I need YOUR help, imgur...
Alright, so heres the backstory. I'm a junior in high school. I finally got into this super competitive program that will publish my research, but only if I get enough responses. I posted my survey a while, and I only got 8 so far. I usually don't like to do this kind of stuff, but desperate times call for desperate measures, I've seen wonders worked on imgur. Please help me. I will do whatever top comment says if I get anything remotely close to 100, as long as its legal and my parents are okay with it. Please imgur, I'm all out of options tldr; OP needs help getting survey responses from athletes or people who play sports to get into a super competitive program. Hes ready to do whatever top comment says. Here's the link --> https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSepQTZG_GAe4Hmkou5nlGXY0OagzYC1jzqcl57glVvgXcPyow/viewform?usp=sf_link EDIT #1- HOLY MOLY I JUST WOKE UP AND IM AT 6,500 I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO!!! I'm just trying to find some animal shelters now! Thank you guys so much for helping me out, I'm sure to make a post about the research and the animal shelter if you imgurians want! EDIT #2- Alrite so I was going through the responses and some guy used a bot (i'm guessing) and submitted like 3,000 responses, so I had to clear that up, so its around 3,500 now BUT ITS STILL FRICKIN AWESOME!!!!

Sigh, let's help @op god damn it, do your part pieces of shit.
Top comment: Work a day at an animal shelter.
Ok, you buy pizza for the top 5 comments.
Ohh, I like how pizza guy works.
I did the survey, and as you are obviously smart enough to ask permission before doing anything i suggest cooking your parents breakfast.
This isn't the kind of research I usually come to Imgur to conduct...
I helped my fee is an upvote
Don’t masterbate for a week.
Can I participate if I like to play sports, but I'm just bad at them?
Top comment sniff finger used to itch butt in front of panel of research panelists
Problem 1 internet folk don't go outside
I gave you 3, for each of the sports I play or have played. Hope that helps
does marathons of browsing tumblr, 9gag, and imgur count as athleticism?
you need athletes to complete your survey and you're asking imgurians. this is why you have 8 responses.
There ya go, homie
Keep pursuing shit! Done and done my friend. Hopefully my answers don't fuck up data
Foam isn't the probem with safety gear, the problem with safety gear is that it needs to compensate for the other guy using his as a weapon.
Yes but post results of day with animals.
Done, hope you get what you need.
I got you, homie!
As a former football player who required brain surgery a few year after graduating, please think of all possibilities when adjusting gear.
Looks like a young Pj Harvey
This. Clicked the link, read the prompt, and immediately backed out.
This should be top comment. Great idea.
Passed this along to my two HS Lax players. Said they’ll fwd it to their teammates. One already took the survey. Hope it helps!
I like that we can be family friendly when needed. Good job being appropriate imgur
I did my part +1
Answered @OP, good luck from Mexico
Yeah I play Gaelic Football...its kinda like rugby...theres no padding...also I broke 2 ribs last year...maybe there should padding
Athletic survey from Imgurians? I can’t stop laughing! If you win, enter a turtle in a race (or dachshund).
Sorry no sports but I bumped you, best of luck!
I took the survey, hope it helps you out!
How many more do you need OP? I got friends
I got ya fam
Drop out of school and go live in the woods
What's the Ihwe answer?
Ok I did it, but 12 oz. curls don't seem like the sport you're looking for.
Post a picture of your mom's tits.
Doing my part! Good luck UP!
OP* damn autocorrect...
Ehhh. I’m a soccer player but I wear the dinkiest sized shin guards. Definitely not what you’re meant to wear.
Did my part but I don't get why you referred to rugby as football.
There should also have been a question for the reduction or increasing of pads in the sport.
Fart on your dog, or your neighbors dog if you don’t have one
Soccer player here. Did my part. Good luck op.
I would have helped out, but it's about which sport(s) I play. The most active thing I do is jump to conclusions. Sorry, OP. Good luck.
Completed the survey as an adult female soccer player.
Meh, it's highschool level. If he has this much enthusiasm by his senior year of college he should do fine.
