    Oh how I grew to hate that piece of paper. As one of the former sole organizers of the event, the rating form can become a giant pain in the a$$. Some of the long time attendees will remember that we used to fill out the forms and post the results as part of a competition, that's how we ran the Iowa event. It was always a cluster and without fail someone took exception to the reviews that their speaker got. In short someones feelings always got hurt.

    Feedback is great, but for the sake of the organizers sanity I would suggest that if you as a participant want feed back, you should do the leg work.
    Print out the forms you want so you can catch the specific feedback you are looking for.
    Fill in some information on the form so people know who it gets returned to after the show.
    Be prepared for very honest comments. That's the polite way of saying Blunt.

    Just my thoughts feel free to disagree;)

      A recent Iron Driver thread, http://techtalk.parts-express.com/sh...ht=Iron+Driver, yeah, it can cause a lot of heat.

      Man does not live by measurements alone, a little music helps.

        Another positive side effect is filling out the forms tends to focus the audience on listening instead of side conversations that distract those that are trying to seriously listen.

        The side conversations really bothered me. I was sitting toward the back of the hall and the conversations were very distracting and made it impossible to even hear what some of the presenters were saying. A brief comment to a neighbor would be fine but I'd like to think there is time between presentations for longer conversations.

        I've always liked the feedback but find it's a distraction for me to try to document what I'm hearing throughout the day. I have on occasion complimented builders on the things I really liked.

        One thing that influences my perception of a speaker's performance is demo music selection. There are some styles of music that just aren't my cup of tea. It's hard to like a speaker that's playing music that just doesn't sound good to me.

          At almost every DIY event there is often way too much and too loud conversation going on while a presenter is talking about their speakers as well as when they're being played. These distractions at MWAF, however, aren't nearly as problematic due to the format and formal judging, I think. And the chosen demo music can cause serious problems in being able to determine how good, or not, a speaker design is.
