TSR has hit 1 millions members! :woo:

In a series of threads, we're asking... What first brought you to TSR? and what made you sign up?

The most popular response we usually hear is people coming from Google for Study Help advice... is this the same as you?



Check out our other million member threads:

Google, don't know why I signed up though, must be a good site or something.

Should make a tag like that 10th birthday.

I was recommended the site by a girl I was taking to at the time. I took a look and thought it looked boring so never signed up but then a year or so later I was incredibly bored one day and ended up doing so. Far too many posts later, here I am.

For me, a friend linked me on MSN messenger to a thread about a chemistry exam (I think it was) saying how everyone was stressing about it. I didn't even do chemistry so left the site.

Then bored one day I searched my history and found that on TSR you get quite quick replies, so joined up...

I googled a maths question for my A-level homework (as i had quickly learned sometimes they are re-used so if you google it it sometimes comes up) and it directed me to a thread on here, and then i never left.

I was told to sign up by my A Level English teacher, as he wanted us to discuss the exam and techniques as much as possible. Looking back over past posts, I spent very little time doing so, and mostly used it to procrastinate during my A Level year. Never mind!

It was results day and I needed advice on changing course completely through UCAS clearing ASAP. TSR came up on google, looked good, had a dedicated section for UCAS discussion and was getting very fast replies so thought I'd sign up.

I first came across TSR completely by accident whilst bored and unable to sleep during the middle of the night. I was randomly searching for information about Junior Apprentice on Google, and found a thread on TSR about it.

Ever since that night, there hasn't been a waking moment when TSR hasn't been on my mind and I'm just so grateful that I did discover it because it was such a godsend of a website and it's helped me in so many ways.

Thank you so much, TSR, you sexy thing you!

Back in late 2004 I was using another forum site about a TV programme when someone started a thread linking to TSR, asking if anyone used the site. I took a look but didn't sign up, but several months later in 2005 I was applying for a PhD (that I decided not to do in the end) and had an interview coming up so came back to the site. I signed up and asked my question about the interview and then never left!

The fact that every time I googled something education related (or even non-educational for that matter) it come up on this website.

It's a fantastic website and have been using it since!

Summer 2009. I was ending sixth form, starting university and as I was googling a lot of questions about my upcoming time, I found TSR repeatedly came up within the results. In the end I decided to join and I've been posting ever since.

Because in the old days you had to have an account to download an exam paper someone had uploaded.
