(6) Disney Movies! (Survey by James Mason)

`Do you loathe Disney films? Do you love Disney films? Do you not give two hoots about Disney films? Do you know anyone who could answer yes to any of these questions? Then this questionnaire is for you!

As part of my PhD research into adult audiences and their relationships with Disney films (which are synonymous with children’s entertainment) I have put together an online questionnaire for anyone over the age of 18 to complete. It doesn’t matter whether respondents like, love, or loathe Disney films, all responses are welcome.’ (Mason 2016)

The Disney Films questionnaire is open until the end of July 2016 and can be accessed here: https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/disney-surve

(7) The Simulation Survey

A survey for Game Developers, about whether you believe our universe is a Simulation (e.g. as per, say, Bostrom 2003).
