Mazda 3 Forums Users

Hey everyone, I am doing a research project, for school, about the online experience of a particular website. I myself own a 2007 Mazda3 Hatchback AT, so I decided to join this forum and use it as my study. I will be doing interviews to see how people use this particular forum to gather information, meet new people, and much more. What I need is a good amount of people to conduct interviews and I'll need continuous consent of the people who choose to participate. If anyone is interested, please continue on this thread saying you are willing to particiapte or you can send me a private message and I'll continue on from there. Thank you all in advance.

^^ hahaha

How do we use this forum to gather information... Hmm, well if using the search, you may need to trick it into showing you the results you're looking for. The search function (at least in the past, I haven't tried lately) does not just 'allow' one to gather information. There is usually a lot of fighting and swearing.

I think that was an attempt to be humorous, but what i mean to say is i guess i could help if it doesn't take hours of my time

You don't so much use the forum search feature as you share in the forum search feature experience, and if it happens to do something useful while you're there, so much the better.

I'm a new member on this forum, and a new Mazda owner (August 2012).

I'd be willing to help you out.

pick a scenario

1) newb A joins forum and asks what bolt-ons he can buy to make power, even though there is a stickied thread and 100 similar threads to his

2) newb B joins forum and asks about a "chip" that costs 40 bucks and adds 100 hp.

3) newb C joins forum to rant about his experience with Mazda, even though Mazda Corporate has nothing to do with dealership employees.

then the thread gets trolled by one of the forum regulars (xcnuse, sdemo, adumbrille etc)

then that one member trolling alerts every other person, and a trolling cascade begins.

then out of no where the trolled thread becomes a serious thread and the forum regulars start arguing, usually about 2-5hp gains.

then an admin locks thread.

the cycle then starts again
