The Nest during the holiday season

by | Dec 19, 2014 | Crowdtesting | 0 comments

Testbirds love Christmas. Especially here in Munich, with all those beautiful christmas markets in the city and winter festival Tollwood just around the corner. And the season fun continues in the office, where we have a lovely advent calendar, made by two very special secret santas. So everyday at noon, the hall is decked with Testbirds eagerly waiting to open their presents. Only a few more left. But even though it is the season to be jolly, it does impact some things concerning community support.

Reduced community support

For you Birds out there, it might be good to know that community support during the holidays will be reduced to a minimum. Most Testbirds fly home to spend Christmas and New Year’s with their families and loved ones. This means it will take a little longer than usual to receive a reply to questions that you might ask. Concerning the payments: most of these will be handled before Christmas, but those that remain open during the holidays will be processed in January. Our crowd support will be running in full effect again, starting January 7th. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope you understand.

And a Testbird in a pear tree…

Lastly, I want to leave you with this. Did you know, that there’s a beautiful Christmas song about birds? Check out the lyrics and a wonderful rendition below. And it just happens to be that in 12 days an amazing new year will start, filled with a lot of happy testing. (A little bird told me.)

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me
twelve drummers drumming,
eleven pipers piping,
ten lords-a-leaping,
nine ladies dancing,
eight maids-a-milking,
seven swans-a-swimming,
six geese-a-laying,
five golden rings,
four calling birds,
three French hens,
two turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear tree.

Merry Christmas and a very joyful 2015, from all of us at Testbirds!
