Please don't post specific ages, for saftey reasons.

This ought to give the fans (and Cyan) a good idea what age groups of people are playing Uru.

If you are older than 27, simply place your vote in the 23-27 age group.

If you limit your poll to 27 and under you'll miss most of the people I've met in the cavern. I believe you need to go to 70, at least.

How do you edit polls?

18-22 seems a bit odd too. It's usually 18-25.

I don't remember how to edit polls on phpBB either, unfortunately.

I edited your poll to say 27+. Would you like it changed?

Thanks Ryan. That's fine.

I put it in 5-year intervals.

i agree there should have been a higher range... i'm in my 40s, and i know of several that are in their 50s or higher. i feel a little excluded ... :P

I'm in my 40's as well and found this poll rather humorous. This is Uru. The number of players over 30 is quite large. I remember the old Uru Obsession poll listing ages. It was quite the spectrum...from less than 10 years old to 70.

I'm in the 40+ range too LOL. Lots of us around, you know. ;) So, yes, I found it funny too.

I'm way, way beyond 40 and didn't find the poll humorous. In fact, my demographic makes a point of not being part of the baby boomers. We'd rather not be lumped together. So I agree with all the grumbling above but more so.

I shouldn't eat lunch while I read these forums. Some of this stuff is quite a chuckle. (excuse me while I clean off my chin and the keyboard). :shock:

In my mind I'm 23-27+ maybe even less, but my body tells me different, way diffferent. The great thing about the community is that it really is very diverse in many respects not the least of which is age. But I'm happy to stay at 27, or 23.

Being in the 40+ range myself (42), I also found this poll rather humerus to say the least. :roll: :lol:

I agree that the range of Ages that play Myst is quite broad indeed, not to mention the diversity. I have met players from as little as 7 to as high as 80+ playing in the cavern. I have met families, college students, teachers, white collar and blue collar, mothers, father and grand parents ... from all different backgrounds, spiritual and religious beliefs, to those with varying degrees of disabilities, right down to sexual preference and origins ... from around the world.

Yes, indeed ... we are a very diverse group. :D

I fit into the 13-17 age group. As requested, I won't post my exact age, but I'm just about to graduate junior high school.
