Freak not, as an old friend of mine used to say. The survey questions were canned--we didn't write them. We're not going anywhere. And the survey will come down shortly--we just wanted to try and gather info from a broader swath of visitors. You folks, but also drop-ins from searches, people who use the site but don't register, those not inclined to chat.
This survey actually taught me something, by dint of making me think. It asked me "How can we improve Wordnik to better meet your needs", and I was about to reply "Add a thesaurus!", but then I thought "No, wait, I'd better check to see whether Wordnik already has a thesaurus." And wouldn't you know it, it does! I just hadn't spotted it before. (It's under "Related", up top.)
Hah! Saw bilby's comment first on mobile, where the screen wasn't enlarged enough to show the banner. I was about to say, reference surveys in general 'take your survey and statistic it where the sun don't shine 100 times out of 100'.
But it's a wordnik survey, so I can't now can I? It'd be sacrilege bleu. *slinks off to take survey*
