Not sure, but taking super-long quizzes is the aspect that is the least appealing.

Too many questions! If you do an abbreviated version of this poll, I'd take it.

I think the scale should show like/dislike rather than agree/disagree...

I, for one, enjoyed all the questions! Maybe I'm just weird.

It's absolutely meant to have this crazy size and level of detail, showing that people enjoy this hobby for many and very different reasons.

The simple pattern of rating everything on a scale of 1-5 while following your gut feeling should speed things up.

Again, it just shows how many aspects there are to our hobby. Maybe someone even enjoyed using the poll for a moment of self-reflection.

Yes, 2 minutes with even reconsidering some answers.

I actually found the amount and choice of questions interesting, as you could retrieve more info from the poll, e.g. by sorting modules (collection related, play related, society related, and more for sure) and interpret what's going on inside those categories. Or extracting archetypes.

For example: Did all enjoy the more general "managing collection" as much/as less as "trading away"? The last one I see as a specific part of managing my collection (in size). A case can be made that this ad-hoc example is not great, but I guess you get my idea.

Thanks for the feedback on the time, I calculated 3 seconds per question for reading + voting, which is in line with the numbers you gave me.

Also, thanks to all the voters ! Interesting numbers.
