Experience survey

I filled it out!

It is actually nice to see what a Xojo survey looks like. Beyond the ‘one-question’ survey ‘Would you recommand Xojo?’, I’ve never received one. Not that I would have much positive to say (hence feeding the marketing machine), but still.

!!! not by xojo inc ??? somebody hacked the survey ? why?

who made that one?

No need to “hack” anything. If you can read & type its easy to make one that has similar questions
Why ? Because results can be 100% shared
No filtering
And its completely anonymous
No emails
No tracking links

What does it matter ?

because you did ? :slight_smile:

i don’t find it in twitter

Well, if you fill out the survey from Xojo Inc. and they analyze the results, they will act on it.

Change priorities for some cases, have an engineer look on issues and provide help.

If you don’t use this to voice your problems, it may not lead to improvements.

And I’ll ask Dana for results. Maybe a blog post could summarize it.

I didn’t receive the survey, nothing in spam folder and also didn’t receive it on another account I used a long time ago for testing something. Where did the survey originate, maybe I can check my mail server logs to see if it was even attempted.

if you check in twitter for the #xojo tag its in there
latest tweets in that hashtag I think

The Xojo one would have come from Dana at xojo dot com

Hmmm, I definitely get those emails as I got the 2021R2 email on the 22nd, interesting.

PLEASE STOP CALLING THEM ENGINEERS unless they are registered prof engineers in the state of texas or their respective home state (Not sure which one applies since Xojo is based in Tx but the developers are in other states)

This has ACTUAL legal ramifications for them and their staff
I’ll quote the relevant statutes if youd like

It is very good that they do this survey, but it should stay inside and hopefully be acted upon. One can predict beforehand this summary blog post would not reflect the full reality and would be some kind of ad. Perfectly understandable but it doesn’t help anyone. The results of the survey should be reflected in the next releases they make.

Well, if they go through the results, which may take weeks to read all comments, they may change priorities. But we from outside have no idea whether something they do has been on the plan for a long time or just got there changed because a couple of people complained about it.

Christian… I wish I (and others) shared you overwhelming optimism… Because I feel (and I’m supported by history here)… that these surveys (either the offical Xojo one, or even the combination of both of these) will do little (if anything) to change the interia (or lack thereof ). These are published with the sole intent to give the illusion that Xojo in fact cares what it’s customers think… and again, history supports the opinion that they do not.

I’m with you Dave. These are no different than placement ads. Wonder if they are even targeted, where some customers get different questions just to make them feel better. - Hey there’s an idea G will jump to with his savyness for marketing

That was also a suspicion some held
So a few of us compared and it seems we all get the same questions

Sad statement when the suspicion that Xojo would do something like exists

haha, please Christian, I am I no way meaning to be disrespectful, but really, xojo seem to (me) have shown (in my understanding) fuck all interest in anything anyone says.

I use an expletive to impress upon you that I simply believe you are either mistaken in the belief anyone at xojo really takes notice of any input from a user, (whatever their apparent level of brightness in the xojo hierarchy), or you are dramatically misrepresenting what xojo will do in response to this, or any survey.

No one appears to actually know what xojo will do, so unless you are more familiar with the process that WILL happen post survey, it MAY be in everyones interest that statements proclaiming:-
“Well, if you fill out the survey from Xojo Inc. and they analyze the results, they will act on it.
Change priorities for some cases, have an engineer look on issues and provide help.
If you don’t use this to voice your problems, it may not lead to improvements.”

need to be backed up with some sort of factual reasoning.

then:-
“And I’ll ask Dana for results. Maybe a blog post could summarize it.”

you seem to believe Dana will give you honest and accurate results, what makes that the case? sadly not much that comes from xojoverse rings truthful in the majority, again in my own opinion.

but please, offer anything factual that makes any of my statements or supposition incorrect.
I really want to be wrong, I welcome anything that may be sensibly argumentative and can create a conclusion that is seriously in contention to the one here.

please please at least respond to me and argue where you think I am off the mark, I am not interested in a long debate, solely if there’s anything within this message you are actually not in agreement with.

I was distracted by something, didn’t read the opening page and though it was the actual xojo feedback. Ah well, wasted that time putting in huge bug lists that could do with being fixed. Whoever is organizing that stuff (Markus?), PM me the info please, mine’s the one with a huge bug list of comma separated numbers of my tickets, so hardly anonymous. Lucky I didn’t put anything in there I wouldn’t say directly to xojo.
