Help out a grad student...

This has been cross posted, so I apologize if you receive this more than once.

When I first submitted this survey to this community during my preliminary investigations, I was overwhelmed by the pleasant and helpful responses. I am submitting a more refined version of this survey here now.

To elaborate, I am currently working on my dissertation project investigating female identity in WoW.

I would greatly appreciate it if you all took the time to fill it out here:


Any comments or questions you have, feel free to let me know.

Also, feel free to pass the link on to others.

Anyone interested in a survey?

I've posted in this community before about my dissertation research and you were all incredibly helpful. I am doing some research on WoW and female identity within the game. I've made up a survey using the very helpful Survey Monkey and I'd really like any of you who are willing to take the time and answer a few questions. If you guys can pass this survey onto other WoW or MMO players you know, I would be really grateful. (The WoW forums aren't exactly the best place to ask for help with scholarly endeavors. All I've gotten in the past are ASCII facepalms and toilet humor.)

I've been working on my dissertation for what seems like forever, and I'm really trying to get things moving. So, once again, thank you to any of you who want to help. Any feedback you can give me about the survey itself would also be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Thank you so much to all the participants! I've reached my limit of responses on the site and I will let you all know when I have cleared the cache. Thank you again.

Finally hit 80 last night! Been working on it all week to make the guild happy, but then I realised how happy I was when I hit 80! My priest is going to be healing up some raids this week and am already getting invites! Love it!

Hey girls. Just found this community :) I think it's kick ass that there are so many chicks playing. I'm currently running 5 toons on Arathor. Haven't figured out which I want to be my main yet. I love my little gnome warlock, but it doens't seem she's in high demand. LoL.

If you're on CST in the evenings, look me up! I'll either be on as Cemaile or Ahlanna.

Anyone killing HHM for his goodies? I got the squashling tonight with my mage, I <3 the squashling!!

Also, I am LOVING the achievements! It's a total waste of time, and rather pointless, but I love seeing "you've acheived ...." pop up, lol. Anyone else an achievement junkie?

Anyone download the new patch today? How long did it take you? For me it was only like 30 minutes tops.

It's exciting to see everything getting updated and ready for the WOTLK.
But what is sad I keep getting kicked off my server. . .

I'm bummed. Eh, but I guess it would be a good time to go to sleep.

I joined Live Journal a little while ago and I try to update my page everyday. I tend to get lazy, though, and end up skipping a few days before a post again. 

But yeah. I am a girl WoW player, too.

I have a 70 hunter on Korgath (don't bother looking her up. I rarely play her.) and a 70 priest on Smolderthorn who is deciently geared.

Feel free to message me in-game if you ever want to talk but be sure to send me a message through my Blog so I can give you my character's name. Also, on my blog I always post something about WoW or throw up a screenshot for the day. ^-^ So if you're interested in being my friend don't hesitate to stop by!

Hello ladies!

I posted a while ago about a dissertation research project I was doing and got some great feedback from everyone here. To refresh or recap (whatever the case may be) I posted a small questionnaire on people who had met their significant others on WoW. That was the focus of my research, but it has shifted slightly as I've done more background reading. Also, with the emergence of sites that promote dating through WoW I don't want my research to turn into an analysis of a dating site.

So, I've switched gears to looking at female identity on the game. It's been really interesting and I've even started blogging some of my observations in-game. Since it is participant observation my blogging is a little less objective than it should be.

Anyway, I would really like any of the girls on here that might be interested in the topic (I know at least one of you commented last time that you had done your dissertation on something similar) to just take a look at my blog and make any comments here or there as to your own perceptions of how you are identified in game. How are you treated? Have you noticed any differences when playing different races/classes?

My blog is at http://walking-dead.org Be gentle as I'm a little apprehensive about sharing it. It's still in the first stages and this is a relatively new thing - blogging about research. Any insight, comments, or constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.

In case you guys are interested I have a ton of characters.
70 NE hunter on Hyjal
70 BE warlock on Kil'jaeden
60 NE Hunter on Destromath
40 Draenei shammy on Hyjal
30 Undead Rogue on Kil'jaeden
20 Troll shammy on Kil'jaeden

Just to name a few!

And my boyfriend and I just took advantage of that Refer-a-Friend thing so we're trying to level as many to 60 as we can. He adores leveling way more than end-game stuff so he was all over that.

I am new to livejournal, and of course the first thing that has to be done is find the female WoW players and HAZZAH, here you guys are.  I've been playing WoW since it came out back in '04, thanks attributed to me father.  Never got serious about until this last year or so.  I am also a notorious server hopper, following me family from server to server, making it difficult to get a high level char.  I have a few in their 60's that I don't play, located on the Shadow Council server. 

My new main is:

48 Blood Elf Hunter
Skinning and Mining
Tortheldrin (US)

I would link her WoW armory, but for some reason the info is not correct.  I don't know why, but it thinks I am still in a guild that I no long belong to and I apparently still have my fishing pole equipped lol.

I am on WoW every day, logging on numerous times.  If you are located on my server, please do not hesitate to send me a message.  I love making new friends and I always enjoy having some extra company.  I'm in Feralas right now, I could sure use some consoling hehe.
