@Pawoo_support
I am currently running a small Mastodon poll asking on what continent users live. Asia is currently just at 3%. I noticed that Pawoo.net with its 600k users still runs on Mastodon 2.4.0. Does Pawoo.net support polls at all? Do you consider updating to a recent Mastodon version (3.1.2)?

EN: In the poll (above) asking "on which continent Mastodon users live", is just at 1%, but assumingly there are many more users in Africa. Pls boost the poll.

METHODOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS ON REPRESENTATIVENESS

Sample size: 1663 (296 boosts)

Snow-ball sampling: In a decentral network a toot is not global. Boosts expand outreach to other people/instances & local timelines

Starting-point bias: It started from my followers & expanded through boosts. Quicker Europe/America, later Asia/Africa. To reduce bias I asked 11 persons from Asia & 17 from Africa to boost

Potential double-votes by multiple-account-users

Question in 16 languages, answers Engl+emoji

@a_cat With regard to Asia / Australia, I assume that it is a timezone issue. When I posted the question, it was already night in many parts of Asia. Let's see what happens over the next 12 hours.

@a_cat @gerald_leppert the biggest instances are japanese, so it probably reflects whos seen the poll more than the composition of the fedives

In the poll (above) asking "on which continent users live", the current results look strange and non-representative: / is just at 3% (!), although there was a great influx of people from in past months and there is a large community in (mstdn.jp 200k & pawoo.net 600k*).

*Pawoo.net uses Mastodon v2.4.0, which IMHO did not support polls.

here is what I think.

1) Indian user may neglect to participate on the poll

I found them non reactive to posts like, not liking, boosting, commenting etc

2) might be this post not reached massive Indians (non tect)

@gerald_leppert

@noorul Thanks, interesting. Why, do you think, is it like that?

I done role as social media marketer.

for a period, I was seeking answer for why indian users tend not responsibe.

they tend to be active Online, view content but rarely engaging.

also it very depend on the type of content.

recent shifted users from India are left wings and tend to attracted towards politic posts

@gerald_leppert

@gerald_leppert @poebbel @radicalgraffiti @a_cat @IndiasMuslims @tecoholic @noorul @scharada @dsno @munyumunyu @souji

In the case of Japan, if you do not provide a questionnaire in your own language, you will not be able to answer. Certainly the Japanese instance is very large and the momentum has weakened considerably, but it is still active.

@hide104 You are right, this would be better. Mastodon does not support multilingual polls. I added the question in several languages (as far as possible with 500char), including Japanese. The answer categories are unfortunately only in English + emoji.
@poebbel @radicalgraffiti @a_cat @IndiasMuslims @tecoholic @noorul @scharada @dsno @munyumunyu @souji

@noorul Thanks for your idea. If you set up two polls (one in multiple languages and one in Japanese) then it is not really helpful for a "global" question. You'll never know who double-voted. Thus, it is impossible to merge or compare.

By the way, @hide104 has set up a similar poll here mstdn.jp/@hide104/103787411183 asking about the closest ocean in Japanese, English, Spanish and French.

😅😅

this is tricky question for me too.

which ocean near by 🤔

@gerald_leppert @hide104

@gerald_leppert I wouldn't mind the possible double-votes. They are possible now too.

More skewy IMHO is who starts the poll. If your followers are mostly EURopean and boost it to their mostly EUR folks, it's no wonder that EUR sticks out.

Maybe have someone from each continent (or better: each language) post the same poll and merge the results.

That still won't wipe out the skew of cultural differeneces like some tend not to engage etc.

@noorul @hide104

@guido Yes, there certainly is some starting point bias. The poll started from those who follow me and then expanded to others through futher boosts. I noticed that Europe and the Americas were picking up quickly, but not Asia and Africa. To reduce that starting bias, I actively contacted some people from Asia and Africa asking them to boost the poll.

BTW, you mention that double-votes are also now possible. How? Only, if someone has multiple accounts or do I miss something?

@noorul @hide104

@gerald_leppert

Yes, for the double-votes, I was thinking of people with multiple accounts.

@noorul @hide104

@guido @gerald_leppert @noorul

Not a celebrity, so few respond to the questionnaire call. I just repeat the questionnaire often in my native language. There are many or few participants. However, because of the large number of people, we will not recruit for a long time. At most about a day

@guido

I have to think through your idea of multiple polls and merge them later to achieve better representativeness.

Here some comparison for the continents poll. Hide104 was inspired by my poll and posted this similar poll from Japan (as starting point):
mstdn.jp/@hide104/103787411183

Although the starting point was Japan, there is still some high percentage of people close to Atlantic ocean. Quite interesting.

@gerald_leppert But the true question is how many languages you know from this toot.

@gerald_leppert Thank you for using Pawoo.
Updating to the Mastodon version (3.1.2) is currently undecided.
Please send your request to Pawoo Support (@pawoo_support) with the "#Request" tag. The development team will consider and respond at any time. Pawoo is made with an open source service called Mastodon, and there are things that cannot be done by the Pawoo development team alone. Please note.

@Pawoo_support
: Please update pawoo.net to a recent version (currently v.3.1.2). The version 2.4.0 that pawoo.net is using is very outdated and lacks features. For example, pawoo.net users cannot engage in polls and much more.

@Gargron @radicalgraffiti

@gerald_leppert Thank you for your valuable comments. Thank you for using Pawoo to share your opinions and requests with the team and to refer to future development and specification changes.

@andrej Sorry, you are right that I forgot Antarctica. Are you tooting from there?

@gerald_leppert (Un)Fortunately not. But I can imagine some fediversies are actually there.

@gerald_leppert I'm apparently on none of those because none of these emoji have my country in it.

@greatjoe
You must be living in Pitcairn Islands. Are you?

Indeed, the emojis aren't that great. For example, there isn't even a emoji for Europe :earth_europe: . I used the Africa 🌍 emoji (also showing Europe) instead.

@gerald_leppert Iceland. The Americas emoji also doesn't show North America's largest glacier, Greenland.

@gerald_leppert I'm at Asia region. But I'm not on any continent. 🇯🇵Japan is not continental country but is island one, like U.K. lol

@hadsn

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, indeed, in the question I meant "geo-political continent", which is the same which you call "region".

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continen

@bortzmeyer

Haha, there is high demand wrt Antarctica. @andrej has already asked, too. Indeed, I forgot about Antarctica. Are you living there?

According to German Wikipedia, there are currently 1106 people living, mostly researchers and (long-term (?)) tourists. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarkti

@gerald_leppert @bortzmeyer i am keen on it bc I was tempted to go their to one of the stations as a technician once ;)

@gerald_leppert Why do you group Asia and Australia while separating out Europe?

@mewmew Thanks for the question. Mastodon only allows 4 answer categories. Thus, I had to group 2 of the 6 continents (and I had forgotten Antarctica). I assumed that Europe has the largest share of users (but I didn't expect that Africa has just 1%, as of now). That's why I singled out Europe. Btw, I also thought that Asia has a larger share than the Americas.

@gerald_leppert we are Europeans and we are fucked!
Long live to the Fediverse! (As long as we can, of coutse)

@usuarianonim
En quin continent estàs? Europa 🌍

Now also in Catalan!
