What is your experience of using TechRepublic?

Hello everyone,

As part of my MSc Dissertation project at Warwick Business School in UK, I?m conducting a survey that deals with users? experiences of participation in professional virtual communities, of which TechRepublic is perfect example.

I would be great if you could help me and participate by clicking on the link below. The survey will take no longer than 10 minutes to answer. All responses will be kept strictly confidential (used only for the purposes of my dissertation). Everyone who participates will have the option to enter into a draw for five ?20 (or $30) Amazon vouchers.

The survey is accessible at:

I greatly appreciate your help. My degree depends on this survey! If you would like to know the results of my work, I will be happy to share them here with the TechRepublic community after the data is collected.

Best regards,

Nikita Kursov

Oops, another unimaginative reply title.

You must be right. I'm a template thinker.

I dismiss you out of hand for a singularly unimaginative reply.

No offense, just caution.

Some of us are more included to stick a toe in the water than just jumping in blindly.

If the other person you're worried about offending was santeewelding, don't be. That's just his way of saying hello.

I feel this thread may have been all the more colorful with responses from OM and Scummy. Makes me miss them more so.

Click on the link, help me out and I might be in a drawing for an Amazon voucher? Woo Hoo!

I wouldn't click on your link ever Nikita, member since today. Your post looks like a million other spam emails that I just delete.

Unfortunately I cannot provide you with any solid proof other than my own words. I am an MSc student collecting responses for my survey, of which I have so far collected just under 170 in four online communities.

It is up to you whether to believe me or not. If you don't believe the above, and regard my post as spam, then delete the post, delete my user account and I will look to complete my respondent quota in other, less distrustful communities.

Now, you have gone and done it.

I prefer to think of my fellows here as exercising ribald intellect.

This is unknown where you are?

you mean that you never realized we are a distrustful group of people?

or as I like to put it:
We trust everyone implicitly, to be out to screw us over.
