      This is an interesting thread topic but wouldn't it be a good idea as well to have some way of expressing whether we've found the things we've tried helpful or not?

      Yes, but there's a fixed upper limit of poll choices that can be set, so it couldn't be done in a single poll, e.g. it wasn't doable to have multiple choices of each treatment: hearing aids, they helped me & hearing aids, didn't notice difference.

      That's why it would be nice if voters commented what they have tried and was it successful or not.

      You are right that this sort of poll is interesting enough to warrant a detailed survey. The information gathered could be really beneficial.

      I need to look into online surveys, maybe KwikSurveys would be sufficient for this kind of thing.
      Hopefully we can come up with a better poll/survey for just this soon.

      You are thinking just what I was thinking. Lots of great information, but not in a measurable format. Surveys are a great way for us to develop the trends in what we discuss in the forums. Look at SurveyMonkey.com. Used it in school for a few surveys.

      Thanks for the great effort. Maybe in the right format we can begin to see a trend from all of the members with T.
