Hi Bjoern,

FYI, I just created an EasyHack for the website with the topic "Ask users to
contribute while they are running their download".



This had already been discussed a couple of years ago, I can't seem to find the thread. The reason for not doing this was that we were trying to stay away from the OOo installation routine where people were asked if they would like to create an OOo account. People thought it was too invasive.

I, myself, for marketing purposes, think it would be a great idea, and, yes, it is invasive, but I think people are used to seeing these messages. I am not sure if I would like it at the point of download as at the download process, the user has not shown a commitment to use the software. I would prefer this in the installation routine where the commitment level is higher; it could just be one more step in the installation process (last step).

If we are to ask multiple questions, we should not ask more than 3 questions. Anything more than 3 gets to be too much for people to handle, I have seen this proven in classrooms over and over again in the last 18 years of teaching at either elementary school level or at university summer courses where I taught.

This should really be put up for discussion on the "Discussion list" to see if people have changed their minds from 2 years ago when we left the OOo project.

Good suggestions though.
