I have to make a comment, on behalf of Nina and myself. I've tried to help Nina with researching her project since I was supposed to know more about the internet than her. I posted this questionnaire on about 11 sites and waited for responses. It seems as if only one response came from the remaining 10 sites. 21 responses have so far come from proz translators and their friends and contacts.
I don't know what the outcome of Nina's research will be. I am doing a research project of my own at the moment. And so far, the results are that THE PROZ COMMUNITY CONSISTS OF SOME REALLY POSITIVE PEOPLE. It's not just about filling in a questionnaire, it's also about the interest everyone has shown and the good will and wishes of success.
It comes with being the member of a COMMUNITY, not just a virtual site of forum. I really appreciate this. And Nina adds her thanks. She'll be closing the questionnaire in the next few hours to begin analyzing the results.
I've already analyzed the results of my own research and I can say here that the conclusion I have come to is that: We are a pretty good bunch of people. I'M PROUD OF US.
Thanks to all.
After all it seems a very interesting topic, and research initiatives are also valuable to the community.
