New and Improved Map Survey!

Alright, from mrapple's suggestion of making a more in depth survey with more options and few responses, I have done it. From the free account using Polldaddy I have created a much more in depth survey. It includes 9 questions based around maps and game modes of bzflag. It also includes the option to submit your own question for the next survey (yes, 9 questions is not enough for a complete survey) and/or to get results sent to you before seen by others!

I welcome and strongly recommend that all fill out this short and simple survey. I did it myself and it only took me 5 or less minutes. Take the time and fill out the survey. This may just help improve your gaming experience and have more maps that you love!

When the results are complete, I will post them up here for everyone to see and use.

Take the survey now! Go to:

Note: Where it says "Please help us understand why you chose this answer" is just a place for comments. This is optional.

Yea, apparently people thought the reasons were mandatory. They are completely optional. It does help us understand, but for the most part..its just optional comments.
