    Hello everybody!
    I am back here looking for gamers over 65 years who want to participate in my study. I had already talked to some of you and learned a lot. So I was wondering if you can recommend someone else it would be great! This may be the first study of this type in Australia!

    If you:

    • Play MMORPG Games or any online game with other people
    • Are over 65 years of age
    • Are in Melbourne (it is not necessary that you live in Melbourne, but we should meet here)
    • Would you like to participate in a research study?

    The purpose of the study is to learn from your expertise and design technologies to support socializing in online games.

    The study involves an interview and discussion about your online gaming experience.

    Contact Romina Carrasco: rcarrasco@student.unimelb.edu.au

    Further information at: http://people.eng.unimelb.edu.au/rcarrasco/

    This is a TOG approved announcement.

    Thank you so much Claw for your commentary, I visited Claw last week and we had a great conversation around his experience with online games, specifically I learned a lot about Battlefield and how he enjoys it!

    Toggers... if you know someone who can participate in my study please send me a message.

    I'm old enough, but I'll need a plane ticket to Australia for the interview.

    PenGun, thank you for volunteering :)
    It is so sad that you are so far away.
    I am considering to do an online study in the future, in that case, I will have you on mind.
    Enjoy your gaming!

    Hello Xcel8-2-50+
    Thank you for your interest in participating in my study. As it has been so difficult to find participants, I might be considering opening for gamers over 60 years old. I will write a mail when I have this confirmed.
    Regards,
    ROmina
