    I have a REALLY IMPORTANT question, Mike,

    Do mp3 sites pay you actually? I sometimes buy couple of songs from mp3 sites, I’m not sure are they really paying you for that songs. what about abroad sites? Here Korea we have big mp3 sites selling your songs, I sometimes buy them…

    Nowadays people don’t buy CD, they buy mp3… so I really wanna know whether you can get actual benefit from them.

    Love you man.

    Anyway I did that survey but some error occurred, it won’t submit my survey! ….gave up…

  2. Hawaii_LP_fan on October 13, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    I haven’t answered them yet, sorry! But I will soon. Sidekick phones are limited & it doesn’t help that I’m computer illiterate. What a bummer huh? Hey but I’m real curious about your q’s now. Reading the comments here has got me wonderin’. Especially the mystery prize thingie. Is it to win a day with the band or Mr. Mike Shinoda? Wishful thinking? Haha I’m j/k.

  3. Curiosa on October 13, 2008 at 11:35 am

    lol Interesting…..

    Doing a marketing survey, huh? I hope 4 LP. Not sure how those ?s are going to help w/the site. lol Otherwise I do hope u realize it won’t completely help MSR unless u guys sign up someone who’s like LP.

  4. sasummsumm on October 13, 2008 at 10:47 am

    DONE^^ funny questions😄 kinda fun

  5. maria on October 13, 2008 at 10:17 am

    Mike, I did the survey). Wish you good luck guys)

  6. drpd1 on October 13, 2008 at 9:50 am

    did the survey. Hope Chester is better……….🙂

  7. JulietVR on October 13, 2008 at 9:07 am

    mission accomplished!😉

  8. Alu on October 13, 2008 at 7:37 am

    Mike, about the first question: Taiwan is NOT province of China !
    can you fix this problem? it’s really important to all the taiwanese……

  9. Y_ on October 13, 2008 at 7:27 am

    done, but i thought they r kinda funny questions. (and not sure what the main reason for that..)🙂
    bty, i have xbox360, nintendo ds, but i don play them recently.
    isn it fun if LP band members and LPUers play on the same game (like xbox live or wii)??😉

  10. Frerard on October 13, 2008 at 4:57 am

    i’ve done the survey, just because. but truthfully… most of the questions not related to “what else can we do” for the site. i mean, rating MTM? what’s fave song off MTM? what would the web team apply to the site as the result to that question? bollocks.

    altho i can connect with the game one, i do enjoy visiting mcr.com (sorry for the mentioned), cos they have hidden game on the site which is amusing.

  11. sassi_lp on October 13, 2008 at 12:39 am

    did you seriusoly ask me right ther to pick my favo MTM song????????
    I can’t choose so i just randomly picked one…

  12. zahra on October 12, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    wow alot of qustions but i’m done….:)…mike i really wanted u to answer!!!!!why wont you???!!!ls pls pls pls pls this means alo to me PLS answer

  13. tacos_on_tuesday on October 12, 2008 at 3:06 pm

    That took longer than I wanted it to take. Had I known, I probably wouldn’t have done it but once I started I felt I had already committed to the cause and was compelled to finish. I lost a good 3 minutes out of my life😛

  14. BrazenEntity on October 12, 2008 at 1:16 pm

    To ANALOGGIRL- Right on, man. This business would be better ran with truth and honor. What is honor? It is defending the truth within truth.

    Is it the hematite or the pentagram today?

    Could have been my last post…

  15. sweet_girl on October 12, 2008 at 12:54 pm

    Babe you’re an angel!!

  16. Evabones on October 12, 2008 at 12:42 pm

    It’s a pleasure for me help you Mike ^^

  17. alyeska39 on October 12, 2008 at 11:07 am

    IBLong … i never thought that i would ever get into such a huge fight with my hubby over MUSIC! yes, thats right, the fact that im a LP fan and he isnt is about to destroy my marriage. any advice? please?
    my response It’s music. Good music is largely an opinion so this is a matter of respect. He should respect your love for LP and you should respect his dislike of them. Let him know that you will do this if he will do the same. I don’t know to what extent he’s “not a fan”, whether he can’t stand them or just doesn’t care makes a difference in how you should handle it. Just try not to listen to them a whole lot around him and ask him to try not to complain about it when you do.

