Unofficial Beta Testers

How would you reccommend going about getting beta testers? Most of my friends aren’t IF gamers, and I’ve had them test IF games (and it has been helpful), but many errors continue to come up.

For competions, they want games never “released” online. So where can you go to get beta testers without posting your game online?

Also, as I understand it, you can have a game up on a website somewhere for beta testers to download, as long as you don’t publicize the location and you take reasonable precautions to hide it from casual observation. The emphasis here is on “released”, not “online”, if you get my drift.
