I just came across Is there any user satisfaction data for other SE sites than Stack Overflow? and I think, most likely, the bleak answer will be: no, there is no official survey data that explicitly covers other sites on this network.
Leading to a crazy (?) idea (somehow resembling something that user Renault inspired in a different place):
- We users could sit together and design a (small) set survey of questions.
- That questionnaire could then be published as a meta question, and users could then "fill out" that questionnaire.
We could start doing this here on MSE. And in case it works, other communities could pick up our questionnaire, and adapt it accordingly, and then run a "local" survey on their individual meta sites.
Two Three questions:
- Would "doing exactly that" be within "on topic"? Or are there legitimate reasons/policies that prevent us from doing it like that?
- If it is allowed, is it a good idea?
- Or would you prefer to try to convince SE Inc. to run "our" survey through "their" channels, as outlined in comments below?
Sure, that wouldn't be the same as a "real" survey: answers are tight to a username, automatic processing/evaluation would be hard. But it would be something under "our" control, and it would enable any community member to look at the raw data.
