Make sure it's quick and easy so more people are willing to do it.

I'm all ears.

What do we really want to know about our collective selves?

General demographics
sex (yes please)
birthplace
age
political affiliation (general ones like Conservative, Liberal, Socialist, Communist, etc. Other people in other countries won't get left out there)

And then 20-30 of the questions we generate? More if a lot of them are yes/no, less if most require input.

If its just demographics that's easy enough, I thought we were trying to find out more about our experiences with religion and deconversion.

What? You can contribute, add your own question, modify existing ones or you can sit on the sidelines. I really don't get your post.

This is making it far too difficult for me to aimlessly wander through my day. No one advised me that I would be required to, "want to know shit about others".

My coffee didn't turn out quite right this morning and I'll need the rest of the afternoon to brood about it.

I'm only here to fill out a form.

Thankyew. Drinking Beverage

Get some rest Kim, this is a work in progress. I'm sure we'll create an actual questionnaire on a new thread when done. I would hope this turns out to be a community project and it may take some time to get input from a good number of forum members. Once done it'll be announced (denounced?) from the rooftops.
Please see post #41 on this thread on page 5

RE: An Official TTA Census?
What about a first and second part. First part is the basics like age location etc, then the second part would go into more detail. That way, if it's too elaborate for some, we can still get the basics from them, instead of them skipping it all together.

(personally, I'd do the whole shebang, but I know there are many who won't want to spend the time.)

So many cats, so few good recipes.

The language should be kept simple also, some expression are too cultural specific and I don't want to go back and forth from wordreference to answer each question Tongue

That word ... I do not think it means what you think it means. Dodgy

Do you by any chance mean, Circumcised Y or N?

LOL, no I meant castrated. I'm just entertaining myself. I guess I could have asked if we had any eunuchs or castrati. Big Grin

Oh yeah, well fuck you too Circumference, it's not fucking LOL funny. Don't worry too much it'll happen to you. Angry ... Okay, so maybe it is LOL funny. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
