A sincere thank you for verifying what I've known all along:
I really needed a very simple player very quickly, and this is what I found first.
No criticism of you here. It reflects mainly on application developers. There are several better formats for what you're doing, but those supporting them haven't made it easy enough. Often, developers who support choice offer too many choices to be understandable. Perhaps an automatic default for everything, and a side note that more is available, with a "more choices" button.
Your response is appreciated, and so well put that I attempted to take the quiz. Flash (yes, I have it) crashed, probably due to lack of horsepower. It's not your quiz, it happens often. Not my reason for despising flash.
But the thread is yours, and rather than "flash vs. whatever", it's about soliciting quiz-takers for help towards your MA.
1. Anyone who can should
take the quiz. I know I'd want and, in this kind forum, expect fairly good participation.
2. Speaking of that kindness, you might consider changing the thread's title to one that directly asks for help. Your title for the
first quiz was good, just change it to tell how
to help, such as: Please take quiz (#2) to help with my MA thesis. May
get even more attention.
3. Reflects 1. Anyone
. The quiz asks whether English is one's first language, so I assume that those who first learned
another tongue are welcome and useful.
4. This one can't be fixed now without skewing your results, not to mention that it's quite late to do so. Despite your statement
that punctuation is not to be considered, it's impossible not to do so, at least for native speakers. We grew up "hearing"
punctuation. I found it interesting to compare the quiz's punctuation with that on Tropic of Vector. There are some supposed
punctuation errors on Tropic, but it "sounds" much better and more natural than the quiz.
Best of luck, wish I could help more.
