Introducing The SVG Update!

Update (June 23rd) - We have now added zooming capability on clickable map quizzes too!

Maps have been on JetPunk for many years now, and the whole system surrounding then hasn't had a major update since 2016 when we began allowing users to upload their own SVGs. Well today we bring you The SVG Update! This has taken many weeks of hard work, primarily by myself, with the help of a few others that provided feedback along the way.

The SVG Update isn't just for technical users as its name may suggest, it's not even just for quizmakers. It's a major update, and the first named major update from JetPunk! Here's a summary of the biggest additions and improvements we've made, with a full changelog beneath that for those interested.

Summary

  • Clickable Map Quizzes - These have been completely reworked to allow answers to be selected from a scrollable selector, this also allowed them to function much better on Mobile too. Quizmakers can also create them from scratch directly from "Create / Edit Quiz", the editor itself for them has also been cleaned up and drastically improved, especially the Design step. You can also enjoy many new features, including the option to randomize the output of these quizzes.
  • JetPunk Standard SVGs - We now have a set of standardized maps on JetPunk for all the community to use. We have both country and capital versions for the World and each continent, as well as the map of the U.S. too. This goes hand-in-hand with the next point.
  • SVG Selector - Quizmakers can rejoice to find that the whole process of adding SVGs to their quizzes has been completely overhauled. You can now choose to upload your own, or just select a JetPunk Standard SVG, adding it directly to your quiz without having to copy a quiz or download the SVG. Furthermore, we've added a tool to automatically added the necessary IDs to make the SVG responsive and turn green when answers are guessed!
  • SVG Guide - Anybody and everybody who wishes to get started creating their own SVGs can do so easily now, with the help of the fully comprehensive SVG Guide. This guide starts at the very basics, and goes into great depths to teach everybody how to make their own maps. It also has sections for common questions and issues surrounding SVGs on JetPunk, and how to solve them. (Link to it can be found in the quiz editor, under "Create / Edit Quiz" and also at the bottom of every page)
  • Dot Placer 2.0 - Those who may not be aware of the tool we have here on JetPunk to Place Dots on a Map, well we've drastically improved this too. You can now select from many JetPunk Standard SVGs, including all the continents individually. As well as being able to add styling to the circles added, allowing you to mimic the default JetPunk style for cities more easily. (Permanent link can be found in the SVG Guide)
  • Switching Between Desktop / Mobile Site - All users will enjoy the option to easily switch between the mobile and desktop site at the click of a button from the bottom of any page across the entire site!

They are the main additions and improvements implemented. However, we're sure there's many of you that are interested in seeing a list of all the changes that occurred during this update, and so we're here to provide that changelog! If you want to skip past to the comments, you can click the button:

Full Change Log

Click Map Quizzes

Perhaps the biggest change in this update is the complete overhaul of the clickable quiz format usually called "Map Quizzes". These involve choosing an option from a list of answers to match the currently highlighted path of a map / SVG. Here are all the changes to the format, which you can now access directly by clicking the purple button inside of "Create / Edit Quiz" above.

  • Answers during the quiz are now in a scrollable selector instead of scattered over the page. This not only makes the quizzes more compact, but also makes it easier to find a specific answer when there are lots of answers.
  • Map Quizzes now support randomized answers. This can be configured through the "More Options" button in Step 1. It will select a randomized subset of answers from Step 2 to the user.
  • The selector can have its header text, fill and text color all customized in Step 3 of the quiz editor. The height and width of it are also adjustable.
  • You can now Import and Export answers to and from Step 2. The formatting of this is as you may expect, it must be tab-delimited data, with an optional ID column on the far left, then a PATH or HINT column, then finally an ANSWER column. For more help on importing / exporting, see the link provided when importing / exporting in Step 2.
  • Playing Map Quizzes on mobile will now show the selector beneath the map, instead of as an on-device scroll selector. This means the option for more customizable answers, such as images, to be included and work seamlessly across devices.
  • You can now switch the sorting type from Alphabetical to Numerical, meaning that numerical data is now supported as answers.
  • Added shuffle and sort buttons to Step 2.
  • Map Quizzes containing circles or ellipses will now automatically add the "city selector" to the quiz, this is the blue ring that highlights the circles to make them more obvious when selected. This means you don't need to do anything to get it to work, as long as you have circles or ellipses.
  • You can navigate the answers using the arrow keys and the enter key to submit the answer.

