Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is this for real?

I tried taking it but I found it wasn't very well thought out.. The very first question just assumes I work in a company. I bet a considerable percentage of us are students, do this for a hobby, are unemployed or are self employed. Assuming that every single person that takes the survey works for a company is ridiculous. – Andreas Bonini Jan 23 '10 at 19:35
It is, however, absolutely typical for this kind of survey. I guess the idea is for the ad network to be able to boast “30% of our users make purchasing decisions for companies of 500 employees!” which sounds great to advertisers. They don't want the students and one-man-banders messing up those stats! – bobince Jan 24 '10 at 13:49
Oh, just to be clear, I didn’t mean the question as a complaint — I just wasn’t entirely sure the survey was actually affiliated with Stack Overflow, as I hadn’t heard anything about a survey, and it seemed a little odd to link to the survey from an advert. – Paul D. Waite Feb 2 '10 at 19:34

Yes, it's something Alex / Inedo did, and they are our official advertising partners.
