Hello everyone, I’m a Portuguese student starting to think about my thesis. I have an interest in understanding user’s opinions about some of Mastodon’s core features. I would love to get some advice on how to make my work the best it can be! At the moment I am having trouble figuring out how to create a sample of an instance’s population that can be considered representative and achieved in an ethical way. Thank you all very much in advance I look forward to meeting you all!

@Antonio hm, with lots of direct informed consent as a good start I think!

@yoyehudi Thank you very much for the advice! I will make user consent a top priority!
