Just did that, thanks for the suggestion.

Ah, looks like I forgot about this one, but I was mostly thinking
about organised results (with graphs, etc.), not just about answers
put into an Excel file; I can vaguely remember that there weren't too
many volunteers to do that part of the job (which is understandable).

Aren't we able to get this data without asking this question in the
survey? I was under the impression that we can at least get a
more-or-less correct number of UploadWizard uploads through the
CatScan tool; I know it would also work for the VicunaUploader created
by Yarl; not sure about Commonist and the old upload form.

I think we can use Q14 ("What was the main obstacle, if any, for you
to participate in the competition? If you wish, you can elaborate in
detail.") for that one.

I think it was also suggested by Tamara on Etherpad today, so I guess
the question has some merit (no offence Tamara!), but I am not
entirely convinced we should use it. We already have contact
information to Wikimedia user groups that organised WLM 2010, 2011,
and 2012, and have also received contact information from a lot of
people from countries that did not participate yet through the blog.
