    i say 26...no reason

  2. Uninvited Writer profile image83
    Uninvited Writerposted 8 years ago

    I'd say closer to 36.

    I'd say late twenties, early thirties.  I feel generally old here smile

    I would say somewhere in the thirties....

    I feel a little young here, but thats all good...

    My Guess: Early to mid thirties.

    It's a shame you can't use the poll capsule in forums.

    Amanda Severnposted 8 years ago

    I'd say 35 to 45, mainly because I know that there's quite a few more senior hubbers, and an average is an average.

    Maybe Team HP could do an anonymous survey.  It's a good question.  I think the average age might be higher than the average for sites like twitter, facebook, and myspace, and higher than we imagine here.

    My guess is from nothing other than the impression I'm under, but I think I've seen a lot of people in their forties on here.   It seems to me as if there are more early-twenties showing up recently.

          I've seen more than a few people older than you, two, so - who knows - you and Ghost may actually be more average than you'd guess.  smile

            Oh heck-- I was hoping to be above average in something.... and  then someone mentioned that God was here. I suppose that would make all averages irrelevant.

            Maybe we need to revise the question to "human mortal ages"... but then what about reincarnation??

    depends on the forum.  over in religion it's a safe bet to say pre-teen is the average.

  12. Lisa HW profile image78
    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    Rochelle, in order to figure out how to make you above average we first need to figure out what's average - and from there I'm sure someone could mess with some figures, specify that ages must be human/Earth years, and maybe even place you in the "above average" department.   smile  Of course (no disrespect intended to God, by any means); but we need to know if Jack Frost, Santa Claus, Father Time or Larry King are on here (because if they are that would need to be addressed too.  smile  )   (Just a note:  I'm not very far behind you in the age department, which is why I didn't think the references to ages-old "beings" would be offensive.)

    this is a third question in the row. May I ask you all to fill in my age survey hub and I can help answering this question as much statistical accuracy.

    sandra rinckposted 8 years ago

    like an average is in a median or average as in a combined age of all hubbers divided by the number of hubbers? 

    Well I will just guess... 38

  18. Rochelle Frank profile image94
    Rochelle Frankposted 8 years ago

    Does it matter?

    Maybe it does.
    The minimum age for participants here is supposed to be 18-- though I have seen some great comments and contribution from many who have identified themselves as younger.

    I would guess the average as about 40, maybe more. I know there a lot of 20 and 30 somethings, but there are a few of us who really pull up on the average.

    I wrote a hub about being 50 when I was a sub teacher in a blind class. For some reason they thought they could guess my age and missed it by only -15 years.

    This would not have happened if they could have seen me, but I was sitting on the floor with them sharing silly riddles. This may have influenced their literal perception. So how old was I , really?

  19. Lisa HW profile image78
    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    50 is the new 40 - no, the new 35.  So that sounds about right.  wink

      How awesome, Lisa, that will make my 55 a super duper 37.5...I can live with that... the only problem, if I'm 37.5 how do I explain my 35 year old son, my 31 and 19 year old daughters??????
      hmmmmmm I got's-to  put some thoughts into that one.

      1. Lisa HW profile image78
        Lisa HWposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        That's the beauty of it - you don't have to explain any of the figures!   lol     In not all that many years my son will be passing my "36"  (which doesn't translate exactly to my unmentionable age, but it's close).  He and I have laughed about it, know it will happen one day, and apparently have decided it's how aging works sometimes.   lol  (This method of calculating age is a little less evil that just lying about age.  It's "re-figuring" - which is a-whole-nother thing.  smile  )

  22. HubChief profile image79
    HubChiefposted 8 years ago

    Thank you so much marissa posting the link.

    Statistically I got 17 people on vote so far, not a big sample.

    the median age for 17 hubbers is 42,  i.e. about 8 hubbers are 42 or less and 9 are more than 42, assuming data is true

    Weighted average is 45.

    the variation in the median estaimtes can be +/- 3 years based upon the class sample.

  23. Gennifer profile image63

    They all are very different... But in average I guess about 35-40...

  24. Gin Delloway profile image32
    Gin Dellowayposted 8 years ago

    I don't know exactly, but I think it should be about 30 years old.

    P.S. Though statistics in Marisa's hub shows another picture.

    i actually think a lot of us are a lot older than we wish we were.  However when on hub pages, because we are accepted by everyone, it relaxes us, we become as youth with all the experience.... i am 21 on here, 52 away from here help..... i have 7 grandchildren.... in my head though i am in my 30's...... does it matter what age we are.... does it really matter....... not on line anyway.... there you have my views.... did you realise i was an old woman... my grandson beside me is 12.... he thinks i am ancient... ha ha

  28. mcbean profile image79
    mcbeanposted 8 years ago

    I would say the average age of those who have been around for a while on hubpages is greater than the average newcomer. It seems patience is a trait lacking in many of the younger hubbers and there must be a significant drop out rate.

    you have to be mature to understand just what hub pages has to offer in my opinion..... the young ones will probably be back......... maybe when they are older, and we are dead and buried......  xxxxx

    well it is a fun place of course.... that is the thing about hub pages..... it can just be a fun place.... but for some it is their work......


    If i was younger, it would not appeal to me on all the levels it does, but i would nip in and out of it every  now and again. I do take hub pages far too seriously as it has been a life line for me through some horrible times.

    Maybe when i don't need it soooo much that will be good for me and everyone else..... it is a fun place though it really is
