RE: An Official TTA Census?
So whenever this is actually made... we can expect a new thread right? With two links to survey questions? Basics and some more in depth ones? Is someone working on this now? If so, who?

Maybe I can create a form that has the relevant options.

Cool. I was hoodwinked into this position by some people I used to like.

Anyway, I have asked for input and received some but it has only been a day. I'm fine with leading the coordination for the questions and I'll happily let you create the official questionnaire. Does that work for you DT?

Please see post #41 for the questions being considered
