fissionchips says... In reply to this comment by Stormsinger: More importantly, you want survey participants willing to register on some unknown site. First, I don't go to bit.ly sites...too risky. Even if I were willing to risk it, I won't give out personal info (i.e. register) for a site unless it there's some value in it for me. A situation like this doesn't seem to require any of -my- personal info, so another fail. Tell your friend that a more transparent survey site might get a higher rate of participation...not that there's much value in a self-selected survey like this anyway. Thanks for the feedback, I should have posted the original link so that sifters could see it was from a credible university. http://www.yourviews.ubc.ca/en/node/1184 In this case, the survey methodology is such that with enough responses, statistically significant data can be extracted.
