#833 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Add a random survey feature to the forums

Reported by: samuelsidler's profile samuelsidler Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords: needs-ui


Sometimes, we want to survey a section of our users "randomly" without getting just those who are already active. Posting on the make sites isn't very beneficial. What would be beneficial is a simple banner that goes on top of the support forums saying something along the lines of:

"You've been selected to participate in a very short survey about WordPress. Click here if you're interested or click the x to never see this message again."

The click through would go to the link of our choice (polldaddy). We would want to display this to one out of ever n users and turn it off after n days or responses.

@melchoyce has more thoughts on this and likely on how it could look as well.

  • Resolution set to maybelater
  • Status changed from new to closed

This needs both design, meta (and possibly marketing?) input it seems. Bumping it down the priority list a little as it's not an apparent pressing concern.

The global banner is put in manually, the same can be done here at the time by the meta team. If this should at some point turn into a requirement we can revisit the ticket at that time.

Realistically, adding a temporary banner to any part of the site, with any particular timing or randomness, is easily done through specific custom code made for the purpose. It's not difficult to write said code, and anybody with access to dotorg can probably do it without much trouble.

So, this should be more on an as-needed basis rather than create some specific system to support it, unless it starts happening often enough that such a system is necessary to allow non-dotorg committers to add such a thing.
