http://www.ukclimbing.com/general/survey.html

To make UKC better in terms of content and a greater service to you, we need to sell advertising. We have invested thousands of pounds in UKC over the last eight years developing the photo galleries, the forums, paying for articles and gathering news.

This readership survey will help us find out more about those who visit UKC and develop a media planner for advertisers. By helping advertisers display products and services that you are interested in we will be able to make UKC even better.

Importantly we also need to know what you think about UKC and how you think it can be made better. This survey has a section where you can tell us what you think about UKC and what you want to see. We listen very carefully to what you say and appreciate all constructive criticism & advice and will act on it.

This readership survey is completely anonymous. Just fill in the form and hit submit, it's all done online and no reference of your IP address, user profile or email address will be recorded.

Complete this survey and you'll have the chance to win a FREE UKC T-shirt.
There are 100 shirts up for grabs. If you're a winner, click the T-shirt link after the survey to fill in your delivery details.

Thanks!

E6. How do you rate UKC's articles?

I have read a couple so could not comment on the quallity. You have to comment though in the survey, so a 3. No option of not read any/many.

That's quite enough young man. As you know everyone's a top roper Marc....that's a given, whether they admit it or not.

You trying to top rope this thread?

From the bottom of the survey form page:

"If you are a winner of one of our 100 UKC T-shirts, you'll be given a T-shirt link after clicking the 'Submit survey' button above. If you want the T-shirt, you can then fill in your delivery details - we won't record this with your survey - it's just for posting out the T-shirt."

In reply to Nick Smith - UKC: Thanks Nick ! I couldn't find your survey at the time - either on the forums / opening page. [don't know what that says about its positioning or me!]

I since found your link on the opening post here - having completed it, like another poster [above], I note I haven't
won a T-shirt either! TT

you could always just forge the t-shirt aswell (fruit of loom with UKC written on with marker pen) as sure no-one will know what they look like!

what do they look like?

<gasp> you and I are living parallel lives! I, too, wrote a long reply about not having avatars. And I, too, won a teeshirt.

Perhaps there is a link there, somewhere?!

There must be - I said the same thing and got one as well!

In reply to JayH: :-) The competition is weighted to reward those people that provide the most insight... the backend is a series of cross linked databases supprted by an expert system of ten thousand flexible rules bases, this has been evolved over half a million iterations using realtime data from biologoical models. As your form is submitted a grid of 20 nodes across 5 time zones processes all the provided data, there is a cross check process that then defines the value of your contribution. Only then do you win a tee shirt. Or it could be random.

>>Why can't we use only capitals?

'Cos a post in ALL CAPS is usually considered to be shouting . . . annoying if people think they're being shouted at because some gimboid's too dense to turn caps lock off!
Besides, there's a way round it if you want to do it intentionally - as demonstrated above. ::o)

I filled this in and had to say I lived in Central South England as there wasn't any option for The Midlands, and I thought this was probably closest. Just cos there's no crags in the Midlands... :-p

please forward any undelivered t-shirts to me, if that's okay. actually, just the one would suffice.

In reply to marie: Wearing a UKC T-shirt is as 'hip' as wearing a Burberry cap and tracksuit. So common...tut tut

(Probably all XL anyway)
In reply to those who haven't got their T-shirts yet:

We actually ended up giving away more T-shirts than we had in stock so a few more have had to be printed. These are been done today and will be sent out later this week.

I can't confirm this but I do know that we had to have some more printed since the response to the survey was so good. I also know that Andy, who is sorting it all out, is away on holiday this week.

Please have a little patience, you will get them in the end.
