Anyway, we might discover which forum has the younger membership.
Now the trick is to find out where else I posted these silly ass polls on. ;)

Good luck! ;D
FM has a similarly aged membership and also does have a 93+ year old. Is that you dolina?

3x as many have voted on FM than here.

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? :)

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.

This is not a bell curve, it's a six fingered Canonite coming in from the left flipping the bird. And I'm doing my best to make that bird stick out a li'l bit more.
