1. When did you first consider yourself a member of the Nerdfighter community?
As soon as I found out what a Nerdfighter was! That was September 2009, so almost a year.

2. Why did you choose to associate yourself with the Nerdfighter community?
It immediately struck me as the kind of community that was open to anyone, super fun, and shared similar interests as me. It also doesn't hurt that many Nerdfighters are also introverted so I'm not alone!

3. How has your involvement with Nerdfighteria influenced your personality?
I wouldn't say it's influenced my personality at all, to be honest. I am the same person I was before but I simply know more people who share the same interests, which is awesome!

4. Do you feel accepted, included & valued by the Nerdfighter community?
More so than any other online community I've been part of. It doesn't constantly feel like a competition to be the best here, everyone just is who they are.

5. Have you gained personal confidence through the acceptance into Nerdfighteria?
No, like I said, I knew myself pretty well and was comfortable with myself before Nerdfighteria, it just rules having like-minded people.

6. Do you feel discriminated against based on any grounds within Nerdfighteria? If so, why?
Only in my own head. Sometimes I feel as if I can't be a Nerdfighter because I am not a complete "nerd" in the traditional sense, at least. But that's more of a self-imposed discrimination.

7. Have you made personal connections with any other YouTubers through Nerdfighteria?
No. I've been lurking for a very long time. I'm working on it, though!

8. Do you believe that the internet, specifically YouTube & Nerdfighteria, has “the ability to connect with people based on common interests, rather than common location”?
Yes.

9. Do you believe that Nerdfighteria has enabled you to make connections with people internationally more easily?
No. The whole internet allows you to communicate internationally. Before I had ever heard of Nerdfighters, I had made some great online friends on other websites. Nerdfighteria is just another facet... I would say it just speeds up the process of finding similar people to myself.

10. Would you attribute the ability of so many nerds to unite as an international community is the result of advancing technology?
Yes. Yes yes yes yes!

11. Do you find it easy to manoeuvre YouTube and utilise the internet for communication?
I personally don't have any difficulty with it.

1. When did you first consider yourself a member of the Nerdfighter community?
About six months ago. Guesstimation.


2. Why did you choose to associate yourself with the Nerdfighter community?
Because I want to be made of awesome. And I love all of John Green's books.


3. How has your involvement with Nerdfighteria influenced your personality?
I have unleashed my dark side.


4. Do you feel accepted, included & valued by the Nerdfighter community?

A bit, I suppose.


6. Do you feel discriminated against based on any grounds within Nerdfighteria? If so, why?
Not really.

Not yet! Although I wouldn't really consider myself a youtuber.

9. Do you believe that Nerdfighteria has enabled you to make connections with people internationally more easily?
Yes, in a way.


10. Would you attribute the ability of so many nerds to unite as an international community is the result of advancing technology?

1. When did you first consider yourself a member of the Nerdfighter community?
When I first heard about what a nerdfighter was, and what it meant. Which was, if you need to know an actual time, July 2009.

2. Why did you choose to associate yourself with the Nerdfighter community?
Nerdfighters are made of awesome, and they reduce world suck. Who wouldn't want to become a part of that?


3. How has your involvement with Nerdfighteria influenced your personality?
I've noticed that I've become more open, and outgoing. I also find that I can do things like, sing my random songs in public, make extremely ugly/hilarious faces, and dance in public.

4. Do you feel accepted, included & valued by the Nerdfighter community?
Yes. I feel like we're all excepting of the things that we do because we all are nerds. We all understand.

5. Have you gained personal confidence through the acceptance into Nerdfighteria?
Yes! So much confidence. I used to not be able to do tons of things, but now I know that there are tons of nerdfighters, and I feel like there is no reason to not be confident, and not to absolutely love the way I am.

6. Do you feel discriminated against based on any grounds within Nerdfighteria? If so, why?
Not really. I don't feel like people are really sexist here, when they aren't joking. And age doesn't seem to matter, because there are tons of nerdfighters of all different ages.

7. Have you made personal connections with any other YouTubers through Nerdfighteria?
Yes. I've met YouTube friends, and now I have friends who make videos, and stuff.

8. Do you believe that the internet, specifically YouTube & Nerdfighteria, has “the ability to connect with people based on common interests, rather than common location”?
Yes. These sites can show that, even though someone is half way across the world, you can still be a lot alike. You can still be friends.

9. Do you believe that Nerdfighteria has enabled you to make connections with people internationally more easily?
Of course. Before my introduction to nerdfighters I had no friends in any place besides my own town. Now I have friends all over the world.

10. Would you attribute the ability of so many nerds to unite as an international community is the result of advancing technology?
A part of it, but not all of it. I think that Nerdfighteria could have expanded with all of the things we have today, but I know that a part of it has to do with the ability to use the internet to our advantage, by learning new things and meeting new types of people.

11. Do you find it easy to manoeuvre YouTube and utilise the internet for communication?
Superdyduperity easy.
