How many of these surveys are you running.  Each with a different statement.

"CR is probably the most active Canon forum outside of Facebook. I am wondering how young everyone is."

"FM is probably the most active Canon photography forum outside of Facebook. I am wondering how young everyone is."
I protest! Those are similar statements!

You mean CR is not a *photography* forum, just a Canon gear collector (and bashers) one? :D

Indeed, you are correct - they are very similar. And, the logical deduction is probably either CR = FM or CR ≠ photography forum but = just a Canon forum.

Anyway, we might discover which forum has the younger membership.

If I were to right a script to count how many posts with pictures vs without pictures are made per user then it may come out that way. ;)

Although I wouldnt do it out of respect to Craig who pays the bills around here.  ;D

Everytime a rumor comes out you half expect Hitler to be mentioned directly or indirectly. ;)

Now the trick is to find out where else I posted these silly ass polls on. ;)

Good luck!  ;D

It looks you posted in DPReview as well, but the post has been removed.

Istorya?

Maybe somewhere else, but until Google crawls...

Anyway, here often we discuss photography without posting images - I don't have my catalog always available.

I had it removed because I excluded the 1999-2017 option.

Didnt repost it anymore because the initial results was pretty much the same.

Well the 60's/70's is taking the lead.  Not a very scientific poll (only shows the age of those who answer not the age of those on the site so it can be very misleading) but it's interesting nonetheless.

I guess the Fuji and Sony mirrorless crowd are mostly 7 to 12 years old kids? :)

The Sonys are slightly younger by a decade. :)

At the time of this reply, the results were something like 32% and 44% in the middle two ranges of 38-74 yrs old respectively).  That's 74 out of 96 (or the vast majority).  Merging the two categories into one and the data showing the older group as the larger bias, you could weight them to slightly biased towards the older group.  So non-scientifically about 55-60 yrs of age as the main "peak" of the bell curve. 


...roughly the margin of age when expendable income has peaked, midlife-crises are occurring or have just occurred, and professional careers are peaking (all of which would lead to bad GAS - or good GAS, or just GAS).  GAS likely being the main contributor to forum membership?!??

44.3% are between 56 and 38. The peak has visually to be younger than 56, not between 55-60. The peak is closer to 50.

Oops, you're right, I inverted the two groups by percentage.
