Yes, and almost 1/3 of the survey is about Myst, and my opinion about the game. So hard core lovers, complainers & al., time to correctly phrase your thinking without offending anyone and let GameTap know.

I just checked through my emails and have not received a survey email from GameTap. It could be a fake email. Could you contact GameTap about it and ask them if they did send a survey email just incase it is a fake email.

Elabs3.com. I did some googling to see if it's spam:

http://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg27925.html

Block by default, whitelist exceptions. They have a lot of spam lists, but also do some mailings for legitimate companies.


That didn't help at all. :?

Emailing Gametap now. The thing that strikes me as odd, though, is that they promise a gift certificate to Amazon...why not Gametap?

This is legit. I promise. They've been doing this for Gametap for some time now. Why don't they give gift certificates to Gametap? I don't know. Good question. They've always done Amazon though.

Yeah, I get Microsoft surveys at work, and they use Amazon, too. My guess is the survey firm has a working relationship with Amazon that they use to entice us, and as a closing tool to sign up Msoft, GT, etc. "We'll get 'em to do the survey with a chance to win stuff from Amazon!"

Let me at that survey!

That's good enough for me. I opened the email and did the survey.

Heh I didnt get any emails except the boasting about tomb raider. I don't have a spam folder and as far as I know my ISP doesnt block anything.

So either they only want a select few to answer them or they are still working on sending them. Its kinda strange I get emails from gametap all the time, but have never seen any of the surveys people have talked about.

Also thier sites is totally messed up. I was just there changing something is my profile and tried to go to there forum and notta.

I guess they are still fixing things /shrug

I also got the survey email, and I completed it.

Focus is on:

- What do you like, what don't you like?
- Game choices
- Videos and GameTap TV
- Customer Service
- GameTap experience and value
- Why did you subscribe?
- Would you maintain your subscription if URU was not available? (This was an interesting question)

I put in an appeal for International Access for all!

Cheers,

Dadguy

Consider yourself very lucky if GT ever sends you a survey (just make sure it's from them). I filled one out after an unsuccessful session with tech support (still waiting on getting PC games, besides MOUL, to work right) and got a $20 Amazon certificate. :)

Only in corporate America will you get paid by someone to complain about them. :D
