[INFO] By the Numbers: Upcoming Themes Survey Outcome!

Postby Viking Mark » Tue Nov 20, 2018 5:32 pm

Hey YoFans!

Some time ago, in this thread, we made a promise to begin sharing survey results with all of you. To recap...
Viking Mark wrote:More Transparency on Survey Results: moving forward, we will be posting a high-level overview of the survey results for each theme survey, so players have a better understanding of which themes received the most support and what they can expect to come down the pipeline in the coming months!

Many of you may recall recently completing a survey to help us choose our upcoming themes, including the time around St Patrick's Day and Easter...

Which means, friends, that it's time to deliver on that promise! :hug:

Okay ready? Here we go!

Non-holiday themes:

St. Patrick's Day:

Easter:

Quick note: posted above are general interest numbers taken directly from survey responses. These results are a relatively good indication of where our analysis will have ended up, but we do have a couple of other factors that play into which themes are planned, and when. A theme shown here with lower interest will be less likely to make an appearance in our upcoming themes, but it isn't ruled out entirely. :)

Won't the people who voted for Icelandic Escape be surprised when the house is an ice prison with cube chairs and no yard. :angel:

I kind of want to push for this to happen now, just for you ;)


DISCLAIMER: THE ABOVE IS A JOKE. I would not do this, nor would the team. There is exactly zero conscious decision to have themes turn out differently from how you imagined them based on the survey, which is exactly why it's proving so difficult to rectify. This thread is one part of working toward better things for all of you :heart:

No, they're confusing it with Greenland.

I like this transparent approach. Hope it helps people finally see "Where did that theme come from I didn't for it".
This is what the players are voting for loud and clear.

Is it wrong to not feel bad for the people who don't get that your reply is a joke? :shocked:

As an aside, this cowboy did vote for the Icelandic Escape and he has HUGE expectations for what it could be. I will line up 500 images awaiting Mark's follow up Sticky asking for input. LOL

Ah - I'm happy that's not happening! I'm just sad about Edinburgh :(

I really hope it comes to fruition eventually, if done right, it could be a beautiful theme ;) :hug:

It's kinda bittersweet :haha:

I hope people are ready to gear up for even more virtual farming :silly:, relaxing at a retreat :sleeping:, and/or escaping to Iceland :cold:. Paranormal investigation & Cyberpunk were the themes I had the most interest in from the poll. I'm glad it held interest in the poll for Paranormal Investigation, and hopefully it has a shot at least. I was hoping Cyberpunk had a better shot but maybe next year people can try again to get it for the third time. Thanks for the transparency in posting the poll's results like was requested. I'm happy to have played a part in trying to make the choices become a reality.

So people voted for ANOTHER farm? :shocked:

Unbelievable.... :dizzy:

If I wanted so many farm themes, I would play Farm Ville... Does it still exist? :?:
