Introduction to the Purpose for this Survey.

This survey represents the fourth follow up survey (the Post Season 6 assessment) in our Longitudinal Fan Survey Project. This ongoing project will help us to answer a number of questions that Bronies and others ask us about the fandom.

The survey sections will ask about:

1) Your involvement with the Brony fandom and your sense of the fandom's growth or decline.
2) Your evaluations of Season 6 of MLP:FiM and interest in the upcoming season 7.
3) Your experience of Bullying, Discrimination, and cyber-bullying and how being a Brony impacts on these experiences.
4) Tie up a few loose ends as we finish writing the Brony book based upon the fandom's respose to our surveys.
 
This survey is open to ALL MEMBERS OF THE FANDOM whether you completed any of the earlier surveys or not!
PLEASE ALLOW YOURSELF 30 minutes to complete the survey!

Thank you for your assistance in this project, watch for our panel at BronyCon 2017 in Baltimore and the release of our Brony Book in the fall. Please SHARE this survey with your fellow Bronies.

NOTE: This survey will end (be taken down) at the beginning of Season 7!

* 1. If you completed the First Part of the Longitudinal Study Survey you created an I.D. Code and will be asked to enter it below. If you did not do the first survey (you can still do it - see the website) you will need to first create an 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 follow up 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
