Title: THEURGY SIM POLL RESULTS 2019
Post by: Auctor Lucan on April 13, 2019, 03:12:13 AM
THEURGY SIM POLL RESULTS 2019

Below you can find the result of 27 answers to the poll. We are currently 32 writers excluding yours truly. If a rating was set between two numbers, like "8 or 9", I had it as 8,5 when counting the score. I have masked character and writer names as needed. Here we are Part 1 of the replies!

1. Does your GM generally need to increase, decrease, or keep to the same posting length when he writes?

2. Do you feel lost and without direction in the game? If so, how would you like to be informed about story development?

3. Name one thing you want me to continue doing as GM.

4. Name one thing you want me to stop doing as GM.

5. Name one thing you want me to start doing as GM.

6. List the times/periods in the last year where the story seemed to drag on, you were bored, or the energy in the Group seemed the lowest.

7. Do you feel rail-roaded in the story? (meaning: you get pushed into an IC-situation you do not want to write) If so, when was this?

8. Are you enjoying playing your character(s), and if not, what would you like to happen to them?

9. Is your GM fair or do you feel he favours any particular player over the others?

10. Would you like to see graphics, maps or floor plans used more often, particularly in combat situations?

Overall Comments to Question 12:

13. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being best, rate your role-playing experience in the Star Trek: Theurgy sim. If you have no opinion, please say so. Also, can you think of what might make the sim score a rating of 10?

Average: 8,55 (Previous rating: 9,33)

14. Name different things the Aldea Prime Anthology should have more and less of.

15. Name different things the next Season (Season 2) should have more and less of.

I like the results, the 8,55 rating great, but I would like to comment on the results in detail tomorrow or the day after that. :)

The results of the last poll conducted in 2015 can be found here (https://uss-theurgy.com/forum/index.php/topic,1002.msg2003.html#msg2003), and the 2017 one here (https://uss-theurgy.com/forum/index.php/topic,2117.0.html#info_11787) for sake of comparison.

Feel free to comment here in the meantime!

Best Regards,

Auctor Lucan

THEURGY SIM POLL CONCLUSIONS 2019

Okay! Reading the results, here are my comments to your replies. :)


That's it then! I hope you find my answers satisfactory, and I would love if further discussion could be held here about my replies. I am all for settling misunderstanding or finding ways to improve, so if you have anything on your minds, please speak up. If you would rather do it privately over PM, that works too.

Thanks for all the time you guys put into this poll, and I hope you all feel it was worth it. Lastly, thank you all for your kindness and appreciation, it really means a lot to me. More than you might think! :)

Best Regards,

Auctor Lucan
