So who goes in there and changes the number when your birthday comes around???

Re: Average Age of CoS members

Howdy Pards,

Well, I reckon I've been all those ages on the poll at one time or another... right up to the 60+ part. But, I hope I'll always be young enough at heart to enjoy a good book, or seven, like Harry Potter...

J.K. Rowling's works are truly magical...spinning their spells on all ages.

Yep. You don't have to be a teenager to enjoy the tales of Harry Potter... some of us were teenagers when dinosaurs still roamed the earth!

And, now, here comes The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. From experience, let me caution that chocolate frogs will melt in the heat of Florida during the summer time. Best to take those frogs out of the collectible box and eat 'em before they melt or worse yet hop away.


Just ordered Dumbledore's wand, and a Harry Potter light tipped wand, and a Gryffindor Mug to add to my collection mostly cause the WB Shop is celebratin' the Weasley Brother's (Fred and George's) birthday with 20% off their regular prices on April 1st and 2nd. I figure I saved a little over $25.00!




Ah...I love the anticipation of the arrival of magical Harry Potter stuff in the mail. Brings back memories of times long, long ago... Kinda like Christmas.

Well, adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

Wild Ol' Dan

I've been proudly sorted into Gryffindor!!!

Brilliant! Unfortunately I'd have to wait until my 2 kids go through and then see what sort of money we had left. But something worth saving for definitely!

Shhhhhhh. That's a secret too.

I do like the idea of the house elves. Brave, loyal, strong magic. Mmmmm. *goes off to find Kreacher*

I'm 29 and clinging desperately to my last month of "youth." I like to think of 30 as the new 20 anyway.

Agreed!

I was just wondering. When I hit the age of 21, will I be in the 21-25 group automatically if I'm still active in cosforums?

Re: Average Age of CoS members

I'm 27, and I actually only started reading the books when I was 24. I saw my first HP film when I was 19, and my first GOOD HP film (IMO) when I was 23 (incidentally, GoF was the last film I saw in theaters with my last girlfriend, and CoS was the last film I watched on DVD with my first, both on their suggestions). I've been variably told I look at least 16 and at most 20 anyway, and that personalitywise I'm every age between 19 and 91 (typically closer to the latter), so I'd probably fit right in with both the younger and older crowds.

Re: Average Age of CoS members

18 (joined at about 15 I think).

Can't help laughing at the "Refuse to say" option - surely that would only be necessary if partaking in the poll was compulsory, because as it is, if you don't want to reveal your age you can just choose not to take part in the poll?

You mean will your vote change to the 21-25 category? Nope that's impossible.

Re: Average Age of CoS members

I'm fifteen, but there isn't any option here for fifteen! It just says 'Under fifteen' and after that, '16-20'. )
