I understand but my experience let us me think it's fine if you don't feel comfortable with Qualtrics. So let's say I answered this poll frankly, who'd you imagine gets that data? After GDPR I have felt pressured with every single website ever to track and track me it is disgusting, and even disgusting that it was happening before without my understanding. Taking a look at the survey connection and the basic disclosures in the bottom of the webpage it does not seem the Jagex is having a third party fielding company so if the only men and women who would have immediate access to your advice would be the survey developers who will pull exports out of the database to distribute internally. EU also has some pretty strong data privacy legislation which (at least my US based firm which frequently interacts with Qualtrics connections ) are followed pretty strictly from the survey developers and information hosting sites.
After running through the survey Jagex definitely is apparently running solo on this one. No third party firm would allow participants directly enter in their contact information (since it would mean they would lose your business to their customer [not a nefarious thing]) and the only area I found kinda strange was that the phone number request in the conclusion. I'd have substituted that with a check box for recontacting and pipe-in the email you could optionally have put in sooner for confirmation. I think you are fine answering this questionnaire if you have privacy concerns since basically all information is anonymous and it is using an industry-standard platform of Qualtrics. Jagex probably doesn't have market study ISO certifications but hey this is a fast annual survey so they wouldn't have to have any.
I hope this feedback encourages the staff to make surveys more targeted to the audience who knowingly participate in the content they are polling, or use them as an advisory tool instead of a judgment. It'd be interesting if they reveal a few of the outcomes of the survey. I replied the opposite, that polling is in the crux of OSRS and they should stick with it. For clarity, I also answered that polling is at the core of OSRS. The survey system empowers the entire playerbase to start freeform conversation on the proposed changes/additions created to Runescape itself and it is absolutely a great way to collect feedback and people comment on something. With that said, I really don't believe the present format satisfies the best interests of Runescape.
I really don't believe that the player base is very great at determining which content, based on virtue, is great for the overall health and integrity of Runescape long term. Based on polling, the community liked 6hr NMZ but it was important to remove. Players do not vote for any modifications which make things tougher for them but over time which becomes a drawback as content becomes easier and achievements are diluted, these can very slight but easily add up.
Another example is PvP and PK related adjustments that are voted against. People even voted against allowing pures wear lucky chaps, despite having the ability to wear the normal variations. The only impact of the to accounts that were normal would have been to marginally boost the demand and so improve profits from clue scrolls. This isn't an illustration of polling fulfilling the interests of Runescape, it's just a meme of not enjoying pures. If we only see updates which match the exact same 75 percent of people every time the remaining 25% become more and more marginalised, which isn't a good balance when those 75/25 are seemingly so frequently the very same people.
