@Reggie: No. It is not a technical poll. I said above it is only about the ages. If it would be technical, then extra options could be even meta2tr, plugins, fexinspect, whatever.

What do you mean, it is only about the ages?

If you want to know what is being used primarily that's fine but you used for example flep in one of your answers. Seeing as flep and TRNG scripting is compatible with TE, it would have made sense to offer those under checkboxes rather than single-choice.

As someone who used to be a mod here, knowing the options at your disposal, that's how I would have set the poll up to get more accurate results. But it's up to you, just trying to help.

Trng, ngle and flep are basically together, even if flep is from later, not Paolone's work.
No, checkboxes are not needed here.

Ask another poll, if you do not like it or do not understand it, and I make it.

I mean I alternate between ngle and TE now. So multiple boxes would have been nice lol. I just went with my primary editor of choice at the moment

Engines/patchers should maybe not be mixed into the poll. People already don't want to use Tomb Editor cause they think it doesn't use TRNG and it will break their stuff. TREP is not a level editor either.

Anyway, for me it's TE + NGLE (exporting plugin triggers) + TRNG + FLEP. So primarily Tomb Editor to build the actual levels.

Hello, Jacques!
I tell again: it is not a technicall poll. "Editor" is not a technical notion here. Speaking of TREP, for example, yes, it is not an editor, but it is a milestone somewhere between classic TRLE era and TRNG era. First we all were classic TRLE users, them many of the builders were happy with TREP, and switched to it, then the next big goal was Paolone's NGLE/TRNG. Some builders, including me, were jumping directly from TRLE to NGLE/TRNG, never using TREP. Some of us have all these big milestones: TRLE->TREP->NGLE. Some of us probably are still stuck eg. in TREP. And, yes, here is the next big milestone, Tomb Editor.

Wouldn't it have been too complicated if the poll sounds something like this:
- I am stuck at the classic TRLE era even in 2019,
- I am stuck at TREP, mostly due to Back To Basics.
- I build in NGLE, because I already work on a big project / I still don't have time to learn TE / TE is still a mystery for me etc.
- I have already jumped to TE, building my levels here.

I mentioned TRNG in the options, because TREP also can use an older version of NGLE. But usually when we say NGLE then we mean TRNG, so now it is clearer now.

Again, "editor" does not mean your tool now exactly, "editor" means your actual era now.

I hope the poll is understandable now for everyone, I can't explain it better.

Yes, you understand well, what you wrote means your editor first of all is TE.

Of course!
"I am a level builder" != "I have released a level already or I will".

You are a builder even if you build just to spend your time. (To entertain yourself or to develop a new editor. )

-------------
(For anybody who would like to debate about the meaning of "builder", seeing what I wrote: I said builder definition here not to start a debate about it. Open another thread for that, if you want to.)

I'm still using NGLE, mostly because my current levels are built with that editor, so I'm not going to port them on another editor. Like Titak, I'll consider to switch to TE when TRMain will be complete.
