Update 2-July: Survey is now closed. Thanks, everyone!
If you’re a regular or occasional reader of this site, help me out by taking a few minutes to fill out a short survey.
Most of the questions are the sort you’re familiar with if you’ve ever filled one of these out, designed to give potential advertisers a clue as to the demographics of the people who visit here. In addition, I convinced Federated Media to let me add five questions that are specific to this site. Those results will help me determine what you want me to write about.
As an incentive, I’ve got five copies of Windows Vista Inside Out or Windows XP Inside Out (retail value $35 or more) to give away to a randomly selected group of respondents. To qualify for that drawing, leave your (real) e-mail address in the box next to Question 19. If you’d prefer to remain anonymous, just leave that box blank.
Thanks for your help.
Update: The link to the “thank you” page that should appear after you click Submit is pointing to an internal address instead of an external URL. It appears the survey is being submitted correctly, but I’ve sent a note to the folks at FM asking them to look into this issue and fix that link. Update 2: Link to the “thank you” page is now working properly. I’m assured that all previously submitted surveys arrived safe and sound, so if you got the error page at the end there’s no need to fill in the survey again.

I like how the example age year is ‘2002.’
Ah yes. My readership in the preschool demographic is very strong.
when I clicked the submit button on the form, I was sent to a non-valid URL… (http://external/surveys/done.php?id=139)
I got the same issue as sirshannon. We need a fully qualified URL (or a login into your domain… :D) please?
Completed the survey, hit submit, “Firefox cannot locate the server”. Back button, poof all gone. 😦
Ditto on the above errors. Ed, you should sweeten the prize pot by autographing those copies.
Yep…server error after completing the survey.
I promise the free copies will all be autographed, and I will make sure enough will be available to make everyone happy.
Sorry, all. Working on it now.
Just replace http://external/surveys/ with http://external.fmpub.net/surveys/ to see the Thank You-note.
Does this mean the survey made it through, it just wasn’t acknowledged?
That survey was highly biased toward employed people. What about the “bum” demographic that never gets accounted for — every family’s got one or two, right?
I mean, I didn’t know what to check for a few questions.
Okay submitted, but server errored out…what’s going on?
It appears the survey is being submitted correctly but the link to the “thank you” page is pointing to an internal address instead of an external URL. I’ve sent a note to the folks at FM asking them to look into it.
Hope the ‘submit survey’ link gets fixed soon! I tried twice, no joy.
Survey link should be fixed now, and if you filled in a survey previously I am assured that it was recorded.
Yup, completed with no problem and proper “Survey Submitted” page at the end of the process.
I want a free book!!! I demand a free book!!! I want the Inside XP one!!! My mother said to always say please, but she’s not around…… so give me my f*ing book!!!! 🙂
