Default Birth Year

Recent discussions of an updated time line have brought up the subject of player age. I went with birth year rather than age range as that data can become inaccurate over time.

This is a private poll.

Those who chose to make their year public are listed below

1948:Graebarde

1953:mikeo80

1954: jturfitt

1957:dvyws

1961:Littlearmies

1964:Earthpig,Cdnwolf

1965:weswood,pmulcahy11b,Dogger

1966:Nowhere Man 1966,Ed the Coastie

1968:Adm.Lee

1969:Rainbow Six,Abbott Shaull

1970:Kato13,Mohoender,jester

1971:chico20854,Targan

1972:Twilight2000v3MM,Ramjam

1974:TiggerCCW UK

1975:Marc,headquarters

1983:Haven

1988:CStock88

Nah, you're just a real old fart, Grae

Looks like I'm in the biggest collection of slowly aging gamers.

I debated public or private for a long time but I thought private would get a few more results. Anyone who is ok with their date being public please add it.

If we get a lot of responses I will gather them in the first post so we wont have to scroll through pages.

Well, I'm 1957... Looking at the results so far, I'm nearly all alone at the wrinkly end of the scale.

So in future, I expect some respect from you young whippersnappers!!

You still aren't old enough for that. You would have been been born before 1944 may be... The only thing you might get is a little more backache while sitting in front of your computer.

'68. I read the T2k ads in Dragon during my junior year in high school, we started playing that summer, and I GMed the Poland modules all through my senior year, and got my crew on the boat to the States in time for me to leave for college. I thought it was a marvelous piece of timing.

Probably. Everything changes at the other side of the Pirennes.

'64 for me.....Year of the Dragon and all that Born that is. I don't want Graebarde to get thinking I was old enough to trudge through stinky, smelly, swamp water looking for Black 'jamas wearing commies.(a member of our hunting group was brown water navy in the delta)

I'm the same as Chico - 1971. Halloween is my birthday. I'm still good to go though, staying really fit (probably my vanity is a great motivator). Just got me a new girlfriend too, she just turned 30 and is soooo cute. I just got back to Perth last night from Melbourne where I spent a week with her. I'm a very happy man.

Same here, except that I was an SMP ROTC/National Guard.

In a way, that sucks. I haven't even had sex since Jan 90.

Don't mind me, I'm just really depressed lately.

No but your generation got sand replaced with mud, Don't really know which is worse. As for the brown waters.. those squids saved my ass more than once. LOVED those PBR (boats and beer )

No need to apologise. I understand how you must feel. Just remember that where there is life there is hope.
