We need help doing user experience testing! This means users testing our software, observing what does and doesn't work for them, and recording that.
If you're here to help (HOORAY!) go to the testing instance set up by Caleb Davis: http://omgmg.dyndns.org:6543/
Sign up for an account, add soem pictures and play around. Take some notes and then either set up an account on this wiki and add your thoughts to this page or email them to email@example.com
Note that NOTHING ON THIS INSTANCE IS PERMANENT. This is for user experience testing only... your pics will be wiped!

Please let me know if you have any other experiences with testing, I intend on regularly updating that document and release the full version freely licensed once it’s done as well as some kind of a quick start guide.
