I’d love to gather some anonymous aggregate information about all y’all who read CSS-Tricks. In part, to help guide upcoming content. Also just because it’s fun and it will be interesting data for us all to look at.
I’m making most choices required. Sorry if that’s obnoxious, but it’ll make for better data I think.
Fill out my online form.
That camel ride was rough
Required fields make it impossible for me to fill out the form accurately…
Ditto. I mostly read CSS-Tricks by going to the website on a daily basis. I cannot recall the last time I navigated to this website via a Google search query or any form of social media…
And I don’t subscribe to the newsletter or use any RSS… so I cannot answer that question.
Ditto. I am not proffesional web developer, so I do not have anything to mark in first question.
Yep, I visit the site direct too.
Totally my bad there. Didn’t occur to me at the time. I don’t wanna change it now since it would kinda ruin the data, so we’ll just have to keep that in mind when looking at that question.
Ditto. It’s not my job.
I, too, cannot fill out the form.
The required fields would not be a problem if the selection lists included “not applicable”, “none of the above”, and/or “other”. Required fields should always allow any user to answer so thinking outside the expected arena is required. (No pun intended!)
I’m a former developer but like to keep up to date. I follow on Twitter and when something interests me, that’s when I go to read more.
“You play with these things because it’s fun” should have an other/textfield.
Generally more other options would be good.
I agree, I don’t really program for fun.
I agree. Having more ‘other’ fileds would make it easier to provide accurate answers. Not because I don’t have fun in doing my job, but because there are other web related things that are fun to work with which are not in that list.
You MOSTLY read CSS-Tricks..
Why isn’t there a option for using the website?
I’m just checking this site everyday to see if there is anything new.
you beat me to it :-)
You MOSTLY read CSS-Tricks…
how about adding, ‘through visiting the actual website’.
… I always have it up as a tab in my browser and check it out for new articles, daily.
I rode a camel once, at the Bronx Zoo.
But I’ve never been to the desert on a horse with no name.
I also usually read this site by just going to the homepage on a daily basis.
The Bronx zoo is awesome but the camel ride is something of a rip off and rather counter to the ethos of the place.
I’ve been coming here since the early days for the great writing and resources but there is absolutely no overlap between my employment and web design. I can’t meaningfully answer many of the questions.
I’m like drooling each day on new articles from Chris and Since too many new things are from you and from other sites are here
So, i always saying to myself, i will check that later. Maybe you should make checkLater/Savelater/readlater or something like that for articles :P
Oh crap! I just remembered I did ride a camel. Not very far — only a few hundred metres — but it was through the desert. Now it’s too late to go back!
Am I the only one missing textareas instead of the text inputs for “what we want to read about / what we don’t care about” ?
That was the most annoying thing about the survey. I ended up answering those in notepad and copy/pasting the response over.
I managed to reach the maxlength limit :)) I guess I still have to learn to write more concise…
How did you discover me? I always ride camels!
(of course, just kidding)
I’m a dev manager and just do dev for fun these days (and to keep my skills up so I can relate to my devs.) Shows how hard it is to design a good survey!
Well, I filled out the survey. However, I think you should add an option to this question:
Because I simply have the site bookmarked and check it a couple of times a day. Much more convenient than looking it up in Google or on social media.
When you say ‘through the desert’, do you mean through the entire desert?
After filling out the survey, it showed me the results. Is there a link to where I can see those results again? I thought it was interesting that most people visit the site via RSS.
