    Ok so I have an idea which would be great. If we all donate towards a fund held by the admin (so we don't get scammed) we could buy our own TSR island we could use for meet-ups etc. It would be so cool. Perhaps even subscribers could use it all year round, not just meet ups as a special perk. This would just be great, an island only for students, a dream come true. We could even have revision weekends etc.

    Ok here are a few ideas of what we could get for our money:

    If we could raise 65,000 we could get 8 beautiful acres:

    Or if we could get around 20,000 donated we could get something along the lines of this: (30,000 converted to GBP, VERY ROUGHLY.

    I am rerally excited about this idea and would definately donate, anyone interested?

    Thanks for reading.

    You know buying an island is more plausable than it sounds.

    There are hundreds off the cost of Croatia that are for sale

    Yes, but i'm sure many people could find some to spare, by maybe passing on that take away or extra drink.. which would also be beneficial to their health.

    This is after all, a great cause

    I wish this wasn't a joke/sarcasm But hopefully you would be able to donate a sizable amount when you are?

    I know it is plausable, hence the thread Just need to get more people on board with the idea!

    I was hoping for something a little closer to home for the majority of TSR users (U.K) so it would get more use.

    I believe it was a reference to paying back tuition fees after you earn more than 21k pa.

    It won't end well, and I will blame the TSR Socialist party
    Haha, well I guess we would have democracy, and I guess left wing policies may be implemented. But haha I dobut we would have government so we wouldn't need to worry.

    You should let the rest of the admin team know, and get a section for donations and start planning It will really be an asset to your site.
