Re: Average Age of CoS members

21. I joined when I was 18. I grew up with the films but I read books 1-6 in one go when I was 18 and fell in love with them proving that you don't have to have grown up with the books to like them (as many other older people on here prove!)

Older? lol... try 47.
Interesting to see that the ages are fairly well evened out; though with a slight peak in the teenage section, and a bit of a dropoff after 40.

Not that age matters all that much here on a forum, but ... almost 50 in July.

(that's OK - I'm happy to be exactly the same age as Snape, LOL)

I'm *cough* 50. It still feels weird saying it, even though I'll be 51 in June.
Teehee, no shame in that, dear.

Actually i think this may factor as to why i know i will be sticking around on this forum. It's nice to see members my age and older! Makes for good conversation!

Re: Average Age of CoS members

I love the title of the thread - my average age is nearly 26 (meaning I have spent nearly as much time older than 26 as I spent younger than 26)

That's because we're one unity. Once you join, you loose you identity and get inhaled into the mass that is CoS without any chance to restore your very own age, personality, mind (and chocolate)...

Re: Average Age of CoS members

I hit the wrong button while voting on the poll, . I'll being turning 20 next month. I started here when I was 15, but started Potter five years before that.
