Users often have to rely on random Tor developers on Twitter, IRC or other social medias to let us know when there's a censorship happening somewhere and Tor isn't working as it should. And not always it's in perfect English.

So I think we need a platform either in one of these forms:

A) An extension or button in the Launcher Menu and in Tor Browser to report when Tor fails to connect or is slow.

This tool could potentially run some tiny (OONI) tests, but I think a much simpler one to just collect ASNumber and a couple of questions user could answer very quickly. Think a survey like tool.

B) Same thing but in form of a website. But obviously needs some domain-fronting or needs to be hosted on Google forms or github pages or similar.
