I forwarded your feedback to Jodi and she responded by making an update:

What do you think?


P.S. If you have any other suggestions, would you put them directly on the talk page(   It's easier to keep a coherent record if you talk to the researcher directly.

It looks great. In the Confidentiality Section, it is stated: 'In any sort of report we might publish, we will not include any information that will make it possible to identify a subject'. Can you highlight/stress that anonymity will be preserved prior to the statement. It's self evident I know, but subjects/respondents may like to see the word 'anonymity' stated clearly ;-)

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I want to close this review, but there's one more thing I want a second opinion on.  Jodi posted her consent form yesterday:

It's a brief read.  Please have a look.

Hey folks,

I'd like to offer a new request for subject recruitment for your review:

I think this project is ready, so I need your input.  I'd like to close the discussion by Monday, May 14th.


 *   Researcher: Jodi Schneider from the Digital Enterprise Research Institute
 *   Recruitment: 10 new participants in AfD discussions (via 40 Special:EmailUser invitations)
 *   Study: 1 on 1 interviews
 *   Primary RQ: Where are newcomers having trouble participating in AfD discussions?

Looks good to me. Jodi has conducted interviews with community members in the past, and has always done a sterling job. I commented to point out that Maryana and I recently got brief Q&A data about AFD and PROD from about 40 editors,[1] though our questions were more about the user talk notifications for those processes.
