Help with the master thesis - Search for interview partners

Please Login to Comment

Hello dear community,

I am a student at the Technical University of Darmstadt and in need of your help for my master’s thesis. I am examining the topic of explorative and exploitative behavior in online communities and want to understand your actions on Thingiverse and how they are influenced by your personality traits.

Therefore, I am currently looking for interview partners who are willing to tell me about their experiences on Thingiverse in a 30 to 40-minute interview.

Between the volunteers (approximately 10 participants) a 50€ Amazon voucher will be given away as a small thank you. If you are interested, I can also provide the results of my thesis to you. The interview is possible in English and in German. Your data will of course be treated confidentially and will only be used in connection with this thesis.

If I caught you interest, please sign up with your e-mail address to the following doodle list at your preferred time. Afterwards I will send you a invitation to the Zoom call. It is first come, first serve.

Many thanks in advance!


Hi everyone, I am still looking for volunteers for my interview. I would really appreciate it if you could take 30-40 minutes. Thank you very much in advance!

I'm in California, USA and I'd be willing to participate. Based on timeslots on the doodle page, 11pm CET would be 2pm PST, unless I'm converting time incorrectly. I'll select a few in a range that I can participate :)

Please specify your time zone. Because you are offering Euros, are you considering subjects only in the EU? There are many people from the United States and Australia who may be interested; in fact I'd wager most Thingiverse users are in the United States.

Hello, thank you very much for the hint. The doodle list is in the CET time zone, but anyone who wants to participate is welcome. There are no restrictions on participation.
