On the other hand, my difference from the majority of the group was what allowed me to see the things that I was interested in studying. My research questions dealt with the difference that gender can make: how one as a woman can merge (or not merge) into the male dominated gaming cultures, and what issues, problems and opportunities one is confronted with. Here, it was my difference from the majority of the studied group that made it possible to experience such aspects. It is also important to stress that a group cannot be seen as homogenous; all members have their individual perspectives and points of view.

Kendall’s text made me think in a new direction and made me look at research from another perspective, namely that of the informants. Because, as Buchanan (2009) says, we, as researchers, tend to discuss ethical guidelines at length and how they apply to our studies, but we seldom stop to ask ourselves what our informants get out of it. These two texts read together made me realize that, in the end, staying in the field after the work is fi nished may not be a bad thing after all. It may instead be a way to demonstrate respect towards the group members and show them that they are important and interesting, also after we have got what we came for, and had our research papers written and published.
