    TSR is what it says on the tin; a 'room' for students (and people from beyond). People can pretty much ask about/discuss anything, on any topic, whether it's academic, university related, or just a social/domestic matter!

    It’s a mystery
    indeed - and much as I love a mystery, I also like to know who I'm dealing with - especially when they (TSR) say they are offering me so much!!

    Hi
    I've read those and am not much the wiser - eg - who set the company up and who are the owners or the directors? What is the business model ..I'd be grateful if you can point me in the direction of that information.

    I doubt companies put their business models on their websites.

    That depends on what kind of company they - and that's what I'd like to know.

      How they make money?

      ADVERTISING.

      Not just the standard ads (and tracking cookies) you get on forums, either. For the record, TSR seems fairly okay in this regard - I don't see a facebook.com script running anywhere on the front end! Just scorecardresearch.com and a couple of ones I haven't heard of before.

      They provide companies with a uniquely large student demographic to advertise to, for market research and, of course, content for lazy journalists. Not just ads in the sidebar or wherever they show them, but also by representatives (sometimes, I suspect, undisclosed).

        Why wouldn't they? They tend to want to advertise their services.

        P.S. that Wiki article reads as though it was written by a TSR user, it is neither an objective or complete article.
