The Daedalus Project
There is a lot about MMORPGs that we don't know. Lots of arguments on blogs like this one, or on various other website or forums, are made based on anecdotal evidence at best. Look for example at the famous "if you play Horde, then you are an evil person" debate, which was based on a the reaction of a single 3-year old on seeing undead. Wouldn't it be better if we had broader statistical evidence on questions like what choice of avatar says about a person? Well, it turns out you can contribute to gathering that evidence. The most famous MMORPG statistician (not much of a title, I admit) Nick Yee is continuing work on his Daedalus Project. And you can participate. Fill out the survey, spread the word, and we will know more about questions like these.
