Hello, my name is Daniel (Professor Uponium) and I am one of the members of BronyStudy, last year we (myself and Drs Courney "Nuka" Plante and Stephen Reysen) asked the fandom to respond to an expanded survey on fan behaviors and we recieved a massive response, the results can be found here https://sites.google.com/site/bronyresearchproject/ and hopefully soon in a number of publications we have submitted to various journals. I really want to pass on our thanks and continued support for the brony community.

Today I (along with Drs Reysen and Plante) would like to ask everypony's help on this new survey launching what is the second wave in our expansion of the initial BronyStudy research and further understanding of fandom and group identity. This survey will aid in collecting general information about the fandom and it's relation to other fan communities that have been examined and surveyed in the published literature.

For your time and participation in this survey, you will be eligible to enter your e­mail into a draw for the chance to win one of several $50 gift certificates to Amazon.com (your odds of winning the gift card are based on the number of entries and are estimated at 1 in 200). Your email entry will not be linked to your responses in any way to preserve your anonymity.
