Last year in September (and April in 2009) I asked readers to fill out a short survey about the site and I used that data to make some changes to the site and its content. Well, it’s nearly a year later and it’s time to do it again. A slightly different survey (max 16 questions and will definitely take you less than 5 minutes) will be used in much the same way–to make your user experience a better one.
The survey is optional and anonymous but know that I will be selecting someone who completed the survey and chose to provide their e-mail address at random to receive a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant. After the window closes on August 5th at midnight, I will be doing the selection and the user will be notified via e-mail of their win sometime on the 6th.
As with anything done here please know that your responses will be kept confidential. However be aware that your responses are stored on Google’s servers as they host the surveying tool and you can take that with as much concern as you wish.
Do you think this survey’s questions are adequate to create a better user experience? Do you think that we do a good job of responding to user suggestions through surveys as well as general feedback? If you’d like to provide public feedback about any part of the site or this survey go ahead and comment on below as I’d definitely love to hear what you have to say.
