I tried following the link you posted in this thread
btw our previous and only survey is still viewable at: [survey.piwik.org]
and it returns a page saying
This survey is no longer available.
Please contact Adrian Speyer ( survey [at] piwik.org ) for further assistance.[/i]
Yes, I’d be absolutely interested to have a look at the surveys results. I’d assume there should be some key information about PIWIKs target audience, so it should be possible to start thinking / feedbacking on the roadmap once that is available.
Another out-of-the-blue thing I have been wondering about:
WHY oh why [fit in anything expressing great bewilderment] are we holding a survey on things that might as well be tracked by using PIWIK?
Since PIWIK regularily needs to correspond with some central server to check for updated versions, why dont you just attach anonymised information about the installation issuing the request?
This could be done quite easily I imagine by attaching some $_GET params to that request, and would lead to much better insight than a survey which is hardly likely to be representative of all zillions of PIWIK users.
Seeing that the whole community is benefitting from tracking and analysing, I dont believe there would be many complaints about such proceedings, as long as the process will not track sensible data like ecommerce revenues and the tracked domains are anonymized. Offer an opt out
There is a ton of not-private info which would be extremely usefull to keep developing the most needed features, and which would also give insight in the different usecases of PIWIK, and I wouldn’t mind you tracking which widgets I use, wether my installation is a low- medium- or high traffic scenario, wether I’m using email reports or not etc etc.
Edit: Just spotted this idea discussed on GitHub, too Good to see there seems to be an issue heading this way
Sorry for the duplicate, it is indeed a bit difficult to keep all open issues at hand…
