    My group and I have made this little site and the next assessment is we have to get people to beta test it. So I was wondering if any of you guys would be willing to do this for me?

    The idea of it is you rate games and mark your preferences as to what sort of games you like, and it recommends you a new game to try. Since it hasn't really been used yet the recommendations will be very poor so sorry about that lol. It should have all Steam, Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo games that are available on their respective electronic stores.

    The beta testing form is at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1...HNyK5cWnk7jEjJMlrR9OWmvA/viewform?usp=sf_link

    The user manual is at https://github.com/ITC303-Violet/ITC303/blob/master/docs/User manual.docx?raw=true (refer to this if you don't understand how to do an instruction in the beta testing form - it has been kept deliberately vague to see if people can work out where the function is or if that needs to be improved).

    The site is at http://violet.blacklotus.cc

    Thanks in advance!!!!!

    Yeah I can definitely look at Blizzard and Origin - there is a section for extra notes at the end of the form, mention it there so we have a record of it. Thanks!

    Cool, this is something I could actually really use! The only and biggest problem I see so far, though, is that it only takes data from online stores. Many of my favorite games don't have digital releases, and that means I can't give the system that data in its current form.

    EDIT: It's also apparently missing some Steam games, such as the 3 "Tales of" titles, Dead Rising 1, 3, and 4, and any DBZ games... and Rogue Legacy. Actually, I should stop coming back to edit this and just leave it at "it's missing quite a few games."

    Hey, I think that link you posted is incorrect, as I'm finding that I'm able to change the contents of the form but not fill it out.
    EDIT: I used the SEND button to send myself a link to fill out the form.

    @Quantumcat hey didn't you mention something like this before? :P

    Cause I think you did at one point. So you finally done it, nice. I mean not to sound like bad or anything but don't they have survey sites already?

    actually north korea. please send help
    I forgot to mention on the beta testing form that the search function is a little too specific. For example, "half life" will not return anything whereas "half-life" does, when I think they should both show the same results.

    Thanks so much :) It will probably die once the semester finishes at the end of the month but I might continue it if I feel a wave of creativity come over me in the summer haha

    You can use a fake email address and use "password" for the password if you don't want to give away anything. User database is encrypted but it's perfectly fair not to trust it - no one in my group is a professional at this. The follow-up form won't mean much to you if you didn't do the first round, but I'd still love you to test it. Try signing up, signing in, signing out, browsing games, rating them, and getting a recommendation. Let me know if anything seems hard to figure out or just doesn't work (I know loads of games are missing but still happy to find out which ones you tried that don't appear. Won't be resolved for the end of the course but I can address it in future if I continue with it).
