But it definitely wouldn't be reliable for getting a statistically accurate picture of the greater community. Maybe there are certain characteristics that make some people more likely to post. Probably posters are more hard core so you may not be getting a good picture of the casual players (which may be a more diverse group in terms of gender, ethnicity and age than the hard core group.)
Message boards might be a good start, yes, but I am looking for a statistical picture of the greater community (including hardcore players of course). I looked around on some of the big sites like Yahoo and such, but there's no report on demographics.
If anyone knows of where I can find one please let me know.
