Forum Survey (thanks for all the responses so far!)

Update - link to survey post:

(a few more questions than I originally intended but most should be brief)

Edit: Thanks for all the replies so far, v interesting to see people’s responses!


Would people be up for completing a kowforum survey? Just out of interest really. What questions would you include? I was thinking about 8-10 questions.

Areas for potential questions (not final questions!):
Main/secondary game
Main/secondary army
How long have you played KoW
Tournaments
Universal battle
Forum use
Point size played

The questions might be a bit tricky to write - did you start KoW when you picked up a rulebook, played an intro game, or painted a unit for it, etc?

@FredOslow What do you reckon?

I have no strong opinion on the matter :slight_smile:

It seemed polite to ask! Is there anything you’d want asked about the forum? I guess you can see most of the data on some sort of dashboard.

Yeah I can see a lot of data, but not all of it is useful. :slight_smile:
I do like the “how did you find the forum” question.
