TS5 Homebase Community Test | Exclusive Badge

Hey everyone,

The Homebase release is around the corner, so we would like to invite you all to join us for a stress test on 2022-09-20T17:00:00Z .

While the team is hard at work in the background to ensure that Homebase will work as smoothly as possible once you all get to go hands-on with it, @Five_Alive would like to take the time and have a stress test with everyone that’s interested in joining us. Since we know how much you all love badges, we’ve decided to include a small but fancy reward for everyone that partakes…

:thinking: What does this mean? :thinking:

During the Homebase Stress Test, you will be led by TeamSpeak Staff to perform specific actions in your TeamSpeak Client, which will help us collect important data/Information regarding Homebase and how the client performs during a Homebase move.

:information_source: What is Homebase? :information_source:

TeamSpeak 5 Servers will give you the option to host your very own Homebase. Homebase is the Server where your chat account is created in. Nonetheless, you can still chat with other users that are located on other Homebases via federation.

Similar to a traditional TeamSpeak Voice Server, if you decide to host your own dedicated Homebase, this gives you complete control over not only your voice server but also your chats, and rooms which now gives you more and new ways to effectively manage your decentralized server, it’s security and privacy and how your community or team functions overall.

In the future, TeamSpeak Users will be able to connect to your TeamSpeak 5 Server and decide whether or not they want to join your Homebase and simultaneously host essentially all of their data at your Homebase.

:medal_sports: Exclusive Badge :medal_sports:

As mentioned above, there will be an Exclusive myTeamSpeak Badge for everyone that participates and fills out the form at the end of the stress test. Here’s a sneak preview:

Tutorial & Very Important Information

This is a step-by-step tutorial on what exact actions will be performed during the stress test. It is very important to follow the instructions given by TeamSpeak Staff to ensure the test goes according to our plan.

Preparation:

  1. Create a new myTeamSpeak Account.
  2. Download/Login to TeamSpeak 5 with your new Account.
  3. Redeem the badge code MULTIPASS. This will unlock your global chat features.
  4. Setup Chat and choose ‘myTeamSpeak’ as your Homebase.
  5. Connect to ‘beta.voice.teamspeak.com
  6. Join the Stress Test Channel and wait for further instructions by TS-Staff

:warning: Please note: We highly recommend that you use a new myTeamSpeak account and not your main/day-to-day account. This process is not yet fully tested, so data loss and/or your account could be at risk.

Homebase Move:

  1. Right-click the server name and select ‘Make Homebase’.
  2. Press ‘Select’
  3. Press ‘I’m Sure’
  4. After you’ve done that, please wait for further instructions by TS-Staff.

Things We’ll Be Testing

In order for this to be tested properly, we will need to keep a note of our UUID & create a history before we move Homebase. This means we will need to:

  1. Keep a note of your UUID
  2. Add each other as a contact
  3. Send a text based message to each other
  4. Send an image to each other
  5. Send a GIF to each other
  6. Once we have generated a history, then we will all perform the Homebase move

Please note: With the text based message, image & GIF, we would recommend using the same one for each contact you reach out to. This will make it a lot easier for each individual to pinpoint when something is out of place or potentially missing. Keep these polite please :slight_smile:

After this:

  1. We will have a quick group discussion to see if any immediate concerns/issues have been spotted
  2. We’ll check our UUID’s to see if this has remained the same or not
  3. You will be directed by TS-Staff to fill out a form with your findings and also to add some details so we can apply your tester badge to your “main” account (We wouldn’t want to apply your new badge to your tester account unless you really want the badge here).

Closing Words

We hope to see you at the test a week today and thank you in advance for helping us to test this feature out. The data we will acquire from this will be really helpful and will help us to identity any concerns that may exist.

It’s already mentioned above, however it is extremely important that you don’t use your normal account during this test. If something doesn’t go to plan during this test, we might not be able to fix your account which is why we highly recommend you use a new account for this.

This is intended, as you cannot set the chat server everywhere else than myteamspeak right now (but next week you can set the Homebase to the beta server)

A post was split to a new topic: Lost my account

Be ensure you user the right account and identity.
(If your synchronization was not activated, you can restore it if you have a backup from your identity.)
You could losed your identity, but not your account.
(But for the test use a new account :smiley: )

Ready 🫡

Btw.
" 1. Keep a note of (but don’t share) your UUID"’
Why “but don´t share”, Everybody can see the UUID?
Or do you mean a different ID?

I’ll rephrase this above. Basically, keep a note of your UUID before the transfer, then check this after the move. It shouldn’t change, but its a “just in case” check.

Sounds great!
Just because im interested: does ts5 support plugins, will there be a plugin sdk? Does it remain to be C? :slight_smile:

Currently ts5 is installed and my main account is logged in. If I open a new account and log in with that account, it’s okay, right?

So the only thing I am wondering is that I will be at work at the time, so voice is a no go for me. Would the the instructions be given in text chat?
