Please fill out this survey by a PhD candidate at Indiana University. I usually decline requests for surveys and such on HornFans, but I think this guy is doing something really interesting. It isn't the usual "internet sports fans are crazy, obsessed serial killers"
The survey is anonymous. It is not marketing driven at all. Nothing will be tied back to you in any way. It is purely for this guy's dissertation. He contacted me about this months ago and I agreed to help.
Hi, my name is Galen Clavio, and I'm a Ph.D. student at Indiana University. You are cordially invited to participate in a research study on sport message board users. This is the first study of its kind, and the basic premise of the project is that sport message boards, particularly those dealing with university athletic programs, represent an important and rapidly growing part of the overall sport landscape. It's my hope that this study will help to increase the body of knowledge for researchers about sports message boards, while also shedding light on how important they've become to the sports world as a whole.
The survey is completely anonymous, and will take you about 5-10 minutes to complete. Thanks in advance for your participation! If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
