    Post Some Statistic Questions

    I just have some questions about the statistics of our little forum and I'll just get right to them:

    1. what percentage of the forums population is Female? (This may sound like a sexist question, but I've always been supportive of Minorities gaining popularity, The only person I know on here thats female ((I think)) is Anna)?

    2. What percentage of the forum's population is non-Caucasian (aka not white)?

    3. What Percentage are non-Americans?

    4. What percentage are above the age of 18?

    If I'm allowed to know of course, Again these may like bigotry but they are not in any, more like the exact opposite. I've always been interested in Social Demographics in Cultural Niches, specifically Alternative ones like geek sub-cultures

    Very odd and searching questions!

    1. I think very small, but it's hard to tell with nicks and we don't really ask, we're only really interested about mapping enthusiasm. We did have a brilliant artist/writer who won a previous challenge (the glass ocean), but she came and went. I'd like to think she was Elektra Assassin or someone like that.

    2. I'm Indian by descent...so there's one.

    3. Who knows? People choose to put their country of origin in their personal info or not. Yours is very exact locationwise

    4. We did actually have a chat about this on the moderator's forum, only because I thought I was very young at the age of 43! Turns out, I'm not so young after all (drats), and the average age is something like 30 something.

    Canadian Caucasian male (British Isles heritage) here who hasn't been 18 in such a long time. Here is a link you might be interested in:

    Male, Caucasian, Texan .... (Irish/Native American) and though my physical incarnation this time around has seen 34 years my soul is older than Belgarath and I refuse to actually age until I've perfected the previous year, so that puts me somewhere like 13 ....

    If I remember correctly (which I might not be), that would put you somewhere over 7000 years old eh?
