Do you have a link to the aantal RAD Studio survey that points to the beginning? The current link thanks me for computing the survey.
BTW this is the first time I`ve heard about such a survey.

The link I have in there is the link they sent me. Weird.

On the survey page i only see:
"Thanks for completing this survey.
Now create your own—it's free, quick & easy!"
So i guess this was "your" survey link. I thought that the surveys in the past were anonymous?

Yep, I didn't read carefully - the email included this:
"This link is uniquely tied to this survey and your email address. Please do not forward this message."
I'll change the article.

Nick, you should update your wikipedia profile. It seems a bit outdated ;)
Anyway I am with them about removing your entry. If everyone was allowed to put their own kind of stuff into wikipedia it would lose it's use faster than you can say "Flotsam and Jetsam". Some entries on less popular stuff is already questionable even with ton's of people "controlling" it.

Hehe, yeah, that is a bit old.
I'm not 100% that my blog isn't "notable". It certainly is well read in the community. But I did figure they'd take the entry out. I'm not sure that accurate entries about "less popular stuff" is a bad thing. Facts are facts, and I myself don't see harm in accurate accounting of less popular things. But of course, that strikes to the very heart of the differences that cause the discussions.

Err... Are those headsing correct?.... "Awesome xxxx by yyyy of the week"
Shouldn't they be, "Awesome xxxx of the week by yyyy" ?

I haven't heard of this survey either.
No e-mail, and cant find nothing on the Embarcadero website about it.

Yes one of my team members received the survey but I have not received it, I spent a good deal of time searching for a public link. I guess it's by invite only this time.

The invitation mails seem to drop in slowly - got during the last two days: Delphi, C++ Builder and Rad Studio. These three surveys seem to be different although they have some questions in common.

I'd have to agree with the Wikipedian's here. Your blog may be notable within the Delphi community, but that doesn't exactly make it a notable usage of "Flotsam and Jetsam". I'd have done the same thing and I'm very much on the inclusionist side on both Wikipedia and StackOverflow.
As for the invite only survey, I guess that's one way to avoid the blowback from releasing an incomplete product last year.

Don't worry, I'm fine with being removed. I'll have to work harder to get Wikipedia immortality.
3/26/2012 11:26:25 AM #
+1 with Wikipedia.
I understand your point, but your blog is only relevant for a small portion of an already niche community. It will be up to you to keep trying to expand your online fame in other ways.

Just a small correction. You have misspelled my name. It is Prasnikar
3/26/2012 8:13:31 PM #
Oh my, how embarrassing. I have fixed it immediately. I'm very sorry.

Just finished the survey as well.
Very often there is a last question "Any comments on the survey itself?" but not this time.
And I do have comments
==> For anyone still doing the survey: you do not need to answer those "radio button look alike" questions, they are not required.
Any suggestions who I would adress these to?

I'd send them to JT Thomas, the Product Manager.
The views I express here are entirely my own and not necessarily those of any other rational person or organization. However, I strongly recommend that you agree with pretty much everything I say because, well, I'm right. Most of the time. Except when I'm not, in which case, you shouldn't agree with me.
