I call my test accounts tester and testy.

I use them often to test bugs in a fresh profile. I rename ~/.trinity to ~/.trinity.bak. That forces the creation of a new profile directory. When I am finished with that particular test I delete the newly created ~/.trinity and rename ~/.trinity.bak to ~/.trinity.

Perhaps call your test account username.

We will need to address this issue again for updating screenshots in the help handbooks. Most of the images should retain a similar look. The best way to do that will be for participants to create a testing account and then set the style and theme and colors as needed. I'm not picky about the overall style, or widgets, but colors should be consistent.

Another option is to create themes. One for for regular usage and a second theme for handbook screenshots. Then toggle between the two themes as necessary.

By the way, I understand your exuberance, but I am not motivated to add a snapshot of xmleditor to the new web site. That app is not yet approved or in wide usage yet.
