    Understanding abbreviations: gamers vs non-gamers. Short survey

    Hello!

    I need your help in answering a short anonymous survey. The overall results will be used in my bachelor’s thesis. Please spare couple minutes to provide your honest opinion. Your help is much appreciated and valued. Thank you for your time!

    I'm partial to a survey or 2...

    I only have 1 question, is n00b actually an abbreviation? I thought it was just leet speak (I know that the variant of "Newb" being an abbreviation of "Newbie"... But "Noob", "Nub", "N00b" and other variations have a different meaning)

    ... Gamers have way too many words for insulting people...
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    Three of those questions needed context. For example gm. Could be general manager, game moderator, or game master. Filled it out for you (I included context in my answers that I felt needed it)

    It might be a good idea to try making another survey that includes these abbreviations and comparing it to the results you've gotten. Try throwing in false abbreviations too.


    At the above it is leetspeak. Depends on the context. Could be an insult, stating the guy is ignorant, or that the guy is a new player.

    You needed to specify LFM was a term specific to WoW, I've never played WoW (ironically) and thus I had to look it up. Other than that, here you go fam.
    Poseidon is now rocking #sideboobs. But don't let this distract you from the fact that Chang'e is supposed to be stuck on the moon getting high on LSD with her rabbit friends.

    Don't listen to me unless on days when I drink coffee. I'm a retard when my brain isn't chugging.

    I may or may not redo the Morrigan thread because am too lazy. Sorrymasen.

    I'm pretty sure LFM is a specific term to all MMORPGs.

    Ah. Asked a friend who's big into WoW and he told me that so I just assumed it was specific to it only, I didn't play MMORPGs long enough to know that.
