    Default Research Help: Studying the Bubhub Community

    Hi everyone, I am a researcher at the University of Melbourne, and I study online communities such as Bubhub. I am currently working on three separate projects, and I am keen to speak with Bubbers about these:

    1) 'The Regulars': We are interested to speak with the regular Bubbers (people who have made more than 2,000 posts, or regularly start new threads). The Regulars are crucial to online communities! This also include moderators.

    2) Place/Space: we're interested in people's perception of place and space in Bubhub and your on/offline connections. We often talk about online communities as 'third spaces', but maybe they are more geographically focused than is assumed.

    3) Political Talk: We're interested in people's views on political talk in Bubhub. This is everyday talk as well as formal politics such as say the election.


    If you are interested (either to be interviewed or respond to some questions), please get in touch at: scott.wright@unimelb.edu.au. I can, of course, send more details. If you are interested in more details about me:

    http://www.scott-wright.net/

    Many thanks, Scott (scott.wright@unimelb.edu.au)

    p.s. I should add that this research has ethical clearance from the University of Melbourne, and it was funded by the Melbourne Networked Society Institute.

    Hey you worked at Leeds! My supervisor wants me to postdoc there (in a completely different field of course) :-p
    How are the interviews conducted? I'd be happy to participate depending on that.

    Hi Deku, yep, I was a visiting fellow there. Great uni, great city! They are normally online (text chat, skype etc) but phoning is also possible.

    I'd be happy to participate. I'm a rather active 'bubber' (best phrase)! As long as speaking on the phone isn't involved, of course :-)

    Hi all, I have tried contacting people who offered to help via PM, but it seems to not have worked in some cases - sorry!!! I have just sent out some more PMs. If you can help with this research it would be amazing. Feel free also to email me at: scott.wright@unimelb.edu.au. If other people can help, that would be great too!

    Many thanks, Scott!
