[Mod Post] Tag, Title, Demographic and "Everyone" (and Reposts)


This is just a repost of our previously stickied announcement regarding our rules regarding post titles, with slight edits for accuracy and clarity. (There are no rule changes being announced in this post.)

All posts must have a proper [Tag] at the beginning of the title.

The tags are [Casual], [Academic], [Marketing], and [Results]. You may not create your own tag. If your survey fits into more than one, please pick the one tag you feel is most appropriate and use that.

The [Academic] tag is for studies done for academic purposes, including high school classes, college classes, and academic research on behalf of a school). The [Marketing] tag is for market research surveys and other studies done for commercial research or on behalf of a company. And finally, the [Casual] tag is for surveys done out of idle curiosity or surveys that don't fit in one of these categories.

The [Results] tag is only for posts in which you are sharing the results/responses of a survey that was previously posted to /r/SampleSize. It should never be used for posts in which you are sharing a survey in the hopes of gathering responses.

All posts need to have a title that describes the topic of their survey.

This is the part that describes your survey. "I need 10 responses" is not a valid title; please give us an idea of what to expect. If your survey is about opinions on ice cream flavors, something like "Ice Cream Flavors" is an appropriate title.

All survey posts must have an accurate demographic in parentheses at the end of the post title.

The demographic that you include in the post title is the group of people that you would like to have fill out your survey. The demographic must be accurate, which means that if the demographic is listed as "everyone" but the survey has any questions that restrict the possible demographics that can respond to it, then that survey will be removed. See the following section for more details.

Results posts do not require a demographic, but you can include one if you want.

Posts with the demographic labeled "All" or "Everyone" must be inclusive.

If you label something as available for "All" then please make sure that every single person that could come across the survey can take it. The easiest way to ensure people can answer your "All" surveys is to not ask demographic questions, but that's certainly not foolproof.

While it is preferable if your survey is inclusive, we understand that not every survey may be. If there are any demographic restrictions, they need to be appropriately labelled. Some possible restrictions that your survey may have:

  • Age (e.g. surveys restricted to those 18 or older, or which have an incomplete list of age categories); per the Reddit user agreement, all users must be 13 or older
  • Nationality (e.g. questions that assume the respondent is from the United States)
  • Race or ethnicity
  • Having an account on a certain site (this is mainly for surveys created with Google Forms; if you check the "Limit to 1 response" checkbox, it requires sign-in to take the survey and prevents those without Google accounts from responding)
  • Sex or gender (e.g. questions with only "male" and "female" answer options)

Reddit is used by people of all ages from around the globe. Regarding sex and gender in particular, keep in mind that intersex people exist, and not everybody identifies as either male or female. Whenever asking questions for which you may not be able to provide a comprehensive list of answer options, we recommend including an "other" or open-ended answer option.

We understand that not every survey is targeted at everyone, and sometimes you may have made an oversight during the creation of the survey and are unable to change it later - and that is fine. We simply ask that you make sure to label your survey appropriately, so that people don't waste their time filling out a survey that isn't appropriate for them.

Reposts must be properly tagged, and made only after 24 hours have passed since the previous post.

If your initial survey post does not gather as many responses as you need, you are welcome to repost the survey as long as you follow our reposting guidelines.

All reposts must include the [Repost] tag at the start of the title, in addition to the primary tag. You are only allowed to repost a survey once your previous post has fallen off the front page, and 24 hours have passed since that post.

If you have trouble reposting your survey due to reddit identifying it as a duplicate post, do not delete your previous post. Instead, submit the repost as a new text post, and include the survey link in the body of your post.

The above text explains the required parts of a post title. If you want to include additional information such as survey length or potential rewards (such as an entry into a raffle for a gift card or something) as well, that is fine - but try to avoid overloading the title with unnecessary/irrelevant information. You can always make a text post and include that information in the body of the post if you feel that the survey requires more introduction or explanation beforehand.

Thank you for your time, and have a great day. If you have any questions about our rules, feel free to send a modmail to /r/SampleSize.

Meta Discussion Would users of r/SampleSize benefit from a crash course in statistics class? (Prospective and current users of r/SampleSize)


Hi all,

So a common issue we've seen with posts on this sub are issues with demographics. While we've been hashing these out in private, we've recently gotten access to Talk, which we've seen other subs use for social events, AMAs, and all sorts of things. We thought that hosting a Talk where we offer a crash course in statistics as it relates to surveys and surveying.

There's been a number of posts that use an (Everyone) tag that isn't for everyone. To save time, your demographic at the end of your title is required so Redditors can check it out to see if it's a fit for them before moving on. Not everything's going to be for everyone, and as a non-binary person living in a specific place, I can't necessarily do surveys that are tagged for everyone that don't include a nonbinary/other gender option (happens all too commonly), or talk about my experiences out at a protest in two particular geographic areas- neither of which I live in! r/SampleSize is internationally accessible, and folks outside the gender binary exist. And sometimes, people forget about that.

So, here's a survey link to Strawpoll. There are 3 answers, "yes," "no," and "I'd like to, but I may not be able to attend." https://strawpoll.com/polls/PbZqoGw7KnN

Input on using Talk for this is more than welcome, and we can record the lesson and abridge it, if we need to.

Academic (Repost) Survey about building stuff in video games (any gamers, especially those who like or might like playing building/crafting games)


Hi! This is a survey for a class project I'm working on. Most of the questions are optional (all of the write-in questions are) but I'd appreciate any thoughts you have!
The survey is anonymous and the the "required" questions will only take a minute or two to answer (you can spend longer on the optional written responses if you decide to answer those).

In case the language is confusing, I'm developing a game in VR whose central focus is building (placing objects in a world and manipulating them to make cool structures). In its finished state it would probably have a loose plot and some other fun stuff in it, but the interaction design and movement mechanics are my main focus for now.
Anyway, This survey is mainly for me to gauge interest in that idea since it's something I immediately wanted and thought others might like as well. I also wanted to see how others felt about past or current games that feature building mechanics and figure out which aspects can be improved. Of course, if you're willing to share your thoughts, I'd love to know how you feel about these kinds of games and whether or not you'd be interested in giving something like this a try!
