Calling out all Nerdfighters!
My name is Mariana and I’ve been a Nerdfighter since 2008. I’m currently writing my master thesis about participation and culture in online communities, and decided to do a case study about Nerdfighteria.
I chose this community because I believe there is a lot to learn from its unique history and dynamics. Nerdfighteria has shown time and again that it is capable of reaching great goals, and I think it is important to explore and understand how it does so. With that in mind, I prepared a survey that inquires about Nerdfighter culture and Nerdfighters’ participatory behavior in order to better understand the inner workings of this community… And now I need YOUR help.
If you watch Vlogbrothers’ videos and consider yourself a Nerdfighter (or not!), please take the time to take my survey. It takes around 15-20 minutes to fill out, and you would be helping me out enormously.
You can find the survey here.
Once I finish my study, I will be sure to share my findings on Tumblr.
Please feel free to message me if you have any questions about the questionnaire or my research at all.
Thank you all so much, and DFTBA!!!
EDIT: I have received SO many responses. Thank you all so, so much for your time and kindness. I will be very busy going over them in the next few weeks, but I will definitely be sharing my results here. You all have blown me away. Thanks for not forgetting to be awesome :)
