Hi everyone.

I made sure to receive permission from the administrator before posting this thread.

I am a final year undergraduate student in University College Cork in Ireland and I am researching how people interact in online communities. As you are a member of this forum, my study would benefit greatly from your contribution. The study consists of an anonymous, 15-minute survey which you can access by going to the link below. The survey features general questions about interacting online as well as specific questions about your participation in this forum.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the principle researcher at

All information obtained in this study is strictly confidential, you remain anonymous, and you have the right to withdraw from the study at any time. You may also skip any questions which you do not wish to answer. You are also free to contact the researcher if you would like to receive the results of this study after it has been completed.

Thanks everyone!
