True, but those aren't too accurate. My profile says I'm 100; a lot of people lie about their age. I also HIGHLY doubt that 34% of the members, even the non-regulars, are female. Remember people multi-account and make stuff up all the time. I do think most people are white straight males 18--24 though, so income less than $25K is probably predominant. Who knows what older people actually tell the truth about their income (if they even fill it out at all).

I agree its not entirely accurate. The form I form I initially filled out doesn't even have my ethnicity as an option. The age thing is probably skewed as well. But I don't see any reason why 34% of members are not females. It does seem about right.

There are barely any active females compared to the number of active males.

Yes, there are A LOT of males on DDO. I would say( I'm just making this up based on being on the website) out of 50 DDO members, 2 will be female. :)

That might be exaggerating a bit. I can think of 7 active female members off the top of my head.

I just looked at the religion demographic, and it would seem that in that respect, i AM the 1% haha.

This would be my best guess too, although i think the average age has dropped a bit over the last bunch of months.

An interesting point to note is that this was meant to be an American site more than an international one. The choice of presidents, ideologies, ethnicities etc does not make sense for a person living in a different country. So when you include those stats from various other countries, the data becomes skewed.

It shows the potential this site has, potential squandered by a series of bad owners.

A way to check he demographics of participation is to use People > Members Online. When I checked, there were 42 members on line, and all 42 claimed to be male. I think that many more females register as members than participate.

The site is heavily weighted towards young people. The good part of that is that not everyone has ideas cast in concrete. The bad part is that there is too much "oh look at me" posturing and ranting.

What a shock, as one of the few educated members of this board it does not shock me at all that a majority on this board are uneducated high school idiots. Not a surprise to see that is true.
DDO's marketing strategy has certainly paid off just not sure I agree with the target market: http://tinypic.com...

Considering your signature, it would seem like most of them are a lot more mature than you.

Sorry, but Izbo10 is a magnet for immaturity. He seems to be the embodiment of immaturity on his own right, though...

Izbo actually thinks someone else on this site is educated? Now there's a shock.

All the demographics are right here.
http://www.debate.org...

True, but those aren't too accurate. My profile says I'm 100; a lot of people lie about their age. I also HIGHLY doubt that 34% of the members, even the non-regulars, are female. Remember people multi-account and make stuff up all the time. I do think most people are white straight males 18--24 though, so income less than $25K is probably predominant. Who knows what older people actually tell the truth about their income (if they even fill it out at all).

We have a lot of people in the 15 - 18 age range. I wouldn't be surprised to see that as the largest age demographic.

I'd say 15-30 year-old males.
