What age is considered indecently old to be on TSR?

The Student Room forum is for students.

I know mature students exist but are there any non-students who are old and if there are old students, then how old is too old?

I'll kick off by saying 30 max.

There is no age limit on being a student, also there are several teachers on here who may find it worthwhile to get an insight into students views on, for example, how there course is taught. I think that at any age group there are people who would get something out of this site.

There is no age limit. The average age is irrelevant.

When I'm a teacher I'll still be here correcting info kids are giving to other kids

28 is too young, I am 22 starting uni this month and I'll leave at 26/27

There are good intellectual debates going on here (sometimes) that I will still be interested in.

Admittedly it's not particularly active, but there's a section specifically for parents, and teachers use the site too, both with 'legit' reasons.

Well, I've been on this site since I was about 12/13 (although was on another account with a cringey name for a few years during which I just lurked!) and am now 21. Going back to uni to do a 4/5 (possibly 6) year course after that and will probably still use TSR for a while, if I have the time. Generally I only use it if I'm in an extended period where I have little to do, once I'm a qualified doctor, I doubt I will have the time for it.

There is none. Perhaps if trivial topics like this and the trite that populates the relationship and debate subforums weren't here we would have more adult and insightful members. I can dream.

Now listen young man - cheeky monkey - in my day you'd have been thrashed for such disrespect for us wrinklies. 30 too old my a***

( For the record I am way older than that and recently got a warning for circumventing the no swearing rule - do I feel told off or what - yeah!)

I am thinking of doing a masters degree and also give advice to prospective nursing students

I'm 25 and think I'm getting a bit old for it now that I've finished education.

I started posting on TSR in 2004 when I was 20 and just about to start uni.

I'm now 29 and still here. Not a student any more, but I have kids at school (only primary school...but it still makes them "students" does it not? People who study are, by definition, students), and as Hopple points out there is a section for parents.

Besides I run the Pregnancy & Parenting society

I dont think there is an age. Ive seen people in their 50s post in the mature students section.
