Topic: Can I post a research recruitment ad in this community?

We're doing a research about how programmers understand lifetime/ownerships in Rust. If we want to recruit some participants for our study, which channel would be good to post such an advertisement, or we are not allowed to do so?

I don't know about policy here, but these are mostly folks that already work on the toolchain and standard library, so you'd probably get a bias toward understanding Rust :)

if you want broad reach, I'd go for an announcement in https://this-week-in-rust.org/

Seconding TWiR. That's the way to get the widest reach. Also try posting on the Rust reddit, and posting on Twitter with @rustlang.

Thank you all for the suggestion. Our team eventually decided to post one advertisement in this community, because you are professional and serious, and we would get good responses.
Question 1: I guess I should post it in the general stream, right?
Question 2: Can I ask an admin to pin it?

Zulip has no pinning facilities, so that wouldn't be possible.

#general stream is probably the most suitable place for a message such as this, if posting on zulip.

Thank you so much for the suggestion! We also posted one on the Rust forum. https://users.rust-lang.org/t/paid-online-research-rust-programmers-on-board-programming-experience-and-challenges/56869 We have got some really good responses, but we still need more...

will you be sharing the data once the survey is completed?

I didn't request to participate but I received an email with a survey link from rust.pennstate@gmail.com?
(I don't consider that spam, so no worries, I'm just surprised that I received a link even I didn't request one.)

Yeah, so did I. And it was a correction to a previous mail that I didn't get.
