First Survey Test

Saturday June 5th, 1999

In preparation for our upcoming vote in the Mozilla Throbber Animation contest, we are testing our new survey code. The survey (and the contest vote) are open to mozillaZine members only, to limit "ballot-box stuffing".

In our first test survey, we ask you to rate some options for our talkback forums. Please be sure to choose a rating for all of the options - your submission won't be accepted otherwise. You will notice some incongruity in the labeling of the choices - this code was initially designed as a survey for "wishes" for Mozilla, and we haven't finished the move to a generic survey yet. Changes will be made before the next test. We will be performing another test of this code in a few days.

Important Note: I neglected to mention it, but the ranking is on a scale from 1 to 20, not 1 to 10. Please take note of this when you vote.

To get started, click here. To view the results, click here. Send any bugs to this address.

Update: The survey is back online - the code to disable multiple postings had been commented out! Sheesh. That made the results of the survey invalid. So, I've recreated the survey, and you can vote again, and hopefully this time it'll work.

I dislike strongly all the proposed changes. I like mozillazine as it is. It is still small enough to not need fancy moderation code; it rarely even needs to display less than all the messages. Please do not change anything. I have been reading mozillazine since the week it was first created (when it was orange and red) and have enjoyed it a lot.

One of the reasons I got tired of slashdot was because all the fancy moderation and forum code kind of destroyed the geek atmosphere and made the site feel more like a commercial portal type thing.
