Planning a MetaFilter survey

Inspired by this post about the XKCD Survey and this comment by The Underwear Monster, I thought it might be fun to do a Big MeFi Survey along the same lines - mostly goofy questions that we can sic our local datawranglers on and see what fun, weird, fascinating things drop out. [more inside]

Research on MetaFilter Reading/Posting

Hey guys! I'm a PhD student in Communications and I'm looking for MeFites who might be interested in a short (10min) survey/interview about, well, MeFi - how you came to it, how you make decisions about what to post and read, what kinds of daily habits you have, and so on. Just head to the link here. More details below - but if you're interested, please complete it BEFORE reading/posting comments on this thread! [more inside]

Master Thesis Survey about MetaFilter

I have been a longtime lurker here on MetaFilter who just recently registered and I thought it would be a fascinating subject to dive into for my master thesis. In order to get a better understanding of user activity on MetaFilter, I created the following survey:

Master Thesis Survey About MetaFilter

As I mention in the introductory text, the survey is completely anonymous and IP addresses will NOT be saved. I hope you take the time to submit your response and help a fellow MeFite out :) [more inside]

2012 MetaFilter Survey & Research Discussion Thread

Hi MeFites! This is the discussion thread for the 2012 MetaFilter Pronunciation Survey, available for 5 days to all logged-in site users. Even if you already took the 2010 survey, it'd be valuable to have you do it again. Additionally, this time around all survey participants will have the option to have a word frequency table of their MetaFilter posting history generated and emailed to them. If you would like to take the 2012 survey, I would ask that you please do so BEFORE you read or participate in the discussion here (as well as before you view the previous MetaTalk thread about the 2010 survey). This is to help ensure that your responses to these survey questions are entirely your own decisions and are not influenced by the opinions of those participating in this thread. If you have already taken the 2012 survey or are not interested in taking the survey but would like to discuss it, please go ahead and do so here. [more inside]

Metafilter is a provider of social support.

Hello everyone. I'm a graduate student at CUNY Hunter School of Social Work; I am writing a paper on online social networking sites as they provide social support and intersect with the social service field. I would like to ask a few questions to get a sense of individual use and to observe the differences and similarities in experiences before I begin my paper. [more inside]

Seeking help with my research of online communities

I am writing a dissertation about online communities, and MetaFilter will serve as the primary focus of my research.

a/s/l/xl?

We're about to order up some MeFi t-shirts and are interested in the size distribution of the potential t-shirt purchasing population of MeFi. I know it's a bit of a personal question but if you've ever bought a shirt off a website and are considering buying one from here, drop into this thread and fill out the form on top, or enter your answer directly at Google Spreadsheets here. I just don't want to get in the position of having too many of any one size on hand. [more inside]

Where to post a request to fill out a survey?

If I want to ask MeFites for help on a friend's survey for her dissertation, where is the proper place to post it, if anywhere is the proper place to post it?

survey popup

what's with this survey thing that pops out at the unsuspecting mefite? (It adds "for research purposes only", but would you trust the claims of a browser pop-up?)

It's MetaFilter Survey Time!

As part of my final paper for a grad class, I wanted to ask the hivemind a few questions. It's just 20 quick questions about MetaFilter and AskMetaFilter, since those are the two most active parts of this community. I had to break it up into two parts since I'm a poor grad student and don't want to drop $20 for one survey: Part One Part Two It's also limited to the first 100 responses, but if even get close to 100 responses I'll be extremely happy. Thanks in advance! [more inside]

I'm asking for your input on the future of the MeFiSwap.

Survey redux... the virtual idea was overwhelmingly shot down, so once again I'm asking for your input on the future of the MeFiSwap. This will be the last survey, from here we'll move forward to start the next swap on May 1, in whichever format is most preferred, so if you have any inclination toward swap participation whatsoever, please weigh in on this one. (And let's hope this stays on the front page of the grey long enough for everyone to know about this. Spread the word.)

Metafilter census

I say we have an official MetaFilter census. It would be interesting to see where MeFites stand in terms of things like Race, Location, Religious Beliefs, etc. It would be entirely voluntary and anonymous of course. Any thoughts on this?

Television watching survey?

As an informal survey of the bizarre demographic which is Metafilter:

Television.

How many hours a day (if any) do you watch and has it increased in the past year? Or declined? I have a sense that there is an undercurrent of rebellion against TV watching, but I'm a longstanding non-TV watcher. Am I off base or not?

MeFi census?

The success of the Political Compass thread a few posts back got me to thinking about an interesting notion: Might it be time for a MeFi census?

MeFi user survey about MeTa topics?

How about a MetaFilter user survey about some of the ideas that have been bandied about in MetaTalk lately: recommending or rating posts, enforced posting delays, giving better posters higher posting frequency, etc.

Is this a violation of privacy?

How do we feel about the real or imagined privacy violations involved in signing up for the google PageRank toolbar system? I find an old discussion here but the privacy issue really isn't discussed in detail. I seek the opinions of the learned.
