Hello, I am a senior anthropology student and I am preparing to write a paper on an online community. I have visited sites such as this one in the past and I thought it would be an interesting topic to find out more about the community here at black hair media. I would like to interview people who are familiar with this site. I have included a questionnaire below and you can post your responses here or answer them in a private message. Thanks in advance!

1.     How did you learn all the terminology and abbreviations used on the site?

2.     Do you ever find yourself confused about the terminology or do you think that it is easy to figure out?

3.     How long have you been using blackhairmedia?

4.     What are the differences between the member statuses (i.e. platinum member, elite member, junior member, new member) and how does status affect interactions on the boards? Are there certain benefits to having a higher status? Do people trust the advice of higher status members more than that of lower status members?

5.     What boards do you most frequent?

6.     Why do you visit these boards the most?

7.     How would you describe the culture here at blackhairmedia (i.e. do you think it is competitive, supportive, hierarchical, etc.)?

8.     What do you like most about blackhairmedia?

9.     What do you like the least?

10.  Have you formed relationships with any members of blackhair? Do you ever specifically read posts if you see that they are by a certain member?

11.  Do you feel that you can freely discuss any topics that you want or do you feel that there are certain topics that are against the rules to discuss or that you would receive negative feedback from the other members?

12.  Would you be interested in conducting a more in-depth interview?

I think it would be better to ask the girls who have been members for a while....but since you don't have enough points (meaning not a lot of posts + being "thanked for" gives you points) you cannot post on Talk section for everyone who is junior member and above.
Post a bit more on sections that you can help and then try to either open a thread on the talk section for everyone or just post in one of the already open threads there.

1.   How did you learn all the terminology and abbreviations used on the site?

There are several threads in the hair part which helped also just google

2.     Do you ever find yourself confused about the terminology or do you think that it is easy to figure out?

Easy
3.     How long have you been using blackhairmedia?

Two and a half years

4.     What are the differences between the member statuses (i.e. platinum member, elite member, junior member, new member) and how does status affect interactions on the boards? Are there certain benefits to having a higher status? Do people trust the advice of higher status members more than that of lower status members?

Depends on where you post. As a platinum member you can see other boards that normal members can not see. This private fourm is kinda boring. I would not trust the advice of a new member in the hair boards. Many of them are scammers.

5.     What boards do you most frequent?

Weaves and TTT

6.     Why do you visit these boards the most?

They hold my interest

7.     How would you describe the culture here at blackhairmedia (i.e. do you think it is competitive, supportive, hierarchical, etc.)?

Hair boards are supportive, TTT is rough. I find it can be supportive but many times a normal topic turns ugly due to a few members.

8.     What do you like most about blackhairmedia?

The knowlegde of members are hair issues and the one-liners in TTT

9.     What do you like the least?

Lack of deep political topics without name calling, no clear moderation

10.  Have you formed relationships with any members of blackhair? Do you ever specifically read posts if you see that they are by a certain member?

Yes but I know this person offline too

11.  Do you feel that you can freely discuss any topics that you want or do you feel that there are certain topics that are against the rules to discuss or that you would receive negative feedback from the other members?

No

12.  Would you be interested in conducting a more in-depth interview?

Depends on how more in-depth

Thanks so much for your reply! Can you clarify number 11? Did you mean no, you don't think that you can talk about anything or no, there are no topics that would be received badly by other members?

Yes, I only posted in the new member section since I couldn't start a new topic on the other thread. I suppose I will try posting on one of the open threads since I can't wait four months to reach junior status. My paper is due in a few weeks lol Smile. I was just afraid people will get mad if I post something off topic.

No topic that will be received badly. Even topics which a lot of people might not like, there are still posters that will post in the topic seriously in TTT.

How did you learn all the terminology and abbreviations used on the site?
I usually ask but most of the time I kind of infer what it means based on the context it is used, if that makes sense.
  Some forums have a list of what the abbreviations.

2.     Do you ever find yourself confused about the terminology or do you think that it is easy to figure out?

PrePretty easy.  I have been a member of various hairboards so it is somewhat a standard.


3.     How long have you been using blackhairmedia?

     I wanna say almost 10 years.  This is my second screenname.  Last one I forgot the password and it was connected to an email account I disabled years ago.

I

4.     What are the differences between the member statuses (i.e. platinum member, elite member, junior member, new member) and how does status affect interactions on the boards? Are there certain benefits to having a higher status? Do people trust the advice of higher status members more than that of lower status members?

  I   I honestly don't see much of a difference between member statuses except where you can start threads.  Otherwise, me being a ____ member doesn't open keys to the kingdom for me.

5.     What boards do you most frequent?

       I frequent BHM, specifically the Natural Hair threads and maybe TTT.

6.     Why do you visit these boards the most?

   I  I have natural hair and need ideas to maintain  and style it.

7.     How would you describe the culture here at blackhairmedia (i.e. do you think it is competitive, supportive, hierarchical, etc.)?

     Clique-y but not necessarily in a bad way.  It kind of reminds high school, but this time I am not pressed to curry favors from folks.  But I will say this, if you are sincere, folks will go out of their way to help you. 

8.     What do you like most about blackhairmedia?

      It's somewhat honest.

9.     What do you like the least?

     Too many things to mention.

10.  Have you formed relationships with any members of blackhair? Do you ever specifically read posts if you see that they are by a certain member?

       I wouldn't say relationship but something of a rapport with several members in a sense that I respect their ideas and opinions and they make me think.  Not really but when I see it, I am somewhat jazzed about it.

     

11.  Do you feel that you can freely discuss any topics that you want or do you feel that there are certain topics that are against the rules to discuss or that you would receive negative feedback from the other members?

       I feel no hindrance in discussing anything that is considered taboo.   It's just seems like number of the threads in TTT is superficial and frankly I don't feel compelled to comment.



12.  Would you be interested in conducting a more in-depth interview?


       Sure.