SVG Selector and JetPunk Standard SVGs

As highlighted above, another major change we made was to include JetPunk Standard SVGs which are identical across the site. This brings uniformity to the site, as well as making future updates to quizzes much better and providing users who aren't so savvy with SVGs the option to create SVG quizzes.

  • We now have a brand new SVG Options screen within text quizzes and Map Quizzes. This new selector allows you to Select a JetPunk SVG, upload your own, download and remove SVGs. You can also see a preview of your SVG, as well as configure options related to SVGs in the quiz itself.
  • For text quizzes, you can configure the placement of the map, the "Show Missing Dots" feature as well as the option to enable "Hidden Paths" which will automatically hide paths within a quiz until they are guessed.
  • There is now a button to grab all the classes and IDs from a selected SVG so you can easily copy them into Step 2 later on.
  • You can select a JetPunk Standard SVG, choosing from the World map, World capitals, U.S. States map as well as the country and capital maps of each continent. These all have a regulated format, including the path ids all being the 2 letter ISO code for that country / region. A description of each SVG is provided, as well as a preview of it.
  • A new feature called "Auto Paths" has been implemented, this will apply the 2 letter ISO codes of any country, capital or state you have as answers in Step 2. The primary use of this is if you've used a JetPunk Standard SVG, then you can easily type the answers you want into Step 2 and click the "Add Path IDs" button to automatically add all recognised answers. Most alternate names and names from featured languages are accepted as well.
  • The upload limit is now "true" 600kb, rather than the 600,000 bytes it was previously.
  • Added more useful error messages when an SVG fails to upload, hopefully to make it easier to debug why an SVG won't upload.

SVG Guide

The major new addition in this update is a fully comprehensive SVG Guide aimed at new users to SVGs as well as regulars looking to refine their knowledge. This guide aims to provide a clearly laid out, step-by-step guide to making your very own SVG quizzes on JetPunk, including answers to common questions and problems. The SVG Guide is accessible from the footer on any page, or by visiting "Create / Edit Quiz" in the navigation bar.

  • Getting Started - This beginner's section gives a background to what SVGs are, ways you can edit them and how to download and install Inkscape, the best known tool for editing SVGs freely. We also detail how to add classes and IDs to a custom SVG so that we can make it interact with JetPunk.
  • JetPunk SVGs - This next section gives a complete tutorial on how to add an SVG to your quiz, making it light-up answers as well as using the SVG Selector itself. It also provides some background knowledge on JetPunk Standard SVGs and how they're formatted. Finally, we give detailed information on how Click Map Quizzes work, and how to create them yourself, including adding arrows as guides to answers.
  • Advanced SVGs - Once you feel you've mastered the basics, there's an advanced guide looking into the use of CSS and other functions in Inkscape to make more complicated SVGs and quizzes. You'll also find a complete reference to all the standard colors and classes used on JetPunk Standard SVGs and on JetPunk quizzes.
  • Common Questions - Everybody will have questions while making SVGs, it is inevitable. This section aims to solve those queries, including often asked questions as to how to do certain things with SVGs, and what the standard colors are.
  • Troubleshooting - If you're having a problem with an SVG, which for new users is quite likely, then you can head to the Troubleshooting page for help. This will assume knowledge of the rest of the guide, so if you've skipped over the basics, don't expect to find answers to them here. However, if you're having trouble uploading an SVG then we have every error message stated here for you to try and fix your SVG.
  • Other - For all SVG-related topics that didn't fit elsewhere. In particular, we talk about the Dot Placer and how to use it, and the "Show Missing Dots" feature of text quizzes.

Finally, remember that you can always ask questions to me here if you need help with anything SVG related whatsoever!

Other SVG Changes

We have greatly improved the dot placer, as mentioned before, as well as improved the zooming feature of maps.

  • The JetPunk "Dot Placer" will now have the option to draw dots on any continent, as well as the world and U.S. Map.
  • You can now fully customize the styling of your dots being drawn onto the map, although note this styling applies to all dots at once.
  • Dot Placer now works with Alaska and Hawaii on the U.S. Map.
  • The map on the Dot Placer is now zoomable.
  • The class "zoomable-circle" will now work with ellipses as well as with circles, and also adds the "small-stroke" class the same as the "border" class normally would, meaning circles no longer need the "border" class.
  • Fixed multiple bugs that caused poorly-formatted SVGs to zoom in and out incorrectly.

