Looking for beta testers for new EM quiz feature

I've been working on a "Name That Eco Car!" fun quiz for EcoModder.

It's simple: you are shown a picture of some portion of a vehicle, and you choose the answer from a multiple choice list.

I made the test quiz with a short (7) list of commercially produced EV's, so I figured I'd ask for beta-testers in the FFF forum. I'm looking for a handful of people to try it out and let me know if they spot any bugs.

Reply here if you're interested. I'll PM you a link to access the quiz in a little bit.

PS - "test" may be scaring people away. It's not hard!

And it'll probably only take about 1-2 minutes to complete.

Darin, you're scaring them away.

Ben you do it too, slacker!

tasdrouille 04-25-2009 04:52 PM

I'll do it!

SVOboy 04-25-2009 04:56 PM

I did it, and I tell you the format is too narrow! We should make it wider with bigger pictures since the page feels really narrow.

MetroMPG 04-25-2009 05:15 PM

That's not a bug! Currently not accepting design critiques. :P

tas: PM'd

vinny1989 04-25-2009 05:34 PM

Ill give it a go..

MetroMPG 04-25-2009 05:40 PM

vinny: PM'd

McTimson 04-25-2009 06:14 PM

I'll try it out as well

MetroMPG 04-25-2009 06:18 PM

Thanks - PM sent.

The quiz worked great. I got all 7 right mostly by chance, I only definitely knew the EV1, City-El and the Mini. The Mini was the most obvious, because it showed more of the car than the others. It was definitely informative, I didn't know that the other EV's even existed.

I do agree with SVOboy, the pictures could be bigger. Other than that though, it looks pretty good.

I dont know how I'll do but I'll try it.

I lowered the average score from 93 to 90 percent. In three of the photos, you can see the logos

UfoTofU 04-25-2009 09:42 PM

My friend Anna tested it. She lowered it 7 percentage points

robbiewt 04-25-2009 09:53 PM

I guess I'll take a stab at it too.

MetroMPG 04-25-2009 10:24 PM

brihoo & robbie - PM's sent.

Thanks for the feedback so far, everyone. (Yes, you too, Ben.)

SVOboy 04-25-2009 10:34 PM


vinny1989 04-26-2009 08:53 AM

I got 57%.. Guessed most of them.

MetroMPG 04-26-2009 09:29 AM

Thanks to everyone for trying this out. Other than aesthetic comments, it seems like we're good to go.

tasdrouille 04-26-2009 10:47 AM

It worked as it should for me.

metroschultz 04-26-2009 12:56 PM

Oh Man!!
Late again.
If you are so inclined I would like to try also.
I know very little of the EV world and would like to see how I could do.

Matt Herring 04-26-2009 01:02 PM

I'll take a crack at it

MetroMPG 04-26-2009 02:16 PM

PM'd, Schultz & Matt.

It seems to be working fine, so from this point on, anyone else who wants to try it can wait for the full version, with bigger & more pics.

We'll roll out other versions later, thinking: name that hybrid, etc. More to come!

bennelson 04-26-2009 09:28 PM

Shoot me one.

I'll EV test pilot it.

Heck, I'd test pilot anything EV. :D

roflwaffle 04-26-2009 09:57 PM

I had some trouble w/ question 11 loading, which may have been an issue on my end, but other than that it was fine.

MetroMPG 04-27-2009 12:04 PM

Oh... that's because I was adding more questions at the time. And I was having trouble with the internet. Rusty connection.

It's now fleshed out with 22 questions, stats reset, and ready for EV nuts to demonstrate their knowledge: Name That Eco Car! Choose a quiz -

I think the next quiz will be "Hybrid Edition".
