[OLD] Welcome to the League Survey PT

1) How did you find us?
A lot of people in the PBE play it and finally JKortesi81 pushed me over the edge

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Somewhat. Only because I have sim league experience

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
The hardest part was deciding where I should be born and what position to make

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
I used some of the written resources to figure out what attributes did

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Prospect tournament would be good

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Maybe completely separate the SMJHL into a different half of the site (like the bottom half) instead of having them mixed together

1) How did you find us? Reddit post on r/hockey

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer? It's laid out logically enough - lots of navigating to do as a newcomer but most of the difficulty is just unfamiliarity with the platform I feel

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player? Once I got my bearings a bit, not really

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help? Written tutorial was great

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament) A tournament would be cool, anything interactive while we wait would be awesome (that said, only a couple of days wait time at this point so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members: A consolidated list of links to places we'll need to get familiar with after getting started, such as threads like these - easy places to pick up PT.

1) How did you find us?
Reddit r/hockey

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Yep! It's a bit overwhelming at first due to the information, the the actual interface is nice and sleek. 

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
Nope!

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
I wasn't aware of the video, but I did follow the written tutorial. Had to read it over a few times, but it was helpful.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Tournament would be nice! Perhaps another way to earn more TPE that doesn't necessarily require artistic/writing skill.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.

It'd be nice if clickable links looked different than normal text. I overlooked a bunch at first.

1) How did you find us?
r/hockey
2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
No
3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
No
4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
Written guide.
5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Prospect tourney would be nice if the prospect pool was large enough. If you create a player immediately after the draft, it feels like there isn't a whole bunch for one to do while they wait for the next draft. Maybe a skills competition or some goofy roleplayed media event that doesn't involve player stats.
6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Leave all the newer player information and threads at the top of the forum near the "create a player" section. Shoving our information into the SMJHL Player Database makes it hard for new players to look up their information to use as a reference. (SHL Hockey -> Player Central -> Player Database -> SMJHL Player Database -> Prospects) is how deep one has to go to see their freshly created character. Perhaps dedicating a whole board to "prospects" and their threads near the top of the forum will be less intimidating.

1) How did you find us?

Reddit

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?

It's a little intimidating. An "about" section or something similar would be nice. I'm still not quite sure what to expect as far as what happens once I get drafted and games start.

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?

No, that went smoothly

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?

I didn't even know there was a video. The written tutorial was helpful.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)

Yeah, that would certainly be interesting.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.

Like I said, something explaining the day to day once we get drafted and start playing games would be helpful

1) How did you find us?
I found the league from Reddit
2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Easier on desktop then mobile
3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
Not really, the rules we're very well explained in the guide.
4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
I used the written guide.
5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
It's on Sunday i believe, I'm going to try to learn and understand as much as possible
6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.

I think a cool concept would be to take the user through a timeline of making a hypothetical player, show all the decisions that's made and what the first few actions are.
Similar to what there already is but with a example player to follow

First SHL Goal

hours ago

1) How did you find us?

Through the Reddit recruitment drive.

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Ok on mobile. Probably would have been easier on desktop

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
No. Probably the easiest part.

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help? 

I used the written guide.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)

I only just joined so probably need to spend the time trying to understand the game better. For sure a prospects tournament would have been fun if I'd had more time.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members

Maybe more or any videos (if there were any on offer I missed them). The walls of text can be a bit intimidating, especially on mobile.

1) How did you find us?
Found from word on both the VHL and the SBA.

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Eh. Kinda

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
Nope.

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
Yep, and definitely

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Gain my bearings for this place i guess. A Prospect Tourny sounds neat.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Don't have any.

1) How did you find us?
That huge reddit recruitment post

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Not extremely easy but not particularly hard either. I'll get around

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
Slight technical problem of automatic log-out but that was fixed quickly

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
Written yes, and I wouldn't be here without it

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Earn as much TPE and $$$ as possible

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Don't cancel the first article bonus by putting the same bonus on any article relating to the draft (because no newcomer will make his first article not about the draft). Yes I will be salty about that for a long time if nothing is done to fix that.

1) How did you find us?
A bunch of people from PBE and NSFL are also members here and mentioned it.


2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Yes.

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
Nope. Rookie Mentors and the rookie tutorial helped a lot.

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
Written. Yes, it's all laid out well.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft? (Example: Prospect Tournament)
I'm joining really close to the draft but a prospect tournament would've been nice to play in.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Eliminate any old and completely outdated threads that might be cluttering up the site.

nada

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
written, yes indeed


5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Prospect game would be sweet! Another idea I had was combine-like interviews with players


6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Some of the tutorials and such are only relevant to the old site. Confused me at first before I learned of the change.

1) How did you find us?
Affiliates link in NSFL

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
Yeah it's pretty straight forward, but then again I'm in a few leagues like this.

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
Nope, but then again I'm in a few leagues like this.

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
Nah, i"m a sim league vet.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
Probably nothing since it's so close, just get to know people I suppose

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Make everything on this domain, lose links to the old SHL site.

My Friend Mayuu told me about you!

Prospect Tournament would be fun!
6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
Maybe make the tasks easier to find and more simple. I had hard time to understand what to do as a person who doesnt speak english as their first language.

1) How did you find us?

I saw a post on the hockey subreddit. (seems like i joined in 2016 but i don't remember how i found you guys back then).

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?

I think the site is big and requires alot of exploration to do on my own in order to really get the idea of how it works. It's a forum format so it's no big deal for someone like me who's been using these for a while now.

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?

Nope

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?

I used the written material in the ''Create a player'' forum.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)

Train my player.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.

If there's none already then a user interface frontpage before entering the forums (more images, less text) with clickable buttons that shows what the hockey simulation is about. How it looks, How it works, that takes you step by step to player creation, training, the bank and the other website features. Something like that.

1) How did you find us?
I found out about you guys during your latest reddit post on r/hockey.

2) Is the the site easy to navigate as a newcomer?
To be honest its taken some getting use to but I'm starting to get my bearings and its pretty easy now.

3) Did you have any trouble creating your player?
The only thing that I had a problem with was the player update guide because that just made no sense, I just ended up looking at other peoples to see what mine should look like.

4) Did you use the video/written tutorial when creating your player? If yes, did it help?
I used the written tutorial and it was very helpful.

5) What would you like to do while waiting for the SMJHL Draft?(Example: Prospect Tournament)
What I have been doing is interacting with GM's and just engaging in other threads in order to get used to the site.

6) Give us one suggestion to make this site easier on new members.
I think that one thing you could do is make important things a little more obvious, for example I had no idea the draft was coming up for the SMJHL. That was probably my fault, but either way it is getting more intuitive the more time I spend on it.
