October Community SurveyPosted by bluemoose, 23 Oct 2011 06:01It's time for another LEGO Community Engagement & Communication Team community survey... follow the link and let LEGO know what you think: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AFOLOct2011 29 comments on this article By Si_UKNZ in New Zealand, 23 Oct 2011 06:17what on earth does this mean? ....What do you usually do on the LEGO online community?"Use elements to completely change things I am working with in another field""Directly use one or more elements and combine them for my purpose" By richselby in Denmark, 23 Oct 2011 06:24It's not market research, it's an elaborate hoax by a bunch of frustrated university psychology graduates. By Huw in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2011 06:41I'll tell you what I think: I think it made my eyes bleed, the page colours were terrible! By DrDaveWatford in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2011 06:50I'm sure I already completed this 1-2 weeks ago..... By Alemas in Germany, 23 Oct 2011 09:11@rickselby: XD@xangodango: O_O XD@Huw: XD@DrDave: :PExperiment in facial expressions... :P By Thomson & Thompson in Canada, 23 Oct 2011 09:12They didn't have TBB on the "select your online community" page! Other than that, it was all right. By Matthew in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2011 09:33Now this is bad, going against their own Fair Play policy :o) - http://s4.postimage.org/5y3xf7oui/survey.png By Alemas in Germany, 23 Oct 2011 09:35@LegoCoastGuard: Good grief! :P Must have been a Surveymonkey employee who wrote that! :P By Thomson & Thompson in Canada, 23 Oct 2011 09:37^^I know! That's horrible! By giraffefreckles in United States, 23 Oct 2011 11:27They had BrickLink and BrickLink for sites you frequent. I had to go look up which one was it.I also get the feeling the survey writer couldn't quite write complex thoughts -- or maybe he/she was limited to one sentence and got frustrated. By spency13 in United States, 23 Oct 2011 12:41Did anyone else find that color wheel of feelings weird?..... By krklint in United States, 23 Oct 2011 14:34As a University instructor of English and Rhetoric, I have students develop surveys ... and if this current survey was created by one of my students, the grade would have been a "D."The area where they listed all the various Lego usergroups, and they didn't have a catagory for "Do Not Use..." well, very unprofessional. Also, the way that section was worded cancels out all the data from that question due to the "choose a catagory if you do not use this group" concept. Simply awful survey; and yes, the colour palette was disturbing too. It did not follow standard online visual protocols. By Alemas in Germany, 23 Oct 2011 14:36@krklint: Well, that's the expert's view on it... :P By legomaniac in United States, 23 Oct 2011 15:14My eyes, ahh my eyes :PAn ok survey, the color wheel thing was pointless I think By wunztwice in United States, 23 Oct 2011 15:56I got soooooo dizzy in that last section about which communities I participate in. That bright red/yellow was tooo much! By TooMuchLEGO in United States, 23 Oct 2011 16:10@Huw: I agree with you on that one By itsaturkey in United States, 23 Oct 2011 21:34Alemas: What exactly does XD mean? :P Is it LOL with eyes closed? :PI'm not even gonna' bother doing the survey. From what I've heard it's basically torture.(And I don't like really bright colors that contradict each other :) By TooMuchLEGO in United States, 23 Oct 2011 21:48^Yes, pretty much By Dlakii in Australia, 24 Oct 2011 01:25What's this? This survey is painful to even look at and do?/Challenge accepted./...I find it interesting that the "Apart from the online community, where else do you interact with LEGO and LEGO fans?" doesn't have a negative response; not that it applies to me, but there are surely plenty of people who don't have access to such events, or simply don't attend. By MaverickDengo in United States, 24 Oct 2011 08:24^ Yeah besides the online community, I don't participate in anything. (I live too far away from everything) By Gandalf1 in United States, 24 Oct 2011 09:16They listed Bricklink twice in a row on the "select your online community" page, as well as other problems that were already mentioned. This was not a good survey. By Alemas in Germany, 24 Oct 2011 09:18@Gandalf1: What a rubbish survey... :P By Gandalf1 in United States, 24 Oct 2011 09:22@legomaniac: I agree. By jonbuddy in United States, 24 Oct 2011 16:45@spency13, that color wheel thing was really random...like the 'Learning Styles' test I have to take every school year... :S By Ypres in Canada, 24 Oct 2011 17:06It's more like Lego wanted to know which kind of people fill out their surveys... otherwise anyone elses guess is as good as mine. By Delatron in United Kingdom, 25 Oct 2011 05:15That colour wheel will dictate the next new themes. Not because of our responses, just because a Lego employee will stick a pin in it while blindfolded and spun round."Excellent, green! That means everyone wants conflict-free, hippy environmental themes for 2013!" By rocao in United States, 25 Oct 2011 05:18There's a fair chance the survey was written by a Danish person. It's not an excuse, but it may be the reason. I also wish that there was an option to skip the first few questions (particularly the open-ended portions) if you've answered previous surveys. By modena in Italy, 25 Oct 2011 11:15Done! The colour question was quite hard... By Holly-Wood in Italy, 29 Oct 2011 16:29No LDraw on the "select your online community" page! A real disappointment.
