Poll Results Summary

Posted by: </a></b></a>

While the poll was designed for the Back to Middle-earth Month moderators to have an idea of what participants want in the future, we thought you might like to have a summary of some of the data.

68 people took the poll, 35 of whom participated in B2MeM this year. Of those 35, nine people were new to B2MeM! The majority of people followed the prompts on Dreamwidth, though 17% preferred following them on Tumblr. Just under three-fourths of participants used the Dreamwidth community to participate, though most people used multiple sites such as AO3, Tumblr, and SWG. A slim minority participated only in B2MeM, while a slim majority participated in more than one fandom event in February, March, or April.

Please contact us at b2mem.mod@gmail.com if you want to see the raw data.

We want to reiterate our appreciation for taking the poll! Thank you! If you want a response to your feedback or to discuss an idea, please contact us at b2mem.mod@gmail.com.

This winter, keep an eye on this Dreamwidth, Livejournal, or Tumblr for information about our 2019 event. We hope to see you there!
