    Default Growtopia ‘Survery’ Email?

    Just received this email a while ago

    It seemed pretty legit in ways, but then again I didn’t wanna risk clicking the link. Could any staff reply whether it’s fake or not? Many have gotten the email so it’s pretty serious. Don’t even know where someone would’ve gotten my email if the email was to be fake.
    Small note, email it was sent to was not my main accounts email. I believe it was the email (not entirely sure) I used to create the account but I changed my associated email a long time ago.

    It’s an unprofessional email with a weird address: ‘noreply@qeserver.com’. So I’m almost positive it’s fake.

    Edit: Oshasack took the survey and it didn’t ask for username nor password.

    The company behind the survey software seems legit, but anyone could sign up for an account and use its services for nefarious purposes.
    I'd recommend just deleting the email and not bothering with it if you do get one.
    Hi I'm Pikasack!
    Pretty much a lurker, if you DM me I will probably respond within a few days.

    It's confirmed by NekoRei that's a legit survey.

    Just gonna say it again here... Don't be alarmed! That survey email is actually legit!

    The survey was sent to players who got inactive recently and that survey will go online in the gazette very soon for active players.

    Hmmm, why not just create a survey on the official website?
    Would look way more legit, and it's not that hard to code one

    the fact that "surprise" surveys are a thing now, might lead to more people starting phishing...

    And more people falling for that...

    What I said before is:
    Why isn't the survey on growtopiagame.com and that survey link sent to growtopians?

    Well it’s a totally unprofessional one if I’m being honest.
    One of the questions was ‘From the following, which would be the reasons to keep playing Growtopia?’ and an option for an answer was ‘Scamming other players’. Like what even?

    Then some question’s multiple choice answers are no good and to vague like this:

    And lastly, you said the survey was sent to inactive players first yet most of the questions are directed towards active players. I get that you are putting it in the gazette but clearly a different survey should have been sent to inactive players.
