I just finished going through all 829 surveys and we only really lost 26 (instead of the 28 we thought it was before). So our final total is 803 completed surveys! The other 26 were all deleted because they were either full of comment spam (seriously whoever put down Weena Mercator, thanks for wasting your survey!), or they only filled out the first and/or second page. It becomes hard to work out the percentages when you don't have a concrete total to work with, as well as it doesn't look professional when we calculate errors and show them to a company. "This is what the survey says, but it could have actually been as high or as low as this..." doesn't look great on a report! We're sorry if those of you who didn't finish the survey feel bad about this, but we only told you all several times to finish it in entirety! Nonetheless, these are still huge numbers, and thank you fans for participating! Last week on our Twitter I dropped a bomb that the old cast won... mostly. There is one FUNImation VA who beat out the old ones - but we won't tell you who it is just yet! We can't drop any more hints right now. I'm hoping to get at least the numerical results portion done in the next 2-3 days. The actual writing is going to take us the longest time.
The other piece of good news is as of right now, Phase 3 has 45 surveys! That's almost a quarter of our goal in only one day! This surprised nearly everyone on staff! If we reach 200 within a matter of days, then we will leave it open for 2 or 3 weeks only, and I will send all of the results from this survey and the last one together. And so far, no incompletes!
Thanks again to all of you who have participated - and we hope that many of you who finished the first one will fill out the second survey! Again, we will keep you up to date on how the report is going.
