The topic of a community survey has come up a couple of times in the project's history, but we've decided to make one now because we feel the community is large enough to get some interesting results. It'll ask you questions about who you are, how you found Thrive and what general opinions about the game you have.
ALL QUESTIONS ARE OPTIONAL. We're stressing this because we don't want people to feel discourage by the number of questions they're faced with, and we want to gather as much useful data as possible. Only answer those you want to. There will inevitably be some questions which end up being answered more than others, but that's fine. However, NO ANSWERS WILL BE RECORDED UNLESS YOU CLICK SUBMIT ON THE FINAL PAGE.
You can view the results so far after you've submitted your set of answers (or alternatively click here). From time to time we'll post interesting stuff from the more detailed breakdowns behind the scenes.

Odd. You should be able to click inside the circles to choose. Try making sure you're hitting the centres accurately.
EDIT: Also I accidentally broke the question about how often you play Thrive by correcting a typo. People who've already answered might want to go through again and resubmit their answer to only that question (it'll skew total response numbers, but this isn't an exact science).

However, due to various text answers and 'Other' options, I've taken what's been submitted so far and produced these graphs which can't be seen in the official results. There were a couple of troll responses I had to get rid of (such as the time travelling Antarctic prisoner).

Looking at the graphs: "It appeared in my bookmarks" MY ANSWER MADE THE CHART! But in all seriousness, that is what happened. I was looking through my large list of bookmarks, when I came upon thrive. It's like waking up, turning your alarm off, then falling back asleep and not remembering you did that.
