Features Survey Timetable

Return to survey main page.



There was, originally, a suggestion for a timetable; however; there was also some disagreement about even having a timetable and so we are not using it. Also, at present, only an email to be sent out to the subscribers to www-features is being worked on, with a more general survey of all indymedia centres to happen at some point in the future. The original timetable is still show below in the table.

What to do with responses

Of course, this is more than just an exercise in getting as many people to respond as possible! Once all the responses are back, a small, multilingual working group needs to collate the responses and present them back to the main www-features list in a format that can be agreed upon by the rest of the group. Inevitably, there is likely to be some discussion, but this should still allow for concensus to be reached. If not, well, there is no rush...

About the survey

The idea for this survey came from a discussion on the global-features list looking at how to develop the global site further and to get greater participation from around the world - particularly the non-english speaking world and areas that have been under-represented thus far. Some more detail is given on the main page, Features Survey 2004.
