    The survey. and margin of error.

    As a gamer, I really appreciate the survey because of its way to return direct feedback to the guys at stoic.

    However, as a criminologist and a person who does have to work with survey results and building the surveys themselves I do have to do say it that the ability to submit another survey (one that is exactactly the same as you just completed) needs to be removed or it will skew your data and not really be a valid source of information, nor a valid representation of the population you surveyed.

    Not trying to be a dick, just trying to make sure that you guys get good results with a low margin of error.
    you're indifferent to suffering, insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. War, murder, death are all the same to you as bottles of beer. The daily business of life is a corrupt comedy. You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split-seconds and instant replays. You are madness, Diana, virulent madness, and everything you touch dies with you. Well, not me. Not while I can still feel pleasure and pain and love.

    Thanks for the info. I'll make sure the team sees this (in case they haven't already)!

    thank you, I just do not want some one to go to all the trouble of gathering data and it results in being flawed or unaccetpable due to margin error is too high.

    I was wondering about this at well. Seemed odd that the same link would work twice. Double counting can't be a good thing