Other Changes

Finally, we come to all the other little changes around the site that wasn't related to SVGs.

  • Even Split will now only show the top score of a user on the leaderboard, this prevents a particular user from flooding the leaderboards with their name.
  • Added the ability to switch between mobile and desktop sites.
  • Fixed issues on tablets with the page width being incorrect due to differing device sizes.
  • When using "fill in the blank" on text quizzes using braces {like} {this}, the contents will now show in Step 4 as they'd appear on the live quiz.
  • Made "fill in the blank" work with Random Group quizzes too.
  • Added the option to format "Groups of Things" quizzes with re-ordering of groups allowed. This makes the balancing algorithm much more efficient, resulting in a more even distribution.
  • Randomized quizzes that are too wide to be shown on single rows will now work on mobile when scroll mode is off.
  • Added a timeout when saving blogs in case your internet cuts out part way through.
  • Deleting a quiz will now tell you in the confirmation box which is being deleted.

That's it! That's all the notable changes we have for you this update. Hopefully this summer I'll try to get more frequent updates out, although that depends whether they're as huge as this or not!

We really hope you enjoy all the new features SVGs now have to offer, and if you have any questions whatsoever, including needing help with anything, please don't hesitate to ask me in the comments section below. :)

I don't think it was intentionally added, but yes it should work. The issue with cropping images is that the functionality simply doesn't work on mobile screens, because we use an external plugin that won't allow the edges to be dragged. If we find another solution that works, then maybe it'll come in the future.

Thank you Stewart! I want to make an SVG map for a questionnaire in Portuguese called "Municipalities of Minas Gerais". But I do not know how to create an SVG, and I think it is better not to upload it on the computer, as I am a child, and there may be a risk of damaging the device, as I do not know how to use it. A good suggestion is to use SVG's as miniatures. Example: The miniatures are made from Pixabay photos, or Wikimedia Commons. The same can be done with SVG maps, taking a map from Wikipedia. But better to go back to the original subject and not intrude KKKKKKKK. How does SVG work? What is the easiest way to put SVG maps in Jetpunk?
+1
Level 68
Jun 18, 2020
Firstly, SVGs are just text files that web browsers can render as pictures. They're completely harmless to any device and downloading and uploading them won't cause any issues like that.

The easiest way to put custom SVG maps onto JetPunk is to upload them directly from your computer. I suggest following the steps on the SVG Guide to getting started with SVGs and downloading Inkscape, since I think is the only way to do what you want.

Alternatively, if you have an SVG map from Wikimedia, there will be no harm downloading it to your device and then uploading it to JetPunk. There is currently no way planned to allow maps to be imported like that from Wikimedia.

Did you mean Wikipedia or Wikimedia? I'm kind of confused, because I said both kkkkkkkkkk. I already tested inkscape, but I don't remember when.

I mean Wikimedia, not Wikipedia. Wikimedia is simply the location where most images on Wikipedia are stored. However, some are not free-to-use, and so are not on Wikimedia. This is why we must only use Wikimedia.

For tutorial on how to use Inkscape, there is the whole SVG Guide just released today to help with that!

I'm not entirely sure what you want to do? I can see the Wikipedia page, but what are you trying to create? If you're trying to make just municipalities of Minas Gerais, then it seems this SVG from Wikimedia will work: File:Mesorregiões de Minas Gerais.svg.

Let me know if that is what you wanted to do, and then I'll walk you through the steps you need to turn that into a quiz!

I had the idea when I saw an IAB questionnaire, which follows below: https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/309965/municipios-da-bahia-em-um-mapa However, Quizmaster restricted the number of responses to 500. Now that this number has increased, the chance of creating a questionnaire with SVG has become even greater, and after I saw this post, I was thinking about this possibility. I'll see your link, and I'll reply.

Jun 18, 2020
Oh I see now, I believe this is the SVG you want then File:MinasGerais Microrregions.svg? The only issue is it's almost 2 megabytes, and the limit on JetPunk is 600 kilobytes. So it is almost 3 times the size. I'm not sure how IAB got around this issue with his map, though he probably created himself in Inkscape.

