Hi everyone,

I am currently researching for my undergraduate thesis, which I'm writing on Degrassi's online fan community. It would be awesome if you could help me out by taking this survey! It's the first in a series of surveys that I am going to be posting all around the online world of Degrassi fans. You can go ahead and fill out the whole survey if you want to; just check out my journal.

You can reply in a comment here or email me your answers: rachael.maddux[at]gmail.com, replacing [at] with @.

Thanks!
