Admin: I tried my best but if this is the wrong section please move this thread. Thanks.

My name is Qing Jiang and I'm a grad student at the University of Illinois. I am conducting research on user generated sci-fi content and looking for your opinion.

If you write and/or read user generated content I would love to hear from you for any/all of these questions.

1. As a writer, would you like to make money from your content?

2. As a writer, if a service existed that allowed you to upload your content and embed it on other websites would you use it?

3. As a reader would you like to be able to read stories in one cohesive document rather than in multiple posts?

4. As a reader would you be willing to pay for regularly updated, high quality content? If not pay, would you view advertisements to support the writer?

Thanks for the time!

1) Yes
2) No
3) I already do via various reading apps and there are apps available which can be used to download a website for offline reading
4) Maybe, but I doubt it.

What kind of, um, snake oil are you proposing here?


Oh, and btw, you're not the first one with these kinds of questions and ideas to pass through these parts.
