What is Beta test

Beta test is a initial test period to see client and server processing capability especially for server side mass processing capability. We want to test ChainOfAsker around 1000 Beta tester to see overall server side performance. During this period ChainOfAsker site will be operated as following.

  • When user count reach around 1000, then ChainOfAsker will stop to accept new user during Beta test period(1 to 2 month) . Sorry this is a required step to confirm server processing capability.
  • Beta tester can add new user as an helper and if new user is designated as an helper, he/she can log in ChainOfAsker and can start to use ChainOfAsker. This is a measure to provide project management functionality to beta tester.
When there are no major issue, We will quit beta test and start to accept new user.

thank you
