Testers needed for the new website

written by shevek - 2018/12/02 13:07

BeWelcome has an exciting redesign currently in development. We now need more testers to make sure we aren't missing anything due to the large range of browsers used by members.

If you would like to try the new site before anyone else, or to contribute to the development of technical aspects of BeWelcome (also for future developments), please join the [[ testing group]], and introduce yourself. Make sure to follow best practice when identifying & communicating bugs by reading the wiki after you join.

Also, any questions you might have about testing and parts of the new website (also how to access it), might already be answered in the testers group (browse the discussions and wiki), or you simply post them there. Do not reply here, because the tech/redesign team will not be reading or answering here, and they are the people you want to talk to :)

A warm welcome to the new Board of Directors!

written by duesseldorf - 2018/11/22 11:47

BeVolunteer - the registered non-profit association behind BeWelcome - has (like every year) elected a new Board of Directors (BoD).

One member will guarantee the continuity of the former and the new Board:

Two members of former BoDs are in the new board again:

And these four active volunteers are first-time members of the Board:

I wish you all as much joy in working together as the BoD team as I had in my four years on the board!
Keep BeWelcome strong!
