Calling all WordPress fanboys and fangirls! The team behind the infamous publishing platform needs your help. Aiming for another release as popular as WordPress 2.7, the brains behind the operation recently made a call for moderators and participants to join the testing program. The chosen few will tinker with different features and functions, and the reported findings will be taken into account for the improved usability of future versions.
Moderators: WordPress is looking specifically for moderators who have professional experience conducting usability tests (design agencies, software companies, usability consulting firms, etc.).
Participants: The regular Joe. In some cases WordPress will target specific behavior, like users who upload large video files. In others, they’ll be looking for users with widgets in their sidebar, users with more than one author on their blog, etc.
