Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
There is an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) for the trial program specifying not to discuss features before the public launch which is perfectly understandable.
Has anyone else received such an invitation?
What wonderful ideas have they up their sleeves that they want to test on my sites?
Xmas present, New Year card and now this, what next, an all expenses paid trip to the plex?
It sounds interesting however I'm not too sure if I want any of those floaty things going across my screen, they drive me barmy!
It should be interesting, I wonder how many others have received this invitation? It would be very strange if there were only to be a couple of us at WebmasterWorld.

I was thinking the opposite:
Putting these guesstimates together suggests it is very likely that "a couple of WW contributors" is at the upper end of invite numbers. My guesstimates could be wrong, of course, but it still suggests we are only talking about a 'handful' at most.
Apologies, I was away til late last night on "real" business:-)
How many contributors are there to WW Adsense forum - a couple of hundred?
That's an interesting question. I've no idea however I'd venture to bet that there are 5-10 times as many lurkers.
How many members of the beta council will there be - a couple of hundred?
Assuming my 50,000 is correct then I would have thought that to get a reasonable sample one would need at least 5%, 0.4% would be too open to wide fluctuations and discrepancies surely?
endomorph1 and I reckon that his and my very successful implementation of Adlinks on regular pages and forums may possibly be an influencing factor, but who really knows?
Were we purely chosen at random?
Yay, I've won a prize, pass go and collect £200:-)
The beta council requires an NDA so you cannot talk (or post!) about any of the new things they are testing out.
Yep, I realised that when I posted which was why I carefully worded my original post:-)
I have no problem with an NDA, it's very common practice within my own industry and not many within the trade even know about such a stipulation.
I assume the beta council has been running for quite some time then?
