This is the (semi-offical) Geek user poll. I’ve run this twice previously, once in October 2008 and then again in February 2010. It isn’t an annual poll, I guess it is running about every 18 months. You can see the 2010 poll HERE and analysis of the answers HERE. Nearly 3000 users responded.

Before running this poll I asked Aldie if he wanted to make any changes and he suggested a couple. I also asked users for feedback in this thread. As a result I amended a number of questions, removed quite a few and added in some others.

The Poll is broken into three sections, so it would be possible not to answer it all in one go. If you make a mistake you can change your answers by clicking "Questions" and changing the answer.

I have no idea what has happened with the question numbers!

I have a fair bit of experience in analysing the results of polls like this for work and have some experience in market research, but I am not a market research professional. I’m also not the site’s official pollster, so if there is a question you’d like to ask the community then feel free to add it to this thread. If you’ve never set up a poll on the site before, all you have to do is click reply and then click the green tick mark. I’d recommend thinking carefully about your question and answers and taking a little time to practice if this is your first poll!

You forgot South Sudan as a main country of residence.

Pop. 8,260,490 according to wikipdia, which is never wrong.

For "Which of the Video Games Platforms do you regularly play games on?" I chose "Other" since iPad wasn't represented. Should I have chosen iPhone?

Good to see this poll again. I enjoyed responding in this one and the previous ones. It will be interesting to see the trends.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

What online gaming site do you regularly use?
There should have been an "other" option.

The one I use most often wasn't on the list:
games.asobrain.com

EDIT: Also, I was unable to rate this site relative to other online gaming sites, in the "rate" question. I would have rated it 3 stars (4 stars for gameplay but docking it 1 star for not letting any new users register for like the past year)

You forgot the excelent "Jeux sur un Plateau" on the online gaming sites poll. That's the only other one (besides the almost perfect Yucata.de) I'd rate a 4...

"The Two Half Squads" was missing from the podcast list (although it might be too specialized, being dedicated to ASL only)

Agree with the "other" option. I don't play on any of those sites, but I play a lot of Dominion on dominion.isotropic.org, and on occasion I play Yomi/Puzzle Strike on www.fantasystrike.com/dev.

The only question I was unable to answer:

Where do you buy your new games?
These days, I buy most of my new games from a retailer who comes to our game group's annual con and several other game group meetings and events throughout the year. When he isn't at our group meetings he's an online retailer, but I never buy from him online.

Video Games as a type of game you enjoy playing is a bit too broad.

Several of the questions I answered "neutral" when I really meant "I don't know" or "not applicable."

The people who stay on this site will likely be voting that the social elements here are all Kumbaya and such.

Deleted account holders would probably have differing opinions, but they're no longer here to vote.

www.boardspace.net is also missing from the list of online gaming sites. I'm pretty sure there are some abstracts that can only be found there.

True, but I'm willing to bet not 1% of the accounts ever created here have been deleted, so I guess the end result would be pretty much the same, even with Mr. Barnes still around.
