Hello.

I'll only give you the information I know how you will be selected to our beta-testing team.

First of all, your behavior is the main key for this. If you behave kindly towards other users and our team, then you do have chance to be selected.

Another team member can add other info is necessary.

- One can not become a beta-tester by asking.
- One needs to show good/helpful behavior on the forum.
- One needs to have knowledge of the game, and some knowledge in modding (what can be done, and what can not.
- One needs to stand out in the crowd on the forum.
- One needs to be noticed by the team (not by asking though)
- And mostly, pure luck.

The yellows are not some random test-team, they are a well chosen team. They earned their status.

Asking to become one in the very first post on the forum, actually gives you less of a chance to become one. (Although we may forget the question)

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

Well, here's my little tip.

Report a lot of bugs, that's the only way to become a beta-tester. Otherwise, we have no idea if you're a good tester.

I could be totally wrong, but I heard that if you donate $1,000,000.00 U.S. Dollars, you stand a better chance of becoming a beta tester !! :lol:

You must begin by reporting bugs in the bug reports forum. Following proper procedure on doing so is quite important as you will see if you do get selected. Include all the details required in the how to report a bug post is a good start, make sure to include details of the bug and how it is affecting the game if necessary.

I pretty much flooded the bug reports forum every couple of days with the bugs I would find from the newest available version of the mod, its a good way to be "noticed" and shows your commitment to the process and gives an idea of your effectiveness as a tester. Both traits are important if you are to stick around as a Yellow member.

Obviously, you must also communicate with the community a measure on how well you can get along with others and respect, and work with them is an essential skill. Having new ideas and some idea of basic functions of the game and the editor so you can suggest a quick fix or something more elaborate can help you "stand out."

not sure on the effectiveness of this idea, of course why would you donate when you could simply buy off the mod from ScuL or Nico. I'm sure they might be interested in your "donation" to the cause :lol:
