Some of you may remember a few years back, a PhD student from the UK posted a survey that asked Foldit players about why they play, and their general thoughts and feelings about the game. I was researching online citizen science projects and why and how people participated.
Last year I submitted my thesis (sucessfully) and have recently had a paper published in the journal Science Communication that is based on my findings for Foldit players. I have produced a summary of those results in case any of you are interested. I notice that quite a few who took part in my research are still here! If anybody would like a copy of this summary, please email me at email@example.com (I can't upload a Word document to the forum) and I'll send you a copy.
Many thanks to all those who participated and gave me such wonderful feedback.
