But a dark threat loomed over the land. With one product using SurveyMonkey,
other products seemed poised to use it, too [1]. The compromise built

would take to find and set up a free [2] solution was beginning to bleed
over into other projects where no such time crunch was present.

Our heroes now reach out to their friends in other realms [3]. Is there
hope for freedom in the land of getting user feedback? Will MediaWiki
or the grander Wikimedia ecosystem soon have a survey tool that all projects
can use with minimal hassle?
For other large surveys, like the annual user survey we used to run via CentralNotice banners,[1] we've also used a third party solution, Qualtrics. I think we still pay for it actually. SurveyMonkey is actually a much better system, since we don't necessarily have to pay for it, and it's easier to use for survey takers and creators.
Mark, If you haven't looked at Qualtrics in the past, check it out. It has many more options than SurveyMonkey that can make it worthwhile specially if we are already paying for it.
