Knowledge-based trust is especially important for online business environments where there are repeated transactions between fixed pairs of consumers and merchants. Knowledge-based trust is trust that is grounded in knowledge about another party developed through repeated interaction. A conceptual model of knowledge-based trust is tested with questionnaire responses of 253 online game players. The purpose of this study was twofold: to investigate the conscious and unconscious psychological motivations of online game addicts, and to further discuss the relationship between surface and source motivations. The implications of the present study are discussed. Here, we describe how action sequences are numerically coded into time-series matrices for computation of DTW distances. In an action sequence such as , it is coded into . We propose a visualization approach for analyzing players' action behaviors. Visualization techniques have been recently applied to discover in-game player behaviors. This research, however, focuses on visualizing player behaviors based on their actions.

In our research, the th element in is the DTW distance between the reduced time-series matrices of action sequences of players and . For achievers motivated by advancement, interactions with mission masters should be frequently seen in their action sequences, and thus all possible sets of frequent action symbols for them are c, m, m, n, m, r, c, m, n, c, m, r, m, n, r, and c, m, n, r. For explorers motivated by discovery, interactions with remote objects should be commonly seen among them and thus their sets of frequent action symbols should be c, r, m, r, n, r, c, m, r, c, n, r, m, n, r, and c, m, n, r. Achievement consisting of three subcomponents, that is, advancement, mechanics, and competition.(ii)Social consisting of three subcomponents, that is, socializing, relationship, and teamwork.(iii)Immersion consisting of four subcomponents, that is, discovery, role-playing, customization, and escapism. For socializers motivated by socializing, chats should be commonly seen among them, leading to sets of frequent action symbols c, m, c, n, c, r, c, m, n, c, m, r, c, n, r, and c, m, n, r.

Figure 4 shows the resulting KeyGraphs for the three player types, where each KeyGraph was generated from the data sets of the corresponding player type. It is therefore inevitable to online-game developers and publishers to know their player behaviors so that they can develop game contents that fulfill player demands. Building on previous studies of trust, this paper examines the proposition that players’ knowledge about website characteristics (i.e., security and interface design) and about website outputs (i.e., online game quality and service quality) has an effect on the development of trust in the context of online game websites. The quality of player service plays an important role in winning such competitions. The main game objects were nonplayer characters (NPCs), statically positioned at different locations, with whom player characters (PCs) must interact-(chat, help, trade)-to receive and complete missions; the item-shop, from which PCs bought items and monsters, randomly positioned throughout the game world for PCs to attack with snowballs.

The achievement, social, and immersion categories correspond to Bartle's achievers, socializers, and explorers, respectively, although the above ten motivations overlap among player types. After content analysis, five categories with distinct themes were formed: (1) addicts' psychological needs and motivations; (2) online games as the everyday focus of the addicts; (3) the interplay of real self and virtual self; (4) lapak303 online games as the compensatory or extensive satisfaction for addicts' needs; and (5) addicts' self-reflections. Through sentence completion test and semi-structured interviews, data were collected and analyzed from the following four realms: (1) surface motivations, (2) source motivations, (3) self-conception, and (4) interpersonal relationships in real life. 1)Foundations: subgraphs of highly associated and frequent terms representing basic concepts in the data.(2)Roofs: terms highly associated with foundations.(3)Columns: associations between foundations and roofs used for extracting keywords or main concepts in the data. Under KeyGraph representation, solid lines and their touching black nodes depict foundations, dotted lines depict columns, red nodes depict roofs excluding those in the foundations, and double circles depict keywords.

The proposed approach consists of two visualization techniques: classical multidimensional scaling (CMDS) and KeyGraph. Note that m, c, and r are the keyword nodes in the KeyGraphs of achiever, socializer, and explorer, respectively, and henceforth these findings are used as visualization metrics. Another keyword is "proposed." Three roof terms are "consists," "two," and "techniques." These terms well represent the messages in the abstract. There are definite differences between a casual, daytime fragrance and one that is heavier and should be worn on a special evening. One hundred 18- to 20-year-old participants (73% male; 68% Caucasian) were randomly assigned to play arcade, console, solo computer, or MMORPG games for 1 month. It is interesting to note that the survey also outlined that the individual user’s loss was small - scam-reporting survey participants suggest the average monetary loss was about $200 - but the overall loss increased, simply because more phishing operations found more victims.
