How do I get invited to join as a beta tester? Am I doing sth wrong?

Hi, to all the people who are current beta testers here: how long did it take for you to get invited after submitting your application? I have mine pending (I suppose so) for 1,5 months so far and I have honestly no idea how to proceed from there.

I’ve already contacted Beta tester support via e-mail twice. The responses I’ve got were prompt and very friendly, but lacking in concrete answers as to what’s happening with my access to the tests. It looks like the whole situation basically amounts to having to wait for an indefinite time, and I’m really confused.

I mean, I have absolutely no problem with accepting ‘No’ as an answer, as well as with being told that I need to fulfull some specific requirements in order to start. Still, when faced with vagueness regarding stuff like this, I get  like a mental glitch and start wondering whether I’ve made some mistakes.

So, what’s your experience? Is there an esoteric set of rules for admission as a beta tester somewhere I’m not aware of (and if there is, what should I do to get it ;)? It’s not an awfully big deal for me, but I was really excited about this opportunity and it would be awesome to contribute to the platform in this way.

Hi @dagsljos

It took lesser time for me, and I don’t think there is any specific time period that they take to invite you.

This is where you can communicate to them, and I think you have already done it: beta-test@coursera.org.

For now, you can wait and see what happens :)

Regards.

Hey, thanks for responding, @salahny and @Archisha Bhar! So it’s not like I was deemed unfit to be a beta tester, just organisational stuff. Ok, thank you very much for saving me from my paranoid thoughts. ;)
