    Anybody have any speculations about what the average age here is? I was thinking about 21-26 or somewhere in there...

    I was thinking more like 21, since there are a lot of 16-18 year olds here. There are not that many in their 20s but then quite a lot in their 30s and some in their 40s.

    not sure about the average age, but i've always thought of MR as being 'young'. is there any way you can search the list of members and calculate the age? maybe one of the demi-gods could help?;)

    i'm 18 in case anyone's wondering...

    i know there are a lot of teens, and a lot of young people. I would venture a guess at around 24.

    there are a few older posters like wdlove, mr anderson, and me who bump up the average age of the frequent posters, but definitely from what i have seen in over three years here is that macrumors is dominated by an average age floating around high school age to about age 25

    in life after that, the full time working world swallows up many people and most don't have the same time for online hours as the kids

    but in my case, no matter how busy i am, i always find a way to get on here at macrumors whether it's at home, work, school, internet cafe, friend's house, or at a computer store and that's how i keep my daily average to a respectively high five posts per day:)

    we should do a weighted analysis, so that 100-year old who posted once doesn't skew the results. now, that genius 2-year old who posts all day might wreck the curve...

    I am 20..

    Also, I guess I assume most people here are males? Is this correct? Not to be sexist....

    There are a number of females as well, but yes, the majority of us here are males.

    I'm 39, it's good to be ahead of the curve for a change, anyone know who the oldest regular poster is?
