Hi,

Sorry if you're not the right person to contact about this!

I'm a researcher at University College London (UCL) and I'm currently conducting an online study looking at how video games may impact on work-related strain and how well people recover from it. I’m therefore keen to recruit as many gamers as possible, so was wondering whether it would be possible to post a link in your forum? This is not a commercial survey and all respondents will be provided with instant feedback on their scores and where they can improve, and will be entered into a prize draw for one of six Amazon vouchers. The study has been granted ethical approval through the university and all answers will be kept confidential. If you have any questions, please let me know. Here is a link to the questionnaire if you’d like to have a look: https://uclpsych.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2nMbPpGorN24ogB

Thanks and best wishes,
Emily

 

 

I am assuming the lounge is the appropriate place for this? If that can be confirmed so that I can reply to her.

Sadly the only reason I have a colourful group is that Michael and Gaiden took me out the back and beat me till I gave them my lunch money.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not withstanding this though - Was the lounge the correct place for these requests?

 

 

Oh and Hodge your sig links eat the current tab - not a new tab

You're a GNNet+ member, surely you have something to do with running the website

 

I do - it is called being victimised for my lunch money so that the staff can feed themselves :O

Ask them how they deduced that you're a moderator.

 

Hi! I couldn't find a full list of moderators (although I'm fully willing to accept that it could have been me looking in the wrong place!) and so was going off the moderator section of the member ranks - saw Cornstalk's icon so messaged Stormynature! Sorry if that was the wrong call, it's always hard to work out who's best to contact with these things.

So is it OK for me to go ahead and post this? If not or if you'd like some time to decide, that's fine, I just thought I'd check!

For the record - went ahead and advised Emily to throw the post into the lounge based on previous threads of this nature being in that forum -- so if blame gets applied....It was all Cornstalk's fault :)

 

 

 

oh and we really do need to change to the moderator title in the top members sections to something less confusing for the new folks.

We could just use the asterisk notation introduced in a previous thread to clearly distinguish moderators from non-moderators. I don't think it gets any less confusing, really. Plus some website redesign work has already been carried out to accommodate this change...

P.S. I asked because we've been having this issue already with the "moderators" listing:
http://www.gamedev.net/topic/638309-people-keep-pming-me-thinking-im-a-moderator-help/

 

I figured it was along those lines which is why I pm'd Emily to answer your question in her own words as to how she came to the conclusion I was a mod. Definitely the top member section was the root cause and then Cornstalk's icon placed the last breadcrumb on the trail to me.

This problem would be resolved if we just gave EVERYONE moderation powers. What could possibly go wrong?

This reminds me of how some of the conversations/topics made over the now defunct Google Wave went with my friends. The timeline (rewind or whatever, equivalent of 'History' here on these forums) feature didn't help much either.

So, I fully support GeneralQuery's idea :D

Edit: Also, I apologize to you, EmilyC, for misleading you. The story behind my picture comes from this thread.
