Help with Academic Research based on NwN fan-communities
« on: April 24, 2013, 03:27:18 AM »
I received this message from José about some academic research he is doing for an upcoming ICA conference. I think you should all take your time to fill out this survey. Research in this field can only benefit our cause here.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This survey is only for players. DMs and developers will have another surveys that I will post on their boards.

This is Jose's introduction:

-----

Dear community members,

   I am carrying out an academic research based on NwN fan-communities and their members which will be presented at the ICA (International Communication Association) Annual Conference in London this summer. This research is centering on transmedia branding, the relationship between canon and fanon in NwN fan-servers, and UGC (user-generated content) and fictional worlds. In order to collect all data I need, I elaborated a poll for NwN players. Now, I need your collaboration. The poll is anonymous (just a nickname is requested in order to differentiate poller’s questions) and brief (10 minutes length approximately). It can be found here:

This survey will be open for the next 10-15 days.  Taking your time reading and asking the questions, you can help me to make a reliable research which will give more relevance to the collaborative (NwN) communities and claim for the UGC value.

Thank you in advance,

José M. Blázquez
