Hello, I’m a student at Wilfrid Laurier University doing a school project for my entrepreneurial class. I’d love to know more about people’s road trip planning experiences and chat over a zoom call for 10-15 minutes. If you're interested reply to this thread. Thanks!

Hello mattvarriale - welcome to TravellersPoint!

You might want to look at the TP forum rules; I think this would come under the category of a survey which isn't allowed without express permission. In addition, you're expecting members to link up with you and do a zoom chat which will involve the risky process of revealing personal contact details but you don't feel the need to complete your profile page with details about you and a picture of yourself. You don't even give your name!

Quite rightly, we're giving this a wide berth!

After googling what a wide berth was, I've updated my profile to appear not like a bot. I should mention I'm not looking to sell anything at all. Additionally, I'm required by my school to provide a consent form to anyone who's willing to help me out.

The spirit of the site is that we're here to help travellers, rather than people wishing to sell things, helping students with their projects, etc.

Your post doesn't breach the letter of the forum rules, which say no survey links are allowed, and you've rightly asked people to engage with you here first. And you've put it in the Off Topic forum, which is meant to be more loosely moderated than the rest of the site. So for those reasons I'm letting it stay.

If people wish to engage with this then fair enough, but don't be disappointed if you get little response, since the forums are for travellers looking for advice.
