The Final Results from the survey on this Membership Mishap

Hello Everyone! 
Here are the results for the Membership survey that I put out, received more than 250 responses, which I guess makes my money worthwhile I hope. 
 
GenderPercent
 Male 97.63%
 Female 1.58%
 Prefer not to answer 0.79%
 
AgePercent
 __-14 0.39%
 15-19 22.96%
 20-24 51.75%
 25-29 17.90%
 30-34 5.83%
 35-39 0.39%
 40-44 0.39%
 45-__ 0.39%
 
Working?Percent
 Student 51.17%
 Full-Time 17.58%
 Part-Time 14.06%
 Unemployed 14.06%
 Prefer not to answer 3.13%
 
Those were standard to get a demographic that we are working with. Nothing really surprising there considering the user base of Giant Bomb. Now below is the questions that get more to the point, and are more focused on current Whiskey-Media events. 
Are you going to/Did you sign up for a Whiskey Media Membership?Percent
 Yes (Annually) 27.63%
 Yes (Monthly) 5.84%
 No 42.02%
 Undecided 24.51%
 
 If No, Why?Percent (Adjusted)
 Not enough content 8.16% (13.77%)
 Too expensive 14.59% (24.64%)
 Dislike the approach Whiskey Media is taking 36.48% (61.59%)
 N/A 40.77%
 
What is your opinion of Giant Bomb splitting up the Bombcast?Percent
 Frustrating 32.03%
 DISLIKE!!! ANGER!!!!! 21.88%
 It affects the community, but if it is better for them, than I am okay with it. 19.92%
 Meh... 10.16%
 It doesn't affect me 9.38%
 It's a good decision 6.64%
 
What was your opinion of the "Paid Member" video?Percent
 No opinion 42.19%
 It was funny. 28.12%
 It was done in poor humor. 14.45%
 It missed its mark. 11.72%
 it was boring. 3.52%
 
Are you going to/ Did you watch The Big Live Live Show Live?Percent
 I will/ I did 47.45%
 Part of it 33.33%
 Will not/ Did not 10.98%
 No, Because of this Membership mess. 8.24%
 
Did this Membership addition forever change your opinion of Whiskey MediaPercent
 Yes 18.82%
 No 41.96%
 Partially 39.22%
 
And those are the results, nothing really surprising I thought, pretty standard results. And as always this is only a small contingent of the Giant Bomb community as well as the Whiskey Media community so overall results might be slightly different. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any questions. After all is said and done though this was very profitable for Whiskey Media, and I am sure they will reap the benefits as well as the viewers and readers will reap the lasting benefits as well. 
I hope you all enjoyed the survey.  
 
P.S. if you would like to read any responses to the last question let me know.

Good job with the poll, you should post some of the comments people made (anonymously).

@pyromaster222: would like to read responses to last q.

@9cupsoftea:  Yeah I was going to leave them anonymous and sure I will post some of the comments. 
@InfamousBig: Ok will do, just give me sometime to compile the better ones.

Good survey

Posted by Diamond

It's interesting that your results for the subscription question were off by a bit compared to the people answering on the forums.  Maybe forum people were afraid of voting no?  Maybe more people who were upset were willing to fill an offsite poll about it.

Posted by MisterMouse
@Diamond:  Well that can be attributed to a lot of things, maybe some of the people who post more were likely to buy a subscription, or the other way around. I guess I am wondering in which way you think it was off. Also part of the Big Live Live Show was to get people to buy the subscriptions so what they answered and what actually happened (pressure to buy) may be different after the fact.

Pretty cool poll, and I'll have to side with the "doesn't affect me" side of the Whiskey debate.

Edited by ch13696

In a way this affected me. I still feel like the community is split. The people with the silver medals did something for WM at the same time looking down on us non-subscribers with shame because we can't come up with $5. While the people with gold medals will frown upon us with pity thinking we're holding out a busted tin can asking for change.

Aww yeh, cold hard statistics.

Posted by Ravenousrattler

good poll, not all that surprising though

Posted by Mr_Skeleton

When did you make that survey?

Posted by Green_Incarnate

Totally missed this. Interesting survey anyways. Nice job.

Posted by damnboyadvance

Good job with the poll. The way this was approached was not the way I would expect Whiskey Media, let alone Giant Bomb, to go about. They should of at least let the community know about the podcast thing a few weeks before the membership service went live. And yes, it's partially affected my view of Whiskey Media. :'(
 
Then again, it could be worse. Don't worry, I'm sure we will all get through this. Just another phase!

I think this may be a bit off due it still only being posted in the forums. 
 
I think there are a lot of subscribers who don't come to the forums at all.

Posted by MisterMouse
@Mr_Skeleton: It went live on wednesday and by this morning there wasn't any new entries so I made the information final 
@LordXavierBritish:
 Unfortunately that is the nature of any poll, but this was possibly as good of results as we could get.
Posted by LordXavierBritish
@pyromaster222: Well, I think the main issue with it is that a majority of gold subscribers are going to be forum posters simply based on the virtue that the people dedicated to Whiskey enough to fork over $50 are also going to be the people dedicated enough to go on the forums.
