One of the big changes for Dev Gym is a de-emphasis on the competitive aspect of quizzes, combined with making it much, much easier for a visitor to quickly take a quiz from our library of 2000+ quizzes.
So far, overall, feedback has been quite positive, and we are very pleased.
But a number of longtime players have offered feedback like the following:
About Dev Gym: It is much easier to find what you want to do with this layout. The only thing I miss is the Dashboard where I can see at a glance the results of the latest quiz and maybe "Top Players (and You)", especially when I'm not at the first page of the Leaderboard :-)The home page of the PL/SQL Challenge offers both a dashboard (sorry about this "empty" example, but as a site admin, I cannot compete):
and a Top Players (and You) section:
We will show lots of the Top Players report on our Leaderboard page, no problem there. But we'd like to add a high-level dashboard to the Dev Gym home page.
Requirements for this dashboard include:
- Simple, clean presentation: keep the amount of text and data to a minimu
- Make it interesting for both competitive players and those simple wanting to strengthen their skills
So I have decided to ask our players to give us feedback: what would you prioritize for display in the dashboard? Can you point to any other sites that present this sort of data in a way you find helpful, intuitive, dazzling?
