I have been out of the betas scene for awhile, so I was wondering if people have any advice and or websites that will help in me collecting and finding good betas. If something is against the rules just PM it me.

I do like BAs wiki which has been really nice to compare but anything else I would appreciate it.

I have uploaded some stuff but waiting to see if that gets me FTP access. I am crossing my fingers. I got a message thanking me for some service pack builds that they didn't have so I am hoping that will get me in. I have more to offer but I don't want to waste hours and hours uploading duplicates.

So I figured in the mean time I would see what other do and know of that would help me.

P.s. Glad to be apart of a betas group again

Well there is also SoftHistory for older stuff: http://forum.softhistory.org . I run it and one of our aims is to preserve all the Abandonware that is in a format not complete enough for BA. :p

As (a few people) said, Winworld is a pretty decent site. I go there every now and then.

Okay, this is getting way too out of hand. This is boiling over into a general OSBA vs. BA wank-fest, and it just needs to stop. There are problems with both forums (speaking as someone who was an admin on OSBA and is a moderator on BA), and us going at each other like children is not the answer.

EDIT:

Topic unlocked, all the feuding BA vs. OSBA non-sense cleaned up and filed away where it belongs. Any further disputes over those two forums will be met with warnings or bans. This applies to everyone (even staff members), and believe you me, I'll find a way to get that directive fulfilled. Watch yourselves. No warnings will be handed out, but I do advise everyone to cool it.

In addition, keep your biased opinions to yourself. The OP didn't ask for your personal reason why you prefer site X or Y, but rather just plain unbiased suggestions on alternative sites. Keep it at that. In the end all these communities (BA and OSBA included) strive towards the same goal, focus on that goal and not some stupid road bumps along the way.
