This may be a serious post but it just doesn't come across as one, Rotton. And seriously, you've been around these forums long enough to know how this would probably sound to others. I expect most of us on these forums have college educations and I think we would have expected a lot more concrete information about a post that alleges to be on a paper for Cal Poly.

As others have pointed out, we should have been given a lot more information right at the beginning of the post so that didn't become the focus of discussion. The OP should have informed us what class/subject this paper was for, how students were selected, what was the criteria for deciding they were Trekkies, what level of gaming experience, how much experience they had with MMOs, etc. Your OP doesn't even tell us if they were actually informed before they volunteered whether they would be paying for a subscription or whether they might have thought the study would pay for it. Also your use of the term 'control group' inherently implies there was a 'test group' and since you only mention one group I assume you misspoke.

Without this kind of information there really isn't an intelligent discussion that can be conducted on your OP, imo.

And unfortunately many of the visitors of 4chan try to incorporate that crap into their daily lives.
your trying hard to sound real smart (I appreciate the effort) but your blowing a game forum way way out of proportion relating to the things your trying to point out , if that makes any sense?

This is all pointless anyhow in light of the following;

1; This was posted in Ten Forward.
Ten Forward is not the place for this even if one wants to escape the ravenous wolves in the main forums.

2; I will ask here, as I do many many places (to no avail (Didn't Einstein classify this behavior as a sign of insanity?) Why post this?
Anyone who has been here even a short while should know the drama associated with any content that contains references to quitting.

It serves no purpose that I can see save to create pointless drama or draw attention. Can anyone enlighten me?

3; This was posted in Ten Forward.
Since when do you post something you want taken seriously in here?

People should know better.

The real question, is what was the demographics of this group?
What were their ages? Were they married? What was their annual income?

And what kind of exit infotrmation did you gather?

Who cares? If we succeed, we cause chaos. If we fail, we cause chaos. I'm not seeing a downside here.

You can avoid getting infracted by eating sufficient vegetables... and there are always prunes...
