    Yes. Although I've been registered for years and my mum still thinks it's called "The Student Forum".

    My parents are pretty laid back, given the fact that they're old school and don't use the internet/know how to use it or the many various websites other than Google and Facebook, so No, to me mentioning TSR wouldn't bother them either way/ have any effect.

    Yeah, my mum knows. I won an Amazon voucher from TSR a few years ago and instead of lying about where it came from, I told her the truth - it was from a student website :teehee: she couldn't care less :laugh:

    Probably, though it wouldn't mean much to them.

    Not very up to date on technology etc.

    I don't feel the need to tell them? They probably don't know what it is anyway.

    I did tell them that I'm doing some volunteering for the DBS, but they've probably forgotten about it.

    Don't think they know it's TSR/what TSR is (my dad maybe sees me when he needs to use the computer). But I'd doubt they care too much about it anyway.

    Nope, my mum can't even read English let alone understand social media and forums. She doesn't know how to use technology either.

    My parents didn't know until this thread was created I decided to go and tell them. Lets just say it didn't end well and all hell is breaking loose right now and I'm stuck in the middle of it :afraid:

    They have a good sense of humour to be fair.

    I guess being decent people they probably would not be too impressed with the occasional racism, sexism, misogyny, narcissism, psychopathy etc.

    Sort of. They tend not to care much for my online activities, but I don't hide it from them either.
