I’ve been running the International Social Impact Survey (ISIS) for the last few months, and a week or two back I emailed all the pollsters to tell them that their own personal online data entry form was now ready to accept data. This is quite separate from the public online survey open to everyone, and requires a unique username and password.
I’ve had responses from over half of them, but no response from the others. And yet several of them are regular readers and commenters. So this is a call to truckerlyn, garyk30, messalina, lysistrata, rotherwise, diesel/ratinthecorner, and ladyraj to check their email. Would they please either email me (at cfrankdavis at googlemail.com) or leave a comment either here or on the ISIS discussion forum, so that I can get an idea what their status is.
In addition, there’s a possibility that Furor Teutonicus and Thomas Bell (who both have copies of the survey) may have managed to collect some data. I haven’t emailed these two yet, but if they’re reading this, I’d like to hear from them.
After being enthusiastic for a week or two at the outset, Ladyraj seemed to go missing very early on. I’ve emailed her several times over the past few months, and got no reply. She’s also a Facebook friend, and has been posting up photos of herself. I’ve tried sending messages to her there, but got no response. If she reads this, I’m still hoping to hear from her. If anyone else is in contact with her, perhaps they can find out what happened.
The survey is due to carry on running for the rest of September, and so there’s no hurry to enter questionnaire results right now. But at least one person has been experiencing problems with data entry, so I’d like to hear that people have at least tried it out successfully. I’m a bit concerned that I seem to be (almost) the only person who has managed to enter any data so far.
Anyway, here’s Lana Del Rey’s latest (and greatest) single:
