Dissertation study

Posted by Soap (3577 posts) -

Hey guys, 
 
As of typing this I'm attempting to write up my dissertation for my final piece of work at university, finishing it will give me a degree in Video Game Design and hopefully a chance at getting my name and games into the hollowed pages of Giant Bomb's database.
 
To finish it however I've had to create a survey about DLC and digital distribution.
 
If anyone on the forum would do me the honour of participating in it I would be forever grateful.
 
Here is the link for those that wish to help. 
 
And remember, to anyone who takes the survey let me know, and i will offically owe you one.

I'm glad you're writing about this.  Best of luck with your career. 
 
Maybe you could come back to this thread when you're done and PM us all a link to the paper or something?

Thanks to those who have taken part so far, I'll post my results as well as report to the site once it's been processed for marking. (Dont want to get accused of plagerism, especially of my own work after all) 
 
The survey is still open for anyone who would still like to take part. Thanks again.

Filled out your survey, duder. Good luck with the dissertation. 
 
EDIT: Goddamnit, didn't realize you'd finished. Five minutes of my life, gone forever.

Shit. Just did the same thing, though it's not entirely finished. Are you already done then soap, or is it still worth completing at this point?

#14 Posted by DuderBattalion (269 posts) -

Hahah .. I didn't notice that this was already closed. Well, I completed it anyway. Good luck in the future Soap, and say hi to Cpt Price :D

Hey, sorry if I sent out a confusing message, it's not closed at all guys, infact the more the merrier, I was just trying to say thanks to those that had already completed it  :P
 
Sorry for the confusion.

#17 Posted by DaemonicGrim (184 posts) -

#18 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

Done. You officially owe me one. Good luck with the dissertation!

Just finished it, good luck with your dissertation mate.

#22 Posted by Scheds (464 posts) -

I completed it, good luck and looking forward to seeing your wiki page here on GB!

#23 Posted by Soap (3577 posts) -

I'd really like to thank all of GB for there help and support with this. Before posting it here I'd been trying to get people to take this for the past month and a half, in that time I got 30 responses. In the 3 hours it's been live on this site my results have shot up to 70.
 
Long live Giant Bomb.

#26 Posted by skidd (460 posts) -

Done, hope it goes well for you!

#27 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

Done. Some of the wording was a tad confusing ("If you have not bought a downloadable game" for example) but I think I answered the questions as intended.
 
I am very curious how this turns out.

#28 Posted by Soap (3577 posts) -

Sorry to bump a 1 month old thread, but as of writting this I am fast approaching the deadline for when this survey will need to be closed. Currently my results sit at 81 replies, if anyone else has any intrest in taking this now would be the time, you would greatly help me out and get to be included in the results (of which I plan to post when it's all over)
 
Thanks in advanced to anyone else to take it and another thanks to those who already did.

QFT. Fight Club is an awesome movie and I'll always take some time out to help a fellow GBer as I know most would return the favor.

Thanks guys for taking the survey, sadly the research that this was apart of has been finished since July. But I still appreciate the sentiment.  
 
For those wondering how it went it helped me to secure a 1st class honours degree, so woot! :D

Hallowed. 
Hollowed would be the act of making something empty.  unless of course you are referring to the intellectual emptiness of the database.

@stinky: thanks for correcting my 10 month old mistake lol 
 
Can this blog just die now? It can even be locked if it will keep it from reappearing.
