Dear AMSAT community members,

This is a reminder email for my Security Survey. So far about 25 participants have completed the survey, and if you have, I am very

grateful. I would ideally want about 100-200 respondents, but I have had about ~50 participants on the previous surveys. If I could get another 15-25 participants that would be great. At present I plan to close the survey next Monday.

I was informed that the Pro, Con, Neutral question is difficult to take because of how Qualtrics has implemented the question and because I added definitions to the terms that take up more space. Unfortunately, I cannot change that for this survey. I have similar question types on the remaining two surveys and I have switched to a mouse hover for displaying the definitions. I will also include them in a pdf for those taking the survey on a touch based device. My apologies. I show about 16 partially complete surveys, if that is all of the survey you planned to take then that is fine, if want to finish it you can by visiting the link with the same browser, as long as you have not cleared you cookies you should be able to resume. Thanks.

There is a chance to win some gift cards. Please see below for more information and the link to take the survey. The survey should only take about 10 minutes. Thanks.

Please note that the link is anonymous, so you are getting this reminder even if you have already taken the survey. I would like to thank everyone that has participated thus far, I really appreciate it, I know it is an inconvenience and that everyone is really busy.

The second part of the survey has background questions that will give context to your answers. Try to fill the background out the same way if you take more than one of the surveys.

You can you use the link below to access the Security Survey.


Answer as many of the questions as you want and as much of each question as you want, partial surveys may still be very helpful. At the end of this survey, you will be redirected to a webpage that asks for an email address. You must enter a valid email address to be considered for survey drawings or the overall survey set drawing.

We are currently on the 4th survey, Security.

You have a chance at receiving a gift card for participating in this survey as well as a chance at receiving a gift card for your overall participation in the entire survey set. There will be 2 winners of $25 gift cards for each survey and 2 winners of $200 gift cards for the survey set.

The surveys are as follows and will be distributed in the following order: (participate as you see fit)

Core Concepts

Open Systems Architecture and Modularity

Security  <========= We are here =========

Reuse, Interoperability, Portability, Code Complexity
