Yesterday, Star Wars author Claudia Gray promoted a survey regarding Star Wars and feminism, along with a smattering of other topics.
ATTN STAR WARS FANS, your help is needed!! Help Mark out by completely this survey. It takes 10 minutes and will help better understand how awesome and diverse the tastes of the Star Wars fandom is! FEMALE FANS are especially needed!!! https://t.co/enDn7Zi18u

It’s uncertain who “Mark” is as of this writing. However, comments from a Reddit thread posted below suggests that this “Mark” published another survey around the time of TFA’s release which put forth the notion of “toxic fanbase.”
Unfortunately, as of this writing the survey has been closed.
Whether the survey was closed after one day because a “response limit has been reached”, or whether the survey was closed because word of it got out beyond the desired Reylosphere, is unknown as of this writing. It’s possible this could be a Chuck Wendig style survey where those who would give undesirable answers are simply blocked off. Presumably the desirable participants might be the “FEMALE FANS” that Claudia typed out in all caps.
However, thanks to Facebook user “Reylo is endgame”, we have a screen capture of a description of the survey.
Thanks to another source, we have screencaps of some of the questions, courtesy of Elwood P. Dowd, which seem to relate to feminism and “change.”
That is the only portion of the survey that has been captured as of this writing. However, others who have taken the survey have remarked about it in a Reddit thread. Here are some of their comments:

When SJWs put out any kind of survey, it’s usually an attempt to use “science” to prove that they are virtuous, and that their opposition is evil incarnate. So I would expect that at some point, we’ll see some article published that makes just such an assertion.
There are some interesting remarks in the Twitter thread where Claudia Gray promoted the survey:
Turns out, Bryan Young wants to see the data from this poll. Probably to write the kind of article I spoke about earlier.
Hey, Star Wars fans, here’s a survey I’m interested in seeing data from. Go take it, it takes just a few minutes. https://t.co/0XdQZCpMWG

Here’s a comment from Bryan Young’s Twitter thread:
An anonymous user, Reyblewme, posted the following comment below:
it is believed that Mark is Mark White who did the survey and article after TFA entitled “The Force is Too Strong with This One? Sexism, Star Wars, and Female Heroes”
According to Mark White’s profile at The Inquisitive Mind:
