I was just wondering about the survey that popped up when I logged on today. I completed it, then got to the City News. Did anyone else complete this survey? It never popped up before, and there is (as far as I know) no thread that speaks about it. Not even from Ben. Of course I had the choice to skip it, but I decided not to. Does this provide Ben with some information from detectives? Is he going to improve the game, or just keep a fact-file on some of the questions answered?

Still, I'm not sure if the survey is brand new, or an old thing that people have completed months ago. Wouldn't there be a thread somewhere? Anyway, I was just wondering...

Alright, since you asked. Here are some of the results from the first week of the demographics survey:

1) Country: More than 50 different countries were represented in the survey, most of which had less than 1% of the users. The countries with 1% or more were:
40% - United States
9% - United Kingdom
7% - Canada
6% - Australia
5% - no answer
3% - Taiwan
3% - India
2% - Singapore
2% - Malaysia
1% - Brazil
1% - Phillipines
1% - Belgium
1% - Romania

2) Language - Not much surprise here. Over 80% of the respondents said English was their first language. No other language accounted for more than 5%. The only other languages with more than 1% were:
* Chinese (the survey didn't differentiate between Cantonese or Mandrin)
* Portuguese
* Dutch

3) Gender: This was about what I expected. 55% female and 45% male. The interesting part is that, if you just look at subscribers, the ratio goes up to 65% female, and 35% male. So, women are more likely to subscribe.

4) Age:
* 41% - 21-30 years
* 33% - 13-20 years
* 16% - 31-40 years (including me)
* 5% - 41-50 years
* 3% - under 13
* 1.5% - 51-60 years
* .5% - over 60

5) Connection Speed: This surprised me a little. I was expecting a few more dialup players, but most folks are high speed.
* 60% - Modem or DSL
* 25% - LAN/T1 or faster
* 11% - 56.6kbps or accelerated dialup
* 4% - 28.8 or slower

6) Hours online per day: This one could mean different things, depending on how you interpreted the question. For instance, I'm online whenever I'm at work, so it averages to well over 5 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, if I was just counting personal time online, it would probably be more like 1.5 hours a day. Anyway:
* 25% - More than five hours
* 24% - One to two hours
* 22% - three to five hours
* 6% - less than 1 hour a day

7) Other Online games:
* 34% - two or three other games
* 34% - Just sleuth
* 16% - one other game
* 16% - hardcore (more than 3 other games)

8) Mystery Novels:
* 26% - Mystery Nut (more than 4 a year)
* 21% - One or two a year
* 19% - Two to four a year
* 17% - Don't read them
* 16% - yes, but less than one a year

Thank you Ben! The stats are interesting. I hope another survey pops up sooner or later!

Considering that women are the target market. We should go from a black ground to pink, and lots of flowers and stuff. :) :) :)

At the least the ads for non subbed detectives should not be Paris Hilton and Anna Kournikova. But some hot beefie men. lol

Agreed cfm!

However... That neon pink flashing sign that says, "ONLY SUBSCRIBERS CAN JOIN AGENCIES" still would be nice... :)