I second this motion! All in favor?
This piece of shit had done its part. Shitty high five/hug?
Yea me too but I also wear a cup
Ha, I happen to be both. However I recognize that I'm a minority.
No hockey option.. must be southern or uk... ,Yes hockey gear sucks..... No i would never play without it!fn
Lol. I tried to help and got to the question "what sports do you play?" And had to recuse myself
All done Good luck!
And if OP don't know this it's not promising....
hope i helped, dont play sports anymore but i answered based on the last sport i did play
I would have helped but I don’t sports
Completed my part. Good luck, OP!
Done. If this becomes top comment I request you do Sugar Ray at karaoke.
Done. Curious to see if you get there. Godspeed @Op
Oh I chose other, wrote hockey and then added all my extra gear where appropriate.
If we make this a big viral thing i bet OP will have his pick of colleges and scholarships. I hope that's true. In which case we want a post
Question 6 needs revision. Answers dont make sense for the question asked. I would maybe do (1 some (2 all (3 none
of his acceptance into college.
I got you fam. Although hard to relate to the questions when we don't wear protective gear in Rugby.
Former competitive swimmer here. Totally the minority here.
so its a minority report? . I too am both
Done. Should probably say what the survey is about in the post though.
I will ride to ops aid.
Thats what I was thinking, but then I thought at least SOME of us must have done the sports ball at some point...
Consider it done, my good sir/madam
Yes I do see my fault in that now
Completed! I only play netball so hopefully my answers help you. Good luck!
Shits about to get wholesome up in this bitch
I will do that
I have never heard of that, seems pretty dangerous
I did get there. Actually i went way past there
I’ll think about it
Find it within yourself
Eh prolly not
I did the survey :)
@OP please let us know how many responses you get from this (: took the survey, hope we helped!
Maybe 5 people of everyone on imgur is an athlete
129, nicely done.
I actually got around 930 as of right now
I am so happy
Start volunteering regularly at an animal shelter!
Well that was a short survey. Would you let us know when you're at 100 responses?
almost 20k views, I'm sure you're gonna get a lot of responses. Also lil peeved I had to put basketball as an "other" sport....
Done, hope it goes well for you, OP!
Best of luck OP. I played several sports going through grade school, so I hope I was able to help.
Revolutionizing sports by using no protection? That word choice lol
I say work 100, 1 for each response
I don't play sports...
Current non competitive open water swimmer...chilly minority
Exactly. I was all stoked to help him out but then I realized the only time I ever run is if being chased by something scary
Done! What's your current count @OP
All set. I hope you get what you need! (And yes, some of us imgurians play sports!)
did it, glad to help, good boy, maybe you're dog
Done also. Good luck!
@OP My main sport only requires a mouth guard, I hope that's ok.
the more the merrier!
Thank you for being a reasonable one. Take my upvote and enjoy your day.
My son recently turned 15. He’s going to our local shelter tomorrow to sign up for volunteer work during his summer break.
I think the selfie rule is overlooked in the case of it not being used for point whoring.
Did you get that 100 yet.
I hope imgur helps, but you need to put the hustle on! Get the name of every high school and college coach in the tri-state area call/mail.
God help me if this produces ANYTHING close to publishable in a legitimate research-oriented venue.
Like I’ve never played sports. I was in the band back in the 90s
Sorry man, but that's a really badly designed survey.
@OP gotchu from NZ, field hockey goalie here!
I tried, but I dont play sports. Good luck @op
thank you so much!
That's unexpectedly wholesome.
Much more specific than that: athletes who use some kind of protective equipment. That rules out even most athletic Imgurians.
yeah, because athletes don't even know about this interweb thingey.
Running wouldn't matter, unless you're so bad at it that you need knee pads and a helmet. It's about protective sports equipment.
How are you going to weed out all the made-up data that I just submitted?
found the parent
I filled out your form @OP. God speed good sir!
Did the survey. Anything to help a young person with some science. Good luck.
Done. Let me know how many you end up with please
Post some pics of the cute animals while you are doing it. Good luck with everything!
Did you just assume our genders?
