With today being the first day in several weeks where not a single new song has been approved, do you think it's time we got a boost in the BETA members?
It seems to me like a lot of the BETA testers who would normally spend X amount of hours per day play testing are now buying the approved songs on RBN and playing the game... as opposed to continuing the review process.
I have absolutely no problem with this, with the BETA testers having a hard-earned rest for all their brilliant work... but with the RBN moving at such a constant rate, surely we're going to end up with more and more 'obscure' songs missing the playtesting cut, creating a much weaker trickle of songs coming to the RBN in the near future?
Obviously it's going to get back on track after the RBN BETA guys get a little bored of the songs and get back to the review process... but in that time wouldn't there be a risk of songs missing the cut due to lack of commitment to something that is just a minor hobby?
We can't have another promotion to get more people involved in the RBN process... because there are several people who will have bought the licences... making it unfair on them for buying the XNA and Creators Club... only for a new batch of BETA testers.
It looks like something that will sort itself out, but with 300+ songs in the review process... that might be too late :/
I guess the obvious thing would be to open it up to Europe... but that isn't down to HMX, but Microsoft itself.
I know I'm overreacting a lot, but surely if there's only about 20 BETA members who are utterly committed to the RBN project... then it's slowly going to become harder and harder for new songs to be approved unless they're REALLY big bands that everyone wants to get their hands on first.
