General Demographics

Postby thegrime » Wed Mar 19, 2014 12:26 am

Another thread (Nim talking about D&D) got me wondering... what are the general demographics of this community?

I get the impression that we are a fairly older crowd, and predominantly male... I for one am male and in my 40s.

I believe you got it right. Why not open a poll and take a census over the people :)
Perhaps the android port might be surrounded by a younger community, due to Google's stronger ability to promote the game to new audiences.

Edit: I'm also thinking..
After all, almost all of us are older leftovers of that florid consumer-grade userbase created by the millionaire marketing campaigns of Microprose and Activion, back almost 20 years ago. Freeciv itself originated its development as an artifact forged by the shockwave of Civilization's popularity.

Hm, for the record, if I rounded the number properly, I should have been in the 40-49 category... :)

32 here, grew up playing the original civilization. I was also an avid player of earth 2025 from swirve games, favouring long gameplay, hence great turn is right up my alley after getting into freeciv.
