    Survey - A World of Warcraft study of Network Services and User Attitude

    Hi everyone,

    I am a postgraduate student in England and for my final piece of academic work for my degree, I have decided to write about my greatest passion - online gaming - and more specifically WoW. As part of my research, I have constructed a survey which aims to ultimately assess the value (social and financial) of the enormous network market which has been created and developed in parallel to the game over the last 7 years. By network market, I mean the tens of hundreds of websites out there which have been created by individuals and/or companies from and all over the world which serve various purposes (one of which is the awesome MMO-Champion). Some of these websites aim to serve the needs of many (and so provide generic information/services) whereas other websites focus on specific areas or aspects of the game (and so provide more specialised information/services). The game's complex and multi functional nature is the reason WHY this network of complementary services and websites is so large and has been so successful.

    I need your help to make this study as accurate as possible and so I kindly request you take a moment to participate in the following survey.
    When participating, please keep in mind that this survey is ENTIRELY ANONYMOUS and is a SERIOUS piece of academic work and so I urge you to be sincere in your contribution.

    The survey is made up of 15 multiple choice question and should not take more than 5 minutes.

    You can find the survey here:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...WDUwR3ZHYmc6MA

    If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below or send me a PM and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.


    I THANK YOU ALL FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION

    @zyx @Arnorei @Raldazzar - Thank you guys.

    @Arnorei - I think you're right about the time required to complete the survey, though considering not everyone is a fluent English speaker and the description is slightly long, thought being generous was the way to go. Hopefully, people will read your post and feel even more compelled to participate =]

    Also done, hope it helps and Will we be able to see the results when you are finished?
    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    Finished. I was glad to see this taken into a more discrete location. Good luck.

    Done, but you might want to not list different sites in the survey that violate the rules for advertising especially for illegal services and the such.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.
