How old are you? (update)

So basically the "how old are you" thread but with a better, more realistic age range.

I was just thinking that the age demographics of different kinds of forums are really interesting. I have been on a very different kind of forum before where the age range was more 30 to 60. 30 was considered relatively young. Most of them were in their 40s to 50s. Then we had a few who were above 60.

Whereas over here on potterforums, the range is more 15 to 30, at least with the more active members. With a few over 30 but not many.

mcpon wrote:Yeah, I know it, lol. I narrowed it down to 25 or 26 after counting back to it. Or 27 if you count year 0. But what counts as year 1? I just never was able to figure it out.


I was confused for a moment and not sure what you were talking about lol. But it suddenly occurred to me what you mean.

Well, if you were born in 1988 for example, then it means in 1988 you were 0. Well, gradually increasing number of months old as time passed in 1988 till your birthday in 1989, then you were 1. So this year would make you 26 if your birthday this year has already passed.

Was that what you mean?

Don't you guys feel like once you pass 20, time seems to fly? And I mean really flyyyy. It seems like it was January only just a while ago, all of a sudden it is June! Half a year gone just like that. Where has time gone?

don't you need to know your age to fill out on forms?

Re: How old are you? (update)

^ Ditto! My 33rd birthday is in September, but I still feel like a big kid (and I certainly act like one whenever I can get away with it! :P) I have friends of pretty much all ages, from my friend's kids (aged around 3 upwards) to 60s+ :) .

Re: How old are you? (update)

I too can't stand to think about getting older. I wish I stayed early 20s forever. :( It helps I have friends who are older and when in a group of older friends, I get doted on and can get away with things just for being the baby of the group. Makes me feel like a little kid even though I'm not really. :lol: But who cares - I shall just continue to revel in being the baby of the group!

Now, what I would really like to know is who was that person who submitted '40 and above'? I'm curious to know!

Re: How old are you? (update)

I'm finding it interesting that so far the 25 to 27 range has the most votes. I expected a younger age range to be leading.

Re: How old are you? (update)

Perhaps that age group is higher because we were at the right age when Harry Potter first came out to read the books and then see the movies? We were there from start to end, coming in at the right time and right age, younger people come in perhaps later and start reading after the movies have already started and a few books were out or whatever, which is cool, it is still happening now. Just a guess lol

Re: How old are you? (update)

Yeah, I was kind of thinking the same thing. If you were 10 years old to about 12 and grew up with the books from the get-go, you'd be in your mid/late 20s by now. I love it actually! We were kids then and now adults, some even with families! People like you can totally pass the love for HP down to your kid. It's crazy, but in a good way! :)


Andddddd I'm still wondering who was that one person who put '40 and above'. I have a rough idea but I don't know if i'm right. :think:

Re: How old are you? (update)

I will definitely be passing Harry Potter down to Logan, and any other kids Jamie and I may have since we both grew up with the books and loved them and enjoyed the movies as well.

I have no idea who would be the person over 40, but that is so cool.

How old are your kids, if it's okay to ask? I can't imagine any kid being too old for Harry Potter. What does that make us?

No, I'm 20 now. 21 in a month's time. You're not funny. Just stop.

I agree with Pretty_Twisted, I think the fact that the most popular age on here so far is 25-27 because people in that age bracket were the right age when the books came out. I was about 8 when they became popular which was about when PoS came out as a film, but then by the time I'd read all the books, I was in high school and was really obsessed. I remember having to wait for the last few books, OOTP onwards. I joined this forum originally in 2009 when I was 16, I seem to be at the younger end of the 'popular' age range on here, but it does seem a lot of people in their 20's!

Re: How old are you? (update)

So the "original" HP fans who grew up with the books are mostly now in their 20s. I can't wait for the age range to keep increasing. I hope by the time we're all in our 60s, 70s, 80s, we would still love HP.