To make it in Inkscape, no it can be any size whatsoever. However it may be very difficult to upload if you can't get it below 600 kilobytes. There are some suggestions on how to reduce the size of an SVG on the SVG Guide though.

Jun 18, 2020
Hmm. Are there any other sites that you work with SVG Map on? And how to reduce the size of the SVG? I see that the SVG Guide has a huge size, and I am too lazy to read everything, in addition to having some "adult" or "advanced" parts, because I am still 10 years old KKKKKK

Jun 18, 2020
Inkscape is the only one I know and use. The help to reduce the SVG is in "Troubleshooting".

Sidenote: I didn't spend several weeks writing a full SVG Guide just for people to say "it's too big, I can't be bothered". If you never read it and never at least try, you will get nowhere. There's no magical software I can give you to create the SVG instantly and easily, it'll take work and effort.

Jun 18, 2020
You're absolutely right, Stewart! Everything in life is difficult! Nothing is done with pirlimpimpim powder. I will read the Guide properly and try to solve this. Does SVG decrease serve both for Inkscape and Wikimedia Commons? Changing the subject a little, there's one thing I noticed in Jetpunk's user profiles: everyone has a place of residence and I don't. Do I need to reach any level for this? Another thing, I asked the Quizmaster a while ago to put a quiz that I created (so far the only one in English) on the homepage. But he never gave me a return. My quizzes are not very successful. You can also put quizzes on the home page, or is it just QM?
+4
Level 68
Jun 18, 2020
The making of SVGs to be smaller should work for both Inkscape and Wikimedia SVGs. So you can try with Wikimedia ones first to see if that works.

Also, while I technically have the power, I don't often use it and never do for English. Getting quizzes featured (i.e. on the front page) isn't a very common thing among quizmakers, and requires Quizmaster to think your quiz is amazing and will bring lots of users to the site. This is how featuring works on the site, when Quizmaster feels your quiz is suitable for featuring he will feature it on his own accord. Contacting him asking for it to be featured or on the front page won't change that, and could actually make things worse.

Here is a blog written by Quizmaster on the topic: How to make your quiz eligble for points

But going back to the initial subject, I will try to do what you explained to me. If it works, it works, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work.

SVGs are just plain text. They are comprised of just numbers and letters, so this is not a virus. You should notice at the very start that it begins with either "<svg>" or "<xml>" or something very similar to those. If you get that then it's all fine. Remember, since they're text files, you can just open them in any text editor (like notepad) and it will show you what an SVG "looks like" on the inside.

Okay, so first you don't want to use "Word" for this because that always saves files as "word documents" not as an SVG format. What you need to do is open up a plain text editor, something like Notepad, TextEdit or WordPad. You then need to paste your code into there, and "Save as", make sure you save it with ".svg" on the end, otherwise this will not work. Then you may try uploading this to JetPunk instead, but it must have the file extension ".svg" on the end of the name, not ".doc" or ".docx" or even ".txt".

We have thought about making an application for JetPunk, yes. Unfortunately the process of making an application is a massive undertaking that would take years of development even for a small team of developers.

Stewart, you could use Notepad, which is the only one I have that you talked about. You also said that I should insert the SVG source code, and I copied it from SVG Minify. It worked, and you also told me to insert the SVG image I want. But unfortunately, Notepad does not accept images. How can I do SVG now? Footnote: In Inkscape I don't know where I draw, and how to look perfectly like the SVG map...

Jun 19, 2020
I never said to insert the SVG image into Notepad. Once you have pasted the source code from Minify, and then saved as an .svg file, then you can try uploading that to JetPunk. It would be pointless to paste in your original SVG image as that's too big in size.

In Inkscape, you literally draw on the page. That is all described in the "Getting Started" page on the SVG Guide...

Both questions are answered clearly in the SVG Guide (first in Getting Started, for the third time, and the other at the very start of Common Questions).

Stewart, I know I've gone too far for you, but I don't want to piss you off. I didn't come to Jetpunk to piss people off, I'm just a little confused by Inkscape and these other ways to create an SVG map. I can't "store" so much information, codes, ID's, etc. I will not talk about SVG in that question. But I realized in many Jetpunk quizzes, that in a single question, I can add two or more lines of answer. Example: Tip: Which countries are neighbors to the USA? Answers: Canada and Mexico. However, there is a way to format on two lines for the same question, instead of putting "Canada" and "Mexico" on the same line. Is this function restricted to some users? Or can I configure it in Manual mode in the Design Grid? If I have a guide for that, I'll look...

