    Age group of this Forum?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by bucket, Feb 1, 2010.

    So I'm curious as to the age group of this forum. The other forum that I'm active on is populated mainly by teenagers, and I'm curious to see the age group of a forum dedicated to creative writing.

    I turned 14 back in November, and I'm probably one of the youngest here. Out of all the other forums I've been on, this one definitely has the most diversity of age, culture, and personalities, that I've seen. :D

    I think you may not find it much different here.
    We have rather youthful congregation.
    Assuming that given ages are even honestly valid.

    The minimum recommended age here is thirteen, although whe have a few twelve year olds. Younger members than that are urged ont to remain without parental consent, although we can'tr really prevent anyone from lying about their age, or about having permission.

    The majority of members are in their teens and twenties, but we do have members up to their eighties.

    I'm fifty-six.

    I guessed you were close to that age, but not quite there yet,. Either way, 60 is no longer seen as as being that old. I've noticed that the older generation are generally as youthful as the younger generation to be honest. :)

    Anyways, I'm 26 as of a couple of weeks ago now and a mother of 3 adorable angels. My partner is a member here, he is 29, 30 in November (he hates it when I say that lol) but became inactive here in the last few months.

    I'm 30 as of sept 09. It hurts to say that. No longer in my 20's and it's not very different at all.

    I'm twenty-two. In nine months and four days I'll be twenty-three and officially over the hill. I can already feel my bones aching and my ability to remember important things fading. Speaking of age, Cogito looks damn good for someone who is fifty-six... no offense to those of you over the age of fifty-six.

    I'm 18, 19 in April, and that saddens me.

    I don't want to grow up...ever. :(

    :) You're only a few months younger than me. You're not going to stick at 29 for a few years? I figured I can probably get away with it until people stop carding me. lol
