[thelist] Survey solution -- URLs?

And yet those important, SERIOUS people invest in

Maybe I should call it SeriousSurveys.com. :)  Anyway, if they can't
appreciate the name, then they can kiss my big monkey butt!  (I can say
this, since I own the company...)

By the way, any survey website with my features costs at least 10x
more...and they don't have a cute monkey on each page!

Sorry for the rant,

Looks like a good front end but they limit you on # of
responses, then it could get costly.  How many
responses do you estimate?  And I don't know about
you, but my clients wouldn't really like me using a
service called surveymonkey for their important
survey.  :)

If you want to outsource, I'd have someone like

custom build & host one for you.  Or check out 
cgi-resources.com and maybe locate a script that works
for the client's needs.

If you are fairly good with ASP and a database backend
(even Access for smaller projects) that may be your
best route.  

Looks like it really depends on how complex the survey
is and how many responses you expect.  Also note what
does the collected data look like.  If it's stored in
a database, that survey information can be used over
and over again and reported on in many different ways.
