Great news - thanks for the update. The response is much higher than we would
have expected and that is good. Of the million or so members to get to 3.5% response
is an achievement. Now for the more difficult part analyzing and/or interpreting
it so it all makes sense and can form the basis of planning. Wish you luck with
that - not an easy task at the best of times.

Not sure from my memory whether you can isolate stores from buyers but I think
you can so it will be welcome to see how both sides of the equation have reacted.

I am sure I speak for many in saying we are all looking forward to the results
coming out.

Did anyone notice all the winners had feedback less than 10 and many with zero
feedback?

I'm one of the winners with 0 feedback. The reason being that I just recently
have started using Bricklink, I haven't bought anything yet and I haven't
sold anything. Have mostly checked up part numbers, prices and availabilty of
bricks I used in my first attempt to create a moc. Hope no one is offended because
of it, because I did the survey to help develope the site and didn't have
any expectations of winning.

I’d be interested to know what percent of all Bricklink members have feedback

Also would be interesting to know what percent of the respondents have feedback


It would also be interesting to look at the age of accounts rather than the feedback
count.

Not trying to suggest anything either way but a few possibilities come to mind:
A large percentage of Bricklink members have
People with more feedback are more busy and/or less likely to respond to the
survey (for some reason.)
People created accounts to somehow game the system.

This list is not exhaustive and my guess is the truth is more involved than any
of these possibilities.

Wait, that is ridiculous!

How can half of the winners be members zero feedback members. On the flip to
that, only one winner has been part of the forum since prior to 2018 and that
was a gvloved (0) from 2008. Out of 35,000 in a hat type pick this seems super
fishy.

I tried running that, but my computer told me that April's Fools Day was

Not surprised at that as it's got to look at so many factors, had to ask
though as it seems extremely unlikely to me.

Love your computer though, wish mine was so clever.

There could be self-selection bias. As an old-timer (I guess), I don't fill
out surveys because I don't think surveys are useful (not just the ones here
on BL) and I haven't seen any real results of prior surveys. Maybe others
who have been here a long time feel the same way and don't bother.

Same. BL has done little to appease the actual users of this site per years
of surveys and roundtables.

We're still waiting for a new site and seller tools (tools that we already
had, but were lost in the "upgrade").

Well, more than half of the BL members have zero feedback.
Approximately 440,000 out of 829,128 members or 53%.

Oops, sorry, it's the other way around. There are approximately 440,000 out

If anything close to the same percentage of zero feedback members took part in
the actual survey you have to wonder how much influence those results might have
on shaping Bricklink going forward. Part of me considers the valididty of relying
on the results from those that don't actually use the site but on the same
token you could say that just because people ar'nt buying or selling, its
very clear just how many are using Bricklink as a reference source which in itself
I guess is a valid reason to voice an opinion on what they want from the site.
That said when I first stumbled across Bricklink I did'nt bother to register
until I actually wanted to buy and sell and so you do have to wonder what actualy
triggers people to register? I appreicate some may want an account to inventory
their own collection or to discuss Lego on the forum but this alone only covers
a very tiny portion of all those zero feedback users and so I can't help
wonder what is the actual motivation to register? Personally I never register/give
out personal details to any site or any thing unless their are clear benefits
for doing so. Therefore for whatever reason there really must be a hell of a
lot of people out there that just enjoy registering for things?

Either way unless we're looking at a lot of unused duplicate accounts the
survey results must surely steer Lego towards focussing more heavilly towards
the 'Reference Source' aspect of the site as that can be the only thing
a zero feedback user would want from BL?

Seems like a healthy mix of folks from around the world... and if those numbers
are accurate, anyone who filled out the survey had only about a 0.000285% chance
of winning... though, assuming participation was equal, the more surprising statistic
is that there was only 1 winner from all of North America, when that group consists
of just about 42% of all registered members on the site...

10 chances for 35,000 participants = 1/3500 ≈ 0.0002857/1 = 0.02857%

Ten is a very small number to make statistics about.  It’s not a representative
sample of the population of around 830,000.  And the ten are from a population
of 35,000 and we don’t know if it (the sample of 35,000) really represents the
830,000.

Well played; I've never been the best at statistics...

Agreed; without knowing where those ~35,000 are even from, there's no way
to really tell how representative of the site population it truly is... plus,
I hear we Americans are notorious for not bothering with surveys...
