Woot!

They need to fix the spelling - it's MapTool. One word. But awesome, nonetheless!

Good to see them being a little proactive. The content of the questions indicates that they are grappling with the changing face of how people game.
Maptool is the Millennium Falcon of VTT's -- "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts."

I didn't get to see the Maptool question, probably because I answered "I don't play Dungeons and Dragons" on the first screen.

I put rptools.net as the referral for the survey myself.

True, but the questions still didn't relate very well to how I game. Unfortunately, there was no general comments area to tell them how to get a clue in that regard. :)

Hehe, there was an "Other" option, with a text box, on one of the questions ("How do you use your computer when you DM?" I think) that I totally abused for that purpose.

Just took the survey and they appear to have done that!

I wish they had a comments section!

I admit it.
I took the survey and lied. I did it for MapTools though, is that alright? I lied and said I played and DMed D&D, but said I used MapTool every time. I knew if I put that I did not play D&D they would ignore my answers as one of Those Who Have Fallen, but if I said I used their product, perhaps they would listen a little more, sniffing a potential purchase.

I am not proud of it, but darn it, I did it!

Excellent !
I took the survey and put maptool and rptools.net everywhere I could (without lying mind you ;) )
And I'm getting my players and fellow DMers into responding to the survey too.
