    Yeah just that really.

    I thought it would be interesting to get a sense of the age spread here on the site.

    I'll gladly give my own age in due course, but there'll be a special shout out to anyone who thinks that they can guess it 

    So, how old are you then? And at the same time feel free to tell us a bit about yourself if you like - whether you are at school, college, in work, homemaker etc

    I'm 16, and I hope I can still keep my GPA up with Skyrim coming out so close to my finals...

    Oh and i first started Elder Scrolls at age 13 in 6th grade. A new friend told me about a game where you can do watever you want and if you stole items. Guards would chase you. That game was Morrowind :)

    I am 42, and I envision Paul as older than myself based on the maturity of his approach and outlook, and also because he has the free time to run this site, which is a HUGE amount of work. Just moderating one group is huge, and Paul seems to keep tabs on the entire site. This, to me, says either retired or independently wealthy.

    Neither of those things PJ

    I answered my age earlier (its 52) but I have a full time job and certainly no wealth! But I work from home and I can multi-task a lot. I also put ALL of my spare time into this site

    I'm 17 years old, currently doing nothing, except waiting on possibly most amazing game I will play, ever, Skyrim.

    I just turned 19 on the 28th of October. I'm currently working part time at the local Gamestop and full time as a Cashier's Supervisor at the local Rural King. Looking to start college or trade school next semester. Think about being a modern day blacksmith. They don't get to make cool swords and armor anymore, but it still seems interesting enough. :-)

    I'm 24, I study computer sciences and hope to get into the industry eventually one way or another. I have already "coached" my girlfriend whom I live with to accept that she will see less of me in our own house very, very soon. Got the coming weekend free of all tasks and duties, and my body is ready now.

    Wow, the range of ages that I have seen on here is quite amazing.  I didn't look at all the posts but from I gathered, age ranges from 14 to 48.  I am 29, and still older than the average player on this site.  I am a teacher, no kids, unfortunately no pets (not allowed where I live), and no girlfriend........  so almost no responsibilities taking me away from anything I want to do. So, other than the weekend excursions to try to find somebody significant, I have most of the day to spend on Skyrim. 

    Oh, 29 and single, not the way to go. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    I'm fifteen. No job, I don't even feel like competing with the adults who want a job at McDonalds working 8 hours a day for minimum wage.

    I also seem to be one of the only people who understands how bad the James BLonde movies are. (He doesn't even know how to stalk someone; isn't that part of your Mi6 training?) Don't get me started on the Batman movies... (He typed, not realizing he was getting himself started...)

    I also like to write. (Waiting for Skyrim, I have produced random backstories for my characters, but realized that I don't know enough about Skyrim to continue them.)

    That started with "I'm fifteen," then dissolved into random other stuff. Sorry...

    I'm 19, turning 20 in a month's time. I'll start studying medicine by the 1st of February.

    But untill then... I've got all the time in the world for Skyrim :P So screw all you guys with jobs keeping society going - I get to dive into the game 24/7 for the next month after release !!!

    (Oh, and my 50 year old father actually also uses this account from time to time... so average account age would be something along the lines of 35 years for me lol)
