I’m doing a research project for my anthropology class. The project is an ethnography, which is a study of people in a particular group or community, what brings them together, what types of people are in the group, and what kinds of symbols/rituals they have. I decided to do my ethnography on the BF community, b/c I simply believe this community’s worth studying and it’s different and interesting. Below are some survey-like questions. Feel free to answer any or all of the questions; if some answers are not what you have in mind, write your own answer. Also feel free to add comments about your experiences in the BF community and/or you can flame me too. ;-) If you write a comment, you may be quoted in my ethnography; credit will be given where credit’s due, of course. The survey takes about five minutes. Please try to answer honestly. I appreciate any comments you make, and thanks for your time.

1) Which of the following best describes you in the BF community? a. Clan member b. Modder c. Fansite staff member d. None of the above 2) Which of the following best describes you as a player? a. Not a bad player, but not the best either b. Noob c. 1337 d. Whiner – yeah, DC lags, but hey, it’s Final ;-) e. Movie maker – you like to make machinima f. Stuntman (or Stuntwoman) g. Haxorz h.

Finding a dedicated team b. Finding personal time c. Learning the tools – 3dsmax, Photoshop, Battlecraft, etc. d. Trial and error – debugging and feedback 8) If you’re a clan member, what is the name of your clan and why? (Free response) 9) What do you expect the most from EA/DICE? a. Less bugs b.
