Thank you for an overwhelming response to our survey. We received over 300 responses from across our many forums and numerous supporters.
Here is the summary of results. We are now analyzing the results and updating our strategic plan to take your input into account.
UPDATE: Here is a PDF of a spreadsheet listing the different responses across various countries/factors. 1 means not important and 5 means very important.
We are also comparing results between forum participants in the U.S., U.K., and New Zealand. Of note is strong support for local government funding in the UK and a strong preference in the U.S. for voluntary donations and independence from government. New Zealand is in the middle. As the Board approves the final strategic plan, we will take this input to heart as we craft our revenue model to cover growing costs for shared Issues Forum hosting and support.
