Happy Halloween, Scribes! As autumn brings changes and begins to wind down the year, we are so excited to finally be presenting to you the results from the big AS survey. This will definitely not be the last survey we do as feedback from you guys is so incredibly important, and please know that this experience has already been enlightening for us, both in your responses and managing the results and how to put them together for viewing, so it should absolutely be faster turn around in the future. We hope that you continue to share your thoughts, concerns, and ideas with us!

We thank you for your patience and, without further ado, would like to share the results below!

The results are organized in groupings much like the original survey was.
- Staff feedback and advice
- Event and General Feedback
- Forum-based multiple choice
- Staff-based multiple choice
- Events-based multiple choice
- Miscellaneous multiple choice

And before we proceed, I wanted to thank Anika for helping with making this thread so pretty and Deer for helping with taking what the survey website allowed and making it more appealing and digestible for users. I couldn't have done it without you guys!

1. This is the most important rule. While we want to hear your feedback, we ask that you remain polite and respectful.

2. Keep criticism constructive. Rather than telling us everything that is wrong and you hate things, perhaps suggest ways to improve! If you're uncertain of what improvements can be made, you can say that too!

3. The posts on this first page will be for staff use, and any updates will be posted accordingly as the discussions progress.

Staff Feedback

Staff Amount:
27% said we could add a little more to the team
17% said neutral
49% said it was at a good amount
7% said there are too many on the team

Advice to New Staff:
- Be active but don't overdo things out of high enthusiasm
- Be approachable and people will trust you. Be kind! Don't get blinded by your flashy new rank
- Keep to your own jurisdiction and let others do their work - otherwise it can cause tension and confuse users
- Communicate!
- Don't behave like you are better than other users of AS
- If many people break the same rule in a short time, see if maybe the rule is unclear and causing misinterpretation

Key points of general feedback:
(Note- we did not include answers that were None, N/A, or good as is)

Event Thoughts:
- Rules can be unclear and it's frustrating when they change without warning
- Rather rules have too much info than too little
- Some smaller events and alternatives to the big ones would be nice
- More variety of events: music, art, photography, etc. Character creation. Community building. OC event.
- Clearer and more visible communication for events starting.
- Sometimes there is too much going on.

100 DoS
- Lots of work, people have jobs, overwhelming
- People who do not participate have a long stretch of nothing
- Rules are unclear on how to use the prompts

1x1 Comp
- Wishing for more than 1 character
- Rumors that next year everyone is only allowed 1 roleplay
- Can be hard to find a partner

Social Media Event
- Should be for points
- Colored username is cool

General Feedback:
- Layout/themes; to follow through with promised theme options or generally improve the theme. Perhaps more art such as banners.
- Staff interacting more, participating in events more, and being more accepting of criticism regarding changes and events.
- Increased bbcode options (box, scroll bar) and resources for learning/getting help.
- Communication between staff and members, better prepping events to avoid loopholes or later changes, and prompt updates on site or staff changes.
- Quality / general improvement of events.
- Try to improve the sense of community.
