If you like the idea I submitted for if you were in a cage, we can reap the benefits 50/50, k? It would make the youtube buyout look obsolete.

After 3 times trying to submit it and getting a timeout error I'm giving up for now. Is it possible that this survey doesn't work for Firefox users on Intel macs?

I'd be happy to give it another try as this is one of my fav blogs, but prefer to know the time put into answering (and for a change I really put some time into it too!) doesn't go lost again!

It keeps saying that I can't submit because I haven't filled in all required fields. So does that mean that if I have no opinion on something that I am supposed to give it 1 star? 3 stars? 5 stars?

I just tried it again leaving a few things blank and it worked for me.

Loading, loading, loading

Aaron, did you manage to check on whether it's supposed to work with Firefox? Assuming you're using FF, then how about on macs? Really, who isn't using a mac these days? :)

I filled out the survey early (too early) yesterday morning. As I thought about it through the day, I came to the conclusion that what I really value most from this site is not tools or porjects, but rather the insight and analysis of current events in the search market.

More than reporting on news, you have excellent insight into how this will impact those in the search marketing field. That is what I look for, and that is what find most valuable. So I guess my answer is: Don't do anything that will negatively impact your ability to provide commentary and analysis on the industry.

Thanks Ryan.

Hi worked for me, but I did not try it on a Mac. gulp.

Ah well, we're just that 10% of your readers who will never get to fill it in... bummer. I can't really understand a company like 'xxxsurvey' (can't remember which one it was you used) who can't make their survey system work for 10% of the market. That's a huge chunk of market to give away without trying. At least Google's new forms work on a mac, so 'xxxsurvey' might be in for a rough ride :)
