Testing Zone - how to test & guidelines

Post your pattern tester calls, and offer to be a tester, right here on our #testing !

We have developed unique safe testing tools to empower both designers and testers, keeping testing safe, fair, and fun!

Guidelines for testing patterns on Ribblr

  1. Testers must be able to apply via your tester call post
    You may provide several ways to apply for testing, but you must also accept submissions via your tester call post on the community. The testing does not have to take place on Ribblr, although for the safety of your design we highly recommend it. (Learn more about our safe testing tools.)

  2. Designers may set a testing criteria
    Designers may set a testing criteria such as a testing deadline, asking testers to add journal notes or share a finished make photo on a social media platform, and more. This information must be disclosed on the tester call post.
    Designers may also determine how many testers they require, when they’ll pick them, and when to open/close their tester call.

  3. Do not apply to test if you do not meet the criteria
    Please do not apply to test if you do not meet the criteria set by the designer.
    If you aren’t sure, please ask the designer. For example - if you think you might not be able to finish before the set deadline then ask the designer if that’s okay.

  4. Communication is key
    Both designers and testers are always expected to keep an active line of communications with each other in order to provide feedback, as well as ask and answer questions. Please be patient and allow the other party reasonable time to reply.

  5. Be respectful, kind, and supportive
    Both designers and testers must stay respectful, kind, and supportive of each other and follow Ribblr’s terms & conditions. Aggressive, violent or otherwise disrespectful behavior of any kind is not allowed and will not be tolerated.

:star: If you feel that someone isn’t following these guidelines please avoid contact with them and reach directly to us.

Designers - testing is easy as 1, 2, 3

Before you post your first tester call please take the time to learn more about our safe testing tools.
Please make sure you always follow the guidelines above.

The testing icon on your shop (displayed on top of your pattern’s image)
We highly recommend using it to post the tester call. This way it’ll include your pattern’s name and image. We also recommend using it to launch a group message with all your assigned testers.

Crafters - apply and get testing!

As soon as you are accepted and assigned a tester by the designer, the pattern will appear in your patterns library under the ‘testing’ tab.
Click ‘test it!’ and get started.
Please note - you might see just parts of the pattern, as the designer have the ability to release the pattern in parts.
Please make sure you always follow the guidelines above.

Hi @Elitott and welcome to Ribblr! You’ll love it here :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
In regards to testing patterns, all you need to do to apply is comment to a testing thread, and the designer will either choose you or someone else. Typically multiple people are chosen. Different designers also have different rules for applying for testing, so make sure you read the whole topic (and the comments too) to see what you need to do.
Hope this helps, have a lovely day!

Hi, I would love to help test crochet patterns! I love doing amigurumi and I have also been trying my hands at some more intricate stitchwork. I consider myself to be an intermediate (I started during lockdown and got hooked :drum: and now I crochet basically all the time).

I do recognize that I probably need to use the journal feature more though.
