Using qualifying questions to create a semi-walled garden?

Working on a marketing site for a consumer electronics service.

accuracy by postal code (zip code).

Marketing is pushing for a qualifying question up front that will

Long / Large forms


I'm looking for examples of very long forms, or forms for gathering
lots of data. Forms that have multiple questions (20+) for gathering
lots of long answers (150 words +).

I'm thinking these would be like Resume Builders, Grant
Applications, Business Plans...

Anyone seen or worked on something like this?



Chris McLay.

IxD Terms Wiki (was Terms Every IxD Should Know
