Hi everyone,

I posted on reddit.com/r/emacs yesterday a proposal to craft and
distribute a survey for Emacs users to better grasp the diversity and
various usages out there. I got some very good feedback but there could
always be more.

The main points that need to be worked out are:
1. the actual questions to be asked
2. the platform to collect responses

Regarding the questions, I have a decent skeleton and a lot of suggestions.

But the for the platform to collect responses, this is where it gets
difficult. Something like a Google survey might the easiest/cheapest to
make and distribute and will work on most devices, but it obviously has
privacy concerns. On the other hand, doing something like self-hosting a
no-JS form is very time consuming. I was also thinking of allowing
responses via email for people who do not want to bother with a survey
link and then manually reconcile responses.

Links to the posts with the tentative questions:

Thank you for reading!
