We at MNHQ would love to find out a bit more about what people think about our webchats on Mumsnet - what you like and dislike, what you’d like to see improved, etc.
It applies to all webchats: Book Club, politicians, slebs, academics, random people of interest.
Please answer the questions thinking about the most recent webchat thread you’ve looked at. It’s fine if you just lurk - we’d still very much like to know what you think.
Please fill in the survey below and add your details at the end and you'll be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £100 voucher for the store of their choice (from a list) - draw to be done 31 March 2017.

Thank you and good luck!