You gotta reach out to the Reddit community, they'll have super-specific places for you to post your survey.
I did the same for HEMA
Who is the swimmy imgurian from the olympics? Someone tag him.
I just consideredmy reenactment fighting as a sport since I use padding :D
I took the survey, I am a archer, so there's some padding/protection. Hope it helps even a little bit :)
I did your survey!
Now I’m curious how he’s doing?
Done, buddy! Keep up the good work.
Not sure my sport fits your criteria very well but completed.
I did your thing... now you have to get your paper published that’s my requirement
I've seen this before..like, a year ago..I don't trust this at all. Wtf are you & what are you trying to pull? I smell B.S.
Sporting equipment shill, take your data-mining somewhere else. Those kinda questionnaires earn redeemable points on other sites, but
I was never good in groups so I stayed home and played trials
not here. Know your base & viewers, offer something in return. We're tired of being used, & this site is geared towards instant
I would love to take this survey, but I unfortunately I am not athletic in any way shape or form :( Good luck though! :)
Well la de da
Top comment: Volunteer at your local SPCA for a couple hours. Good luck
gratification. Go away. We're busy fucking around here, we don't want to be your lab rats.
Yes went to take it, scoffed at it being anything exercise related. I only work out my thumbs man! *sobs*
Just filled it out! Good luck :)
Hey i added my field hockey "i use a mouth guard" and "no i dont think thats hindering my movements" thing I HALP EVYR TAIM
Give us update @op, I did my part!
I filled it out because I am a professional silver rank CS:GO player.
But foam sucks compared to other more expensive alternatives. I've used air, gel and, foam helmets and they are amazing in difference.
Shinguard survey, eh?
As a basketball and track athlete, I also had to back out as my sports don't use protective gear.
I haven't played in 10 years, but I played for 10 years so I used my prior experience. Hope it helps.
Good luck Op!
Hope you make it!
i did you @op
Good luck keep us posted.
Holy fuckin fuckballs
Done! Let us know if you reached your 100, @thegoldenpants! Keep on working and following your goals :)
What sports do you play? Other: Rocket League
Shut up you stupid Attack Helicopter.
Done. Part of my shin still has this odd concave shape to it because I subbed my regular shin pads for extra socks one game. Fun stuff.
... I feel like maybe this isn't the best survey for a goalie that plays hockey. Whatever. Filled it out for you.
My suggestion would be to also share your google survey link on FB community pages. W/ snowball effects you'll get your 100.
As an (Ice) hockey player that list of padding needed to be expanded somewhat.
Don't play anymore, but answered as I would as if I was still
Also, hope it goes well @OP
Yeah like im barely hanging in life and this prick is asking for athletes, wtf?
1) Also, include a url link at the end of survey so people who had done the survey, can easily copy the link and share it to others.
Some of us are or have been Athletes, Im sure at least 100. One thing though, I played all of those sports, but was only allowed 1 selection
2) You are in JR. High, approach your sports teacher and ask if they can spread the survey too. I'm sure they would be happy to pass it on.
3) Odd it as it sounds, you need to chase your data, data never just drops into your hands. Keep at it!!
Hope this helps, and good luck.
Track n field and volleyball player. There are dozens of us! Dozens!
According to my school riflery counts as a sport so I answered.
C'mon son... You have volleyball as a default selection but not hockey?
well he did specify legal and if his parents will allow it :P
I'm both. We do exist
Airsoft player here. Hope I helped!
That might be the best comment I have ever read
Wanted to do a tiny good deed, clicked on it aaand it's about sport gear. Sorry, I don't sport :-(.
Ok i know you wanted to be funny, but you do know that Dachshunde are bred for hunting right?
only if he wears protective geear that day
Is that shinty?
Done. Good luck.
Try reddit. There are sports subs. I tried to help but I play water polo. Not a lot of protection there... just caps.no goggles!
Suck a gay at a homeless shelter
I was so prepared for some weird s**t, than THIS as top comment! Faith in imgur-community: strong and great! <3
Soliciting responses from random people online seems like a great way to completely ruin any validity your study could possibly have.
