Hello all

My name is MR and I've been a member of the Volunteer Team for just over two years now! :shock:

I didn't realise it had been this long... So I thought, why not make an AMA?

So go ahead, Ask me Anything

How about starting with the big one, that I should probably know the answer to: What do the VT actually do in the background?

We pedal bicycles to make the electricity for the site :yes:


Genuine question: 04MR17 do you ever see yourself leaving TSR and if so why?

A solid question. :yep:

The Volunteer Team (VT) have a little private forum where we discuss ongoing plans for the site in terms of running threads and things. For example, initial planning for the tokyo 2020 olympics and paralympics forum took place there, before things got set up properly in public. However, we aren't involved in any decisions to do with the site itself, like changing the community guidelines, closing forums or making tech changes.

We also help to support and mentor some of our wonderful Forum Helpers and do a lot with them too.

We used to get some selling washing machines and kitchens. Don't think they are knocking about any more (certainly not getting past the automatic filters anyway), but they were fun. :lol:

Probably the TSR Pub Quiz 2017. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4987794

It was the first (big) project I set up when I became a Forum Helper, and I put a huge amount of time and effort into it (way way way beyond the usual expectations).

However, there is always something special about being part of the TSR Results squad each year too, so that comes as a close second.

Do you feel your time as a purple person has damaged your enjoyment of the site, having seen it from a different angle? :holmes:
