Great survey, Sean, I can't wait for the results :)

A couple days in the off-topic section and 1 day public and we already have half as many responses as all of last year!

I think we have a lot of frequent readers without forum accounts. Hi to all of you. :)

Sean I'm not sure how the results are stored and in what file type/database type. But is it stored in a user friendly enough way for the results to be updated in real time in to the graphs and stuff? Assuming that it wouldn't take to much time and that you don't devote your entire life to this site?

Yeah, there are the google summary results which are updated in realtime. Unfortunately they also have the feedback question and the usernames so I haven't made the document public.

It's stored in a google spreadsheet. I've already played around a bit writing some code to analyze the results. Once I get that together it will be fast to update and have an online summary sheet full of graphs that gets updated on a regular basis.

What questions are people interested in seeing addressed? Anything to do with the data collected. Ask away.

Might be nice to know how many people (out of everyone and all the diabolos) modify their diabolos or just use them stock.

This is amazing.  Great publicity too.  We can all pitch in ideas to add to this, and this will be BIG.

Is your country represented? Would be good to get some of our Asian readers too. Anyone need help or can offer help translating?



Those are survey responses scaled to 2005 national population, if you're interested. Log transformed colour scale, so the actual differences are even greater than they appear. Otherwise Finland and the Netherlands would blow everything else out of the water!

I've changed my mind about the frequently updated results. Most of the people that are going to take the survey have already done so. We're well over 200 now but it has slowed down considerably. I'm going to analyze the data once and do it right with a full graphical report of the data -- something that wouldn't be easy or necessary to update. Unless we get an influx from another location (Asia?) the results have steadied out and aren't going to change. I'll do it whenever I happen to find the time, but likely well before the end of the year. Hopefully in the next few months.

If there's anything you'd be interested to see included, please let me know.

Hmm...help with translations is certianly possible; we could have, like, an Languages subdivision of D.ca so that we could work on translating the site into various languages.  Then we will REALLY go public...

Started putting together a report based on this data. As a result I've closed the survey for the year. Responses have slowed down to 1 or 2 a day anyways. Thanks for the ~280 responses!

Yes, sorry. I got started analyzing the results and then got sidetracked by the rest of life. I have quite a few graphs already put together so I might just release what I already have, make the data publicly available, and call it a day for now.
