Thanks to the 60 Themeforest users who already took the survey.

Since I need many many more participants, it’s time for a little incentive.

If 200 people from this community participate in my survey, I’ll pick two lucky winners (only among those 200) who will get 5 boxes of TimTams each.

This is the Australian chocolate delicacy, that comes with the Envato Elite care package.

As we all know, working your way up to Super Elite is very hard, and even then, you’ll get just 2 little boxes of this delicious chocolate. :-) Taking a 3 minutes survey on the other hand, is very easy, and you have a pretty good chance of winning. :-)

And by the way, you’ll be part of a study, whose results could be interesting for everyone involved with WordPress.

Just enter your Themeforest-Username at the end. The ones who posted in this thread or provided an email-address are already in the competition. Winners will be published in this thread.

Thanks for your support

start survey

Cheers

Hello everyone,

Some time ago, there was a heated discussion in the WordPress community, about open source, GPL and the theme-industry.

Somewhere in the turmoil, the theme-industry was accused of profiting from a free software, without giving much back.

This inspired me to conduct a study about the matter for my master’s thesis, and evaluate the following questions:

  • Does WordPress benefit from the theme-industry as well?
  • Is the growing popularity of WordPress partly a result of the huge variety of themes and plug-ins?
  • Do some people choose WordPress over other systems, because of that?

Just to clarify, the hypothesis is not saying, themes and plug-ins are the only reason, for the popularity of WordPress. There are other factors that play a role, like it’s easiness of use.
And of course, the system architecture encourages extensions in general.

If you find this as interesting as I do, and would like to know the results, please take my survey.
It is directed at WordPress users who build websites professionally, or use WordPress for their own website(s).

Since I need at least 1067 participants, I’d really appreciate if you could take 3 minutes of your time for the questionnaire.

The results (diagrams and raw data), as well as the conclusion will be published and linked back to this thread.

Thanks for your support

See if there is a new tab in your dashboard called ‘hidden’. Soft-rejected items end up there.

Cheers
