UPDATE: The results of the poll are now available to view!

Last summer, I did my first-ever poll of RyanSchultz.com blog readers, asking them to tell me on which social VR/virtual worlds they had a user account (the results of that poll were published here).

However, several people pointed out that simply creating a user account on a particular platform did not necessarily indicate that it was actually being used. So today I am launching a new reader poll, asking:

What Social VR/Virtual World Do You Spend the Most Time In?

Last time, you could (obviously) pick more that one answer. But this time, I am asking you to narrow it down to one choice. Which single social VR platform or virtual world do you spend the most time in?

If you need more information about any of the platforms listed in this poll, please refer to my List of Social VR/Virtual Worlds.

I have deliberately not included those platforms which have not yet launched, e.g. Decentraland. I realize that there can be a somewhat fuzzy line about what constitutes “launched”, what with alphas and betas and such, but I’m pretty confident that this is the most comprehensive list of currently-available social VR platforms and virtual worlds out there. In the unlikely case that I have forgotten about a platform, readers will be able to type in their own answer in an “other” field.

Please note that, this time around, all OpenSim-based and OpenSim-spinoff-based (e.g. Halcyon) grids are ONE SINGLE CATEGORY in this poll. Please do NOT put the specific name of your OpenSim grid (e.g. Kitely, Discovery Grid, Amaryllis Grid etc.) in the “other” field! I am seeing a lot of this already!!!

This time I will keep the poll open one week, closing it at midnight on February 28th, 2019, after which time I will release the poll results and post to the blog about the results. Repeat voters will be blocked by website cookie and IP address. You will not be able to see the results of this poll until March at the earliest.

UPDATE Feb. 22nd: I have decided to change the deadline for this poll from a whole month to just seven days (mainly because I cannot block repeat voters for longer than a week). The new deadline for this poll is now midnight, February 28th, 2019.
