Hello,
I am a grad student requesting your help with my dissertation research. I need individuals that participate in bulletin boards and forums to take my anonymous survey. This research is not focusing on this group, I am collecting data from groups all cross the Usenet. The survey takes 2 to 3 minutes.

This survey is part of a dissertation research study entitled Diffusion in social networks, IRB # Y08LZ12191.
The dissertation is being conducted under the auspices of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Your survey lacks a "submit" button.

Hi Bob.
I found the submit button at the bottom of the page, no problem. But I don't understand the meaning of these questions:
11 - It is important for other members to recognize me andrespond to my posts.
Should this be my opinion about the motivation of others? How could I know?
14 - I engage those members who respond to me.No idea, sorry (I'm not a native speaker).
And, you could write somewhere when the survey will be closed.

Greetings

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

It's not about their motivation. It's about whether they show that they remember you from earlier postings.
14 - I engage those members who respond to me. No idea, sorry (I'm not a native speaker).

Do you engage them in continued discussion? Do you reply to their responses, ask them followup questions, etc.?
