I don't see the merit in Blyaunte's article, in all honesty. Where's the revelation, i.e. promoting something we don't already know? I don't see it as beautifully articulated, eloquent piece of art either.


Apparently, not everyone has your breadth of revelatory knowledge. I thought it was well written and presented some things in a way that I had never thought of. Just because something did not appeal to you or reveal something to you does not mean it is unmerited. Perhaps you were not a part of the target audience, in which case, you are welcome to continue reading in future issues.

Wow Ham's and Alg's articles this week were really great reading. I am still chuckling over Alg's commentary. Ham, thanks for extrapolating the information about our fanbase here at TIF -- it was very enlightening.

Thanks one and all for your kind words regarding my own article. I merely felt it was a necessary response to this article in clarifying certain points made at that time.

In any event, thanks again everyone.

Ham's article was extremely interesting, and the data shown is very intriguing.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Thank you for giving us the other side of the efficiency debate.

The EP is full of writers and editors, none of us are very efficient. :P

If you're implying that the efficiency of the Tip.it Times Panel is poor, then how do you guys publish your works on time? :sarcastic:

On the topic of the actual articles; I liked the data gathered in the Tip.it survey. When's the next one being conducted?

You want another one? What kind of information do you think that it should collect?

I agree with Skeptic, another article survey like that in a more private fashion would definitely be more of a read to me. I'd feel like a poll dealing with favorite skills, or 99 emotes, there are so many possibilities. Possible ideas would include some of the ones that are just around on these forums, but not found by most.

Finally, I can rest easy knowing I didn't pm a bunch of info to a stranger :P

I think the most telling result is the 10% ish female thing... It not 0, but being out numbered 9 to 1 is still very imbalanced.... If only girls played more video games...

Good to see the results of the survey, I wasn't sure what it was for and actually quite interesting results although not many surprises. Although I have to agree with the author that the one surprise was to see an equal balance between positive and negative outcomes about Jagex. The negatives have previously come out very strongly in the forum posts.

I found Blyaunte's article on understanding efficiency very good. A method of game play that I do not really comprehend and is definitely not for me! However, she explained how it was fun for hobby mathematicians (is there such a thing? :shock: ) and gave me a greater understanding of true efficiency players. It also widened the gap between those who complain about the game being boring and 'grindy' and throw the word 'efficiency' around, those like myself who play erratically in the most enjoyable way for me, and the truly efficient players who take pleasure from their planning and strategic approach.
