    Thanks to Phanx for responding - I'd have been a poor (read: useless) source to answer that question!

    Greetings -

    I am currently completing a doctoral dissertation exploring the motivation of addon developers for WoW, and as a part of the research, I'm hoping to get folk to answer some questions on a survey. The survey is located at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TRVV3HB, and is completely anonymous. The IRB at my university (Pepperdine) frowns on paid surveys, so I'm unable to offer any compensation for participation - sorry about that.

    I'm happy to discuss my research questions with anyone interested - my primary interest is in what motivates addon developers first to develop addons, and then to share it with others. I've had the opportunity to interview a handful of developers (including Ackis and Kaeltan), and now I'm trying through this survey to further clarify ("confirm" or "deny" would be too definitive for social science research, which is notoriously squishy) the themes I've encountered in the interviews. The survey is 22 questions (mostly yes/no or multiple choice), so it's designed to be quick to complete. I very much appreciate any assistance folks who frequent these forums can offer - thanks for considering it.

    Eric Ellis
