The following survey is open for all
fans who participate in some way in a band fiction community (you write, you read, run a community, etc.) I don't care if it's rockband fic, emo-band fic, popslash, whatever--all of your input is desired. If you don't understand a question or terminology, don't stop or feel like you have to look stuff up--I want your first impressions, how you would answer these questions based on your familiarity with these terms and ideas now.
Please feel free to pass this along to communities where it might be appropriate, and also to leave comments if you feel you couldn't answer questions properly with a check box choice.
The results of this survey work, when completed, will be posted to fanthropology
. Thank you for taking the time to complete it. It was simply written--by me with the input of several other folks on wording--out of curiosity based on recent discussions and is not "sponsored" or being run officially by any particular community or group.
Please be sure to include your answer to the first question about what bandfic communities you participate in or follow (even if it's just to say you read what shows up on your friends list). Otherwise, I won't be able to use your data to see which area(s) of bandom you participate in, or if you're really participating in bandfiction communities at all.Poll #456 A survey for band fiction readers and writers
