As a member of analytics I would like to enable the following survey on English Wikipedia:
We want to:
run a survey on English Wikipedia on Desktop for x% of the traffic until we receive n responses. (we will specify x and n). The survey will have one question and that is: "Why are you reading this article today?". The question is chosen carefully to address the needs of this first survey. The participant will be provided a free-form text box to enter the reason.
We will do manual categorization of responses after the first survey to identify top level categories that the readers signal as reasons for reading a specific article. This survey is designed with the input from Capt_Swing, Cervisiarius, ellery, and leila.
This is the first survey in a series of surveys. The next one will include the categories identified in the first survey and will use those as labels offered to the participant. That information then will be used to analyze the logs in light of that new information.
