Survey: how are we doing?


By Adam Bink

The staff here just wants to check in again and see how everyone’s doing, but without a long survey — just a check-in over in the comments. Tell us how we’re doing… what do you like about the content (the blog posts) and what could use improvement? The technical aspects of the site? The writers? Features you’d like to see? Please be as candid as possible and leave a comment. As always, you’re welcome to e-mail a comment in private to prop8trial at couragecampaign dot org as well.

Let us know in the comments, and thanks for reading

    Prop 8 Trail Tracker is a great source of important information for us
    (a binational couple living in Southern California).
    I visit the site almost daily for information that is not covered in the mainstream media.
    Great work!

    Your site is a great resource of current information on Prop 8 and DOMA cases – appreciate your coverage of the court hearings themselves.

    Thanks. Encouragement is always welcome, too.

    I appreciate the site very much – I check it every day. One recommendation: The "Want to Know Where Things Stand with Proposition 8" page needs to be regularly updated. Currently, the last update was June 5, and it still reads that the Prop. 8 supporters have 90 days to file their appeal with the SCOTUS; this occurred some time age (as has the "NO" supporters filing of request for denial of hearing by the SCOTUS).

    Whoops. Thanks for the note. Jacob will update shortly.

    Overall you're doing a great job. The only thing I'd suggest is making the "Quick Hits" section a bit more functional.

    This is my "go to" page for LGBT rights news and information. I come here almost every day. Huge thanks to those who keep it going.

    I check the page every day. It's my goto page for updates on DOMA. My husband and I were married in MA, but live in WNY.

    I'm not that internet savvy so you guys are doing a great service collecting news on all fronts re: marriage equality in one place. I thank you for it!

    Curious about the amount of moderation that occurs. It is rare to see comments that are incindiary or even disagreeable for the most part.

  • 12. Adam Bink  |  August 28, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Uh, we don't have a heavy hand. We have auto-moderation that discourages spam and the like, but I assure you, it's rare to see a warning or ban.

  • 13. Reformed  |  August 29, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    Good to know. I don't miss negative commenters and provocateurs at all, but thought it strange that we don't see more. Thanks.

  • 14. Rich  |  August 28, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Reformed, I have thought the same thing in the past but, in truth, I believe that the usual NOM type posters are not at all interested in reasoned, legal debate or, for that matter, anything to do with the judicial course underway across the country in support of marriage equality. They would much rather focus on anomalies throughout society and hope that some obscure and perceived anti-Christian action is "enough said". They simply can't rise to the level of discourse as offed on this site.

    You are doing valuable work in keeping us informed about the lawsuits and other progress on the marriage equality front. Your blogs are invariably interesting and informative. In addition, you attract some excellent commenters. I try to check the Prop8TrialTracker at least every other day or so.

  • 16. Russ Zellers  |  August 28, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Great site. I use it regularly. Love getting the informational e-mails. Good job! Keep it up!

  • 17. Adam Bink  |  August 28, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Thanks for the notes, everyone. Keep them coming. We have a to-do list we'll update everyone on.

  • 18. Michael  |  August 28, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Excellent job overall. This is my top news source for what's happening in the LGBT world. I'm in a same-sex binational relationship so DOMA is having a major impact on my life. This is the one place I can go to stay updated. The one thing I'd like to see more of is an analysis on what the cases mean, what the implications are, how they affect timing etc. Reporting on the cases is super helpful, but we can all use some expert analysis. Thanks for the great work!

    I check the updates and read your site everyday. I especially appreciate the legal transcripts. Keep up the great work.
