/ NEWS: UKC/UKH 2019 Readership Survey is LIVE
Very minor thing, but having just filled it in:
foreign climbing trips - options are never, yearly, 2-4 times a year, ...
- I would have thought lots of folk go abroad climbing but maybe not every year. I'm in that bracket, maybe 3 out of 5 years I go Spain/Tenerife/Mallorca (er, that's Spain then). I'd go more often, but dont earn lots and my wife doesnt climb, so I have to share between climbing and nonclimbing hols abroad - not a bad problem to have!!!
I'm in a similar position. I went with yearly in the end as I do climb abroad, so never would have been less accurate than yearly.
Couldn't see an option to select fact I live in N. Ireland (was only Scotland, Wales, Ireland, England etc)
I believe our Developer was looking into this earlier today, partly as a result of this, and partly because you could - in some strange circumstances - select Awesome Walls Sheffield as your country of residence.
Hopefully this has now been sorted.
The Ireland under the UK heading at the top would be the right choice but I've changed the wording on this to actually say Northern Ireland instead of just Ireland. Sorry for the confusion.
I've filled in the UKH version, and now it won't let me fill in the UKC version because it tells me I've already done it :-/.
Who decides on the list of manufacturers we've bought gear from? Would it be an idea to add a box for people to submit manufacturers so they can be included in future surveys. For example, I know many people have LEDLenser headtorches these days but they're not in the list.
Just completed. Would have liked "prefer not to answer" on some of the personal questions.
Out of interest, will you make the results public or keep it confidential (understand if the latter; market sensitivity etc).
Just wondering, as would be curious to see the results.
> you could - in some strange circumstances - select Awesome Walls Sheffield as your country of residence.
Surely not that strange and fairly accurate for some?
Yeah, it'll take a while to process all the results but we will post something like this from the last survey https://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/surveys/ukc_readership_survey_results-5555
Sorry about that, it does says you can only fill in one survey on the intro.
Good point on the brands. I'll make a note to add an Other entry for next time.
Before I start, is there included any way to opt out of the prizes please?
After you submit the survey there's a contact details page for the prize draw with an "enter draw" option
If you answer enough questions you automatically get entered into the prize draw but consider your message here an opt-out.
The address at the end just makes sure the address on your user account is up to date for the prize send: https://www.ukclimbing.com/user/edit.php#address
A wee point; it hasn't been MCofS for quite while now (Mountaineering Scotland or MScot if you will).
10. Have you ever been on an organised tour or expedition.
I read this as being a commercially organised trips - am I wrong ?
so what about your own expeditions ?
Mat Wright has climbed Serendipity (Font 8B+) at Impossible Roof near Roche Abbey. The problem was first climbed by Dan Varian as a sit start to Mike Adam's Serenity (8B). Mat climbed the stand back in February, which was his first 8B.
