The LinkLocker beta will begin, hopefully, within a few days. Technically this might better be described as an alpha, but with all things LinkLocker I reserve the right to make up my own names for things.
I want to thank everyone who has volunteered so far to help me work out the kinks. If you're signed up to be a tester, I'll soon be sending you a link at which you can create an account. I expect that this process will begin on Labor Day, or possibly shortly thereafter. Things are progressing more or less on schedule, but one never knows how these things will go.
If you don't receive your invitation link at the same time as other testers, don't be alarmed. I'll be rolling out the invite links on a gradual basis, so I can make sure that the server isn't going to explode in a horrible green fire from the new traffic. New test accounts will slowly be added over time over the course of a couple of months, with the site (hopefully) launching officially this Fall.
If you would like to be a tester and you haven't done so already, please feel free to request a beta invitation.
Let's do this.
