What's Happening

The 2012 GIO Census

(Thanks to Cybertronian Assassin for the fantastic banner)

UPDATE: There are only three more days left in the Census! It all ends on the 31st, so get out there and vote! The participation so far has been great, but with your help, it can be even better. 

A few of reminders:

Question #31 has been removed from the Census. This gives you, the voter, more time to participate. (And also ensures my safety from disgruntled editors)

Look for the recap blog to go up early January. This jumble of statistics will include many a graph, thoughts on the results, and quotes from the voters.

If for any reason something doesn't work for you, or if you just have a question, shoot me a message and I'll try my best to help you out. 

So please, take a few minutes of your time and make this project a success. 


Ever wonder just how many people are on Gameinformer Online? This is a project that will (hopefully) answer that question, and maybe a few others as well. Think of it as a sort of census; a series of polls that paint a much clearer picture of the GIO landscape.

The gist is this: starting today and then once a day thereafter, a question in the form of a poll will be posted in the forum section for the rest of the site to vote on. Voting lasts until the 31st of December, after which the results will be tallied, and this blog updated.

Naturally, the success of these polls depends entirely upon the amount of people participating, and their willingness to cast a vote every day. That said, I'm confident that the community will create enough of a turn out to give us a well rounded (if not complete) view of our favorite site.

The goal of all this is to give us an idea of how our favorite site changes from year to year. Whether the number of GIOers increases one year, or the Wii U becomes the console of choice the next, stats like these can be as useful as they are fascinating.
