Forum home Problem solving

Who are moderators or admins?

Hello Gardeners' World community, 

Like the titles says

I am a final year student studying Product design at the University of Huddersfield. The University asks me to gain permission from a moderator/admin before asking the public on a forum.

I would like to post my questionnaire about gardening and get an insight into the frustrations and problems from gardening from the community who has first hand experience. From this research I can then go on to design and possibly prototype a product to help solve said found problem.

If i am no allowed to post then that is perfectly fine. 

Thank you for your time, II_Mullin_II

    This is an open forum which is free to access as long as you follow the rules about content and manners and so on.   It is owned and managed by the publishers of Gardeners' World magazine and they employ admins and moderators to oversee.  @NoraGW is the person to contact via private message or an open post as you see fit.

    We get quite a ot of students asking for help with surveys about garden products and projects.  The response they get from forum members can vary from engagement to ridicule and that depends on how well the survey has been designed and the nature of the subject matter or product.

    let's hope it's a good one @u1567191 ;)
    So many surveys are trying to "reinvent the wheel" , or find "solutions" where no problem actually exists.

  • My aim is trying to find the actual problem areas. This is where the community is so important as I hope to open up the thread to discussion as well as the questionnaire if approved.

    I can tell you the main problems raised on the forum.  1) How do I stop next door's cat carping in my garden and, 2) How do I stop slugs eating my plants? :)
  • @NoraGW - I have sent the required email from my university email address on the 1st Nov, however I have not currently heard anything back. I was just looking for a quick update on the situation.
