Topic Survey for PhD project
Edited by Neryn on 27/03/12 22:26 (BST)
My name is Daniel Kardefelt Winther, I'm a PhD student at the Department of Media and Communications, London School of Economics.
For my PhD project I'm doing an online survey, asking questions about internet use across different platforms and how different people engage with online activities. One of the platforms I'm interested in is WoW, and being a long-term player myself I am very interested in how MMORPGs are different from other platforms. There is a tendency within internet research to bundle "internet use" together as a unitary one-dimensional construct, which is something I am actively opposing. This survey will help me to distinguish how different people use the internet in different ways, across different platforms.
If you would be willing to spend 10-15 minutes completing a survey asking mostly questions about your engagement with WoW, some about general internet use, and some about yourself, please follow the link below. I would be grateful if you could spread this to friends (or enemies) who also play WoW, as I am confined to the Tech and Science forum due to regulations and the Code of Conduct.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Oh wow, this was one depressive survey.
"I sometimes stay on my character without doing anything else than jumping around or running in circles."
- Strongly agree.
"Do you feel restless, moody, depressed, or irritable when attempting to cut down or stop playing World of Warcraft?"
Oh god, I'm addicted. :<
