Can someone explain to me how I go about getting it beta tested?

1. Have a method that will allow your file (FM Zip) to be sent to or retrieved by those doing the testing.
This can be a website with a link to the file, shared files as on ICQ, File transfer such as MIRC.
2. Request testers. Limit it to 3 to 6 unless it is an extremely large FM. In that case one or two more might be useful.
3. Have a way for the group to communicate, Email with all testers addresses available, for example. They need to tell you the problems, and solutions to the "Bugs" they might have found, and pass these to the other testers.
4. Select your group from volunteers, distribute the file, wait for input, keep communications open, pass 'bug' info to all testers, there are NO SECRETS among the group.
The rest of the world KNOWS NOTHINNNGG.

I'll give it a go. I've played Thief(s) since it was new and am trying my hand at my first FM. I've got plenty of time on my hands right now so if you like I'll try and test your mission to destruction :-)
