Looking for travel guide testers

Posted by somtam2000 on 17/7/2006 at 19:10 admin

We're putting together some new pdf miniguides at the moment and we're looking for a few people to give them a look over and let us know what they think. We'd send you a questionaire along with the guide which we'd like you to fill out with your feedback.

If you're interested, please post into this thread and we'll be in touch.

Thanks!

Posted from within Vietnam.

Thanks everyone, we're still working on them and they're a bit delayed now that I'm in the Mekong Delta -- hopefully we should have something ready in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks again

A long time waiting, but finally I've just uploaded a sample of the new eFish -- if you've already signed up for a look, when you login you'll see a new section just under the 5% Travel Insurance discount link in the Member Centre.

If for somereason there's nothing new, let me know and I'll check I've opted you into the BETA programme.

There's two documents there for you to take a squizz at - the new eFish (it is for Siem Reap) and a short questionnaire which we's really appreciate you taking the time to answer...

If anyone else wants to participate, please just say so in this thread and I'll opt you in.

Many thanks again!

Thanks Marian for your feedback

If anyone else has some feedback on the guide it would be much appreciated -- we're not looking for you to actually roadtest it (though you're welcome to of course!), but rather general comments on the look and feel of the document.

Thanks again

I am shortly spending five months travelling Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam with my husband. Last year, we spent three months in China and Vietnam.

I worked as journalist, editor and sub-editor for more than 10 years and am now combining a few 'older gap years' with writing. I'd be happy to look over and feedback on any guides you are producing.

Keep up the good work - it's a fab site!

The beta testing is closed now - thanks to all those who got back to us with feedback.

Cheers
