Links to the online questionnaire were publicized at well-known websites that catered to MMORPG players, such as the Lore, Stratics, and IGN Vault networks. The data presented in this report comes from surveys collected over two time periods - one in mid-April of 2002, and one in late August of 2002. Players of EverQuest, Dark Age of Camelot, Ultima Online, Acheron's Call, and Anarchy Online were asked to participate. Of the responses collected, about 72% were EQ players, 13% were DAOC players, 10% were UO players, 3% were AC players, and 2% were AO players.
