A Random Survey

May 10, 2013 at 7:12 PM 6 comments

The WordPress daily post today was about how to add forms to your blog, so I thought I’d give it a go. So here is one of the most random and bizarre surveys you might ever be asked.


Annoyingly, I can only do one survey. I tried adding a second, but it just edited the first, so I had to redo it. Some things about the form are annoying, like that you can only write short questions or labels, but not because it won’t let you write long ones, it just doesn’t display right if you do. Also I could not figure out a way to just have some text in there, like to ask the question answered by the check boxes, and I would have preferred that as a thing where you can only pick one of the three as well. It was actually really annoying getting it just right, for such a silly survey, so I hope someone actually does it, please, so my effort wasn’t totally wasted!

Please have fun with it, the sillier the responses the better πŸ™‚ (but play nice).

EDIT: I have had to remove this survey as it kept generating spam. This is intensely annoying, especially as some of it has been very unpleasant. I have taken to simply deleting the notifications of answers to this survey from my email without even looking at them, but today I had about ten and decided it was time to delete it. I only made it in the first place at the urging of WP on their blog, and it has been more a source of trouble than amusement. I would certainly not want to make another. Dear WP, why can’t we have Akismet to remove the spam from forms as well as from posts? It does a very good job.

    I am reading from my phone and don’t see the form. 😦

      😦 I don’t know how to fix that. I’ll have to see if I can find anything on the WP forums.

    That was fun. Can I do it again?

      If you want to πŸ™‚ I’m glad you liked it! Only two people have done it so far 😦

    This was entertaining…I’ve never created a form before. I’m not sure I could do it!

      Cool πŸ™‚ It was not too hard to make the form, though there were some foibles I found. I meant to link to the WP post about how to do it, but it seems I forgot to – typical! I shall have to try and find it and edit my post now…
