    Hi everyone,

    We are currently playing around in the TSR office with a brand spanking new, Google powered TSR search. Woohoo!

    The plan is to make it live at some point around March and we would like YOU to help us make it brilliant before we launch it.

    We are looking for 3 regular users of TSR to pop into the office this Friday 26th February for 30 minutes. We will pay for your travel expenses and give you a tenner for your time. Plus of course, you can meet the team and see the office if you would like to. And there will no doubt be biscuits.

    So, if you would like to be the very first TSR members to try the new search and help us shape one of the most important parts of the site - please email me on jack.wallington @thestudentroom.com (without the space) with the time you would like to pop in.

    The people who apply must be in Yr 12 or 13, or in the first year of university.

    Yes, we are interested in different groups of people. There will be other testing for other age groups. In this instance, we are focusing on Yr 12 - 1st year of uni.

    Cool It's very exciting, this is one of the most important things to ever be done to TSR. If we get it right, it will improve the site so much for everyone, and help even more students find the great advice on here.

    Thank you - we have another session for people who don't use TSR, so that will be useful. The session on the 10th is for people who use TSR quite heavily.

    Hi everyone,

    We are currently playing around in the TSR office with a brand spanking new, Google powered TSR search. Woohoo!

    The plan is to make it live at some point around March and we would like YOU to help us make it brilliant before we launch it.

    In the first instance, we are doing some user testing on the 10th February in the TSR office in Brighton (right next to the train station). It will involve playing around with the brand new search.

    We are looking for 3 regular users of TSR to pop into the office on the 10th for 30 minutes. We will pay for your travel expenses and give you a tenner for your time. Plus of course, you can meet the team and see the office if you would like to. And there will no doubt be biscuits.

    So, if you would like to be the very first TSR members to try the new search and help us shape one of the most important parts of the site - please reply below.
    Ah :gah:

    The people who apply must be in Yr 12 or 13, or in the first year of university.
