    Why do they only open these things up to that slice of the users? It seems a bit short-sighted to not take into account a much larger representation of the users.

    :lol: asking the wrong person, I'm afraid.

    I imagine the majority of users are in those categories though, so at most you'd only want maybe 2-3 people from other categories, but I see what you're saying.

    Lol okay but I don’t know, the point of having a wider sample/wider demographic is that you get different angles and input. If you restrict your selection then the feedback will be narrow and that will limit the effectiveness of such a session.

    It should be based on people who use the app a lot irrelevant of their age/stage of study. I know a couple of people who use the app tons that don’t fit into that category and their feedback on this would be really useful probably.

    This is why diversity is valued so much in big companies etc.

    As it is I don’t use the app at all so this isn’t because I want to be involved I just generally think it’s a bit restrictive and limits the diversity of opinion. But maybe that’s actually wanted.

    A £20 voucher for 2 hours of your time (not incl travel time) is a bit pathetic.

    We're taking into account all users, it's just this session that is aimed at this age group.

    All of the surveys and other tests have been for other ages.
