Age of Wesnoth Players

Post by Dave »

I'm wondering how old Wesnoth players are in general :)

I'm 23 myself, how old is everyone else? What's the average age of the Wesnoth player?

We have one user here who is registered and below 12.

I know this because when a user registers who is under 12, I get an email telling me, and they have to get their parents to sign some form and send to me to comply with some law called COPPA.

You've got to be kidding me. Dave, your posts have the intelligence of a 40 year old. turin, I'm surprised you can find the time between your homework and studies. I won't give away my age for privacy reasons.

Wow Turin, I would've thought you're in your 20's, you're very mature for your age... Plus I hear they eat their young in Texas :wink:

Good solid 18 here.

Wait, Turin's 13? That's unexpected.

I'm 19 myself.

Well it certainly isn't me, so that narrows things down a little...

I know someone who's going to turn 23. I'm amazed that I might be the same age as Dave, he seems so mature and organized and .... Reading his posts I thought he would have many more years of experience beneath his belt.

Okay if there is one thing I don't think I've ever been accused of before, it's organized ;)

Miyo and others do a very good job at keeping the project organized. Personally I'm awful at it.
