    I think you need to make this multiple choice. Or, failing that, make the question very specific. For example I use any of CD, DVD, USB stick, hard disk, printed music and streaming, dpending on what I am doing and on who I am doing it for.

    I stick with my wire recorder. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I thought I allowed multiple answers when I set it up.

    My father had a wire recorder in the 50s. I used it at school once. The quality is not that good.

    I tried it again. Multiple worked. Not sure what was going on when I first tried it.

    This is very odd - what Dom you hope the poll will reveal? I can't see it will generate anything useful just a bland "all these". I ticked DAT for example, as I just looked own the shelf. There is a box of old cassettes, so despite never being opened for 20 years, I'm keeping old work on them, and I guess somewhere may even be a few old fashioned LPs. I'm confused?

    Sadly, it won't - because the question is open to interpretation, and because you don't know what question (like Brexit) is actually being asked, people's answers cannot be processed in any meaningful way.

    Cassette - a business sending out thousands of cassettes to elderly blind people, or somebody who produced two cassettes for a friend 20 years ago? Both respond yes.

    DAT - older people like me still have racks of the damn things as an archive, but nobody under 25 is likely to have ever seen one - so this question is age dependent, like cassettes to a degree.

    The killer of course is your words "keep or distribute" two wild different things. 'Keep' simply means look around the house, office, studio and tick a box. 'Distribute' would produce a totally different response - I ticked virtually every box, because I have in my possession all those things - but distribute means USB, CD and DVD, but totally ignores the fact that over 75% of our product now shifts by download - not even on the list.

    The results you produce will be fatally flawed.

    In fairness, designing research questionnaires that produce meaningful data is usually troublesome for school/college/1st and 2nd year degree students. Research is a very complicated subject. You can collect data that is totally useless if you don't ask really good questions.

    this was less for some scientific study and more for interest to see what people answered here in this forum.
