When you were younger (in forum terms) you were more eager and were not as cynical.

A lot of forums seems to have a sort of 'generational' heirachy.

I've seen some forums where it gets to the stage where 'oldies' only talk about the good old days, and only post to complain about the new members. That's more crap than new people joining.


I think that people get complacent with it all. If a forum isn't the same as you think it was before, don't forget that it's the contribution of all members that makes a forum. Don't expect the rest of us to come up to scratch without you.

By the way, that post sounds hostile and argumentative. It's not meant to be. I'm just crap at wording things at this time with indigestion.

EDIT: don't forget that you've probably changed too. Yes.
EDIT: Changed the complaing bit to 'new members'. thought i'd highlight that as this post has been quoted

Does it really matter?? TSR (UKL) is just a bit of fun. I just come on to keep abrest of university issues, advice on uni/career stuff, and debate sometimes Its not supposed to be an essential component of someones social life and complete existence. If it ceased to exist tomorrow, it'd be no biggy, just one thing less to use to avoid doing work.

It does sound slightly hostile and argumentative, but it's so true

exactly!!! sometimes i see people here getting pissed off and **** and wonder how somebody can be like that over something thats online. otherwise i kind'a like tsr. everyone here seems to put across opinions backed with valid arguements unlike some other forums ive been on where people just shout non-sense.

ps didnt know swear words are filtered, kind'a surprised.
