As Zapatero puts it:
To help us further in our understanding I've put together a survey to find out what people's opinions are about their own alliances and alliances in general. The survey does not ask for any character or alliance names so everything is very anonymous.So head on over to >> complete the survey <<. And this goes for anyone who's ever been part of an alliance, whether you're still in it or not.
The survey will close 10am GMT on Feb 18th. The results will be studied and used within an article we have planned for the next issue of the magazine. Soon after publication the data will be made available to the entire community.Zap, you owe me a pint!
