HAF Age Distribution Census
« on: July 21, 2016, 06:45:41 AM »
I'm sure that there will be some dissatisfaction with how this poll is laid out. A 36 year old may not like the idea of being lumped in with 40 year olds, for instance. Suggestions for improving it will be considered. I'm not telling whether I voted already or not . ;)

I'm in the 30-35 demographic. Mid-1985 model.

Late '59 here.

Waiting eagerly to see if anyone clicks the "over 100 yrs" button.

I just noticed one problem with the poll, there are two options for 30 (and 20, 40, 50...). :P I would have liked to have chosen the 30 grouped with the late twenties but now I'm officially in my thirties, so...

Likewise, there are two options for every mid decade.

Maybe edit it so that it's

10-14
15-19
20-24
...

I lose myself infused in something more than what they've seen
I'm not a slave to greed
I don't embrace your make believe
I've never been for sale no matter what they think I need

I thought the ambiguity was a feature, not a bug.  :)

I'm willing to change it if people want the ambiguity removed.

No one 30, or younger, yet?  :unsure:

Khool thread. I predict that our ages are distributed all over the lot. So much the better. To hell with generation gaps. We are all in this world together.

Depressing. :(

Not even The Asmo, who is notoriously Omniaged, can claim that slice of the cake any more.  :(
