Your help in sorting serendipity plugins

Like announced earlier on the serendipity blog, fellow usability expert Joachim Harloff is currently trying to improve the listing of Serendipity Plugins so that they are more accessible to users.

He needs your help to fulfill them. Initially he planned to personally meet with serendipity users, but this proved more complex than initially hoped. Thus he has created a smaller, text-based version of it.

You can download the file at It contains detailed instructions. You can also feel free to personally contact Joachim about any questions you have.

Joachim estimates this questionnaire to take you about 1,5 hours of your time. You could greatly help to improve the serendipity usability, so please participate! Joachim wants to evaluate your responses starting on September the 8th.

I just wanted to let everyone know that office 2007 has issues parsing this document. It only shows 8 pages and I know that there is a ton more information, it is just hidden.

If you convert the document to the latest version there is 51 pages with about 3 options per page.

I also tried to open the document in Open Office Writer and had similar issues.

When trying to open the file in on my mac the images/plugin info is tiny (unreadable).

I would suggest creating an online survey that would work for everyone. I am unable to complete the current survey as I can not successfully open the file. I would like to help, but am unable to. A simple online form would solve all of these issues.

Sorry for the trouble with the word file. I did not know that documents of my office version are no longer compatible with more recent versions and other office programs.

Following Zacs suggestion I have now created an online questionnaire on wwwDOTsoftuseDOTcomSLASHserendipity_sortingSLASH. Since there are 166 screenshots in it and hence VERY long Javascripts calling and submitting the questionnaire needs some patience and some free RAM. I hope this is finally a solution which can be used by any interested users. If not please send me an email soon and describe your problems.
