I am doing a modding related research

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Hi everyone! 
My name is Jan and I am a student from Hamburg, Germany. I am currently working on my bachelor’s thesis which aims to analyse perceived quality of video game mods among gamers and modders. 

Due to prior research I have reasons to believe that modders have a very divergent perception of the quality than the "average" gamer. I am trying to prove this with a quantitative experiment:

I would really appreciate you taking part in my little, completely anonymous experiment. It should take you no longer than 5 minutes to complete. I am also raffling of 10x10 EUR (or the equivalent if not EU) steam gift cards among participants.

Thank you very much for your support. If you have any questions or if you are interested in the theoretical framework of my thesis, please let me know!

Please note that I have gained permission to post this here.

    Hey there, I am from Germany too! Very interesting topic, especially as you can see this being discussed regularly on the forums.

    Good luck with your thesis and if you have any further questions I would happily assist.

    Oh I'd love to contribute. Tho, from how many mods, it is related to independent standalone mods or does it includes skins and maps as well?

    Tho some of the questions it asked, makes me doubt it's safe at all.
    Forget what I've said

    I have answered it, though I do have some feedback regarding the questions themselves. Perhaps asking questions about how a mod would "perform" are not as well suited for what is presented unless the intent is for that to be judged solely by the listings for mods on the user's profile, given you would have to actually download a mod to judge that and there would be no way to know that based solely on an image of the mod. In a similar vein, questions relating to "trustworthiness" can't realistically be judged by presented information unless it is solely based on the profile image (which does not show any conversation or anything similar).
