This survey represents the first part of our long awaited Longitudinal Fan Survey Project. This ongoing (3-4 year long) project will help us to answer a number of questions that Bronies and others ask us about the fandom. In particular questions about how the fandom is changing over time and whether the fandom is gaining or losing members.
In order to answer these questions we need to follow a large group of Bronies and ask them regularly (every 3-4 months) to answer a few questions about their level of interest in the Brony fandom.
THIS IS THE FIRST SURVEY AND IT IS LONG, BUT WE PROMISE THAT OTHERS WILL BE MUCH SHORTER. WE NEED THE INFORMATION ON THIS SURVEY TO CORRELATE WITH QUESTIONS TO FOLLOW ON SUBSEQUENT SURVEYS.
First you need to create your I.D. Code. You will use the code on this and subsequent surveys. The code allows us to keep your data together as you take the future brief surveys.
CREATING YOUR I.D. CODE. THIS USES YOUR FIRST, MIDDLE AND LAST INITIAL FOLLOWED BY YOUR DATE OF BIRTH. IF YOU HAVE NO MIDDLE NAME USE THE NUMBER 0. IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE MIDDLE NAME USE THE FIRST LETTER OF YOUR FIRST MIDDLE NAME. USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS FOR THE ITITIALS. DATE OF BIRTH SHOULD BE EXPRESSED MMDDYYYY. THUS, IF BILLY BOB SMITH WAS BORN ON JANUARY 1, 2001, HIS CODE WOULD BE BBS01012001 JOHN JONES WOULD ENTER J0J01012001
