So what is your age ?

JimbobWWFC
12-10-2009, 12:47
Did you ever learn to do surveys at school? You can't have 15-20 as well as 20-25! :D What if the person is 20 years old??

mightymind
12-10-2009, 12:50
you r almost right, you can be 20 and 5 months and 20 and 7 months, ha ha !

What does "your age for playing FM" mean? The age you set your in-game manager to be, or your actual age?

Also your categories are ambiguous. For example, where does a 20-year-old put himself? 15-20 or 20-25?

I am 20 and am in a world of confusion as to where i should cast my vote

Maybe he thought that if person is closer to 21, than should choose '20-25', and if persons just had it's 20th birthday, then should choose '15-20'. :D Just an idea! :D

Hmm, i doubt you really considered this when creating this poll :thdn:

Also, what about 20 years and 6 months?

This is pointless

mightymind
12-10-2009, 12:53
it's your real age !
and soory for the confusion, no matter if you are 20 and you put in the range of 15-20 or 20-25.
If you are almost 21 than put 20-25, if you just got your birthday celebration, than put 15-20 !

Then obviously if you're 20 years 6 months or more then it would be 20-25 as it would be over half a year then, for 20 years 0-5 months it's 15-20. :D
I'm 30, nearly 31 so I went 30-35. :thup:

No need to tell your age, I guessed ( no range for you sorry )

Ah but technically at 6 months you are into your 7th month as 0 months count, 0,1,2,3,4,5,6. I know I'm being pedantic now but meh. ;)

Haha fair enough. :D In this case, it kinda depends on how far into you the 7th month you are then?? :confused: Anyway, mightymind, how old did you guess I was?

Wee Aja
12-10-2009, 14:15
Actually, I'll go with 25-30 because that puts me in a younger age group. :cool:

Are you 40 years and 6 months then?
Two people have put over 56 years old but not posted in here, I wonder if they're telling porkies. :rolleyes: ;) I'd just be interested in finding out the oldest member of the forums, just because then I won't feel old when I'm still on here when FM40 is out.

Nah I'm only a mere 22, so I have no problem with which age bracket to select. :) I think that mightymind can see who has selected which option, as he created the poll

Not a very well set out survey there, what about if you are 14? You don't fit into the 'less than 14' category or the the '15-20'. Same goes if you are 56.

p.s. Strangely I am double 14 and half of 56.

Clearly a 56yr old doesn't fit in the 'less than 14' category Kenco, that comment was just silly. - Hehe

Not in the least. I'm not even sure I could answer the thread title with a yes anyway.

Yes, I enjoy FM games, but am I proud of playing them? I suppose I'm proud of my time management skills which afford me time to play them, and I'm proud that I can take a BSN/S team to Premier League and Champions League Glory in approx 20/25 seasons. But proud of playing? Probably not.

peter-evo
12-10-2009, 18:29

What I meant was that 56 doesn't fit into any categories either.

anyway great poll ;)

Nice poll! So every year you age past 25 and continue to play FM, the less likely you are to get married and have kids and a career.

Good stuff!

I'm 22. My mate had Championship Manager 97/98 and I begged my mum for a PC for Christmas that year soley for that game. I was addicted from the start! I've had (and played to death) every SI football management sim since. So I started when I was 10. I even remember that my first signing on Championship Manager 97/98 was Thierry Henry for 17 million for Milan from Monaco. I didn't have to pay that much but I loved the fact that you'd get a news item saying that you broke the world record (with the previous record having been Alan Shearer's 15m move to Newcastle at the time) :)

I later bought Championship Manager 2 just for the sake of having it and as I bought the Football Manager magazing when that was being published, I also owned the original Championship Manager too. So I've had every single game (except for the Italia version between 2 and 97/98 - or did I imagine that existing?).
