• BronyStudy 2.0 - New Survey for the Fandom

    Seems appropriate posting this during the March for Science today! A science brony who worked for the original BronyStudy is expanding the work they did on that project and have a new survey for you guys to take to help with that.

    Get all the details after the break and participate if you can! There is also the possibility of a $50 Amazon gift card!

    Hello, my name is Daniel (Professor Uponium) and I am one of the members of BronyStudy, last year we (myself and Drs Courney "Nuka" Plante and Stephen Reysen) asked the fandom to respond to an expanded survey on fan behaviors and we recieved a massive response, the results can be found here https://sites.google.com/site/bronyresearchproject/ and hopefully soon in a number of publications we have submitted to various journals. I really want to pass on our thanks and continued support for the brony community.

    Today I (along with Drs Reysen and Plante) would like to ask everypony's help on this new survey launching what is the second wave in our expansion of the initial BronyStudy research and further understanding of fandom and group identity. This survey will aid in collecting general information about the fandom and it's relation to other fan communities that have been examined and surveyed in the published literature. 

    For your time and participation in this survey, you will be eligible to enter your e­mail into a draw for the chance to win one of several $50 gift certificates to Amazon.com (your odds of winning the gift card are based on the number of entries and are estimated at 1 in 200). Your email entry will not be linked to your responses in any way to preserve your anonymity.


    We thank you again for your continued support regarding our research! And we hope to see you at this year's BronyCon with an update of the research so far!!

    P.S. While we may try to keep up with the comments section some questions may be difficult for us to answer without fear of influencing responses from those who read it and we generally ask you keep the survey and your answer confidential while it is open. If you have any questions, concerns, issues (we are prone to the occasional typo or bug), or anything else, please email us at [email protected], through the contact page on the above website, or using the contact information given in the study.
