If you’re over 18, then here’s a survey for you. I just completed it, and there’s no explicit content in it; unrelated guidelines appear to prohibit minors from taking it.

It does contain a few infamous, unpleasant quotes though, so remember what the caterpillar said.

Below the full press release.

My name is Samuel Miller. I am a PhD student from the University of North Dakota. I am currently doing research on the Brony fandom. My research focuses on what this fandom could mean for gender and irony. I will be conducting research while I am at BronyCon as well as presenting a panel about my past research on the fandom. I am currently looking to start collecting data through a survey that I have created specifically for Bronies, both male and female. When I go to the convention, I will be holding interviews and allowing convention goers to take the survey there as well. Could you please post the link to the survey on your website. It is anonymous and all participants who complete the survey are eligible to win a pony stuffed animal from Xsjado78 on deviantart.com Please make it clear that I am only looking for Bronies who are at least 18 years of age to take the survey. This is due to Institutional Review Board guidelines prohibiting minors to participate in my survey. Thank you for you help. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    He needs to delete the pony pics out of the survey. They were clearly leading at times (such as using Nightmare Moon, Diamond Tiara & Silver Spoon on pages asking for your assessment of comments unfavorable to the Brony community), and can throw off the accuracy of his results.
