Hi Dean, I would think that would belong more up in the body of the questionnaire than down in the tail with the demographics. Maybe we could get Dan or Isaac to add a "(n)A. The three strongest points of evolt are: * Blink * Blank * Drinking * Other ... [Text area] (n)B. The three weakest points of evolt are: * blenk * blunk * a dearth of information on 'design' related topics * Other ... [Text area]" My 2c on evolt and design ... I think we've had *some* design related threads and I think we have/had some serious design oriented folks on the list ... but I just did a quick search through 325 unread thelist messages and didn't see any of their names [except Aardvark] jump out at me ... so maybe they're not here anymore. Personally, I think the rap is deserved. Whenever anyone asks for a site critique we seem to get a lot of responses pointing out cross-browser problems with the CSS and/or JS. We might see a couple saying "the prints too small" or "the colors hurt my eyes". But that's about as close as I see to "design critiques". Once in a blue moon I do see an "excellent choice of colors - I can smell the coffee your site is selling" or an "it doesn't feel 'angry' enough - try a darker shade of brown to add an 'edgier' tone that your client might like"... but they seem to be very very few and far between. When we DO discuss a 'design' issue like font size - it seems more likely to desolve into a debate over whether 'ems' are supported or not supported in a given alpha browser release rather than a 'design' issue like whether bottom line disclaimers should be half or a third of the normal font size. RonL. (I used to do competitive photography. I've gone to listen to the critiques on "art" competition night where the judges were museum curators and art gallery owners. It was 'eye-opening' for me. I have to say I've pretty much *never* heard anything like those kinds of critiques around here.) -----Original Message----- From: Dean Mah [mailto:dmah at shaw.ca] That's fine too but I'd like the wording to specifically ask about topics of interest so that we know which threads to instigate or which articles we need to write so that the community gets more involved. And hopefully we can draw more members that way. For example, I've heard numerous times now that thelist isn't design oriented and that members would never recommend the list for design questions. Is that the same 5 people talking or does everyone agree? Could we get more referrals by writing more design articles/threads? Are these people willing to write/start them?
