Done. Enjoyed that, work cooling down after a hectic couple of days, nice relaxing survey to work through
Hope I win, I want that RAM!
Oooh, I can "continue" without checking the "read and understood" tickbox...
I think I have filled this in.... can't remember though.
Just filled it in and theres one thing I hate about these tick box surveys is it leads to misinformation. There's no box to write "Buts" or explain why you ticked a box only half agreeing with what it said.
2 Examples being it asked how many games did I buy for my PS3 the last 12 months. I said 0, so it looks like I don't play on my ps3 but I do regularly its just that I rent them all. I've played through about 6 games so far this year. Also the do I buy music and download games question was really stupid.
Hope my rant doesn't get me booted from the competition though haha
That's generally the problem with questionnaires, you can try to think of every eventuality and response people will give, but it just makes analysing the data nigh on impossible.
I know from some research im doing at the moment, that no matter how much you pilot a questionnaire someone will still come up with an answer you hadn't thought of or simply not understand a question you were sure was very obvious.
I was slightly frustrated with one of the multiple choice questions, it would only allow me to select 3 of the options out of about 5 or 6, (I can't remember which question) and I wanted to select all of them. But thats just the way it goes I guess, I was too eager to give my feedback to this community/magazine
bit crap about the, 'you give us full permission to contact you about any other crap we may feel like, and use your info to share with our other spam horders'. :/
Argh, ffs, i didn't realise i could untick that stupid box :/
Pretty obvious the site and its owners consider this a UK affair, guess other people's survey results don't matter as much so I won't bother.
Same here! :-/
Damn I really wanted to fill this in. I had loads of useful feedback to give, which I gave. I love the magazine and the website and I check it all the time.
Then, I got to the last page about partners etc contacting me, and how I shouldn't worry because I can opt out any time.
Shame on you, bit-tech. Spam email, and spam postal mail is an enormous problem. I know many companies have opt-out processes that mysteriously never seem to work. I hate spam with a vengeance, and I cancelled my feedback to your site, for fear of being eternally spammed by email and postal mail. Do you know how unscrupulous many firms are with personal data? Do you know that most of the "we respect your privacy" are total lies? I've worked for companies who say this on their sites, and absolutely do not respect people's privacy. Companies pass contact data around to each other all the time. My data will spread like a virus, and for a very high price. Of course, I receive non of the benefit. I just get tons of junk mail.
Next time, consider that smart, savvy PC building techs know what these disclaimers really mean, and will do just about anything to avoid receiving unsolicted email, postal mail and phone calls. Including forgoing the chance to provide feedback to, and win prizes from, our favourite hardware magazines.
Or perhaps, shame on you for not reading the article:
