Original message Please take the 2010 Democratic Underground Member Survey.


The purpose of the survey is to collect some data to help us figure out who our members are, (Lib Nutcases, you don't know already???) and how you feel about Democratic Underground. We want as many people as possible to take it, so we can get a really good sample. We hope that the results help give us some idea of where we go from here. This survey is open to all active DU members who registered before August 20, 2010 (the date when we first announced the survey).

Please be aware that this survey was not drawn up professionally; it is merely a series of questions that the DU Administrators would like answers to.

Your responses to this survey are anonymous. (Ha! If you retards believe that...) Neither your username nor any other personally identifiable information will be saved along with your answers, so the administrators will not be able to figure out how you or any other individual responded to the questions. The usernames of members who have taken the survey are saved separately, to ensure that each member takes the survey only one time.

The survey will be available for two weeks, until 11:59 PM Pacific Time, Thursday October 14, 2010. After that time, no more responses will be accepted.

As much as possible, we want the survey to be "fresh" for each member, and we do not want chatter or spin on the site to influence the way people respond. Therefore, while you are permitted to discuss the survey in this thread, the moderators have been instructed to delete any posts about the survey if they are posted anywhere else. This restriction will be lifted once the survey has been completed in two weeks time.

Thank you for taking the time to take our survey.

...sniff ... sniff ... smells like a trap to me.

Maybe if $kinner makes it smell like it came from of a head shop, they might take the bait.

I read some of the questions, almost seems like a loyalty test before purging people who will not hold the party line.

It's a trap.

The annual DU Tombstone Volunteer Web Form needs your immediate attention.

Attitudes toward Forum Administration and Moderation

IMPORTANT: When answering the following questions, please keep in mind that the ultimate responsibility for how the discussion forum is moderated and administered lies with the DU administrators. The administrators provide the moderators with detailed instructions about how the DU rules should be interpreted, which posts should be removed, and how the forum should be moderated. The actions of the DU moderators should be seen (as much as possible) as reflecting the will of the DU administrators.

The character of a discussion forum often depends on how actively the discussions are moderated. Some people prefer that forums be actively moderated, to try to keep the discussions relatively civil and promote thoughtful interactions between participants. Other people prefer less active moderation, so members have greater freedom to express themselves, even if uncivil or disruptive postings are more common. Which of the following is closest to your opinion?

I believe that Democratic Underground should be more actively moderated than it currently is.
I believe that Democratic Underground should be less actively moderated than it currently is.
I believe the moderating on Democratic Underground is just about right.
Don't know/Other

Overall, do you feel that Democratic Underground bans too many people, not enough people, or an appropriate number?

Too many people
Not enough people
An appropriate number of people
Don't know/Other

Democratic Underground gives members the ability to inform moderators about potential problems by clicking the "Alert" link on any post. When an alert is sent, the moderators always evaluate the post and decide whether to take action. Quite often, however, nobody will alert on posts that violate our rules. Which is closest to your opinion of how these posts should be handled?

If nobody sends an alert on a particular post, it is safe to assume that nobody wants the moderators to get involved. Moderators should evaluate posts and take action ONLY IF a member sends an alert.
A rule violation is a rule violation; it should not matter if someone sends an alert. Moderators should pro-actively search for potential problems, and should take action even if nobody sends an alert.
Don't know/Other

Would you like to be able to hide your posts from other DU members you consider abusive (and similarly let other DU members hide their posts from you)?

Yes
No
Don't know/Other

Has forum moderation that you perceive to be overly active or unfair caused you to participate less on Democratic Underground than you would like?

Yes
No
Don't know/Other

Have uncivil or disruptive DU members caused you to participate less on Democratic Underground than you would like?

Yes
No
Don't know/Other

Have attacks against President Obama or Democrats caused you to participate less on Democratic Underground than you would like?

Yes
No
Don't know/Other

Has hostility toward criticism of President Obama or Democrats caused you to participate less on Democratic Underground than you would like?

Yes
No
Don't know/Other

Should Democratic Underground require that all criticism of President Obama or Democrats be constructive?

Yes
No
Don't know/Other

Should there be any limits on what insults or attacks members can post about President Obama or Democrats on Democratic Underground?

Yes, there should be limits on such insults or attacks.
No, members should be able to post whatever they like about President Obama or Democrats.
Don't know/Other

Currently, Democratic Underground does not permit members to advocate voting against Democrats, or in favor of third-party candidates (except in rare cases). Should members be permitted to support left-of-center third-party candidates on Democratic Underground, even in races where Democrats are running?

Yes
No

I'm not the one with every other post being about gay sex acts. You seem to know a lot of details.

It seems there's a lot of non-sexual things that trigger you to post about gay sex. That's cool though whatever floats your boat buddy,
