A test? By whom? For what purpose? Is it sanctioned by LJ? Name and zip code, one way to get info to target people. Not exactly the same but LJ has button to check to see who is currently online. I apologize for being naturally suspicious (life taught lesson) but I respectfully decline until more information is given.

What is the purpose? Over 300 views, around 69 members on line at this time and only a couple of those have actually posted here and 29 total so far. I’m sure there’s something interesting to be discoverd by all this, but I fail to see what it would be. Thanks, but no thanks.

No dkv I knew you would screw it up. The idea is to get a demographic for readers the next few questions will make it all clear zip codes give us a area to determine where people live that belong to LJ. The idea is to get some basic numbers if people don’t reply they simply don’t matter to the demographic some people are paranoid if they wont answer a general question like this they most likely wont participate in online activity at all. The silent majority don’t post here at all the idea is to make things that will encourage participation by region. Also the idea is to see how many of us there really are and how many are gone for good and how many actually participate in this site. This test is all about where I will choose to spend ad dollars in the future if the site has only 34 members that will actually reply to a survey the value of advertising here drops in a big way if I got a few thousand reply’s I would spend thousands here on advertisement here. Which is how this site makes money to stay open If readership has really dropped to such low levels as I fear then I wont waste company money advertising here Even though I feel its the best woodworking forum on the net at this time. If i choose to advertise in Wood Magazine they have over 100 000 readers and the ads will be read by over 1/2 of the readers. If I advertise here 10 percent of the users us an ad blocker and the rest will have to be willing to participate online or they are no good to my venture. I am seeking the numbers of participating members which I fear is a lot less than 40 k.

The reason I am asking for zip codes is to decide where workshops will be held in the future if I choose to advertise here and I have an event I want the event to be centrally located for the actual readers. If I have 90 percent in the mid west our events will be held there if the majority is on the west coast I will have the events there. Once the events grow I will have more but what matters now is that the first events are a success.

Your post makes no sense to me. If your “our company” is you and your Portland partner then just ask Nathan for site analytics. He should be able to give you a far better picture of site traffic then any thread will. Nathan has real numbers, your thread will give you numbers that you need to make very shakey suppositions on and it won’t be easy. In fact, I personnaly wouldn’t spend any money on your results and I’m sure others wouldn’t either. Especially after they asked you to explain how you came to your traffic conclusions. Very unscientific, Dude, very unscientific.

I think DKV is spot on this time. Why not ask Nathan? or Martin? or the owners of the site? I’m sure they can check their Stat counter for their site and give you all that info you need as far as demographics go. Did you use the same approach when researching Wood Magazine to find their 100,000 readers and all their ads will be read by over 50,000 readers? Wow! you got a lot of feed back from their subscribers. I’m not trying to screw up your survey, but I think a lot of people are “paranoid” when asked for their name and zip code with no explanation. I think if you start again, maybe more people will participate.
Thanks, but no thanks

Frankly I know how web stats work and they don’t show activity they only show where you go they don’t show if you participate and Participation is the key for my needs. If someone is either a non participant or a robot those numbers are useless. I am only interested in people that will reply to a post. As I said the zip codes are for future regional events I am planing. If you choose not to take part that is fine but don’t whine when the events are far away from you and you cant attend because the trip will cost too much.

So as not to be seen as someone afraid to respond the fact is I don’t care to respond, darnit I think I just did. Zip codes are no issue, hell half of the LJ’s here show where they are from in their home page.

I just choose not to participate here…darn it.
