[2013] What is your age ?

Fri Jan 11, 2013 9:06 am

The former poll was agregating datas from 5 years, so was not up to date.

So let's try with a new poll :)

My age? Too young to have patience with most games these days, and too old to have enough time for them. Somewhere in that age bracket.

I leveled up 5 times since last poll. I feel so much wiser, but I lost quite a number of points in many others stats.

One thing I've noticed about getting older... sex, drugs, and rock and roll do not increase cohesion. They might temporarily affect morale, but cohesion? Not so much.

Growing old means losing your military genius and fast mover stats and instead you get to pick up slow mover and hated occupier. Nice switch there. Does wonders for the ego.

I voted in the original poll 6 years ago! :blink:

21 and less than a month of being 22

Kind of weird, I am usually one of the older people in game demographics, here I feel so young.

Good to see developing the expected "fat belly" distribution... :mdr:

Strange how I started in 2007 in the 35-39 range and this year will skip to the 45-49, though... :bonk:

If the graph is resembling a 'pot bellied' shape, then the 60-64 year bar must be the...? Oh well, it does not matter as we can not see it anyway.

Age thirty-five: that means half the course,
Like Dante, we stand midway in life;
Our youthful verve, vigor and resource
-Wanton is our plea, in vain our strife-
Drift away blind to tears of remorse.


Look at my temples, are they snow-clad?
O my God, is this wrinkled face me?
These eyes rimmed with rings purple and sad?
Why are you now my arch enemy,
Mirrors, the best friends I ever had?

All this change is more than I can bear:
None of my pictures here could be mine.
Where did all those days of joy go, where?
Can’t be me, this man smiling benign.
It’s a lie that I’m free of care.

Out first love looks hazy, far away,
A memory driven from our heart.
Friends who set out with us on life’s way.
Took separate paths and strayed apart.
Now our loneliness grows day by day.

Odd, I find out that the sky can turn.
Into other hues, that stone is hard.
That the waters drown and the flames burn,
And each new day brings a painful load-
All these at thirty-five I could learn.

Autumn, quince yellow pomegranate red;
Each year I feet it’s closer to me,
Why do these birds circle overhead,
And these ravaged gardens that I see?
What funeral is this? Who is dead?

Immutably death is all men’s fate.
“Slept, never woke,” will be the story,
And who knows where or why or how late?
You shall have but one prayer’s glory
On the throne-like stone-bier while in state.

Cahit Sıtkı Tarancı



Hopefully times have changed from past. Regards to all people in older age playing&enjoying games! :thumbsup:

I voted for the next age bracket with a few month in advance to keep the poll up-to-date for the next years, but doing that I'm approching dangerously the old timer category! :p apy:

I've not changed of tier as I answered not too much time ago. The difference is I'm in the middle of my bracket now, so... well, it's reassuring in a weird sense.

WHEN I was one-and-twenty
I heard a wise man say,
‘Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away

’Tis paid with sighs a plenty
And sold for endless rue.’
And I am two-and-twenty,
And oh, ’tis true, ’tis true.

—A E Housman (1896)

An poem (abridged), on the price of wisdom.

I'm 43. Five of my great-grandparents lived past the age of 95, so I once had inflated ideas about my longevity. None of my four grandparents made it to 90, so my outlook is now more realistic. My life is now between 50-99% over. I've made it at least halfway, I reckon I'll make it to the end.

I knew my father's father's mother (my great-grandmother), and her father was a colonel in the American Civil War. It trips me out to think that I knew someone who knew someone (to say the least) who fought in that conflict. (My great-great grandfather was Colonel Thomas E Champion, who led the 96th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He had no male children. My middle name is "Champion," after him. I had many more relatives who fought for the South, I'm a seventh-generation Arkansan.)

Hey ho! Found myself in the neighborhood and thought I would drop by. Since I'm turning 60 in only 2 months, that would be the age bracket I chose this time around. I have plans to purchase CWII for my birthday present. I'll be back!

I'm with you! I got AH "Gettysburg" as a present for my 7th birthday, while Lyndon Johnson was still our president. I'm happy to see from this poll that people substantially younger than myself are still interested in our hobby.
