Btw, on Facebook I had a 14yr old who is my friends little brother ask what disc golf was. Some things just seen to come and go in few generations.

What the fuck is disc golf? Huh

And the median age in developed countries is closer to 40 than 30. So as far as the general population's concerned, the forum does skew young.

I'm going off the age of the average internet denizen, not the average population of any given country.

Yes. And that is a statistic nobody knows.

Is it younger? Probably. Nobody knows.

You wanna make this place look old? Give TTA an IRC chat. No honestly, I really miss having one here, I would prefer that over the shoutbox.

What is the purpose of this... shoutbox? Consider

It's place where people talk about their rather boring lives (myself included, but not so often). And it's a place where people overuse similes; that's why I prefer IRC.
