    So, you've heard that there are 1+million members on TSR and has been over 5million unique visitors.

    What I'm wondering is, from the stats, why the owners haven't sold some advertising spaces to commercial companies (not unis and higher education ones, as I'm sure they wouldn't pay that much)? Surely they could make a killing?

    I also wouldn't underestimate how much a uni would pay to advertise here with such a large amount of prospective students

    :curious: They already do. Maybe you left adblock on by accident.
