The only ones I ever see are political, like Change.org. I would go with the nicest-looking one you can find, given that you’re trying to influence the Rabbit folk. Make sure it has Twitter and ADN tie-in, too. Facebook if you must.

This page has a listing of some low-cost options http://idealware.org/articles/fgt_online_petitions.php. I’m debating if using my CMS would be easier vs. using a service. I don’t need to reinvent the wheel so I’m not looking to spend a lot of time building something from scratch.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Limesurvey is, as its name suggests, primarily a survey tool but should
adapt fairly easily to a petition. It’s free, open source and installable
through Softaculous.

Change.org looks nice but it seems geared towards social issues, though I don’t see anything stating it can’t be used for other stuff. Am I wrong?

Someone put up a Change.org petition urging Adobe to give up their subscription-pricing-only strategy. It garnered thousands of signatures, and predictably didn’t even get a response from Adobe.

I saw the Adobe petition, that’s what got me thinking it might be ok for this use, plus it has Twitter and FB integration.

The other one I found is http://www.ipetitions.com though I don’t se any social network integration. But it is customizable.

Of the two does one stand out as being the better option for this particular use?

I’ve only ever seen Change.org used successfully for political things. It has a strong progressive politics feel to it, no doubt influenced by Our Dear Leader’s “change” sloganry. I can’t say that’s good or bad or indifferent for this use, just that that’s the branding I see in play. I wish there was something more tech-centric or politically neutral out there that was ready to use. I agree, you could build something like this pretty quickly, but the twitter integration is a day’s work all by itself. Best to use somebody else’s if it’s not part of your core business.

Well, I’m not sure how to proceed. If anyone else has some petition service suggestions that are appropriate for the tech./software sector let me know.

Roger, thanks for the suggestion, I’ll take a look at it.

There’s also 38degrees, which is a bit like Change.org:
