comment Does selenium work with video?
One of the hallmarks of a good question is that it shows individual research effort on the part of the asker. I think this is certainly a valid question, but it doesn't provide all that much to go one. Perhaps consider expanding it with more detail about the video you're trying to validate, and exactly what your objective is.

comment Performance testing resources
While this may certainly be expert level, I think this is lacking either detail or research. I don't consider this to be harmful to the community, but this site is quite different than an information repository. Instead, it is a Question-and-Answer site. The questions are typically actual problems you're facing in a professional environment. Now, it could be that no one on your team knows performance testing and you want to learn about it. In that case I'd give more detail about what you're testing. That's one possible example of how this could be improved. Try to match it up to your real job.

comment What are good metrics for a test team to use to start measuring their workload and ability to meet external deadlines?
@TristaanOgre Your comment implies opinion is not welcome. I personally don't see any problem with the title, except perhaps for its length.

comment Are state transition diagrams a good software testing technique
I agree with @testerab. I think asked on their own, they both are decent questions (both of which, however, I would like to see expanded upon!) But they're also very related, so much so that staying in the same post is still viable. I think if they weren't so tightly coupled we should break it out into two questions.

comment How can I select a file to put into a file_field without using the absolute path with Watir / Ruby?
There are more Watir people monitoring SO at the moment, but seeing as how Selenium was merged into SQA, it only makes sense that Watir questions should also be here. There is overlap, for sure. In fact, EVERY question on SQA could be on SO or Programmers instead - the idea is to bring them together to bring the philosophy of testing from Programmers to the technical aspects from SO under one roof. They're called growing pains for a reason :-)

comment How do you prepare yourself for a testing position?
@tester - hmm I'll consider it. Although I've got a new project for my weekends: tinyurl.com/glowcoder1 :-D

comment When is it OK not to have dedicated testers/QA team?
@Joe you're absolutely right. Most developers I know do a lot of testing just because they don't (mostly can't, due to legacy limitations) design and code for testability! If we had set it up for testability, we wouldn't need to do near as much testing, because the required testing would be greatly reduced.

@testerab That's a gem! I'd love to see it myself!

comment How do you tell a programmer they're not testing their own code enough?
@Tristaan That's actually the same approach my company takes with developers! The analysts make the specs, and they really don't like it when we tell them how it could be improved, as if their 20 years working in manufacturing has enlightened them to database design any more than all my years of eating food makes me qualified to be a chef.
