    well I am almost 54. But to your question - I think all of us are "Old", some of us just have less time on the planet than others.

    I'm 19 currently. Although for some reason when people guess my age online they usually aim a lot higher. :lol:
    I'm still not sure why that is.

    tobor: Yeah, probably. But I *can* fix that. ;) (Being a mod has its advantages. :))

    Edit: I set mine to 50.

    I suspect we'll see a normal distribution centered around the low 20s. If it wasn't for you old people skewing the numbers, that is.

    I fully expect to see a nice bell curve, with a peak in the 21-30 range (probably 21-25). :)

    Yes, we oldsters will tail the thing off, but it should be a quite good normal distribution.

    *cough* Well, I personally think "Forum elders" would be a far more respectful, and accurate, term for us mature types in here. :lol: Just be thankful that enjoyment of a game such as this is not limited to under 25's... it should give hope to younger people that they will not be 'over the hill' once they hit 30 (or whatever). :)
