    Hello all!
    I've had it happen a couple of times where I release an update to one of my plugins, only to find a hidden bug due to not testing it enough. I don't always have the time to do that, so I would love it if someone (or even several people) would be willing to test my plugins before they are updated/released. Please reply if you are interested!

    @KrazyRaven Why not release a beta file and get the users to test it?

    Ok, how exactly would I do that? Just upload a file to bukkit and add a beta prefix? Or is there another, better, way to do it?

    @KrazyRaven When you upload a file there is a field between changelog and version numbers.
    That is where you can change it to alpha, beta or release.

    @KrazyRaven Make also sure to tell that it can contain bugs with a link where they can report them.

    You mean tickets? Actually, this should be available for every plugin, because no matter how much you test things, there is always a bug hiding somewhere. E.g. in skyrim, they were not one, but three different roots, to get out of bounds, but the testers wasn't skilled enough, to find them.

    @mcdorli Or comments, I don't mind how the issues are reported.

    Me neither, but it is just nicer to have everything like "Ohh, I need to try this out, this looks cool" and the "the plugin gave me this error" type of things in different place.
