My name is Anisha and I am a final year student at UCL (University College London) and like the most of you, I am a keen Wikipedia user.
This is why I have chosen Wikipedia to be the subject of my dissertation and would be extremely grateful if you could take a moment to answer
just 5 short questions that will aid my project and my endeavours to understand why Wikipedia has become such a success.
For how long have you been using /contributing articles towards Wikipedia?
On a scale of 1 – 5 (with 5 being a high amount of trust and 1 a low amount) How much do you trust the content displayed on Wikipedia?
Why (if at all) do you trust the content displayed on Wikipedia?
What compels you to contribute information to Wikipedia?
What is it about Wikipedia that you find most appealing?

I would ideally appreciate a response by 10
th March 2006 – however the sooner it gets to me the better. My email address is [hidden email].
Should you have any further enquiries, or any further information you would like to share with me, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me.
Thank you in advance, your co-operation has been much appreciated.
Apologies if you have received this email more than once.
