From time to time, [adjective][species] will collect information from readership and the fandom at large in the form of surveys. These surveys are fully anonymous (with the option of tying personal data to a response), and help provide insight not only into the fandom, but the site as well. The survey engine allows for a survey code and pass code to be provided if you have taken a paper survey from us and wish to key in your own results. Surveys are also open to those who did not receive a survey/pass code pair. The data provided on these surveys drives the content of the articles on the site as well as some of the data visualizations in order to provide a more in-depth look into our wonderful and wonderfully odd subculture.
If you have an questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
- Site Satisfaction Survey
[adjective][species] has been a whole lot of fun so far, and the response has been pretty good! What do you think of the site, though? If you'd like to see more of one thing, less of another; or if you have suggestions for directions the blog should be headed; or if you've got ideas for neat little toys to add, here's your chance to speak up! Information from this survey could help guide the direction of the project!
- What Species is _____?
We all know what species WE are! Well, most of us - some are just confused. How about those around you, though? Have you ever thought, "Boy, my boss sure looks like a bear, sometimes..." or "Man, that guy's totally a coyote!"? Well, this survey was pulled together to see if there are any trends in that respect. We've collected a few generic roles for you to assign species to for the people in your life. Thanks to Triggur for the idea!
- Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Fandom
The perceived sexual focus of the fandom aside, sexual orientation and gender identity play an undeniably large role within furry. The freedom associated both with the anonymity of being on the internet and the process of living vicariously through a constructed persona allow a great deal deal of room for expression and exploration, perhaps beyond what we would do or is even possible outside our subculture.
- Canidae Survey
It has been mentioned that canids make up a good portion of the furry community. A very large portion, actually. A reader recently wondered about the breakdown of species within the family canidae. Thus this survey! This is only really for canids, but we'll try to set up similar survey for other large families in the future to check about further breakdown.
- Mustelidae Survey
After the canidae survey, AtariOtter suggested a similar survey for Mustelidae.
- Babyfur Minipoll
This poll follows JM's article "How To Be A Babyfur", which you might like to read if you haven't done so already.
We're curious about the babyfur community. We think that there are a lot of you out there. We're open-minded and sex-positive. Responses will be collected and discussed in future articles on [adjective][species]. Follow @adjspecies to see when they go live.
Feel free ...
- Monogamy and Polygamy
There appears to be an expectation that furries will date and enter into relationships within the fandom, a relatively close-knit social group where many of the individuals share several interests in common. The intent of this survey is to judge the prevalence of monogamy and polygamy - that is, relationships that involve two, or relationships that involve more than two individuals - within the furry subculture. It asks questions regarding both mono- and poly-sexuality, and mono- and poly-romanticism in order to explore this topic.
- Social Interaction
This survey is intended to gauge roughly how socially interconnected furries are. We'll ask a few questions about the people you know and are in your life, but first, let's define what we mean by know: these are people you converse with, even if it's a simple hi-how-are-you-fine-thanks conversation, not just people whose names you know or see around! This is just so we're all on the same page. Answer only for your current situation.
