I'm doing a project with standard deviation and statistics. I'd like to do standard deviation for the ages of gamers. If you don't mind me including your age for this project, post here or PM me. Thanks.

I'm 16. Some people have their ages on their public profile, if that helps.

What PaperLuigi said about profiles.

Although, the major problem with just taking profiles at random is that it might jeopardize the validity of the poll itself.

14, I'm really out of ideas to say anything else, because all this thread is asking for is an age and I don't usually make incredibly small posts, but what I'm saying right now makes it worth it so .... whatever.

I don't think TMK FF is a good representation of the general gaming populace though.

As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

Because internet predators can so get you by knowing your age. OOoOooOooOoo
Seriously, predators "hang out" at places like MySpace, where kids just put all this information about themselves out on display for people. Video game message boards? Unlikely. Too obscure and too much of a "challenge." Regardless, nothing can happen just from telling someone your age.

Anyway, I'm 19.7.
Personally, I think having birthdates is much more effective than knowing ages, since ages change; birthdates are constant. Also, it's easy enough to just check people's profiles and the calendar.

Besides, predators want to kill attractive and popular kids that everyone on earth would be in an uproar about, not stupid fatties who love to play withn their easy-bake ovens. We're perfectly safe.

I would assume, however, the near exact birthday of you can be determined with the ".7" part of you age. Just multiply 365x.7, and then that is how many days it has been since your birthday... from there, do the rest of the math.

Uhh, 1) Suffix used a decimal in his age before you did:
16.9
2) I would've put a decimal, regardless if anyone else had. I'm big on including "extra months" of one's life, like "[age] and a half" or "almost [year older]". Giving a decimal is more precise and less "lame"-sounding/looking.
