This survey is taking FOREVER to complete. Whatever system is prcessing this input has to think for extended periods of time. My answers take only a few secs ....

If you do the survey, you may as well be mining in another window....

Thanks. Given the lag though, think I'll wait for the early adopters to clear the server before starting it myself!

CCP you can shove your survey up your arse it took over an hour to get to 83% and then the dam thing went back to the beginning.

Perhaps more importantly: this thing happens every time CCP sends out a survey GD gets swamped with "is this legit" threads.

Could CCP at some point take the time to consider that they're managing a game and a community where a fair amount of paranoia is a very real and very necessary in-game, meta-game and out-of-game trait to have?

The next time, make a sticky thread first.
Then send out the survey emails, and include a link to said thread.

Communication and coordination at its finest it would save everyone a bit of grief.

Made me a little bit paranoid, and as we all know, just cause you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you.

It's so slow, it's utterly pathetic.
It's stuck! I've tried restarting it. Been trying to take this utterly pathetic stupid survey for over an hour.

Didn't CCP think to allow more than 10 people at a time to take the survey?
I'm sure you'll really get some great data from this survey since by the time poeple get done taking it they're ready to pull their hair out.

Why is the survey asking me how often I play and how long I play for? Doesn't CCP have that information already? Why aren't they telling me, "Hey, we notice you play every day for three hours or more - would you like reminders to take a break and get some sunshine?"

The worst part is not the slowness, The worst is the inane questions! If you want someones opinion give them more options than clicking a radio button. So often the answer you "serve" us does not allow you to express why you clicked a radio button in the first place. So un-pro as to make the whole survey meaningless.
My guess is that an intern has come up with this non-shiney pile of c rap

Thank you for completing this survey.
We appreciate your time and contribution.

damn that took long...almost took so long i would start to demand a plex for the wasted time :P

CCP, you mean the legit survey is legit. The scamming, virus loaded, keylogging surveys are not. I guess it'll be up to the hacked accounts petitions to figure out which was which.

To players: NEVER ever ever ever click on any links you get in your email, even from CCP. If it's legit, it's on the forums. If it's legit and not on the forums, assume it's still a scam. I mean, holy crap, what kind of stupid ass dev decided it was a good idea to tell everyone "hey, click on random links you get in your email!"?

I gave up on doing it as it kept reseting back to the first question, was the big kick in the balls when I was about 1 question from the end, clicked the continue button and oh noes back to start.....will probably end up doing it some time in the near future when the lag dies

OK.. I can't be arsed to deal with the lag or the risk... but on the chance it was legit.. What did they ask? Can somebody provide a summary of what was on their mind?
( It was TLDR for me..)

A message on the game login window would be better, considering how many people actually read the forums. Links can be put in that message to a forum post and allay fears before the email gets sent.

Painfully slow Sad

Also, another vote here for the pointlessness (or at least poor wording) of some questions adding to the frustration - how much do I agree with the statement that Eve 'is realistic'? Hard to judge, I'd say - I'm not sure what stage interstellar spacecraft technology has reached in the US but here in Europe I'd have to say that a game about immortal humans sitting inside pods of goo controlling spaceships with their minds in order to wage vast interstellar wars is edging on the side of fantasy as opposed to realism.

A less trite survey next year please, hosted somewhere that won't take so long to load each new question. The only saving grace was that, being on the web, I had easy access to p0rn to distract myself while waiting for the survey to crawl from page to page Neutral

Slowness of survey makes it a truly frustrating experience, and I know all about frustrating, I've tried advertising a scam legitimate contract in Jita...
