it occured to me that following the role call's revelation of how many lurkers we've got, and the fact that we've seen some new members show up in recent weeks, that perhaps a small survey in the introduction forum could be useful. i was thinking just a few questions, mainly the following: 1) How did you learn about our site? 2) What encouraged you to register here? 3) If you normally only lurk, is there anything we could do to encourage you to post more? stuff like that... the first question's the one i'm most interested in, actually, but the others are worth finding out about. any opinions?
