Hello again Ireland!
Do you have an opinion about the current government? Or maybe you would like a chance to win some gold? Perhaps both? If so, I invite you to take a few minutes to participate in my monthly government performance survey.
This quick and painless survey will give you the opportunity to evaluate the recent performance of:
1) Ireland as a whole
2) The CP
3) All head ministers
Anyone who considers themselves to be an active part of the eIrish community is welcome to take the survey. However only current Irish citizens are allowed to win gold (details below).
In addition to rating government officials, each month I also like to include a unique and fun bonus section. In the last survey, participants were given the opportunity to rank the most desirable traits for a CP candidate. In the current survey, you will have the opportunity to weigh in on the public debate about MrConway.
Because the validity of my surveys are important to me, and because I consider myself to be biased on this particular issue, I will be looking for an outspoken volunteer from the “anti-Conway camp” to help oversee the results of this survey. This must be someone with impeccable integrity that can be trusted to keep all identifying information of survey-takers private. Send me a PM to volunteer.
As always, in order to encourage maximum participation I am offering up to 15 gold in prizes to those who complete this survey. Specifically, winners who complete the survey and elect to be in the raffle will have the opportunity to win:
Runner-ups (5): Two gold each.
Grand prize (1): FIVE GOLD!
Fine print: Although anybody who considers themselves to be an active part of the Irish community are welcome to take the poll, only current Irish citizens are eligible for the raffle. Winners are randomly chosen by assigning each participant a number based on the order they took the survey and then generating random numbers within that range using the random number generator at www.random.org. All winners are publicly recognized in the analysis article unless they PM me and specifically request to remain anonymous.
This month's sponsors:
A very special thanks goes out to both Rikian1776 and Patrick O'leary for helping sponsor this month's survey. Each contributed a generous 5-gold toward this month’s prizes! Because of this, we were able to raise our prize totals this month to 15 gold (versus 10 gold last month).
If you wish to sponsor the August survey, please send me a PM! The more donations we get, the more prize money we can give away and the more respondents we can get!
Rather than using a simple Google Form like I have in some of my past surveys, I currently use a more professional-quality program that I have some real-life experience with called “Qualtrics”. The advantages of this program are a more flexible user interface (I think you will like it), better analytics, and better security and fraud prevention. This program tracks metadata and will not allow more than one response per computer, so multis beware!
Although the program has built-in ways to combat fraud, we still require that you provide a link to your eRepublik profile in the survey in order to verify that you are an Irish citizen. This means that your answers are not technically anonymous. This is of course not ideal for an opinion survey, but in my judgment it is better than leaving the survey open to fraud and abuse. However, you can rest assured that personal identifying information collected in this survey will never be published or shared with anyone besides myself or those few people I trust to help out with analysis.
Thank you for in advance for taking this survey!
PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THIS SURVEY! Just taking the survey is only the first step! The more you shout and share with your friends, the more people will take this survey and the more meaningful the results will be!
