And why did you sign up for it?
Why I signed up...
Expectations: For study purposes
Reality: To waste study hours by procrastinating
i was researching the railways of Shropshire and came across the Telford Steam Railway site. the rest is history.
Before I even made an account, I would browse through various threads, mostly the heated debates and about GCSE Science as they changed the specification for my year (2015).
I specifically signed up because I needed help on a question for Biology.
I found it when looking for information about access courses back in 2012/13.
I don't have a ****ing clue why I've stuck around.
Fall of 2009. Was looking for opinions on where to do my Master's degree.
I think I first saw it when a thread came up as a result when I was asking google why I was ******** so much.
I signed up so I had a place to talk about stuff people don't normally chat about, and so I could voice opinions that would be a bit too spicie for average irl chats.
in 2016 for exam question answers
signed up to ask about 6th forms
also because i saw stupid threads i wanted to reply to.
tsr biggest mistake of my life
Some sort of google search for something to do with school but can’t remember what the search actually was now. Decided to join because it seemed like a good place.
Some girl was banging on about it in biology class when we were dissecting hearts. Curiosity killed the cavy and joined because of the GCSE 2015 thread
I was looking for a solution around extra help for disabled OU students in exams and how to go about it, I didn't particularly target here, it just came up in the search engine, didn't sign up at that point though but did look at the threads from time to time for the next quite a few years. I finally signed up when I was trying to help out one of my children with a question and got annoyed with the constant adverts telling me to sign up.
I found TSR when looking for a good revision website for my GCSEs.
That was just over a year ago
April 2012: about a month before my exams at college. I can't remember why I signed up - but it definitely kept me sane that summer having people to talk to while I waited to hear results.
