We are running a readers' survey and just need a few dozen more to reach our goal. It only takes a few minutes to complete this confidential online readership survey. Just click here to go to the survey, which is being done for us by the respected GMA Research firm.

Here are threequick reasons to do the survey, in case you need a nudge.

First is that each day we draw from that day's respondents, with the winner getting two free tickets to an upcoming Seattle Arts & Lectures event. The most recent winners are: Patrick Pierce, N.K. Burton, David Breneman, and Rob Kidder.These last days have smaller pools, so your chances are improved.

A second reason is that you hesitant, put-it-off types will help round out our survey pool, balancing out the eager-beaver types who took it in the first few days. Less-frequent readers are likely to have the most helpful responses, guiding us on how to widen Crosscut's appeal.

The third reason is that you really can help us to understand what readers want, value, and don't like about Crosscut. It's critical information to guide our coverage, to pick among new features we are considering, and to help underwriters and donors to understand better the Crosscut audience. This is the third such survey we have taken, this being the most extensive, so it will give us a good sense of trends, loyalty, and changing patterns. Your answers remain confidential and your name will not be used or marketed by others.

Thanks for helping this good cause. Remember, we make local media better by working together in the service of non-commercial journalism in the public interest. Crosscut recently celebrated its fourth anniversary, making us one of the pioneers of "next media" ventures. It's up to all of us to keep up the momentum and maintain high standards. Thanks to all for taking part.
