Ages of Mizaharian Players

Postby Siana Skyglow on May 1st, 2010, 3:39 am

I've been wondering for a while about the average age of Mizahar players. It seems like the depth and complexity of Mizahar's lore and the emphasis on excellent writing, roleplaying and character development should attract older, more mature players than you'd normally find on a roleplaying site. At the same time, maturity isn't always necessarily proportional to age. Just because someone is young doesn't mean they can't be just as insightful and gifted a writer as someone ten years their senior. Besides, with the influx of new players joining Mizahar seemingly every day, I'm especially interested in seeing where the average age falls on Mizahar.

(I'm sure Tarot can probably dig up this information just by, well, by being Tarot. ;) But for someone who loves useless information but isn't Tarot, this is the best I can do. I'm almost tempted to create other polls in the future in an attempt to create the ultimate Mizaharian census and see the geographic/gender/ethnic/what-draws-you-to-Mizahar distribution. Maybe someday!)

If you want to show your exact age, feel free to reply with your age. The poll stops at 50 because I'm pretty sure no one on this site is quite that rich in years. I look forward to seeing the results!

I'm eighteen right now. However, I've been able to churn out good sized, detailed, and grammatically correct posts since I was thirteen years old. GOOD STUFF.

I'm 17 years old. I'd say I probably belong to the group that doesn't churn out writing that's very impressive. I've always been known to follow a highly minimalist style. However, it definitely has nothing to do with my age (though I'm unsure whether 17's meant to be young or old).

I did try to get info from the database, but it turns out only about 20% of our accounts include the year of birth, so this thread is very useful.

I would have included a 51+ option, so some of the Founders won't have to lie about their age. :p

A very interesting idea, indeed.

I'm 17 and I don't really care about how the quality of my writing compares to my age. The most important thing to me is to know that I'm getting better. So when I look at things I wrote a few years ago, I can honestly call those pieces horrible and say that I've improved a lot since then. ^^

And I had no idea how wide the range of ages here really is! That's very cool.

Hey, I didn't know Malia was 17!~ This makes me happy, for I am 17 as well.

Hurray for 17 year old comrades!
