I was hoping to recruit subjects for my dissertation on stress regulation through WOW on the forums or through paid advertising. I've had a lot of positive feedback from the livejournal community of ladies of WoW, WOWInsider, and through some guilds. I tried writing the moderators but have not gotten a response as of yet. How should I proceed? Thanks very much!

Survey posting by outside parties is allowed only for educational purposes. Commercial surveys, or surveys without an academic background are expressly prohibited and will be immediately removed.

Prior to posting any survey, you are required to contact one of the following Forum Administrators:

And to provide verified contact information and academic credentials, including a university associated e-mail address from which the request originates. A full, unaltered copy of the survey questions must also be provided.

All other survey posts will be removed and the originating account banned.

In-forum poll system exemption: This amendment specificlaly does not cover in forum polls generated by forum users. The intent is to prevent unnecessary spam by outside entities with no real investment in the forum system.

Your best bet is probably to email kaolian, who should get back to you probably within a few days or so i'd imagine.

Thanks very much! This is very helpful. I was likely emailing the wrong admin.

Can't we just please tell the survey folks to find a new horse to beat? Although it is true that I don't have to click on survey threads, I don't think anyone here comes to be a survey participant. Surveys don't add value to the site, we never see any feedback from the research, and after awhile it just gets annoying in a "Hare Krishna in the airport" sense.
In Chinese: glasses are yanjing; eyes are yanjing, and the beer of Beijing is Yanjing. When speaking, the difference is in the tones. Did I just order a glass of beer or a glass of eyes?
