The ORIGINAL GCSE chat thread group of 2014 (Almost extinct and invaded by newbies). We had banter, chat room conversations and ....Tinychat. We also had narcissistic AlphaNick/Molecule/Temporaryuser_ with his 92,500 word revision notes who claimed to=o be many things...

One of my favourite stories (and I have millions) was when the TSR Transformation Competition in the Fitness section was so successful in the first instance, that for the second version the TSR management decided to up the ante in terms of how much the sponsors should be paying. Even though the sponsors were probably only getting like 5 new customers max, TSR decided that they should pay the same as what universities pay to advertise here, so the price went up from 3 bags of protein powder to something in the region of five figures. Needless to say, the supplement companies just didn't email back, probably assuming that the boys in Brighton were literal windowlickers. TSR then took this back, and decided to allow them to advertise at only a slightly inflated price, and this deal was once again ignored. Eventually, management realised that they were all stupid and asked one of the members here to negotiate for them. He just told the companies that the admins were all stupid, and they could stay on the same deal they had been on before. Thanks to his work undoing TSR's gaffe, the contest is now in about it's 8th season and has its own subforum. I don't know

The plot twist? The guy they asked to organise this business transaction is the same guy they banned for posting gay porn in AAM.

I might have some of the details wrong on this, but honestly I couldn't have made it up if I tried.

BTW I am nearly 100% sure the site has changed hands since then, but I wouldn't count on the new ownership to be any brighter.
Unis pay 5 figures to be here? :eek:

Mmmmmm don't quote me on 5 figures (that's the shakiest detail in the story, although it was definitely a lot of money compared to the <£200 in prizes they are currently giving out), but it is a lot more than you would think, depending on what exact content they are putting here. This is a huge forum and a huge percentage of members are looking for an educational institution. One extra student for a uni is what, 25k in tuition fees? TSR is kind of big business, they just didn't realise that they are not huge in the bodybuilding supplement world. Seems like an obvious thing to realise to you and me, but y'know... TSR gonna TSR.

I miss the sense of community on TSR. When I joined, there were way more big names, and way more individuals. The threads were all varied, and it seemed like every day I talked to someone different. Nowadays TSR just seems stagnant. All of the new members are either trolls or dupes, all of the threads are about Islam or some stupid troll nonsense, and the number of members with distinct personalities who I enjoy talking to is quickly being reduced. There was a massive culling last year when TSR banned basically everyone who made this site fun.
you should leave and venture into reddit

much better

ive only come back because i need to access certain employment threads

TINSEL :teeth:

Incidentally, I believe we should make the TSR Community Team answer the question "what is tea?" Would they get it right (without cheating), I wonder? :beard: :hmmm: :ninja:
I doubt they would - I think I could count the number of people who got it right without help/cheating on one hand!

I just looked through my old messages. It wasn't five figures. Apparently the usual rate was something like £8k. The offered the supplement company the "opportunity" to be here at half price.

That's still a lot. I understand how TSR works now. From what I've seen, there are at least 100 unis/landlords here...

I miss when you could actually log onto this site for intelligent conversation/reading, with the most recent threads containing something not isomorphic to one of the following:

"I don't get enough attention AMA"
"Boobs or bum guys? I need help deciding as I've never had either"
"I don't like your religion, come at me"
"What don't people find attractive about someone with nothing better to do than sit on a forum and argue about universities they've never been to?"

Oh, and the neg.
