Apparently an "Associates Degree" doesn't exist in his world.. and he doesn't account for those who don't assign an age to their avatars. Hope those factors aren't super important to his thesis.

Interesting survey. There is a difference between feeling connected to objects you bought versus feeling connected to those you created, especially if they actually are a part of your avatar. I wish there had been something in there to address that.

Fun survey. It was weird putting down on paper (figuratively) just how depressing my second life is compared to my mile a minute real life.

My New Years Resolution wasn't to give up SL, but to see how long I could go without actually needing to log in for something. It's been 31 days so far.

Gage Wirefly

I completed the survey but received no payment. :/

The survey said it might take a week or so to receive the L$.


@Kim: There is also a huge difference between possessions you have in real life, versus possessions you have in Second Life, for similar reasons. My most "cherished" possessions IRL are connective objects. Books connect me to other worlds. Heirlooms connect me to the past. My computer and my phone help connect me to the rest of the world.

In SL? In terms of virtual possessions, I most value the actual avatars. They're fun, and there's nothing quite like making people smile, or even laugh, by temporarily being a dancing penguin or a slug in a dress or... well, whatever.

A comment box would have been nice, definitely. Still an interesting survey, though!

I just received 1000L$ from him. Thanks NWN for the tip, and good luck to the researcher.

Gage Wirefly

I received payment as well, being the notorious skimmer I didn't realize there would be a time frame. I do apologize to the survey creator.

I love filling up surveys like this, not because I'll get paid, but for the insights...and I could really relate because I did a thesis in which i needed to have people fill out surveys for me, and it was difficult then because you need to do them offline most of the time, compute the answers manually, input them to a computer....well, you get it.

Anyway, good luck, Peter!


Dear Residents!

Thank you for your kind help in my research! Finally, I have like 321 responses which are more I expected! You are amazing! :)

Once my thesis is completed, I will publish the results here!

Best, Peter


I did mine on Monday before he posted that he had 321, because he needed 300, I guess I don't get my L$ :(
