This is my second try using the Flickr slide show model for pictures rather than showing each picture on the main page of the quiz. This way, I get to control the size of the images and you get to control the speed by clicking through them (rather than letting the slide show run). Thoughts?
Jan 15th, 2011 at 04:37 GMT
Also- any thoughts on whether this should be forced order?
Jan 15th, 2011 at 04:48 GMT
Please add the Question # onto the Graph itself as a title. After a while clicking through, I wasn't sure which graphs correlated to which questions
Jan 15th, 2011 at 04:48 GMT
I had to do a lot of enlarging so i could see what the lines represented, more time would help got all but 1 but I knew them as soon as I knew what each line represented. Cool idea though.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 06:09 GMT
@Hejman: I really enjoy this format, and how I'm able to stare at an image longer than others. Thanks for an awesome quiz!
Jan 15th, 2011 at 07:19 GMT
Accept "Suzuki" for Ichiro.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 13:36 GMT
@minnmich- I need to do that manually, but will do so. @adamnvillani- I didn't originally do that because the order of names in a number of Asian languages is reversed (thus, Ichiro is the family name which is why he's called that), but there's no harm in accepting it to avoid confusion so I've added it. Thanks for the suggestions.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 16:34 GMT
very good quiz but @hejman you are wrong about ichiros name. Ichiro is actually his given name while Suzuki is his family name. Source: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=lukas/041216
Jan 15th, 2011 at 16:39 GMT
Well, shoot! Glad I added it then! You really do learn something new every day, I guess.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 16:49 GMT
Well I gave it a 5.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 17:28 GMT
i would force order cuz its too easy to just guess alltime greats
Jan 15th, 2011 at 18:08 GMT
Just when I think every concept has been done by Sporclers, I get presently surprised by a new brilliant idea. Fantastic! 5/5
Jan 15th, 2011 at 20:05 GMT
Great concept, great execution. And I learned something new - I had no idea Maddux struggled with control that much early in his career. 5/5.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 20:54 GMT
I would force answers in order. I got one by guessing (I didn't even realize it wasn't forced order for awhile actually), and I don't see how it could hurt to force them in order.
Jan 15th, 2011 at 21:20 GMT
This is a really excellent idea, and the players are very well-chosen. One minor point: it would be nice if, when the slideshow is paused, it didn't cover up quite so much information at the bottom. Personally, I'd be against forcing in order, since you're already doing a lot of clicking around.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 03:36 GMT
Great idea! Would love to see more of this type.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 03:51 GMT
Great idea, well executed. Pujols's graph is just sick. 5 globes.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 03:59 GMT
Thanks for the feedback and the kind words, everybody. I'll surely do another of these for baseball and, perhaps, some for other sports (though the statistics-intensive nature of baseball makes it perfect for this). @plujan- I'll see if I can find a feedback button on Flickr to share that comment. @strags11- What Albert Pujols and Ichiro Suzuki have done is really just incredible. Every year I expect some drop-off from them and it just never comes.
Jan 20th, 2011 at 09:45 GMT
I've taken nearly 3000 quizzes on Sporcle. This is my favorite.
Jan 20th, 2011 at 11:49 GMT
Wow, thanks jfeigen06!
Jan 20th, 2011 at 20:34 GMT
very unique quiz. Ditto on Pujols....only takes a moment to recall who is THAT consistent.
Jan 20th, 2011 at 21:07 GMT
Thought it was really cool how the graphs really told a story until a name sort of coalesced in my head. Really cool quiz idea.
Jan 20th, 2011 at 23:28 GMT
You really don't realize just how insanely good Pujols has been until you see the graphs of some all time greats bouncing around and his is essentially two straight lines
Feb 26th, 2011 at 17:38 GMT
Great quiz - the only problem is that if you're not in slideshow mode (pausing it and clicking to advance) the arrows on the sides obscure the legend and make it so you have to wait to read what stat is being depicted. Still, five globes.
Feb 27th, 2011 at 01:14 GMT
Interesting concept, but I wasted a lot of time scrolling up and down. While I'm not sure if I would have gotten Omar, I know I would have gotten Junior if I had a little more time. It also took me some valuable time to figure out how to best view the slideshow.
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 17:12 GMT
Great quiz, would like to see one with more obscure players
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 18:22 GMT
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 20:32 GMT
Excellent. Some of these were easy (who else would have so many spikes in a no-hitters chart?), and some really made me think (...hang on, that wins chart spikes at just over 30 wins in 1968...got it!). Kicking myself for not getting #17 - he was a favorite of mine in the '80s.
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 22:15 GMT
Force answers in order. Especially when you have Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson on the same quiz when their careers were very similar.
Comment below threshold:
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 22:39 GMT
this quiz was really bad
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 23:01 GMT
I agree with the answer each question by itself. I got Randy Johnson on the Greg Maddux graph. I didn't look at the number of walks, just that wins went up as walks went down.
Mar 3rd, 2011 at 05:23 GMT
At first, I thought that the Ted Williams graph was a mistake since it went over .400 more than once, but this quiz inspired me to find out that he also went over .400 in the partial seasons before and after he came back from the Korean War in 1952 and 1953.
Mar 3rd, 2011 at 12:17 GMT
Really cool quiz
Mar 3rd, 2011 at 14:02 GMT
Definitely should be guessed in order. I guessed Griffey for Bonds (yeah, stupid but w/e) and thought I was right.
Mar 3rd, 2011 at 15:14 GMT
Accept either "Ichiro" or "Suzuki"
Mar 3rd, 2011 at 15:37 GMT
Very unique! Had a lot of fun doing this.
Mar 3rd, 2011 at 18:30 GMT
@airborne79- The quiz does accept both Ichiro and Suzuki. It always has.
Mar 5th, 2011 at 02:34 GMT
This is the first quiz that I've gotten absolutely perfect. As in, I got every answer right, in the right order, with out a single wrong answer typed in. Feel free to vote me down, I just thought this was really amazing. Excellent quiz.
Mar 8th, 2011 at 16:53 GMT
I briefly had trouble with this quiz, as the arrows obscure the legend that tells you what the lines represent, and the thumbnails cover up the years at the bottom. However, all you have to do is type one letter and they fade away. Excellent quiz. Five globes.
Mar 16th, 2011 at 23:41 GMT
@Hejman: Congratulations on this quiz being "published" on espn.com — http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/7496/thursday-thurmans — Hope Sporcle sees fit to publish it soon, perhaps on opening day! *wink*
