    Im just curious as everyone seems to be into Areoplanes or at school, but the glourious thing about the internet is that usual stereotypes like age etc dont really matter, HOWEVER..

    Has it ever been done before?
    Were there any shocks, like over 50% of people where single IT professionals?

    yours curiously

    Most people here are <18 so they might be professional college students or something.

    Be quite interesting for someone to make a questionnaire and ask as many people as possible to do it, and then post up the results on here.

    Could be an interesting project to do. I would participate and/or help with the questionaire/census thing.:)

    I dont think you would need loads of questions like the National one we did a few years back. Just basic Q`s like age, location, salary, male/female, smoker/non smoker etc

    is that true? i'd be suprised tbh. i would have though the majority of members would be at least 18 (ie uni students).

    tbh most of the "funny" gits on here would lie and say things like "female/poledancer/£80'000+per year" etc

    or at the very least "exagerate" their job/wages.

    Someone make the thread with all the questions in it. I would do it but it wasn't my idea.

    a website would make more sense. it would save having to compile the results manually.

    It'd probably be a good idea. It would also be good market research for OCUK, they already have <insert no. of forum> members that would be eager to help?

    Is that you volunteering to make a website :p
    I'm sure a don could make a poll or something to give us a general idea of the age and occupation of the general OCUKer.

    Is there not a site created for this sort of thing? like there's Beebo and crap for questionaires. It'd just be easy to see it laid out in pie charts or something, rather than looking through a 15 page thread.

    Id gladly do it either way though

    Its a good idea, I can provide hosting for it.

    Best not to ask to serious things, just Username, age, county, 0.99 = 1, 1 sandwich or 2.....

    That type of thing. :)

    Lighthearted would be best. :p

    I used a website as part of data collection for my final year project that counted the number of responces, ensured they were unique (guessing by IP address, primitive, but better than nothing) and produce graphs etc.

    The only limitation was that it was time limited to either 7 or 14 days (I think) per survey unless you paid for full access.

    I'll have a rummage around and see if I can find the site.
