The safest way to integrate with membership stuff (i.e. will prevent
spammers, will prevent people from skewing results by entering
information many times) would be:

- have only members be able to fill it in
	easy - just add the forms to the memberdb menu and way of displaying
- only track 'member has entered data'.
  - CREATE TABLE has_entered_survey (survey_id int, member_id int);
	yeah, really that simple. no date or anything. so after the first few,
impossible to track.

- we have code for producing HTML forms that means you'd have both the
enter and view up and done in about an hour (including me telling you
the cool bits of code to use). 

if someone has an hour or so to spare - i'll happily help you.
