The 2010 UXmatters Reader Survey has closed, but you can view the results.

Thanks to all of the UXmatters readers who have already participated in our fifth annual UXmatters Reader Survey! We appreciate receiving your feedback. But, so far, only 55 of you have participated in the survey. That means, of all the people who have visited our site so far this month, 37,836 haven’t participated.

To help us better understand and serve your needs, we’d really like to hear from more of you. We want to know what you think about UXmatters. Please take advantage of this opportunity to participate in the 2010 UXmatters Reader Survey and contribute your thoughts while you still have the chance. The survey will close on December 1, 2010.

We’d like to know what kinds of content interest you and any thoughts you might have about the future direction of UXmatters. Completing the entire survey takes only about 10 minutes, and you can answer or skip questions as you choose. Thanks again for your participation in our survey!

The 2010 Top 25

In this final installment of our fifth anniversary issue of UXmatters, for the first time we’re announcing the Top 25 articles of the year—that is, the most-read articles during our latest publishing year. Some of these articles go back to the early days of UXmatters, but they’re just as timely today. Others are among the most popular articles we’ve published in the intervening years since we started publication in November 2005. And still others represent the very best articles of 2010. To find out what UXmatters content the most people read between November 1, 2009 and October 31, 2010, check out our 2010 Top 25.
