Your friendly neighborhood moderators have whipped up a FAQ regarding the Bungie Beta Tester Sign-up. Please read the FAQ fully before posting any questions regarding email, sign up, or when and where testing will take place.
Q: How do I validate my email on my account?
A: In your profile page under the "Edit Profile" tab you can enter an email address into the email field. This address can be the same as the one you use for your current account or a different email. After you have saved changes to your profile an automated verification email is sent to the email you listed. Follow the link in the email and your account will be verified to that email.
Q: I can't seem to find the verification email, what happened?
A: There is always the possibility the email was filtered into your spam folder. The verification email will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org so be on the look out for an email from that address. Alternatively double check that you entered your email into your profile correctly. If you ever need another verification email sent just reenter your email into your profile again.
Q: I've checked my spam folder and double checked my email, but still no luck, what gives?
A: Some email providers do not seem to receive the verification email. If you have tried the above but still cannot activate your account try using a different email provider. You can easily setup a free email account at Hotmail, Yahoo or Google.
Q: What if I want to change my email listed at a future date?
A: You can change the email verified on your account at any time though you will be sent a verification email to that new address if you do.
Q: Why should I verify my account in the first place? What are the benefits?
A: In addition to receiving news updates from Bungie there is the possibility you may be asked to do a survey on your game playing habits, playtests and usability testing for Bungie or even test out Bungie's next game. For more information read the dedicated news post on Beta sign-ups.
Q: What if I am a non-US resident? Am I still able to apply?
Remember that while you may be signed up to become an official Bungie Beta tester, it is not a guarantee. You may or may not be selected. Furthermore, no dates for future BETA testing are currently known at this time so do not expect an e-mail right away.
