I own original copies of everything 82% Mostly originals, but some copies 18%
Question 6 - Which formats do you buy?
CD is the clear favourite here. It doesn't add up to 100% because some people regularly buy more than one format.

Question 7 - Have you seen Eternal live?
Quite a few of you have seen Eternal live... hopefully more will say Yes after Eternal's tour early next year.

Question 8 - What was your favourite Eternal TV appearance?
No individual performance proved to be a clear favourite, but 36% of you said you liked seeing Eternal on Top Of The Pops.
Question 9 - Who are your favourite artists?
Incredibly, only one artist apart from Eternal scored more than 5 points - it seems like we have a lot of Mariah Carey fans around here (myself included)!
As for Louise,, she didn't get any votes as an artist in her own right - either you don't like her, or (I hope) you included her with Eternal.
1. Eternal 2. Mariah Carey

Again, there were few clear favourites apart from (not surprsingly) Eternal...

Question 13 - Which gender are you?
Disappointingly few female fans responded. The low figure is probably more representative of the people who use the Internet than Eternal fans as a whole.
Male 91% Female 9%
Question 14 - How old are you?
You're the same age as me on average! :-) As with the gender question, the results are probably influenced more by the Internet than by Eternal.

A very strong bias towards the UK here, although there are people from sevaral other countries on the mailing list.
