Research study on Trek Fandom

Hi,

I'm a psychologist and I'm designing a study on fandoms and especially the Trek fandom. I'll use an online survey and will need to advertise it online. I'm especially interested in finding people who have been to conventions and have gone in costume.

So, here's where I need some help: where, besides here trekbbs, online would be a good place to find Trekkies/Trekkers that go to cons?

Thanks!

- Bill

www.Stardestroyer.net, while mostly a Star Wars site, does have a Star Trek forum.

www.ex-astris-scientia.org, it's kind of a sprawling site, you might find a convention link/forum there.

Good luck.

Try the SF Ball forum. http://forum.sfbevents.com/index.php...92c7f92ed46732

Oh, if I had a quid for every person who ever wanted to study Trek fans over the years...

Re: Research study on Trek Fandom

Wow, got rejected after the second question, have you lived in the US for at least twenty years? I was born a US citizen, but because of my parent's military careers, didn't live in the US for half my life.

On the question of "What is your gender?" There is only male or female, no option for transgenders like myself. Later on the question of "What is your ethnic background?" there is the option of "other" with a fill in the blank.

Excluded again.

At one point he asks if you are a fan of the movie, The Big Lebowski. (Bowling, right?)

They're from the future, when we become...significant.

And I'm not allowed to say any more.

I got the boot because I never attended a con. Okay now I'll go take the survey and see if I can bullshit my way all the way to the end by guessing what survey monkey wants me to say!

Spoiler! The answer to the last question is:



Everyone got that one, right?
