Just a heads up that we're currently running a satisfaction survey on Geekzone. 

The survey will appear at the bottom of the page, five seconds after the page is loaded. The survey is just one question (with a 1 - 10 score).

Please answer - nicely - so we can have an idea of how you feel when visiting Geekzone. I know when we ran a similar survey a couple of months ago some people posted a 0 rating just because we were running the survey. Please don't do this as it completely skews the results.

Once you answer the question the survey will disappear.

"How likely are you to recommend this product or service to a friend or co-worker?" what product?

maybe a bit of an introduction as to what it is for and a would you like to participate yes or no would make it less intrusive

I have updated the question to specifically mention Geekzone. If you have already answered the survey, that's it. Otherwise you will the updated question soon.

If I put lots of questions there - "would you like to participate" and a full explanation - then you will spend too much time on that. It's meant to be a three seconds thing.

I agree regarding what product? Are we supposed to recommend the certain thread we are on, the GZ website or...?

I voted 10 anyway, I love GZ, very helpful and friendly people. But I didn't really know what I was giving a 10 for...

As I mentioned, the question has been customised so it should appear as "Would you recommend Geekzone..." from now on.

it may have meant to be a 3 second thing but when you have no clue as to what it is for what its for how are you suppose to answer anything?

i closed it as i considered it to be spam as i didnt know what it was for.

I wouldn't recommend GZ to a friend or co-worker. I like Geekzone, I like the people on here and the new people who find it, but I don't care to invite everyone I know here. That's what Facebook is for. So I answered the question truthfully, which is a low number, but it doesn't recommend my satisfaction with Geekzone.

When you deal with technical people you need to be quite precise with your questions, and interpret the data carefully. For example I once had a secret Santa where the rule was "no boxes of chocolates". I gave a bag of chocolates. Completely within the rules, but the rules were poorly thought out.

I think you folks take the question too literally.

Imagine it like this "If your friend or co-worker needed some help with something, would you recommend Geekzone?"

Unfortunately the standard NPS question is "Would you recommend Geekzone to a friend?" which obviously some of you wouldn't - neither would I. But if someone needs what we have here, would you?

can i ask why if i closed the survey last time i was on the site, am i greeted with it again when i visit?

i know you want people to fill it in, but surely dismissing it suggests you dont want to answer it and shouldnt be greeted with it again

I think it took a tedious 1.3 seconds to complete and absolutely wrecked my schedule for the rest of the day.

you fail to miss the point its not about the time it takes. its about being given no choose but to fill it out or have it show up every time i visit.

if i open 10+ tabs before i realize the survey is there, then complete the survey it doesnt automatically disappear on the other 9 tabs so i now have to close it on those 9 tabs

IMO this is not the right way of going about a survey

This would require some constant synchronous communication between the script and the servers. Once you dismiss in one tab the other tabs would either receive a push notification or constantly poll the server to see if there's anything there about the survey being completed/dismissed.

Seriously, the amount of time this would use on a CPU would make it an interesting exercise when people started complaining about it.

Just fill the survey or dismiss it. The other tabs will still be there but you know you done it so disregard. When you close those tabs it will be gone.

What's so hard about it?

1.3 seconds is not a huge amount of time to help develop a site I assume we like.
