Member Age Profile Survey?
« on: January 20, 2019, 11:50:26 AM »

Martin,

Is there any way that the SM software could support an anonymous survey of the ages of members? I know some forums are able to do this sort of thing whereby you have a few options and people can vote just once.

e.g.

0-21
22-30
31-40
41-50
51-60
61-70
70+

Personally I think that the funadamental problem with the model boating we enjoy on this forum and as covered by Model Boats magazine is that people are simply getting too old to want to get involved in organising things and that those falling off the perch are not being replaced. I think we all know this is true but it would be interesting to see what the average age of Mayhem members is and the overall age profile.

   Colin .
              I think you need to amend the age groups


           e.g
             
            71- 80
            81+

I am almost 75, but if there was any suitable water nearby, I would build a radio controlled ship, something maybe two feet long.

I think this will be interesting to see.
I have a feeling the older ages will have more votes than the younger ones/


how many cut or teeth on airfix type kits when we were young?
