general survey on the players play Simutrans
« on: November 28, 2008, 06:55:37 PM »
Hello

I think it would be interesting to learn more about the players from Simutrans.

That's why I've created a survey ( Article ).

I was going to do the survey and tried to login with my username and password here but no go.  I need a new login for the site?  I'm a bit pressed for time now but I'll get back to it.

I refreshed three times, no go.  After that I tried to login using this username.  No go.  Maybe I just don't know how to negotiate the page but when it comes up, it shows me the votes and presents a login box on the left.  I didn't see anywhere to vote...

Frank, I'm sorry but I don't speak German.  If there is no rush my son (who can read German) will be home Christmas and I'll get him to help me create a login there.

Roads...Press on the link. Then press on button " deutsches Wiki". Next on link wiki.simutrans-germany.com. Then scroll down to the part where stands "Umfrage zu Simutrans 2008" and press on teilnehmen. The poll is german and english. It worked for me so probably for you too.

We have a reported ratio on this forum of something like 125:1 male:female ratio. But hardly surprising - we don't exclude women, but it's stereotypically more of a male interest...

There's a Brazilian stereotype that says women are very bad at driving. I feel better now. We are not alone. ;D

This explains a lot why our community isn't a mess, low banning rate, stupid questions are rare, high productivity (see forum stats:    
Incorporated Patches and Solved Bug Reports board is the section with the most posts). In younger communities, the General Discussion board (with spam and games) has the most activist of the forum.

And I know: we DO LOVE children. :P

Results of the first week

earnings

Users: 62
Age: 80% older than 20 and younger than 60 years

playing Simutrans:
34% 1 - 3 years
39% 5 - 10 years

time: 62% 4 - 20 hours

And the most interesting result of 3 users say they are omniscient.
My suggestion: these 3 users should maintain the help text and wikis

I think those 3 users are already active members of the community :)

Maybe in another life ;D

No, that must be some other people. Most of my Simutrans knowledge is so old now that I can't even help with many questions here in the forum. I think Frank is the one besides the programmers themselves who has the most complete knowledge about Simutrans. Prissi would be the other one, and the third in the survey was making fun ;)

What do you exactly mean with this Frank?

I miss an entry blog.simutrans.com

you mean we should publish an entry at the blog that redirects to the survey or on the contrary, we must publish a survey like that at the blog. Another posibility would be to comment the results in a blog entry...

But, as far as I've understood, the survey is not closed yet, right? I mean, these would be the preliminary results...

"At first the survey and then the results" says to me "You can publish the survey now, and then later publish the results". :)

Ok, I see. I'll post something soon (in a few minutes... ;D)

EDIT: done. Btw, I've realized that some of the questions have been already included in recent polls at the forum like the map size one.

People are being asked to log in - I can confirm that when I try to open the survey, it asks me to log in (I previously complete it a week or so ago):
