:
1. Can't set a Gif as a profile picture on this account (works fine on my other account Imane888) and someone else and many others seem to be having the same problem (maybe cause I got reported once or IDK)
2. For my yellow "FIRST!!" badge it has been staying on 74% and level 4 despite me having answered 53 unanswered threads (it's been like this for a week now...)
3. if you want proof then I can show you

Heya!
I have a feeling you might be looking at the current profile page. At the moment we're just calling for people who'd like to apply to beta test the new one, then we're going to PM those people with the link to see the new page and give us feedback.
That is weird about your First! badge though. Can you take a screenshot with your mouse hovering over it so we can see the number of threads?
Cheers!

Make an AtCS thread about it.

I'm waiting to hear back on one about GIF avatars.

Awesome! Thanks for applying.

If you want to whack this is AtCT, and let us know where you have your information about 53 unanswered threads from, that'd be ace! Then we can see if QA can look into it for you.

Cheers!
