How do I test the platform?
Below are some instructions and guidelines of how to test the platform optimally. You can stick to these instructions or you can find your own way on the platform.

- If you know a certain product you can create content around it, for example a description, image or a video**. Create an account and become a creator.
- Try to enrich your profile with information such as a profile picture and some information about yourself.
- Choose a number of products that you know and/or that you would like to create content for. For inspiration you can search the internet for images or texts about this product and so on.
- Click on “create content” to open the content editor and start creating.
- Publish your content.
- On the manage content page you can check the content you created. It always starts with the status “pending” because the content needs to be curated.

*What is a bug?
It is important to understand what constitutes a bug before entering the Bug Contest. Its team has been busy with testing the platform on several servers with different functionalities to find bugs that get in the way of using the platform properly. Bugs such as password errors, “page not found”- notifications and a not working verification mail are all examples of bugs that should not be there.
Obviously there should be as few bugs as possible to create the best user experience for creators and content users. Because the team is deeply involved in the process, it is very likely that bugs will be overlooked. That is where community members come to play. With the fresh look of community members YOUR is able to keep growing.
