Hey Harmonia Amanda,
For a current research project we are looking for active community members in Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons who are interested in filling out a survey and participating in an interview. The aim of the research is to identify opportunities for participation and access for new volunteers in the Wikimedia projects. For this purpose we would like to learn from the experiences of the already active community members and find out success factors for participation in the projects. Participation includes filling out a preliminary survey, a self-study and an interview.
'''If you are interested in participating, simply fill out this survey.''' The participants in the interviews will be selected on the basis of the answers in order to be able to consider as many different perspectives as possible.
All selected interview partners will receive a book or photo voucher of 25 euros as a thank you.
Feel free to forward this call to other people you think might share interesting experiences about Commons.
If you have any questions you can of course contact me or check the project page :) On the [https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikimedia_Deutschland/Neue_Ehrenamtliche/Recherche/Access_paths_to_free_knowledge Project Page] you can also find more information.
