You may not have noticed that near the top of the first page of topics in this forum is a topic posted by one of the staff here that this forum is for introductions only. This topic would be more appropriately posted in the pre-university statistics forum.

Now, please don't post this again there, just keep this in mind for future topics.

I suggest using the report post feature on your first post, and respectfully request that the moderators move this topic to the appropriate forum.
