Hm. You can't change your vote once it's cast. I've moved up a bracket since February.

THE VOTING SYSTEM IS FLAWED.

THIS IS PROOF THAT DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST HERE.

I was 23/24 when I first started on SongFight. Now I'm 27, later I'll be older. I've come a long way in that 3 1/2 or so years. And yet...so....far...to....go...

If you check the chart... there's only one of me, and there seem to be enough of "us" that one person doesn't actually count. It's sorta like voting in Florida (sorry, Hobs).

It's an old chart. It sort of loses some meaning when people fill it out over a two-year period. I mean, I was not yet fifty when I answered, but I am 52 now. And Mad Dog is older than me. So, technically, we're in that zero percent category as well.

Remember that this poll was started many years ago. I suspect the average numbers are higher now.

And Spud is 56. Although there might be some value to the graph over time of people who answer the survey. When I answered it, I was 32. I am 38 now.

Well, is there any usefulness in locking this thread and starting another? Maybe a yearly survey?
