Hi,

 

I’m Sam from the University of Nottingham. You may have seen my original research request (http://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/147700-research-participation-request-a-study-of-identities-in-asexual-communities/) in which I outlined the three stages of my research into identities in asexual communities. I’m now excited to confirm that I am moving on to stages two and three. Please find some information below on how you can participate in these stages.

 

Questionnaire
I am keen to find out more about the ways in which members of AVEN understand and experience asexuality and how the AVEN community impacts your lives. This questionnaire contains 36 multiple choice and open answer questions on these topics and should take around 30 minutes to complete. It is open to anyone who uses AVEN (whether asexual or sexual, frequent or infrequent users, registered or guest users…etc). You can access the questionnaire here: https://nottingham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/identities-in-asexual-communities.

 

Focus Groups
I am looking for participants to take part in a series of focus groups, likely to be held between June and September of this year. These meetings will be informal with 4-8 participants at each. Due to funding restraints, face-to-face groups will take place within England but, if there is sufficient interest from people living outside of England, then it may be possible to hold international focus groups using Skype. If you are interested in taking part in a focus group, please fill in your details in the following form: https://nottingham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/focus-group-expression-of-interest.

 

If you have any questions about either of these stages or any other aspect of my research, please feel free to PM me (my AVEN account name is motheaten), email me at aexsaro@nottingham.ac.uk, or leave a message in the thread below.

 

Best wishes,
Sam

If we can't on our PC, it must be a Europia thing.  Let me know whenever they give access to none UK people.

I'm in the UK and it didn't work for me initially, but check the link; there is an extra full stop (.) at the end of the URL which might be messing up some peoples' browsers.

 

try this link instead: https://nottingham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/identities-in-asexual-communities

 

If it's still not working, then maybe it's a Europia thing.

No joy with the link for me. I'm in the UK using a Mac with Safari.

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks to those who have already managed to complete either/both of the questionnaires.

 

For everyone else, I'm sorry about the links not working - damn full stops! I've asked timewarp if that can be changed. As far as I know, the questionnaire should work outside of the UK (and I've had responses from the USA and Asia so I guess that's a good sign). I'm wondering if it could be a browser issue... I've tried it in Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome and as far as I can see, it's working okay on all of those. I'm trying to get someone to double check it on Safari, too.

 

To clarify the links:

I've updated the links and removed the full stops. Now it should work. Sorry about that. Should have posted this after my morning coffee. :blink:

I've filled in the focus group form but I got interrupted while doing the questionnaire yesterday. 

I just wanted to say I really liked the fact I could save my answers and get a link e-mailed to me so that I could get back to it without losing anything - I'll hopefully have the time to finish it later today!

Honestly, I wasn't sure if having that option would be a good thing or not. I was a bit worried that lots of people would get bored part way through, save their answers and never go back to it (leaving me with hardly any responses). However, I know it's quite a long questionnaire so it seemed necessary to give people that option and you've proved the value of it! Thanks for taking part :)
