New Poll Update

Posted by LewaLew , Mar 12 2011 · 116 views

A few questions were raised by TN05 concerning the validity of using this poll as a reference for how much BZPower really likes HF. My reply contains a few of the more specific goals of the poll, as well as a few of the newer stats.
QUOTE(TN05 @ Mar 12 2011, 04:26 PM)

I have a few problems with the assumption that, based on the poll, the majority loves Hero Factory:

For one, this assumes interests are mutually exclusive - similar to arguing over whether Coke or Pepsi is better. One can like both Coke and Pepsi, just like one can like both HF and BIONICLE, so a more fair and valid poll in my mind would be 'Do you like Hero Factory better than BIONICLE' or 'Would you have rather LEGO released HF alongside BIONICLE' - it would show more, I think.

Also, another interesting statistic is that a plurality (46.67) of voters prefer Slizers to Hero Factory in a similar poll. smile.gif

Aside from those, I personally take the polls to mean most people are OK with Hero Factory, but would rather have either Slizers or BIONICLE instead - and considering this is a site targeted at young kids (13 and under), this does not surprise me. smile.gif


That's why in the poll I asked people to answer based on their opinion of Hero Factory without regard to BIONICLE. I want to know what they think of HF simply as HF, not as BIONICLE's successor. They already did a HF-BIONICLE poll.

I'm not asking about Slizers, I'm asking about HF. Obviously, there will be some who will judge based on how HF compares to BIONICLE, simply because they don't like to read the starter post, but usually, that's only the dislikers, I've found.

Uh, yeah. That's what it means. I don't know why you thought it was supposed to mean that everyone loves it. Only the percentage that said "I'm a big fan" are counted for that.

Strangely enough, though, at this point, there are only ten fewer self-proclaimed "big fans" than the entire number who said they disliked it at all. (61 total dislikers, 51 "big fans")

There are also a total of 186 people who said they were on the "likers" side of the spectrum.

So, out of the 301 members who voted, that's a pretty strong majority of likers, and they are almost in danger of being outnumbered by the "big fans" alone.

In addition, 42 said they didn't care, and 12 nulled. You do the math to figure out percentages--I'm a little busy. I will tell you that 62% are on the Liker's side of the spectrum, while only 20% are on the dislike side.

Honestly, it makes sense to have a (seemingly) overwhelming majority supporting, given most people on here are probably under 13.

Actually, I believe BZP is primarily over 13. It used to be under 13, but the fanbase gets older. (Plus COPPA came along and made BZP even more over 13. tongue.gif )

Either way, there's nothing wrong with that. All the people on the Thee Virtues podcast are obviously over 13 by the sound of their voices, and all the BZP staff is over 13, and all of them are on the "like" side (even if it is only mildly), so there are plenty over 13 that like it as well.

Howdy Folks!

I'm LewaLew, former BZPower RK, former Reporter, and former unofficial baseball blogger. Once, this blog served as the home of my primarily baseball-related musings. Now that I'm in college, I have little time for baseball and BZPower, so it sits here idle except for an occasional visit on my part. Please enjoy or cringe at what you read from my past, and if you'd like, go ahead and comment in the favorite baseball teams entry so that the next time a blue moon rolls around and I visit, I can add you to that content block.

Play Well!

For those of you who don't know (which would mean everyone but Aho-Chan and Sumiki) the BaseBlog is beyond a blog, this is beyond baseball it's a blog that focuses on the great American sport of baseball. The idea of a baseball themed blog has actually been in the works by me ever since Super Bowl XLIV, when Aho-Chan posted a blog entry asking if anyone besides himself didn't care for the Super Bowl, to which I suddenly got the idea of a baseball-themed blog so I could talk about my favorite sport without waiting for someone else to post in the Official Baseball Topic in the Completely Off Topic forum.

Play Ball, folks.
