I noticed over at Counter-Strike:_Source_Singleplayer that while it's a real struggle getting team members for mod production, there appears to be no shortage of people eager to volunteer to test new mods. Perhaps everyone already has people they can easily call on to test whatever they are working on, but you can never have too many testers (especially in a single-player context, where fresh eyes are invaluable), so this kind of list seemed like it would be a great resource for VDC users.

The success of this resource obviously depends on getting people to sign up though. Perhaps the phrase "build it and they will come" will prove true, or perhaps someone with a Steampowered Forums account should go over there and advertise it, or something?

Also, do we have an article on good playtesting practice yet? There's lots of really excellent material on the subject in Valve's GDC talks, if someone feels like writing it up and linking it in here and elsewhere. --Giles 05:35, 10 May 2006 (PDT)
