I'm already done with phase I in this project were 20 different smileys were presented in Aspie-quiz, and people could give their own interpretations of them. About 190-200 people rated them last week.
The evaluation has been put-up in a wikipedia at my site: http://wiki.rdos.net/wiki/Smiley_test.
What I could use is some help to reduce the number of alternatives. I'm sure there are several explanations that are so similar that they should be merged into one. Anybody can register an acount at the wikipedia and merge entries. This should be done in two ways:
1. Merging entries under "unusual", and moving them to common, and adding (2) after the entry to indicate 2 answers.
2. Merging entries under "common", and marking them with the sum of the answers.
The goal is to have similar number of alternatives for each smiley in phase II, but right now some smileys have many different answers and some have a few very common. People may also add suggestions about which answers to use under "use".

For instance, smiley 1 is usually called "confused" in BBCode, but I personally don't think it looks confused but more disgruntled or frustrated. But I would wonder how many people would answer simply by the common title of the emoticon rather than what they REALLY think it looks like.
