What is a design analysis ?

A design analysis is an evaluation of the design of your board according to specific criteria, which aim to show its strong and weak points.

How to do an analysis request ?

First of all, you create your topic.
For the title, you must use a short title, so that there will be rooms for the request date under the (mm/dd/yy) and a tag. Please put the request date, so we can process older requests first.

Tags will be used to indicate the progress of the analysis request. Here are the tags which will be used :

[Waiting] : Request which haven't been taken in charge by an ID Analyst yet
[In progress] : Request which have been taken in charge by an ID Analyst
[Finished] : Request where the analysis has been delivered by an ID Analyst
[Cancelled] : Request which is not up to date anymore

Par exemple :

[Waiting] Ishimaru-Design (20/01/07)
[In progress] Ishimaru-Design (20/01/07)
[Finished] Ishimaru-Design (20/01/07)
[Cancelled] Ishimaru-Design (20/01/07)

In the message content, please show us a minimum of politeness by including politeness phrases (Hello, Thanks, etc.). Otherwise, the analysis won't be done !

Because the requesters don't always want the same things, please use this form :

[b]Link of your board (very important)[/b] :
[b]You desire to have advices from the analysts[/b] : yes/no
[b]You want an evaluation according to a scale[/b] : yes/no
[b]You want to be added to the placings[/b] : oui/non

To help the analysts in the design evaluation, we recommend you to create a test account on your board and that you give the account's IDs to allow the analyst to log-in to see the buttons the guests can't see. To avoid that everyone sees the IDs, put them between the hide tags, so that only the moderators of the section can see them.

Here's the hide code :
[hide]test account logins[/hide]

Once the request posted, be patient. The requests must be processed from the oldest to the newest requests. So, you will have to wait that the requests which are older than yours are done before it will be your turn.

According to the analysts' availability, the limit in the number of active analyses (waiting or in progress) will be fixed to 3 requests.

Once the analysis has been delivered, your topic will be moved in the "Finished analyses" section

Can I request for a new analysis ?

yes, you can do a new request, but only 2 weeks after the analysis' delivery. For this, send a PM to one of the ID Analysts, so he/she will move your topic back to the Analysis requests section.

For analysts

When you take an analysis, you have to deliver it inside a reasonable delay (3 days). If you can't deliver it on time (an unexpected event might occur), please report it in the topic, but please don't do it too often. Try to deliver it as soon as possible, to avoid making the request poster wait too long.

If a member requests for having an evaluation according to a scale, here's an example of scale you can use :

[b]Relation with the forum's theme[/b] : 30%
[b]Coherency of the whole design[/b] (between colors, between buttons, between colors and buttons) 15%
[b]Graphic quality[/b] : 15%
[b]Accessibility and ergonomy[/b] (text legibility, icon sizes, effect on the eyes) : 20%
[b]Customization[/b] : 20%

But you can also use your own scale, now that the fixed scale has been abolished

How to become Analyst ?

First of all, you have to apply in the "Recrutement/Recruitment" section.

Then, we will submit you to an test, so we can evaluate you. If the analysis satisfies us, you will be accepted in the team and you will have the rank "ID Analyst" and the moderation rights in the analysis lab section.

Notice : One part of the credits are given to ForumPubActif from which the rules as they are, are inspired. Before I published these rules, I had them read and approved by Gandalf, one of the ForumPubActif administrators, to avoid any legality problem.

I am currently having a bad patch, so I won't be very present for a while
J'ai présentement un passage à vide, donc je ne serai pas très présente pendant quelques temps

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...
