    I Wonder What The Average Age Of Forum Members Is

    The reason I ask is because the opinions, attitudes, queries,responses, of posters is based many times on the era in which they grew up. I don't have a clue as to the average age and will not even quess.

    Re: I Wonder What The Average Age Of Forum Members Is

    Well, I'd venture a guess, but are we talking active forum members here at FG? or just average FG member, whether active or not? or average age of members of all forums?

    Whichever, though, I would posit that Forums are generally inhabited by a more mature population these days.
    I am going to say that early to mid 60s is a pretty good guess for FG.

    I would have guessed younger but you may be right.

    I will be three-quarters-of-a-century old in November.

    Anybody older?

    Maybe take a poll, Lon, to see what comes up. I am in Lars' category, but I think the average age is lower.

    I guess I am in the "mature" category, but don't feel mature most of the time.

    I imagine the age range depends on the type of forum, but a general purpose forum like FG attracts more mature punters.

    I'm 47 years old, so that'll help counterbalance the average!

    Were I a Camembert, the shop staff would be considering an attractive discount to get me out of the shop and onto a dinner table pretty soon.

    As for Lon? He's a well-hung ham, the sort where people pay a lot of money for wafer-thin slices.

    You have to express remorse first.
