About 4700 of you have received a survey link yesterday. I sent that to the people who visit Geekzone the most. We had about 9% response rate overnight, which I think is impressive, thank you.


The survey closes by the end of next week, so I will post in this thread results and comments on some of the questions raised.


As mentioned in the email, we have no way to link the responses to individual accounts, so thanks for your honest comments.

I completed the survey overnight. I tried to provide thoughtful responses, as I know you will take them on board to continue the development of the site. There were two questions that I didn't feel I was able to adequately provide a response to so I will share them below. I honestly don't mind my identity being associated with these as they are provided with good intent.

 

 

 

1)  I have been a subscriber in the past but I'm not currently a subscriber. I haven't renewed my subscription this year since the changes were introduced as I'm simply assessing the value proposition. I haven't ruled out a future subscription but for now I'm using the site with adds to see what its like before deciding to subscribe again or not.

 

 

 

2)  The footer add annoys me no end but I'm persevering with it on a desktop. However it makes the site virtually unusable on a mobile device. The only way I can navigate this site on mobile currently is to turn my phone to landscape and when I do this the footer add takes up so much screen real estate that it becomes a frustrating experience. I've said this before, as have many others but the site is crying out for a more mobile friendly experience.

It would be nice to have a message's date given as the local date and time, not the USA date and time. All the forums I participate in show local date and time for a message sent.

 

Unless there is a setting I've missed?

For those of us who have opted out of email communications, is it possible to post the link to the survey here? Or does it need to be personalised to each respondent?

I will PM to you as I don't want it being distributed and possibly not being limited to Geekzone users.

We have now 10% response, which is a good number - but the survey will be open for another ten days so might have a much higher number. If we get to 15% I am happy.

 

I can see four or five topics that are most talked about but won't comment for now as things can change and/or I don't want to influence the answers for people who are still going to fill the survey.

 

Thank you everyone who have submitted a response so far.

I did receive an email with an invite link for the survey, and I parked it at the time wanting to complete it later.  And no surprises given I've completely forgotten about this, until this post, so thanks for the "reminder" Mauricio.  Have completed my survey now...
