Yes.

Would the mods consider 'gamification' as an incentive for completing certain helpful tasks around the forum? Some folk seem very interested in these stars...as far as I understand they are currently linked to posting frequency?

Could we give people a star for completing the user map and a star for completing the survey? Or make their name go a funny colour, or give them access to a special section of the forum...I don't know, just something that says 'thank you'.

The slow take up on the user map is proof that simply asking forum members to do something isn't enough, it needs to be incentivised.

Even with the +/- 49,000,000,996 margin of error, you make a good point MD. Tongue

Hopefully the latest one wil be around for some time.

It's not ready yet. I've pulled together the survey based on these questions into a form and Deep has started integrating it into the forum - it is awaiting approval from the mods/admins.

Soon we'll have a working copy that we can share with the community for further feedback.

In the meantime, if there are any extra questions or ideas for questions, please post them here.

My 'income' question is in there, much to my surprise. It was just supposed to be a dig at Muffsy.

I'm looking forward to the results, particularly with the silly questions like...
aa) What is your favorite color?
bb) Have you ever seen a grown man naked?

Firs step: Make the questions
Second step: Send the question to every user
Third step: Count the answers
Fourth step: ???
Fifth step: Profit