  18. skindesbous on October 12, 2008 at 10:53 am

    Are you sure this is just for the website? O_ó

  19. analoggirl on October 12, 2008 at 9:50 am

    Murray’s comment made me realize that the surveys differ depending on the country. I have a feeling that the survey was created to improve a marketing campaign, rather than improve the website. I completed the survey though.

  20. Trip on October 12, 2008 at 9:13 am

    Already done. Pleasure!!! : ) p.s. you could put this on your blog it very good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8M7Ju4SRECw. Very funny and clever 2 hehe. Just take a look… : )

  21. Metal_Value on October 12, 2008 at 9:13 am

    Did the survey.. But didn’t seem like the questions would contribute alot to the site personally ^^;

    And yeah it’d be pretty dope if you and the rest of Linkin Park could give us information on your favourite bands, MTM tracks, Linkin Park songs etc. xD Be interesting. Peace.

  22. MusicalMorphine on October 12, 2008 at 8:54 am

    I think the thing with downloads is it’s not such a big deal if you don’t like the music because you haven’t wasted much, if any money. It’s also a lot easier to click a few buttons and have it in a few minutes than it is to go into town and buy it. Of course there’s always going to be people who don’t agree with downloads and only buy CDs but that’s a different debate.

  23. Hsian on October 12, 2008 at 8:01 am

    Hey Mike.
    I have one question about the vote site.
    TAIWAN is not a PROVINCE OF CHINA.
    It’s very important to Taiwan fans.
    The stuff let us sad.

  24. Rex on October 12, 2008 at 7:59 am

    it’s an interesting survey, and i laughed when i saw games and consoles in there, i guess LP are hardcore gamers.
    and i dont believe downloads have taken over because people like to collect cds, atleast i do!

  25. MusicalMorphine on October 12, 2008 at 5:08 am

    RE: Becs comment – which is why I didn’t even look twice at that question.

    But I was curious as to what video games have to do with LP.
    I kind of felt bad about putting 0 about the number of CDs I have bought in the last 6 months. I guess downloads really have taken over now.

  26. Joanie_LP on October 12, 2008 at 4:33 am

    and my request for you, Mike, is that you check out this too: http://forums.linkinpark.com/showthread.php?t=9977 (and I’m sorry but I don’t know how to make links in LPN or here)

  27. bec on October 12, 2008 at 3:19 am

    Quick qustion/comment about your last question: Please enter your e-mail address if you wish to be entered for a prize and receive more information about Linkin Park?

    Shouldn’t it say something about only US residents will be eligable for prizes?

  28. inWonderland on October 12, 2008 at 2:39 am

    yupp, i did it🙂😉
    i dont know that i should not send you links… but… http://www.myspace.com/piknikpark maybe you find it interesting… or maybe not🙂
    anyway im looking forward to a new album from LP ^^

  29. Kalini on October 12, 2008 at 2:35 am

    Second for the survey: I’ve done your enquiry and reported on the LP forum yesterday. The most difficult questions are: Is MTM my favorite album or I like it less than the others: I love all the albums the same way. I answered that MTM is my favorite album, because I think LP is becoming better and better with each new album. The second difficult question is for a favorite song: I have never just one favorite song; I answered “What I’ve Done”, because I love the sound, the message and the video of the song. If you need our ideas to renovate the web site, please, do not hesitate to ask! Please, send my congratulations to the team behind your web site! Krassie K.

  30. Kalini on October 12, 2008 at 2:34 am

    First for the web site! I know from my experience in marketing that the high rating in internet is a result of your hard work through the years. I’ve used so many methods to increase the traffic to my web sites: direct links and banners; Google Adds and Google campaigns. When you have a constant huge traffic to your web site for several years, you achieve such a high rating in Internet. Example: you don’t need to write linkin park in Google, you just write lp and linkinpark.com comes first. According to my own statistics, the result of a marketing campaign is: at least 70% comes from Internet and not more than 25% comes from Press, Indoor, Outdoor and PR events together. Krassie K.