Do you mind if I disturb you a little? (Of course it matters :/)... Do you know about the SVG Map that I wanted to reduce? I used SVG Minify because I found it an easier option. I entered the URL of the file, then copied the code, and pasted it into Notepad. I saved it as: SVG Jetpunk.txt and went to the Quiz in SVG Options. I sent it to Upload, and chose the file name mentioned above. But he said it exceeds 600 kilobytes. And I had already reduced! I read in the SVG Guide on the Troubleshooting tab, but it doesn't talk about problems after the reduction. Is that why you prefer to use Inkspace? Did I do any wrong steps? Where in the SVG Guide do you advise me to read to solve this problem?

For the first point: To make two answers have the same question, you can go into Manual Mode in Step 4 and merge the question cell down so that it appears to be for both questions. Alternatively, if you want them side by side, then you can add a new column in Step 4 in Manual, then click the cell next to the first answer, go to "Manual cell options" at the top and change the cell type to be an answer cell and choose the one you want.

If your file is still too big even after using Minify, then it is impossible to get around this. There will simply be no way to shrink that original file small enough. (That is the correct method to use using Minify though!)

The only way to get around this would be to draw it yourself in Inkscape, that way you can make it much less detailed and under 600kb. To do this, you can "trace". This means taking an image of what you want, then paste that image into Inkscape. Then use the "Pen" tool described in the guide to draw over it.

Once an SVG has been put through Minify, then putting the result of it through again will make no difference, so in effect yes you can only put it through once.

Nope no mobile version, only desktop. You need to choose whichever one your device is, so if your computer is Windows, then choose Windows. You do this direct from the download page.

Stewart, I know you're very busy, but there is a feature on Jetpunk, which I see in some Quizmaster quizzes, and in some of yours too. In this quiz here: www.jetpunk.com/quizzes/us-state-flags, some flags reveal the name of the state, so these "answers" were taken. I particularly find this very interesting, as I did a similar quiz, however with the capitals of Brazil: www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/1264853/bandeiras-das-capitais-brasileiras. But some flags reveal answers, and I don't know how to put them out. Is there any way to do that? Or is this restricted to QM and you?

I believe you're referring to the fact some state names were removed from the flag image itself. This was done by editing the images manually and re-uploading.

It is true that they are the creators of Jetpunk, but I think the resources that Quizmaster and Stewart have, could be used by us. I'm not trying to say that we have everything they have, but there are some privileges that we could enjoy to improve the quality of the quizzes, and to attract more people here. Jetpunk deserves recognition from everyone, always improving and improving, but this can happen if, for example, we put flags on the tips of a text quiz, delete items that may reveal answers in a photo test (although I don't know if this feature is restricted to Quizmaster and Stewart), and others, because these resources will be the ones that can attract the most people here.

So I asked Quizmaster in the promotion asking him to put my quiz on the home page, but he never came back, I came here to ask, and you already gave me the answer. Now, in my copy in English, I only had 12 comments, (and about 7 or 8 were mine :/). They only found out, DodomaAstatine (which I asked to publicize my work too), ChineseChen (who had answered before you, so I never remembered to check), and ABritishCat (which I really don't know why O_O).

OK so first, quizzes only go onto the homepage if they have the MOST takes on that day. The problem is, you can't ask Quizmaster to do it for you.

There is unfortunately barely any way to promote your quizzes. A good way to do this is to create a blog promoting your quizzes (but don't make more than 2 blogs per week, or else the Recent User Blogs section will get conjested). Another thing you can do is to tell your friends/family to take your quizzes.

I know that if I were from another country, I would be angry, but not as much as I am now. Look: Crime of Violation of Copyright in Art. 184 - Penal Code, which says: Art. 184.

Ok, ok, MG. We can't have a court like that. It is simply not worth our time to argue about certain Sporcle users. Sorry to say, but JetPunk doesn't have the money to do this stuff. It will be a complete waste of money if we did. Keep in mind that we're not a Fortune 500 company.

