    Hi Niners,

    Please take the time to answer this poll. We'd like to know who's out there so we can tailor our content accordingly. It's a simple poll rather than a complicated survey. Quick and easy.

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    But is being a student something that is earning a "living"?

    I had a Student option in the original pol, but I forgot to put it back in when I replaced options... So, if you are a full-time student, just select Other and clarify in the post. More work for yours truly, but I made the mistake... I know there are a lot of student Niners. Please identify yourselves!

    If we do not do it "for a living" should we state student?

    I am not a student for a "living" you see.

    the premise worries me a tad...  tailor the content...

    i think i like it untailored..

    for example - the design votes are obviously going to be small... that does not = make a channel (x) for designers...  *although that would be a funny name.. Wink

    9 works cause its suppose to be everything.. also - the beatles revolution 9 and plan 9 from outerspace - help the cool image

    (there was a reason someone picked 9 out of the other numbers -gretsky fan? get smart fan?)

    anyway - 9 is cool.  it should be everything (sum of all parts)
    im still wondering if diluting 9 brand with 10 and 8 was right way to go .. c9 Students forum? c9 enthusisasts(or whatever 10 is) forum?


    * i picture some ..suit going.. "let's get granular with the data - drill down and mine usage scenarios that are inline with our demographic and financial targets better.. "
     
    fire them.  Tongue Out

    If you are a full-time student then you study for a living. That's fine.

    Jamie, don't worry. There is no devious intent here. We just want to know who's out there!

    C9 content will not change. We just cover more, not less...

    Sorry, I tend to ignore the pinned topics. Some of them have been rather long-lived.

    More than one applied to me, but I picked the most relevant thing.  I might do IT 5% of the time, and I write everything from deep systems to client GUI apps.

    You really need a 'bumb' option, other just doesn't cut it.

    I was like: WTF a poll I haven't answered. Cool I thought I had answered all. Usually I'm not paying attention to the poll box because there are so few...

    Charles, It'd be really useful to have a few more options, or possibly have the poll offer checkboxes rather than radio icons (do we still call them that, or am I showing my age?) so we could pick multiple answers. 

    I imagine many who might want to enter ITPro, i.e. those working for small shops as "IT Manager" or "The IT Guy" want to pick :

    • Helpdesk
    • Developer (Systems)
    • Exchange Admin
    • Active Directory Wrangler
    • Cleaner of dirty mouse balls
    • Cat 5e Cable knitter
    • Excel formula debugger
    • Developer (UI)
    • ... and anything else the clueless PHB who employs you thinks should be in your job description...

    Not that I have any unresolved issues from when I used to be "the IT guy" or anything Wink

    I'll respond here, since it's a sticky post and therefore more clicky than a poll.

    Sr. Applications Developer for Verizon Business.  Perhaps you've heard of us Smiley

    I create things most of you will never be able to see.  But I get the bucks; and deep down inside, that's what really counts.

    I work mostly on websites; front-ends and code-behinds.  Basically everything between the user and SQL; my buddy handles things on the other side.

    That'd be me, I run the transaction level between our mainframes and mid-range SQL clusters. I think of it as the Dark Side.

    Also write internal user-friendly applications for indirect interaction with SQL to limit the need for dev staff.
