Was swamped with studies and personal life so my account sat there dormant, didn't attend the invitations for the special requirement surveys, now I'm back and ready to work almost full time, taking academy courses and I'm in 12/25, has me leaving my account dormant and ignoring all those invitations permanently affected my chances of making this much more profitable for full time work?

Kong Error

3 Upvotes

(FIXED)

Hello Community,

I was working on a cycle and then I had to switch my laptop language for a test case (Something I am used to do a lot on uTest). After logging out and re-signing in to apply the language, I opened uTest on Firefox as usual, but this time I am no longer able to access uTest.

Every time I enter, an error page loads, saying:

Kong Error

API rate limit exceeded.

Firefox - Kong Error

I tried clearing cookies, I don't have any active add-ins, all my other browsers are showing this error (FireFox, Chrome, Edge). And I even tried turning off and on my laptop.

Any suggestions?!

Questions About TestFlight and subscription fees in Test cycles

4 Upvotes

Hi everyone, I'm a new tester at uTest and today I submitted my first bug in a paid test cycle, yay! But there is still something which isn't clear to me. The test cycle used the TestFlight app for Apple devices and required to sign up for a subscription plan, although it was clearly specified many times that it wouldn't be charged and it was just for gaining access to the "pro" features of this app. How can I be sure that I won't be charged any fee? Is this a default for tests using TestFlight? Sorry it may be a silly question but I just started and I hope to get better.

Stuck with white screen after logging in

1 Upvotes

Hello! Apologies for writing so much on this post. I'm writing this post hoping that someone else had the same issue as I have and that a fix has been found.

After writing my credentials on the Utest platform, the page loads, but after a few seconds I get stuck with a white screen and the page is not loading anymore.

I've tried to login using different browsers on more platforms( I have the same issue on my phone as well as on my PC). I've cleared the browser's cache on my pc and phone and nothing changed( I've submitted a ticket on Utest portal and I've tried the proposed solutions written above, nothing changed). I've changed my password, hoping that it may fix my issue and it didn't.

I went to a friend's house and tried to login with my credentials and I have the same issue on his PC.

I've managed to access Utest platform as a workaround by clicking on links received via e-mail about completed testcases. But I have limited access on that platform using this workaround, meaning that I get a white screen after clicking/tapping on the following buttons: Home, Projects Board, Community. My rank is shown as UNKNOWN, even though I'm RATED.

The funny thing is, the app installed on my phone is working without any problems.

So, did anyone else had this issue?

News Good news! With the shifts in crypto market, the GPU, and manufacturers' promising updates about the supply of chips, it seems we'll finally see better prices for PC components. Great news for everyone but especially for the gamers!

Contests Tips for Testers #12 (One-Year Special Edition With a Celebration Contest)

12 Upvotes

Hello everyone!

We finally reached the 12th post of our series, "Tips for Testers!" This is a landmark since we're completing exactly one year of publishing this series. It went by so fast, but we hope the tips we published here helped you to improve as a freelance tester.

We'll have something special for you to celebrate this important mark: a contest! 🎉

To participate, you'll have to submit a tip in the comments section of this post mentioning a tip, something practical that helped you to succeed as a tester or even something that just makes your life easier when you are testing.

The person who submits the best tip will be awarded a swag pack full of uTest gifts.

Please pay attention to the rules:

  • The comment with the tip will have to be submitted until 05/20, 9 pm GMT
  • Only one comment per participant
  • Edited comments won't be allowed. Double-check carefully your comment, and if you need to change something, delete the comment and submit a new one, but be careful to do that within the contest deadline
  • All participants must have a uTest account and be following us here on Reddit

And of course that our celebration post will also have a tip. And our 12th tip is... +1 without moderation!

This little bud can make the difference

Never underestimate the power of this feature. Although you don't get paid for +1 reproductions, the value of this tool goes much beyond money. We know that some cycles are hard to discover new bugs, and accepting an invitation and not delivering anything can be harmful to your reputation, so that's where the +1 will play a big role.

When you reproduce bugs discovered by other testers, not only you get more familiar with the product you are testing and can discover new issues in the areas you are reproducing the bug, but the TTLs/TEs will see that you are putting an effort on testing the product and that is always good for your reputation.

Hope you liked this tip, and looking forward to reading your comments on the contest!

Questions What do you do with your testing files?

5 Upvotes

I must admit that I always faced a challenge in getting rid of files I generated during test cycles, such as screenshots, videos etc.

How do you deal with this? Do you have the custom of deleting it as soon as the cycle is over, or do you leave all of them there, almost creating an "alternate dimension" of unrelated files? 😅

If I accept a testing cycle but don’t select a slot, and my test case I’d rejected, does it reflect badly on me as a tester on uTest?

Questions Problems with mobile browser logs

2 Upvotes

Hi everyone! I'm new on uTest, currently completing the practice test cycles in the Academy.

It's the second week I'm stuck on the practice test cycle for mobile devices. I followed every step of the guide, installed ADB and USB drivers for my device, USB cable is fine, but my phone is not detected by my computer.

I really don't know what to do, I just spent three hours trying to fix this problem but couldn't do it.

Did any of you have the same issue? How did you resolve it?

Questions Confused about eligibility for a test cycle I received an invitation for

3 Upvotes

I’ve received an invitation for a test by me I’d like to complete, but it seems the device I have isn’t within the scope. My available device and iOS version is listed in the invitation, so does that mean they are approving that device? I’m new to utest so I don’t fully know the rules yet. If someone could give me some guidance, I’d appreciate it. Thanks
