Hi Poldaran,

I sent an email to both Kaolian and darqflame but haven't received a reply from either yet. When looking at the forum rules it didn't explicitly state that approval was required before posting, just that an email needed to be sent to forum administrators with verified contact information, academic credentials, and a copy of the survey. Since I haven't received a reply from either of them I assumed that this amendment 1 Posting Surveys mean that I only needed to send an email rather than waiting for approval before posting my survey. If I've misinterpreted this then I sincerely apologise.

Permission or not, the user base here is generally against this type of study and the percentage of participants who give you truthful data is going to be very low. You might find a lot of 80 year olds with weird gaming habits in your results. If they even bother enough to fill it out.

I did the survey. I'm not 80 but on the +side of 50. It didn't even take 10mins. I didn't feel like all those questions about teasing and kid behaviors very applicable as on-line gaming didn't exist in my tween/teens and even twenties.

The forum rules Explicitly state that permission is required prior to posting a survey. In this particular case, the survey appears to be a standard issue "games are bad and cause addiction" crap survey that people submit all the time, and would not be allowed anyways. Please do not post it again.

I don't understand why this is such a heinous request?? It's not like threads are waiting in line to make their was onto the front page of the OOT board.

But, if the guy failed to follow the rules, off um'

I did the survey. My survey-karma is content.

For a while there was this immense bombardment of surveys from the University of ... Utah? Was it Utah? It was one of those states that no living being admits to living in unless they're looking for sympathy or pity. Anyway, it was just a ridiculous amount, something like five or six a day.

There are cattle ranches in parts of New York I'm told are actually parts of New York that aren't the city that everyone thinks of when they say New York. I think they're just parts of Vermont and Pennsylvania that they keep trying to push onto us so they don't have to be responsible for them.

I had to go up to Sullivan County (which is between Albany and NYC) for a conference and there were three others there from that vicinity, and another from Albany. I'm from Long Island. So the three locals were, in a friendly way, making fun of the guy from Albany, saying he was from "upstate." I interrupted and said, "Wait, he's from upstate? Then where are you guys from?" and they said, almost in unison, "Downstate." I then said, "Downstate? Then where am I from?" They all, including the guy from Albany, said "New York!" I thought, but didn't say, "Yeah, that's the way we feel at times also."

That is most certainly the plan. In the meantime, I'll make fun of Jersey anyway.

My favorite topic of mockery is currently this woman, who is running for our vacant senate seat.

I listened to an interview with her in which she said:

-that the Syrian opposition was all Al Qaeda, because her Syrian friend told her so.
-that we need to abolish Medicare/Medicaid, because they're the biggest barrier to the poor getting appropriate healthcare like they used to before.
-that free, volunteer clinics would completely remedy the issue through "trickle down charity" if the gov't stopped meddling... but guaranteed immunity from malpractice lawsuits for all volunteer physicians.

It just goes on and on. Thankfully, she's so frickin' insane that no one will vote for her.
