Two years in the making

 

For the last two years, information has been coming in from violet wand customers all over the world.  The previous 2010 survey will be two years old and a lot can change in two years time.  I had decided to go with two year time blocks for the surveys because its a mountain of data and anecdotes, plus two years give businesses a chance to even out, or make improvements, new businesses a chance to gain stride or fall behind.

The 2010 survey compiled customer input for the years 2008-2010, and the 2012 survey has been compiling for 2010-2012. With the help of some number crunchers, Ill be posting the 2012 surveys early in 2013.  We have to give the last little bit of chance for December, in case anyone has any last minute input.

In compiling the studies, we throw out any duplicate IPs, (which is why your IP is recorded when you take the surveys) and the top and bottom 5% of reviews to ensure that the results are not padded by ghost accounts.  Your information is protected, and no company will ever see it.  More attention is given to the surveys containing details of purchases that went right (or wrong) and why they did, what your experiences are, what you like and don’t about the toys.  Because we are all about the toys.

If you’ve read my blog in the past, you know I have a great distaste for shenanigans.  Im sure my email box will fill up with hate mail from vendors but these are YOUR reviews and no amount of pressure can change what YOU, the customer, has to say.  I have been asked why I do not allow permanent comments posting.  Because a) we do not want spam here, and b) we don’t want the sock puppets and the ghosts.  We allow NO known violet wand seller or commercial interest to be registered on this site. 

There are, at this moment, 6000+ registered readers on this site.  We sent emails to 1000 random readers to ask them to complete the surveys, in addition to all the voluntary submissions over the past two years.

Who has improved?  What new products are out there?  For 2012, we will have a new section about variety of products and new products.  Who has the largest selection, who has the smallest? Because you work hard for your money and have choices to make.

There is still the month of December if you wish to complete a review survey.  You’ll find it in the Survey Database III, The Current Survey, in the menus at right.  Please take the time to submit your input.  It does count and it does matter.  Thank you.
