    And that would basically be about it Entertainment factor, perhaps too :p:

    This forum's no good at helping me with my grades anymore, in fact I'm a bit annoyed that you even mentioned anything of the sort

    I'd advise against it if you're also a uni student not from the UK, unless you're doing a survey or something for a research assignment and need some figures/willing guinea pigs for your experiements

    Excuse me? English speaking and language skills? Poor thing, I will make allowances for your ignorance, I don't know if you know this, but they actually speak English here! :rolleyes:

    No I first came here to get advice for assignments and to share my information that I had. And then there was the chat part of the forums? Why are we bothering you? Why Aussies, there are plenty of say, Swedish or American students here as well.
