    Over the holidays, I started thinking about posting a poll on
    FalconChristmas.com to get input from users regarding FPP configuration,
    issues encountered in 2017, and future direction. After thinking about it
    for a little while, it became obvious that a simple poll on the forum
    wasn't going to collect the information we wanted to get from our users.
    The poll idea evolved into a survey which I have created to help us get
    a better handle on the user base and their experience with FPP.

    The survey should only take about 10-15 minutes at the most. It is only
    about 25 questions, a lot of which are dependent on earlier questions, for
    instance, if you don't use BeagleBones to run FPP, the survey won't ask you
    which capes you use on your BeagleBones.

    The majority of our user base is silent. The FPP v1.8 SD install media
    file has been downloaded over 13,000 times, but we only have a few thousand
    users on FalconChristmas.com. There are so many places to get good FPP
    support that we wanted a way to reach out to all users rather than a poll
    requiring you to login to FalconChristmas.com.

    If you are a FPP user, please take the time to complete the survey so that
    we can better know which parts of FPP we should be focusing our development
    efforts on and which features you would like to see added or improved.

    In the nature of FPP being Open Source, the survey is being run using
    LimeSurvey which is Open Source survey software.

    To get to the survey, go to:

    http://fpp.bc2va.org/limesurvey/

    Click on the green box labeled "2018 Falcon Player User Survey". The next
    page will have a Captcha question. The text says "enter the letters you
    see", but it really means "enter the answer to this math problem", so if
    you see "49 + 1 =", enter the answer of "50", don't enter "49 + 1 =" in
    the answer field.

    If you are interrupted, you can return to the survey and it should continue
    where you left off as long as you return using the same web browser. There
    is no login/password, the survey uses cookies to track your position in
    the survey.

    Thanks for your help and thanks for using FPP. The survey will be open
    through the end of January and will close at 11:59PM on Feb 4, 2018.

    Filled out Chris. Took me just under 15 minutes and hopefully it gives you some info to work from.

    Getting into the survey was a slight chore. Had to solve the equation rather than "type it in as shown"

    I should have put that comment more front and center in my post. I don't know why they worded it that way in the software. Maybe I should go find it in the survey code and fix the wording.

    Thanks for doing the survey, all input is welcome. I would rather spend my time on things that are useful to users than coding up some of my off the wall ideas that might not get used for years. :)
