Hello UK-based individuals! My name is Jeff Gerstmann and boy, have I got a deal for you!

...OK, let's cut the crap. It's advertising survey time for those of you based in the United Kingdom. The goal is pretty simple, really: By knowing more about you, the guys we're looking to work with over in the UK will be better equipped to put ads on the site that are, ideally, relevant to your interests. So we've set up a quick set of questions to find out a bit more about you guys. It's simple stuff, really. It's all "how old are you?" and "do you buy games or what?" type stuff. I bet you could fill it out in less than five minutes, provided you leave out all those extra U's, Mr. UK English.

Filling this out, for reals, will actually help us out tremendously. Once a bunch of you respond, we'll be able to send out our UK sales dudes and have them be able to present the Giant Bomb viewers as you really are. But I have to ask... please only fill out the survey if you're from the UK. Skewed results don't help anyone! Also, we know where you live and we'll disallow and disqualify anyone from outside the region. So don't be crazy!

At the end of the survey, you'll notice there's a spot for your email address. That's optional, and we're not going to do anything crazy with the address, but if you provide it we'll enter you into a random drawing for a $10 discount code for the good ol' Whiskey Media Store. Yeah, it's probably weird that we're holding a drawing for USDs for our UK survey, but let's just try not to think about that too hard, cool?

For those of you in the rest of Europe and throughout North America, we'll have more opportunities for survey answering (and potential rewards for doing so) in the coming months.

THIS IS THE TEXT YOU SHOULD CLICK TO GET TO THE UK SURVEY

Thanks, you guys. Or should I say "Cheers, mates?" No, seriously, should I say that? I have no idea. Maybe I should have added that to the survey.

#12 Posted by RobKenno (99 posts) -

Be good if it was posted when it wasn't half two in the morning like! Filled out anyway, also the UK has more accents than nearly anywere so "Cheers mate" doesn't really apply out of London :-P

Oh, scones it is then!

#26 Posted by tourgen (4542 posts) -

highly enjoyed the choice of picture

I pretty much think everyone in the UK is modeled after the dudes on that show. The ones I've met have been pretty close anyway.

#27 Posted by LinuxScouser (90 posts) -

"Cheers, mate" is totally fine by me. I say it all the time. Does it matter that I'm moving to the US soon though?

Yup, I'm just like my forefathers here in Boston, an anti-British rebel, me. I don't want your stupid tea!

#30 Posted by FreakAche (2954 posts) -

Canada is like the American version of the UK, right?

#31 Posted by ShaggE (6555 posts) -

I'm going to fly to every place on Earth EXCEPT the UK, and read this article at every stop. TAKE IT, JEFF! TAKE IIIITTT!

#32 Posted by HB (102 posts) -

Nice one Jeff, "Cheers, mate" is spot on. I'll fill it in because you didn't say guv'nor.

#33 Posted by White (1381 posts) -

Oh my god. Giantbomb UK?!

#34 Posted by Mento (2698 posts) -

Hey, if the money from these ads go towards transatlantic plane tickets for you guys, by all means have at it. I say this as a member who won't actually have to sit through them.
