I’m shocked that iron players were such a small percentage of the vote. Any chance this was a typo? I thought about ~30% of the community played iron accounts, not 3%
Can confirm its not a typo
Can confirm while it wasn't a typo (we copied what was being displayed correctly), the actual data copied was in fact wrong...
I've removed the stat from the blog for now and we'll put the accurate number in once it's been solved. Sorry for the confusion, pretend you saw nothing!
So less than 8,000 irons of all types (reg, HCIM, UIM, GIM) voted? I just still find that hard to believe unless the community purposely didn’t vote but why wouldn’t they for such a big poll.
r/ironscape has 117K subs
I've asked the team to double check the data is correct, but in terms of where we've pulled it from in CM, it's the right percentage at least. That being said, it is much lower than previous poll stats we've shared, and now I'm second guessing it (hence asking the team to double check)
/u/JagexLight, in the in-depth poll, about 50% of the way through, the answer box for the question "(OPTIONAL) Describe in one word what makes you most excited about the prospect of training a new skill." is showing up as a password box and is dotted out, using Firefox on Windows. Just odd that you can't see what you're typing.
It's been changed now to normal text, was just an oversight having it as a password field. Sorry about that!
I appreciate the follow up, Ayiza! It was just a really surprising statistic. Doesn’t impact anything besides maybe data collection on the back end if something was incorrectly gathered. Who knows, maybe the huge amount of votes in the poll diluted out iron players who are normally active in the smaller polls and that is where they make up much higher percentages. Look forward to hearing the final verdict, regardless!
Turns out the data was looking for the wrong flag. With everything that's been going on I guess we just let this slip, so I'm really grateful for it being called out :)
