    Just a suggestion. Maybe we already have this and I dont know about it. But anyway.

    Is there anyway you could make a link so we can view how many people are of X amount of age, and how many people are from X state?

    I think it'd be neat to see how many people are in the 20-40 year range, while im sure 1/3 of the people here are 18 and younger.

    I would say less than a 1/3 are under 18....probably even lower number than that. The younger crowd may be more willing to ask questions and make posts that sometimes stir the pot - but definitely not a clear indication of membership...take a look at the bottom of the site on any given day where birthdays are announced....like today for example...the youngest birthday today is 21....here are the ages

    (63) (62) (55) (50) (45) (43) (39) (39) (39) (37) (37) (36) (35) (35) (35)
    (32) (32) (31) (22) (22) (21)

    good point Sean. Maybe the reason that we think that there are so many young people IS because they ask the most questions

    Actually looked it up....here is what I can tell so far since it takes so long to generate lists...

    current members of the site = 34,604 (as of 12/28/05 at 4:30 pm)

    number of members who have revealed birth year = 28,414

    number of members born before 1/1/1988 (18 years old or younger) = 4,103

    percentage of members under age of 18 = 14.4%

    even if half of the 6,190 who did not reveal birth year were under age 18 that would bring the total to 7,198 of 34,604 are under age 18 or 20.8%

    SO, YES, DEFINITELY LESS THAN 1/3 OF THE MEMBERS ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, WHICH DOES NOT COUNT THE ONES THAT ACTUALLY ARE 18
