Take our survey. Please.

The 2009 survey for people who make websites.

Each year since 2007, we’ve asked you, the members of the web design community, a few dozen questions about your professional life, and compared your answers to those of your colleagues. The data you provide and we analyze is the only significant information about our profession as a profession to be published anywhere, by anyone. So please take the survey for people who make websites. The job you save could be your own.

    This is an invaluable tool for justifying my work. Thank you for doing this year after year! Happy Holidays!

    Thanks, Alexandra. It’s our pleasure. :)

    Seems like this should not happen at Christmastime when everyone is really busy. Perhaps postpone until January next year.

  7. Jeffrey Zeldman said on

    Too busy for a 10-minute questionnaire?

  8. Kevin said on

    I would say that the people who really want to complete the survey will make the time, but people who are less interested in helping might complete it in January would not make the time to do it at Christmastime. Anecdotally.

    Makes sense; the survey will be up through mid-January, so it should not be too big a problem. Thanks for taking time to share and explain your insight. Happy holidays.

    I’ve tried to take the survey four times now, and every time, I get about three or four questions in before it invariably starts timing out after each page submission and I can’t go any further. Just me? Excessive server load? Anti-industry-insight conspiracy?

    Taken for the third year in a row.

    Dear T.J.

    What a frustrating experience! Sorry it happened to you, and thanks so much for letting us know.

    Am unable to duplicate, however. Perhaps it was a temporary problem. (Which doesn’t make it any less of a bad experience for you.)

    Please try again, if you are willing, and please let me know if you continue to experience this issue. Thanks! – jz

    Success — and not a single timeout this time.

    Thanks!
