LL has issued another e-mail survey and it is, in a word – bizarre. It appears to be aimed towards users new to Second Life – as I actually received it via an account I set-up to poke my nose at the “new” Destination Islands, and I’ve yet to receive anything through my main account. However, given the way LL break-up mail-outs over several days, this may yet change.
A bland e-mail announced the survey, giving very little information away:
Following the link lead to a question:
Quite reasonable for a start. Except responding to the question pops-up this:
That’s it. The entire survey.
I’ve no idea what it is in aid of. Are LL tracking avatars sitting on the Destination Islands? If so, why? The last time I created a “throwaway” and attempted to leave it on a Destination Island, it appeared to get randomly shunted on – why I logged to check on DI progress, I wound up on the grid itself. So it doesn’t seem likely this is to do with sweeping-out the Destination Islands. As it is, the current throwaway is still on a DI, and I’ll be checking again later today to see if it does get shunted elsewhere.
If this is a means of measuring user retention, then it seems somewhat … brief.
One really cannot say any more than that. Will update this post if there are any developments and / or if I get the survey via my main account.
Anyone else received the same?
