    I have no problems with this site

  2. Bill J says:

    LMAO – my answer.

    “YES, and none of your business!”

    Weird question, I think it should read (based on the follow up question)

    “Do you visit other Hockey/Habs Web sites ?”

    Would likely have gotten better “results”

     

  3. ZepFan2 says:

    Lmao

    Oh the memories.

    At least this trum has some actual trum going on.

    If you leave out all the porn sites, that’ll save some time.  🙂

  6. Timo says:

    I liked the question “what other sites you visit… name”. Do they mean all other other sites? 😉

  7. Timo says:

    Why don’t they just create a facebook page then?

    My favorite question

    What would you do to improve?

    1. 
    Ignore feature.  There has to be a way to not even see a member’s name. 
    That would get rid of a great number of problem members.

    2.  Thumbs up/down feature per post.

    3. 
    More attractive, this site is the worst/boring to look at.  Yet the
    members are the best on the planet and the replies are the most
    informative of any site I visit.

    4.  Don’t care much about stat features.  NHL.com can’t be beat.

    Please just fix the site so that it doesn’t bounce iPads to the mobile site.  It’s a pain in the usability derriere.

    Your survey misses a couple of questions:

    1. I want to spend the next half hour filling out a survey.  YES    NO

    2. I have nothing better to do with my time.  YES   NO

    3. Are you on a laptop so you have to scroll to reach some of the arrows?  YES   NO

    … I tried guys, but gave up. 

    Your survey is going to skew for people who have lots of time, and who like filling out surveys.  Which means you’re missing most of us. 

    The proper way to do this is either to split your survey into pieces and then aggregate the result, or use a shorter survey and then send people a follow up longer survey later with some potential reward or just a lot of thanks.  Studies show that the ‘foot in the door technique’ is powerful when it comes to surveys.  A study I read showed that people are up to 12  times more likely to agree to a bigger commitment having made a smaller one.

    So let me know when youv’e posted that smaller suvey and I’ll be happy to fill it out.

    yes in light of my curiosity ive decided to not try one…

    The stats show  – young females  are more likely to take online surveys as compared to men.

  16. ZepFan2 says:

    Yikes.

    Here, something to chew on…

    Results of compiled surveys are often sold as information to advertisers, corporations. Not saying that’s the case here though.

    The Boone Survey.

    Let’s face it, this is the site for all Habs all the time. Can things be better? Sure, people who hate my comments should have the option of “tuning me out” just as I do to theirs. Otherwise, not much to improve upon, except to say, “More, please.”

  21. Danno says:

    Thanks Kevin. Still wondering about that result though. Could it be because there are many who are using their wive’s, girlfriends or mother’s computer?

    explain other ways mr. orwell

  23. SLONCOLD says:

    no no lol surveys like this take some time  and money to be put togther. doubtful it’s to shut up a few posters lol

  24. ZepFan2 says:

    Well, we’re all bloggers now.

    Wait, doesn’t Boone despise wannabe bloggers…oh noes!

    Certainly seems slanted towards Boone, eh.

    Someone has to pay for Boone’s live blog.

  26. 123456 says:

    agree – after reading the next few questions i think they are implying the “bloggers” are more the professional writers… (as in not you and i)

  27. Kevin Mio says:

    Danno,

    The results Boone posted the other day showing 51% women is not this survey, but the results of data collected in other ways showing that 51% of our readers are female.

    The current survey is for other purposes.

  28. 123456 says:

    OMG anyone else think that entire survey was put together to try to justify the earlier STAT that 51% of HIO readers are female????? ha ha ha

  29. ZepFan2 says:

    J, they don’t care about your porn sites. lol

  30. Bob Dobbs says:

    In the survey it asked if I would be blogging on Habs Inside/Out in the the next year. What is blogging??? I assumed it was commenting (like what I’m doing right now) so I answered accordingly, but it wasn’t clear..

  31. jennifer1984 says:

    i got around the whole ontario thing by selecting “prefer not to answer”

  32. Mr.Hazard says:

    GHOST POST!

  33. Danno says:

    Maybe women have more patience to complete long, involved surveys and thus the 51 per cent result.

  34. 123456 says:

    Honeslty not sure why I am going to post this link – I guess because he touched so many peoples lives and had a positive impact on thousands. Also Gionta is mentioned in the article.

    I had the pleasure to skate with him once, was proud of myself for shutting him down on “most” occasions. It was just a pick-up game and he jumped onto the ice, he thanked us for letting him join us when it was the rest of the guys who wanted to thank him.

    Im sensing shennanigans as well

    damn you boone…

  36. dh says:

    Keep getting dumped when I get to the question about why I was here today.  Seems to be timing out or something.  Is it because I didn’t choose the “Boone’s email …” answer?

  37. Everlasting1 says:

    Once surveyed, the end result is the same. You’re all female. hehe

  39. Danno says:

    Is this a mandatory survey? And do you have a short-form and a long-form? Can I go to jail for not answering?

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  40. fbkj says:

    yes sir and i found the “browse to submit pic prompt” to be rather gauche!

  41. fbkj says:

    “Do you visit any other Web sites?

    Yes, (enter name)”

    :/

  42. otter649 says:

    Survey does not want people from Ontario……

  43. Mike Boone says:

    What, you didn’t get as far as “Would your wife mind dating Mike Boone?”

  44. matmacat says:

    I started… when I noticed I was only at 23% I got discouraged and close the survey.

  45. Danno says:

     

     

    Do you promise to answer as honestly as possible?

    Yes/No

    Are you a liar?

    Yes/No

  46. Lucius says:

    Same deal, Nova Scotia is a no-no. I know the Gazette is a local paper, but nothing’s local online.

    Hopefully just a bug born from everyone you had testing it living in Quebec.

  47. shiram says:

    That thing is long, and somewhat annoying.

    List the websites i visit? too much to list… I really despise those survey, but i i like this place so i completed it.

  48. fbkj says:

    oh and also these two questions, in succesion, annoyed me

    “How did you get to habsinsideout.com?” followed by “How did you first find out about habsinsideout.com?”

    couldnt have consolidated here?

  49. arcosenate says:

    Actually you don’t want to hear from me!

    So I did my own:

    Do you promise to answer as honestly as possible?

    Yes/No

    When was the last time you did a somersault?

    How many rolls did you accomplish?

    Where did you end up?

    How close was the nearest McDonald’s to the spot you ended up?

    Would you like some more sausages?
