FIDE Market Research Survey Ends This Weekend

A FIDE survey that began on July 13 closes this weekend. It may be filled out by anyone interested in chess: Click here for the survey. US Chess did not participate in the creation of this survey, but we encourage our members and CLO readers to participate. It takes between 15-20 minutes to complete and the questions range from your chess habits and beliefs about the benefits of chess, to your knowledge of and perception of FIDE and your opinions on cheating in chess. While the survey is anonymous, you must provide your email address should you wish to have a chance to win one of 10 online training sessions with GM Vladimir Kramnik. Here is the press release from FIDE.com: Last April, FIDE signed and agreement with Nielsen Holdings, a world-leading company in the field of information, data and measurement. The aim of this cooperation is that Nielsen provides FIDE with worldwide research of the potential chess market, evaluates the size of the global chess community, and assesses the value of our sponsorship offering. We also want to get to know our community much better, in order to improve FIDE's decision-making. We want to have more insight on what are the demands and wishes of those who are already active FIDE members, and those who may be attracted by our activities. To collect this information, FIDE, in collaboration with Nielsen, has developed the following 60-question survey. It has been designed to take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete, and we would appreciate if you could help us taking part on it. To compensate for your time and effort, we want to give all participants the option of entering a raffle for a two-hour online masterclass with Vladimir Kramnik. Ten lucky winners will have the chance to interact with the former World Champion and learn from this legendary player.

Just completed the questionnaire. Oddly, FIDE did not ask about what rules changes should be considered.
