Hi all

As part of my 3rd and final year of my BA psychology course at Swansea uni, I'm doing my 3rd year project on thoughts & feelings about online nicknames and gaming, investigated through a web-based questionnaire. The questionnaire also contains items regarding competitiveness and a section regarding competitive tf2 players specifically, since I wanted to investigate TF2 league participants and see if this competitive element affects nicknames, competitive values and so forth.

http://psy.swansea.ac.uk/questionnaires/792753/

The questionnaire is linked above and there is more information there. Some of the questions may seem quite casual, but it shouldn't be difficult to fill in and can be completed in about 15-25 minutes.

Thanks to all that fill it out, I'll appreciate it very much!

Very nicely made, good luck, and if there is a way for us to see the results when you are finished that would be great.

Mine is some warped version of Pendulum, that I changed from Pendy since it was cool at the time to make your name look Finnish. Mostly remember Byte -> Bytje's thing. Not sure it was meant to be look Finnish, but that language consists of nothing but A E J I.

Anyway, vote seemed a tiny bit too detailed. I don't think a lot of people necessarily sit down and think about what they want to call themselves.

That was really interesting, I dropped Psychology as a subject after my first year of uni, really miss it. Hope the rest of your course goes well.

fatswimdudesurprised there was no question asking how old i was when i made my nickname

haha well most of the questions ask about your thoughts now, so the time when you made the name is kinda irrelevant here, but if it was investigated separately it would be interesting :p

cheers! kinda knew including my student email on this online questionnaire was risky business..

Filled it out.

There were a few questions which I wasn't entirely sure about though, specifically the ones asking about what you think others think about your name. Did you mean literally just your name, or more the reputation associated with your name?

For instance, for pie_hero, would it be more along the lines of "horrible name what was he thinking, he's probably jello IRL" or "gorgeous psuedo-Mexican who is a lovely person despite being a Scout main"?

It's what you think others think about your name literally, so probably the former of your two examples :>
thanks!

After you publish, you should release anonymized data. Particularly the relationship between division and perception of reasons for winning/losing are interesting to me.

I'm gonna have to double check what i'm allowed to release in terms of my report/data actually but hopefully will be able to share both for those who are interested, will be completed sometime next year (may-ish).

If all is fine i could make an individual spreadsheet for the winning/losing response sections :P

How well do you feel this Nickname reflects your online playing style?

this question is on there twice on page 3, in the box

a) Why did you choose this nickname?

and as a stand alone :]

kiler4funDone, I wonder what this says about my name...

haha it's a mystery :>

also guys, for "a) Why did you choose this nickname?", "How do you feel other players view you according to your Nickname?" & "Regarding the on-line FPS game you play the most, please rate how much each of the following describes your on-line playing ability:" please select an option for every representative item as it seems a lot of people are only selecting one particular option (e.g. skillful) and then rating that on the scale of 1-7. Thanks!
