      of topics?
    2. We could split the survey into 2 (like an A/B test) and randomly

    3. For a selection of people, we could provide the single-topic

      These questions are incredibly granular, especially the “what topics interest you?” one. Can we cluster related topics together so the user isn’t overwhelmed by the options?

    • Alex Sirota 8:43 pm on August 11, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      Agreed. Maybe general categories like
      Design and usability
      Content marketing
      Implementation / Development

      I think at a high level you could organize much of what is covered at wordcamp under those 5 major groups with 2-3 major sub ideas under each.
