    If someone else does not like or disagree with this (relatively) new A/B testing system that Microsoft is going to implement with the insiders, please upvote this comment in the Feedback hub: https://aka.ms/L9f2r1

    Nobody is forcing you to use it. Point is that it should be open to those who want to test it. I have seen invite only "reviewers" in all sorts of walks of life, and the one common theme is they always seem to select people who they think will not "rock the boat".
    That was not at all what I was suggesting. But we can give feedback on features that we don't use nor understand. Which is pointless. Inking was just an example...Windows has thousands of small features integrated that makes life easier and hundreds more are on the way...

    Of course a development team would select reviewers that are skilled in the topic under test/development, can make a good arguments with technically detailed examples, and is not absolute in how things should look and work. With a small group it is much easier to make conversations that will produce the outcome of the project under development that all parties desire in the end.

    I am not going to upvote against that A/B testing system.

    As a developer I can say MS decision is a really good one. Some features need more laser sharp focus than others. If the developers has a small selected group of insiders testing a new feature, they could more easily make more close communication regarding pros and cons, works and does not works etc...

    No point in having the whole world giving their opinion on something, when the developer would get overwhelmed by the feedback and the relevant information would get lost in the masses.

    Example: Why on earth would I want to get all the new and incredible Pen and Inking features, when I don't even own a PC with touch screen nor a touch pen? Why would MS ask for or need my opinion for those tools, when I don't have anything of real value to contribute.

    Filtering out the feedback trolls is a great thing.
    Agree 100%......let those who feel M$ are depriving them of their "FIX" have their say.

    I think you’re making some good points, Slice. I have a hunch they’ll be looking for active Insiders. For instance, who fills out their quests in the Hub? If so, what medal do we have? How about feedback count? How many times do we even open the Feedback Hub app? I think these are the things they will be looking at to pick those to test. They may also be looking at our telemetry to see what apps we use and activity we have.

    Another good point you made is if someone can test the feature at all, both with hardware and software. With the Sets feature it looks like we’ll need to have O365, use Edge (which everyone should have), OneDrive, perhaps OneNote, and perhaps be proficient at using them all.

    LOL. I feel like I’ve been through the practice session and now hoping to make the cut for the team.
