Here's the deal. When I'm not volunteering for Scarleteen, I am a graduate student doing research on sexuality and gender in high school, and how it ties into social status. I've done a bunch of interviews already, but the next part of my project involves running an online discussion board (similar to what happens here, but only for a few weeks).

I really need to test out my questions and discussion topics ahead of time, and you all are so amazing and brilliant that it would be great to have your input. I'll set up a separate password-protected section of the forums here, so it won't be visible to anyone else, and over the next couple of weeks run through the discussion with whoever's interested and then ask for a little bit of feedback.

So, if you're interested, toss me an email at karyn@scarleteen.com with your board username, and I'll get you the password. It would be great to get 8-10 people participating, and I promise it won't eat up too much of your time. [Smile]

Did you want to limit the discussion to high school aged participants or would you be interested in input from university aged members as well?

The participants will be between ages 16 and 21, so I'd like to test it on the same age range.

I would love to participate. I am 19 and in University, so if you have enough people who are still in high school I understand completely.

I'm not limiting numbers with this, and so far it's just you and skiesofgreen who are interested. [Smile]

Double posting to say that it would be great to have two or three more people involved. If you're interested, leave a note here and I'll change your permissions to allow access to the area of the boards where this will be running.

So with the direct service break coming up, I think it would make more sense to start this after the break is over. (I know, I'm slow...it's been a busy few weeks!) Hopefully that's okay with all of you; I really appreciate you volunteering to take part in this.

Welcome back! I've gone in and changed the permissions for the four of you, so you should now be able to access the test forum, which is here: http://www.scarleteen.com/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi?/ubb/forum/f/53.html

It would be great if you could all pop in there and just post a reply to my first thread to let me know that you can access that area. If for some reason you cannot, please email me at karyn@scarleteen.com, and I'll let you know the password.

Is there anyone else who might be interested in taking part in this? It's gotten off to a very slow start and it would be fantastic to have another few people involved!
