Hello, wonderful Sinners, and welcome to St Andrews!
The Sinner is an online community dedicated to the students of the University of St Andrews
We've got messageboards with help and advice for dealing with life in St Andrews, including ways to find Accommodation and buy/sell stuff.
We've got maps of all that's important in St Andrews with direct links to articles in the wiki-based Sinner's Guide to St Andrews, written by the people who know it best - that's you.
You can write magazine-style articles for the main website too - news and sports reports, write-ups of social events, reviews, or just anything else you want to get out there.
Speaking of social events, we've also brought the Calendar up to date, you can browse and add details of society and town happenings with ease.
More details on our new features after the break!
The Maps have been divided into useful sections, detailing the locations of Halls of Residence and pubs, and very soon shops, restaurants, University buildings, cash points and other really handy info. And if you'd like to learn about any of the places highlighted on the map, click on the link and you'll be taken to its article in the Sinner's Guide to St Andrews.
It's a brand new wiki-based guide that you can uodate yourself. As we use Wikipedia's MediaWiki software, those of you who are avid Wikipedians will have no difficulty navigating and editing the Guide. There's some content there already, but we want the Guide to be a comprehensive, relevant and accurate reference for St Andrews life, so we've provided a foundation and we're turning it over to you guys to build the rest.
We've got pages ready for your societies, sports clubs, academic schools, favourite pubs and eating places, and even things to do should your boredom reach a stage that even The Sinner can't overcome! If there's something that we've missed out, feel free to add it.
If you run into any technical difficulties, or spot something that's not working right, please let us know on the messageboards - or by e-mailing
