Thanks Tilman. Good to see the offer is in the public FAQ.
I was on my phone at the time I saw it, and having some time on my hands I
tried to fill it in. I managed to screw up the survey software on the
languages selection by trying to select more than one, and then it wouldnt
let me pick any. I quit thinking I would get another chance...on my desktop.
I dont remember if the survey told me that I would only have one chance...
Do you know how many people have seen the banner vs how many have completed
Is there a page which lists pros and cons of this approach?
I think the WMF should collect all the survey data they can. Maximum ROI
and all that.
You can use models to select a subset of the 2012 data that would be
comparable to the 2011 data.
