I think our mission for this survey is to try to gauge where our community sits in a couple different areas. its pretty expansive and hard to nail down to be honest.. i think thats because this is the first time we've ever really done something like this in our three years. the gauge we would've used 2 years ago for this kind of thing wouldve been a lot 'smaller' if that makes sense. because of our size now and what we're trying to find out with our 'first contact' with the community, again - its hard to pin down :) basically, lets gauge where the community sits to see what *we* can do better and where to focus this groups collective time and energy. sound ok? .djc.
