    TSR is one of the biggest student forums. Supposedly. but I see all the same posters replying/making threads for example. (don't worry your're awesome for it though ).

    how big is the TSR actually? is it as big as it is? how many people use this site?
    is there a census or something similar for this site so we know what TSR population is?

    It's interesting to look at it on the Internet Map, which gives an idea of it's relative visitor numbers. It's actually fairly large for a site like this, Twitter.com is nearby on the map and you can see that although Student Room looks small in comparison, it's not really tiny like a lot of sites.

    Bear in mind that whilst there might be a smaller group of people who regularly post in the more social parts of the website, if you go into study help or university applications you get a much larger variety.

    that's interesting I'll take a look at that, thanks- I guess a lot of people are still lurking on here then? (not a bad thing) every student in the uk and other countries might not use TSR regularly but have still account perhaps

    It would be interesting to see stats of active members. I doubt that it's more than in the tens of thousands.

    ah right thats also interesting - I'm guessing TSR gets a whole load of new members around exam time / results day / mock results time when everyones posting about exams / results, which causes the site to crash? so its HUGE then

    is that like rounding very active posters up on each section and seeing how active they are? so a poster posting in a small section could be well known on a sub forum because not many people post on that sub-forum

    Do you dream about second rate scams, phony sex chat and people pretending they know about relationships?

    6 - 7 million unique people read it each month. About 2,000 different posters every day. Across the year, the number of posters will be in the hundreds of thousands.
