That's true blackcatsmith! but when I loose a disc playng with friends, not in a tournament, I spend so much time looking for it... maybe because it's always my favourite to flyes out from the fairway, maybe because i'm too hardheaded... for me it's more a matter of wasted time than need to buy spare discs. Of course, throwing better could be an elegant solution

The options for losing a disc are wrong. I rarely lose a disc, but if I do[and am hunting for it], its on courses that are the least busy.

Thanks ohtobediscing, The meaning had to be: courses with more bushes, trees, branches and long grass. Maybe "busy" was not the right word... we learn a lot of English words reading posts here: I didn't know, for example, to landfill...

^^^Now I understand; that makes more sense. Wish I'd remembered that our euphemisms don't always coincide.

Hang around here and you'll find out what landfill/threadlock/prerube means soon enough.

Hamandcheese, i want to be supportive, especially seeing that youre from an area that needs further dg expansion...
However...with the survey being sold as a school project, i expected less biased questions.

In the states when i was a kid there used to be a very stupid joke:
Are you gay?...does your mom know youre gay?

Answering no lends itself to imply that your mom is unaware that youre gay.

Thats what this survey reminds me of...loaded questions :/

Thanks craftsman for your post. Now I understand better also another comment about "loaded" question. Apart my undeniable linguistical limits, I have to say that I didn't pay so much attention to the form of questions and answers that I did suggest to my friend. She was more formal, scientific and precise and I suggested her some kind of irony. I was afraid that readers could feel the few questions a little boring and too serious. Probably she was right... she will be a good engineer!
Anyway... that university has a department to study radio-communication stuff. I'm a new disc golfer and I suggested them a sort of exercise. They said, that's ok for a dissertation. At that point, ask to other players if they would appreciate the device was the only, simple, aim of the survey. I hope this is clearer

Thanks again for your attention and support

While your assumptions would normally stand correct, we here on dgcr are the minority that takes the game a lil more serious.

I dont know how feasable it is, but id be more than happy to answer the survey with her originally intended questions.


Aslo, fwiw (for what its worth), disc finding aids seem to intrigue newer and developing players MUCH more then veteran players; to the point where the need almost seems laughable.

Good luck in everything

Great! this kind of information is very clear and precious.
As I said, for her job it was easier to collect data with a survey instead of interviewing players (because we don't have players here!), but I really appreciate your help
