This is the 17th duplicate (18th version)   of my question (re. new      
floss holder), and it is reposted due to changes. Pictures in page .Only 'yes' to questn 1 is good.      
The web-page is mostly how-to-use pictures. This floss holder is      
good for about 250 all-teeth flossing.       
1.Are you flossing frequently using only floss,2 hands and nothing       
2.Is it clear from this web-page how to use this product, and how many      
minutes have you (the researcher) spent on it?         
3.The Researcher is asked to answer with one word the question of      
whether he/she would use it in at least seldom/partly(if received free)?

I'm happy to make some comments and justify my answers, I was just
worried I was overloading with information you didn't need or want.

I'm not quite sure as to how you intend to format your page (whether
you will simply use this image for your whole page or not).  If you
are, here's a warning - search engines won't like it.  There is no
text on your page, and a search engine can't read the text on an
image.  Maybe you should try to remodel your page into html.  For more
info on search engines, here are some questions about the subject I
have previously answered:

How to get my page in a Search engine result and that too at the top?

Why does google not list even though I can go to
it directl

how to get Google index

The reason I would not use the product is a personal one.  I'm too
lazy to set up the Floss Tensioner each time, and flossing normally
with two hands satisfies me.  The design seems a bit complicated, and
tricky, and maneuvering the tensioner inside my mouth seems

Nonetheless, I love the idea - and I really mean that.  It's very
clever and worth following up.  I'm no market person, but it would be
nice selling the device with some floss in a package - I think it
could do well.

Finally, I think your page needs to be more linear than artistic. 
HTML would be appropriate for that, but unfortunately, I cannot help
you with that, but this page could be of use:


The explanations seem to be a bit awkward and confusing.  Maybe you
should match up the image steps with the explanations, and add a bit
more flair to the text.

I hope this helps, and if you need any further help, please feel free
to ask.

Hello  bobby_d-ga,
You deserve 10 stars from my point of you.
The web page is only a draft used to find out whether i am able at all
to communicate the product to others. This is much more difficult then
getting a the patent and developing the product.
Initially i was thinking that the product is so obvious that all is
needed to put it in a bag and call it 'tensioner'.
One of the reasons the product has that strange shape is to let the
tensioner's prongs alone to do the flossing job. Everything else (but
part of the floss) is outside the mouth, all the time.The fist is
orbiting outside.
Would be happy getting more from you.
thank you.

It is a very interesting product indeed - good luck with it.

i'm happy to give you more information, but I don't understand what
you would like me to comment on:  would you like me to help you
redesign the image in some way - I personally think that would be very
interesting, and there is potential to improve your format.  Or do you
want more info on HTML?  Or help with marketing?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to reply for another 18 hours, but I
will try to help you then.

Also, there is only so much I can help you with for $1.50.  Of course,
I am more than happy to clarify what I have said so far, or if you
want more input, but substantial work would require additional

Thanks again, and please feel free to ask for clarification!

Good luck,

I'm glad that you are pleased with my answer, and I apologise for that
misunderstanding.  I really hope this all works out for you!  Make
sure that you clear up those explanations to make it more readable,
and make the whole thing more linear - just my personal opinion of
what would improve the instructions.

Thanks very much for the question!
