Retraction: 10 questions on anime, fandom, and the creative process

You may recognize this questionnaire from an earlier post at this community. However, I have since realized that I made a grave error when posting my questionnaire. I posted the wrong version of my consent letter. I have since deleted the posts that contain it, and have sent the approved version of the consent letter to those who were kind enough to participate. Note: If you participated with the incorrect version, your answers will not be used and your identity will remain protected. I only hope that others will still consider participating with the correct edition of the consent letter. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

And since the best thing to do with a mistake is to admit that you made it, here goes. This is the real deal.

Note: The consent letter says that participation in this study should last no longer than an hour, but if you feel like you want to take more time answering it, that is fine. It is intended to analyze the creative process among both fans and professionals (and even those who are both), and the questions are open-ended enough to stimulate internal dialogue.
