Nexon America’s Q3 2013 Approval Rating Survey

The survey is now closed. I fell way behind in keeping up with the responses so it’ll take several days before I post the results.

This survey will give us a quick idea of how the community feels about how Nexon America is currently running its games. I request that survey takers focus mostly on the running of the game over the past three months. The survey will run from October to October 13, 2013.

No specific personal information is required to be given. Some personal information such as age is requested so I can know who is taking the survey.If you feel uncomfortable with any of the questions required (and I don’t see why anyone would be) then don’t take the survey. The survey first seeks to create a demographic idea of who’s taking the survey, what they may be basing their rating on, how qualified they may be to rate the company. It then asks you for your opinion on Nexon and reasons for that opinion (reasons optional).

The survey is eight questions long and should take no more than two minutes to complete. You’ll be required to provide a contact email address only if you’re interested in having a chance to win up to 25,000 NX. Many will enter, very few (three) will win.
