Hello, my name is Greta and I'm doing a survey about The Sims community communication on twitter and how The Sims gained their popularity.
The purpose is to study the tactics, algorythms, coomunication between creators and their fans and how people feel being in The Sims community.
This survey is anonymous and not obligatory, however your answers would help a lot in achieving the results for this study. You can see the results once the survey is submitted, but all personal information will be kept confidential.
If you decide to fill this survey out it will be appreciated and if you have any questions you can contact me on: [email protected]
Have you ever had glitches in your game? Have you ever shared about these glitches to others? Friend/ family circle? Social Media Platforms?
I have had glitches in my game, the most upsetting is that after an update my game history tends to get wiped.
I message Sims 4 on social media but I didn't post about it
Yes I have experience some glitches, but have not shared about those because have been about gameplay and I don't play the Sims really for it's gameplay, I like to create sims and build stuff, and those have not given me glitches at all.
Have had glitches, didnt share
I've had glitches but not shared them.
Yes I have had glitches, but I haven’t complained on social media. I have moaned to my boyfriend and family.
I have had glitches in game. I don’t share about it online. I would only speak to people in person when talking about the game.
Yes and yes. Usually fb or Twitter.
Yes. I haven't shared about them but I do read forums about people who have similar problems to see how they solved them. I wouldn't comment though
Yes, I have experienced glitches in my game especially since I play on console. If it's a funny glitch I'll share it with my friends via snapchat. It's its more serious, I'll ask other people I know that play if they are experiencing the same.
I've definitely had glitches and I have shared my frustration mostly to friends and family. I use the social media platforms to research issues and possible work around for the glitches.
Yes and no I dont share
Yes sometimes, I usually tell my friends
So many glitches, currently they won't stop making de-stress concoctions on the grills and every grill in all the parks has circles of these on the ground. There's also the T pose on the surgery table at the hospital, before it was constantly baking white cakes. I have shared the stress concoctions with my husband and shared in a SIMS groups on Facebook.
No one I know plays sims, I’ll share some of the funny glitches with my husband but normally just keep to myself.
Yes, though I've been lucky to not have had some of the more detrimental glitches others have experienced, so my game has never been unplayable, just annoying at times.
Yes, and I have used social media to try to find bug fixes and other methods of addressing these glitches. This has been mostly effective.
So many bugs and glitches. I rarely share personally, because other people are having the same issues and I don't want to be a repeat poster, but I've been in many comment threads commiserating and troubleshooting.
Not in The Sims 4. I got glitches more often in The Sims 3 and I would share online looking for help.
Yes my game glitches, however I have not voiced this to anyone