  31. Lolo on October 12, 2008 at 2:10 am

    I’m all done. Hope it will help you guys.
    Why do we just get three spaces to fill sometimes? I have more choices at times and it’s hard to pick just three😦
    Anyway hope Chester is feeling better now.
    Bye

  32. Aqua101 on October 12, 2008 at 1:14 am

    ≈♥≈ Submitted! Done! Thks for allowing us to hv our say. But be honest, don’t see how that can improve visit to LinkinPark.com or LPN. Some Qs just not so related, except if u intend to use it for concert-plans to other places/countries. BTW, I agree w/ Linkinparc’s comment below that u shld let us (the fans) knows what are yr fav things also, like yr fav song/show, etc, not just from us. We also wanna know abt yrself & perhaps LP band. And How is Chester doing? Can u plz update us??? Take care…PEACE…;)

  33. MissNatalie1984 on October 12, 2008 at 12:57 am

    interesting concept. i don’t know how some of the questions will actually improve visits to linkinpark.com and to the LPN in general, but kudos nonetheless in trying to make things better.🙂

  34. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on October 12, 2008 at 12:46 am

    hey mike, did it🙂 it was cool xD thnkx.. byeeee ^^

  35. Lobby on October 12, 2008 at 12:41 am

    You got it. What do you do with my 3 most visited pages anyway? PS. I just saw Top 10 @ 10 on MTV Estonia and what do I see, LP! So, I wrote the songs down, unfortunately I couldn’t see the top 3.. But 10. Faint 9.Points of Authority 8.Somewhere I belong 7.In the end (who the hell put that there? Should be 1!) 6.We made it 5.What I’ve done 4. One Step Closer….

  36. Philly_Willy on October 11, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    Done-diddly-un, btw what are you guys doing with the info collected?

  37. ffmuteki9 on October 11, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    I know it’s not LP’s fault, but TAIWAN IS NOT A PROVINCE OF CHINA, OK?!

    I will still help finish the survey, but it’s really killing me to select this country option– Taiwan, “province of China”
    (and since it says “What country do you live in?”, why does the fucking site still add “province of China” this suck note?)

  38. Shinodabestfriend on October 11, 2008 at 11:38 pm

    aaaw Mikey… ^^ (answering the questions)
    lol😀 hypnotized by your beauty

  39. ThePrincess on October 11, 2008 at 11:11 pm

    thank you…..when i read ur note…i feel so happy…this is what i want…..u never know how much its meant to me…only this thing…who makes me feel close to you since LP tour cancelled i feel losing u……so mike…just stay there..please..dont change…hear ur deep voice…and watching ur amazing eyes…is the biggest blessed for me..& thanks …cause.you always care for your fans…i love you so much…godbless you…

  40. shinoda_me on October 11, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    i wish i could put up two favourites from the last album instead of one… my brain gets stuck when i have to choose between In Between and Hands Held High so i have to flip a coin or something..
    other than that… i think it’d be good to have the other guys come in and say hi sometimes on the site.. (umm… get more people to go to linkinpark.com that way?)… im tired of people whining about you not coming ol and posting over there enough when the truth is, you’re the only guy from the band who does that at all!

    great going! =) much love and respect from India …. (why the hell do you tour the same places over and over again?)

  41. crystalrussianla on October 11, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    hey mike I thook the survey it was cool i like how you guys want to no
    what we want umm..i would like to see more of the band members on thats what i would like see
    and tell Chester we wish him to get well soon godbless

  42. ChesterDEAN on October 11, 2008 at 9:07 pm

    Done. I loved answering the survey hehe. And I think it’s a cool thing that you actually want to know the things we like to improve your site. Ahhh I love how you guys always care for us the fans when other bands feel like god almighty and forget about their fans. You rock😀

  43. linkinparc on October 11, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    Hey mike!

    I’d love to know YOUR answers…what your fav track on MTM is, if u downloaded music…your fav Game!

