The thing I have often seen with surveys on forums about new ideas, is that you need to prepare yourself for honest opinions from others.
You usually think your idea is brilliant, however others may question aspects of it, or indeed the whole idea, and you need to be prepared to listen to what they are saying.
Going in with a closed mind and using a survey just to validate the way you think something should be done will often result in failure. If one person responds to your survey with suggestions for improvements or thinks a process is too cumbersome, then there are likely to be others that think the same, especially if the survey is tightly targeted to your intended audience.
So be sure to have some open questions in the survey that allow people to fully express their thoughts and make suggestions for improvements.
