Okay, DW, here's the thing. There's been this project that's been bouncing around in my head for a while. See, as a user of Netflix and Goodreads, I LOVE the predictive recommendations that they have, and every now and again I find myself thinking it would be great if a similar thing existed for fanfictions.

The problem is, predictive recommendations are really really hard - there's a reason Netflix was willing to pay a million dollars to someone who could improve theirs. (And that's just getting the raw predictions - something workable for the end user would require a bunch of work that I know nothing about.)

But I can't get this project out of my head, so I thought I'd at least see if the raw data is at all workable. That means I need a bunch of raw data. Friends, that is where you come in. :D? :D?

Because things will work best if I'm able to get a bunch of responses for the same fics, I'm doing a pre-survey to figure out what large fandoms I should ask about (ie, what my audience - that's you - has read in). The link to the pre-survey is here - I'd really appreciate it if you could give me some feedback.

And feel free to pass this around as you like - I know all the cool kids are on Tumblr today, but I, uh, am not. Link will be live at least until next Friday - the next step is frankly going to be a pain in the ass so it'll take at least a weekend to work through.
