Poll results

From 1 May 2014 to 29 August 2014, the following nine polls ran on Gaia. All of them got over two 1,500 votes and it’s time to present the results.

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 7

The numbers are almost exactly the same as in the same poll running on Sandra and Woo. I find this surprising since the comics are very different from each other and the comments on Gaia are often more focused on the overall plot instead of the specific update.

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 8

Almost nobody used the bookmark buttons so I removed them some time ago.

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 9

Compared to the same poll running on Sandra and Woo, there are a little less hardcore webcomic fans among the Gaia readers. Over 50% of our readers read between 4 and 12 webcomics which I would describe as the “average” range.

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 10

Compared to the same poll running on Sandra and Woo, the readers of Gaia are significantly older. However, the Sandra and Woo poll ran from 19 August 2011 to 21 December 2011, so the average age of the Sandra and Woo readers might also have increased in the meantime. I am still older than over 80% of our readers, though.

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 11

Compared to the same poll running on Sandra and Woo, there are 8% more readers with a bachelor degree and 5% more with a masters degree. Of course, this goes hand in hand with the increased average age of our readership. I find it remarkable that 4% of our readers have a PhD or are even professors. We really have some highly educated folk among our readers ;).

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 12

Compared to the same poll running on Sandra and Woo, Gaia has 7% fewer women reading it. I find this quite surprising since fantasy is usually a popular genre among women and Gaia has three major female characters. I wonder why not more women are reading it…

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 13

This is a quite even distribution. But (relatively) new readers are currently the majority.

Poll from 1 May 2014:

Poll Nr. 14

Compared to the same poll running on Sandra and Woo, Gaia has a little fewer people calling it one of their absolute favorite comics. However, the numbers are still great, even when one considers that casual readers may not have participated in the poll.

Poll from 10 August 2014:

Poll Nr. 15

Lilith and Viviana have made their way into the hearts of our readers. Good, good. ;) Apparently, there is also a significant number of straight girls who’d marry one of them. (Remember that 27% of our readers are female.)
