A place for research requests

Recommended Posts

HI.

 

I think there should be a special place /category just for people who want help with their research, so that people who are interested in taking part can easely find it. Creating a special folder for research requests would make it easyer for both researshers and people who want to take part.

If there is already such a folder then I have managed to miss it.

What do you mean by unhidden? You should be able to see it. You can also reply to requests. The fact that you cannot post a new thread there is fully on purpose, because recruiting participants for research needs approval according to our Rules for Researchers and Students.

 

To be clear, posting research requests elsewhere on the forum without approval is also against the rules.

Not completely sure what the OP meant by "unhidden", but perhaps they mean as the forum should be as its own, rather than a subforum. It's been brought up before and goes more in detail:

I feel like it might still be relevant.

Good point @SpoopyWorld. My personal opinion is that the subforum works fine. If you look at the number of views, by now they are pretty similar to those of old requests in Announcements. What I do notice is that requests with a very specific topic sometimes get less views than those with a more generic one. @sea-lemon, what do you think?

This is exactly what I meant :)
