closing (and opening) the user survey?

Hey everyone,

I hope this email finds you well. I got a request today from
someone wanting to look at the survey results. How do you feel
about just sharing the full document? We're at 580 responses
right now, and it's been really a slow trickle in last couple of
weeks after the initial splash. Or we could do another round on
twitter and G+ and say the survey will be closed at the end of
the month, and then release the results.

Thoughts?

best,

It was me :slight_smile:

Only a day to day user who follow matplotlib (and other famous libs) development. I clicked on the survey thinking it was public. Anyway it was only curiosity so if you prefer keep it secret, it’s cool for me !

Keep the good work guys !!!

You could provide the "summary view" of the results: google doc generates
this view automatically, with nice charts etc, and updates it. For people a
bit curious, it's a nice way to have a quick feedback without having to run
any analyses of the results or to close the survey.

I'm fine with that. I actually had the same idea yesterday. I don't think we'll get many more responses than we already have.

I'll go ahead close the survey and then make an official announcement on the usual channels.

best,

I’m not quite back to normality here after getting back from over a month out of the office (Scipy’13 taking a chunk of that time) and didn’t manage to fill in the questionnaire. I guess it doesn’t matter too much that I didn’t manage to fill it in (I know my own users, all 250+ of them, pretty well after all), but I wonder whether there are others in a similar situation who didn’t get a final social nudge to get on and fill in the questionnaire because time was running out. If we do something similar in the future I suggest we publish a deadline and push the social media streams hard up-until that final deadline, just to get those final last minute-ers (like me). :slight_smile:

Anyway, that aside, having quickly glanced at the results of the survey, I’m really impressed at the quality of the data and how clear some of the messages in there have come out (i.e. there are backends which are clearly dead horses). More on that in a separate thread…

Cheers (its good to be back)!

Sorry. We could have handled that better. I think we will probably do this again in the future, so we'll have an opportunity to be more explicit about these things.
