The E-Sylum received high marks from survey respondents. 34 surveys were returned, about 20% of the subscriber base at that time. Features were ranked by respondents on a 1 to
5 scale, with 1 = "great!", 5 = "hate it". The average score was about a 2.
The higher-scoring features were nearly universally liked. The lower-scoring features got mixed marks, and the associated comments indicate that differences are generally due to differing needs of the readers. With favorite features listed first, here are the results - (average score), feature name:
- (1.87) Literature Sale announcements
- (1.97) Asylum Updates
- (1.97) Subscriber Profiles
- (2.03) Research Requests
- (2.03) Bibliography Updates
- (2.05) Featured Web Site
- (2.10) Subscriber Profiles
Some respondents didn't care for the Featured Web site, but many others gave it top grades and raved in their comments. Similarly, some are indifferent to the Subscriber Updates, but others said they enjoy seeing who's coming into the fold. Generally, it seems The E-Sylum ain't broke, so we won't fiddle with it much at this time. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome, though. Thanks to all our survey respondents for taking the time to complete the survey, and thanks to all our contributors for helping to make this work.
