Template talk:Wmdgs-wikipedia-survey2

I think most of these questions are better for a general Wikimedian survey. Below copied from User:Juan's talk page:

Hi Juan. I was looking at this template, and noticed a number of issues with it (sorry) :). First, you're not really using #switch correctly, so the box and category displays won't work... I started a replacement template at {{Wmdgs-wikipedia-survey2a}}, where you should be able to see the switching language used better. {{Wmdgs-makesurveyquestion-2}} can help you design future questions that have 2 possible answer (I'm trying to catch hold of darkcode to create on that allows any number of answers).

Otherwise, I'm not sure about a few of the actual topics.

  1. "IP/registered" and "number of accounts" might be more for a wikimedia survey rather than just wikipedia. Also maybe use a scaled response (always registered, usually registered, sometimes ..., rarely ..., never registered)
  2. "Home project" is already covered in the general survey
  3. The group of questions on "Why someone made their first edit" could probably be collapsed into one single question.
  4. Language questions should be a different surcey altogether, since this affects how someone approaches all the projects (not just WP).
  5. How someone first discovered wikimedia and their first project are probably better in a general survey of all wikimedians (since it can ask instead just "what was your first project?", "which project did you first edit?", "which project did you first read?")

I'm not really sure what you mean by "left to other project". --SB_Johnny | talk 12:42, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, you are right, that I was not thinking a lot when creating this template. I have just copyed one of yourse and overpasting some data. And now answers to your points:
1) Well, some users, are editing regullary and they are not register (I know this from cs), so I wanted to ask: Are you registered or not? The second part: "scalede responsee" - I should tell you that I dont know what does it mean e.g. "rarely registere"? On Wikiversity we have more accounts on Wikipedia it is not so much common, so you are right that it would be better to leave this answer for future, I would like to also know, why people on wikipedia has more accounts.
2) I thout, each survey is unique. Now I see, I was wrong. But, it is possible that users, will not respond all surveys - then well be missing answers.
3) well, yes.
4) here would be the same reply as for no. 2
5) hmmm.--Juan 20:51, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

So, will we disscuss it or?--Juan 19:26, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
