    So, I was wondering, who is truly the youngest active MacRumors member?

    I thought that one needed to be 13 and over to sign up. So, I'm sure, 13. And anyway, this is kind of a creepy thing to ask... predator-magnet much?

    Plus there's always the 18-and-under threads, I've seen a few in my day.

    I remember that I started reading AI in 1999 (I was 14), and MacRumors I think in the next couple years after that...

    Well, all I know is that I'm too old to be cool anymore, and not old enough to be officially a Creepy Old Guy™ yet, so I'm indefinitely stuck in the "who is this annoying a**tard", anyway?" group.

    Sorry, I didn't want to come across like a 'predator-magnet' and wasn't aware of the age limit. I was just interested in the popularity of MacRumors with the 'younger generations'...

    ummm rude and crazy-suspicious much?

    If the thread's making you concerned about ishoos like that, this ain't the way to address them :rolleyes:



    OP, i think there's some pretty young people here. I believe the youngest I've come across is about 14, and I think they're not a lone case, so it would seem the age range goes right to as young as they can be <shrug>

    Interesting question. Would be fun also to know the oldest--if there's mac-wielding grannies and grandpas out there, I'd sure love to know :D

    Mac-wielding grandpa here, but I'm certainly not the oldest: there is at least one 74-year-old, but he only posts in the PRSI Forum, and he doesn't actually have a Mac...

    Hey, don't ask him such complex maths questions, he hasn't even learnt addition yet, let alone division..

    I joined the forum when I was 13, back in 2006. I'm 15 now, so I know I don't qualify for the youngest.

    I think Mammoth joined when he was 12, around the same time I did, and PowerFullMac is 13, I think.

    Finalday, I don't know about 48, but at 68 I definitely qualify. :eek:

    16 over here, so not one of the youngest, pretty sure i'm near the average instead.

    Wasn't there a thread about this some time ago? I reckon someone mentioned they were 12. Oh and lets not forget we have an 8 year old as an active member :D

    I joined in October 2007, when I was still 13.

    *looks at 1,520 posts*

    I think I need to kick this habit. :D

    Joined when I was 14, am 15 now (Been here for a year and a bit). Definitely not the youngest but in relation to some of the other members here, I'm sure I'm a scary ruffian in their eyes ;)

    Haven't had a Mac as long as I've been here, though. Stupid Mac-owner wannabe days... blindly arguing how Macs are supreme although I'd only ever used one for about 2 hours in total :p

    I'm 14, 15 in September. Yes, that means that I signed up almost a full year ahead of the rules.

    I was probably the youngest for a little bit. Not anymore, though.
