    Good work guys. We were thinking of adding the illness and/or life circumstances question as well.

    I'd like to know if questions/comments etc. can be posted on this thread or would the Editors/reviewers be posting another thread specifically for that purpose.

    Thanks. I'm fine with talking about it here. I don't think it'll bother anyone, it seems like standard practice.

    Honestly, I'm not sure a "new questionnaire" was required. I completely understand making revisions to the original, but trying to imply this is an alternative is slightly disingenuous. It's the same with additions... So why would anyone bother with the other one?

    I (and I'm sure others) would have enjoyed being involved, or at the very least notified. I do appreciate the credit at the end, but it feels a bit like you guys went behind our backs and did your own thing based off of all the original stuff. It's been stated that alterations/criticisms were welcome in the other thread, and I thought that it was said that we were open to making a new version with whoever wanted to help. Why wasn't that route taken instead? Why the secrecy?

    I'm not trying to start a fight, but it was a little... irksome to find this posted randomly. I'll be willing to PM this conversation if it makes it more comfortable.

    I thought the exact same thing.

    minus the behind the back part.>____> since I wasn't involved in the first one.

    and start a fight. lets see which questionnaire emerges from the rubble. *secretly roots for original questionnaire*

    I agree that listing illnesses is helpful, but that could have been added to the first one easily.

    I'm too busy to respond to your concerns at the moment, but will do so when I'm free of obligations.

    There's never been a consistent method for handling questionnaires. There were many questionnaires before this one and I'm sure there will be many after; historically, someone would just pop up with a new one whenever they felt like it. Eventually some faded away and some persisted, and there you go. The circle of life.

    I was unaware that this would be a problem when I posted it, since I hadn't read the original questionnaire. So I see that this was one was inspired by the last one. What would you all say about merging the two questionnaires into a SUPER-QUESTIONNAIRE?

    Edit: We should have one person who is the official spokesperson for each questionnaire to make it easy.

    Edit 2: Please note that it doesn't need to be a super-questionnaire. It could be a mega-questionnaire or an uber-questionnaire. It's all up to you.

    @timeless

    I don't think it's a problem at all that the existing questionnaire has been revised. I welcome revisions and improvements always. I like some of the changes here and had been thinking of editing the other one to reflect a few of these.

    That said, it would have been inclusive, and I must say respectful, to inform all three co-authors, of the previous questionnaire, of an upcoming one (esp. since it's heavily based on the original), so we could have offered our critique during the editing process seeing as we had come together for the original one and were more than willing to contribute to its improvement. We would have appreciated a heads-up.

    I propose that @Flatlander serve as spokesperson for the editors since he has been alerted of the concerns already, though I would much prefer if critiques and comments were openly directed from creators/editors of both questionnaires. So, it removes the extra time consuming step of consulting things in the background before posting here. There are only 2 editors and 3 co-authors, anyway. I see a productive discussion ensuing, with input from other forum members should they choose to offer suggestions. So, I want open dialogue. Keep in mind that the previous questionnaire was discussed extensively on another thread before being 'released' so to speak.

    As I suggested a earlier, a fresh thread can be started just to discuss the current questionnaire where people can drop by and communicate at their own convenience. Either we keep this thread clean, start another and incorporate suggestions to the OP later or continue discussion here. Like I said, I prefer the former.

    P.S. Having two questionnaires is ok. I would just edit the original one to add the illness/life circumstances question. Then, people are free to choose whichever questionnaire they prefer. I don't see a point to a super-questionnaire. This one, as I said, is very heavily based on the original. So, many questions would be redundant.

    Except that on PerC, there wasn't another questionnaire before ours and nothing about it has "faded away." The original co-authors are still here and the original questions are used almost daily. This isn't the "circle of life."

    I was unaware that this would be a problem when I posted it, since I hadn't read the original questionnaire. So I see that this was one was inspired by the last one. What would you all say about merging the two questionnaires into a SUPER-QUESTIONNAIRE?
    That's my point. The biggest issue I have is that two of the three main authors were unaware (and AFAIK, one third doesn't care), and our material was edited and played with without our consent. The "super-questionnaire" is this one here, since it has almost the same questions as the original but with about three different ones. This isn't an "alternative form," either.

    I truly, truly don't care about the prospect of improving the original. I like improvements, I think they can be made on almost everything, and I welcome ideas to further this goal. What I don't understand is why we were highjacked, why we weren't allowed in on this Important Project. We were highly disrespected, basically implied that the "old hats" are too old to play, too unimportant anymore to bother letting help.

    What should have happened, and frankly what should still happen, is a thread for a "revised questionnaire" be opened and everyone who wants to help can. Without this political crap going on, because that's not a game everyone plays. The original questionnaire was devised by us, by the people, and that's the way it should continue if anyone feels the need to use the majority of our questions.

    How about just adding: "Do you have any illnesses?" to the first questionnaire, and this one could be discarded completely.

    My point is, this questionnaire isnt better or equal to the last one. So it seems a little pointless.
