We did it! For the past
six weeks, you have all graciously tolerated my emails requesting participants
for my undergraduate senior thesis project on users’ motivations to contribute
to Wikipedia. On Monday, I reached out to this community, begging for just
eighteen more participants to reach my target sample size of 100 respondents. We
not only reached that goal, but exceeded it: 161 Wikipedia contributors
responded to my questionnaire!
responses are invaluable to my project and I cannot express my gratitude for
this community enough, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
When my final paper is
written in June, I will make it available to the Wikipedia community.
Thank you once again for
your insight, thoughtful questions, and feedback.
