(a bit belated) Pop quiz!
- No fair, i didn't have time to cram for this!;->
I do think (if it hasn't been done already) another useful
thing would be a questionnaire:
What areas do you know the most about/specialize in?
(fighting, cooking, brewing, garb, tea, architecture,
What areas would you *like* to? (see above)
If you haven't started with it, what stopped you? (personal
- time, new interest, disability, etc.; lack of info, lack
of others with same interest, fear of ridicule(*)
(*) You would not believe some of the horrid things I've
heard of people saying to newbies at events, especially
SCA-Garb, maybe because garb's so visible.)
What form of learning do you like best? (formal/informal,
solo/1-to-1/small group/large group? Books, tapes, net,
conversation, peer-to-peer, formal classes taught by
(Save this one for last - a treat for completing the other
stuff. Everyone likes to complain!) ;->
What would you like to improve in the SCA J-community?
(We'll help!) ;->
Just a thought.
BTW a comment on the "test" - those terrify me so i just
skimmed it, but seemed a bit heavy on
names-dates-places-and-ranks type stuff.
Nonetheless, heroic work Ii dono and i guess, if I want
other q's, i better get the lead out and get 'em to you,
shouldn't I? :-)
One more idea: Include this on an existing site?
Especially one with lots of related links info etc.: it
would enrich a site like that immensely.
