    What do you like about the site? i've been here for 20 minutes but i've been here just as long as you just without an account. What has you being an 'established' member got to do with anything?
    The discussions, the subscribers features for two. Because you're telling me to leave the site for no reason when I regularly contribute to it, which is stupid

    Their are discussions on other sites... this isn't the only forum in the world. Subscriber features like what? Who reps you? You can find that out for free on other sites with the rep function. What does 'established' even mean i've been on this site longer than you have... I do have a reason for telling you to leave (read back)

    It's sad because you're are still using a website that is not intended for people out of education. If you've made friends on here why don't you talk to them through other means?
    Why is there a careers forum then? What's the point in that if only people studying can access it? Isn't it advantageous to have people who no longer study but actually now do to help people know what they should do themselves?

    Yeah well I like this one because of the format and the people on it. No, the backroom.

    It means I regularly contribute to the site. And your reason is a dogmatic view of "IT'S CALLED THE STUDENT ROOM AND YOU'RE NOT ONE OMGZZZZ"

    The careers forum should only have people who are in education posting in it. People in education can find advice through the blog posts here on the official main page and through various external means.

    Have you ever looked at the careers forum?

    It just strikes me that you've got absolutely no idea how it works in the real world, away from your magical ideal world of fairies and elves.

    Yeah well you haven't tried every popular forum so you wouldn't know you like the format and the people on this site the best.

    My reasoning makes complete sense and is hardly dogmatic. It only takes reading the site logo to understand this, or do you have dyslexia?

    Yeah I am dyslexic actually, thanks for asking.

    No it doesn't make sense. Anyone can use a public forum. That's why they have areas like relationships and chat. If it were specifically about studying those areas wouldn't exist.

    Why does it bother you? Seriously you're being childish

    Does it?

    I think it's relatively ambiguous. After all, it's not "The Students' Room", it doesn't belong to them.

    Anyone can use a public forum because it's not like the mods are going to ask for certificates with proof that you are a student for every account sign up... The site has areas like relationships and chat for STUDENTS ​who want to talk about relationships and want to chat.

    And when people stop being students they don't have to suddenly leave

    Yes they do... or maybe not suddenly they can have about 2 weeks.

    Because the site is not being used for who it is to intended for

    Well done. That's you, but it's patently obvious that many people do make completely ****ed up decisions and could clearly benefit from having other people involved in the decision making process.

    Again, you're taking the extreme position that involving others = them making your decisions for you. That's clearly idiotic. What most sane and rational people are talking about is utilising the knowledge and experience of people who have been there and done that to help you make an educated decision. If you'd rather make a decision based on no background, then you're going to be wasting a lot of time in the future.
    Excellent post, thank you.

    Personally, being so certain that no older relative could possibly know anything, of any use or value, is not a sign of confidence. And refusing to even discuss or even disclose what university one is going to is, to say the least an extreme position.
