I think I've got the system set up properly and I want volunteers to test the new site before I do the full migration. What will be entailed:
There is only one forum category, and you'll be having random conversations in it so as to test out your own permissions and site features. At any time you can make suggestions on how I can make it better.
One thing you cannot do is advertise the location of the test website. Since its location will only be privately disclosed, it will not be accessible by search engine or by spambots. Not that I think spambots will be getting in with two levels of security (oh ho ho, I dare you to figure out where the second layer lies!) and plenty more that I can configure easily if there are any problems.
I'm hoping for an enthusiastic response to the opportunity to preview all the fancy new things I've been working on.
