Hey Andrea,

Please feel free to spread the survey. We posted the survey to the talkpage of every participant on commons, so assumed that they would get notified by email thanks to that. 

Please note that this survey is focused on participants though. A more general organizational survey will follow in one/two weeks once the juries are finished :)

Hi all, sorry for not reading the whole conversation, 
maybe I missed what I'm going to ask you:

is the survey only Commons-based? 
I was thinking that it would maybe good to involve chapter/organizing teams
to spread the survey. 
Has someone already done it?

I find strange that it is used for showing news intended for one or
other countries. The accept-language header should not be used to
determine the locale [1] (or at least not be the sole way to do it).
But if that config is ok for you, just use it. Just be aware of the

We expected you to talk about both your Dutch and US experiences :)
I guess there may be some bias there for multi-country uploaders.

I took a look and we currently have 156 people claimng to have uploaded
from several countries out of 1293 answers.

In some cases they are claiming where it's only one: "it,other |
Italia", "ar,other | Argentina", "nl,other | Nederland".
In others I wonder how they managed to choose "Ukraine" (written just
above "United States") fill "other" (written just below) and yet not see
the United States checkbox: "ua,other | United States". Maybe they
thought they were clicking "United States". :/

Other people may have thought we asked about the photos uploaded to
Commons or the photos they had in their computers, instead of WLM ones:
"ca,fr,de,it,es,ua,us,other | Grèce, DOM (France) , Turquie , Portugal"

We also had three people marking the 35 countries (and another, 32). I
am a bit skeptical of those.

After removing duplicates, 784. We will easily double that.
