Hiya everyone,

GeekStore (http://www.geekstore.co.nz) is soon going to be releasing a brand new site, and we need some people to hop on board to view it early and have a play around, identify any bugs and let us know, as well as any suggestions.

If you want to be in the competition to be selected to test out the site, then keep reading. There will only be a small number of people selected so make a good impression!

To be eligible to be included in the beta testing period you must meet these requirements:


  • You need to be able to have access to the internet between November 30th and December 5th.



  • You must be an individual residing in New Zealand.



  • You must need to be familiar with purchasing goods online and the processes around it



  • You will need to have a good understanding of how websites work and the technical procedures about them.



  • You must be willing to test out the new GeekStore site to the best of your ability.



  • You must be willing to complete an in-depth survey into how you feel about the new site.



  • You must not disclose any information, screenshots or any other material which would disclose the design and contents of the new site before it's launch date.



  • We're only taking on an exclusive group of select individuals, so make a good impression on us and get your application in quick. Submission of applications for the beta testing of the new GeekStore site will close on November 28th.


At the end of the beta testing period we will remove your access to the beta site so that we can work on the recomendations that you advised us in the final questionaire. You will also be rewarded with a GeekStore coupon code of a certain value which reflects the feedback you gave us and the influences that you had on the opinions for the production of the final site.

Want in? Just complete a short online form located here:

Best of luck. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

bump for amazingly great justice!

What we're looking for isn't your 'IT Credentials' we're looking for people who know how to find bugs, give good feedback on UI/UE design, maybe some areas that are lacking.

Please don't enter into this if your not willing to offer at least a few hours testing the entire system(minus the payment gateways)

Cheers, Alistair

Instead of a competition to select a small number of testers who get a geekstore voucher of undefined value as a reward for feedback of an undefined quality level....

Why don't you consider opening up testing to anyone (more test users, more feedback, broader range of testers ie: different browsers and versions etc) and reward the top x users with the most valuable feedback with a voucher of a known stated value (all the same or 1st: $x, 2nd: $y etc)?

Basically your current approach doesn't motivate me to participate in your beta test.

Because we don't want just everyone to be able to access the beta site, only a select few people. It'll be a couple of weeks after beta testing has finished before we'll release it to the public.

c71931f: Probably won't bother "signing up".
Voucher might only be for free shipping (lol)


I can assure you that the voucher will be for more than just free shipping.
