Please help!! ^______^ Calling all you girl gamers!  
To help my wonderful friend soundsoft_elvy, I'm spreading around this survey that she needs help with!! ^__^ Please take a moment to say a word, girls! ^__^

*copied and pasted from Elvy's lj*
Calling all FEMALE forum/IM or chat role-players! I WANT YOU!

I'm going to be working on an article this week about message board/chatroom role-playing games for Girls Gaming Guide (the magazine I write/work for). However, I'd like to use some quotes to help supplement my article. If you would like to supply me with your opinions, please read the information below and email me your responses.

I've been supplied with an official email address, lsefchik@girlsgamingguide.com, but my computer doesn't have Outlook right now, so I can't access it this week for the article. For now, just send all responses to: elvysoundsoft@aol.com

Please follow these instructions:
1.) In order to use your material for quotation, I would like the following information from you:
-Your first and last name
-Your age

This is so that I can substantiate the fact that you're a real person, as well as supplement the age demographics.

2.) At the end of your opinioned response, please include the following paragraph below and fill in the ( )'s when required:

"I, (your name), allow the Girls Gaming Guide to utilize my opinions that I have just written in their articles covering the topics that are pertinent to my statements. I understand that if my opinions should be chosen for quotations within any of their articles, I will not be compensated for my words. I also declare that I am over the age of thirteen (13); or, if I am not, that my legal guardian(s) is aware of my written actions and approves. I understand that the Girls Gaming Guide may need to edit or cut down my response in order to be grammatically appropriate or fit the size requirements for the article. All articles written with my words are the sole copyright of the Girls Gaming Guide, and that I relenquish any ownership that contains any of my opinions within their work."

3.) Now the fun part! Your opinions! They can be as long or as short as you want them to be. However, keep in mind that 'short and sweet' with a little bit of elaboration works best. I'd say keep it to a paragraph at the most, but if you feel the need to tell me a story...by all means, go for it. As a reminder, these articles are for the WOMEN ONLY! Eventually I'll be doing some articles that will involve guys' opinions as well. But for this particular article, I just want the women.

Here are some things I'd like you to touch on:

-How did you get started?
-What was your first game?
-How long have you been playing?
-What have been the pros and cons to these types of games?
-Why do you like playing message/chat-based games?
-Do you think women or men play these types of games the most?
-Why do you play these games?

Good luck! The sooner I can get these responses, the better!

Thanks for spreading the word, hun! If any of you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me here, or send me an email and ask.

Once I get your responses, I'll send you a reply back saying that I received them. So if you haven't heard back from me within a day or two stating that I've gotten your replied, send it again. It's possible that AOL may not have given it to me. *grumbles* I can't wait until I get Outlook on my computer. ~_~*

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 13th, 2005 08:14 am (UTC)
Mmmm.. I think she's looking for more the kind where there is actually some sort of structure, group, actually. ^^ Though we often do that kind of RP in some of the groups thatI've been in! =D