By the way, most of the time Sporcle cooperates with us. They've deleted most of the plaigiarised quizzes. While some of the users on the Sporcle website plaigiarise quizzes, we can't call the entire site itself inheritenly bad. So it would not be worth our time to have a JetPunk court. The sheer amount of money for a court could be used to implement more features to JetPunk. Suing Sporcle won't do anything.

Yes you are right. Remembering that I only came here in October, and I never saw such cooperation. The good thing is that these quizzes have been deleted. Every time I do a quiz based on someone else, I try to ask the original creator, or place a reservation giving the copyright. But spending it for nothing, there is no way to make improvements ... On second thought, it was good to be a zen man at Jetpunk, because Sporcle would never plagiarize any quiz of mine ... I was just disappointed because here in Brazil (and I don't know if in other countries it is also) plagiarism is a crime, and I really don't want this for anyone, even for Sporcle, look: Crime of copyright infringement in art. 184 - Penal Code, which says: art. 184. Infringement of copyrights and related rights: Penalty - imprisonment, from 3 (three) months to 1 (one) year, or traffic ticket. Imagine! 1 year for copying something without giving due copyright?

How about the option that the system highlights the country names and the user selects them on the map? The scrollable lists make the quizzes so much slower to answer than before (and to me, also less fun). For example, when doing the Africa map quiz, you start with Morocco, then scroll all the way up to Algeria, all the way down to Tunisia, back to the middle for Libya and all the way up again for Egypt. My work around right now is to select the countries on the map in alphabetical order and just go down the list. But if it is a city quiz, it is hard to select the exact spot and I end up with a lot of accidental zooming instead of selecting ... Overall, I really preferred the previous version.

Thanks, got it. I clearly don't spend much time on the front page, once I jump into a quiz I don't navigate back to the front page but usually use the "More" links to navigate to either New and Reset Quizzes or another option in that list. If it were democratic, I'd vote for the nominated quizzes to be added under "More" also.

How do I make cities like the Ruhr and Cologne / Dusseldorf appear grey on the map? When I colour them that in Inkscape, they automatically correct to orange on Jetpunk.

Countries and Cities are coloured using classes on JetPunk maps. You can remove this styling in the style node. To do this, open the XML Editor and scroll to the top of it. You should see a node called "svg:style". Click on it, and inside will be some text. Remove anything (in this case) related to the class "zoomable-circle". This means removing ".zoomable-circle { ... }" and everything between the {}. After doing this, all circles will likely lose their styling, so you can manually change the styling for all the circles to be what you want. (You can select objects of the same style at once by going Edit > Select All... > Same Fill iirc)

It seems pretty good except for one thing, the borders on the countries seem a bit thick, or maybe a darker colour. I have made sure they are the same colour and thickness as the normal world map, but they still look slightly different.

Hmm, not sure. Could be anything really, would need to look at the SVG itself.

Looks like you changed the stroke opacity and color but not the width. This can be changed under the right-most tab of "Fill and Stroke"

Could a function to report users be added? There have been a few users that spam or make exact duplicates and reporting every single one of their quizzes is a pain in the butt.

If they get enough valid reports then Quizmaster will consider them for being hidden anyway.

Stewart, in regard to your series of sequential quizzes, I was wondering if I could copy one of those quizzes and adapt the answers to make a series out of it? every quiz will have a caveat with credit to you obviously since I would have no clue how to create a sequential quiz from scratch.

It will be easy and quick to make, just a simple countries starting with each letter. With letters like q and z some will be combined for sake of quality. no one wants a quiz of just one answer as qatar.

thanks! Huh, creating the first few quizzes it won't let me submit due to "errors that must be corrected before the quiz can be submitted." I think it's due to the fact that in the SVG map there are still the SVG IDs for all the other countries. I'm going to send a collaboration request for the B quiz to show you what I mean.

They're just options that existed beforehand. All they do is place the dots inside a blank svg, in the right place but with no countries or anything behind them. But yeah, they're only there because they were beforehand. Don't know anybody that's actually used them

Hi Stewart, I used last two options but it can't provide SVG ID's in this quiz

Stewart, I am replying to your comment on my blog. I am glad that my blog helped. I was not using reverse psychology. I just found it weird that many users asked for new features and most of them don't know the effort it takes to make new features on Jetpunk.

Thanks a lot, and I know you weren't using reverse psychology, it just happened to work similarly :)
