I have five of these set up as standard two separate discs but only get one vote. 
So, who is asking and why?

So, who is asking and why?  

(Just asking . . )

The "who" is a fellow DNS owner and contributing member of this forum. The "why" is several-fold. First and foremost, these polls were added to provide some levity and opportunity for participation among the D-Link member community (there will be more polls to follow). Secondly, as one of the members who routinely provides support across multiple DNS models in this forum, I thought it would be interesting (for the community as a whole) to see how we are collectively using our NAS. When the polls for the different DNS product lines ends, I'll post the cumulative results. ???

If anyone has any thoughts for future polls, please post your ideas. :)

If anyone has any thoughts for future polls, please post your ideas.

If I was trying to learn about the user community, I would ask:
    a.  Number of units installed? In my case, I have three DNS-323s, Primary, secondary and test.
    b.  Number of user work stations supported by OS? (Windows, OS X, all variations of Unix)
    c.  Primary purpose? (backup, file sharing)
    d.  Application servers in use? (FTP, UPnP AV, iTunes, DHCP, Scheduled Download)
    e.  Add-ons in use?
    f.  Percentage of disk units that are AFT and not AFT?
    g.  Three most needed improvements?  (Good luck on establishing the the initial list.)

Thank you for your efforts.

Here's my idea for a future poll:

What FW are you running on your DNS-323?
a) 1.08 or older
b) 1.09 (and never further)
c) 1.09 (after going to 1.10b7 - just to try its features)
d) 1.09 (after going to 1.10b7 - needed AFT drive formatting)
e) 1.10b7 (and staying, but a little annoyed with various bugs)
f) 1.10b7 (and staying ... happy, overall)

Thx,
DH

LOL, Not a bad idea (minus the commentary).  :)

[Oops - made a mistake with 2 option 'd's ... (should be 'a' through 'f')]

Actually, I believe the commentary is invaluable because it gives a sense of how many are trying the Beta, why, and how many stuck with it (and happily or not).

The aim being:
1) to provide more impetous to D-Link to iron out 1.10b7 issues and finalize its release (in case customer satisfaction and brand reputation are anywhere on their wish list)
2) provide a "user experience" barometer for those considering whether the Beta is working OK or what firmware to run overall

If you do create such a poll, I implore you to include multiple options for 1.09 and 1.10b7 with similar commentary (even if it isn't exactly the wording I suggested), in order to fulfil the aim I expressed above.

Thx,
DH
