Oof, @deeplow let’s please kill the banner—and not pin the post for the survey, either. All of the regular users willing to take it, have taken it—and at this point it’s mostly collecting insight from new users.
Survey fatigue is a real thing. For the first 3 months when it launched in 2020, it was important ¡TO POST A LINK TO THE SURVEY FAR AND WIDE SO EVERYONE COULD SEE AND PARTICIPATE! That has thankfully happened, and now the survey is positioned appropriately on the Qubes website to catch the attention of new users, or folks visiting the downloads page for the first time in a while.
At this point, I think we’ve received a few thousand responses to this survey. For the appmenu survey, I believe the count of completed surveys was over 750. Both numbers are very high, for the standard of survey participation—which is around 10% of all users reached by a message.
When we run one-off surveys, I will want those to be done as banners or pinned posts—but it’s essential to not impose cognitive fatigue upon users by doing this too often. TY for caring and for keeping user research needs at the top of your list for the forum migration!
