I am researching about Game Transfer Phenomena for my PhD project and I would appreciate if you could forward this message to members in your group.
The survey takes approximately 10 min. Participants should play video games and be 18 years old or older.
GTP is the transfer of video game experiences to the real world; like hearing, seeing or doing things in real life based on what the gamer heard, saw or did in the game.
In the first GTP study some players reported seeing text boxes above peoples’ heads, seeing images of video games when trying to sleep, wanted to use video games elements in real life or suddenly doing a behaviour or action as in the video games without intending to do so.
The purpose of my project is clarify players' phenomenological experiences through explaining why, when and how GTP occurs, in order to maximize the benefits of interactive media and contribute to different areas of the sciences.
In the survey you can read other players experiences and check if you have experienced GTP and what types.
You are welcome to visit my website where you can find more information about the GTP project, join my Facebook group and check out my blog.

Here are some articles if you want to read more about GTP:
This is a group for people who refer to themselves (or have been referred to by others) as Geeks.
…or any other miscellaneously mis-fitting, socially non-conforming term that can't be classified as being considered "mainstream" (as if anyone really knows what THAT is), and probably isn't nearly as derogatory today as it was a few decades back, because, these days, we're taking over the WORLD, man!
'Cause we RULE now!
(Safety in numbers, friends! ;)
In other words, this here's a consortium of a populace who knows how to take people seriously, but life and themselves lightly.
This is not MENSA.
We just throw in the benefit of the doubt and assume that you're interested in meeting others who like to think outside the box,
…or whatever other polygonal analogy best floats yer boat.
If you like to do something a little off-the-wall, bonus. But we just say that because we're circus folks. If you're not, then maybe you like to put together robots or something. Or perhaps you're working on the cure for cancer. Then again, possibly you're just nice to turtles, who knows? No matter, whatever... it's all good. Different strokes for different folks, eh? We don't judge, and we won't bite. (Well, not unless you ask nicely, that is! >:)
We're all adults, and are more than capable of creating our own safe & sane fun, however silly. This site has been designed simply to help facilitate that aim.
(Aheh-rms... Wow... that was kinda intellectual-sounding... in fact nerdish, even, one might say!)
If you have a particular "themed" style of gathering you'd like to take over, let us know, and we'll get you started.
Ergo, and sum, join if interested...
...be wild, be free, let your hair down, put your feetup,and let's play!
