In the recent survey, did or would anyone vote for a Flash magazine?
How come no one knows about Wizards, random web surveys?
Lastly I check these forums regularly and I have not seen any random polls either. They must only post them say, randomly on pages I don't go to.
Refresh the D&D Web site a couple of times. It'll pop-up. Although doing so removes the randomness of the survey and instead gathers the opinions of the vocal minority.
Rant: A current trend that really annoys me is using flash rather than HTML+CSS for layout.
Right click open link in new tab. Huh, why did I get a flash menu instead? Oh, because you're not a web page, you're flash embedded in a web page and masquerading as one!
Flash has its place, but it's not supposed to replace HTML. If you're rendering something relatively static, use HTML. Only use flash if you actually want something animated. Otherwise you just annoy power users.
If it could sensibly be done in HTML or PDF, it should not be done in flash. Flash is heavyweight and just puts another layer between the user and the data.
I think that they are looking at flash for the ability to view information easily but that can be done with HTML though not as well usualy.
I would like to see PDF files and also an add on Flash or other database program that would let you browse all the class information or weapons or armor etc. from your e-books for example. If I want to read the full book I can and if I just want the hard data in a format that lets me retrive data fast I would have that too.
Wizards, shave and a haircut
