General Age of NS'ers?

Postby MasterChief7994 » Tue Mar 08, 2011 8:35 am

What is the general age of people on NationStates?

I'm kind of curious. I know some are in high school, college, and some aren't in either.

I generally think of others on the forum as in high school and older...I can't really see a nine year old playing, although its possible.

As for myself, I'm still in school.

Yeah, that's because 9 year-olds get deleted on sight.

Given that we have a minimum age of 13 for forum participation, any nine year olds posting in this thread are going to have a problem.

Your poll needs some work. There's a gap from 16 through 18 ("Under 16" or "Over 18") and many people will qualify as both "Over 18" and "Over 25".

I'm so old I had to walk to school uphill both ways in the snow, while the temperatures reached 110 F. Plus I didn't have any shoes.

So... is 'above 40' the joke option?

Although I'm not in the 18-22 age group, I'm pretty sure that's the one most NSers are in.

Suggest amendment to poll:

1. Born Yesterday
2. Old Enough to Know Better

I think this would cover NSG perfectly, without the need for surplus options bloating the poll up and being liable to break off at any time in clumps and clog the tubes.
