Thanks for all the comments! We followed most of your ideas.
We would very much appreciate feedback from a native english speaker.
Also anyone interested to translate this study into another language,
please contact me!
@Bernhard: We are still looking for a way, to get the people contactable
other surveys, but for reasons of anonymity we can't ask for their
adress in the survey itself! We are planning such a function within the
platform in future. For now, they hear about new surveys when they
members of the Facebook- or LinkedIn-Groups. We have removed the
option as it does not seem appropriate atm.
@dror: The „survey review“ mode is not possible at the moment, but as it
is still in development, it would be a good idea to discuss and see if
it is possbile in the future!
Your suggestion about using use cases as examples is good, as it is
abstract and sometimes hard to understand the way it is now. Though I
don't fully understand your two sentences ("to choose a Case format
click Format and get all the alternatives among other formatting
options (Font, Paragraph,
Bullets, etc.)" and "to choose a Case format click Format and then click
to get all the alternatives".) But we have been discussing these
lot - and these dimensions are hard to address! So we are open for any
suggestion here. Generally the options should be as short as possible
while still being understandable :)
We are happy about every comment, so here is the Link again for
would like to have a look at it and give more feedback:
If there are no more comments and noone who wants to translate the
into another language, we will start with the survey about mid / end

What I would like to get most feedback on is the last page.
People that have participated in this survey, should easily be
acquired for further surveys. I think sending them to the
general LO lists page is not a good solution. Facebook,
LinkedIn groups seem to be ok - what else can we offer? What
other ideas do you have?
We already discussed the idea of a dedicated survey announcement
So I'd rather see a phrase like:
"If you are interested in more LibreOffice related survey, helping
us to improve our product, please provide your mail address, so we
can reach you when a new survey is available."
People don't need to know if they will be subscribed to a mailing
they don't ever write a mail to - this list would just be the
way for us to reach them.
Pointing to the project resources (website, design list - "where the
results of the survey will be released and discussed in a few
good, Facebook and LinkedIn too.
But I wouldn't switch to the LibreOffice site while people think
didn't finish the survey.
