Have you completed the Nerdfighteria Census yet? Answer these 30 or so questions to let us know how we can best move forward as a community and how the stuff nerdfighters make can be useful to you. Thanks so much!
John and I were talking yesterday and we realized that, though we have a somewhat distinct and ever-changing image of what Nerdfighteria is and who it is composed of, we aren’t precisely sure whether or not that image is correct.
Basically, there are a lot of things we don’t know about the people who watch our videos and the people who consider themselves Nerdfighters. We want to change that, so we’ve put together a 30-something question survey.
- It is not required that you answer all of the questions, but we would like as many people as possible to respond so that we can better understand the world we inhabit
- We will, of course, not sell any of this information to anyone. We choose to ask you for information rather than attempting to collect it without your knowledge (through cookes, or whatever.)
- Your responses will be confidential and not tied to any name.
- We may, however, make public information about Nerdfighteria, but it won’t be connected at all to your name and there won’t be any way to trace it back to you.
Again, the more people take the time (it’ll take more than 10 minutes and less than half an hour) to fill this out, the better Nerdfighteria will be. It’ll also help us make decisions like…what kind of content should we produce and where should we go on tour. So, if you don’t take the survey, your voice won’t be counted!

DO THE THING!
My name is Mariana and I’ve been a Nerdfighter since 2008. I’m currently writing my master thesis about participation and culture in online communities, and decided to do a case study about Nerdfighteria.
I chose this community because I believe there is a lot to learn from its unique history and dynamics. Nerdfighteria has shown time and again that it is capable of reaching great goals, and I think it is important to explore and understand how it does so. With that in mind, I prepared a survey that inquires about Nerdfighter culture and Nerdfighters’ participatory behavior in order to better understand the inner workings of this community… And now I need YOUR help.
If you watch Vlogbrothers’ videos and consider yourself a Nerdfighter (or not!), please take the time to take my survey. It takes around 15-20 minutes to fill out, and you would be helping me out enormously.
You can find the survey here.
Once I finish my study, I will be sure to share my findings on Tumblr.
Please feel free to message me if you have any questions about the questionnaire or my research at all.
Thank you all so much, and DFTBA!!!
If you have a few minutes, please help out Mariana!
