Hey guys, my group for a communication class at IUPUI is looking at Pacers Digest to answer some research questions about group identification. We have four questions and would appreciate if everyone could take a few minutes to answer them. An answer to the questions and any elaboration would be awesome! Also, please PM me if you have a suggestion. Thanks!
Here are the questions:
1. As a member of Pacers Digest, who do you identify more with: the Pacers, the NBA, basketball in general, or sports in general?
2. By taking part in thread topics and discussions on Pacers Digest, do you have a feeling of community involvement?
3. Do you identify yourself with Pacers Digest? If so, when did this begin? When you were lurking, when you registered, when you first posted, or after you were a member for a period of time?
4. Do off-topic (non-basketball related) threads create a more community-like environment that provide greater reason to return to Pacers Digest more frequently?
