Patrick: Hello and welcome to Xbox interactive online chat support! My name is Patrick. How may I help you today?
Scott: I have a problem regarding beta testing
Scott: I signed up for Beta Testing July 8th
Scott: I recieved an email with a brand new survey July 31st
Scott: I mistakenly thought it was an email for people who had not yet signed up for Xbox live beta
Scott: I realized on August 7th that it was a new survey for me to take and not what i said it was on line number 3.
Scott: I answered the questions as quickly as possible
Scott: I find out that everyone who got the first survey recieved the second one which i have yet to recieve cause i was late on my answering on August 7th
Scott: I am wondering if I will get the second email with the new survey or if i was to late ?
Patrick: It may well be too late, Scott. The Xbox Live Beta registration is now closed. All Beta candidates will be contacted between August and October.
Scott: no i already registered
Scott: and they sent me an email
Scott: with their new surey
Patrick: Well, then in this case hopefully, you will receive a follow up email to this within the next two months.
Scott: ok thanks,,umm do you know any place else I could talk to someone about this?
Scott: because i would like to clear this up
Patrick: No, I'm afraid not. There's no direct connection to the Beta Test team. In this case, you may just have to wait and see.
(here it is)
Scott: oo ok thanks, by the way is it true that they are taking in 5,00 beta testers at first and then a 1,000 more each week after that
Patrick: That's correct, Scott.
Scott: ok thanks alot
Patrick: You're welcome!
