Many of you responded to my "would you consider youself to be a geek?" thread a few weeks ago. Thanks for doing so. The numbers were overwhelmingly in 'Yes's' favour. :p: Now, in I ask, what makes TSR particularly geeky? And why? :smile:

Because it's a student forum as opposed to just a forum. You get a lot of pretty clever people who know their stuff here, and forums, by their nature are more "geeky" in most people's eyes compared to IM and Facebook.

It's on the internet.

It has a dedicated tech forum.

I was going to say this (but in a less eloquent manner).

Because there are people here who I can talk to about very particular areas of my course, and they often point me in the direction of other sources/literature....

Another one of these threads and you may find your gray matter penetrated by a carrot.

Mine's pink :p: I changed it.

Maybe that indicates I'm a girly geek?

OP:
From my experience at least, people who spend a lot of time on forums generally spend a lot of time on their computers, which is an activity seen as typically geeky. As someone else said, forums are seen as geekier than Facebook. Plus a lot of the threads are subject/news/politics related, even though you do still get the spam and the H&R.

It's related to the name. The Student Room. It's just not here to talk about 'sexy' topics like dressing styles, relationship-problems, music, ... At least not at a first glance

So the people coming here might be interested in information about the British higher education system (that was my reason to register), because they are a bit geeky/nerdy and like the attitude on here, because you can find very weird people on here that attract even more of them. Dunno...
