Big anniversary Jim... Congrats :)

Don't think so Donn - unless you know when people voted... and how long they'd been playing when they voted.
So, for example, if you been playing 4.5 years you'd now been in the next category up, but if 3 years you'd still be in the same.

That may have been 80% of the members when it was launched...

It's nice to do something with a statistic:
Assuming lots of things but I'm an optimist, 40% of members have been playing for less than 2 years.
Now I find that surprising - feels like we're in the middle of an accordion revival.
Maybe it'd be worth a re-run - with lots of encouragement to vote - to confirm or dismiss the notion?

Now that there are a lot more members, is it time to start a new one?
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know..

Just for consideration - this survey has been running for over 6 months, so the the replies are now outdated. Is it worth starting it afresh and asking members to poll again?

Yep, I think it would be interesting. Maybe the response is low now because people realise that it's out of date?

Yes but I did say "assuming a lot" and one assumption was that all members were equally likely to vote - perhaps not justified?