  44. axrinekey on October 11, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    Haha…
    xD
    Cool..

    It’s fun doing the survey😛
    I dunno why~

  45. I_B_Long on October 11, 2008 at 8:03 pm

    im drunk, so im violating your double posting rule. DO SOMETING ABOUT IT! or…not…..uummmm, where am i? you know, mister Shinoda, i never thought that i would ever get into such a huge fight with my hubby over MUSIC! yes, thats right, the fact that im a LP fan and he isnt is about to destroy my marriage. any advice? please?

  46. martinac on October 11, 2008 at 7:31 pm

    Hey I filled out form etc. but when I put widgit on facebook stayed the same I’ll try again I just gave up cause I come on here anyway. I’m a bebo nerd wish I was on official page on BEBO cause I wud update it more. hard to upload pictures of ur own or personal pages & the only way to get 2 kno people n ireland is if u look up what show they were at.It’s ahard page 2 work u have to b on alot to get it & question pages are still a blur to me, I feel like I’m behind in the questions I think rob BEBO or FACEBOOK sumthing like that us silly europeans but sure whatever works xxx

  47. alyeska39 on October 11, 2008 at 6:55 pm

    Only if it actually helps.😉 jk, I know it’ll help. Done and done.
    And Doggie24690, I hope it’s a puppy, or maybe a kitten. I’m planning on getting a kitten anyway, this way I wouldn’t have to worry about the adoption, they’d just give me one, haha.

  48. lynndarwinharris on October 11, 2008 at 6:45 pm

    Complete! Thanks for allowing us to have our say!

  49. ms_shock on October 11, 2008 at 6:27 pm

    done. Why do u need this? Or it’s a secret? xD and what’s up with ChaZZzzZZZzz? And i’m so glad to hear from you “Thank you for supporting”…… Golden words for me xD

  50. NataliaForgotten on October 11, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    Cool questions, actually I don’t have a favorite song in MTM, but I chose The Little Things. It’s weird that Orkut is in the list, I mean, the most part of the users are brazilians and it’s an international survey, you should creat a profile and add me, haha! Joking. o/ Thanks for care about us, Mike.❤ ^^

  51. murry on October 11, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    I’m not sure what you’re looking for with those questions, but I resent the fact that The Daily Show and The Colbert Report weren’t included with the late night shows. I don’t feel like I was able to accurately convey what I watch. Also, I can’t imagine why you want to know what I want to watch. But I did it, anyway.

  52. I_B_Long on October 11, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    filled out your survey. it was kinda fun, especially because the “what magazines do you read regularly” question, made me feel OLD!! answer: parents, american baby, xbox magazine (ok, so 2 out of 3, still feel old) aaanyway, hope my answers were some sort of use to you guys. especially because i got into a fight with my hubby over them (or LP in general). gawd i cant belive some people are so narrow minded (im crying,please dont tell on me) oh well, who cares? annnyway, sorry for the offtopicness.

  53. NoMoreSorrowGirl on October 11, 2008 at 2:35 pm

    hey!mike,surveying huh!hahaha!is there any prize or just only a trick?hahaha!BTW,how’s Chester doin’?tell him to stop being a stunt man ok?just concentrate on his music career…god bless you and LP :))AND MIKE,you know what!?i can’t sleep and hardly to eat if i can’t open your blog…DAMN THIS BLOG…it makes me sick…did i consider myself as a Blog-Whore too just like igrabbedchesterswrist says?peace man…LOL!!!

  54. Viry on October 11, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    I did it🙂 It was fun to do the survey…but it was hard to pick my favorite song, because I like all the album! anyway…
    Have a nice day!🙂

  55. cuz on October 11, 2008 at 2:14 pm

    Sure🙂 You guys always look for a chance to do more. I love how you care about the fans. It’s just impossible not to love LP🙂 I just take the survey, I like surveys. Have a nice day. Hope Chester is better.

  56. Doggie24690 on October 11, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    Alright, I did it. Kinda feel bad that i had to answer that I only go on the LPU maybe once a week. Awww, the days I spent six hours on at a time, haha. Can’t to see if I got a prize… is it a puppy? Have a good one.

