Poll: How Old Are You?

Post by person » Mon Oct 04, 2004 8:59 pm

Hi. I go by the name of person (note the lower case "p" :P ), a relatively new Oolite player (starting to like it, though).

I thought I'd just start a poll to figure out how old people here are exacly.

oh. thought you made it public you had moved on to a new bracket. ;)

I'm not sure what science we can gather from this poll.. that a few were grownup when OG Elite cam out, some not yet born, and most imbetween..

Yeah, sad to say, I was already old enough to have known better when I got addicted to Elite the first time round!!

Still, they say you're only as old as the woman you feel... :wink:
Very funny, Scotty, now beam down my clothes...

That only saves me a couple of years! :wink:

I'm 36 btw. First played Elite when I was 13.

Cheers,

If I vote now, I'll be able to offset the mean a little from the 30-ish group.
Next month I'll be undeniably in the 'old' category. ;)

ps Notice how the distribution follows almost exactly an exponential curve at first?

not quite, the run-up is too high.
drop-off after the peak is linear.

Possibly a finer group-size as well as a greater population size would pull it into the expected gausian bellcurve.
I suspect, however, that there will always be a bias towards younger ages, causing a 'bearded' peak.
