UNOFFICIAL Prince website survey

Hi all,

Following the discussion on the Spreecast the other day, where Dr. Funkenberry was talking about the possibility of another Prince website, I thought it might be worth doing a survey of Prince fans to get an idea of what we actually want on a collective level.

Survey link: https://www.surveymonkey....site_ideas

The survey should only take a few minutes to complete. There are 18 questions and they are all optional. Even if you don't think he should have another website at all, please consider at least answering the first question and, ideally, some of the demographic-type questions near the end, so that we get a reasonable cross-section of the Prince fan community.

I'll leave the survey up for a week and will post findings here after the survey has closed.

Please note that obviously, this survey is COMPLETELY UNOFFICIAL and there's no guarantee that Prince will even hear about it, let alone see the results.

(Obviously, if he wants them though, he's more than welcome to them! biggrin )

That said, I'm hoping that at the very least, the results might help to inform discussions here on the topic - if they actually assist in the planning and design of a website down the track, then all the better.

Feel free to share the link on fb, twitter, other Prince fan sites, etc... so that we get the best coverage possible and get some genuinely meaningful results.

Thanks for your time! rose

Thanks everyone, your support is much appreciated!! heart

We've now been relegated to the "Past, Present, Future sites" forum which, in fairness, is probably where this thread belongs, but I was hoping for another day or two at least of P:M&M level exposure neutral

Nevermind cool We've had over 250 survey responses come in so far, which is brilliant - hopefully there are plenty more fans yet to come out of the woodwork!

I'll keep everyone posted...

So, as of right now, 400 Prince fans have completed my survey. Thank you to everyone who has filled it out, and particularly those who have spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, fan sites and in their signatures here heart

When I constructed the survey, I had hoped that we could get into 4 figures, in order to get more meaningful results, so I'm going to extend the survey by a week and see if there's any way we can at least get to 1000.

I might be dreaming, trying to get that many - and I do apologise to those who have been waiting on the results - but I'd rather give it a bit more time and hopefully get more respondents, than finish it tomorrow and present findings that may not be compelling soley because the survey size is questionable.

If there's somewhere you could share the link where you haven't already (or even if you have!), please consider doing so - apart from boosting the numbers, the more places the link is shared, the better cross-section of fans we get, from all corners of the internet!

Thanks again for your support, and I'll keep everybody posted! rose

Hi all,

Just wanted to give you an update - 121 pages of stats and comments later (seriously), I have got some findings smile

I've written a summary post with the key details and have posted them over at 'TilTheDawn for now.

I have to race off, but tomorrow I will add the question by question analysis and the "About the Survey" sections and then I will post everything here as well in a new thread.

But for those chomping at the bit for the overall results, you can check them out here - http://tilthedawn.org/for...eb-survey/

More soon - I promise!! rose

Thanks so much for putting in the effort to do this, Claire. I hope someone from the purple camp finds your site and makes use of this data.

Yeah, fingers crossed! It was a very interesting exercise, so I'm glad I've done it, regardless of what happens now, but of course, if it were to help bring about the sort of website that the majority of Prince fans clearly want, then all the better.

I've finished putting up all of the results, so for anyone who's interested, you can check it out at the link above, or else in another thread in this forum - http://prince.org/msg/13/393074

Thanks again for everyone's support heart

Man, if Prince doesn't get this information he is really missing a bet.

Great job!
