Hi Marylin,

thanks for offering a helping hand!

Testing Limesurvey is already a great help. Please report all issues at our bugtracker at http://bugs.limesurvey.org and attach sample surveys to your bug report if necessary.

As for the documentation: You are right, like nearly every Open Source project, the documentation could be much better. Since our manual is a wiki, you can easily edit it yourself (don't worry, there are backups of previous revisions created automatically). So if something is not clear or you are missing some information, just add it, you can't do much wrong.

What kind of survey did you create which you want to submit? we can easily add it at any manual page or even add it to the core Limesurvey package at /docs/demosurveys. Maybe you can just send it to this list?

As you might have already noticed, we have just created a new icon set for Limesurvey 2 (http://www.limesurvey.org/de/forum/development/79818-fresh-layout). What do you think about it? Would you be able to help us improving the icons?

Best regards,
Marcel Minke
(Limesurvey Head of Support)

My name is Marilyn Banister.  I am 50 yrs. old.   I live on a mountain in West Virginia.

Before I moved here, I lived and worked in Michigan 45 yrs.


I worked for Electronic Data Systems (EDS) for 10yrs  and on GM accounts for 15yrs.  I have done everything from Help Desk to Project Management.  Back in the day I had my MCSE and CLP in Lotus Notes.

For the past 5 yrs. I have been a Graphic Artist, Website Designer, Photo Restoration, etc.  (Jack of all trades, master of none….smile).



I would love to help out the Limesurvey team in any way I can.  I have a project I needed to do and LS was the only program that had the capability I needed.  I do not have a lot of money and do appreciate the fact that LS is donations.  I would like to show my appreciation by helping out with my time.


I am not a coder…I can read it and understand most of it….I can’t write it from scratch though.


I am proficient in any Adobe software i.e. Dreamweaver, Photoshop, etc.  I am also proficient in any Microsoft Office Software.  I have and do know how to use WAMP and XAMP.  I also have Database experience.


I would like to help by testing LS.  I played around with LS v2 and found many issues.  I am a good bug finder. 


I also had a hard time with the documentation, took much longer to find things than I expected and it not user friendly for someone who doesn’t know coding at all.  I would like to help with that too.


I have created a survey in LS v1.92 which I think would be very helpful and would like to submit and a few bugs/issues I would like to submit from LS v2.  Also I have connected directly to my survey using Excel…so there is no need to download a .cvs file and would like to write instructions for others on how to set that up.


Just letting you know I am willing to help in any way I can.


Take care,
