I think the fourms started in 1999. 10-24-1999 to be exact, so I am gonna say 8.5 years is the median age.

Is this median life as a human, or total life, including after the change?

Stereotypes about different Forums.

I saw that... how do we know if they are really banned, or just put that in?
Besides being pointless, I didn't see anything they posted that was banable.
