So… You want to be a BetterTester…
Welcome to our new cruelty-free BetterTester program! With our new branding, we have smooshed our advocate program and our beta tester program into one BetterTester program. If you were previously an advocate you are now a BetterTester, if you were previously a Beta Tester you are now a BetterTester. Thank you, your work is beyond appreciated. If you were neither, welcome and thank you for your interest in giving back to the Wine Community and CodeWeavers. Now you will have early access to the latest updates of CrossOver, have the ability to maintain and create CrossTies and be an integral part of making the next release of CrossOver better than ever. Oh, and did we mention you will be handsomely rewarded?
As a member of our BetterTester program you will have access to the following sections of the website.

How does the BetterTester XP system work?
When you perform certain tasks (forum posts, beta reports, etc.) on the website you will earn XP. The more XP you earn, the more BetterTester Ranks you will unlock. We use XP internally to decide which BetterTesters will be rejected. If you do not earn XP, you will lose your BetterTester status.
You should also be aware that our team of Ninjas are watching. They reserve the right to award and remove XP. If you are exceptional, you could be awarded bonus XP. If you do something to upset the balance of C4, you could find yourself with a Ninja Curse, and lose a rank.
For every 1,000 XP points you earn you level up. Every 10 levels unlocks a new icon. Your level will be depicted by a number on your rank icon.
