Trust me, when it comes to BASIC, forgetting it all is actually a good thing ;)

Oh, I hardly remember it myself, but it was useful to learn concepts like loops and if-then logic at an early age.

i'm new as well and im about to turn 18....finally :D (can't wait to drive)

as for my gaming experience: played a lot of pen and paper RPG, wrote a couple gaming systems myself and got addicted to TBS through Heroes of Might and Magic I&III.

unless the big rest of you i don't know any programming language exept a tiny bit of WML

Ok, at 43 that makes me I guess the oldest around, at least the oldest to admit his age. (but with my kids 11 and 8, the family average is down substantially. They don't have an email of their own though, so they cannot vote in the poll :lol: ).
Actually I got interested in Wesnoth when I was looking for good games
on Linux, so the kids would not be tempted by Windows games...
But Wesnoth runs fine on Windows too, so they are still tempted by
evil uncles who tell them "you can play this under Windows too..." after the kids hook them on Wesnoth and get me to install it on their machines too...

I already admitted to having been born in the fifties in another thread. Which puts me at a minimum possible age of 45 -- and that, in fact, will be my age for about another three months.

Of course, mental age is another question entirely. :wink:

I'll turn 14 on April. I wonder how far down in the age scale that puts me? I just wish I could go to college already...

13! That's the age I was a fat little nerd in middle school!
However, that doesn't represent you, turin. You know, I thought you were a college student from your remarks and maturity!

Although, I should kick your butt for getting all mad at me for my art question...but that's over now. We could be brothers, man! Just like that guy Jacksquat is my brother! (for an idea of our conversations at home, go to off-topic and look at "math question".

Well, all I can say is...
I feel so stupid... :(
