Flat Earth Community / Do you remember when you first joined?
« on: October 27, 2019, 04:18:38 PM »
Hey folks, I've been lurking around for the past couple weeks and I'm curious if you remember what it was like when you first joined the community?  I'm putting a few questions in here because I'm interested in learning about how you feel this community has changed over time.

Do you feel that an online forum like this is the best way to communicate ideas and discuss theories?

When you first joined the forum, did you consider other websites/forums?

What was the inciting incident that lead you to become a member of TFES?

Has there ever been a time where you encountered a user who ‘went too far’ in an online discussion?  For example, when have you met a user who was completely toxic or do you feel like most users here are friendly?


I am a student at DePaul University doing a study of online communities, and am interested in this site. It would be very helpful to my research to learn about someone's experiences as a participant.

This is a sociology class and we are studying virtual communities as a microcosm of material world communities.  I am interested in learning how you use this site as a way to discuss and investigate the Flat Earth Theory (Flat Earth Investigations and Flat Earth Theories are great boards for independent thought!).

No personal data (including site pseudonym if applicable) will be kept; the site will not be identified by name in the research presentation; and the goal is not to ridicule or delegitimize the site.

Would you be willing to participate in a short interview? For more information please reach out to me and I'll be happy to explain further.

Thank you for your time!