  57. lucky_cat on October 11, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    target group analyses ?! OMG I tought you know us …😉 btw, what about the blogworld audio? do you get it?

  58. nataku on October 11, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    done. i feel being cool. lol now i want my prize :E

  59. Mikeshi_Linkfort on October 11, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    Has made! I am glad that the opinion of fans excites you! You the best musical group!)

  60. rockermeg on October 11, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    Did it yesterday (-:

    At the bottom it says something about being entered for a prize? What prize would that be?

    xxx

  61. sandra on October 11, 2008 at 1:37 pm

    mike, i definitely like and totally appreciate the way you and and the band truly seem to care about us fans and our wishes… and yes, I answered the survey… but to be honest, i don’t really see how many of those questions are related to improve linkinpark.com !?? why does is matter, which magazines I’m reading or if and what video console I have?
    anyway, thanks for always trying to involve and interact with us!

  62. Anene on October 11, 2008 at 1:31 pm

    I did the survey because you asked so nicely. Probably would have done it anyways since you’re my favourite artist in the world. Anyways, why does surveys have to ask you which is your favourite album and go on to give you only options where you have to choose one? Point is, cut the surveys that forces you to choose favourite album and favourite song. It’s horrible especially when you like all 3 albums for different reasons and find it hard to pick a favourite song off a brilliant album. Brilliant albums have more than one good song you know. Don’t sell yourselves short.

  63. numbrocker02 on October 11, 2008 at 1:26 pm

    I took the survey. I had a problem choosiing a favorite from MTM. We should have had 2 or 3 blanks for that. All the songs rocked!!
    Oh and can you do an update about Chester. PLEASE!!! I (and probably a lot of other fans) am worried about him!! I’ll keep him in my prays.

  64. LPAngel on October 11, 2008 at 1:19 pm

    i already answered the questions this morning, that was very cool. the hardest question was what´s my favourite song on Minutes to midnight lol, i love all the songs, it´s very difficult to choose😛. the question about what other bands we like, i put 2 bands that you probably don´t know cause they are very popular here in Portugal. watch this videos, i think that you will like it =)=) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5BnvmaItLw  and  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm7obxmi1mM

  65. lxlatinangelxl on October 11, 2008 at 1:12 pm

    just did it🙂 and in case you didn’t read my question:Why do you like Avenged Sevenfold? (your sounds are very different) what’s your favorite song and why?….btw,just reminding you that Glorious Excess was mentioned on SPIN MAGAZINE ,the october isse…BUY ONE!

  66. parm1der on October 11, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Done (:
    Just one thing… Can you work on another FM project soooooon, i relate to so many of them songs man.
    Hope you and your family are good
    Peace

  67. Noe_Kenji on October 11, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    yeah mike, please tell us how chaz is going? ive heard that he has to be surged.. is that true? my best wishes!!! hope hes gonna be ok very soon, all my support!!!

    love & respect
    Noemi

  68. ShadowerLiltani on October 11, 2008 at 12:37 pm

    Yahoo!! fourth comment! Hee❤ So, like, anyways, that was fun. Gave me something to do. My favorite question was about if we had MTM or not, and that little suggestive picture of the album cover. Real smooth, Mike-san😄 Yeah, I love when a band hides advertising their album with a cute little survey that has absolutely nothing to do with making a website better.

  69. miKer0cks on October 11, 2008 at 12:29 pm

    wow!! i answered the questions this morning (it’s 10.30pm here now)!!! pretty good idea!!! it’s cool!!! the site is awesome btw….i love it!!! great job!!!❤ have a great day mike and please tell us how's chester doing? plz!!!! cya and take care❤

  70. Sonia_LPrnway_ on October 11, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    a survey? why not! i’m kinda bored, i’ll do it!😛

  71. Madlen on October 11, 2008 at 12:26 pm

    just did it…i kind of like surveys…there are pretty fun:DThe question about favorite song on mtm was the hardest…and omg i can’t believe i’m posting the first comment (party)
