Oppo Census 2016 Results (Repost for morning/international crew) (UPDATED)

Illustration for article titled Oppo Census 2016 Results (Repost for morning/international crew) (UPDATED)

UPDATE: We are going to have a re-do of this sometime during the summer! Or winter(?) for you southern hemisphere Opponauts. I’ll try to repost it then as much as possible without being annoying, and I’ll mention it in my username.

The moment we’ve all (not) been waiting for! The number of responses topped out a bit over 200, so I decided to close the form and post the results. But then I forgot about it for a while.

Basically, if this whole thing could be summed up in a short sentence, it’s that I messed up a lot of the answers.

So I have a question:

Should we have a do-over with proper, serious, better answers?

That’s in big bold text because a lot of people didn’t read the instructions/notes for the survey and got mad at me in the text submission.

Anyway, here are the answers!

There was a total of 231 responses to the survey.

For the “other” answers that allowed you to type in your own answer, unfortunately I cannot see these answers without individually looking through each and every single survey submission. That would take forever.

51.1%/118 people do not take public transportation. Somebody submitted that this section could’ve been improved, and that the “NO!” made it sound like they didn’t take it because they disliked public transportation, rather than because of a poor system, which was the actual reason behind their choice. These are very good points and another thing that can be improved next time.
39%/90 people take it randomly/whenever they need to.
10%/23 people do take public transportation.

What manufacturers are they from?

For some reason, most manufacturer names here which were selected by users didn’t show up. Instead, a lot of manufacturer names nobody selected showed up, like Daewoo. So I added the selected ones back and put them in green so they’re easier to see. NOTE: The green text doesn’t mean those are the only ones with submissions! There are submissions in black text as well.

I’d love to see what people put in the Other answers, but as mentioned earlier, I would have to go through all 231 submissions to find these 12 answers. So if you selected Other and want to tell us in the comments, go right ahead!

What types of engines do they have?

Someone pointed out it was a dumb move of me to lump the flat-engine cars with the non-flat ones. This is another very good point, sorry.

Also, I’m preeetty sure I know who chose W16 engine. When the amount of responses was in the single digits, I looked through the submitted forms and saw that form with the W16 choice was full of shitpost worthy answers. AHEM.

Edit: Sorry, I went through the first couple submissions. The person I’m thinking of put V12, not W16. But still, we’d like to know who here has/had a W16!

Do any of your vehicles have an automatic brake-hold function?

Some people were upset that the Yes choice said “Yes, but I don’t use it” and said the only reason they use it is because of hills or they’re not great with manuals. That is perfectly fine, I really meant people who hate driving and using it on flat ground. Next time I won’t do that.

Which of these Official Cars of Oppo© do you own/have you owned? (List not complete)

This part got a whole bunch of people upset in the text submission. Originally, I wasn’t even sure if I should’ve included this part. I started it with the basic answers (E30, Miata, etc), and then it grew to what it is now, which still left out a lot of cars I somehow forgot about (Crown Vic, for example).

And a lot of people genuinely think I can’t spell Camaro, Dodge, or Ford. There, I spelled them correctly.

So there you have it. A bunch of juicy useless statistics that are probably 50% accurate. As they said on old new Top Gear, ambitious but rubbish!

After all this scrolling and reading, I’ll repeat the question down here:

Should we have a do-over with proper, serious, better answers?

Maybe we could think of this as a “beta test.” The questions and answers could be improved for next time. What do you think?
