At what university are you conducting your research? In what field? Could you please tell us about your research in more detail? What are you trying to demonstrate/explore with this survey? And, crucially, do you have approval from your institution's IRB or other authority to conduct research on human subjects?

Fandom has been burned more than once by people claiming to be conducting academic research. The last time, it turned out to be in the service of a non-academic book making all kinds of sexist claims about male and female sexuality based in part upon a hideously designed, intrusive survey that they asked fandom people to take.

The lack of concrete information in your post makes me nervous, and I certainly won't take your survey before I see your response to these questions.
