Bandslash fandom community survey

The following survey is open for all fans who participate in some way in a band fiction community (you write, you read, run a community, etc.) We don't care if it's rockband fic, emo-band fic, popslash, whatever, all of your input is desired. If you don't understand a question or terminology, don't stop or feel like you have to look stuff up, we want your first impressions, how you would answer these questions based on your familiarity with these terms and ideas now.

Please feel free to pass the link to this post along to communities where it might be appropriate, and also to leave comments if you feel you couldn't answer questions properly with a check box choice.
