Quite a fascinating response to a question which, when presented verbally, could very well elicit silent disdain or downright hostility. The community aspect of this place surely contributes to this also. I submit my 55 years as proof that a foolishly spent youth ages gracefully eventually.

50 and was thinking along the same lines as Nickie and several others. I can't remember seeing a post by a monitor on this site where someone either was admonished to behave themselves in a post or had their post deleted for improper use of language or treatment of another poster. Threads closed for wandering far a field of the intended posting limits don't count.

From what I've seen on other game forums this seems to be a somewhat rare situation and I wondered if our ages have a lot to do with the way we treat each other.

Hi all,
I am as old as MacDee. Do you remember?Right!
We are 57 - a very good age. I have been very happy since I passed 50. That is something to look forward to, you babies.

Wow! I am so amazed at how many people here are over 40! I am a 33 year old woman. <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" /> When I first found Gameboomers, I figured most of the people would be much younger than me, and male. I was very surprised when I peeked at some profiles back then ('cos I'm nosy) and saw many people listing their occupation as "retired" and mentioning grandchildren, and also surprised that there seem to be an equal amount of both sexes here. Let's face it--the stereotype of a gamer IS a teenaged boy, and I was guilty of assuming that was the type of people who were here. I was just so glad to find that I was wrong, and that I am not alone in being the only adult female who plays computer games! I swear, people in "real life" look at me like I'm nuts when I talk about my gaming hobby! Thanks to my fellow adult gameboomers, I know I'm not crazy!

Hello I'm 45 (at least for the next few days.)

People like wine do improve with age ... and I think people are maturing later as well. In terms of how to behave as part of society rather than how soon can they do adult things.

Cheers, Peter.
