    Hi there,

    I am doing some research for a college assignment on the art of recording drums and I would really appreciate it if you could help me by filling out this short survey:

    I am interested in hearing from drummers, engineers and producers about their experiences in the recording studio. The survey should only take a few minutes to complete.

    Please feel free to forward this link on to anyone that you think might be interested.

    Thanks in advance

    thanks to those that filled in the survey, the response was really amazing. Just to be clear, the reason I use an online survey and don't post the questions directly into this forum is so that I can easily analyse the responses and prepare the appropriate reports for my research. given that there were hundreds of people who generously shared their recording experience with me it would be extremely counter productive for me not to use the available tools that are designed specifically for gathering information and reporting on it.

    I'm not really sure how that puts me in the "spammer" category. chill out dude.

    You come here, give no information, offer nothing except wanting our opinions and this sites exposure and to use it's data base to store your add. That's spam.

    You wouldn't know chit from slay.

    I have posted a survey about the above survey and hope that you will want to be involved with this survey.

    You have mass. Please appeal to your friends to become involved as well.

    A real survey:

    In that the OP came to the forum to "take" without "giving", then I guess I can see this as spam. Not as bad as spam trying to get us to visit his porn site and hence raise ad revenue or something, but still a processed spiced meat product of some kind.

    My main concern for the OP is that this is not a very good way to go about "research" for a college course. I hope your prof call you on it, and educate you about the inherent biases and misinformation you will get from this type of survey - leading to false conclusions. But alas, I am betting the class is about music production and is blissfully ignorant of actual scientific research methods. I did not see the original survey, but I think Space's follow-up survey is a nicely sarcastic example of some things that are wrong with this approach.

    We have a winner!!!

    "Sarcasm is stating the opposite of an intended meaning especially in order to sneeringly, slyly, jest or mock a person, situation or thing."

    Humor. It was not sarcasm. Many of the things that may seem like sarcasm and may seem like they came from my hand in that way, are not. It is nothing short of an over zealous attempt at humor. If anyone knew me in my physical world, you would know this is true.

    I took it as humorous sarcasm. And I liked it. :)

    Yes sir, I got that as well.

    Just a footnote, for times far away.

    I didn't take the OP's survey but I took yours Mr. Space.

    I laughed and laughed.

    Now I'm slightly downbeat, thinking about how surveys get weighted and questions are biased and people, like fish in this case, get baited.

    Check this survey for an example of a weighted question.
