[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 955

post #9541 of 36995
Ok, an update on the editing the form scenario, I was being an absolute idiot and I can edit the form.

But my question now is, should I make it so users who try and join the club with say 3+ keyboards just give 3 of the switches they use? I don't want to have to make it so the user has to submit a single form for each keyboard as that will deter people with loads of keyboards from joining.

What do you guys think?

Switched from a Das with browns to a Filco Majestouch Tenkeyless with blues. Still getting used to the blues, but I think I'l prefer them over browns in the end.

Not sure if I like the different stabilizers they use though, at least on the spacebar. They feel stiffer, and a tad mushy, although the ones the Das uses are a bit too janky feeling. Not sure which I prefer. Maybe once I use this board a bit the stiffer keys will break in, if they do I think I'll much prefer it to my Das.

The keyboard also feels significantly different from the Razer Blackwidow I tried. The Blackwidow's keys were all much stiffer and less responsive feeling. This is much livelier and feels much nicer to type on. Not sure why, considering they're the same switch.

What's wrong with adding multiple keyboards in the single form? That's what I did.

What do you guys think?

 

That would be fine for the purpose of gathering statistics on switch types but woefully inadequate for anything else. I think anyone with the enthusiasm to own so many keyboards would have the motivation to enter each keyboard and show them all off.

It would make counting the switches properly awkward.

But anyway GOOD NEWS GUYS

With help from Blitz in getting the actual formula working, I've now set up the spreadsheet so I can count the submissions made for the switch types in the form and convert it to graphs. biggrin.gif

OH, didn't realise you were after the switch stats.

It's a late addition, but I think the graphs will be useful as I'll be able to make graphs breaking down what switches are the most popular and which switches are used the most for gaming, typing etc. tongue.gif

Since the combobox defaults to "Cherry MX Blue", wouldn't that submit a load of false stats for those with less than 3 keyboards?

Yes, it should, but I didn't notice it when I was testing it last night, which is odd. Regardless, it's a liability so I'll fix it when I get back along with adding MX Clears and MX Greens at TT's suggestion.

Cheers for spotting that TFL. thumb.gif

Table + formulae are working now, I'll be able to use this table from now on to create pie-charts of how prevalent each key types are and which are the most popular for gaming and typing. biggrin.gif



Here's an example of what we can get when we start collecting more data (I used sample data in this example):