Done! Keep us posted on how many responses you get in the end!
there you go kid, I 've filled your survey.
Shooting sleeve maybe?
Bjj here, ive done my part
DONT SWEAR IN FRONT OF THE KID YOU FUCKING CUNT
Am i allowed to do it more than once? I play a lot but f sports. And soccer can’t be selected with a second sport.
I used to be an athlete, i have competed in boxing and bjj championships. Soo speak for yourself
Nm i put it in altro (live in italy currently)
If you need responses from athletes, don't go to fucking imgur. Gonna answer the survery and lie just because this is bad science.
Well, that guy seems to think they’re mutually exclusive or something, but I’m both, and I’m sure there are more. Enjoy your response!
Hockey player (field hockey, I'm Australian) for the past 13 years... I agree
Help him out by giving feedback?
Best thing right here.
90 if you include mine
My suggestion: help an elder neighbour to clean the house
Is it okay if I'm a former athlete? Used to play football but now I'm a Quant
I'm a big athlete... but triathlons don't really require padding...
I’m more appalled that this ‘super competitive programme’ thinks a survey of 100 people is enough to publish.
you do science, do you? XD
As if i go outside
Won’t it skew your research if all your responses are imgur users, who are probably lying just to help you out?
I might be a lurker mate, but an opportunity is an opportunity. Who am I to deny that to you?
Go to reddit and subreddit /r/samplesize
Top Comment: stay in school and pass this on :)
Survey completed OP! Hope you get all the responses you need.
Do the thing
I did the thing!
Do you wear shin guards though?
depends on the sport though, I used to play rugby league i used head gear and shoulder pads it was all only foam though, not weaponised ;)
By asking for the survey responses here your results will be invalidated. You've skewed the results by focusing a demographic.
If you had the choice to, would you play with some or all of your padding removed? “Yes No Maybe” - isn’t enough choices to answer this.
I'm an athlete, but only in the bedroom, and only for about 2 minutes. Do you think that counts? :-)
Ha haaaaa *eats potato chip*
Simple, took virtually none of my time.
Not sure of this falls anywhere close to you having to deal with GDPR. But just putting it on your radar.
@op update? How many responses you got
I play adult(non checking) ice hockey. Pretty much everything is protective from projectiles and falling. Most of us don't wear shoulderpads
the fact they say soccer rules out the Uk
Done, best of luck @op
I don't do it a lot, but when I go rollerblading, I always wear protective gear.
Sign me up!
Lol, rugby here. I wear a scrum cap... sometimes
I did my part @OP Good luck brother
Also, voluntary response surveys are uh, not great. Just putting that out there.
Completed the survey. Time to see some animal pictures!
Finally? You’re 16-17...
I laughed because my mind stopped reading after "i suggest cooking your parents"
"I'm doing my part"
You got it fam.
Gymnast here. I completed your survey but it only applied to me tangentially.
Exactly my thought immediating after clicking the link
Did it! Im a former athlete, but i did it.
welp, im at around 6,457 right now, i dont know how to process this
this is a high school level research thing, so hopefully it doesn't apply, but thanks for mentioning this!
I sure hope so!
I can't answer it but updoot for exposure
"I don't know what to do?". You mention that you posted this in a notorius internet site, and then discuss how it might affect the results.
question 1 - what sport do you play? ....this survey isn't for me
Imgur is wholesome AF
Did my part. Lax player and I always used the smallest and lightest pads I could. Except for my helmet which was top of the line.
Only takes a minute to help a someone in need.
Glad we could help.
i mean, he could have gone with something humiliating/embarassing, like walking around the mall in a banana suit.
if its got the potential to be published, it'd be a good idea to treat your paper like it applies.
oh we're way past that now!
I filled one out on behalf of my husband who played college ball...hope it helped
Damn... This is an amazing top comment. I'll double it... Work two days at at a local shelter!
Couldn't answer the survey... Don't play sports anymore! Still want to see you donate time to a shelter though.
I know a few sites where all of the science is reviewed often.
Woo! That’s awesome!
