45 - 50 checking in. I'm around the last age group to have been fully grown and established in the 20th century. I got my first Internet connected PC when I was 29 and got my first smart phone when I was 36. Technology has literally split my life's history in half at this point. If we end up in a new dark age with no electricity due to an epic solar flair or the unintended consequences of a successful boogaloo I will probably still have the skills and mentality to prosper...but my music collection is about 84% digital so I will be looking for some fucking payback.

Wow. I feel like I'm too old for this place lol. I'm 56. Just got tired of all the left wing sjw bullshit infecting every sub on Reddit. I don't post much (don't really know how) but I enjoy reading the comments

      me and a few others here are younger than you then, you're not quite the youngest in the room. i'm going to assume you're in the 20-35 age group, which seems to be the most common on saidit.

        i am indeed a home invader. me and the others are waiting for the perfect chance to strike. you'll never know what hit you

        This is an analytical discussion of the average age. Just because you don't fall in this predicted (and arbitrary) range doesn't mean you don't belong here. Everyone belongs here.

        [–]hylia 11 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 2 fun -  (7 children)

        Perhaps 25-35?

        Edit: I’m 20-25

        [–][deleted] 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (6 children)

        maybe a little younger? i'm only a teenager and it's possible other people around my age use the site too. or maybe older people tend to use the site.

        [–]Raavan 13 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 0 fun14 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

        It takes some effort (and will - most people come here because they're tired of reddit) to find this website and it's not that active, which I guess are the main reasons why many teenagers are not here. Most of us teens want unending content, infinite scroll etc. which Instagram and reddit are happy to provide. People who want a small community to just chill out with, also find their way here. Not your average teenager probably, because their needs are satisfied by mainstream media.

        [–][deleted] 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

        true, i'm content with not having unending content though. i prefer to have conversations with people rather than to share memes and stuff. a lot of the "content" on reddit was just reposts anyway. it's also because a lot of memes just aren't fucking funny. it's way more enjoyable to talk with people and hear actual jokes other than "wacky random text with spongebob reaction image"

        [–]Raavan 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

        Reddit memes stopped being funny a loooong time ago lmao. Ifunny is a much better source of memes especially if you know good accounts to subscribe to.

        [–][deleted] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        reddit memes are literally just the same formats over and over again. redditors love to take credits for jokes even though almost all of them come from ifunny

        maybe a little younger? i'm only a teenager

        I don't think most people here are that young, at least on my feed. I think most people here are 20-35.

        [–][deleted] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        maybe, most of the people that have commented said they're at least 20 and up. i guess my age group isn't too common here

        [–]medium_tomato 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

        I actually feel like it might skew older than reddit at this point, 26-40 maybe. Just because of the big migration and us older people remember the wild west internet days and value free speech and good discussion. People in the 18-25 category are much more okay with no privacy, and blatant censorship. I started on reddit when I was 18, and am now nearly 30. Sadly there is a huge difference in 18 year old users today vs before.

        Edit: just wanted to say that I am not looking down on the younger generation. Just sad for them that they were raised in the "real name" era of internet and their parents monitoring content. Of course plenty of the young people still value those things.

        [–][deleted] 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

        People in the 18-25 category are much more okay with no privacy, and blatant censorship.

        absolutely, it's mind boggling to me how some people are like this. it upsets me knowing how people near my age are following this behavior too. i'm in the 13-19 category and i see people my age be ignorant like this all the time. i'm happy websites like saidit exist and i hope more people in my age group join it.

        [–]medium_tomato 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

        Sadly your parents generation (genx-older millennials) kind of failed you on that front. My gen has had the "don't give out personal info online" drilled into us since a young age. When Facebook became more mainstream I was appalled and confused at people openly using their first and last names on it, saying their city, school or work. It got even weirder when FB actually started requiring your real name vs made up names or whatever some years back. I have hope that the younger gen finally gets sick of everyone's policing, doxxing and getting fired and even college admissions being taken away just because of social media. Maybe we can all slowly turn it around..

        [–][deleted] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        yeah, unfortunately no matter what i do to try to explain the importance of privacy to my parents, they think i'm delusional and ignore my requests not to post pictures of me online. they tell me that social media companies spying is fake and that they have nothing to hide and nothing to fear. but when they eventually realize that posting a picture of every stage of your child's life is a mistake, they won't be able to do anything about it. it seems that my generation is doing the same. kids that aren't even 12 have instagram pages and post pictures of themselves without knowing the consequences, simply because their parents do the same. i truly hope we can turn this around, we'll end up in a world where everyone publishes everything about themself if we don't.

        [–]Britain 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

        Same here, I’m in that 13-19 category and all my friends are pro censorship

        [–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        yeah, it sucks people our age have to think that way

        [–]dissent 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        This is what I feel also. I believe the avg age here will be slightly older and it's people who won't put up with shit anymore

        [–]forgottenpasswordguy 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

        I'm in the 20-25 bracket

        [–][deleted] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        it seems like 20-30 seems the most common. that's the most frequent one i've seen.

        [–]theFriendlyDoomer 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

        I'm 36.

        But, yes, I'd agree that 20-35 is the bulk of everyone here.

        [–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

        wow, i don't think there's been a single person under 20 yet lol. you might be the oldest so far, impressive.

        [–]theFriendlyDoomer 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

        Well, you'll live to be this age one day. . . Or it would be sad deal.

        Getting older. . . it beats the alternative, as they say.

        [–][deleted] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

        i don't really mind getting older. only thing that really seems bad about it is losing some physical capabilities. certainly beats being dead

        [–]evanscence 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

        20 years old here. I dont believe in the visions of reddit or any social media platform.

        [–]Raavan 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        I'm almost 20 and so are many others so 20-30 is a fair guess.

        [–]dazzledot 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

        I’m in my mid-30s. I’m guessing (probably incorrectly) that 25 and under is the majority.

          finally someone in my age group lol. i stopped using reddit for talking with people for that exact reason. the amount of censorship on reddit is unreal

          [–]Tom_Bombadil 1 insightful - 5 fun1 insightful - 4 fun2 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

          33

          JK! ;-)

          [–]Girlwiththeraventat 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

          25-35 as well.

          [–]Tea 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

          If reddit is 16-22 or so then I'd say saidit is probably 20-26 or so.

          [–]kfn 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

          I'm 31... old enough to remember when the internet was fun.

          [–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

          what are some things you miss from the fun internet?

          [–]kfn 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

          The most fun I can think of was trolling Hal Turner with 7chan. Thousands of skype calls into his radio show that pretended to be serious at first then dropped some inside joke catchphrase, at some point he knew all of them and sometimes would still engage and try to convert the troll over to be a white supremacist. This was 2006/2007... a lot of what happened is lost to internet history.

          [–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

          sounds hilarious lol, makes me wish i was born earlier to experience that lol

          I'm 18, going on 19 soon.

          i think you're the first person under 20 in this thread lol

          [–]Adallindis 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

          In the 15-19 bracket here. Not giving you my precise age because I'm paranoid lol. The community here definitely seems a fair bit older and more conservative than Reddit.

          [–][deleted] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

          agreed. the community is generally more conservative than reddit, but the nice thing about it is how different viewpoints are generally respected.
